Eerie ??

24Jun12

I’m not sure whether I’ve got the meaning of the word “eerie” perfectly right. But when I looked at my postcards I found some old ladies that made me shiver. I used them to make a little ATC for Macabre Monday (Eerie Elegance). On my ATC you can see aunt Erna and aunt Agathe (in […]


I’m in a hurry today. So, I post just the images of my cards and the challenges I made it for. I’ll try to add the other stuff later. The Sketch at Sketch Saturday was so fabulous that I had to made a card. The next card was made with the Sketch from Sunday Sketch […]


Happy birthday

19Jun12

Die Kreativen Stempelfreunde feiern ihren zweiten Geburtstag und haben daher genau das als Thema und dazu noch einen Bloghop. Ich habe mit dem Hüpfen gerade erst angefangen, aber die Karte habe ich schon fertig. Da ich mir mit dem werkeln nach Sketchen ziemlich schwer tue, übe ich das im Moment. Dieses Mal musste wieder der […]


It seems that I stuck on this card layout – I love it for its simplicity and its versatility. This time I made a card with some butterflies that I cut out from an box. As I wasn’t able to cut out the tiny antennae, I made some with wire and beads. For the background […]

Sometimes, I want to make a card to enter into a challenge. It involves a lot of planning, collecting ideas, thinking about the images and the colours and searching for the best papers. But in the end, I’m not totally happy with the outcome. This time, I wanted to make a card for the Card […]


Inspired by the beautiful blue tones from the Photo Inspiration at the Winter Wonderland Challenge, I made this card. First I also wanted to use a candle image but I decided to use a Freebie from Inger Harding. For the background images I used a paper napkin and glued the coloured layer onto a piece […]


To be honest, I’m not sure, yet. Sometimes when I can smudge some part of the card, it seems to be an easy to go card. Just one layer of cardstock, a stamp and some inkpads. But this time I wanted to make a more organized card. And here the trouble started. At the Less […]


Wenn Jemand eine Reise thut, So kann er was erzählen; Drum nahm ich meinen Stock und Hut Und thät das Reisen wählen. Dieses Zitat von Matthias Claudius habe ich schon so oft gehört – und sind wir ehrlich: Wer mit einigermaßen offenen Sinnen durch die Welt geht, hat wirklich viel zu erzählen. Das Thema “Reisen” […]
