Simon Says: Sprinkles and Splatters

Here is my card for the new challenge this week on the

I have started this week making my cards for
Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.
This holiday involves eating a piece of apple
dipped in honey. This way you wish one another
a very happy and sweet New Year.

The challenge this week is:
Sprinkles and Splatters.

So for the background I used some SU! paper with
bees on it and a honecomb die. The apples and jar are
stamps by Stampin'Up! The sentiment is by
Ruth Jewish Stamps (hebrew for a good year).

The splatter stamp in the background is by Tim Holtz and 
embossed with gold embossing powder pretending to be
honey on the behive.

Another look at the splatter in the background,
and the sprinkles on the apple stamp.

I think the apple stamp (from the set "Picked for You")
gives a real good impression of a real apple.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

Simon Says: distress it!

When you have the Tim Holtz wine and beer stamps
on your table, you just cant stop using them!
So I made another card for the challenge

The challenge is:
Distress it!

The background of the card is made with various
Tim Holtz stencils, gesso and distress oxide inks.
The drinks are stamped in black and colored
with ditress inks and a watercolor brush.

The sentiment is made up with stickers from the 
Tim Holtz big chat idea-ology book.

Also on the drinks used a tiny dot stencil to add to all the bubbles.
The card is alos decorated with a few sticky enamel dots.

Simon Says tape it and distress it

Today I had inspiration to make a card for 
the Monday and Wednesday Challenge on the
Simon Says Stamp blog. and it turned
out all could be in one card. It took me all day to make,
for i lost my beer stamp and it was a scavenger hunt
to find my beer stamp ( looking for it i also cleaned
my table, but finally found it clinging to my
Michael Strong coffee stamp! :-) )

For the Monday Challenge it was:
Tape it Up!

I just love these miniblueprint stamps CMS 336
by Tim Holtz with the beer and wine stamps.
 Now I  make lots of men birthday cards with it.
The celebrate is a die and the wordt is one of the 
sentiment stickers by Tim Holtz.
The musical washi tape is perfect for birthday cards.

The background of this card is made with vintage
distress oxide ink. First I colored the card
with a blending tool and with the same color
I stamped the images. The bottles are stamped
in black and colored a little with karisma pencils.
Distress it.

Thank you for looking
and have acreative day!

Club Scrap August sketch

Today I played with photoshop to make this card
with a beautiful picture I took yesterday visiting a 
flower center. As it is very hot here (between 90-100F),
the best place to sit is with my ventilator and the computer.

For my card I used the Club Scap Lavender Fields hybrid kit.
Here is the sketch for this month.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

Coffee & Creepers!

This describes my coffee addiction perfectly :-)
I found these images on Etsy and just had to have them.

These are designed by a fellow coffee friend
Monica Monge-Taylor and you find her Etsy shop HERE.

First I opened photoshop and opened 
the sentiment and the frame (from Create with TLC)
and combined the layers. 
The cup with the spider I added on top and later
colored it with a zig marker.
After saving the image as a jpg I then printed it
on heavy paper and cut the image to size.

The background in black and white is a piece of
Halloween scrap paper from a Tim Holtz paper block.
Purple cardstock, backers twine and some sequns to finish 
the card.
Here you see the inside of my card. A left over paper
from the front and some siderweb stamps.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!
