Happy Father's Day!

Hello Crafty Friends,

It is always a stuggle what to get my dearest husband for Father's Day.
Socks he has enough, perfumes and books too. No wishlist.
So I noticed we only had one beer glass left and so I ordered six new
beer glasses ans some bottles of beer to fill it with.
Tonight I will coock something that goes perfect with a glass of beer.
Ok, not an original present, but just what we needed :-)

At least I had the right stamps to make the matching card!!
They are all by Stampin'Up! with matching dies.
The sets I used are Bubble Over and Mixed Drinks.
De sentiment is from Guy Greetings.
A pity you do not see the Nuovo glitter on the beer glasses.

This is going to be a Happy Father's Day!

Hope all your men will have one too.

Thanks for looking and
have a creative day!

Masculine caffinated Christmas card

Hello Caffinated Crafty Friends,

Here I am with my card for the
#6 challenge of the
The theme this month is: Masculine.

So for my card I used a Christmas theme filefolder by Tim Holtz
and his Inquisitive stamps. The coffee cup die is a Big die
and the sentiment is by Verve Stamps (not available anymore).

I thought these men needed lots of good cheer in their cups!

The Merry Christmas is a piece of washi tape and of corse a ribbon
is used to decorate the file folder.

Inside the filefolder I made a card for writing your message.

Wishing you all a wonderful
crafty caffinated day!



 Hello Crafty Friends,

Here are some masculine cards I made with the ladies of the carehome.
I used a new die by Marianne Design with "Proost" all round the circle.
This is Dutch for  Cheers!
The bottle and glass stamps are by Tim Holts (whine blueprints).
And some golden corner stickers.
The dark brown middle part is embossed with 3d woodgrain
and the background is a piece of design paper.

For the 2nd card (we usually make 2 cards) I used a coloring
page, but rezized it so it would fit in the circle.
Some of the ladies love to color.

I love using the Tim Holtz stamps, so I made another card for my own
collection. The sentiment: Proost! op je gezondheid, means:
Cheers! to your health.

For the background I used a TH stencil and rusty hinge distress ink,
some splatter and washi tape.
The images are colored with alcohol markers and on the glass I added
some glossy accent.

Thank you for looking
and have a crafty day!
