Simon Say Stamp Challenge - Coffe & Cream

Today I can even show you one more card. Was I busy or what? :o) The theme at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog, Coffee & Cream, was so inspiring that I couldn't resist to create this card. And I tried out the paper piecing technique once again which is so fun to do.



With this card I also want to join following challenges:

Fussy and Fancy - Embossing or/and Paper Piecing
Totally Papercrafts - Paper Piecing


Paper Sundaes Challenge # 58 - How Charming

Happy Sundae everyone! Welcome to Paper Sundaes a new challenge today. The theme we have today is

How Charming

We would like to see your creation featuring a charm or metal embellishment.  

Lacey from Stamp and Create will give this week's random winner a $20 gift certificate to her fabulous store!

So, what are you waiting for. Let your craft supplies moving and play with us at Paper Sundaes. To get some more inspirations take a look what fabulous creations the DT did.

My card I made with one of the amazing Sweet Pea Stamps from the Ching-Chou Kuik's Fantasy Art Collection. She is called 'Spring Night' and comes as a single stamp, or on plate # 53 with three other beautiful images.





With this card I want to join following challenge:

Totally Gorjuss Challenge # 69 - Black and one other Colour

Hi everyone, we have a new challenge going on at Totally Gorjuss. The theme is

Black and one other colour

Well, to be honest, I really had some difficulties to make a card with just two colours. I even made two cards and ended up with having a third colour, sigh! But with such images like this Kenny K. one it is hard to colouring just two colours.  

So, I am looking forward to see what you're doing for this challenge if you like to join. It is worth as always as we have a lovely price to win. For more inspiration pop over to the DT to see their wonderful creations.

This week I got the new Stamp Kit 'Spring' of Whiff of Joy. There are so sweet images to play with. I love Elizabeth Bell's images so much, so I will have lots of fun play with them. I started with this cute image and wanted to join the Whiff of Joy challenge as well. They are asking for the technique 'paper piecing'. I love this way to add the addition of the same paper to the image like I use in the layout. Here you can see the result:

Goosey Gander

Hello everyone! I hope you had a good start into the new week.

Today I want to share another new card with you I just made yesterday. I felt so inspired by the new challenge over at the Sugar Bowl that I had to create something for it. There is a sketch and an inspirational photo to follow, you can see below.

Those wooden flowers and the goose are on my stack for quite a while now. I never had the right card to add them to. But when I saw this cute stamp of Sugar Nellie I knew imediately I have to have it, and my first creation I will do with it have those embellishments as an accent. And so it was.
