Just Us Girls Challenge No. 8

This is my this week's entry for the Just Us Girls Challenge No. 8. I needed a nice wrapping tea lights with a delicious vanilla fragrance. As the lights do already have a gingerbread man on top I repeated this in the complete design of the card.

The blue is definitely not the right color as pre-set in the challenge but this type of blue as cardstock is very difficult to get in Germany. The only blue I can think of is from SU - and unfortunately I run out of it.

So this is my result.

I embossed parts of the card with the polka dots folder of the cuttlebug. The image is from Pink Cat Studio. The gingerbread stamps are from a discount supermarket. But they do not look "cheap" at all!

Thanks for looking!

Christmas Leparello


I created this card last year - but when I saw the challgene I was just of the opinion - yes that's it!

I have seen this type of card in a maganzine and created my own Christmas Leparello using Itty Bitty Christmas Digi Stamps from Pink Cat Studio.

This is the front page of the card:

The internal view of the card:

I used a lot of glitter, rhinestones, rhinestone stars, snwoflakes, liquide pearls, etc. to decorate the christmas trees.

Booklets for post-its!

Some time ago I saw this type of booklets somewhere in the internet and was thrilled about the idea to have on in the handbag as I am a person who never has a piece of paper at hand when needed.

So I made two. One for my mum and one for me in the matching colors of my favourite handbag.

Originally the designer paper is only black and white. So I could adjust it to the colors I wanted. I also used a lot of glitter to receive an elegant look.

Birthday card set

This week is my mom's birthday. I wanted to make hers some personal gifts as top ups. So I created a set with birthday cards which she can send to friends.

I used the colors brown, pink and white. The stamps are "Simply Said" from SU. I made the designer paper myself stamping pale pink and brown flowers on white cardstock. To give the whole thing an elegant look I used a lot of glitter.

I can't wait to see what she is thinking about.

Just Us Girls Week 7

Today it is time for some posts. I have been creative the last couple of days.

This week's taks for the Just Us Girls Challenge was to use the Cuttlebug or similar. I created some gift tags using my Cuttlebug with nestabilities and digi stamps from Pink Cat Studio.

Here they are:

Mojo Monday 112

Today I created another card using this week's Mojo Monday sketch. The part with the ribbon inspired me to create an envelope where I hid the setiments - happy birthday.

The stamps I used are all from SU - mostly from the "Simply Said" and "Happy hearts" set. As the designer paper was glittery I used stickles to continue with the glitter.

This is the card with the setiment hidden.

And now the message pulled out!

Thanks for looking!

Just Us Girls No. 6 - Part 3

And last but not least - me entry for the challenge. I was so much inspired by the color scheme of my boys so adopted it.

The backround of the card is embossed. For this reason I created my own embossing plate for my cuttlebug using cardstock and snwoflake punches. You can hardly see it on the photo but the snowflakes are colored with chalk and aditional smaller snowflakes are sticked on top using dimensionals.

The image is "Christmasmartini" from Stamping Bella. The paper is a free download print-out from the UK "Papercrafts inspiration" Magazine.

Thanks for stopping by!

Just Us Girls Challenge No. 6 - Part 1

Today I started a big experiment. My twin boy (9 years old) are very fond of my "Bellas" how they call my stamping passion. As they needed a reward I promised that they could use all my stamping stuff to create a card.
To give them guideline I used the Just Us Girls Challenge as a template.

This is the result of Constantin:

I am so proud of the respectable result that I promised to publish the cards on my blog in the internet and to link them to the Just Us Girls Challenge. Each with a own comment section!

So if you leave a comment for them they would certainly be over the moon!
