I was excited to work with a stamp from Bugaboo Stamps: the “spring elephant” . You can use “spring elephant”, for many of your card projects! I think it is perfect for a new little baby girl too! What do you think?! But of course, you can use it on many other projects too.
Here is what I have created:
March 22 again! And spring too. I must honestly tell you that it was difficult to get started to make the map. Not because of this very nice stamp. Then I spoke to myself very strict and said: now you sit down and you are going to make something! Maybe not a very nice card, but at least I did my best. And once you have started, the rest actually goes by itself. The hardest part is getting started.
I took some of my cutting dies this time. Also because I wanted to use that super cute bow. It was not easy to stick the bow, but in the end it worked out with some brutal force. 🙂 I put some bling bling things on those spots where the designer of this stamp drew water droplets. And a bling bling flower on the spot of the little snowflake. I destressed the edges of the desing paper very lightly.
With this very cute stamp of the spring elephant, my card is perfect to make a little girl happy, I think!
I’m so excited to announce that I have joined the All Fun Challenges Design Team! I look forward to sharing some super fun challenges with you for this super creative team. I’m jumping right in with the March Challenge #4!

I was excited to work with the “Young Inari and kitsune” coloring page. This image is part of a coloring book, named Goddesses of Myths . The coloringbook is as beautiful like the name tells you. Besides coloringbooks for adults they also sell digital stamps for crafters. And that is why I decided to make a cart of my finished project!
Here is what I have created:
Guess what I was singing when I was working on my project? Exactly: “Little China Girl” by David Bowie!
Some details about the making of my card: I have to tell you that for this project I have pulled out my entire watercolor assortment! Everything was used: water color, pearl water color, aqua markers, water color pencils, gel pens and a white gelly roller. As I say: everything! What I also did before I start to paint, is google on “how does chinese wolves looks like”, “how does a chinese landscape look like”, I have googled on “chinese girls” … etc. I did a little bit of a research before I started my project! Like we use to say in the Netherlands: Klaar is Klara! (-> “Klara” is ready 🙂 )
With this beautiful “Young Inari and kitsune” coloring page, my card has become a beautiful mixed media artwork! It was very nice to make, challenging, but with a good result! I love that.
