Create4fun Challenge 32


I'm really in a cardmaking mood. Here's another christmas card for another sketch challenge. Again I've changed the square sketch into a rectangle card (see previous post). This card has more patterned papers than I'm used to, but I'm satisfied with it!

Supplies: Basic Grey Eskimo paperpad ( Lisa 's candy)
Sugar Nellie stamp 'Lola with gift'

Friday Sketchers Sketch 114


Yesterday I read on someone's blog only 136 days are left 'till Christmas. Time to get started with those Christmas cards. I've based this one on the Friday Sketchers challenge. I changed the square sketch into a rectangle card. If you post a square card in Belgium, you have to pay double postage, so I try to make most rectangle cards. It's of course easier to decorate square cards as you have more space. So I keep it quite simple and I therefor left the sentiment on the front behind and just stamped it on the tag.

Supplies: Victoria Case stamp ( Lori's candy)
Basic Grey Eskimo paper pad ( Lisa's candy)
EK Succes Retroflower punch
brads (?)

Just Magnolia week 67

I'm happy to be in vacation this week, so I have plenty of time to be creative. My second card is for the Just Magnolia blog. I've never used acetate before, so this was a real challenge for me. I've spend quite some time on this card, but I'm really happy with the result and I'm sure I'll send it to a special person.
Not easy to see the acetate in the picture, but it's in the window of course.

Charisma Cardz Challenge: teddy bears

It's been a while, but it seems I found my mojo back! I already created a card with gift holder yesterday, but I'll show it later. I don't know for which occasion I'll use it yet, and it still needs some finishing stamping. This is my second creation in my vacation: a birthday card with a special fold. I really like how it turned out. I use aquarel pencils for the colouring and I'm starting to like this more and more. I want to enter this card in the Charisma Cards Challenge for this week, which is Teddy Bears. I love this Popcorn stamp, although it's quite big and there's no space left for embellishements.
