City Crafter Challenge # 239


It's Tuesday again and that means a new challenge here at CCCB.
This week Char is our host and her theme is about `Technique`
Create a card or project using your favorite technique; 
and tell us about your technique in your post. 

This week Gerjanne will be our Guest Designer;
she is a very creative and talented paper crafter.
You can find her blog here.

The technique I used is heat embossing.
It's always fun and a bit of magic to see how a sentiment or image
 pops up when you use your heat tool. 
A bit of vellum and papers in an almost graphic design:

Little splashes of color and I am pleased with the almost transparent look:

The winner of this weeks challenge will be offered a Guest Design spot.
I am looking forward to see you what your favorite technique is. 
Hop over to our blog from more inspiration of our Guest Designer and the other team members.

Thanks for stopping by!

City Crafter Challenge #238


Yes it's Tuesday again and that means a brand new 
challenge at the City Crafter Challenge.
This week Ros is our host and she is giving us a fab theme;
"Just a word"
Create a card or project with a one word sentiment.
Here is the photo inspiration:

Our Guest Designer this week is Karolina
Her blog is filled to the brim with gorgeous cards. 

For my first card I choose neutrals and a touch of silver. 
(Yes I made two cards :)....)

Due to a clouded day with loads of rain you can hardly see 
the sparkle of silver in that twine or the rhinestones I added....

For my second card I used a few strips of patterned paper and a sequin stamp that I LOVE:

The winner of this weeks' challenge will be offered 
a GD spot with us at CCCB. So I hope you join us. 
Hop over to our blog to see the inspiration from our 
Guest Designer and the rest of the team!

Fun and failure


Geesh where did the last 5 days go?
This time of the year is busy. Making christmas cards, work, 
fun things and family.
And my weekend started Thursday evening :)
Friday we went to my sister Jacqueline and 
on our way we made a stop at a fab craft store Bij Oma Dee
No I did not need anything specific but this shop is filled to the
 brim with fab craft supplies so I left with a few things:)

It was wonderful to be with my sister and 
we were back home yesterday evening.
Today I have been working on a few cards. 
There are more cards coming but they are not finished yet. 
And I can only take photos during the weekend.
 When I am back home from work it's already dark. 

I am making cards from a kit from Cards and Wishes.
 I won a give away and here is the first card:

Of course a deer; and you can still play along  at the City Crafter Challenge. 
Which is all about a deer!

I also made a card for the Lift Challenge but after taking photos I discovered  that my card wasn't mounted in the centre of my card and the top was not straight. I made it again but too late for the lift challenge. But the second card turned out fab. I am just sharing this to let you know that it also happens to me that cards are ending up in the bin :) And lesson learned; never try to finish a card on a Saturday evening after 10.00 PM...

This turned out great

But here you can see what went wrong....

Enjoy your Sunday; Thanks for stopping by
