Acetate and Vellum

Two days ago I got my order from Simon Says Stamp. There was that fun die that I immediately had to try!


For the first card I used vellum on wich I stamped birthday candles, little stamps from several stamp sets by Hero Arts. I stamped them using Versamark and white embossingpowder. Then colored it at the backside with Copic markers. Glued it behind the die. Very fun and easy!


For the second card I used the same die but this time I made it into a shaker card. A little piece of acetate, a beautiful striped piece of paper behind it. And some fun sequins and a little bow. Thats all! The paper comes from a little paper pad by Dear Lizzy : "Fine and Dandy" , so lovely! So, I name this a Dear Lizzy card. Are you already following her on Instagram? Great and fun photo's! I can think off many more ways to use this birthday die by SSS! I think I will use it a lot.

Vellum and Acetate

Today I like to share a couple of cards I made for the Online Card Classes:" Clear and Sheer".
For both cards I used the same embossing folder by Provo Craft for Cuttlebug with little flowers. For the first card I used Vellum.


I attached it on a blue card and added stamped flowers on a circle. The stamped flowers, the sentiment and the little butterfly are by Hero Arts.



The second card is made with acetate, using the same embossing folder.
The word "Sending" is a die cut by Simon Says Stamp. And the word "Hugs" is stamped with a stamp by Hero arts.



Although using the same embossing folder for both cards, the result is different. The circles are all cut using Spellbinders Nestabilities.
And here is a close-up of both cards.





I am going to post the cards in the gallery of participants of the Online Card Classes.
Hope you liked your visit here!

Make lemonade!

Made this tag for the Online Card Classes :"Clear and Sheer". On day 3 we got some video's on wich we learned how we can use acetate for cardmaking. The tag I made was made after an example by Debby Hughes.





The stamped images are Lawn Fawn. Super fun! Colored it with Copic Markers. And the paper is from a small paperpad "Sunkissed" by Basic Grey. Thanks for visiting!

Clear and sheer.

Today I am sharing a card I made for the Online Card Classes " Clear and Sheer". It has all to do with using Vellum and Acetate on your card. By doing so you can get an airy look on your cards. This is my homework for day 1.


For this card I used Distress Inks and water to make a background. Next I die cut a swirl from My Favorite Things. Then embossed a sentiment by SSS. Glued it all together. The vellum strip came forward too far. So I added a drop of glue behind it. But then you saw the droplet of glue. So, I attached a little gemstone to it. It is were the "b" is :)

Antique Rose

Recently I found a stamp wich was on my wish list for quite a while: "Antique Rose Stem" by Hero Arts. I found it at " Art Specially Event" in Nijkerk- The Netherlands. And I found more: Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers! With these markers and the beautiful rose stamp I made this card.


I first stamped the flower using Versamark ink and than heat embossed it with Wow White Pearl embossing powder.


Colored the stamped image with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.


Finished the card with a Hero Arts sentiment. And some black and white paper with little flowers.
Hope to join the latest Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge with this card. The theme is: "Girly"
I think this is a Girly card with the pink, the flower and the silver lining!
Hope you liked your visit here!

The Cook

Today was the last day of my job. The job as a teacher in the fourth group on our local school. This job, initially meant to be a job for five weeks, turned out to be a job for five months! But five weeks or five months, everything comes to an end, and for me that was today. And as I did before, in situations like this, I made a little present for the children. And that is what I like to share today.


The card I made is to thank my colleagues for their support.


The bottles behind the card are the presents for the children. In the bottles is pancakeflour. You only have to add milk, and you can bake yourself a couple of pancakes.


This is in the kitchen at school, this morning.

And a little explanation about the stamps used. The Cook and his equipment are from a stampset by My Favorite Things (BB Recipe for Happiness). He was the inspiration for all this. His name is Kos, and he is the owner of a Greek restaurant " Kostas". Oh no, not in real life, but in one of the method-books for the children. The children love him and the stories of his restaurant. So, and now on to vacation and some more stamping, ha!
Thank you for visiting!

Watercolored Anemones

I really love the "Watercolored Anemones" stampset by "Wplus9". Last weeks I created several cards with it, and with a lot of pleasure I must say!


This bunch of flowers I placed in a gorgeous coffee can by "Hero Arts". The little sentiment is from a stampset by "Clearly Besotted".
