City Crafter #229


I am super excited and still on cloud nine.....today I am joining the incredible talented ladies from the City Crafter Challenge Blog as a Design Team member!!!! I could hardly believe my eyes when I got the mail from Kirsty. I feel privileged and honored and hope that we can be a source of inspiration for you. And join us in our challenges.

This week Kirsty is our host. And asks us to join in the trend of Diagonals. And use them on your card or project. 
This is the photo inspiration:

Our Guest Designer this week is the talented Carol of Just me.. Just hop over to her blog and see more of her beautiful creations! 

Diagonals became my focal point to say "hi" :)

City Crafter Challenge # 228


How are you?  This afternoon I had to go to my craftroom and make a few cards :) This one is made for the current challenge at the City Crafter. We're supposed to use at least one Butterfly on our project or card.

I used only one and made it the center of my card:

I really enjoy making cards in a fresh, bright and CAS style lately. And sometimes adding a few bits and pieces. But this one is quite CAS:

Enjoy your weekend!

Lift challenge #71


How are you?
I am still enjoying my vacation.... 
We spent our vacation at home and my to do list is finished. 
Which feels great:)
 I am happy, relaxed and I have a lot of ideas for cards.
So I had to play along in the current challenge at the Lift Challenge
We're supposed to lift this card:

I made a card a gave it a bit of a twist. And used stars instead of squares:

I added some enamel dots and sequins but did not place them on the edges of my star frames. My card turned out a bit different:

Hope you are all well and enjoying your evening/day

I can see clearly


I am happy and honored to be this weeks' GD at the City Crafter Challenge. Theme of this week is: "I can see clearly"

Use acetate, vellum, glossy accents, translucent embossing paste, clear plastic, etc! Make sure we can see your clear element on the card or project.

I choose white, grey and yellow. And some vellum. This is my take on the theme:

And...I am offering a prize for this challenge:)
The prize is a mini kit for Christmas cards. The patterned paper is suitable for (example) scandinavian cards, a shabby touch or as a start for a mixed media project. The content of this kit:

16 sheets of double sided paper 15x15 cm
6 sheets of silver cardstock 15x17 cm
8 white cards & envelopes
4 christmas tags
grey ribbon with white hearts
silver yarn
silver clothespins
sequins (large and small ones)
silver bells

I hope you can play along!
Till soon!

How are you?
 We are enjoying our vacation at home :). 
After a lot of work in the front yard our gardening project is continued in our back yard. 
And now it's good to sit down after a day of digging, weeding and rearranging plants. 
I guess we did about 30% of the backyard. There is enough work again tomorrow:)

Time to share a card!
I made a birthday card and it's already delivered. A masculine card in soft colors.
 I chose a soft shade of green instead of white for a card base.
And added a bit of blue, grey, wood and some bling.
I kept the negative die cuts in my sentiment:

Here is my card:

I'll be back tomorrow with a little something you can win:)
Hope you are all well and enjoying your day,
