A Choco Cookies Bday Card & A card for World Card Making Day

I am late to make a card for my friend Vicki, dear Vicki, happy belated birthday (again) and I hope you like this birthday card I made.....I know too much choco is not good for our shape right :) but I only put three choco cookies here on my card :) and they speak each other about Vicki´s birthday :) (grinz)

I love to join the challenge at 1. CASology (sdh a. p.) this time they have theme CHOCOLATE (hhmm yummyyy): 

If you see Vicki´s Blog (Stamp Smiles) you can see how great she colored with Copic Marker and I must learn much from coloring still maybe 10% from her :) I am a beginner at Copic coloring image.

Challenge for my first card:

2. Seize the Birthday: Anything Goes Birthday (sdh a. p.)

3. Keep it Simple #50: Drei/ Three 

4. Stempelkueche Die Challenge #4: Marker (I colored with my copic marker the cookies)


And because the 4th of October is a World Card Making Day, I made another one card to share :)

I like to make a different card using the set from The Alley Way Stamp named True Colors.

First I stamped the long brush stroke in 4 colors, yellow, green, pink and brown

Then I stamped the brush on the green paper and fussi cut and paper piecing at the top of the white paper that already stamped with the same stamp. I colored the wet brush with embossing pen and gave embossing powder in black and embossed it. (from the picture we cant see much shiny on the embossing wet brush :( )

I joined also the challenge from BE Inspired Challenge #57 (sdh a. p.) with this Photo Inspiration:

I inspired with the colors on the picture at the left side.

As it is already 22:15 O´clock in Germany and I see no sun shine anymore here :), also I used my NEW TOYS, the SOFT LAMP MINI STUDIO I have bought in Ebay (It´s around 45 Euro with Shipping costs). 

I have seen a nice post from Julia at her Blog here and I think oooh woooww I also can do this. But I dont have time to make the lamp...also I bought this set and its already complete with lamp, the mini studio box with 4 different cloth (RED, BLUE, BLACK and WHITE). You can see that out side the box the light is darkness :) 

Also I want to say Happy World Card Making Day for all my lovely crafting friends all around the world and hope you all have a little time to crafting and feel happy meeting the paper, ink, stamp and their friends :)

Challenges for this card are:

Sister Act Challenge # 77: Anything Goes (sdh a. p.)

QKR Stampende Challenge #107: Anything Goes (sdh a. p.)

Thanks for looking and happy friday :)




  1. Happy World Card Making Day right back!! You are busy Monika girl!!! Lots of new goodies and 3 nice sweet cookies to celebrate right?!!!
    Yes! You celebrate in style, YUMMMMY!!!

    FUN shaped card, and love the card panels that are slanted with the lovely aint striping, YAY!!!

    So much FUN!

    Thanks for joining us this week at CASology, in all it's chocolatey goodness!!!

  2. Your cookies look delicious! What a fun birthday card :) Your paint brush strokes are so fun. I love the "wet" look the embossing gives. Thank you so much for your sweet comments on my blog. I can only post everyday because I do it in the middle of the night haha! I can't believe you have two babies! You don't look old enough to have a ten year old ;)

  3. Die Cookies-Karte ist wunderbar, zum Anbeißen. Aber auch die anderen Karten sind dir gut gelungen. Am besten gefällt mit dein neuer Fotografierplatz. Schon lange trage ich mich mit dem Gedanken, eine solche "Kiste" zu bauen, aber ich habe noch nicht die zündende Idee. Vielleicht schaue ich auch mal bei Ebay vorbei und sehe, wo es solch eine "Kiste" gibt. Ich vermute mal, die kann man zusammenklappen - das wäre optimal, weil sie dann nicht noch Platz wegnehmen würde.
    Danke für deine Idee und dir ein sonnenscheinverwöhntes Wochenende,

  4. Hmm... the choco cookies card looks tempting, Monika! Love your take on the TAW Challenge. Happy WCMD to you too!

  5. Such a sweet cookie card! It works so well with the rounded edges for a woman, make a straight one too and you've got a male one ready to go!
    Your paintbrush card is brilliant, so colorful and artistic!
    I really want a lamp too!!! You lucky girl!

  6. Super cute cards Monika. You've been busy! Love those chocolate chip cookies! :) Yum! I have a lamp set, but I don't like to use it... I am still working on finding the best way of taking pictures.

  7. Just lovely cards Monika. Your light box is fabulous and great for taking your photos at nighttime.

  8. Hi Monika, Love the cookie and looks good enough to eat. Great on making it look real.
    The paint brush card is awesome. I really like the color choices and the whole detail of the paint brush and it's words. Very cool card.
    I like the light box you have. I had my hubby make me one and I love it so know you will enjoy yours. It does help with the look of the cards.
    Well sweet have a great evening and beautiful blessed week. Hugs from the states.

  9. You are going to enjoy taking pictures of your cards whenever you are finished making the card instead of waiting for the light to be "just right". So cool to be in charge of when you take your pictures, isn't it? Such a nice set-up that you have. Congrats! You make wonderful cards and have such a fun blog! I love visiting and seeing what you're up to. Love having you as a blogging friend! Hugs to you!!

  10. Happy World Cardmaking Day!! I love your creations. I've been looking around your blog and I also wanted to thank you for the lovely, kind words you left on my blog. You're so sweet!
