For Resa

Ever since Joƫlle is born, her sister Resa is making a lot of progress. After eating babyfood for almost 7 years, she is now eating "big people" food!! We are all so proud of her. And to show her, and because she loves cards with "Dollies" on (that's Tilda for you and me), what better way then make a lovely card!

Tilda, in her kitchen, making a lovely applepie or whatever :):) She is colored with Promarkers and prismacolors. The jars and windows in the cabinet are glazed, to give them a glass effect! Used some wallpaper like backgroundpaper :) Kept it fairly simple, so it's not too overwhelming for her, as there is a lot to see on this card.

This coming friday is a day full of birthdays. First of all it will be my sisters birthday. We will see her only a few days after, because we are going to Holland on tueday!! Looking so much forward to it. I can then give her her card, cos I am a bit scared in sending it tbh :)
Also that same friday is my Father-in-Law's birthday. Steve is an amazing guy, and I love him to bits!! Yesterday I made him his birthdaycard with my new Adorables stamps. When I saw these stamps on Create and Craft I knew I had to have them, so I ordered them, and then it took almost 3 weeks before they finally arrived!! Not very good service of C&C. When they came, it took me 2 days to cut them out of the rubber and stick them on EZ-mount, and then it took me another full day to cut them out of the EZ-mount. Now that it's done it is time to play!!
I can post Steve's card now, cos he does not go on my blog, and he wont see it before his birthday :) I was really happy with the result!

I saw this type of card on Bev Rochesters blog, and fell in love with it. The card has a big hole in the middle and on the backpart it has the sentiment.
The little boy is colored with Promarkers and Prismacolors. For myself to remember and maybe for others who would like to recreate some of the colors, I have actually written down the colors I used.

skin= ivory, blush and ducky pink
shirt and socks = midnight blue, china blue, cornflower and blue pearl.
trousers = french navy, aegean, cyan and sky blue
backpack brown and shoes = cinnamon, tan and putty
backpack green and pocket shirt = olive green, marsh green, moss and pear green
hair and walking stick = walnut, cocoa and caramel

for the geese:
feathers = tan and putty and cool grey 1 plus blender for a bit of shading in the white.
Here's the card laying flat, so you can see the sentiment really well, and just the overall layout of the card!

Another one

A while back I posted a card that someone in my craftclub asked me to make as an example for her. I really do like that kind of card so I made another one.

All flowers and this wonderfull image by Penny Black are colored with Promarkers and Prismacolors. Actually, this image was the first time I used the pencils, and a whole new world of coloring opened for me :) I dont think I can ever color without anymore :)

Ribbit Ribbit :)

I think it was 2 months ago, or maybe a bit longer, but I did make a fantastic deal then :) We were at Carboot, and there I saw this stand with craftstuff. This girl was selling all her wooden block stamps. I asked how much they were, and she gave me a price. So I started looking through them, and realized that everything inthere was just amazing. So I asked what the full box would cost me. Mind you, there were 45 stamps inthere, and not just small ones. There were stamps inthere that are worth at least 10 pound a piece.
She asked for 15 pound for the complete box, and I got a heatgun with it for free!! Guess what ... I bought it :)

Then it was close to my Uncles birthday, and one of the stamps inthere was just perfect for him :)

This cute and fun frog was in it :) A very large stamp, which is so much fun!! Colored with Promarkers and Prismacolors.

And this is the inside of the card. Simple, but it does the trick :):)

Happy Birthday Resa

Last week it was my little niece's birthday. I say little, but she is getting a bigger girl now, she is 7!! I now can show my card, as I had to wait till it arrived in Holland :)

I found this lovely tilda in my collection, and it was just perfect for her!! Originally, she has 8 candles on her cake, but I was able to cus one away and made it 7 candles!! Colored her with promarkers and prismapencils.
My aunt has got this amazing doily die and she gave me a couple. I gladly used one on this card, as it just seemed perfect for it :) Used a bunch of flowers and stamped Hurrah it's Resa's birthday in dutch :) All in all I was happy with this card, and so was Resa :)

sketch saturday

This is my entry for this weeks sketch on Sketch Saturday blog. I really enjoyed this weeks sketch (as I do every week really). This sketch was perfect for a christmas card.

I so adore the christmas Tilda stamps. I colored her with Promarkers and Prismacolor pencils. The snowflakes are made from a Martha Steward snowflake ribbon punch. I cut them loose, and then used Liquid Applique on it. Covered them in blue glitters, and then used the heatgun to puff up the liquid applique. I love this technique, and it is always fun to see the stuff puff up like crazy :)

Pop up

I made this pop-up card when I was at my mum's in april. Really enjoyed making it and I am sure there will be more of these to follow :)

This is the front of the card. I had all these new things to play with, button dies, circle die, butterfly punch and so I used it all on this card hahaha :) Tilda is colored with promarkers and prismacolors. I gave her a little bunch of flowers in her hand :)

This is the inside of the card. Tilda on her fence pops up when you open the card. Used more new dies and the little doggy stamp that's from Prima Marketing.

You can see the pop-up effect a little better on this picture :)
