For the "90 minute scramble 98" on Hero Arts blog I made a card with snowflakes. Wich you can see here:

After that I read a blogpost on Wplus9 Blog by Maureen Merrit. She is very talented and I love her cards. You can find her own blog here:

On Wplus9 blog she showed how you can make different looking cards with the same stampset.
You can read it here:

And off course I wanted to try it myself, and with the same stampset as I used at the 90 minute scramble. Here they come!

All of these cards are made with a Hero Arts stampset: "Enjoy the seasons" CG210.
After stamping the snowflakes I added some other stamps and embellishments.
Very fun to do, I can recommand it!
Thanks for visiting,that is much appreciated!

Joy to You

Like to show you a card I made for Virginia's Challenge of this month:"All things Distressed". You can find it here:

It is one of my Christmas cards. The background is colored and stamped with Distress Inks. Both stamps in the background are Hero Arts.Than stamped snowflakes on it, and embossed it with white embossing powder. And because the edges were a little wet, the embossing powder sticked on to it like snow. I like that!

The tree and the die cut snowflakes are cut with my Cricut Machine and covered with Stickles "Frosted Lace". The house stamp is "We R Memory Keepers". And finally the "Bramble Circle" is Memory Box.

More than one tree

It is already a month ago since I last posted a blog post. More than time for a new post. Today a story about trees.
I can tell you: I love trees!
Thats one of the reasons that I often go to our little forest.

You can see my bike against the fence. Behind it an anouncement about our canoe center. You can rent a canoe and go through our forest and meadows by canoe!

And now on to my card.
You probably can understand that when I saw a Hero Arts stamp with a tree, I had to buy it!

When I first inked it up, I was excited, but after I stamped it, I was not satified at all. To be more precise: I made 25 impressions before I felt a little satisfied. Half way in the proces, I stamped 4 trees in a row. I liked the second and the last tree, but not the first and the third in the row. I was in doubt.....But one of those days, when I went on my bike through my village, I even saw those trees along the way, even the first, in a very special late afternoon light! It felt as if I got a present!

The final step was to make a card with these trees in a row. Embellished it with some autumn leaves. Added a sentiment. Love the result! Hope you do! I decided to enter this card in the "Less is more" Challenge # 198 : "More than one tree".

Clean and Simple

If you are a card maker you probably know what it means: Clean and Simple. But if not, I have to explain a little. To say it very Simple: a card with a lot of unused withe space, and a very special eye catching element on it. There have to be less layers and less embellisments on it than you useually add.

I made a card for Virginia's Challenge. The Challenge is to make a Clean and Simple card. Here is my entry for the challenge.

There are only two stamps on this card. The star stamp is by " My Minds Eye" from the Laundry Line. And the sentiment is by "Studio G".
Now, is this simple or what?!

Autumn in our little forest "Loetbos".

On this sunny Sunday, I like to show you some photo's made in our little forest with the name : " Loetbos". This forest is planted along a little river.....ehm...more like a ditch kind of river :) with the name: "Loet".
Don't ask me what that means, I don't know. I like to go there by bike, and than make a walk, and get my bike again back home. There's always something beautiful to see, and besides that: I like to be outside in the fresh air. Here is what I came across last week.

What is he seeing?

Dark clouds....will I be back home before it is starting to rain again?

And what is that little thing with orange drops? A toadstool...but what about the drops?

A little beast on a toadstool...a much more on my legs and arms..... :(

A liitle spider here....on eeh...some potatoes... :)

This is only a few precious things I saw. Hope you liked it to be here for a moment!
