C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Animals

Good day to you all folks! Finally I'm able to write this blog post. It really took me ages to upload the pictures for this post. Last night and the day before it didn't work.
Today late in the afternoon it finally did. But the first picture still took one hour before it was ready.
Since the beginning of Ramadan over here in Egypt, the internet is really terrible. And internet is already bad in Egypt. And this frustrates me sometimes a lot.
But oke, back to my card which I made for the new Challenge at the C.R.A.F.T. Challenge Blog.

This weeks Challenge is all about Animals!

So you can make any card or project you like, as long as the focus lies on Animals, any kind of Animals.
I used a digi stamp from one of our Sponsors, Pickled Potpourri Designs, and this digi is called "Tail Feathers". It comes with the sweet sentiment. I coloured this funny little chick up with my Copic Markers.
After that I cut it out with the Round Nestabilities.
The papers I used are from a paper pad from Basic Grey, "Picadilly". An paper pad with all bright colours.
The swirl is made with a die from Doohickey, Magnolia. The leaves behind the flowers are a die from CreaLies and a punch of Martha Stewart.
The edge I made with a die from Die-Namics, "Dainty Lace Border". The little butterfly is also made with a die of Die-Namics.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. On top of the flowers I put some Stickels, "Star Dust".
The feathers, ribbon and flat back pearls are coming from my stash.
I do hope you like this card again. And remember, this week there are TWO winners for this Challenge, because there are TWO Sponsors.
First of all: Pickled Potpourri Designs
And the second one: All Dressed Up!

So head over to the C.R.A.F.T. Challenge Blog to enter and also to have a look at al the fabulous examples the other DT Ladies made for this Challenge.
Have a nice day and thanks for visiting my blog. Hope to see you soon again and then without any delay! Lol!

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Christmas

Good day to you all people. I hope every body is doing fine! Over here in Luxor it is very hot. I do experience a lot of problems with the internet. The internet is soooo slow and sometimes not working at all. Uploading stuff takes forever or not working at all, like yesterday night. That frustrates me sometimes. But oké, what can you do, nothing. So keep calm and keep cool! So I took a dive in my swimming pool. Lol.
But back to my card. This is my third GD card for the C.R.A.F.T. Challenge Blog.

And the theme for this week is: Christmas.

Well, pretty easy isn't it. And for this Challenge we have a fabulous sponsor: Paper Nest Dolls Digis!
They have absolutely super cute digis! Go check them out.
For this card I used "Gingerbread Ellie". Isn't she lovely. I coloured here with my Copics. I then cut her out with some rectangle Nestabilities.
The papers I used are from Kaisercraft, super old but I still think they are beautiful. I inked the papers up with Distress Ink, "Walnut Stain".
The sentiment stamps are from Lili of the Valley, the Christmas Tag set.
The big snowflakes at the top are made with a die from Tim Holtz. On top I put some "Aged Teal Embossing Enamel" from Stampendous.
The white snowflake behind the flowers is made with a Doohickey from Magnolia. The leaves behind the flowers are made with a die from Cheery Lynn.
The edge I made with an edge punch from Fiskars, "Apron Lace".
In the left corner I also used a corner die from Memory Box, "Snowflake Corner".
The flowers and Vintage Seam Binding are coming from Wild Orchid Crafts. On the flowers I put some Stickels, "Star Dust".
And for the rest, all the other stuff used on this card is coming from my stash.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Inspired By A Film

Good day to you all. I hope you had a nice week. Over here in Luxor it is super hot with temperatures around the 46/47degrees. So you stay in with the fan on and if you have the air co on to.
Today I'm back with my second GD card for the C.R.A.F.T. Challenge Blog.

The theme this week is: "Inspired By A Film".

And our sponsor is the talented Lacy Sunshine with tons of super sweet Girlie digi stamps!
For this card I used the digi "Rory's Movie Snacks".
This digi reminds me more of the movies I watched. I'm not such a big television fan and go seldom to the cinema. But this stamp reminded me of the movies I've been seen in the cinema. And from the last years that where all the Hobbit movies and Avatar. I loved them! I love all kind of Fantasy movies. And then sit there and watch and have a big bucket of popcorn with it.
Unfortunately over here in Luxor we don't have a cinema and the nearest town with a cinema is Hurghada, which is a 4/5 hour drive away!
But back to my card. The papers I used are from a paper pad from Kaisercraft, "Lavendar Haze". I inked the papers with Distress Ink, "Walnut Stain". Behind the papers I put a little paper doily.
The edge I made with a punch of Martha Stewart, "Doily Lace".
The sentiment stamp is from a set from Kaisercraft.
The flowers are coming from Wild Orchid Crafts and the leaves beneath it are made with dies from Cheery Lynn and Magnolia.
Behind the flowers I also put some film strip ribbon.
The ribbon and the pearls are from my never ending stash.
The inside of the card I made accordingly. Used a die from CreaLies and also some film strip.
I do hope you get a little inspired by this card for the Film Challenge at the C.R.A.F.T. Challenge Blog and that you play along so you will have a chance to win the fabulous prize from Lacy Sunshine!
Thanks everybody for visiting my blog and hope to see you soon again!

