new punch board and Incolors

I played around with the new paperbag punchboard and the super cool new InColors by Stampin‘ Up!
The punchboard is great and so are the new colors – can’t really decide which one my favorite is though – and, does the bag look better with or without the little flower accents? I don’t know 🙁 how do you like the new stamp set? I like it a whole bunch and can’t wait to order some new goodies next week, June 2nd, when you can order from the new annual catalogue 🙂

Crazy Challenge:  Ribbon or Lace

heat embossed, watercolored spring flowers :)

over at CUYL we’d love to see some watercolored projects 🙂
I used the gorgeous flower stamps – I heat embossed it in white so it would be easier for me to color them with watercolors 😉

Bingo – stay closed box

We’re playing Bingo over at Bastel-Traum 🙂 I love those kind of challenges ;D
I chose the bottom line and also used butterflies as my choice 🙂 I simply adore this cute stay closed box (click here for a tutorial) – I thought it might be a difficult and time consuming box but it’s not – fast and easy = perfect 🙂

embossing :))

We’d love to see some embossed projects over at Challenge Up Your Life – wether it’s heat embossed or „dry“? we’d love to see’em all 🙂

I chose the „Something Lacy“ background stamp and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder, then I went over it with a sponge and Blackberry Bliss – I tried to create an ombre look – it didn’t really turn out the way I hoped it would be but it’s not too bad I guess 🙂

Let it snow :)

We had a short winter break over at Creative Friday but today we are back with a new Challenge 🙂 We’d like to see some fabulous snow creations 🙂 surprise us with the winterwonderland of the century or a snowmen parade or whatever you guys can think of when you hear „snow“ 🙂

I pimped a little mason jar with my favorite winter paper Be Merry by MME and kept it rather simple with snowflakes, bling and twine 🙂 I think little jars like that are the perfect gift – put some candy and or bath pralines inside and you’re ready to go 🙂
