CR84FN 56


Yes; we are almost finished with the mini make over but how are you???

I am back in my craft room; after a few weeks of planning, being busy with the living room and sorting out the closets, boxes, papers and all other kinds of goodies that you tend to keep :)
It's not only about getting new flooring and furniture but also to review everything you drag into your house in the past few years.
I feel like a professional organiser hee hee!

I did not have the time but there was also a lack of inspiration to make a few cards..And on top of that; I am not able to get crafty when my house is a mess.... 
But yesterday evening I revisited my craft room; reorganised a little and went back to stamping......
I made a card based upon a challenge that has a place in my heart. I've been playing along since the beginning but also have been MIA on a regular base the last few months.....
But; it's good to be there again!

I am talking about THIS challenge and based upon these colors:

Grey is also one of our choices for our living room ; paired up with polar blue (I'll explain more in my next post; coming soon...) 
Yellow is not my go-to color so definitely a challenge.

I made a simple card. Just what I had in mind!
A new background stamp and brocante swirl stamp from Different Colors

A sentiment from a favorite set of Waltzingmouse stamps

And the smallest stamp from a Flourishes set; a very early birthday gift from the sweetest colleague you could wish for....

Finally I added a piece of twine and a button. This is my card:

Have a lovely evening!

Hi Stella,
It's good to see you back with a beautifully stamped card. I'm pleased to hear that you have now finished all your refurbishments...your new chairs look fabulous! Such a fresh looking fabric. I love how you decorated around your T.V. We are supporting your team, too. My husband and son are Holland supporters and hoping that they win tonight...the match is just about to start...good luck!!!
I'll reply to your email, soon xxxx

Geniet maar van alles en wees trots op je creatie!

Wat een prachtig kaartje Stel! Eigenlijk zo simpel maar o zo mooi en wat leuk dat je het kleine tekststempeltje hebt gebruikt...
Je hebt m'n sms zeker niet aan je hubby laten lezen, ik mis het kaarsje bij z'n altaar ;-) en die was toch echt nodig geweest........... proost ik neem een borrel, mag morgen iets langer gestrekt.
Zie je vrijdag!

Liefs van mij
So pretty Stella! Terrific CAS design! Love the big WM sentiment and sweet tag! So happy to see you crafting! Sounds like you have been very busy! Thanks for playing with CR84FN :)

Love the "artsy" feel to your card, Stella! You've done a beautiful job with the colors, too...even the YELLOW! ;) Love how you've kept them soft and almost sheer! Love the look of that chair, too!!

Such a LOVELY card! LOVE it! So FUN to have your TV decorated with all that bright orange! Love the sneak of your mini make over and can't wait to see it all!

Hi Ikea-girl! Ben je nog in the 'orange' mood since last evening ;-) Moet zeggen dat het wel errug gezellig uit ziet bij jullie zo! Ik wil jou wel eens met die oranje pruik zien ;-) Vind je stoel er mieters uit zien, je kamer wordt volgens mij erg romantisch, maar dat kan ook niet anders wanneer je zo'n mooi elegant kaartje weet te maken met van die zachte kleurtjes. I'll stay tuned! Liefs, Ira xox
Gerdine said…
Gaaf kaartje! Erg leuk gedaan met die overlap met stempelen! Tja, Oranje, ach zullen we daar maar niet meer over spreken? :)
lynn said…
sweet challenge card, stella! the orange decorations are awesome:) love the garden, too! LOVE the chair--can't wait to see the rest of the room!
Heather Jensen said…
Beautiful job with the colors. I love the twine and pretty tag.

Your living room is hilarious. I am not a big sports fan, but there are many people in the US that are and decorate like this too. :)

Erg mooi, ik vind het stempelwerk knap gedaan. Mooie tinten bij elkaar en een chique uitstraling. Het twine met het mooie labeltje en knoop maakt het helemaal af!
Moet wel lachen om de oranje uitbundigheid rond de tv. Staat het er nu nog ;)

Groetjes, Marjan

So nice to see you back Stella, I love this delicate beauty! Lovely, and elegant, pure class!
Thanks for joining us at Cr84Fn this week!

Hi Stella - great to see you back! I do like this CAS design with the texture from the string ribbon! It's fab! Thanks for playing along with CR84FN this week!

Love the decoration around your TV - I hope the team do better tonight! And I'm really looking forward to seeing more pictures of the living room.
I love peeking at your living room, Stella! Nice new TV. ;) Bet that is a popular piece in the room. :)

I smiled when you said you felt like a professional organizer. Organizing is one of my fave hobbies! I haven't done it for some time now, because card making has taken over. ;)

Your card is so sweet! Love the tiny stamped tag, and how nice of your colleague to give that to you! So you actually work with someone who also stamps? How lucky!
