Das doppelte Lottchen #178

Hello everyone,

Here we are 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 Anni made a wish, and it is:

My cute stamps - Eek, a monster!

&

Coloring vellum with inkpads

I {puffy heart} LOVE colored vellum bit haven't used it in a bit, so this task was perfect for me. I am pretty sick at the moment, but I still felt so inspired - thank you, Anni <3 

I took out some Simon Says Stamp inks (Hot Mama, Green Leaf, Audrey Blue) als colored my vellum after I cut it in strips. I adhered the strips randomly and added the colored, fussycur monster. (Colored with Copics ans Polychromos Pencils).

The sentiment is from Create A Smile's stamp set "Monstermäßig".



Thanks for stopping by, now hop over to Anni's blog so see what she came up with!

Have a great day!
Christine

Das doppelte Lottchen #177 & new CAS release!

Hello everyone,

Here we are with a new Lottie and Lisa - yay! Still January and my second blog post already - wow... (hehe, you guess, I am a busy bee...)

For those new on my blog:

Paper Piecing

I guess we all experience those moments when we fall in love again with a technique that we used to love years ago. Paper Piecing is something I re-discovered for me, lately. I just love the look - patterns everywhere.
I decided to use some of the newest Create A Smile products - the new release came out last friday. You can check all the new products out and see some inspirational projects here. Let's get to my Lottie and Lisa card first :)

With the dies it was crystal clear that the theme would be ocean, so I created a background with my oxide inks (Peacock feathers, salty ocean, wilted violet). I paper pieced the vampire squid from Glowing Seaside / Strahlende Küste, die cut the "du" with the new "doppeltes du" cool cuts and added a small handwritten sentiment. The sentiment says "you are unique".




I also have some more cards to share with you, using the newly released products:

This coffee-themes card uses an older stamp set (just like coffee / so wie Kaffee) and an older die set (Stacked pierced banners) with two brand new products: The "Huge polka Dots" stencil and the "you twice" cool cuts.




Here's a super clean and simple card, using the unfrogettable / sei kein Frosch stamp set, the new postage edge circles cool cuts, the doppeltes hallo cool cuts and the Nur mal hallo sagen stamp set:



The last card is very clean and simple also, using the doppeltes du dies, the postage edge circle dies and the new Focal Dots stencil.


 I hope you enjoyed this little colorful gallery :)

Please hop over to see what Anni created for our Lottie and Lisa #177!

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful sunday!

Das doppelte Lottchen {Lottie and Lisa} #176

Hello everyone,

it's 2018 and Lottie and Lisa is BACK! Anni and I decided we want to do it on a more regular base again and hope to manage a bi-weekly edition :)

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 Anni made a wish, and it is:


&

watercolor + heat embossing

This challenge was a little strange. I loved EVERYTHING about it, but I really struggled to make a a card that I liked. I started with multiple ideas, multiple background, multiple watercoloring-tecniques.
In the end I managed to crate two brand new cards for this theme:





 Which one do you like better (and why?) Please let me know in the comments below!


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

Thanks for visiting!

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:

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.

For those new on my blog:

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!

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.

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).
