Place to Start June, 2020 Challenge: Create A Shaped Card

Good morning everyone, how are you doing! The month flies by, as usual. Here everything is reasonably under control and life goes on again. There are many discussions going on about whether or not to wear a mouth mask or whether or not to keep it 1.5 meters distance. Anyway. I have to tell you honestly, I use my common sense and I try not to worry too much. In addition, I rely on all those clever minds who are currently working on vaccines to eventually suppress the virus and that we can quickly return to the old normal! In the meantime I am overjoyed with my hobbies and I love to be able to tinker in my craft room!

Today, the first monday of the month, is the start of a new A Place to Start Challenge.

This month the prompt is: Create a shaped card!

So, I have made a Flowerpot Card!

Inside the card there is space for a little note;

I had so much fun making these cards and they are always handy when you need to send out a little friendly note, so that is why I made two of them 🙂

This is how I have made my card:
1. I first break my head how to shape the flower pot, than I made a sketch and a pattern out of that sketch.
2. I cut the pattern out of the cardstock.
3. I die cutted some paper flowers in pink, red and whites.
4. I cut a little rectangle, placed some note paper on it en glued all the flowers at the top.
5. The vintage labels come from the Graphics Fairy Premium Member Website. I thought they would look very cute on the flowerpots and gave them a somewhat vintage look.
6. I added some paper stripes at the top of the flowerpot so it looks like they have a ribbon border.
7. I distressed everything with some distress ink.
8. I stamped the Happy Birthday stamps on the labels.

Creative Knockouts Challenge #352 – Fancy Flourishes- Star Stampz

Hello my crafty friends! It’s time for another challenge over at The Creative Knockouts!

Our theme for this week is: Fancy Flourishes!

Our sponsor is: Star Stampz

This is my card using the image called Balloon and Ice Cream

I love this happy little chibi girl with the balloons and the ice cream!

This is how I made my card:

  1. First, I printed this incredibly fun digital stamp “Balloon and Ice Cream” on a somewhat thicker paper.
  2. Then I colored it with my alcohol markers.
  3. I thought to give her dress some golden glitter dots 🙂
  4. I cut the stripes from different colors of thin design papers and place them on a card.
  5. I decided to do the mat in a contrasting color.
  6. I doodled the “fancy florish’ with a white gellyrol pen.
  7. And I added some tiny bling bling 🙂
  8. I stamped the Happy Birthday stamp with versamark ink on white cardstock and placed it on my card too.

With this card I would love to play along in the following challenges:

Place to Start May, 2020 Challenge: Create A Custom Background

Hello creative busy bees! How are you doing? I hope you are doing well and that you are looking forward to a nice creative challenge!

Because it’s time again for a challenge on the Place to Start challenge blog. This month the challenge is to make your own background paper. The technique doesn’t matter. You can also use a self-made drawing or something similar. I used one of mine self made gelli print backgrounds and one of my doodles.

Details about my card:
The card was very quick made! I cut a piece of the gelli plate print for my base card. I cut my little girl doodle and place it on the card and a cut a piece from the design paper XOXO that I have used for my Derek Clapton card earlier this week.


Take good care of yourself! Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope to see you again very soon and in good health! And be sure and join in our monthly challenge at a Place to Start Blog! Please click on the link to join in the fun, I can’t wait to see what you create!!!
