Another cracker!

Same image and design paper set as yesterday's card, but this time with red linings. I like the fact that I left out the yellow of the image, thinks it suits even more with the papers this way.

Happy new year

I counted my christmas cards tonight and I appear to have about 12, where I need at least as much as 18 or something. So I got right into my stash to make some more! This card is made with a clear stamp of My Favorite Things, design paper by Alisha Gordon and a sentiment by Little Miss Evie. I love the paper!

Christmas with Magnolia

This card is made with a rubber stamp by Magnolia and design paper by Marianne Design. A lovely set of papers, which are not christmas themed, but can be used really well for a christmas card I think.

Tag you're it!

I was hopping the internet when I got inspired by this tag, made by Danni. Thanks for your inspirational post! I decided to make a tag myself and also to join the Tag You're It competition at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. I also like to join the December Challenge at Kit and Clowder, with the Animal theme.

Made this card with a painting technique called "Shadow Painting", which makes use of water paint and a special liner that prevents bleeding of the colors. Love the design papers that come with them, so couldn't wait to make some cards. Here are the first two!

New Christmas idea

For this card I didn't color any image, but used some nice design paper of Authentique and combined it with one of my newest dies by Memory Box. They have lovely dies for borders that don't cut the lower part of your paper off. The sentiment is a clear stamp by Marianne Design.

Christmas is coming?!

This is one of my first christmas cards of the year. I don't really have those christmas-feelings yet, but well.. you have to start right? It took me quite some time, trail and error to find the right lay-out for this card. Had to remove and replace a lot, but I'm quite happy with the result. The image is by Tiddly Inks

Happy birthday

Today I thought to give a try to long curled hair, as I just finished this part of the Kit & Clowder coloring classes. The image is by Simply Betty Stamps and well... it turned out pretty good in my opinion! I'm not so sure about the card itself, but pretty happy with the coloring at least.

And as it turns out more often, my crafting day starts with a screwed-up make and then better ones keep coming ;) Here's a cuty from Saturated Canary, which I colored and made into a bookmark. Since it has to fit within the pages, I had to keep it pretty clean, although some pearls would have look great here, I guess. Still thinking if I should made it into a card anyway...

Started coloring another image, but that turned out to be a little mess, so then I made this one. The image is from Whimsie Doodles. Originally, it was made for the 4th of July, but I made here into a Christmas/happy new year card. It also enabled me to use my newest color Stickles: gold! Thanks for visiting and see you around!

This card is made with a Magnolia stamp, design paper from Kars and some tags from a paper pack of Papermania. As I started, I found it hard to fit my colored image with any design paper, but in the end I'm very happy with this result. What some embellies/tags can do for a card...

Shop till you drop

Today I couldn't even longer resist all the discounts provided by Kit & Clowder at their Facebook 3000 member party. This fabulous group grows as we speak and I can only recommend becoming a member. I bought some digi images from All Dressed Up, and this shopping girl is one of them I made into a card today. Quite happy with the result! 

The E04 marker appears not to only be perfect for the cast shadows on her skin, but also for giving an "old-pink" look to her clothes. This is also the first time I used a border die (this one is by Stampin' Up) and I love the result.

Bunch of hearts

Just a new card for this weekend! I tried to make some extra pleads and I'm quite pleased with the result. And what to think of those nice Heart Flowers?

Simply Gorjuss

Today I bought my first Distress Ink: walnut stain. Decided to buy one first, to see if I would like the technique. My first try turned out pretty well, I think. Off course I need some practice to prevent harsh stripes and stuff, but still I'm already happy with this result. I used a rubber stamp of Gorjuss, still one of my favorites. Have a nice weekend all!

Best buds

Just finished this card. I stamped the two different images of My Favorite Things next to each other and used one of my new die cut sets.

Just because

I found out a new crafting shop in my neighbourhood, so I took my bike and cycled to the shop this afternoon. It sells a lot of dies, stamps, embossing folder and all kind of accessory crafting stuff. Happy me! Although I don't know if this shop so nearby will do any good for my bank account ;)

One of the dies I bought is from a set by Nellie Snellen. I used this to make this CAS card. The sentiment is made with a alphabet set from Paper Smooches.

Tiddly Inks - Go green

I really liked to join the Green challenge at Tiddly Inks Challenge blog, but didn't have time this week to actually color an image and make a card. Although I tried several times coloring this image, it didn't become what I wanted to be. I struggled with the hair, the color combos, the dress.. almost everything. But finally, this Friday evening I did a better job. I think it's the weekend spirit that's needed for crafting ;)

Welcome baby

Hi all, nice to see you around again. Tonight I'd like to show you this card I made with a stamp from Paper Smooches. As an inspiration for this card I used the sketch #197 of Sunday Sketch & Stamp and the colors of Sunday Stamps! challenge 71. These colors went so well with the image, I really like the combination. This card also fits to join The Corrosive Challenge: "Animals" and the Card a Day Blog challenge "Baby". 

Thanks for passing by and have a nice day!
