Mixed Media Canvas with the cute STAMPlorations Birdies :)

This little canvas has been sitting on my shelf since July, I just realized that I hadn't posted it on the blog yet. 

I used Gelatos for the background and a Dutch Dobadoo stencil for the circles. The beautiful birdies are from STAMPlorations, the words are from PI.

Just in time ...

The last day of the wonderful annual event at the Tim Holtz Blog!

I do love the technique with the acrylic paint and the foil, makes it look so very special :)

Please excused the poor quality of the photos, it's raining out of buckets :(

Winter Dreams

A little something for a gloomy day. 

It's stormy and raining at approx. 8°C, this is NOT what I want for winter, I want sunshine, snow and freezing temps, well, not too freezing, just low enough to let the snow stay :)

I used the steam punk owl from Viva Las VegaStamps and Darkroom Door stamps for the background. The sentiment is from the "Words" set from Art Journey.

Have a wonderful Sunday, make the best of it, maybe snuggle up on the couch, that's my plan for later in the afternoon ♥

The wreath ....

Just finished the wreath for Advent. 

This year hubby had chosen the ribbon, I really love it :)

I'm responsible for the reindeer, just too cute, aren't they? 

I cut the stars with the Sizzix "Moon & Stars" die, applied Distress Stain and Rock Candy.

Happy Mail for my Birthday ...

Beautiful cards arrived for my Birthday, I'm such a lucky chick :)

Thank you, Rosie and Ira ♥

.... and yet another beauty to show you. I received this card from Martina along with 2 wonderful cat dies, how did you know I loved cats?

Thank you so much, you all made the day special for me ♥

Hello there ♥

Good morning, crafty friends.
Before we all get into the annual hectic of creating Christmas cards, decorations and home decor, I decided to make a sunny and warm canvas.
I used Gelatos for the background and some Gesso with stencils, I stamped my giraffe and the sentiment on tissue. All done :)

Christmas Hanging

Ok, you remember yesterday ... the mess on my table? 

 Well, I just finished the Christmas hanging, it's even a bit three dimensional, I added some polyfill between the two layers.

It is hanging in our kitchen window now, but I wasn't able to take a good picture there:(

 Happy Crafting, ladies ♥

Come on over to our challenge blog and join in the fun, you can't imagine all the stuff that fits on that tiny little piece :)

Can't wait to see what you come up with!
 Here is my take, on a MOO, of course ;)

I used Rubber Dance Stamps :)

Love Tag ♥

I created this tag using a sentiment from Rubber Dance Stamps and chipboard from EyeConnect Crafts.

I used a stencil for the background applying Grungepaste. I had colored my tag with different distress inks.

A little close up of the embossed heart .....

*K* is for Kitties

Well, I love kitties, so I participated in the challenge at the Sister's rather funny, snarky and lovely place again :)

This is the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers, in case you don't know :)

I'd feel ok with those too :)

This is my take on the challenge ♥

I used the new set from Rubber Dance Stamps *African Animals* and the Darkroom Door background stamp *Chicken Wire*.  The sentiment is from a set from Unity Stamps.

Thanks for stopping by ♥

Star Garland

Star Garland with EyeConnectCrafts and Rubber Dance Stamps ♥

This week I received my huge load of EyeConnectCrafts Chipboards and instantly knew that I would used the Lace Up Stars first!

I Used Rubber Dance Stamps *Pines Fir Yew*

  I decided to leave the stars connected to apply Gesso and Perfect Pearl Mist *Biscotti* on both sides:

Time to pop them out :)

I used *Metal Magic* Embossing Powder from Debbi Moore, I love it, it's quite "chunky",

A bit of Distress Ink on the edges.

I used, what we call *Bouillondraht* here in Germany to connect my stars, and decorated a Christmas Tray.

.... and the complete tray 

Happy Crafting!