Last GD Card for Crafts and Me - You're Lovely

Good day to you all folks. I hope you are all doing fine. Over here in Luxor, Egypt, Ramadan started last Saturday. That is a very important time for Muslim people. But it is also very hard for them at the moment because it is very hot here. In the daytime it is at the moment around 46 degrees! So during the day it is everywhere very quiet. Every body is in the house, sleeping. In the daytime you could shoot a canon in the street and hit nobody and nothing! Lol! But in the evening and night it is very busy on the streets. They all go out, shopping or visiting family or friends. But so far about Egypt again.
Back to my first card for today because today I have two posts for you people.
This is my last card as a GD for Crafts and Me. And I must say, I did it with great pleasure. It was so nice to play with their lovely digi's. So Thanks Teresa from Crafts and Me to let me be a Guest Designer!
For this last card I used a stamp from the very talented artist Morgan Fitzsimons. She makes a wide range of all kind of different digi stamps: Fantasy, Ethnic, Animals, Womans Heads and Flowers.  This digi is called "Ariane". She is not yet in the shop but I'm sure she will come soon.
The papers I used are from a paper pad from K&Company. I inked the papers up with Distress Ink, "Walnut Stain". Behind the papers I made a tag. The corners on the right side of the card I cut with a corner punch.
The round sentiment stamp and the stamp on the tag are coming from Lili of the Valley.
Further more I used an edge punch from Martha Stewart.
The little fence is made with a die cut from Memory Box.
The vine leaves behind the flowers a made with a die from Creative Expressions.
The little butterfly is a die from Die-Namics.
The flowers are coming from Wild Orchid Crafts and the hydrangea from Prima Marketing. In the centre I put a spacer with a split pen. On the flowers I put some Stickels, "Star Dust".
The flat back pearls, rhinestones and ribbon are coming from my stash.
The inside of the card I decorated also. For that I used a nesting die from Nellie Snellen and some flowers.
I do hope you like this card again. Thanks every body for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.

Crafts and Me GD Card - Adore

Good day to you all people. I hope everybody is doing fine. Over here in Luxor temperatures dropped to around 38 degrees. So that's a little better then last week. Also in the night we have a nice cool breeze and then it is lovely to sit on my roof terrace and enjoy the silence of the night. The only thing you hear are the crickets and the frogs.
So far about Egypt again. Back to my new card.
This is my third card as a Guest Designer for Crafts and Me.
This digi is made by the artist Emily Louella. She makes beautiful digi's in greyscale. Never coloured a greyscale digi before. This was my first one and I have to amid, it was so fun to do! This beauty is called "Blossoming". I coloured her mainly in browns because I wanted to give this card a bit of a Vintage look. Only used another colour for the flowers and the background.
The papers I used are from a super old paper pad. I think that was one of the first paper pads I ever bought. It is from Graphic 45, "Baby 2 Bride". The papers from this pad fit so well with a Vintage card. I also used a piece of corrugated cardboard.
I distressed all the papers and inked them up with Distress Ink, "Walnut Stain". And after that I smeared some white Gesso so here and there.
Behind the papers I put a little white doily.
The sentiment stamp is from Lili of the Valley. I cut it out with a little tag die. Do not know any more from which company. After that attached it with some brads to the card.
All the flowers and Vintage Seam Binding are coming from Wild Orchid Crafts. For the bling put some Stickels, "Star Dust" on it.
The leaves behind the flowers are dies from Cheery Lynn and CreaLies.
The big Guipure Lace is coming from The Ribbon Girl.
The metal corner, flat back pearls and rhinestones are coming from my stash.
I do hope you like this card again. And if you like, head over to the Challenge of Crafts and Me. The May Challenge is still open and it is an Anything Goes one. How easy!
Thanks every body for passing by and I do hope to see you soon again! Have a nice Thursday.
