Ice blue


It's Thursday evening and the weekend is almost there.
 I am looking forward to it because it's filled 
to the brim with fun things.
 One of my sisters will be here tomorrow evening and that means 
quality time filled with talking and laughter:)
And I am participating in a baking competition.
 Keeping my fingers crossed because I have to make a cake 
based upon a recipe that I made myself.  
My try out turned out great (tried it last Sunday)
 and Saturday I have to deliver it. I'll keep you posted:)
There is also a wedding party on Saturday evening 
And Sunday there will be time to finish a few projects. 
I will share them next week.

On to my card. Lots of ice blue, even the sequins are ice blue:)

It's another Christmas card:

I hope you like it:)
Take care and enjoy your weekend,

City Crafter Challenge #235


Today we have a new challenge at the City Crafter Challenge
Charlene is our host and she asks us to create a card or project and using stripes:

Gretha will be joining us for the last time being our Special Guest designer for October. 
Gretha thank you so much for your gorgeous cards. 
If you want to know how talented she is you must hop over to her blog

I love stripes; and again I made two cards.
One card with a subtle striped pattern 
and one with stripes as a focal point:

This is subtle:

And as a focal point:
After taking photos I noticed that my heart is a tiny bit off center. (Arghhhhh!)
But I had to share this card too. My cards do not always turn out as I imagined....

I cut the heart out of my striped paper and added a heart cut from dark blue paper.
Would you please let me know what technique this is? Inlay die cut?

The winner of this weeks' challenge will be offered a GD spot at CCCB
Please hop over to our Blog for more inspiration of our Guest Designer and the team.

Flower Patch


How are you?
Already Sunday and I am here to share two cards.
I made these with a stamp set from Stampin' Up; Flower Patch.
For one card I also used one of the coordinating dies.
What I love about this set is the variety of styles . 
And  there are small and large stamps; perfect for mixing and matching.

I used a large die for my flower:

And this is how it turned out:

Using washi tape to create a border:

Have a great day,

City Crafter Challenge #234


It's Tuesday again! 
Time for a new challenge at the City Crafter Challenge blog. 
This week Ros is our host. 
Ros asks us to create a card or project and use a piece of sky. Include at least one of the following items: stars, moon, sun, rain, clouds or snow. Here is the photo inspiration: 

Our Special Guest Designer for October is the talented Greta Just hop over to her blog and see more of her beautiful cards! 

I had to create something with stars. And made two cards for two different occassions. My first card is a masculine birthday card. I added stars and my favorite colors:

I also added some hemp cord for a bow. A bow tied from hemp cord is less girlie:)

My second card is a christmas card. This embossing folder makes me happy :)

I created a monochromatic card. White on white. 
I had to add a touch of red to create a bit of contrast 
and red is perfect for Christmas:

The winner of this week's challenge will be offered a prize sponsored by 
Ros.You can win this lovely paper pad:

I had a sort of fall break from blogging.
 And spent quite some time with my Kitchen Aid. 
It really is the season for baking:)
And now busy with cardmaking again.
 I made a card for the current challenge at the Lift Challenge.
We're supposed to lift this card:

And to pile up my stash of christmas cards 
I grabbed a patterned paper pad I had for ages. 

I cut that snowflake paper with my kraft knife and used some washi tape too:
