New Year, Fresh Start

Happy New Year! 2017, a new year, a fresh new start. Hope it will bring the wishes of your heart. Last week we got some foggy weather and temps below zero, wich gives awesome pictures.

These photo's are taken not far from were I live. Our village is surrounded by meadows, and it is great to go out for a walk. Thats what we did on that particular day. I felt inspired by what I saw. At home I tried to translate what I saw on paper, using stamps and ink.

Here is another photo of that day. Hope you see what I meant by translate it to paper.

The stamps I used are Impression Obsession: F16235 Berry Stem. And two stamps from Magenta: M0732 and L0693. Inks from Colorbox and Versa Magic and some embossing to get that frosty look. And a white gel pen.
Thanks for visiting! Always much appreciated!!!

Blessed Christmas

Love to show a card I made with a new Simon Says Stamp stampset and two older Hero Arts background stamps.

The SSS stampset is called " Magical Christmas " (SSS101669) and behind it you see the "Wood Background" (CG506) and behind that you see "Branch Background" (CG122) by Hero Arts.
Thank you for visiting my blog!

Today it's the first day of December already. The last month of 2016. Can you imagine? It is also a month ago since I last added a blogpost. So sorry! Was very busy. But this week I managed to make some Christmas cards. Finally! And here is one of them.

The poinsettia is Hero Arts. And so is the sentiment. The poinsettia is colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Behind it are some snowflakes cut with my Cricut machine.

It is almost the last day of my personal October challenge. I challenged my self to post a card everyday during this month. Cards I made for Church. Cards that will be send to elderly and ill people as a greet from our churchcommunity. I already made lots of these cards and always make photo's to document for myself. But during this month I thought it a good idea to share some of them. Two times I fell of and forgot to post, my excuses for that. And now to todays card.

The stamp I made this card with is a product of "Creafine", a dutch lady who brings out her OWN stamp sets. Except for the flowers stamp there are two dutch sentiments. One of them says:" Beterschapsbloemetje". The butterfly is Hero Arts, from the Antique Engravings stamp set.
Thanks for your visit! And remember: everyone who leave me a comment this month has a chance to get a little prize package from me!

Do you remember the men who owned a watch on a chain in their pocket? I do, the grandfather of my father had one.
So, this card is especially for a man, an elderly man, who can remember this.

The watch stamp is Deep Red "Pocket Watch". SKU 3x400115. The background is part of a stampset by Stampers Anonymous. "Attic Treasures" CMS 123. And do you see the metal pieces? These are components of the inside of a watch.
