City Crafter #364

Good morning!
It's time for a new challenge
at the City Crafter.
 This week Marina is our host  and she picked the theme:

"Out of this world"


(source)

Marina asks us to use anything
 related to space, planets, stars or 
the phrase "out of this world".

Lucky me I LOVE stars :)

So I went with the stars and 
created a baby card. 
I made it without using the
 traditional colours blue or pink.
For those who know me I
used a lot of white, a bit of black
and a touch of a natural element:



I fell in love with this embossing  folder from Carta Bella. The sentiment is from a set of  Clearly Besotted. It's a gift  from my friend Thea. The wooden star is the finishing touch. A perfect match with this weeks' theme:

City Crafter #362

Good morning!
It's Tuesday and that means
a new challenge at the City Crafter Challenge blog.
Before I tell you all about the new challenge  I want to let you know that I am studying  for my exam.  I need this exam to keep my certificates up-to-date for the next two years. Here in the Netherlands these exams  are mandatory for anyone who works in the  banking or insurance industry.  I have a few weeks left and that means  I have limited time for blogging.  Besides leaving comments on the  CCCB entriesI won't be able to keep  up with you as usual.  But if I do have a free moment I 'll try to stop by. It's not a matter of interest but it's all about getting an education:)
On to  the challenge! Today Kirstyis our host and she  picked a photo inspiration theme.  Create a project inspired by the photo
and tell us about it.

I went along with the globe:


The image and sentiment speak for itself:

I haven't decided yet if I am going to use

City Crafter #361

Good morning!
It's time for a new challenge
at the City Crafter.
 This week Marina is our host  and she picked the theme:

"Arrivals"
And that means: maybe a baby chick  or a baby human. The arrival of spring  or an arrival at the airport.
(source)
I went with the idea of  an arrival at the airport:

Just a fewwooden embellishments  and a simple sentiment;that's it:) The sentiment is in Dutch and means: "welcome home"
Looking for inspiration? If you hop over toour blog you'll find the projects from   the other team members.

Thanks for stopping by  and enjoy your day!

City Crafter #360

Hello and good morning!
It's my turn to host this
weeks' challenge at theCity Crafter. I picked the theme:
"You can do it"


Create your own background using your, inks,  paints, markers, embossing paste  and/or stamps.  Choose your favorite colours and use  your favorite technique(s). 
But most important:  have fun!
(source)
As much as I love CAS cards  with lots of white I also love colour.  I am a fan of anything watercolour,  inks, paints and mixed media.  A few weeks ago I bought a few new Oxide inks and this is my card using Oxide ink:

Using ink, adding water,  heat dry with my heat tool. And repeat for about 5 times:) Once I finished my background  I added a few circle stamps,  a dragonfly and a sentiment. The twine and sequins are  the finishing touch:)

team members onour blog.
