Soft butterflies

Hi bloggies,

Hope you had a wonderful weekend. I have a very quick post for you today.While looking out for a nice sketch yesterday eve, I surfed along the stamping411 blog and saw this butterfly sketch. So, I inked up some SU stamps I added to my collection last month.  Turned out as a CAS card with quiet soft colors (was in need of some rest, guess it reflects on my stamping inspiration…). Hope you like it…



Cloisonne butterfly

Hi stampers,

I am sharing a technique card today.  I mixed the sketch challenge from JUGS and the case study challenge for this one. The butterfly is made using the “ink cloisonne” technique (Don’t know how it is called exactly and I couldn’t find it on the internet, so “ink cloisonne” is the name I gave it. If anyone recognizes the technique and knows the exact name, please leave me a comment!). I used some distress ink (broken china and barn door) from Ranger for the coloring and an iron wire to make the antennas. The stamps are from Martha stewart and Stampin’up. Hope you like it.



In the air, thinking of you

Hi stampers,

I’ve been busy stamping this week, don’t you think? Today another card combining two challenges: the card patterns sketch and colorQ color combo. I must admit I didn’t have the exact colors, so I digged into my old stack of papers, and found some treasures… I used the “Up, up and away” and “so happy for you” stamp sets from stampin’up. Don’t know if you’ve see it, but I didn’t put any faux stitching on this one! I tried to force myself to leave the stitches out. Was hard, I must say, but I almost succeeded… You can’t see it, but I’ve put some on the inside, just couldn’t resist… So here you have it, looks much better in real life, but hope you like it!

Good night!

CAS butterflies

Hi everyone,

Today my entry for the paper players. I just love playing along with their weekly challenges, they are so full of inspiration! I combined the paper players sketch with this week’s inkspiration color combo. I didn’t have any cherry cobler left as I am making a lot of christams cards lately, so I decided to replace the cherry cobler with riding hood red. I must say I love this color combination! So, here it is:

Tell me how you like it! I always love your sweet comments…

Rainbow girl

Hi everyone,

When I saw the colorQ challenge this week, I was not inspired to make a halloween card (however the colors fitted), I thus decided to make a card for a very nice woman. With her enthusiastic being she puts color in a lot of hearts. That’s why I wanted to make her a card which reflected how she made us feel, full of color… Hope she’s gonna like it! I’ll also put this one in for the freshly made sketches as I used this weeks sketch to make this layout… Tell me how you like it!

Pinwheel Card

Hi everyone,

No challenge this time, just a quick card I wanted to try for some time. Didn’t really get the look I had in mind, but I like it as it is! Hope you enjoy it too…

Good night! (time to get to bed now…;)


Think pink

Hi everyone,

Today a very quick post. The card I share today is a card I made this week for a 50th birthday. It took me quiet some thinking before my fingers wanted to make this one, but I finally managed to get it done. Getting the letters in a nice circle resulted in a lot of frustration, I can tell you I was happy when those finally got stamped!!! The central scalloped circle and numbers were made using my cricut. Hope you like it!


See ya later…

Autumn leaves…

Hi everyone,

Can you believe it, I am in time to play with the paper players this week 😀 ! My headache was drifting away yesterday, so I thought “IT’S TIME TO GET CRAFTY!”. I love the color combo Jaydee proposed this week at the paper players. I added a little touch of blue, I thought it would lighten up the autumn colors. Hope you like this one… and be sure to play along at the paper players this week, I would be delighted to see your creations!

Before I forget, I also wanted to thank everyone for the kind comments I got lately! Have a nice day…


Christmas Carol

Hi everyone,

I am back to play along with the paper players this week. Ever since LeAnne’s music challenge was posted, I knew I wanted to make a Christmas card with my stampin’up music notes stamp. However, didn’t have that much time this week. That’s why yesterday, despite my terrible headache, I decided to sit at my desk and try to make something. This is what I came up with,the picture isn’t great, I know. I made my photo in a hurry this morning before getting to work… :s  Anyway, hope you like it!

More babies…

Hi everyone,

As I told you yesterday, it’s baby time… This is the second baby-card I made this week. I am putting it up for the Stampin’ royalty challenge which is all about simplicity. I don’t use a lot of embossing normally, as I have no embossing machine or something, so I have to dry emboss it myself. But I think this one looks nice…
