Club Scrap and retiform technique

Welcome to another fun technique idea on the Club Scrap Blog.
Today i am sharing there an old but such a fun technique called
"Retiform". You can see how to make this on the Club Scrap Blog.

This technique is perfect for one layer cards.
Once you start doing this you make lots of cards 
and want to try all kind of variations with all your stamps!
This card is made with the Club Scrap October stamps 

And here is another card. This time I used my 
Club Scrap Lagoon stamps

Hope you give this technique a try and add your 
card to the linky tool on the

Pumpkin tag

Here is my tag for the pumpkin challenge on 
Diana Larsons blog HERE.

While I was cleaning my desk again, I found a little
pile of tags with some beautiful backgrounds,
ready for finishing and this is one of them.
Background is made with distress inks and Tim Holz stamps.

For this the tag I also used pumpkin, cat and bird dies.
The border on the bottom is also a wonderful
 die from Tim Holtz fastned with stamples to the 
tag. The sentiment stamps are from Lawn Fawn
and the pumpkin coffee image is a digital image

The beautiful pumpkin ribbon is of course 
one of the handdyed ribbons by Diana Larson.
You find these ribbons here.

with markers. Then they were cut out and fastened
to the background with foam tape.

Think Pink

Loving the combination of brown and pink.
Made this card for the Love Cynthia Facebook Group.
As I only have the Coffee Addict stamp set,
I used this cute little girl and sentiment from that set.

These are the challenges for October
and week two is the pink challenge.
You find the Facebookgroup HERE.

I colored the little girl with twinmarkers
and added a tiny pearl as a button.
The sentiment is stamped with brown ink.
The pink background is embossed  with a cupcake
embossing folder. Nothing better than coffee and cake!

Thank you for looking
and have a latte creative day!
