Christmas Cards {with sketches} #70

Hi there and welcome back to another CCWS!

This week Nicolet made the sketch and it's way too cute!
I kept my card really CAS, wanted a clean and white base with only some papers on it.
I colored my stamped image with the Spectrum Noir markers. Got the colors I used on another piece of paper. Will let you know which colors I used.

A detailphoto of my card...

Thanks so much for coming over!
Please join us at the CCWS-blog with this challenge. As every week, you can win a Top 3 spot and there's a sponsored prize as well.... this week from Krea Teja.

Christmas Challenges {with sketches} #68

Hi there and welcome back!

Today it's time for the Snow Angels to show the cards they made for CCWS.
Can you tell I'm in love with my kraft cardstock for my Christmascards recently?? Specially in combination with these gorgeous patterned papers.

It was hard for me to make this card, as it always needs a bit more thinking with all those little squares.
I made my card 5 1/4"x 5 1/4" and my squares 1 1/4", so they would perfectly fit onto my card with a little space left for the sides.

This week is a special one, as we not only have to use the sketch, but also have to use some felt on the project.
I hardly have felt, so I was glad when I found out I had some "cranberry"-colored felt I bought in London last November at a craft store. Perfect for Christmascards.
Diecut the word "merry", the tag and the angel with wings. Also stamped the angel and tag with one of my fave PTI Christmasstampsets :)

Well... enough said... here's my card :)

Thanks so much for coming over and hope to see you around later on.
Now it's time for you to go to the CCWS-blog and participate in this challenge, as you can win some goodies *and who doesn't like goodies??* :)

2 CAS Cards... Best Wishes and Thank you

Hi there!

It's been a while...
Went to the Art Specially Event last Saturday and it was a blast! Met some lovely friends and had the time of my life, feeling like a kid in a candystore :)
Unfortunately I had a terrible pain in the head all day, so didn't do any of the marvelous workshops, only looked and went home quite early. Last couple of years I go by train and take my bike with me so I can cycle from train to the event... always lovely to ride through an almost quiet forest early morning.
Unfortnately the trainride home was terrible.... had an hour extra traveltime...ah well... I've seen Amsterdam during that trip ;)

I'm already experimenting with my newly bought goodies and some projects will be soon on this blog *stay tuned*
My wallet enjoyed itself a lot, as Magnolia wasn't there, I didn't "need" *that* much and haven't spend that much like I normally do *whoopsie!*

Now I'd like to show you some cards I made recently, but haven't posted yet.
The challenges I'm playing in with each card, are under the card itself.

The first one is a card I cased from... myself :)
Oh yeah... I so loved the card I made earlier, I changed some things and here's the "improved" version of it...

- Crazy for CAS: Embellishments
- Card Mania: Diecuts/punches
- DigiSketchChallenge: Theme: Butterflies
- Lexi's Creations: Diecuts/Punches
- Hobbycutz: CAS
- Card Makin'Mamas: No patterned papers

And here's my second card.... with....

Oh yeah... some Bermuda Bay ink!! One of my fave blue colors and it's back in SU's next catalog *WHOOOWHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP*
I was so very unhappy when those incolors disappeared, including melon mambo and razzberry fizz, but the last 2 are already back and now Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry will be as well... Finally, as I almost ran out of those last cardstockcolors and am so glad I didn't sell those inkpads *lol*

Anyways... back to the project... just a very, very CAS "Thank you"-card, as I needed some of these for people.

- CAS on Sunday: Thank you
- My Time to Craft: CAS One-layer

Thank you so much for coming over and taking the time to visit :)

Card for men feat. Penny Black

Hi all and welcome back!

Today I'd like to show you a card I made a couple of days ago.
When my computer didn't work, I colored loads of images, and this is one of them. Wanted to use my Penny Blacks a bit more. Love those little animals a lot :)

I made this card for a men's birthday, really CAS... really in need of birthdaycards at this moment.
Colored the image with my Spectrum Noir markers. TN1, TN2, CR9, OR1, IB2.

Added some glitter to the champagne as well :)

Anyways...this is it for today. Thanks so much for coming over and hope to see you around later on :)

Mojo Monday #287 -- Good photo :)

Hi all and welcome back!

Wow... this week's sketch at Mojo Monday has absolutely brought back my Mojo to create something within a reasonable time ;)

Already had these patterned papers on my desk and with a little help of the sketch, it turned into this card...

I'm not a "Blue-kinda"- person, but I totally love these colors combined with each other.
Love this one! :)

Anyways...thanks so much for coming over and hope to see you around later on :)

Happy Birthday! CAS-Style

Hi all and welcome back!

Hope you're all enjoying your Eastertime with your friends, family, beloved ones.
Today I like to show you a Birthdaycard as my stash has really decreased the last few weeks and am in need for some the next couple of weeks.
Kept it quite simple, just some diecutting, stamping and embossing...

And a close-up so you can see the dimensional I used on my card...

I just looooooooooove this colorcombo of Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Rose Red and Pretty in Pink.
I was inspired by the photo on the Paper Smooches blog, so thought I should use my photoframe die and the colors used.

Anyways... time to go to bed...
Last night we went from Winter to Summertime... now only if we got some nice warm weather... it's still around 2-3 degrees C, too cold for this time of year.

Thanks so much for coming over and hope to see you around later on :)
