CCCB # 48 "The King and I"

How are you? The week has just started and after a few days without being in the mood for crafting I realised that time is running short for one of my favorite challenges at the City Crafter Challenge Blog And I wanted to submit a card..... This week you have to add a crown(s) to your project.
Here is the photo inspiration:

I made a card with my favorite embellishments and colors...:)
The sentiment is a bit "pale" but you can read the sentiment in the close up:

A labelstamp from Waltzingmouse stamps ( Rescue Remedies) stamped with pink and after cutting and embossing I inked the edges with baby blue. Flowers from Mulberry, pin from me :) and  the crown, button and ribbon are from my stash. The paper on the bottom of my card is stamped with my "Floral" stamp from Darkroom Door. The pink polka dotted paper is from Tilda and that gorgeous blue paper is from a paper pad from Papermania that Ros sent me. I used two different border …

Waltzingmouse sketch challenge # 38

How are you? After a few days without inspiration I came up with an idea for this weeks' Waltzingmouse sketch challenge

This is the sketch

A circle card is a challenge of its own but I came up with one:) I made a circle card with  my Spellbinder scalloped circle dies and covered it with pink cardstock . On top of that a circle made of scraps  I ordered some new papers so I wanted to use some scraps... I need a bit more storage space  :) !!! I cut a border with a new Creatables die; it looks like lace and I love it. All the pieces of my card were cut and embossed. I made this label  ( Rescue Remedies additions) a while ago. I found it yesterday between my scraps and my card started from there..... The pin is made by me; I bought some heart shaped pearls and I think it looks sweet on this card.

I slightly inked the edges of my card and label with Antique Linen distress ink, added a few roses,some seam binding from Memrie Mare and an adhesive pearl. Here is my card: 



How are you? Just fine and enjoying your weekend? It's Sunday and that means time for a new challenge at CR84FN!
Just take a look at the gorgeous colors for this week:

When there is blue involved you can count me in :) I used a few of my scraps for this card and added an inked frame from Tattered Angels. On the right side of my card I stamped with one of "Text it" stamps from Waltzingmouse stamps. The sentiment is also from Waltzingmouse ( Rescue Remedies additions) No card without a flower :) and a pin made by me. I added a  few stitches; here is a close up:

I used one of my MS punches, added some lace and on the left side of my card some grey/white gingham ribbon. I inked the edges and....ready! Here is my card:

Till soon! Stella 

CCCB # 47 "In my pocket"

Yes. it's weekend and that means more time for crafting :) One of my sisters came here on Thursday and we went to the city for some shopping, lunch and had a wonderful time. Thursday evening I cooked her favorite dinner and we spent the evening talking, laughing and crafting . My sister creates breathtaking quilts and all kinds of other quilt project. It's fun to be crafting together; especially with one of my sisters! She went home yesterday and after she left I finished my project for this weeks' challenge at the City Crafters Challenge Blog. This week you have to create a card, project or tag with a pocket. Here is a gorgeous picture with pockets:

The last few weeks I made a lot of pins and I have been looking for a sort of wrapping to send them to others. This challenge is a perfect opportunity to create something for that purpose.
Tags are great way to add some pins and put them in a pocket. And a great way to use some scraps; I have a lot of paper scraps. Like the…

Wedding and CCCB # 46 "Spring Fling"

Hello everyone! Are you all having a great weekend? Our weekend started yesterday; one of our very best friends got married yesterday and I had the privilege to be one of the witnesses for the bride! It started yesterday morning with a lot of stress. I bought a black velvet skirt (gorgeous; length just above my knees) and guess what; the zipper broke after I'd put it on. I dressed up on Thursday  to check if everything was ok..You know; are all the buttons ok and so on.. and there was nothing  wrong with that zipper. But it broke. And it was 8.30 AM and we had to leave at 8.45 AM. Get the picture; all dressed up,  panties, high heels and makeup and you find out that there is something very wrong wth your skirt....argh!!!! Thank God there was one other skirtI could wear and off we went.... And to say it in a well mannered way; I was NOT amused....... Without furhter delay we arrived and we had a fabulous and spectacular day. The bride was breathtaking...I'll post a picture as sonn a…
