This is my card using the image called Sher and Mike.

Oh, you know me and my association with all kinds of songs and lyrics while I am crafting. This cute image reminds me of a Dutch child song: “Hanneke en Janneke“. It is a song about two little friends, who are walking under mothers umbrella, while the rain sings a song…

So you now know why I used this design papers in the colors of the Dutch flag: red, white and blue! Besides, on this moment it is realy raining cat’s and dogs out here, so I had a lot of inspiration , to make this card!

This is how I made my card:

  1. First, I printed this incredibly fun digital stamp “Sher and Mike” on a somewhat thicker paper.
  2. Then I colored it with my alcohol markers For the shading I used some color pencils too.
  3. The images is very detailed. I colored it in with just a few colors of my alcohol markers.
  4. I also colored the whole background of my image with a greyish/blue light color. This time I made little rounds with my brushtip of my alcoholmarker, so the backround look like rainy clouds.
  5. When I was working on it, I decided to ad some more details to the image. So I draw a little waterpool around the feets of the characters. And I added some dots to the rain boots of the little girl. And if you noticed: I could not stop being worried about the cold feets of the boy in the waterpool, so I colored the whole slippers blue and it looks now that he has better shoes for this kind of wheater LOL (it was just a happy accident , but do not tell anybody further 😉 )
  6. I matted my colored image into a square piece of design paper.
  7. I add some cute little glitter raindrops to the card. Just for a little fun.
  8. Than I glued my image on a larger piece of cardstock using the same red as my designpapers.
  9. Because with the distressed corners the cards looks a little vintage and so the card became quit eclectic. That is why I thought I could ad a vintage style bow to my card too.

The design paper I have used, is from my stash. I used a paperpack from Marianne Designs, called Dutch Design and I have used a paperpack from Craftsensations.

Now I hope you’ll join us for this fun challenge at the Creative Knock Outs Challenge blog, for your chance to win 2 prices!

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

Place to Start March, 2020 Challenge: Use A Household Product

I can hardly believe it is already March! But the new challenge at A Place To Start, makes me believe that it is really true! And this month we challenge you to use a household product as an embellishment (paper clip, coffee filter shape, tissue paper flower, waxed paper (as a substitute for vellum or shaker pocket, etc.)) If that is not a challenge! But for a creative person, this must succeed.

I made a small knit from 2 toothpicks! Here is my card, I hope you like it!!!

How I made my card:
1. With 2 toothpicks and embroidery thread I have set up a knitwear.
2. I then wound a small ball of yarn to suggest a small ball of wool.
3. At the end of the toothpicks I have glued 2 beads.
4. I have glued a heart-shaped doily onto a card.
5. I have a piece of washi tape that looks like a measuring tape: perfect for this card!
6. I have given my little knitwear a nice place on my card.
7. I added some sequins for the fun.
8. And I have a stamp set from Alie- express with this fun text saying: “You keep me from unraveling”.
I stamped this text with versamark ink and embossed it with white embossing powder.

Here you can see a detailed look of the final embellishment:

Creative Knockouts Challenge #338- Flower Power- SheepSki Designs

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

Our theme for this week is: Flower Power! We challenge you to use flowers on your card whether it be a part of your image, your paper or mebellishments.

Our sponsor is: SheepSki Designs

This is my card using the image called Giant Daisies.

As you might know me by now, you know that I loooooove gnomes! And I love Daisies too, so it was not hard for me to choose one stamp this weeks challenge!

This is how I made my card:

  1. First, I printed this incredibly fun digital stamp “Giant Daisies” on a somewhat thicker paper.
  2. Then I colored it with my alcohol markers For the shading I used some color pencils too.
  3. I cut my colored image into a square and matted on a blue piece of cardstock.
  4. When I was cutting the image I thought it might be nice to do the Daisie flower in 3D effect.
  5. So I printed the image out twice and colored the daisie, cut it out and put it with a piece of foam on to the original image.
  6. I add some glitter to the heart of the daisie flower. Just for a little fun.
  7. Than I glued my image on a larger piece of pattern paper with the same blue blackground as the image.
  8. I stamped the Happy Birthday stamp with versamark ink on black cardstock and embossed it with the heat gun and white embossing powder.
  9. And last but not least I added two tiny hearts onto the card.

Creative Knockouts Challenge #336-Love/Valentine’s Day-The Paper Shelter

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

Our theme for this week is: LOVE!

Our sponsor is: The Paper Shelter

This is my card using the image called Love is Chemistry.

When I first saw this very cute illustration, I immediately thought of the song “Love potion number 9”. It was in my head all the time while I was crafting!

How I made my card:

  1. First, I printed this incredibly fun digital stamp “Love is Chemistry” on a somewhat thicker paper.
  2. Then I colored it with my promarkers.
  3. I like this stamp so much that I don’t want too much hassle around it. On the background of the card I decided to stick some nice designer paper on top of each other..
  4. Then I punched out some hearts and the letters LOVE and stuck them on my card.

And it really isn’t any more! But that is not necessary. The illustration of The Paper Shelter is beautiful enough!

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

Place to Start February Challenge: Create A Masculine Card or Project

I have also recently become a design team member of the incredibly fun challenge blog A Place to Start! Place to Start has a new challenge starting today!!! Here is my first contribution for the month of February.

The theme this month is: Create A Masculine Card or Project.
Please click on the link to join in the fun, I can’t wait to see what you create!!!

Here is my card, I hope you like it!!!

How I made my card:
1. I first picked out some nice design paper.
2. Then I cut out a square on white card stock. Here I used my sunshine stencil and blended it with a
distress ink on a white square. I put some sequins in it, pasted a piece of accetate in front of it and
stuck it on my card.
3. I found the white square frame a bit boring, so I also edited that with some blue distress ink.
Then I stamped and colored my balloons, cut them out and stuck them on the card. Along with some
small white clouds.
4. And finally, with I used a small stamp to stamp the text “Have A Fabulous Birthday” on the top edge of
the frame.

Beautiful, all those shades of purple in this paperpad. And those hydrangeas really make me long for the summer, when we can sit in our garden again!

This 6 x 6 design paper pad (Craftsensations), is in my stash for… uhm, wel for a long time! So when I saw the sketch challenge at Creative Sketchy Girls, I immediately know what to do with it! The butterfly comes from a die-cut I have bought recently from a Ali-shop.

Anything Goes Challenges

I love all those whimsical Fairy Stamps. They come in all sizes and brands and you see so many different techniques where these stamps are good for. So I could not wait to start a card with one of the stamps.

I have spend a whole saterday evening and sunday crafting! I first have to choose some nice cardstock and design papers. Than I have to trie the stamping technique and then I have to choose which stamp I should use. Then I have die cutted the circles for the card and stamped all the flowers. Colored them in and place them on my card. I say: succeed! What do you think?

With this card, I would like to play in the following challenges:
