Mixing patterns

Hello!
I hope your weekend is just as good as ours!A few months ago we invited my brothers, sisters, BIL and SIL, nephews, nieces, grandnephews and grandnieces over for a family-day.(Or is it called a family reunion?)They were not all able to come but with 22 relatives we had a fabulous day. Lots of talking and laughter, catching up, good food and lovely weather.The memories are priceless!
And I am still enjoying my vacationfor another two weeks:)There is a bit of inspiration coming back.I made this card with pieces of PL cards. I bought a box of PL cards (Beggy Higgins "Live Brightly")and used a few favorite dies and some silver yarn:



I love the bright patterns:



Enjoy your Sunday; thanks for stopping by!Stella



Lift challenge #90

Hello!
This is the first week of my vacation and that means plenty of time for papercrafting.But it seems that my inspiration went abroad and I am here at home :)
So it took me a few days with endless hours  on the internet looking for inspiration.And I am getting back on track heehee.
The card I am sharing today is made for the current Liftchallenge.We're supposed to create a card in a different shape as usual.And add some stamping and no layering.This is the photo inspiration:




My take is white on white and like Cornelie I added one layer.I choose the star shape for a christmas cardAnd of course there is a deer involved:)



I cut two stars and adhered them together with a small strip of cardstock. A little piece of twine was also added if the recipient wants to hang it.Some hemp cord and a little bell for the finishing touch:

It is also the last week for us to have 
Suchias our special Guest Designer; Suchi thank you so much for your fab contributions!
My take is based upon the maps in this moodboard:



 I used an old map and punched out the place where I live.The sentiment was made with my label maker.And again it turned out very clean and very simple:

City Crafter #275

Hello everyone!
It's Tuesday again and that means 
time for a new challenge at theCity Crafter. Today it's my turn to host and this weeks' theme is:
"Around the corner"



(photo credit)

 I am asking you to create a card or project 
and use just one corner.
 And leave the rest of your card/project blank.
For example:
Dress up a corner with a christmastree
for a CAS christmas card.
Or use your stamps to fill the corner.
You can add a sentiment to the same corner 
or let your card speak for itself.


This is the second week that we have
Suchias our Guest Designer; you can find more of her lovely projects on her blog.
My card has lots of white with a bit of blue and bling:)I used one of the Scribbles dies from MFT and filled the background with Distress Ink (Weathered Wood)The sentiment is cut from silver foil.



I couldn't capture the shimmer of the silver splatters but in real it looks great :)



You can find more inspiration from  the other team members on ourblog I hope that you will …

City Crafter #274

Hello and good morning!

It's Tuesday again and that means 
a brand new challenge
 at the City Crafter Challenge blog
Today my dear friend Ros is our host. 
 And she asks us to make card or project 
based upon this collage:

For example: you can choose to use the colors,
 elements or a seashore theme.


Our Guest Designer for the next three weeks is Suchi; you can find more of her lovely projects on her blog.


This is my take on the theme.I made a CAS card with 
a splash of blue and brown:




The star is a die cut from a piece of cork and I added a gingham background. A simple sentiment and a woodgrain sequin as a finishing touch:
