Happy Birthday

This birthday card was made for a friend of ours
who had her birthday last week.
I dared to move outside my comfort zone
and made a bigger card than I usually do.
All the flowers are handmade.

I used:
Creme double card A5;
Design paper: DecoTime;
Creme paper and snippets of different colours;
Embossing folder: Darice (used for the first time);
Flowers: Craft Sensations dies and EK Success punch;
Leaves: Cottage Cutz "Ivy" dies;
Butterfly and Banner: Marianne Design dies;
Stamp: StempelArt;

I want to show my card here:

Valentine's Day

Für meine Enkeltochter in Norwegen habe ich
ein ganz schlichtes Valentine Kärtchen gebastelt.
Weisser Kartenkarton;
Papier: Craft Sensations;
Rosa (pink) Reste-Papier;
Spellbinders Dies und Atelier Terziev Punch;
Rosa und schwarz Filzschreiber;
Cuttlebug Maschine.

Drinnen habe ich einen Gruss geschrieben und ein Schokoladenherz im roten Metallfolie aufgeklebt.

Die Karte ist in Norwegen gut angekommen,
und mein Enkelkind hat sich gefreut.

Cuttlebug Mania Colour Challenge

It is Tuesday, and that means another Cuttlebug Mania Challenge.
I made a CAS Birthday card as my DT card.
This is a colour challenge, and we want you to use
a combo of some or all of these colours:
Turquoise, purple, grey and white.

For my card I used:
White double card A6;
White card stock;
Purple, turquoise and grey papers;
Flower and leaves dies: Craft Sensations;
Swirl die: Joy!Craft;
Flower punch: EK Success;
Stamp: Big Time, Zürich;
Purple pen and distress ink for the edges.

Seize the Birthday (anything)

On A Rainy Day (Birthday ?)

I think I may use this card for a birthday,
or perhaps only as a smile on a rainy day.
To have the opportunity to choose,
I did not stamp a special greeting on it.
This was the first time I tried to colour the image with Tombow.
I need much more practice with them
before I think it is good enough.
But to learn something new, you have to start.
And at least I did.

For my card I used:
Creme double card A6;
White card stock;
Blue paper;
Snippets, different colours;
Stamp: S.w.a.l.k.;
Colours: Tombow;
Punch: EK Success;
Glitter glue;
Pens, different colours.

On the blog "The Male Room" there is this challenge:

on many greeting cards.

in German.
