Just for you

This card is inspired by Debby Hughes. I am a fan since I first saw her work and fell in love with her style of cardmaking. You can find her blog here:
And here is the card I made after her example cards, with yellow and grey.

The stamps I used are by Hero Arts, and the paper I used is by Studio Callico.

Happy birthday

Last weeks I am busy making birthday cards. I use birthday cards more often than other cards, so I thought, why searching for suitable sentiments? Lets make birthday cards! This card was for my brother, who lives in the area shown in the little windows, thats why! The card should be arrived by now. So, I can show it here.

I used my Cricut machine and "Life is a beach" cartridge. A SSS "happy" die and sentiment. And an old map in a calender.
Thanks for visiting!

Sending Smiles

Sending Smiles on Sunday! This is a card I made for Virginia's Vieuw Challenge Blog. This months challenge was to make a card with embossing. I love to heat emboss on my cards but I challenged myself to use dry embossing this time. I am not very excited about dry embossing and embossing folders and have only a few items of it. So, it was a real challenge. But now I am finished I can say it was fun and the result is OK.

The sentiment is Hero Arts and it is heat embossed with WOW embossing powder. The background is an embossing folder by Cuttlebug/Kars : Daisy Pattern. The butterflies are made with "Joy" Cutting and Embossing. And so are the flowers. The Leafy Flourish is MFT.
Pattern Paper by Studio Callico and MMY.
Hope you enjoyed your visit!

Today I want to share two cards I made for CAS-ology challenge blog.
The challenge was to make a card with a basket.
For the first card I cut a basket with my Cricut machine. A basket filled with flowers.

The paper I used for this has a basket kind of texture. Wich is perfect for this project. And aren't the flowers fun for spring?!

The second card is also cut with my Cricut machine. And I used the same paper, but this time I cut a hat, isn't that fun. I "hang" it upside down and filled it with flowers!

I think it would be a good idea to do this summer in my garden!

Stamps are by Hero Arts.

Thank you for visiting! Hope you enjoyed your visit!

Our local church is organizing a day specially for women. Tomorrow you can join us. In the Ichtus Church in Lekkerkerk. There will be a wellknown dutch author: Joke Verweerd. She speaks about: "Onderweg op je gevoel". And in the afternoon, you can choose from a range of workshops, such as making flower arrangements, color- and style advice, hairstyling, working with felt, biblestudy, and I will give a workshop with stamps. Now, it has to be very simple, AND it must be done within an hour. It was a challenge to come up with something fun and easy. And finally decided : this it must be.

I made the lighter variation as an example for tomorrow. And the one here beneath was my first attempt.

The background is a Hero Arts background stamp: Friends definition. The poppy stamp image is "Creafine", and so is the sentiment. ( www.creafine.nl) the sentiment says: "A greeting with flowers and a smile, on this special day".
Colored it with Distress Inks.
Made more cards with it. And will post them in the next week.
Hope everyine likes it!

Faux Ceramic Tile

This is my seventh and last card I made as "homework" for the Online Card Classes 4. I learned so much by following the lessons on video. There were great tips and tricks to get more out of your stamps and dies.
This card is made after an example of Julie Ebersole. She showed a heat embossing technique to get the look of a ceramic tile.

As you can see there's a shine on this frame, wich is the embossing. The flower is a die by Memory Box. And the sentiment is dutch for "much love". This was so fun to make. I can say that I will use this technique again!
My little snow owl is peeking from the corner :)

Your visit is much appreciated!
