Simple things

Will always be my favorite. I love a card with lots of white, a touch of colour and using a few dies:)
A few weeks ago Judith and Mirandawere here. A fun day filled with lots of chatting, laughing and spending time together. Judith brought a few dies from Alexandra Renke along. I immediately fell in love with the simple and definitely stunning design.I didn't finish the card until yesterday. I am just not productive when I'm crafting with friends; we are always running out of time:)
At first I wanted to add all kinds of things.But during the process of making this card nothing could please me. In the end I decided to use the die cuts and added a sentiment:



I have lots of ideas for this years' christmas cards in various designs. But I really like this simple design. I didn't even add a piece of twine LOL! And there are more christmas cards coming soon:)



Thanks for stopping by; enjoy your day...

you can create a project and use the word
"Hello"
I split the word Hallo-ween because
  "Hallo" is Dutch for "Hello" :)

Pumpkins are part of the Halloween celebration:




I didn't colour the pumpkins and stamped a border.That's all:

Birthday cards

Good morning :)
Geesh we had a lot of rain and autumn defintely has arrived!Time to stay inside and keep myself busy in my craftroom:)
I made two birthday cards and used one stamp set and the coordinating dies. It's funny to see how these cards turned out different. On my first card I used the stamps and on my second card the coordinating dies:





The first one is quite feminine:



But I think the second one is perfect for a masculine birthday card. The little silver garlands were a gift from my dear friend Ros

Lift Challenge #109

Good afternoon....
With more time and enough inspiration I made a few cards. The first one to share is based upon the Lift Challenge:



We're supposed to add a transparent part and stick to the sketch.
I used a flourish die in a soft shade of blue and added a strip of yellow gingham to add some contrast. 



The embossed background is simple. I used two embossingfolders with dots in different sizes.The sentiment was placed on the inside of my card behind the mica sheet:

Good morning!
It's time for a new challenge
 at the City Crafter.Marina picked the theme:
"Did I make you up?".
And asks us to feature something 
that may not really exist.
 For example:
 a mythological creature 
or a hidden element.

I went with something that 
does not really exist;
a smiling cloud and smiling stars:)
