Simple things

Will always be my favorite.  I love a card with lots of white, a touch  of colour and using a few dies:)
A few weeks ago Judith and Miranda were here. A fun day filled with lots  of chatting, laughing and spending  time together.  Judith brought a few dies  from Alexandra Renke along.  I immediately fell in love with  the simple and definitely stunning design. I didn't finish the card until yesterday.  I am just not productive when I'm crafting  with friends; we are always running  out of time:)
At first I wanted to add all kinds of things. But during the process of making this card nothing  could please me. In the end I decided to use the  die cuts and added a sentiment:

I have lots of ideas for this  years' christmas cards in various designs.  But I really like this simple design.  I didn't even add a piece of twine LOL!  And there are more christmas cards  coming soon:)

Thanks for stopping by; enjoy your day...

City Crafter #335

Good morning:) 

It's my turn to host this weeks' 
challenge at theCity Crafter
I am asking you to create a Halloween project.

Or If you are not into halloween 
you can create a project  and use the word
I split the word Hallo-ween because
  "Hallo" is Dutch for "Hello" :)

We arehaving Sarah  as our Guest Designer.
She is a multi talented crafter! 

Pumpkins are part of the Halloween celebration:

I didn't colour the pumpkins and  stamped a border. That's all:

You can see more projects from  Sarah and the other team  members onour blog. I am looking forward
to your take on this weeks'theme!

Birthday cards

Good morning :)
Geesh we had a lot of rain and autumn defintely has arrived! Time to stay inside and keep myself busy in my craftroom:)
I made two birthday cards and used one stamp set and the  coordinating dies. It's funny to see how these cards turned  out different. On my first card I used the stamps and on  my second card the coordinating dies:

The first one is quite feminine:

But I think the second one is perfect  for a masculine birthday card.  The little silver garlands were a gift  from my dear friend Ros

Lift Challenge #109

Good afternoon....
With more time and enough inspiration  I made a few cards. The first one to  share is based upon the Lift Challenge:

We're supposed to add a transparent  part and stick to the sketch.
I used a flourish die in a soft shade of  blue and added a strip of yellow gingham  to add some contrast. 

The embossed background is simple.  I used two embossingfolders with  dots in different sizes. The sentiment was placed  on the inside of my card  behind the mica sheet:

City Crafter #333

Good morning!
It's time for a new challenge
 at the City Crafter. Marina picked the theme:
"Did I make you up?".
And asks us to feature something 
that may not really exist.
 For example:
 a mythological creature 
or a hidden element.


I went with something that 
does not really exist;
a smiling cloud and smiling stars:)

A card for a newborn with a modern twist:
