Good Morning, crafters!

Look what a fun new stamp release we have at

I liked this sentiment by Create with TLC so much.
Don't you think we women need to shine more?!

I made the background with these two stencils.

so a lot of people can sign the card.

For this card I used Stampin'Up! design paper
and an image by JessicaLynnOriginal called

Club Scrap Sentiment

As I still work from home, I am going on making 
one card a day with a Club Scrap sentiment.
Because it is by now card #72 , I decided to make
a Pinterest album with all the cards in one
place for you to see: https://pin.it/4AsYnHa

This is my card for today:

I used a rubber stamp from the set
Expedition and that set is still available HERE.

I started out with stencil #1 to color the house.

Then I used stencil #2 #3 and #4 to create the 
card. After all the stenciling I used the stamps.
The heart and the swirls is from Ivory Elegance
(from 12/2006).

I also use a little gemstone in the middle of the heart.

I share all my cards on instagram.
If you want to follow me, I am 4hetty.

Fun with Distress

I keep on making my #stayathome cards
with the sentiments of 21 years of Club Scrap.

I have been watching all of the Tim Holtz
and have been inspired a lot as well
as learning a lot.

Today I started with a few colors of distress 
Oxide spray for the background.

Next comes the texture paste through the holes
of the Fizz stencil (Club Scrap). When the stencil
is off, I sprinkled the paste with the new distress glaze.

Here you see  the background after the paste has dried
 and is heat embossed.

The sentiment is from Rhapsody (3/2007), a vintage
kit from Club Scrap as well as the background stamp.

Decoration with beats and a metal coin (with 
distress glaze). In the old days we got a little
box of beads and findings with the scrap kit.
Still have some left.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #559

This week it is my turn again to share a card I made

I started out with the design paper (SU!) and the ribbon
and only a sentiment had to be added, 
but I found that too boring.

Than I came across the bird cage between my scraps
and just had to add it to the card as a more interesting 
focal pont for the card. The bird cage is a die by Tim Holtz.

The birds are punched out (an oldie by SU!)  and
decorated with a few silver gemstones.

The sentiment is a rubber stamp by Tim Holtz
from the Glorious Bouquet Set CMS 325.

Anything but a Card: Gift Box

Happy Monday!

Anything but a Card is the challenge on the
Catch the Bug Callenge Blog.

Today I have a little gift box for you and
of course we start the week with
 a wonderful cup of coffee.

I was inspired by a tutorial I found 
The tutorial of the gift box was found HERE.

Only this box was for large tealight candles.
The ones I have here (in The Netherlands) did not fit.
So I had to addapt anyway.
Then i got the idea for the coffee box.
Now I used a base of 7 x 7,5 inch cardstock
and the scrore lines are the same.

Fotr the inage I used
Stella is colored with Stampin'Blends.

The ribbon is behind the  sentiment
(see the tutorial video how it is created).

Inside the box two instant coffee sticks.

Thank you for looking.
Stay safe
and keep crafting!
