After I saw some cards with snowflakes on Instagram, made by Barb, I had to try them myself. And she saw them from someone else. So fun how you can be inspired by others.
The snowflake is a die by Simon Says Stamp. After die cutting, I covered the snowflakes with Stickles. Behind the snowflake an area is colored with Distress Inks. The sentiment on the pink one says Winter Greetings in dutch.

The background is a background stamp by Hero Arts. First stamped the background and heat embossed it with WoW Embossingpowders.

The sentiment on the left is a print made with my computer, and the right one is from a Hero Arts stampset.
These cards were easy to make, and with a fun result!

Flourish Layering stencil

The card I am sharing today is made with a stencil. 
The Flourish Layering Stencil by Stampers Anonymous. I already used it often. It is Gorgeous. First added the stencil on top of a peace of Pearl notecard. Than covered it with Wendi Vecchi embossing paste. Next poured some WoW Silver Hologram  Sparkle embossingpowder over it and heat embossed it. 
This proces gives a beautiful raised effect! This idea is not mine. It comes from Jennifer Mcquire. She always comes with the most wonderful ideas! 
The sentiment is Hero Arts. And I added some snowflakes by Craft Emotions.
Thank you for visiting!

Folk Dance Die

Last week I playef with the Folk Dance Die by Simon Says Stamp. I made two cards with it. One is Holiday related, the other is not. For the first card I cut a piece of paper with the die. Bevor using it for a card I used it for my second card as a stencil. I put the "stencil" on a piece of paper I already had colored with green Ink. Then applied glimmer paste over it and lifted the "stencil" from it. The result you see on the second Holiday themed card in this blog post. For the first card I used the "stencil" as a gorgeous glimmery background.
Added a a vellum heart and the word Hugs. Wich is a die cut by SSS.

The vellum heart is cut with a Altenew die cut.

For this card I made a sentiment with my printer and foiled it with my Mini Minc. The Circle is Spellbinders. The holly is a punch.

And here is the die cut plate by SSS.

Online Card Class

I was lucky to be able to participate in the Online Card Class: Clean and Simple Holiday. For the Class I made several cards and this card is for day 3: Use your scraps! 
For this card I used the leftover of the card below. The card with the 3 candles. These cards, to be more precise, 310 of them, are in the make for the elderly people of our Church community. They will get the card with a little present and a visit of one of us. What is more important: the card of the visit? Who knows?
But, from the leftover peace with the cutout flames I made the card above. 

Paper by Basic Grey. Glitter paper by Sostrene Grene. Flames are cut with my Cricut.

A part of this poem will be added in the card. And in the back you see the tablecloth of our Church. Haha.
Thank you for visiting!

Peek a boo

Today I like to share a "Peek a boo" card. Saw them at Jennifer McGuire's blog but it seemed to difficult for me.You can see her Peek a boo cards here: 
 But encouraged by a friend I gave it a try. This is my Peek a boo card.
Used a Dutch Doo-ba-doo stencil for the leaves. The fun animal stamps are Hero Arts.

I must admit that this final result is the third attempt, but now I am sattisfied. It was fun to do.
Thanks for visiting!
