purple chic(k)

Happy friday all those sassy fans out there! It´s Kathrin here and I am having two cards to share with you today. With those problems Blogger had last week and some posts disappearing I wasn´t able to show you my inspiration card last week... So let´s start!

On the first card I used

Boho Chic

from the latest release of set # 7.
(And everytime I type her name I go with chick instead of chic - but wouldn´t that match great too? LOL)

I hardly ever use purple when I craft but somehow I was in a totally purple mood when I made this card and so it is purple all over. Don´t you agree that she looks beautiful in her white and purple clothes?
I love this image because it´s so versatile - you can make her look very elegant by using muted colors but I am sure if you use some bright colors she will also be great on a 70ies card.

I wasn´t sure which saying to use for my card and came across the "truly amazing" stamp when I went through my stash. So I combined this with another stamp that I inked up only the "you are" part.

For the coloring I went with these markers:


And here´s the card I wanted to show you last week:

I was inspired by a few butterflies that fluttered around in our garden and were telling me that summer will be here soon. It was so much fun to watch them - well at least until my cats came realized them too...

So I picked

Butterflies and Pigtails

and made a vintage summer card. I love those brownish pink colors and had some papers in my stash that did not only match my coloring but also had those little blossoms printed on - exactly what I needed for a little extra summer-ish touch.
The saying is by Stampin´Up and I think just this one word is perfect with this image - sometimes you don´t need to make many words to express your feelings.

I used these colors to color the image in:

I am wishing all of you a very sunny and happy weekend!


  1. Adorable cards:-)
    Love the images, your colouring and design:-)
    Have a nice weekend

  2. Such pretty cards. Love the purple layout so may need to 'borrow' that idea and the pigtails are fabulous too - I adore her! Sheila:)X

  3. Both cards are stunning...gorgeous images which are beautifully coloured & great layouts!

  4. Boho Chic is my favourite - it's the colours & the whole classy look & I have to agree about the image being utterly versatile & dress upable/downable. Love the soft colours of the second & the sense of sumemr it brings with a lovely delicate vintagey look.

  5. Both care are absolutely beautiful but I have to say that Butterflies and Pigtails is one of my favorite sassy girls.

  6. love the softness to these cards!! Hugs Juls
