Lift challenge #69

Hello!

Already July and a calendar with less appointments. Summer has arrived and I love this time of the year. Not too busy and having the opportunity to spend more time doing things that I love.
It has been ages since I posted and I am just in time to post my card for the current challenge at the Lift Challenge. We're supposed to lift this card:



With not much time for cardmaking I lost my mojo......It took me quite some time to come up with something decent to submit. And I have to mention that I forgot to lift the flowers... Sorry...

I came up with just white and green:




Here is my card:




Till soon,

Summertime

Hello!

Geesh it has been more than a week since I've posted something. May and June are always busy months. I guess we all are busy. One more week and my calendar will be almost empty. I am looking forward to that:)
I made a few small things. They all turned out a bit CAS.

June and July are the months to make my own jam. The taste is delicious and I always make a few extra jars to give them to friends and family. It's the kind of gift that makes people happy.  And I love to wrap them up. And add a tag. I stumbled upon a tag die that I had to have. It is a mason jar:)

This tag is made for homemade strawberry jam. And a perfect match for the challenge at CCCB. The challenge is all about fruits.  I am just in time to submit my tag:






I hope you all are enjoying this time of the year.
Till soon!

Working ahead; Christmas in June :)

Hello,

A few weeks ago I got the cutest deer die from my sister Jacqueline. A deer is my favorite animal and I had to use it immediately. I made some die cuts and my favorite until now is the one I cut from cork.
To prevend christmas card stress I started in January. To keep on track I am making a christmas card each week. Some of the cards are based upon previous posted cards. But this one is a newbie:)
I knew it had to be a card with a lot of white, wood and of course...my deer:)
This sketch from Crazy for CAS was the perfect opportunity to make it just the way I had in mind.


A little peak of my deer:


And here is my card:





Enjoy your evening! (or day:)...)

Bij Oma Dee

Hello

Summer has arrived here and we are experiencing amazing weather. Warm, sunny and being able to spend a lot of time outside. In this extended weekend I started this morning with a summer card. A great opportunity to use a bit of my favorite paper pad of all times: Summer Fresh by Simple Stories. I cut and layered different papers.
I am playing along for the very first time at this months' challenge Bij Oma Dee. This months' theme is "vacation".  And with summer starting I came up with  a mix of patterns and colors:




Mixed and matched them all together:




Have a great day!
Stella
