City Crafter #263


Today it's my turn to host the new challenge at the 
City Crafter Challenge Blog

Our theme for this week is "Sequins".
I think that is not much of a surprise; 
my favorite embellishment:)

 This is a part of my stash :)

Our Guest Designer is Helen
you can find more of her lovely projects on her blog.
The winner will be invited
 to join us as a Guest Designer.

I bought a stencil recently
and inspired by Ros (she's amazing with stencils!)
I had to give it a try:

The bricks were made with my stencil. 
The splatters were made using a wooden pin 
you normally use for appetisers :). 
I splattered around and I think it turned out quite good.
Adding sequins, a few tiny rhinestones
 and some silver yarn:

On our blog you can find more inspiration from 
the other team members.
I am looking forward to see what you come up with;
 thanks for stopping by!

Blog Hop Inspiration

A rhinestone for a little bling :)

Shaker card


While we were visiting Martijn in Liverpool 
I also had the chance to spend a whole day with Ros
  in her craftroom (An amazing place!)
And I wish I could hop over on a weekly base..:)
Marcel and Martijn were off to Anfield 
and Ros and I had a wonderful day.
Her friend Pat joined us and I must admit
 I have never laughed so much in one day:)
Ros taught me how to make a shaker card.
 She is a great teacher. I am not the best student;
 I spent too much time talking and laughing.

On to my card!
I also used the smooching technique:

And placed my sentiment almost out of sight.....
That happens when you want to talk, 
laugh and craft at the same time...:

Back home I had to make another shaker card 
with all that Ros has told and taught:

I love the gold trend!

Thanks for stopping by!

Various from Ros
For the card made at home I used
supplies from the card kit from "Bij Oma Dee"
My Minds Eye On Trend Paper
Gold paper
Sentiment die from Little B

 I needed a get well card for one of my BIL. 
And making a masculine adds 
an extra challenge to this weeks theme.
 At least for me:)

You can hardly see it on this photo 
but the sentiment is stamped with gold ink.

Three in a row


I hope you are all well and having a great day!
I am here with three CAS cards. 
 Made for different occasions; 
but they all have a lot of white space:)
Here we go:

I inked up a balloon stamp from MFT 
for the 4th birthday of my grandniece;

A birthday card for my eldest brother.
Made with the woodgrain embossing folder from SU 
and star dies from Paper Smooches:

One of my best buys; this sentiment die from Papertrey Ink.
And sequins of course:)
