Just wanted to say "Hi"

I made an other card for Cute Card Thursdays Challenge. I was not sure which stamp Katharina is going to use for her card - and i thought it might be boring if two people had submitted the same image for the challenge. Anyhow... i was so happy that i could use Juliette :-) today. she just makes me smile.

The colors simply came together because i had from the "Loads of Love" card still that pack of SU DP sitting there. I thought the blue swirls work for the sky and appricot appearal was in this weeks color challenge on SCS. I think now i should clean up my stuff :-)
Stamps: Juliette and Penny Black Sentiment
Ink: Going Grey, Basic Grey, Pretty in Pink, Close Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Bashful Blue, Apricot Apperal, Marigold Morning and some yellow Twinkeling H2O color for some details, Pebbles Shimmery Chalks
CS/DP: SU Prints Pack (current Level 1 Hostess Benefit) Going Grey, White, Apricot, Bashful Blue
Embellishments/Tools: Piering Tool, Making Memories Brads, SU Ticket corner punch, Apricot grosgrain ribbon

To make the card i used this weeks Poetric Artistry's sketch:
What i do to get my stamping time.... :-) I let my oldest make a choo-choo with my re-inker bottles (always beeing scared he opens them and i will have the color on the table) and letting the little one play Domino's with my inkpads :-) aahhh... what are your tricks?

Fantastic card Claudia, I love juliette too, she is so cute!! I don't really have any tricks other than my daughter has her own little craft area to make things at the same time I am making something, so that keeps her occupied and I usually try and get something done while my son is having a nap or they are both in bed at night:-)Kelly

Oh, Claudia, this is sooo cute!! Wonderful colors! Your kids are so cute too! I let my boys, 6 and 3, make cards along with me! They sit on the floor with folded sheets of paper and some ink pads and stamps (old ones or dollar store ones) and I let them have at it! They love making cards too.

Great Card and what a sweet stamp! I love it.Today Greetings from Belgium

Ineke said...

: ) cute stamping tricks, my girls are a bit older, but I give them some Magnolia prints that went a bit wrong and they love to color them.
Love your cards !

Ineke said...

Cute card ! My stamping trick, i give my daughters some magnolia prints that didn't work out for me and they love to color them : )

Katharina said...

Oh Claudia, die Karte ist dir traumhaft gelungen! Total lieb von dir, dass du auf mich Rücksicht genommen hast, aber ich weiss ja, dass du eine Süße bist. Ich muss gestehen, dass ich gar nicht an den Hippo für CCT gedacht habe...hihi
Sowas passiert anscheinend, wenn man zu viele Stempel hat ;)
Deine Coloration ist ein Wahnsinn. Jetzt werde ich mich wahrscheinlich nicht mehr an den Hippo trauen, weil ich einem Vergleich mit dir nicht standhalten könnte...hihi
Gibt es das, dass deine 2 Jungs immer Süßer werden?
Wünsch dir einen schönen Tag!

Oh my friend your card is adorable !!! But those boys just stole my heart !!!!!!!! They are so CUTE !!! Oh my dear when they get a little bit older you are going to have girls beating down your door !!! They are so handsome.

Heidi said...

What a wonderful card you have made. I just love the stamp and also the colors. And your children - they are so sweet. love the picture of them. My children who is 9 and 3 years old also want to make cards. But they like to color more then the stamping. But when they do want to stamp I have a plastic cover over the table so they dont get anything there.

Hug from Heidi

Deb said...

Fabulous card Claudia, I love this stamp and how perfect for this week's challenge.

How cute your boys are! My daughter (7) gets her own craft box out and makes a card similar to mine, I usually have to stamp her out a few more images. Luckily, the ages they are they can amuse themselves a lot of the time now!

Kathy said...

Deine Juliette ist sowas von wunder-wunderschön... Ich bin verliebt !!!! Aber nicht nur in Deine Karte, die Beiden sind ja wirklich goldig *schwärm*...

Great card!! Love that hippo! My sons both have an form off autism, so there is no way I can let them crafting when they don't feel like it. But to give them some extra computertime, works really well ;-)
