Shaker card


While we were visiting Martijn in Liverpool 
I also had the chance to spend a whole day with Ros
  in her craftroom (An amazing place!)
And I wish I could hop over on a weekly base..:)
Marcel and Martijn were off to Anfield 
and Ros and I had a wonderful day.
Her friend Pat joined us and I must admit
 I have never laughed so much in one day:)
Ros taught me how to make a shaker card.
 She is a great teacher. I am not the best student;
 I spent too much time talking and laughing.

On to my card!
I also used the smooching technique:

And placed my sentiment almost out of sight.....
That happens when you want to talk, 
laugh and craft at the same time...:

Back home I had to make another shaker card 
with all that Ros has told and taught:

I love the gold trend!

Thanks for stopping by!

Various from Ros
For the card made at home I used
supplies from the card kit from "Bij Oma Dee"
My Minds Eye On Trend Paper
Gold paper
Sentiment die from Little B

My card:
 I needed a get well card for one of my BIL. 
And making a masculine adds 
an extra challenge to this weeks theme.
 At least for me:)
With a touch of gold:

You can hardly see it on this photo

Three in a row


I hope you are all well and having a great day!
I am here with three CAS cards. 
 Made for different occasions; 
but they all have a lot of white space:)
Here we go:

I inked up a balloon stamp from MFT 
for the 4th birthday of my grandniece;

A birthday card for my eldest brother.
Made with the woodgrain embossing folder from SU 
and star dies from Paper Smooches:

One of my best buys; this sentiment die from Papertrey Ink.
And sequins of course:)

Thanks for stopping by!

Mothers Day at "Oma Dee"


A perfect day for spending a lot of time papercrafting :)
 t's clouded, chilly and from time 
to time rainy here in Gronngen. 

Wednesday my new card kit was delivered and this kit is right up my alleye. 
Gold, dots, floral patterns, vellum and 
shades of blue and blue-green. Love it! 
And I had to use it for the Mothers Day challenge at "Idee&Post"
We're supposed to make something forMothers Day.
 But my mum passed away years ago 
so I made something for one of my sisters.

A thank you card for spending time with her
 and have fun papercrafting together:

Here is my card
