Saturday card: Time

Today a more masculine card.

It comes with female heads,but this
time I changed it into a man's card.

I stamped the large image on kraft paper
and embossed it with copper colored embossing powder.
The watch is a stamp from my stash
and that is embossed with black on silver paper.

The sentiment I made up with a SU! sentiment
and one from my stash. The banner is punched out.

On the left I covered the female head with a circle
that comes with the new Nonagon stamp and on the
right it is part of the circle stamp from a set that
is not available anymore. Now that I  looked at the
catalogue you can also use the cloisonné medaillions.

U want to enter my card for the
Theme: use the word art or anything goes
Last time I was top 3,
so thank you for my badge:



Thanks for looking.

Have a creative day!

Tim Holtz 12 tags May 2016:Crazy Cat

Here is my version of the tag for the
12 tags of 2016
for May.

If you want to see all the techniques
that were used please go to Tim's blog here.

For this month I wanted to use my crazy cat stamp
and it worked out perfectly for this tag. I even found
a little ribbon in my stash with cat paws.

The butterfly is cut out of metaland stamped
with it's matching stamp.

To make the tag more dimentional I used the rosette
die,for i do not have the tattered rose.
The labelis stamped with a sentiment from 
an old SU! set with the same name.

The flowers are punched out of  decorated kraft paper
and fastened with a brad. This was a fun tag to create.

Thank you for looking.

Have a creative day!

Club Scrap Creative License Blog Hop


Welcome to the 
showing of the May Creative License kit.

I hope you came over here from
and enjoyed seeing what she had 
come upwith to inspire you.

I absolutely love this masculine kit
(but I love every kit when it comes :-)

So what did I come up with this time:
a scrap page and a picture frame.
Here is my scrappage with my adorable grandchildren,who
are riding their toy car for the first time. I used one of the 
ALSB pages. You find those instruction on the
 Club Scrap website site here.
Here some details:
the wonderful key that came with the embellishments
of this kit.I love the word dream on it. Yes,
those boys still have to dream about their own car.

And then a look at the rubber stamps:
The Jumbo stamp sheet comes with this wonderful
license plate stamp and a complete alphabet, so you
can make up your own words on the plate.
My next project is this picture frame. I made this wonderful
picture of my DH and the boys, you might have seen it on 
facebook, and it just needed a special frame.
I had this frame for a long time and it had the perfect size for this 
picture,but not the right border, so it was time to 
do a make over.
I started with cutting a piece of grey paper in the right size
6 x 6 inch on the outside and 3,5 x 3,5 inch on the inside.

Then part of the frame was embossed with 
the gears embossing folder

and the other part  with the rivit metalembossing folder.

Then I painted it randomly with black acrylic paint.

Next a layer of broken china acrylic paint

and finally a layer of golden paint.
Now it is time to let it all dry (I used a heat gun).

To complete it all I brushed the raised part with a
gold metallic ink pad.
The 3 keys are embossed with silver to give
it its metal look and the key to my heart is also a stamp
that you fnd on the Art Nouveau rubber stamps.

The cards are printed from the digital Creative License
images.Cut out twise to give it more body and to
have a layer of glossy accent on top.

The amazing image is a cut out that came with 
the scrap kit.

Now for more inspiration please hop over to
Pam's Blog.
and see what she has in store for you.

Thank you for looking.

Have  a creative day!

Club Scrap Blog Hop tomorrow!

So tomorrow is our monthly 
Club Scrap Blog Hop 
showing of  the kit of of the month. 
This month the kit is called 
Creative License and is all about cars.

When i had finished my projects and posted themtomy blog,
I suddenly had another idea,but then my post
would become to long, so her a pre- blog
hop post sharing with you this fun idea I had
for handing out candy on a children's birthday.

It is Owen'sbirthday soon,so I need something!

The car that I used was from acoloring page:
I put the car to a piece of folded black paper and only used the
outline of the image. Then I cut a piece of blue (Owen's favourite
color) just a little smaller and glued it on top after
stamping the sentiment. The alphabet from the licence plate
rubber stamp sheet came in very handy. Just a great size!
You find the rubber sheets here.


You might see the wheel look quite real. This is one of the rubber 
stamps cut out with a circle punch.

Inside the bag there is candy that looks like all kinds of 
cars in all kinds of colors. Yummy!

Did i wet your appetite for more Creative License?
I hope to see you back tomorrow.

Have a creative day!

Sunday Scrap Page: Coffee




Happy Sunday!
Last week i shared a tea page with you,
now on the backside I made a similar page,
but this time a coffee page.

I used a combination of 
and Club Scrap stamps and papers. 
The teapot,could also be a coffee pot,right?!
So I stamped it on dotty kraftpaper and embossed
ot in gold. Cutting it out and taping it to this lovely
red paper with the golden coffee cups. This paper
is from the Club Scrap kit Coffee Break.
Here you have a look at the kit
with all it's papers.

For this middle part I printed
the text with a fun free font
called Black Coffee and you can'
downloaded here.

The top cup is from the Club Scrap
Coffee Break rubber stamps and the large
cup is from Michael Strong.
The coffee rings in the background are
 a vintage wooden stamp from Club Scrap.
Used my Facebook  profile picture for this page.

Here you see some of my coffee cups.
I have all kind of different ones. I like to
give each person her/his own cup.

This large cup was this years
Mother's Day gift from my daughter,
who knows my love for coffee.
It came with a wonderful ribbon  of with
I used a piece for decoration.

Thank you for looking

Saturday card: bookmark

Today I am sharing a card with another new stamp by

It is the "Cloisonné Nonagon" stamp set.
It comes with these two stamps.

This week I was inspired by one of the cards
of  Deborah, the Card Captain of this week
on our Yahoogroup. She showed a bookmark card.
So today I share with you my version.

I uised  a panelof kraft colored paper for this card
and stamped the nonagon stamp randomly with 
brown ink. With some holografic gold dot stickers
 I decorated the stamped images.

Then on ivory white paper (1,5 x 5 inch) I stamped
the image again and embossed it with copper
embossing powder. I made sure that the middle
part ( the circle) was centered on the
bookmark. On top I stamped the circle and embossed
it too. Below a sentiment was stamped inside the circle.

In the center of the circle I pnched a 
hole and added some embroidery thread
as decoration for the bookmark,
Also on the bookmark I added a few of the 
holographic gold stickers.

Here you see the finished card.
Before adding the kraft panel to the
card a few cuts were made to add the
bookmark to the card. Only after
that you add the panel to the card.

Great gift card for booklovers!
Have a creative day!
