Simon Says: Anything Goes

For the challange Anything Goes on the 
I made this birthday card.
For this card i used:
Floral Trims CMS461
Papillon CMS106
Bold Sayings CMS433
Distress oxide ink
Distress oxide spray Crackeling Campfire

I started stamping with versamark watermark
and gold embossingpowder.

Next I added some distress oxide inks on the glassplate
and by wiping the ink off the plate and on the card.
This is reapeated a few times until satisfied with the color.

When all was dry I added some Crackling Campfire splatters
on the card.

I used the sewing machine to make the border on the card.
Also some gold thread underneath the birthday sentiment.
The sentiment is also with gold embossing powder
and added the same colors as the background.
Matching envelop for sending out the card.

Thank you for looking and
have a caffinated creative weekend!

Simon Says: Make your Mark

A new challenge on the
Make your Mark.

Now I received my new Tim Holtz stamps
last week and I just have to play with them,
seeing what I can do.
So here is the result:
For this challenge I used the new
Floral Trims CMS461 cling stamp
Note Quotes CMS 463
and the layering stemcil Brush Hex
different colors of distress oxide ink.

I started with stamping this Floral stamp in versamark
watermark and embossed with gold.
Next I put some colors of distress oxide ink on my
glass plate and wiped it on the card. When dried I
added images with the Brush Hex stencil.

Next I stamped the sentiment on a piece of cardboard
from the box the stamps came in. I also used it on the
background of the card. Stapled the image to the piece
from the box. Gives it a grungy feeling.

Thank you for looking and i hope you have 
a great caffinated creative weekend!

Simon Says: Things with Wings

Another fun challenge on the 
Things with Wings.

Here my finished card with butterflies by Tim Holtz.

Here I displayed all the materials I used:
distress oxide  inks
cling stamp: Papillon CMS106

I started with a background I had lying around made in direct
to paper technique. I used my stamping platform, because 
I wanted to stamp several colors

Here you see the first layer of butterflies.
I also stamped them on a seperate piece to cut out
and add later on with foam tape.

I added the big script stamp and next used two
different stencils to finish off the card.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative caffinated day!

Passover 2023


For Jewish people this week Passover (April 5 - 13) has started.
 It is the commemoration of the Exodus from slavery  in  Egypt 
and the journey to freedom.

This Holiday starts with a seder: a special meal with a strory, prayers,
 special food and songs, In israel it is only one evening
 and outside Israel two evenings are  celebrated.

Of course I made some cards:
The sentiment on this card is an oldie but goodie by
Create with TLC. It is a freebie that you can still find HERE.
I printed some matzo paper to make the heart shape
and design paper in the background.

Passover is also a Spring Holiday and so these Tim Holtz inspired 
carrots are on this card. I used  Tim's Bottlebrush Trees and 
some raffia to create the carrots. 
The background is more of the matzo printed paper.

Hope you all have a lovely Passover.
chag sameach!

Those who celebrate Easter I wish

Caffinated creative greetings!
