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.

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.

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:

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.
