I like this christmas stamp

Hello and thank you for stopping by. Another day a new Christmascard I want to share with you.
For this card I used a hunter green cardstock as base and put on it some golden sparkly paper and some very nice red-christmas patternpaper on top. The image is one of my new favorite chritmasstamps I own. Its from a german company called HEINDESIGN. I just love that stamp and think it freaking cute :) I colored the image with waterbased crayons and my watertank pen. I colored the edges of the image with my stamppad in a bordeau red. To give the image some extra spot I used my liquid pearls in dark red and put it on the small reindeers nose. I layered the image on the same papers I used for the base and the other parts of the card as well.IOnce again I used for this card some of the golden holly stickers I have. I made a border with 2 of them on the left side of the card and a small one in the right left corner. To finish the card I attached 3 dark green brads.
I hope everyone will have a great week.
I hope you like the card and HAPPY CRAFTING :)

The advantage and disatvantage of a cold

Hello and Thank you for stopping by!!! Due to the fact that I caught a cold and have to stay home to recover it now...that was the disadvantage of my cold ( and that I can´t craft while I am sick ). The advantage is that I finally have the time to blog a bit more.Some of the cards I want to share with you this week will be christmascards I made before I got sick.

The first card I want to share with you is a very simple and elegant card. For the base I used a bordeau cardstock and put on it some holly-patternpaper that I cut into three pieces and let little gaps between them on the cardstock.On the little stars on the pattern paper I made little liquid pearls in the middle of each star.On the edges between the pieces I put stickerlines to give it an elegant golden touch. The golden tree was cut out from a sheet with ornaments I got years ago from a crafting colleague. I layered in on some white and red cardstock. For the finish I put two little golden hollystickers on it and finished everything with 3 golden brads on the bottom part.
Tell me what you think?
I hope everyone will have a great week.
I hope you like the card and HAPPY CRAFTING :)

I am so very sorry!!!

Hello and Thank you for stopping by!!! I am very sorry for haven´t blogged in over a month. My new job kept me very busy and so I didn´t had much time to show you cards I created in the meantime on this blog. PLEASE forgive me!!! I will try to better myself and blog more, but I can´t promise to do it reguarly, but I will try my best.
As appology I will show you some cards I made during the past months with my new StampinUP Owl-punch that I got for my birthday this year.
First here are some cards I did with owls on it :)

And on this card for my great friend Anne-Marie ( she makes fabulous cards , make sure to check out her blog here) I made a small pinguin for her and made the card in a winter-theme as she LOVES snow ( I really don´t ;) ha )

Next are cards I used the Owl-punch, to make small tulips with it. You can find the tutorial how to make them on Valitas blog.

And finally I want to show you a card I just made this evening. As I showed you in a post a few months ago , you can also use the punch to create really cool roses. I finally took the time to make a card with (sorry Anne-Marie that its purple). I think it turned out pretty good, but let me know what you think about it, please.

Don´t hestitate to comment and let me know what you think about the cards I made with the owl-punch.
I hope everyone will have a great week.
I hope you like the cards and HAPPY CRAFTING :)
