Did you Spring Hop?

I was going to announce the winner
of the Spring Blog Hop today,
but I give some of you a few extra days,to  
Spring Hop and leave your comments to win these cute
chicks called Fiona's Flock.

Hope you will take another look and start the hop here:

Here is  a treat bag with a cute little chick
with Easter Wishes. Can you guess what will be
inside the bag?

I stamped the chick on the banner first
and next on the printed yellow paper.
Before I glued the cut out chick on top,
I stamped the background stamp
(one from unknown brand), that fits
perfectly with the pattern on the treat bag.

On Saturday for sure I will announce the winner.

Thank you for looking.
Have a creative day!

Club Scrap Blog Hop: 50s Kitchen

Hello,
Welcome to the Club Scrap March Blog Hop
with the 50s Kitchen kit.
Hope you arrived here from 
and seen her wonderful ideas.
Here is my project. I have come up with a recipe wreath.
And this is how I made it:
First I started with making the circle out of
part of a pizza box.I used the size of a dinner plate.

and a bowl for the inner circle.
Cut out the circle with a scissor.
Then I took a 12 x 12 inch piece of paper from the kit
and stamped a large stamp in the different colors from the kit:
ash, carnation,ocean and sandstone.

This is the result. Again i put the dinner plate on top,
and traced it to cut out a circle.

Around the circle I added red and blue ink.

Glue the paper to the circle and turn it over.
You see my drawing inside the smaller circle
to make a nice cut before glueing it.

After glueing it looks likethis.

I stapled the ribbon to the circle with 2 staples.
You won't see them anymore after glueing the pegs on top.

I used 15 pegs on the circle. From one of the decorated
papers I cut strips to cover the pegs. Alsoadded some ink
after the strips were glued.

I devided the pegs evenly around the background 
and used Club Scrap bookbinding glue to add
tese pegs to the circle.
I found an old black and white picture of me in
my parents kitchen en used this to decorate the 
inner circle of the wreath in combination with 
some unmounted stamps that come with this kit.

Here you see a close up of the recipe cards.
These are 6 x 3 inch and folded in half making a 3 x 3 inch
card. This way there is more room to write also inside the card.
As I just made it,I haven't added any recipes yet.

I gave it a place on the wall of my kitchen and
for sure will add some of my favourite recipes.
This way they are easy to find.

Now on to more ideas of this wonderful 50s Kitchen kit.
The next blog is
and I am curious what she will have for you.

I fyou happen to loose your way in this blog hop,
you can always go back to the 
,where you find all the 23  participants.
A lot of inspiration!!

Thank you for looking.

Have a creative day!

Michael Strong Spring Blog Hop

Welcome to the Michael Strong SPRING Blog Hop

Hope you came here from
and saw his wonderful card.

My card for you is a coffee cup filled with 
the mini-tulips.
You can find all Michael's wonderful stamps HERE.

For this card I used a real coffee filter
and sprays it some light Spring colors.

Then I stamped the Club Scrap's coffee ring stamp in 
green as well as some coffee beans.
Then I cut it to size for the card. What is left
is going to be used for the inside.

The sentiment on the card is by Create with TLC
and printed with the computer.

The Tulips are all stamped on green paper and
embossed in dark green, then cut out. I used the smaller size
of the twotulip stamps. Then I stamped the flower again on 
paper that I sprayed orange and gold glimmermissed.
The flowers are embossed in red for contrast en cut out.
The are mounted with foam tape on top of the green flower.
After stamping the cup,Imade a slit in the top
to arrange the flowers.
Wouldn'tit be nice to setsoon in the garden and 
have my cup of coffee outside!

Here you see the inside of the card, with
the coffee filter background and a subway art
print by Create with TLC,that you can find for free
on my blog HERE

a card panel and diluted it with water. Then dried it

randomly stamped on this.
I colored the chipboard sentiment with dark red ink
and glued it with  glossy accent to the card.

Tim Holtz March Tag


Here is my March tag for
The 12 tags of 2015
on the Tim Holtz Blog.

For the original and all the
technique explanations go HERE.

So here is my tag with one of the new
bird stamps that came out recently:
Bird Crazy CMS212

I started out making the background like
Tim showed,only using the musical
washi tape,because that goes better with the
bird whistling a tune.

Using the woodgrain stencil with
the texture paste and gold embossing
powder for a tree effect.

Here a close up. I thought the bird needed
a little more color, so I used the white distress marker 
to color the eyes and marigold and lemon markers
for the body with some extra drops of water.

So now for the embellishments.
I cut the word tweet out of red paper and
added glossy accent for a little more dimention.

The birdsnest is made with some hemp rope
glued together and 3 sticky pearls.

At the bottom of the tag I stapled the fluffy roses
from Tim's Lavish Trimmings. First I colored
it with cracked pistachio and marigold distress paint. 

Hope you like my take on Tim'stag.
Thanks for stopping by.

Have a creative day!
