I was excited to work with the “Dug with Egg” stamp!

Here is what I have created:

Details about my card:
I used my acryllic paint markers this time to color my image! Then I distressed the edges of the stamped images with some blue and brown ink. I stamped my flowers with a stamp I have in my stash and colored them in with 3d pearl paint. I gave them also a little orange drup of pearl paint in the sterns of the little flowers. I add some little details with a white gelli roll pen.

The whole card looks bright and happy because of the bright colors of paint I have used.

I love the color combinations of the yellow, orange, green and soft blue’s together.

A month ago: it seems like an eternity! And what can happen in a month ?! Unimaginable. Anyway … it’s April and almost Easter. Anyway … Easter; let’s just pretend it’s going to be a happy easter!

It’s time for a challenge on the Place to Start challenge blog. Just tinkering and with the super fun digi stamps from Scrappers Delight, it should really work!

It is my honor to work with one of the stamps from the bundle “Fruit Babies“! And this has become my card:

Details about my card:
I cut a card in the shape of an Easter egg 🙂 And I typed out, printed and cut out the funny text “you are egg-stra special”. I cut some leftover cardstock grass and Easter eggs. I distressed the big egg, the words the grass and all the little eggs. At last, I pasted everything on my card.

Hello my crafty friends! It’s time again, for an other challenge over at The Creative Knockouts!

About the sponsor:
This challenge is sponsored by: Crafty Sentiments
Along with images provided to the design team, they have also offered up a prize, you can win: 3 images to one lucky crafter!

Here is my card, I choose the image called Little Friends

I had so much fun making this card! I chose a “diagonal double pocket card”. I copied the pattern from a tutorial on the website of Splitcoast Stampers.

Some details about my card:
As always, I used design paper from Craft Sensations out of my huge stock 🙂 I liked the idea of ​​putting the tags in it too. I colored the digital stamp and cut out all the pieces and critters and processed them on my card and two of the tags. As you can see I put a piece of ribbon through the tags. I did not have the green ribbon in stock, but I colored a piece of white ribbon with the same color alcohol marker as I used in the stamp. And that, my dear friends, is another tip I’ve seen from Gina K!

I wrote the text on one of the tags by hand and with a brush marker.

Hello you out there somewhere! How are you doing today? Are you ready for a new challenge at Aud Sentiments Challenge blog? Well, I am!

Our sponsor is: Crafty Sentiment Designs I have used one of the sponsor images: Henry for my card.

Isn’t Henry a handsome fellow?

One of my old boy friends was also called Henry. Yeah, those were the good old times! Anyway.

Details about my card:
For the sentiment, I have used some letter stickers. I hope you haven’t heard me curse, because it was not easy to get them pasted in a straight line 🙂 I colored “Henry” in the colors that were in my design paper. I cut him out and past hem right on the edge of my card. I took some little butterfly stamps and stamped them on the card. The text “van harte gefeliciteerd” is dutch for “Happy Birthday”. I cut a strip on the side of my card. I pasted the design paper on the inside of the card.

All Fun Challenges #5- Spring Elephant

It is time again for challenge #5 at All Fun Challenge blog! This week, “there is something new in the air” ….. oh la la! It’s spring! Our challenge is always “anything goes” but this week with a twist: “everything spring”.

And to celebrate “Spring”, we have 2 sponsors today at All Fun. That means also you can fabulous prices on entering challenge #5 at All Fun! We welcome: Bugaboo stamps, who offers a $12.00 gift code  to the winner of the challenge which is approx 4 digital images!

We also welcome Twistoon who offers a price of $10 and another of $5!

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!

Entered in the following challenges:
Dragonfly Dreams – Feminine
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends –  Always Anything Goes

Aud Sentiments Challenge #247-Spring / Easter Sentiment – Polkadoodles

First of all, lots of people around the world, are affected by the current health situation. Many of you might be having a difficult time! That is why I like to reach out with positive thoughts and encouragement, and I hope that the community of crafters and artists can be an encouragement in this weird time. Making and sharing crafts and art can be a comforting and helpful a way to refocus our thoughts!

Well, lets go to a new challenge now. I am so honoured to be a new design team member for Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog! Thank you so much for the opportunity. Here is my very first design team card.

Our sponsor is: Polkadoodles and I have used one of the sponsor images: Tulip Darling for my card.

This is my card using the image called Tulip Darling.

“Isn’t she lovely?!” Oh yes, that was what came to my mind,when I first saw this beautiful digistamp. The illustration looks very detailled, but I can asure you that it is very easy to color!

Details about my card:
I used a design paper from my paper stash. It is many years old, I can tell. I thought the spring design will match the theme and the fairy as well. Of course I have to use a sentiment. I did not found any sentiments in my stash that I had in mind (can you believe that? No of course not 😉 ) so I search on the web , found a nice sentiment that fullfilled my needs and printed it also out on a somewhat heavier cardstock. I also printed the image of the fairy out twice and made a kind of a 3D effect with the tullips.

And it really isn’t any more! But that is not necessary. The The Darling Buds Tulip of Polkadoodles is beautiful enough!

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

Wishing you all the best and hope to see you next time again! Good luck with challenge #247 at

All Fun Challenges #4-Fabrika Fantasy

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!

This week, our sponsor is: Fabrika Fantasy. Fabrika Fantasy writes and illustrates stories in the genre of fantasy adventure and children’s books. They offer illustration services for authors as well as images for crafters and designers. Awesome coloringpages and digistamps are available as instant downloads in their online store. I invite you to take a tour through their awesome website! After you joined the wonderful challenges at All Fun Challenge Blog of course, because this weeks prices are sponsered by this faboulus sponsor!

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.

Entered in the following challenges:
Angie’s Digital Stamps – #40 Anything Goes Not twist
CD Sunday Plus Challenge – #30 Anything goes
Dare 2b Artzy – March Challenge
