New kit from Studio 92

Hello!
Welcome to a brand new blog design.
I like the crisp look but haven't 
figured out yet how to add
the "gadget" of my followers.
Blogger keeps asking me to 
"change the settings".
But I have no idea what they mean:)

Today I am sharing two cards made with 
the brand new mini kit "Bon Voyage" from 
Studio 92
 This mini kit is filled with lots of 
embellishments, twine and patterned paper. You can mix and match this kit with
 the craft supplies you already have.  There are so many possibilities! 
This kit will soon be available at Studio 92.  Besides this kit you will also find an  amazing collection of twine and other fab embellishments.
I am so honored to be a Guest Designer  and already had so much fun creating with the new mini kit!
I love to create CAS cards so this is  my CAS take on a summer-y card.  The cardbase is made with 
cardstock from my stash.  I also added the "go-see-do"sentiment.  The tag itself is also from the kit.  I LOVE that tiny tag on the sui…

This time I didn't make a card 
but a little treat box. 
It has the the shape of a cute little house:





I LOVE that food tray and bone!  You can open the door and add some tiny  chocolates or other sweets. It's also perfect for a house warming.  And/or a dog lover!

Transparent

Hello!
I really enjoyed the spring weather this week. Perfect for cleaning up the garden.  It was just a start; cutting back roses,  the lilac, some hydrangeas and removing all the dead leaves. There is still a load of moss and weed to remove  but the weather today kept me inside the house.  It's rainy and cold again. I spent my evenings crafting.  Working on projects for Studio 92, CCCB  and a card for the current Lift Challenge.  We're supposed to create a card using a transparent sheet as a card base and follow the sketch.
That transparent card became  a challenge of its own:) Folding a mica sheet took me  a while and a few attempts.. Instead of embossing I debossed my card base. Taking a picture was another challenge:



I kept it really simple.  I added a sentiment on the inside of my  card but every idea to decorate the front  was not what I had in mind. So I left it empty. Due to that I can't link up this card and enter the challenge.  But I like it.  Clear, CAS and some twine. I guess it's my …

City Crafter #353

Hello and good morning!
It's my turn to host this
weeks' challenge at theCity Crafter. I picked the theme:

"Spring is around the corner"
Create a project inspired by something  from the photo inspiration.  And tell us what you used on your project.

I went along with the orange/yellow colour. We had some lovely spring weather  and I guess I am in the mood for sunny colours!



Simple stripes for a CAS birthday card:



And I needed a gift tag.  The same colour but now with a birdie:)



This  is my favorite go-to-tag die:

And the opportunity to create with the gorgeous kits from  Studio 92.
I am so happy to be part of this team  together with Cornelie and Judith.

It ain't much of surprise that  I love to add twine to my projects. My card is based on the announcement above. I used one of the twines available in the shop. It's the only touch of colour on a white on white card:



Simplicity is the key. And my favorite style:)

Imperfect and not finished

Hello! 
I have a few cards to share.  Some finished and unfinished projects.  Two weeks ago I visited Judith  and it was an amazing day..  Judith made a few cards;  I didn't make a card at all.   We spent the day talking and laughing;  I am not productive when I visit a friend:)
Judith offered me to cut a few flowers  with dies from Alexandra Renke.  I love the simple style.  And decided to use them to practice a  bit more with my Gansai Tambi paints.  Back home I realised I cut them from thick cardstock instead of watercolouring paper.  It turned out a mess.  The paper was soaking wet, the colouring  is far from perfect and the red paint  floated into the green of the stem.  A c o m p l e t e disaster.  I made a card and once it was finshed I wanted to throw it away.  But decided to keep it.  As a reminder to use the right paper...

Here's a close up of the flower:



I think the stem is too long and I am  still not happy about adding these silver pearls :(



I decided to try it again using  the die cuts witho…
