Moo hats

Playing around with the new distress paints and some other fluid acrylics here´s what I came up with for the latest moo challange

The stamp was a freebie from a stamping magazine. dusting away unused and being very sad about it, so I had to give the stamp a chance.
Yes I know it is quite colourful - needed a contrast to the white outside
Isn´t it great to be waked up at 6.30 am on a Sunday morning by snowplows :)

going away

The topic Travel comes to an end at de stempelwinkel so I made this postcard with lots of stencils and distress inks

I have been to most of the places but there´s still one open - want to guess?

journaling page week 12

This week came my new favourite stamp from dark room door and I had to use it (yes, sometimes I am like a little child :) ) and here´s what I made

I distressed and dylusioned the background and used some old Tim Holtz stencils - filling them with black acrylic colours. The funny guy was stamped separetly and adhered with gluestick - like the postage stamps.
The embossing folder is by Tim Holtz as well.

Wish you all a happy day,

it´s always good to come home

I do not know about you, but I love to come home - no matter how great the trip was.
Being around my own things - having a kitchen where to cook my daugher´s favourite meal (pasta with ham) and eating real good bread (sorry my foreign readers, I have to say it, but the German bread is something I miss most when I am abroad).

calendar page week 11

Now let me introduce to you my week 11.
Apart from the Paris postage stamps (Oxford impressions) all other stamps are from de Stempelwinkel. I used a cuddlebug die for the stamp form and an old airmail envelope

Hope you have a great day. And in case you are fighting a nasty cold as I´m doing now for 3!! weeks, get well.

RED for the Scrappy Frogs Challenge Blog

You see right - seems January was my lucky day concerning DT and here I go with a tag for the Scrappy Frogs Challange. Come and join us here:

I used dylusion ink sprays and a stencil for the ghosting technique. Stamped this really cool guy (100 proof press) and "decoloured" him with bleach.
The rest was stamped seperately and cut out (de stempelwinkel).


With travelling as a theme for this month I made this card for de Stempelwinkel

Just have to admit it, I love this stamp.

Go to our blog and you can see where to get it

NMWC Ribbons and bows

As some of you might have realized already I was honoured to be part of the NMWC Design Team until June 2013.

The topic for the current challange is ribbons and bows, so why don´t you join us? You have time till the 24th February, hope to see you there.

My contribution is a grungy tag, hope you like it

Stamps by de Stempelwinkel and cherry pie. The lock was stamped into hot wax (using versamark first), die cuts by sizzix-Tim Holtz. And I have realized - stamping into hot wax is a lot of fun and gives a lot of dimension.


Having seen so many wonderful Moo´s  from Susi and others I thought I give it a try

What a funny size.
Stamps from Kaisercraft, Katzelkraft and invoke arts.
