Place to Start July 2020 Challenge: Flowers!

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

This month the prompt is: Flowers!

So, here is my flower card for you!

Nothing makes me happier than beautiful colored cardstock and designpapers ofcourse!

I have used some goodies from my stash: green and pink papicolor cardstock, design papers from a Marianne Design paperpad (very old), some stamps and some bling bling.

This is how I have made my card:
1. I first cut the cards and the papers;
2. I stamped the flowers twice on patterned paper from the same paperpad (on a green design and on a pink design piece of paper);
3. I cut out the green flowers (for the leaves) and the pink flower stamped images;.
4. I glued down the green leaves first and than I glued the pink flowers on top (with a little foampad);
5. I stamped all the text. It means; A specially for you
6. I glued everything together 🙂

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.

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.

All Fun Challenges #6 – Dug with egg – Morgan’s Art World

It is time again for challenge #6 at All Fun Challenge blog! Our challenge is always “anything goes” and this week is our sponsor Morgan’s Art World!

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.

Place to Start April, 2020 Challenge: Spring / Easter with a ribbon or bow

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.

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!!!

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
Stamping Sensations –  Spring Florals
The Corrosive Challenges –  Always Anything Goes

A Crazy Ferris Wheel

Actually, I am someone who looks in November already, all the plants out of the ground. I don’t like rain, cold, or wetness at all! Okay, Christmas is fun, but I prefer to skip the autumn and winter months. But this year I prefer to skip the coming months. I wish we were six months later in the year! I think that’s why I participate in this Christmas card challenge!

Don’t they look carefree from these snowmen in the Ferris wheel?

Take good care of yourself! Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope to see you again soon! Bye,

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