Happy Holidays

Thursday, October 20, 2016

Hi Folks,
Just a short post to share my latest Christmas card. I got once more a lot of inspiration of Laura Bassen. I love her cards... 
For the background, I blended Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade onto some Strathmore Bristol Smooth Paper. The star die is from Simon Says Stamp - Among the stars  and the sentiment belongs to one of my favorite stamp sets from MFT - Hand Lettered Holiday
I got luck on my last card with Simon Says Stamp products, SSS re-posted my card on Instgram. First time this happened. I guess the bright colors helped a bit :)

Have a great day !

Sumpin's Wrong...

Monday, October 17, 2016

Hallo zusammen und danke fürs vorbei schauen. Dieser kleine Racker hatte ich als Digi Stempel vor einiger Zeit ausgedruckt. Das Motiv ist von Mo Manning - Sumpin's wrong.  Bemalt habe ich Ihn mit meinen Copic Stiften. Der Drache im Hintergrund ist eine Stanze von Simon Says Stamp, leider scheint er nicht mehr verfügbar zu sein. 

Morning and thanks for stoping by. I got this digi stamp for some time it's from Mo Manning - Sumpin's wrong. I colored this little man with my Copic markers. Love his face expression... The kite in the background is from Simon Says Stamp. Unfortunately it's not available anymore. 

Ich wünsche euch einen guten Wochen Start. Ich arbeite noch diese Woche und dann gehts nochmal in Tauchurlaub nach Gozo (Malta). Freu freu !!! Dies wird unsere Aussicht sein vom Hotel.

I wish you a great week and for me just this week working. From Saturday on I'm on holiday for diving in Malta Gozo. Yeahhhhhhhh !!! This will be our view from the hotel.

Good Morning
2 weeks ago I got my Simon Says stamp order and got some awesome inspiration from the card Laura Bassen came up with using the die set Christmas Cheer.  I blended 4 distress colors together (tumbled glass, twisted citron, peacock feather, picked raspberry). The die cut sentiment is also from Simon Says Stamp - Thankful. The snow flakes are embossed in white. 

I hope you like my colorful winter card. 
Thank's for stoping by.

Good Morning,
I hope you like my colorful card today... I used my distress ink (Picked Raspberry - Squezed Lemonade - Mermaid Lagoon) and blended the colors together. After everything was dry I added some water splaters on top of the ink. The flowers are from the Paper Smooches - Get outta of town set. 

Vielen Dank für eure lieben Kommentare. Ich wünsche allen einen sonnigen Tag. 
Hier noch ein kleines Souvenir aus meiner Urlaubwoche in Ägypten.

Guten Morgen 
Und schon sind die Ferien wieder vorbei... Ägypten wow ich schwebe immer noch auf Wolke sieben. Wirklich einer der schönsten Tauchplätze auf Erden ! Wir wurden verwöhnt und haben viele Hammer- und Weissspitzenhaie gesehen. 
Jetzt aber zuerst zu meiner Karte, diese habe ich für die Hochzeit vom nächsten Wochenende gebastelt. Simple aber doch elegant. 

Good Morning, 
I'm back from amazing Egypt, time went by so fast... I'm still dreaming of the breathtaking dives we did the past seven days.We saw several hammerheads and white tip sharks !! 
Now back to my card. I have a wedding the coming week-end and this is my gift card for the bridal couple. Simple but elegant.

Fish Birhtday & Holiday pictures

Tuesday, September 6, 2016

Good Morning, 
I hope your week started well off. I'm sharing a birthday card this morning with a self made background. Some of you may now that I love scuba diving and therefor also love fish :) I used the stamp set Quite a Catch from Gina K. Love how this fishes all look so happy... The circle die cut and the sentiment are both dies from My favorite things. Die-namics Stitched Mini Scallop Circle STAX and Die-namics Happy Birthday. I die cut the happy birthday sentiment 4 times. Simple but fun card. 

And to finish off this post some pictures of my last dive holiday in Egypt. I was there in May.
I'm going back to the same place this week-end. Amazing scuba diving for 6 days in the red sea.
