It looks like my inspiration is back. I was reading in my favorite magazine. The Do Craft Creativity 

I saw this sketch



And this card.


They inspired me to make a set of 8 christmascards. 


Using wooden embellisments


Glitters


And the colours red, Olive (green) and white (cream) so my cards fit in with the challenge from Just Us Girls



 I made also co├Ârdinating  envelope's  So my cards (and envelope's) also fitts in with the challenge from CAS-ual Fridays


Hope you like them. 

Wishing you all a Blessed Christmas. Celebrating the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. Beeing together with friends and family.

Another year

Het is even rustig op mijn blog, heb even helemaal geen inspiratie. Normaal loop ik over van de inspiratie maar nu .............
Zal wel komen door alle drukte met de voorbereidingen voor sinterklaas (er moesten natuurlijk ook nog de nodige surprise's gemaakt worden en gedichten) en kerst.

Heb nog wel onderstaand kaartje gemaakt voor de leidinggevende van de tussen schoolse opvang waar ik twee dagen in de week overblijfmoeder ben.


Samen met dit schattige biggetje gevuld met biggen van Katja. Met de strik een echt feest varken.


Ik wens jullie een goed week-end en hopelijk komt mijn inspiratie snel terug.

Birthdaymonster

Made this birthdaycard for my little brother. I know he became 33 monday and he is 2 meter. So I alway's have to look up to him but because I'm the oldest (just 1 year older) he still is my little brother.


I coloured with some very cheap alcohol markers 8 for 1 euro. Only the green is a copicmarker, the only one I have. I stamped my own background and coloured it on the dot upon the I in Birthday i placed a rinstone


The monsterstamp is a digi and came from Bugaboostamps.

Thanks for your visit!
Wishing you a great day.

En dit zijn dan de lift vogeltjes. Hihi, met andere woorden dit is mijn gelifte kaart.


Sorry Margot, ik kon het gewoon niet laten om je na te apen.

Four legged friend

Made this christmascard inspired by the challenge from

surprise

Gisteren kwam de postbode zoals elke dag de post brengen. En daar zat een hele leuke verrassing tussen. Gestuurd door Irma van Allemaal Kleurtjes.

Een tijdje terug heb ik een art-journaling swap met haar gedaan en ze had zulke leuke sigarenbandjes gebruikt.

Dit mapje zat in de envelop

 
en in dat mapje een heleboel van deze supergave sigarenbandjes


Kijk is hoe mooi!


Ik heb samen met mijn vriendin en mijn zoontje van 7 zitten kijken en kwijlen ;) naar al dat moois. Mijn jongens lopen nu te "bedelen" of ze er alsjeblieft een paar mogen om er medailles van te maken. Er zaten ook een paar bandjes tussen met een soort van stadswapens enzo.

Irma dank je wel ik ben er heel erg blij mee enne mijn jongens ook.

Postcard 2

I had to split up my post  because inlinkz don't accept two times the same URL.

So yesterday my friend came over to my house so we could craft together. Crafting is fun but when you craft with a friend it is double fun.

We decided to play along with the challenge and Swap from City Crafter Challenge Blog 
and the challenge from Vintage Cafe Card Challenge 

So we made a postcard in vintage style with poststamps at the back.

For the card from my friend Alida see here.

This is the front of my card.


This is the back of my card.

Both cards (again ;) )


Thanks for your time to take a look at my blog.

Art journaling.

Een tijdje terug had ik al verteld dat ik soort van journaling swap deed met Irama van Allemaal kleurtjes .

Toen kon ik mijn journaling nog niet helemaal laten zien. Wel nu wel want ik heb ondertussen de journaling van Irma ontvangen en zij die van mij.


Deze heb ik dus van Irma ontvangen. En kijk is naar die sigarenbandjes die zijn zoho mooi!.



En dit is de journalig die ik naar Irma heb gestuurd.


Als je goed kijkt dan zie je dat de bolletjes aan het strikje van het groene meisje zijn voorzien van fluweel. Oftewel ik heb de bolletjes eerst voorzien van een liquid pearle en die bestrooid met fluweelpoeder. (gekocht bij de Pipoos 6 potjes voor 5 en halve euro) En ze voelen echt zacht heel erg leuk.


There is some magic in the air

City Crafter Challenge Blog is challenging us to make a magic box.

I know mine is not a spectacular looking box.
But this is the outside, the magic is inside, when you lift the lid.............


There is an explosion of butterfly's fluttering out of the box.


 Isn't it magic? Look at all those butterfly's.


It is not so good to see on the photo's but i used stickles on the wings. In the evening light the are realy magical.

Thanks for comming by. Hope you've enjoyed.

Birthday wishes and some green cards

This first card was made for the challenge from CAS-ual Fridays The want you to add some colour on your  one layer cas-card. I've coloured with my Derwent coloursoft pencils.
This card is also for the challenge from Clean and Simple.


This two green cards are made a couple day's ago but i didnt had the time to post them earlyer. I realy love this way of making cards.


Cards like these are easy to make, fun, quick and the result is always great. And it is also a cheap way of card making. Unless you are like me, always wanted the newest stamps and inks.
The perfect cardmaking for they that don't have so much time. And for they that love to play with stamps, like me ;)


Thanks for your visit hope you've enjoyed it.

telefoonhoesje

Van de week had ik besloten dat mijn telefoon toch echt wel een beschermhoesje nodig heeft. Ik gooi mijn telefoon altijd maar zo in mijn tas tussen de sleutels, portomenee en andere dingen die in een tas horen. Maar ja gezien die van mij een touchscreen heeft is dat niet zo goed voor mijn telefoon. Dus heb ik mijn naaimachine maar weer is stofvrij gemaakt.
Ik heb een lapje Tildastof gebruikt en de ruitjesvoering is een stofje van de Hema. Die hebben nu zulk leuk freubelmateriaal. o.a. dus van die leuke stofjes voor maar 1,95 en dan heb je 8 lapjes van A4 formaat.

Dan nog een roze kantje gebruikt en dat knoopje vond ik wel erg toepasselijk.


Tja ik heb dus al mijn vrienden in mijn telefoon staan.

Ik wens iedereen een goed week-end. Geniet lekker van het mooie weer, ik kruip achter de naamachine want dochterlief wil nu ook wel zo'n mooi beschermhoesje voor haar telefoon. Met rode roosjes. Wel ik ga ff rommelen in mijn lapjesmand.

Love you xxx

I made this two cards this morning. They are for the challenge from Less is more, they want to see hearts.

First I thought that i diddnt had some heart stamps so for the firstcard I made my own stamps with foam. I also made my own glitter embossingpowder. It is not so good to see on the photo but I embossed the darkest heart with glitterembossingpowder.

Want to make your own glitter embossingpowder? Take a look over here for a tutorial.


Later I found this litlle stamp with little hearts so I dicided to make a little card with it.
It messure's 4 by 4 inch.
I coloured with my Derwent pencils. And embossed the little hearts with clear embossingpowder. The little dots are with stickles.


Thanks for visiting my blog.

For I know.......

Made this card yesterday for the following challenge's

Clean & Simple (sketch)
