World card making day


It's World Card Making Day and I had a 
few hours to spend in my craft room. 
I made a christmas card:

I decided to use patterned paper from the Girls'Paperie
 that I hoarded a few years ago. 
To be honest; I had to use it because my stash of papers
 and paper pads is HUGE.
And it really is time to use them :) 
My blue snowflake is not the same shade of blue as 
you see in the patterned paper. 
But it's the best possible match with my colors of blue cardstock.

Have a wonderful weekend!

City Crafter #281

Hello everyone

It's Tuesday and that means 
 a brand new challenge at the 
Today Marina is our host and
she picked the theme:"Geek chic".
And she asks us to use the theme of science, 
technology or sci-fi. Or be inspired by the mood board)

(moodboard created by Marina herself)

My take is based upon science;
I choose a take on astronomy.

A star as a focal point, 
the galaxy created with a splatter stamp 
and the sequins are my comets and planets:)
I think it will work for a bright, masculine card:

Our Guest Designer for this week is Padooria
You can find more inspiration from her and 
 the other team members on our blog.
I hope you will have time to play along; 
the winner will be offered a spot as our Guest Designer.

 Thanks for stopping by; have a great day!

Color & Cardstock


A very relaxing Sunday...
Time to share a few cards
I made recently.

This card is made with papers 
 sent to me by Marit.

It turned out a birthday card in bright colors.
I love these balloons!

 I attended a workshop at Bij Oma Dee.
Theme of the workshop was "Cardstock only". 
 but I cheated a bit with my first card :)

A small strip in fact LOL

This card is made with a speech bubble die:

And  I LOVE that sentiment stamp from Lawn fawn!

Have a great Sunday!

Lift Challenge #92


It's already Saturday evening!
Already back to work for two weeks. 
And besides work I spent time baking, 
working in the garden, 
and decluttered a few closets.

Today I had time to join the Lift Challenge.
We're supposed to use triangles on our card 
(no banners or flags)

I used a triangle stamp:

And paired it up with sequins, 
vellum and my favorite bird:) 

Have a great weekend!

City Crafter #280

Hello everyone!

It's Tuesday again and that means 

time for a new challenge at the City Crafter
Today it's my turn to host 
and this weeks' theme is:
"Fall has arrived"

(photo credit)

Create a card or project and pick 
an element of the inspiration photo.

Fall has just started and yes leafs are falling. 
But it's also harvest time so 
that's also a great idea to start with. 
Or create a view with hills or borders.
 Just have fun!

My take on this theme is based upon
 the borders in the inspiration photo:

It turned out a Christmas card LOL!

(My apologies for the poor quality of the photos;
 it was clouded and dull when I took them..)

You can find more inspiration from our 
Guest Designer Andie Miller and
 the other team members on our blog.
 I hope that you will join us this week; 
the winner will be invited to join us
as a Guest Designer.
 Thanks for stopping by!
