SDC 292 - a bookmark for Stampotique

Back again!
Coming home from New Zealand was quit tough -  summer /winter - jetlag - and of course - holiday/work. But we sure had a wonderful time in that beautiful country! Close to nature and this feeling of being very small in a big and powerful world. Loved every minute!

And here we are - back home.
I jumped into Stampotiques latest challenge, were the theme this fortnight is bookmarks.

This time I used my latest found on the Stampotique site. His name is Mervyn. I just couldn`t resist him :-) . AND , of course the little heart from my dear tree topper together with the beautiful french journal page!

Hope you like it!

SDC 286 Nature

The latest challenge at Stampotique is all about nature.

I made this picture thinking about the beautiful leaves falling this time of the year. I also thought about friendship and how important it is to spend qualitity time together. The days get shorter, colder and darker and I love this cosy time with my friends when we all have to get closer to keep warm...

I used my beloved Stampotique stamps;

1. Magda`s reindeer
2. Magda`s Mr Owl
3. Penney-Torrente`s Dog Cube
4. Penney-Torrente`s Two Sticks

... and a clear stamp from WOW, called Flights of fancy .

Happy autumn to you all!

SDC 283 anything but a card

Yesterday Luxemburg celebrated fathers day.
For me, that meant creating something cute and useful with the children at work.
We ended up making parking disks in the shape of a car.

At home i made my own parking disk, using my beloved Stampotique stamps;

1. Heads
2. Clover
3.  French journal page

I made it like a tag - I cut out the P , the picture wheel and the arrow with my cuttlebug ( borrowing DIE`s from dear Katherine ).

The eyes in the heads were colored and later filled with Glossy Accents to get that staring effect.

So, this is my entry to the latest challenge at Stampotique Designers Challenge 283, where the theme is "anything but a card".

SDC281 - background love

Last week Stampotique Designers Challenge asked for backgrounds and here is my take on the theme.

 My favorite background stamp right now is the "French journal page" by France Papillon. I just love the clean lines.
I also added some washi tape to underline poor  Twinkie `s struggle as Daniels  tree hopper goes crazy in the back..

Not a lot of colors this time , just the way I like it right now...
