Bird and cage

Today I like to show one of the cards I recently made. The panel is made with little stamps and Distress Inks on watercolor paper. The cage is

cut with my Cricut machine. The bird is by Different Colors, stamped and heat embossed with white embossing powder, and also colored with Distress Inks. I like cages and I like birds, but I don't like birds in cages, so I put the bird at the outside of the cage. He can fly away if he would like.

Today I like to share a card I made with Hero Arts stamps. And I took inspiration from the last OCC : Sparkle and Shine.

In the background two larger stamps: Musical background and Sweet Treads Antique. Stamped them with Versa Mark and brushed Perfect Pearls over it. The sentiment says: Happy birthday in dutch. Its Marianne Design. The flowers are also Hero Arts -CL184 Thoughtful Messages- and so are the leaves. Stamped with Versa Mark and heat embossed with White embossing powder by WOW.

Enjoy your day!

Sparkle and Shine

Here is another card I made for the Online Card Class: Sparkle and Shine. For this card I used my new Embellishment Mousse, with a color named: Powder Blue.

And no, it isn't Christmas, but summer is also a good excuse to use some sparkle. As I think of the sun shining on waves in the late afternoon, bringing a golden glow at the sea. And dewdrops glisten in early morninglight!

For this card I used a stencil of Donna Downey for Prima Marketing. The striped paper is "Dear Lizzy" paper. First added the mousse with a Ranger Distress tool. Than took some embossing paste in white and added a little amount of the blue mousse to it, so that the paste got the same blue color, and added it on the stencil too. I love the partial covering! And finally removed the stencil and added some Hero Arts Prisma Glitter. The " Hugs" sentiment is SSS.
The idea for this card came from Shari Carrol.
Hope you enjoyed your visit here!

Online Card Class

Last days I was participating in the Online Card Class: "Sparkle and Shine". This is one of the cards I made for this Class. To be more precise: for day 4. I made this card after an example of Debby Hughes. I am an admirer of her work.

The background is stamped with a backgroundstamp by Hero Arts, CG122, using Versa Mark. And covered with perfect pearls. Than stamped over it with a backgroundstamp by IO, CC050 C-A-C Script. The flowers are SSS. "Best Mom Ever" SSS130501. Stamped and white embossed. The open spaces are covered with a Versa Mark pen and covered with perfect pearls.
The sentiment is dutch and says: congratulations. I recently bought it this stampset with only dutch sentiments. Its "Marianne Design" CS0987.

We went to Belgium for a couple of days. We loved it to be there again! This time we had a vacation appartment in Vielsalm. We were walking around in the hills and enjoying all the beautiful views.

Up in the hills near Grand Halleux.

I really love streaming water, this is the Aisne.

A crusifix beside the path.

And this is the card I made for our hostess. She was so very friendly!
I took some craft supplies with me to our vacation appartment. Flowers are SSS, sentiment is HA.

I enjoyed it so much to see the daffodils again this year! The bright yellow made me happy!

Made this daffodil bouquet with a stamp set by Simon Says Stamp. The sentiment is part of the recollections series sold by Michaels. I made the background myself with a Hero Arts leaves stamp. Stamped it with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink. And after that filled the gaps with the same color and water. The flowers are colored with Copic Markers.
Happy Spring!
