Sparkling Dasher

Hi everyone,

The Holidays are just around the corner! We are trying to get ready… This is a card we made at my christmas class.  A lot of masking and sponging, but I love how this turns a white piece of cardstock into a nice background! Dasher (I love this stamp from Stampin’up!) has been embossed with silver embossing powder and I added some bling with the glitter sheet and rhinestones. It is always such a pitty that I am not a great photographer as this is really a stunning card in real life!

Dad’s shirt

Hi stampers,

This is one of the cards we will be making at our next stamping class. This cute little shirt opens up just beneath the collar, but unfortunately I forgot to make a picture of that. I love making these bit “unusual” cards, as they  get  the woow out of people… For this card you need approximately one sheet of DSP and some ribbon, tissue or buttons for the decoration (I used ribbon on anthor of these cards to create a tie). And it fits in a regular envelope :).

So hope you like it! See ya next week…

LAST RUN TILL CHRISTMAS : Recessed window – Christmas lodge

Hi everyone,

Oh yes, December has started! Its time to do some holiday shopping. Normally, I am starting my holiday shopping in July or August. I hate to run through stores to search for the best Christmas gift, so I start collecting the Christmas presents months in advance and I don’t have to worry about anything anymore at the end. But this year with the move and all, I am not ready at all! Luckily, my Christmas cards are ready since quiet some time, so I don’t have to worry about those. Today I share with you one of the cards I used for a Christmas class. Several stamps from the Christmas lodge stamps set are used on this card (in and out). As you can see, I made a little recessed window in which I glued a piece of very vanilla card stock stamped with the lodge. I added some stickles to the roof to give it a nice snowy look, but that’s almost impossible to visualize on photo. You should come along and have a look at it yourself to see the lovely texture! I left the borders of my window plain, but decorated the inside a bit more.

Hope you like it!

Starwars DVD holder

Hi everyone!

Today I am here to share a new project I made. We have tons of movie DVDs all stacked in 3 DVD holders (I think some of you might understand what I mean). A space economic way of storing BUT so annoying when you want to find 1 specific movie. So I decided to make DVD holders for them which can be put on a shelf. The first one I made is for the six starwars movies.

 

My project is based on different tutorials. The first one is from Tara Kieninger at Fireflies and Flutterbyes. She shows us how to make a pocket card CD holder. The second part comes from Creativity prompt where you will find a tutorial on how to make an accordion mini album. Finally, I adapted the measurements to fit the 6 DVDs, adapted the tutorials to use the cardstock effciently, and added a cardstock binder and a “belt” to hold it closed. The beautiful yoda drawing comes from dantew92 and I colored him in with my copic markers. I am working on the whole finished tutorial and will be posting it here later.

Hope you like it!

See ya later…

Bubble background

Dear friends,

I am very late this week to post my card. There is a lot going on in our lives for the moment, everything gets turned upside down. I hardly find time to spend here in blogland and I miss it a lot. I will give you more info about what’s happening all around us soon, but meanwhile, here is my card. It is a card I used for the “household” class. It’s a class where I show my clients different ways to use every day products to make gorgeous cards. This one uses the bubble technique. I used liquid soap, water and a couple of re’inker drops to create this bubbled background. The punched border is made using the four petal flower from the punch pack SU punches.

Hope you like it! Have a great day,

Card organization box

Hi everyone,

Today I share with you one of the projects I used for my summer classes. It is a card organization box. There are four tabs (for my box, but you can make more!) which enable you to divide your cards by category (as I do: B-day, Thank you’s, …) or by urgency (to be posted this week, next month,…) or whatever sorting system you have. It is still possible to make this box at one of summer my classes. Just shoot me an email if you want to be part of it!

Hope you liked it! See ya…

KIDS class: Teacher gift

Hi everyone,

Today I will share with you the project we made at my last KIDS class. The children were between 7 and 9 and it was great! We made a teacher gift for the end of the schoolyear. As you can see in the picture, the top panel includes a noteblock, pencil and tearable calendar and the bottom panel is a pinboard. I really enjoyed this class and I think the kids did too. They were free to chose their own colors and even the shapes of the pin decorations were altered according to their imagination. Hope their teachers will appreciate the effort they all put in making these…

Hope you like it too! Don’t forget to subscribe your children for the next KIDS class on July 8th!

Cheers,

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!

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…
