Peek a boo

Today I like to share a "Peek a boo" card. Saw them at Jennifer McGuire's blog but it seemed to difficult for me.You can see her Peek a boo cards here: https://www.jennifermcguireink.com/2018/08/peek-a-boo-cards-special-blog-hop-giveaways.html 
 But encouraged by a friend I gave it a try. This is my Peek a boo card.
Used a Dutch Doo-ba-doo stencil for the leaves. The fun animal stamps are Hero Arts.

I must admit that this final result is the third attempt, but now I am sattisfied. It was fun to do.
Thanks for visiting!

Birthday Fishes

Last week I made this summer related card. I combined stamps from Hero Arts with stamps from Simon Says Stamp.

 The fishes on the left are SSS. And the fishes on the right are Hero Arts and so is the sentiment and the background stamp. The background stamp was originally a Christmas stamp, but in my opinion it can be seen as waves too.  Fishes are colored with Copic Markers and covered with Glossy Accents. The background is colored with Distress Inks.
Thank you for visiting!

Sending Smiles

Here is a card I made recently. For this card I used flowers from a WPlus9 stampset: "Watercolored Anemones".
The butterfly is a stamp by "Stempelmakerij de Voet".

The sentiment is Hero Arts. The foiled stripes and the foiled dots on the butterfly are added with my Minc Machine.

Oceans of Joy

Oceans of Joy is what I feel when stamping and coloring the fishes and under the sea animals which are on this card!
First I stamped the Hero Arts "Magical Background" and heat embossed it with WoW white embossing powder. Colored it with Pistachio DistressInk. The fishes are from Simon Says Stamp "Under the sea animals" and Hero Arts "Oceans of Joy" stampsets. After coloring the fishes and animals with Copic Markers I used a "Wink of Stella" shimmerpen to give them a little glimmer and covered them with Glossy Accents. I have seen that at Yana Smakula's blog and liked it so much! 

Here you can see the glossy layer a little bit at the crab.
Thank you for visiting!

At the moment I am experimenting with a Pretty Pink Posh stampset with the name: "Flourishing Fuchsias".
This is stamped on watercolor paper. And colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. The sentiment is by Simon Says Stamp. Added some washitape at the  bottom, and some splatters and sequins.
Thank you for visiting!

Frame it

Frame it is the title of this weeks Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp. De designers used Memory Box products. You can read about it here:
And here is my card, and I also used Memory Box products.

I used die cuts to cut out the Bramble Circle, the Butterfly and the Chloe stems from watercolor paper. Thereafter I colored it all with Distress Inks.

The background is made with leaves from a Hero Arts stampset. And the sentiment is also Hero Arts.

The stems are tied together with gold thread.

To add some interest I added gold foil on the Chloe stems, using a decofoil marker and my Mini Minc machine.

I am going to insert it in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
Thank you for coming here again! So much appreciated!

Night and day flowers

Love the peaceful feel of sunday afternoon. Time for crafting! Today I finished some projects I started earlier. This card is one of them.
The "Night and Day flowers" is a stampset by Hero Arts. Stamped and heat embossed in gold and colored with Distress Inks. There is no sentiment on this card. Sometimes I prefer a card without a sentiment. This card goes to someone who just came home from hospital.
