Today I like to show some cards I made with a stamp by Technique Tuesday. With Valentine's coming up it is good to have some cards with hearts on hand.

On the first one I heat embossed the heart image in white. It is from a small stampset with the name: "Heartfelt Thanks". (HFelt) Made it wet with water and added Distress Inks.

On the second card I did almost the same. Added far more water and added only one color Distress Ink. The little word Sending is from a Hero Arts stampset. (CL272) The "Hugs" die is from Simon Says Stamp. (SSS D111545)
The little hearts are SSS too.

Hope you liked your visit here!

Sunday Afternoon

As often on Sunday afternoons I was playing with paper, creating, coloring, stamping and cutting.
This time with someone in my thoughts who has her birthday this week. Here is the result.

First I stamped the Rose of Sharon with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink. By Impression Obsession (G16182). Than I stamped the Rose of Sharon Reverse in Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. (G16181). Cut it and stamped some leaves from an Altenew stampset with the name:"Beautiful Day". Cut them and glued them behind the flower. Added a strip of Vellum with the sentiment. It is by Papertrey Ink: item #2473, Think Big favorites #12. Nothing special on this , but just fun to make.

Something New

Happy new year to all who read this!

At the beginning of this new year I made some cards with a new to me stamp I recently bought in a craft store in Rotterdam. And since there's a challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge with the theme:"Something New", I plannend to join in this challenge. The design team used Hero Arts stamps and I did so too.

On the first card I used the new to me stampset by Marianne Design. (KJ1709) And than for the images I used a Hero Arts stampset:"Whats perking".(CL416) I used this stampset so often and still Love it! Colored it with Copic Markers.

The second card is made with the same stampsets. But used also the paper piecing technique on this card.

On the third card I used the same stampset for the sentiment but for the image used a little stampset by PapertreyInk. ( Heart to heart #1 item #2475.

Merry Christmas

With this blogpost I wish you a Merry Christmas! Hope you have a wonderful time with friends and family! Here you find a photo of my Nativity Scene.

The stable was made by my father. A good memory. He always liked to make things with his hands. The wooden animals are bought in a store with toys. And so are the angel, sheep, donkey and shepherd of felt. They can be bought at "Dille en Kamille". The wooden figures are made by me. And here is a card.

Wishing you all the warmth of loved ones! Thank you for visiting here!

Beautiful Bouquets

It is a while ago since I posted here. But today I like to share two cards I made for Church with a stampset by "WPlus9".

This Dahlia bouquet is stamped with Memento black ink and colored with Copic Markers.

This is the same Dahlia bouquet but now stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with WoW embossingpowder in gold on watercolor paper. Then colored with Distress Ink. The oval shape was made using oval dies by Hero Arts. They come in a lot of different sizes and they work great!
