Simon Says: Add a Number

Oh my, I can hardly believe it, but I was a winner 
at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge:
Stars and Stripes.
You can see it here.

That does not mean I stop making cards for this blog.
Here is my new card for this weeks challenge:
"Add a Number" at
I wanted to make a Summer coffee card,
so I choose all happy volors and an iced tea image.

For my card I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder
and rubber stamp.
The inks are all distress oxide inks.

How to get ll these colors on your card?
Open the embossing folder and on the side that 
embosses the front of the card you add all colors of
ink BEFORE embossing. Add a few drops of water
and lay down the cardstock. Now run this through
the embossing machine and when you open
the folder you have this colorful card.

Now for all the details I stamped and colored
with the inks and Tim's stamps.
The number is a die by Stampin'Up!

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

Happy Birthday, Owen!

Today my first-born grandson Owen is already celebrating
his 7th birthday. I still remember the day he was born,
Now he is such a big boy: he can read, write and draw
beautifully. He swims, loves to help in the kitchen and
of course do games on his ipad. He is a very good
Pokémon player and loves everything about it, so
here is his card:
I found some digital Pokémon paper on Etsy
and printed this for the background.
The images are all from the internet and
cut out by hand. The letters of his name
are thinlits by Stampin'Up! and the
birthday sentiment is by Tim Holtz.

Here a close up of all the images.
He loved it that I got all the right ones!

This is the inside of the card.

Thank you foor looking
and have a creative day!

Simon Says: Stars and Stripes

Here is my entry for the challenge on:
Stars and Stripes.
The American flag is a stamp by Tim Holtz
and done in two colors of distress oxide ink.
The sentiment is printed with the computer.

These coffee cups are a rubber stamp by
Michael Strong and colored with a waterbrush
and candied apple and broken china distress oxide ink.
The golden stars are cut out with a paper punch.

The background of this card is made with a stars 
embossing folder. I added the red and the blue ink
to the folder with a splash of water before adding 
the paper in the embossing folder. Gives a great
result after running it through the big shot.

The ribbon is by DL. ART (hand dyed ribbons)
and the sentiment is by Tim Holtz.

Thanks for looking
and have a creative day!
