Keukenhof inspiration

Happy Saturday stamping friends!
I have my friend Jill stayong with me this week
and as she is from the US I am touring The Netherlands
to show her some of our wonderful sites.
As Thursday was a beautiful sunny day we went to the
Keukenhof to see the bulbs. All the blossoms were out too
and as Club Scrap's theme this month is cherry blossom,
Jill took this wonderful picture and with Club Scrap's digital
kit I made it into this postcard.

There was also a nice oriental pat with bamboo and 
more beautiful cherry blossom trees.
So it was easy to get some inspiration for my card.

With some of the new stuf from the craftshow we
have visited I made this card.

My new panda die and

the gilding wax on a pice of black embossed paper

the card looked totally adorable.

Then one of Michael Strong's cranes stamped
on gold paper and embossed in black the
card was finished.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

Mojo Monday 493 and CS Cherry Blossom

I just had another idea for the Mojo Monday sketch
with my Club Scrap Cherry Blossom papers and stamps.

Today I used the Mojo Monday sketch 493 again,
but this time I turned it upside down.

I stamped and embossed these beautiful lanterns
and colored them with aquarel pencils.

The sentiment is so beautiful for a wedding card.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

Easter is here!

Happy Sunday!
Hope you all have a wonderful start of your day.
We have a special Sunday tradition at Passover:
Matzoh with scrambled egg! It was what my father
used to do, but now that he is not here anymore,
we keep on doing it.

 I guess you also have all kinds of egg breakfasts
as it is Easter too and want to wish you all
a very Blessed Easter with this shaker card.
For my card I used:
the Michael Strong large egg stamp
Tim Holtz sentiment
Yupo alcohol ink backgrounbd.

I stamped the egg on an acrylic background
and embossed it with white embossing powder.
I did try several pieces of acrylic material before I
found some that did not change when heating up.

This sentiment is from Tim Holtz from the set
Crazy Talk CMS236.

The background is made with yupo, alcohol
ink (yellow, green and hot pink) and alcohol drops.
HERE you see more about how to play with yupo
and the alcohol inks.

I made these layers into a shaker cards
with some light brown sequins.

Thank you for looking and
have a creative day!

Chocolate eggs

It will be a lot of chocolate for Easter, so how about
a fun Easter egg card?
For my card I used;
Platypus image from Craftin Desert Divas
Mini eggs from Michael Strong
bows die from Tim Holtz
sentiment by Create with TLC

The Platypus image comes colored and not colored.
I used the colored images this time and printed them
in opposites and 3 times, so I can make a 3d version.

Here you see all the parts that I cut before
mounting them with foam tape.

Now for the eggs. I used some dark brown
choclate colored paper and embossed the image
with coper colored embossing powder.

Don't they look yummy?!

Now here everything is put together.
On top of the egg a bow made with a die.
The bow and the beak of the animal are made shiny
with glossy accent.

Each egg also has a tine gemstone in the same color
as the bow on top of the egg.

A close up on the sentiment and the card is finished with a purple
ribbon and a bow. I used two paper punches for the sentiment.

Hope your Easter is going to be chocolate sweet too!

Thanks for looking
and have a creative day!

Happy Passover 2

More playing with my 
Club Scrap Cherry Blossom digital kit.
You find the kit here.

I used it also for my table decoration.
I created this label in Photoshop
and used it on the paperbags for my
flower decoration on the table.
I printed this matzoh paper and created the paperbags,
like I did here. The labels are added with foam tape.

Not only did I use the labels on the bags, also
I used it on the tray where I had the flowers stand on.
I was so lucky that my real paper kit arrived yesterday 
and I could use one of the beautiful ribbons and the
cute little flower stickers from this kit.

Wishing all of you a wonderful Passover week.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

Happy Passover

As Passover is starting tonight with a special
dinner called Seider: prayers, story and a meal,
I want to wish all those who celebrate a very
Happy Passover.

For my card I used the new Club Scrap kit for April
 called Cherry Blossom.

This card is made with the digital kit, that you can find HERE.
For only $ 4,95 you can have so much fun using
all the images to make cards and scrapbook pages.
You can print it on paper and use it however you want
and how large or small you want.

I created this card in photoshop, but printed it out
twice to do some layering. The font that I used for
the sentiment is called Ananas Lips (and is a free font).

The panel with the 3 flowers was cut out and
also the leaves of the flower are partially cut out.
In the hear of the flower i added a drop of
gel gloss by viva decor. It is one of those pearl pens.

Her a close up on the sentiment and the drops,
that i also added on other places on the card.

Enjoy the matzot
and thanks for looking.
Have a creative day!
