Masculine birthday card

Hi everyone,

I had to make a quick masculine birthday card. Although I was afraid it would take me hours, the design and color assembly went very quick. I even used some DSP, something I tend to have difficulties with! First thing my boyfriend told me when I was finished was: “Hey this is a very nice masculine Bday card!”. So  I think my goals are achieved! 😀 But look for yourself and tell me how you like it!

See ya next week!

Simple and stepped up Xmas card

Hi everyone,

I am a bit late with my card this week, I know, but here is the reason: I have very little time lately and I realy wanted to play along with the merry monday challenge since quiet some time now. This weekend (long 3day weekend 🙂 ), I was in a Xmas kind of mood. How that is possible when it is 28°C instead of -20°C, I don’t know, but I was… I made a card using the merry monday challenge and this weeks dynamic duo, made my pics but had no time to post it. And while it was laying the past two days, I thought something was missing, it was too simple. So I decided to MAKE time and try to step up my card. I just finished it, made my pics, and here they are: first of all the simple one, and after that my stepped up version (which I enter for the challenges). Hope you like it!

Simple version:

Stepped up version: Several base layers, added smootch spritz to the background (although difficult to see on the picture), made my own coordinating buttons using copics, added some stitching and the sentiment is popped up twice.

And of course the inside:

I am sorry for the quality of the pictures, it is dark outside already and have no good light… :s

See ya later…




Following your footsteps

Hi bloggies,

Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Today a card I made for my best friend a while ago. I used masking to create the little footsteps along the road. I think it gives a nice look, hope you like it too…

A little thought for mom

Hi blog friends,

Today I share with you one of the cards we made at my latest card class. The design isn’t mine, but unfortunately I can’t find the original post anymore. So if the design is yours, please tell me and I will reference your work as it should. For the background, we used versamark to add a subtile tone on tone motif. The flower is made using the oval cutting system from creative memories, a stampin’up button, a stampin marker (tempting turquoise) and a sponge dauber (daffodil delight). The cardstock and border punch are stampin’up. After decorating the inside of the card, I also made a matching envelope using some of the designer paper I had left in my drawers. Hope you like it!

See ya!

Imaginary tree of life…

Hi everyone,

Tonight a card I made for the paper players. I know, I don’t play along that often anymore, but life is a bit hard to follow lately. I always have the impression I am running for nothing because my deadlines are coming closer everyday. But enough about my everyday life, lets talk crafting. I used this weeks ColorQ color combo combined with the sketch from the paper players. Using my copic markers I gave the image the exact same colors as the papers and cardstock I used. I just love these markers! Whatever brand of cardstock or paper you use, you can always find a color match, just great!! The stamps are from Polka doodles and Artemio.

I promise to give you some pics of the cards we made at my stamping class last Sunday… Just stay tuned 🙂 .

Good night,


Frozen Window

Hi everyone,

Today a card I made with a new stamp set I bought in Europe. Aren’t these little guys adorable? When I made this card, it was very cold up here in Canada and I wanted to make a card which shows how I feel. I used Copic markers for coloring. Except for my choice of stamps, I tried to give it a colder look by using the frozen window technique. Unfortunately, it isn’t very clear in the picture…

See ya!

Baby boy – Iris fold inspiration 2

Hi crafter friends,

I promised you a while back that I would share my second buggy card. This time I also made a picture of the inside… I love decorating the inside and the envelope, so that everything coordinates well together.

Tell me how you like it….

See ya later!

Happy Easter!

Hi everyone and Happy Easter!

Today I share with you a card I made for my best customer. I used this weeks Play date cafe color combo which was Avocado…Blue Mist…Grey Wool. So I used Bashful blue, olive green and basic grey from stampin’up. I also made a little treat wrapping with a chocolate Rocher in it. The punched border was made using the 4-petal flower from the itty bitty bits collection, a little trick I saw on pinterest… Hope she will like it!

See ya later…

A flower for you

Hi bloggies,

Today a card which reminds me of spring. Not really the time yet, but I like to think of spring. The flowers coming out even after a harsh winter… Yeah, I know I am dreaming. Winter isn’t over yet… Don’t get me wrong, I love winter! It is just that the sunlight reflected on the snow gives me a warm feeling… But enough talking! Here it is and I hope you like it…

Until next time …

Tea for two – March 3D class

Hi everyone,

Today I share with you the project we made yesterday at my 3D class. The tea holder is based on a tutorial of Andrea Walford which I adapted so it could easily be refilled. We used the tea shoppe stamp set from Stampin’up. This project is a nice gift idea or could just be nice to have next to the coffee pot in your cupboard. I must admit everyone loved making these. Of course, we made a coordinating card to go with it and I made a little pyramid box with a treat inside for everyone of the participants. Hope you like it!

See ya…
