Art gave her Wings

When I made my Frida Kahlo ATCs (see my previous blog post), I didn´t know that Frida would be the theme for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge. Though I still had all my Frida related rubber stamps on my desk, I decided to make a digital card. Credits go to Itkupilli, Xquizart, Crafty Button Designs, KrystyScrap, Rucola, and Holliewood Studio.

Frida Kahlo ATCs

One of the best things about Christmas is that there´s always enough time to do a bit of stamping and collage. This time, I´ve had an upcoming Frida Kahlo ATC swap on my to do list, and the first batch shows the six ATCs I´ve chosen for it. But sometimes when I´ve been diving deep into a theme, I just can´t stop, so I´ve made four more just for fun and for my trading album ...

Winter Fest

Are you looking forward to the holidays? If you´re like me, you can´t wait to have a few quiet days possibly with your family, but especially if you´re very young, you might be curious about the gifts you´ll receive ...
My digital collage in 4 x 6 postcard format was made with the new Songbirdy kit called "Winter Fest".

Jingle Bells

"Jingle Bells" is not my favourite Christmas song, but it´s this week´s theme for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge. For my digital collage, elements from Rebecca McMeen, Itkupilli, Erica Zwart and Shadowhouse came together.

Holiday Card Ideas

Have you already made all your holiday cards, or do you need some fresh ideas especially for cards that are easy to make?
If you know me for a while, you already know that I´m a big fan of brads, and holiday cards are my favourite items to use them - for my cards here I´ve combined antlers, hats and holly brads with Tim Holtz´ photobooth people, but you can also use people from magazines or your own family photos of course ...
The next two cards don´t use brads but cards pre-printed with dots and stripes - just add your favourite stamps, and maybe a bit of colouring.

Discombobulated

I must confess that I had to look up the title of Beth Todd´s new Songbirdy kit "Discombobulated" - but I loved it at first sight! So many wonderful black and white elements with just a few hints of yellow and red are very inspiring, so these two collages called "Higher" and "Naked" came together very easily.

Charlie Chaplin

You´ll hardly find anyone who doesn´t know Charlie Chaplin´s name, and most of us have been watching his films and have laughed about them. But what I really adore about him and his work is that he made us laugh about things that aren´t funny at all, and I´ve always been interested in his indirect political statements and their consequences for his life - if you haven´t heard about these, I recommend an internet research.
For my card for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Charlie Chaplin" I´ve used a portrait from Carmen´s Veranda and a stamp with a scene from "Modern Times" (Stempelbar), and in my opinion the words from Dina Wakley fit perfectly.

And as Lost Coast Designs and Carmen´s Veranda have a new challenge theme called "For the Men" right now, this card is my entry for it - please check it out here:
