City Crafter Challenge #234

Hello!

It's Tuesday again! 
Time for a new challenge at the City Crafter Challenge blog. 
This week Ros is our host. 
Ros asks us to create a card or project and use a piece of sky. Include at least one of the following items: stars, moon, sun, rain, clouds or snow. Here is the photo inspiration: 




Our Special Guest Designer for October is the talented Greta Just hop over to her blog and see more of her beautiful cards! 


I had to create something with stars. And made two cards for two different occassions. My first card is a masculine birthday card. I added stars and my favorite colors:



I also added some hemp cord for a bow. A bow tied from hemp cord is less girlie:)



My second card is a christmas card. This embossing folder makes me happy :)




I created a monochromatic card. White on white. 
I had to add a touch of red to create a bit of contrast 
and red is perfect for Christmas:




The winner of this week's challenge will be offered a prize sponsored by 
Ros.You can win this lovely paper pad:

Lift Challenge #74

Hello!

How are you? Are you enjoying your weekend or maybe you are on fall break.
I had a sort of fall break from blogging.
 And spent quite some time with my Kitchen Aid. 
It really is the season for baking:)
And now busy with cardmaking again.
 I made a card for the current challenge at the Lift Challenge.
We're supposed to lift this card:



And to pile up my stash of christmas cards 
I grabbed a patterned paper pad I had for ages. 





I cut that snowflake paper with my kraft knife and used some washi tape too:




Till soon!

City Crafter Challenge #233

Hello!

It's Tuesday again! 
Time for a new challenge at the City Crafter Challenge blog. 
This week Kirsty is our host. 
Kirsty asks us to create a card or project based upon this photo inspiration. And please share with us what inspired you to create your card or project:





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

I was inspired by:
The map, use of wood and the sentiment: "Go somewhere"
I used a page of an old map (Which I bought at the thrift store) and punched out a place in the Netherlands where one of my sisters lives.
Being there feels like home.

 And I came up with the ultimate CAS card made by me:)




And added the sentiment: "home is where the heart is"
Very Clean and Very Simple...
In my opinion: this is all what this card needs:)




The winner of this week's challenge will be offered a GD spot with us here at CCCB

Please hop over to our Blog for more inspiration of our Guest Designer and the team. I hope you will join us this week!
Thank you for your visit and have a great day!

Marit

Hello!
I hope you all are enjoying the weekend as much as I do!

A week ago it was World Card Making Day and I attended a workshop at Marit
She is a Stampin"Up demonstrator and offered us the opportuntity to make cards with lots of SU products. I fell in love with their new Holiday collection.
All these stamps and dies are right up my alleye!
I made three cards; two Christmas cards and a birthday card. 
My wishlist is getting bigger.....:)
Marit thank you for the wonderful day; I hope to attend another workshop soon!

I love that wreath and that sentiment:





Happy with my new star embossing folder:





And waiting for my new floral stamps and dies:)



Have a great weekend!

Favorite color combo

Hello!

How are you?

I love this time of the year. 
The smell of fall, enjoying a good stew and some home made cake:)
Evenings are getting longer and I think that fall has a lot of charm. 
With leaves coloring to gold; there is something special about that Indian summer.
Fall definitely arrived here in the Netherlands. 
Temperatures are going down, a bit of rain from time to time and we can't complain about the weather after an extraordinairy summer.

I have a card to share; grey is the new white for me.
And paired up with a touch of aqua it's one of my favorite color combos:




That chipboard sentiment is part of a birthday gift sent to me by Colleen. A gorgeous gift and it's on my desk since the day it arrived. 
I tend to keep it and not use it.. I am quite a hoarder:)
I started with this chipboard sentiment. 
Paired with bling, a piece of ribbon and papers with different patterns. 
Here is my card:




Till soon!
