Club Scrap sentiment 3

Today I found this cute little
gift card box from way back.
I was thinking, schall I keep it 
or throw it out? NO!!
I will recreate it for today
and so here is the result!

I found this Club Scrap sentiment.
It came with a kit called Memoirs 07/2009

The papers and background stamps are from 
another kit called Henna 05/2009
The sticker decorations are from Welcome 04/2011.
Yes i love to mix and match my kits!

Here you see the closed box.
I decorated the box with flowers
and the sentiment is stmped with 
a clear alphabet from my stash.
I do have a template of this box for you HERE.
I have made these boxes before and you can 
see my other versions 
On the top of the box I made a handle with
little beads on a piece of wire.
I guess now you want to see the inside:

For the flowers on the outside
and the little houses on the inside I have used 
paper punches, but you also see tiny houses 
made out of stickers. These came with the 
Welcome kit.

Well, that was it for today!
Hope you liked it.

Thanks for look,ng 
stay safe
and be creative!

Anything but a Card: Thankful for Nurses

Good Morning Stamping Frienbs,
It is another Anything but a Card Day 

I made a tag today for a box of chocolates
I will deliver to the care home where my mom
stays. I bring them something every week.
That is the least I can do to thank them for
all the work they have to do.

Here is the box of chocolates I decorated
with the tag using the
Bugaboo Nurse Bear First Aid digital stamp.

I started decorating the background with a Tim
Holtz stencil and red distress ink.

With a dot stencil I added blue dots to 
the tag. It is also a Tim Holtz stencil.

Here is the finished tag. The nurse badge is from my
stash and the sentiment is by Create with TLC.
The bear and badge are colored with Stampin'Blends.

The tag fits perfectly over the center of the box.

Thanks for looking,
stay safe
and keep crafting.

Club Scrap sentiments

Club Scrap is one of my favorite 
stamps and scrap companies. 
They are family!

I was looking through my stamps
(yes, to organize them aain)
and i noticed some great stamps
for these strange "stay at home" times.

So I made this card, added it to the 
and started a challenge!

This sentiment is from the kit
Orchard September 2017.
All other papers are also Club Scrap
and the flower embellishments
 are from my stash.

Of course I found more and could not stop
making cards. This sentiment is from the kit
Retro September 2006. All papers and other
stamps are Club Scrap too.

This sentiment is from the Club Scrap Bistro kit
from September 2007. The pink paper is from
the Fizz kit and I used some paper punches here.

And here the last one for today with a sentiment
from the Down to Earth kit April 2005.
All papers are Club Scrap.

Thank you for looking,

Bugaboo Bingo

It is BINGO time at Catch the Bug Challenge Blog!
Below you see the bingo choices.
For my card I did the horizontal middle line:
Button - Bugaboo image - Sparkle.

I choose to use this lovely Flower Pot, for we need
some happy cards these days.
You find the image in the Bugaboo Digital shop
here, named Teacup Flowers1.
I colored the image with stampin'blends.

Well the button and the image are obvious,
but the sparkle is always hard to capture on a 
photo. I added the sparkle on the heart of the
flowers with some blue Stamp & Glitter glue.

Hope I have brighten your day a little and
you are all safe and healthy.

Thank you for looking
stay safe

For the HEROES who like coffee

Sorry everyone, could not resist to make a
coffee version, for I think all those caregivers
need a lot of coffee to keep going±

I hope you know that this Hero image is a 
FREEBIE bij Jillian Vance HERE.

The sentiment and the coffee cup are 
from a stamp set by Simon Says Stamp

but as my printer ink was finished it came out 
black and white and I must say I like it that way
(not to busy in the background.

Thanks for looking,
stay safe
and keep crafting!

For the HEROES part 2

Here are 3 more cards with the FREEBIE by
Jillian Vance on her blog HERE.

On all cards you see a Dutch sentiment for 
Thank You (Bedankt).

This first card is a large card, so everyone can write inside.
It is a folded A4 size piece of white cardstock.

This time I started with making the background with stencils
and distress oxide ink. I used the heart and the dots stencil.

Next I used some red and blue scrap paper, embossed it with an
embossing folder and added this with double sided tape to the 
background. Coloring the shirt with mermaid lagoon distress
oxide ink and a red stampin'blend marker.

For this card. I had the idea of making a medal.
So I cut out the cirkel and this cirkel already had the dots
around the border, which makes it so easy for crochet,
The letters are cut out with tiny letter dies.

I came across this piece of design paper on my
table and made a totally different card, without to many hearts.
The ribbon comes with tape on the background and here I used 
some black letters. Shirts are both colored with mermaid
lagoon distress oxide ink.

Thank you for looking
and stay safe
and keep crafting!

For the HEROES

My mother is staying in a care home and I haven't
been able to visit her for many weeks. I do go there
every Friday  to bring the clean laundry and pick up the dirty laundry.
Each week I add some gifts for the caretakers and for my mom
and of course it is always accompanied by one of my cards.

This week I found a perfect freebie by Jillian Vance Design.
It comes as a pdf file and ready for printing.
In no time I made 5 cards by printing the images on
white and nurse green paper.

This is a big square card of 6 x 6 inch and the background
paper you see on all the cards is Stampin´Up! Valentine
design paper`lots of hearts! I cut out the green shirt and a white sentiment.
Ribbon around the background paper and a rose and one card is done.

Here a sideway card, red cross with sentiment and 
red ribbon and more hearts.

For these cards I added a Dutch sentiment: "Bedankt"
(Thank you!)

And here is my last card with 2 white heart pearls
next to the sentiment.

Today is Friday, so the cards are delivered
and THANK YOU  to all the HEROES who take care of
the sick and the lonely in whatever capacity!

Thank you for looking
and stay safe
and be creative!
