Magical Birthday Wishes

Hello everyone!
With the theme being "Fantasy" for the new Papercraft Challenge I decided on using this "Sweet Dragon" image and the "Blank Book" by "A Day For Daisies" who are sponsoring a $8 prize for their online store. This is the card I made with the two images combined:


I love giving books for birthdays (to people who love to read) and my favourite genre is fantasy, so i thought it would be a perfect opportunity to create a card for such an event. The background was made using Distress Inks and a lovely stencil by Tim Holtz.


After stamping the sentiment I added a few drop of glitter glue to some of the bubbles and my card was done! I hope you are going to join us with a "Fantasy" project as well. Have a fantastic and hopefully sunny week my lovely crafty friends! Happy crafting, yours Maike

Spring time fox

Heya everyone ;o)
Winter has been long eneough now, don't you think? So we at Challenge Up Your Life want to see some spring themed projects this time! I decided to create a birthday can with this lovely Penny Black stamp that has so many spring-elements combined:


I cut the coloured piece of paper down and added a metallic blue border around it by swiping the ink pad along the edge of the paper. It does look really cool and shimmery in real life. I added it to a card base that I had created by die cutting the panel piece two times, scoring the one in the back at about 1 inch from the left and gluing them together. Sometimes I really enjoy a different card base, don't you?


Lastly I added the strip of red paper with the white embossed greeting and my card was done. I'd love to see you "Goodbye Winter" card, layout or other project in our gallery at Challenge Up Your life. Let us fill the blog with springthemed happiness ;o))) Have a fantastic weekend and happy crafting y'all!!! Yours Maike

Big Panda Hugs

Hello everyone!
How are you today? I hope you had a good start to the week and are looking for new crafty challenges. I have one for you if you like the colour "Green" which - incidentally - is the theme of the newest task at the Crafty Cardmakers ;o) This is my inspiration card:


Even though I chose to go with pink letters, my card is mostly green and think that the two colours work really well together. I have tried it with green, black and white letters, but the card ended up looking kind of blahhh, so it had to be pink ;o) 


I hope you are going to join us with a (mostly) "Green" project over at the Crafty Cardmakers gallery ;o) Have a fantastic week and happy crafting! Yours Maike

Komm Einhorn, wir gehen!

Heya everyone!
"Crazy" ist the new task at Challenge up your Life and this is the card I made for inspiration:


My German sentiment says something like "They are all crazy around here- come on, unicorn, let's go!" and I love it! It makes me smile everytime I read it! ;o) For the background I have used a new stamp of mine by Gummiapan and stamped it in rainbow colour, because rainbows and unicorn simply are awesome together - at least in my world.... 


Also glitter is a super addition for both unicorns and rainbows ;o) So I glittered the mane and the horn to give it a lot of sparkle! I would love to see any "Crazy" projects from you in the Challenge Up Your Life gallery! Until then: have a fantastic weekend and happy crafting, yours Maike
