Gute Morgen meine Lieben .. nachdem es heut wieder so heiß ist, dachten wir uns bei CUYL, dass wir diesmal mit Wasser spielen könnten um uns ein wenig abzukühlen 🙂 Daher laden wir euch alle ein bei unserer aktuellen Wasserfarbenchallenge mitzumachen 🙂 Solltet ihr Inspirationen brauchen, dann schaut einfach auf den Blogs der Designteammitglieder vorbei 🙂 Ich hab mich diesmal von KWerner inspirieren lassen – ich fand die Karte die sie gebastelt hat einfach total toll 🙂

Pets @ MMM

Good morning y’all  Make My Monday is back with a new challenge for you – this week we’d love to see your „PET“ creations 🙂   that’s right .. scrap a photo from your lovelies or unpack your stamps or designer paper featuring cute dogies, cats, or whatever you like 🙂
Also, check out the design teams creations – they are awesome!
I used a rather old stamp by Paper Smooches – I’ve had that one FOREVER but still love those cute and chubby animals:)  .. I also tried something new – for me, a watercolor background .. didn’t quite turn out as great as I hoped but I’ll keep trying J Happy Monday 


.. clean and simple, white embossing, pink ..  For our new Make My Monday challenge I created this card using the beautiful Stampin’ Up! flower stamp “Birthday Blooms” – this beauty is simply perfect for coloring, right? I used some white embossing powder to heat emboss it in watercolor paper and then I started coloring – it’s not something I do on a daily basis so I’m not an expert but I do love how it turned out 🙂 A clean and simple card in one of my favorite colors 
Hope y’ll like it and hop over to our challenge and play along 🙂 follow me on Instagram

watercolor ornament

On page 15 of the current Holiday Catalog is a wonderful card. When I first opened the page I was stunned by the watercolor effect, the colors, the layout.  But .. that was a couple of months ago .. and only a couple of days ago I found the time and courage to try this very card, and I must say, I love mine as well 🙂 I used some ink, a spritzy tool, water, and gave it a try .. I tried for about an hour LOL and all the ornaments looked different, that’s what I love – unique cards! I also stamped some tiny stars with my Versamark ink pad – you can hardly see them – but I like it that way 🙂
