Club Scrap digital and coloring

Ok, so on Friday March 24 the Club Scrap 
Artist Team has a blog hop about what 
you can do with the digital Delft kit.
Now I have so many ideas, that it is too much for
one blog post, so here I go with 3 days of ideas.

I am not very good at only digital projects, so I use this kit
for printing out images or sentiments and will use them
to make real paper projects. Today I have two cards.

This flower is in the kit and as you see I copied and
pasted it many times. Now I can make cards.

On the Yellow paper I colored the flowers
white and green leaves with pencil.
For the finished card I glued these metal hearts
inside the flower, printed a sentiment and 2 extra
sticky gemstones.

Here is card #2, total different colors.
Here i colored the flowers orange and purple
and also added these metal hearts.

For the background of the card I used this wonderful
tile stencil and colored orange paper with purple oxide ink.

Now I used the real stamp on top of the
colored panel and colored the flowers with 
a white pencil. The sentiment is also stamped
with real rubber!
And coloring is soooo much more fun, when you
can share it with your grandson!
For him I printed the scene with the houses and the windmill
and he made it into a wonderfulcolored drawing.

Yes, my card is also for day 22 of 
The Daily Marker color challenge.

Thank you for looking
and I hope you come by tomorrow
to see what I came up with.
Creative greetings,

Distress oxide and tulips

Today I am enjoying Spring inside my craftroom.
Outside it is windy and lots of rain, so these 
tulips from Art Neko make my room look like Spring!

For each card I used just one color of the new
Ranger's distress oxide ink. So first I stamped the tulip
on cardstock and next I stamped it again on a post it
note and cut this image out.

I covered the tulip on the card with the post-it note.

Next I took a oriental text stamp from Art neko
and stampd it on top of the tulip to get a background
of characters.
When the post it note is removed it looks like
you stamp the tulip on top of the text.
Then layering the card on a matching color as the 
ink and a dark green background.
The gemstones on each card are colored with 
a distress marker in the same color as the ink of the inkpad.

These cards are for day 21 of the color challenge on

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

Spring is nearly here, but outside it is windy and rain.
Hopefully the sun comes out soon to make it
more agreable and cheerful. Let's start this Spring
with a cup of coffee!

Yes, there is another Coffee Blog Hop
and of course I play. This one is just
made  to practice :-)

For my card I used the digital freebie from
hat you can find here.

I colored the cup with markers and on top of
the cup I used a Tim Holtz dotted stencil for
decoration. Foir the flowers I colored an extra one,
that I cut out and added to with foam tape
to the right flower to give it extra dimention.
The flowers are then covered with silver glitter glue.
The steam is made with a white gel pen.
I left out the butterfly, for I haven't seen those
around in Spring. Keep it for the Summer hop!
Behind the cup you see an old fashioned
doily cut in half.

The dark green back panel is embossed with a dotty
folder to match up with the dots on the cup.
The digital sentiment is by Create with TLC
and cut out with a punch, that has the matching
punch with the scallops.

Of course my card is colored for day 20 of
 The Daily Marker color challenge.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

I colored the images with aquarel pencils.
Some decorations with washi tape
finished the card.

Thank you for looking

Saturday sketch card: dragonfly

Here is my card for the
Of course there is a little coloring for
The Daily Marker color challange day 18.

Here you find all the details about the sketch challenge.

So for my card I used Michael Strong's dragonfly
rubber stamp. I embossed the stamp with black embossing powder
and then i took out some distress markers for coloring.

When I finished the coloring, I took out the matching
metallic die to cut out the dragonfly.

For the background I used a stencil and a little
peeled paint oxide distress ink.

This is the stencil I have used.

This time I also decorated the envelop.
I used a multi colored inkpad.

And as this dragonfly set also has a little stamp,
I used tose to give a little surprise to the inside of the card
with the same multicolored inkpad.

The sentiment is a digital stamp from 
Create with TLC. The card is finished
with a few sequins.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

Spring is around the corner

Before I shared some tulips with your,
today it is irises. This beautiful stamp is by
Art Neko and you find it here.
It is a wonderful stamp, that only needs a little
I coloured the flowers with aquarel pencils.
The background is wonderful paper called a 
thousand wishes paper and is in different colors and
designs and can be found here.
To give the card some extra bling there are a few
silvery sequins added.

Here an other idea with this beautiful iris card.
You see that on this card, there is also not much coloring,
the stamp is just wonderful by itself.
For this card I only added some blue distress stickels.
This needs some time to dry.
Here a close up of the glitter glue.
The finished card also has a piece of the wonderful paper
amd a ribbon and some gemstones.

The same stamp and two variations.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!
