DT Fashionable Stamping Challenge Flowers

Hello erveryone and welcome,
today a new idea for our Stamping Challenge Flowers- Romantic frame Memories


neben wunderschönen Stempeln, kamen dieses Mal auch wieder einige Stanzschablonen zum Einsatz
die wunderschön gezeichneten Magnolien stammen von einer alten Postkarte
die Magnolie gehört natürlich in die Frühlingszeit, aber ich liebe diese elegante Blütenform, nicht zuletzt sicher deshalb, weil mein Kinderwagen immer unter einem Magnolienbaum stand :-)

Thanks for stoppy by today and having a peek at my blog!  

I am always inspired by beautiful scrapbooking layouts especially from sea and decided that I ought to be capturing more memories from vacation and  to make more LO from sea and to work with nature elements and spray colors.

Hi scrappy fan's ,
today a new Layout for the theme black yellow white with a Summer Mood board by
Scrap around the world June-2014-

 I was inspired by the colours and the flowers.

Die Foto's von den kleinen, stolzen Sonnenblumen entstanden auf einem Blütenfest vor einigen Jahren in Madeira. Die Kinder tanzten fröhlich bei Sonnenschein über die Straßen und waren mit unheimlich viel Spaß und Freude bei der Sache.
Eine Fülle an Blüten in einem großen Blumenkorso mitten durch die Hauptstadt, eine sehr schöne Erinnerung für mich, die natürlich auch auf einem Scrapbook LO verarbeitet werden mußte.

Thanks for stoppy by today and having a peek at my blog! 

                                                                         Hugs, Kerstin

Carpe Diem

Hi friends,

a new tag in an other color combination Red and Wings was the topic and of course with a little bit steampunk touch ;-)
da ich auch immer sehr gern Geschichten mit meinen kreativen Ideen erzähle, was heute die Idee zum Thema
I also always loved stories to tell  with my creative ideas, today was  the idea on the topic

Träume verleihen Flügel
Dreams give wings

Supply list: Embossing folder Tim Holtz Sizzix Gears + Clocks
Ranger Distress inks fired bricks, walnut stain
Prima clear stamps
cutting dies 

special effect - the carpe diem stamp as race banner
the oldtimer was stamped on foil

ich habe immer viel Spaß am ausprobieren und arbeite auch immer gern mit der großen Palette an Distress Farben, egal welche Kombination man nutzt, es entsteht immer dieser wunderbare Vintageeffekt.
Zusammen mit den Prägefoldern lassen sich interessante Hintergründe schaffen.

I have a lot of fun on and always enjoy working with the great range of Distress colors, no matter what combination you are using, it always results in a wonderful vintage effect. Together with the embossing folders can create interesting backgrounds.

Thank you so much for your visit, 
and for all the amazing words of encouragement and kind comments
 you have all been leaving me, 
I appreciate them so very much!

                                    Happy creating, see you again soon!

1. DT Our Creative Corner Flaming June

Hi friends,

I'm very proud and happy to be a part of this very creative DT. I have been creating for many years now, always in search for new techniques and yet unexplored territory in craftland.


The topic is rich orange tones as main colour - for me a feeling the need to create anything with  fire...
I originally had this long running idea of mixing Acryl Painting and Steampunk, because that style is my new passion. For the background I used many nature stencils (sun rays, branches, spiderweb), crackle paint and distress paints for an old grungy look.

Have a great weekend and thank you for taking the time to stop in.

Happy crafting
