Blog Candy

In December staat het geven van cadeautjes heel centraal. Sinterklaas, Kerst en Chanoeka feesten waarbij we elkaar wat geven. Deze maand moet je maar eens vaker een kijkje nemen op mijn blog om te zien wat ik voor cadeautjes heb te vergeven.
Vandaag begin ik met de Kerstboom van Michael Strong. Als je voor 7 december een berichtje achter laat, kan het zijn dat jij nog deze maand met deze kerstboom je kerstkaarten kunt maken.

De kaart hieronder is gemaakt met deze kerstboom en een techniek van de Technique Junkies die heet Jennies coat. Hij komt uit de laatste nieuwsbrief.


In December the giving of gifts is a central focus point. Chanukkah or Christmas, they all end up in giving gifts to loved ones and friends. So do come back to my blog this month and see what I have to give to you.

Today I start with the Christmastree from Michael Strong. If you leave a message in the comment before the 7th of December, you might be so lucky to be able to stamp your cards this year with this tree.

The card above is made with this tree and a new technique from the latest Technique Junkies newsletter called Jennie's coat.

Hallo Hetty

Ik laat graag een berichtje na om mee te doen aan de blog-candy. Toevallig vind ik de kerstboom ook een mooie stempel. Ondertussen heb ik zelf ook 7 stempels van Strong, en mag ik graag op jou site kijken wat jij daarmee doet...

Groeten

Hi Hetty! I love this card!! The Christmas tree stamp is one of the few MS stamps I don't have! So many possibilities with all of it's lovely layers. I can just see what big 3-D image I could make with it! :) :) Thank you for the opportunity to win some Michael Strong rubber! There "really is" a Santa Claus! Hugs!

Just wanted to say that the tree card is lovely and I enjoy seeing all the techniques you share, it really gets the creatice juices flowing! I have decided my first Michael Strong stamp is going to be this tree, I have seen soooo many different cards made with it and they are all just beautiful! So I thought I would add a comment and see if I get lucky! If not, I am still going to own this stamp one day!!!

I so love that stamp Hetty, and would love to win it!!! It has so much potential for various techniques. His stamps are always so artsy...and you do such a great job "showcasing" them. Crossing my fingers here...Rockin Robin Caldwell (stampinsavage at yahoo dot com).

Joyce Spear said...

Such a beautiful tree! Alas, my budget's so tight these days that I can't justify purchasing more rubber. Perhaps I'll win the drawing for this tree so I can put some wear and tear on the stamp making my holiday cards!

Oh wat een leuke blogcandy. Ik ben hier terecht gekomen via de stempelgroep, maar ik ga zeker eens vaker een kijkje komen nemen. Wat zijn die Michael Strong stempels toch mooi hè. Afgelopen jaar wilde ik deze kerstboom kopen in Zeist maar hij had er geen meegenomen, dus ik zou het heel leuk vinden om er langs deze weg eentje te krijgen.

petra said...

wauw, hetty,

thnx voor de kans om deze gave stempel te winnen, wat zijn ze ook gaaf he, ben een fan van die man zo'n lieverd.

iedereen heel veel succes om dit te winnen en ik wens iedereen hele fijne feestdagen toe en een heel gelukig en gezond 2010

Wow Hetty, dit maakt me helemaal wakker: Die allemachtige prachtige kerstboom van Mike. Normaal doe ik nooit aan blogcandy mee, maar voor een Michael Strong stempel: YESSSS.
Ik zie dat er al velen voor me zijn en ik gun ieder die machtig mooie stempel.

Jouw kaart vind ik super du super. TJ heeft altijd van die aparte en mooie ideeën, jij hebt daar een aparte en mooie kaart mee gemaakt.

liefs van fenny
