Stitching True or False at Deep Ocean Challenge

Hi everyone, welcome to our new challenge at Deep Ocean Challenges. This fortnight we want to see


Just three days ago I got my preordered Maggies and I HAD to use two of them immediately for the card I created for our challenge. I so love those new stamps, and I love the combo of those two images. I made true stitching on my card.

The coloration is made with Distress Inks.

A first close up... here you can see the charm of a sewing machine...

And another close up of the other charm of a scissor...

With this card I want to join following challenges:

Midweek Magnolias - Frame it
Marvelous Magnolia - Anything Goes
Time for Magnolia - Butterflies
Stamp and Create with Magnolia - Spring Colors
Simply Magnolia - Gorgeous Blooms

Wish you a happy day!
Hugs, Karina

Aurora Wings Challenge - Monochromatic

Hello everyone, hope you're fine and spent some great Easter days. Mine was great too; spent some time with my family, some time for crafting, some relaxing... just as I love it. Unfortunately they are over soon and the daily routing begins again tomorrow. 

Well, today I  have some great news to share. Some may already have noticed from the badge in the sidebar of my blog. Now I want to announce it officially too; the fabulous artist Mitzi Sato-Wiuff herself asked me to be part of her design team... woohoo!!! I needed no second to think and said YES, YES, YES!!! I so love her art and her digital images are such a pleasure to work with. Thank you so much, Mitzi!!

Every month we have a new challenge for you at the Aurora Wings Challenges. Today we start with the theme MONOCHROMATIC... love it!! And below I show you my inspiration... For my card I used 'Big Eye Holiday Elf'. It's a Christmas image, but I created her more winterlike.

The coloration is made with Copics. I so loved to color her. And I added some sparkling here and there.

Now we look so very much forward to see you joining us. You don't have to use an Aurora Wings image to join our challenge. But of course we would love when you do :-).

With this card I want to join following challenges;
Wild Orchid Challenge - 3 different flowers
Everybody Art Challenge - Anything Goes
Inky Chicks - Shabby Chic

Have a happy day now!
Hugs, Karina

For once I made I creation without coloring. I think not all of you love to color and so I wanted to show you how to make a lovely project, a great little gift, with one of the sweet stamps from Whiff of Joy made in not much time and without coloring...

I used this sweet little owl, stamped it with brown ink and only paper pieced the heart with some red cardstock. The lovely doily is a new Die-Light available very soon.

Another new Die-Light are the cutlery. Love them!! The have a little die cutted heart at the holders and so great to add them into a ribbon or twine as I did how you can see on my photo below... The sentiment I used here is from the 'Kalorienreich' set.

Your next stop is COLLEEN's blog.

Whiff of Joy Preview

Hello and good morning everyone! Welcome to another preview of gorgeous goodies soon available at Whiff of Joy

Today I show you another card I made. This time with 'Close Knit Friendship'. What a funny image! Love it!

I colored it with Copics and stamped some 'French Vintage Postmark Stamps' around.

Both sentiments I used on my card are from a new sentiment collection with German text. I also used some Die-Light for my card; the 'Notebook Border', the flower is made with the 'Nested Flowers II' and I also used one of the new 'Nested Tags'. I also embellished my card with some snowwhite Half-Pearls.

Thank you so much for looking! Hope you enjoy the projects the desing team made with the new products. Don't miss our blog hop we have on the 20th April 2014 to have the chance to win one stamp and one Die-Light. From this date the new products are available in the shop.
