Halloween a la carte !

Ich hoffe meine Kreationen finden heute Anklang.
I hope they like my creations today.

Das hier ist aus "Koerperwelten" - falls jemand die Auststellung gesehen hat. Ich war leider nicht da, aber so aehnlich stelle ich es mir vor.
This is a sample from Gunther von Hagens excibition "bodyworlds" - I didn't go when it was in Detroit , but I imagine something like this.
Frischkaesemix mit rohen Schinken belegt und mit Oliven und Mandelstiften dekoriert.
Cream cheese ,shape it like a skull and cover it with thin slices of bacon, olives , almonds

Komm doch naeher....
...come closer..

Das naechste sind Augaepfel. Sehen sie nicht lecker aus? Naja, eigentlich Litschis mit Marmelade gefuellt und eine Traube reingedrueckt.
Eyeballs are made from litschis filled with marmelade, I put small blue crapes inside - or blueberries are fine too.

... nur paar Wuermer...
and some earthwormes..

und dann gibt es noch Mud pie (Schlammkuchen) mit Regenwuermern zum Nachtisch.
Darunter verbirgt sich Schokoladenpudding,Schlagsahne,braune Kekse/Kekskruemel und Gummiwuermer.
mud pie (dessert) - chocolate pudding, whipped cream ,on top cookie crumbs , some worms and tomb stones

Hoffentlich kommen die Freundinnen meiner Tochter auch vorbei.
Happy Halloween!

Quinceanera cards

A friend of mine ask me to design a card for her daughter. She turns 15. A very important day in the life of an mexican girl. Her dress is going to be yellow . I made 5 different cards to choose from .I hope there is one she likes. The "M" stands for Marbella.

Here are my drafts:

If she wants to include a picture ....

...and here is enough room for the invitation.

...and now, let the party begin.

Not quite ready yet, be patient!

The one and only card I made lately was a card using this photo. I taped it on cardstock and sent it to a friend.

Last week I was finally able to get internet and telefon connection . The container have arrived and the boxes are getting less day by day. My stamp room or my future stamp room looks the worst. Each box the mover didn't know where to put - they grinned and said ---> stamp room.
I think they were to lazy to go upstairs and drag the boxes in the attic .
Now , I have to do the job!
The other project we started was our patio. Almost done now. We ran out of bricks.
I hope one day I will be able to enjoy stamping. I miss my princess days at Chris' house.

I'll be back later this summer.

This little box is pretty easy to make.

Material :
three 1/4 sheets of SU whisper white CS.
two 1/4 sheets of SU baja breeze CS and ink
SU Top note die
SAB set Yummy
Baroque motifs
flower brad
How to make it:
score all 4 sides of the white CS 1 inch.

fold all 4 sides up and glue it together.

Score all four sides of your second piece of CS slightly bigger (1 1/16") - this makes the lid.
The rest same as above.

Simplicity Sunday

These cards are very simple.
I used the score pal , the new SU punch heart to heart and
the SU stamp set "a happy heart".

I used my scorpal and the new SU heart punch. I good way to use some DS paper scraps.

Valentine Wednesday

Here are some of this weeks cards I would like to share.

This card was made by Michelle using the SU set "Always". If you don't have this set yet.
It's a must have. One of my favorite stamp sets.

This is the card I made . I used Candy lane DS paper, red riding hood CS, the scallop punch, circle punch, pink pirouette ribbon and the SU set "love you much". I did cut all the little hearts by hand. ( and my new heart to heart punch was sitting right in front of me , duh) So don't make the same mistake - use your punch instead!

This beautiful card made Ronnie for us. She used the SU sets " Frames with a flourish" and
"A happy heart". She used her stamp - a - magic to make sure the frames are stamped straight.

Wednesday - Playday

I belong to a wonderful group of demostrators.
We get together every Wednesday to do some stamping, share our stamp sets and ideas.

Chris made this card. I love how she used the Top Note die.
She die cut her DS paper turned it 90 degrees and die cut it again.
Think outside the box!

Chris also made two cards with a new set called "Game Night".
You'll find this set on page 109 in the new SU Idea Book and Catalog.

Here is Ronnies game night card .

...this one was also designed by Ronnie .
