Tuesday Morning Sketch #681 Bird

 Dear Crafty Friends,

It has been some time since I did a sketch

and today I felt like doing one.

I choose this sketch from
As you can see besides the sketch, it also
needs a bird. For my card I used all
materials by Tim Holtz.
and colored them with markers. Papers are from a 
8x8 inch paperpad Christmas #TH94085.
On the pumpkin I did some glossy accent as
well as on the eye.

Thank you for looking.
Have a creative day!

Wedding card for my niece

Hello Crafty Friends,

Last week I was away on vacation to Israel,
because my niece was getting married.
It was a beautiful beach wedding. 
Of course i had to make her a card.

For my card I used two stamp sets by Stampin'Up!:
The left set is a very old wooden set called: Oh, how we danced
and the right set is called Love you still (more recent, but not
available in this years catalogue).

I used a lot of cold embossing powder and the background 
paper has golden dots. It is a pity you cannot see this.
The Cuppah (wedding canopy) is colored with
SU! blending markers.

The ceter part of the card I stamped first, before
I cut it out with this lovely scalloped square die.

This is the back of the card
and the stamped enveloppe (with gold embossing).

A peek at the happy couple.
May they have a long and happy life together.
Mazal Tov!

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

Coffee and Gnomes

Hello Caffinated Crafty Friends,

Here is my entry for the October
 and the theme is Coffee and Gnomes.

For my card I used a combination of
Tim Holtz (cup and sentiment)

The gnomes are colored with markers and I added a holographic sequin
on the top of the hats.

This card i shared on instagram.
This is a combination of
Funky Fossil Design stamps and coffee die.

The background paper is with silver snowflakes, but tht is hard to see
on the picture. Also siver paper behind the sentiment.
This came from the Tim Holtz  Seasonal Scribbles CMS386.

Thank you for looking 
and enjoy your day!

Yom Kippur Blog Hop

Welcome to another Jewish themed blog hop.
This time we celebrate Yom Kippur.

Yom Kippur is the holiest, most important day of the year in Judaism, known as the “Day of Atonement.” It begins at sundown Tuesday, October 4, 2022, and ends Wednesday evening, October 5th—the last of the ten days of penitence that began with Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year). On this day we fast and pray.

For my card I focused on the ramshorn (the shofar).
 It is blown at the end of the holiday with a very long tone, called Tekiah Gedolah:
Hear the sound of the shofar. 
This loud and long tone marks the end od the fast.
This  star of David is from an old set of stars (1999).
I embossed it with gold embossing powder and cut it out.

Next I created a little shofar by using one of the circles
from the stitched shapes framelits dies.

Out of one circle one can cut to horns.
These I used as templates to create a background for my card.

With Brown Sugar ink, a blending tool and the horns as template
I created this shofar background for the card.
I rolled a piece of washi tape on the back of the template so it
dit not move around.
Behind the star I added a blue square (cut with the stiched 
square die) and out of the shofar the letters Tekiah are blown.
Tiny elegant faceted gems decorate the word.
For the inside of the card I created this border.
I stamped and gold embossed and also stamped some with 
Brown Sugar ink. Not sure from which set this is.
Here the finished inside of the card with the star border.
The Jewish sentiment is from my stash.

Wishing you all well over the fast and 
my you be inscribed in the Book of Life.
