Das doppelte Lottchen {Lottie and Lisa} #175

Hello everyone,

It's been ages once again.
If you ever wondered what I am doing...
Well, first of all Create A Smile really takes up a lot of time. Designing stamps, sending our orders, preparing releases, dicsounts,... 
I still have a "daytime-job" at a youth center. I love my job, but it can be exhausting.

We also moved into my new happy place which I love so much. And Create A Smile has a huge office now - I simply love that!

Anyway.... today Anni and I are finally back with a new Lottie and Lisa - YAY!

For those new on my blog:
Lottie and Lisa means Anni and I usually pick a stamp or stamp set or die that we both have (we nearly have the same taste!) and create a card with this product and another task.
For today I made a wish, and it is:

The Alley Way Stamps - Monster Madness 

&

Enamel stickers.

I made this card AGES ago but Anni and I never found the time to both post - i really hope we can start posting more regularly again, because I miss our challenge a lot!

Here's the card. I used some crackling paste and a stencil for the background and think this bright card is a lot of fun:


Here's a close-up, so you can see the crackling paint a little better:





Now hop over to Anni's blog to find her creation :) She'll knock your socks off ;)

Thanks for viisting!

Today I made a wish, and it is:

Memory Box - Landscape Die

&

dies only / no stamps

There's not much to say about this - I created a set (card and tag) for this week and I think they turned out simple but nice:

Das doppelte Lottchen #172

Hello everyone,

Can you believe it's been more than a month?
Wel, I was struggling with some health issues and Create A Smile took up the rest of my time, so thanks for your patience!
Anni and I are finally back with pour new Lottie and Lisa.

Today I made a wish, and it is:

Paper Smooches - Little Fella

&

Acetate


EDIT:
Whooops, I just noticed that I obviously picked the wrong date - Anni followed another challenge.theme. Sorry for messingt his up!


Acetate ususally screams for shaker cards, but I decided to NOT make one because I found it was too obvious. However, I used the acetate for a, interactive element.
"Treffen?" means something like "Gather together?" so you can pull that little creature to meet his friends :)
I thought that was cute :)

Das doppelte Lottchen #170

Hello everyone,

I guess you notived that it was quiet for a while over here. Well, Anni and I decided to take a summer break, but we are back and I have tons of cards to share!

Mama Elephant - Up and Away

&

One Layer Card


I had already pulled out my heavy weight cardstock for one layer cards to do some copic coloring, but then decided to go for a kraft cardbase and white embossing with brown. I also added some colored highlights. I colored the imaged with Polychromos, but I don't like the outcome at all. I just couldn't come up with enough patience for a light hand and feel pretty frustrated, BUT I like the over all card design (at least).

I picked my old pompom edging (is that the word?) as a textile element for my card and kept the ret super simple:
