Birthday Wishes


Hello everyone!

I made this card to send birthday wishes to a very close friend.




I stamped a few flower stalks on a white cardstock, cut it slightly smaller than my base card and stuck it on this one. Then I stamped and fussy cut 2 flowers and gathered it with a few leaves to a small bouquet which I glued in addition of a small strip of black corrugated paper to the card.
...and I added some pearl pen dots to each flower center.


Hope you had a nice day!

Ahhh .... Nuts!


Hello everyone!
We have a new challenge at the Dream Factory! - This month's movie is



The Nut Job
Operation Nußknacker - Opération Casse-Noisettes

Mainly squirrels and nuts --- maybe combined with a dog or a rat or a racoon .....I belive they are also very interested in these little crispy things! 😉





I choose this squirrel (Whipper Snapper), which seems a bit dubious in front of so many nuts, hazelnuts and peanuts.

I first colored my image with colored pencils and then with felt-tip pens. .... I have the impression that the image is more nuanced?!?!
Then I sponged the background with Tempting Turquoise (SU) and glued the image to a yellow base card.


Well, I hope you like squirrels and hazelnuts - you have 4 weeks to play with us.

Happy stamping!

Do you have time for a little aperitif?

Hello everyone!

I do not know if it's in your habits but here in France, we drink aperitif for the weekend or for a good news, when meeting friends and neighbors or when we have something to celebrate - thus, very very often! hahaha
Today I would like to share this recipe that is super tasty and super easy to do!



Smoked salmon or smoked trout 
Mini croissants





You need:


1 roll of puff pastry - 6 slices of salmon or smoked trout - 1 egg yolk - dill



 preheat your oven to 410°F or 210°C or Th.7

Cut the puff pastry into 12 parts and cut a slit in the middle of each piece at the opposite of the tip. 
Place salmon or smoked trout on the parts. 



Open this slot



 ... roll a croissant without over-tightening and give it the typical shape.



Place your croissants on a baking sheet covered with baking paper.



Brush the croissants with beaten egg yolk,



...and bake for 15 minutes at 410°F or 210°C

Let them cool slightly before serving!


!! You can replace the salmon with ham, which is also very delicious!! 
Spread a bit Dijon mustard on the puff pastry before putting the ham on it and then proceed in the same way!


Bon appétit!!

Autumn Colors


Hello everyone!
Time for a new challenge at House of Cards!
This month we want to see Text and/or Colors on your cards. (see the inspiration photo below)



... here is what that photo inspired me!


When I saw the photo, it immediately reminded me the beautiful  autumn season - warm and bright colors, which you will find on my two cards! The leaves on the first card are die cut from colored cardstock and then glued on the embossed background. I added an autumnal text and a piece of gingham patterned paper.



Text and/or colors




On my second card I created a little autumnal scene - a tree, a deer and some mushrooms on white cardstock. I stamped the first part of the text below the deer, and the second part of the text on a strip of vellum which I have torn at the lower end. I stuck it on the left, between the panel and the vanilla base card.


Have a great weekend

Merciii


Hello everyone!

First of all, I'm delighted to greet two new fans - be very welcome, Kristie and Doris!



...and then I have a new creation with cats from Katzelkraft for you!


This time I worked with the set "les chats russes"! 
The wall is made with a stencil from Scrap Plaisir  (I also used it here)
I dyed white structure paste with red and brown acrylic paint to get almost real looking bricks and colored the joints in gray.
I "sat" a cat onto the wall and masked it. Then I stamped some leaves behind the cat, sponged the sky with Tempting Turquoise (SU) and added two clouds with the same ink. The two other cats are fussy cut. I glued them to the card after coloring the soil. The whole is colored with felt-tip pens.


Thanks for visiting.

Happy Birthday...

...to my dear brother in law!



Hello everyone!
Today I come with a Birthday card. 


I stamped an masked the dogs, sponged the wall using a stencil, stamped the flowers next to the dogs and colored all with felt-tip pens. I sponged the sky in light blue and stamped the sentiment on a white paper strip which I cut and stuck to the card.
All stamps are Katzelkraft exept the wall (stencil from Scrap Plaisir) and the sentiment (Stampin'Up) which means something like: Another year smarter?

It's a cute card but still enough masculine.


Wish you a great weekend!

Christmas Visions # 4


Hello everyone!

Fourth and last card for the Muse Christmas Visions challenge.
It remains the beautiful wreath of Cornelia - look what I did!




...so easy to do!!
I stamped the sentiment on a white paper rectangle and embossed it. I die cut the wreath. 
I stamped and fussy cut two pine cones and three holly leaves. I glued all to the embossed panel and then to the base card. I added a few red pearl pen dots to the holly and a tiny bow, made with bakkers twine. 



Have a great day and thank you for visiting!

Water Dwellers


Hello everyone!
We have a new challenge at the Dream Factory! - This month's movie is


Splash

All water dwellers can be used .....including mermaids 😉  
... and we look forward to your works!



A very quick and simple card.
I colored the image with felt-tip pens and added some tiny fishes. I cut it out and stuck it on a white card on which I first splashed black ink. I stamped the sentiment on a white paper strip, ripped the ends and glued it underneath the image.

I discovered this image on Pinterest .....it was very easy to draw but sorry, I can not mention the artist - I was not able to find him. If anyone recognizes this drawing, please let me know.


Have a happy day!

Christmas Visions # 3


Hello everyone!

I'm back with number 3 for Muse Christmas Visions!
For this card I was inspired by the graphic and the colors of Cornelia's stunning deer.



I stamped the penguin three times side by side and drew a garland which I colored with felt-tip pens. 
To recall the black and white border of Cornelia's card, I added two different stamps and drew a black line to give a seat to the penguins.

...a few stars in the sky and that was it!


Have a great day and thank you for visiting!
