Paul's birthday

It was ian's brother Paul's birthday last month, and I made him a cute little card, if I say so myself: 

I used my adorables stamp set, and colored them in with promarkers and prismapencils. Used some lovely spellbinders dies, and printed the sentiment, that I created myself. I thought it was somewhat funny as Paul is like 40+ and so a little teaser about his age had to be done :) Remember those days?? :)

I still go to craftclub every monday morning. I so love it! It's such a great group of lovely ladies :)
Julie, she organizes the club, had seen this fun idea on Create and Craft (don't know how I missed it!!) and she showed me it. Ofcourse I wanted to make it straight away, and this is what I came up with:

The card is a big circle, and one quarter is cut in. Folded the 2 quarters that came seperate through the cut in half and back, so they could stand up. They stand up better because they are attached on some accetate, thats folded. This gives it a little spring, so it folds flat in the envelope but springs up when you take it out. It is a bit difficult to write down how it's done. There are 2 circles on the folded quarters that I rurned into 2 wreaths with a lot of punched branches :) Some pre-made embellishments and a sentiment at the front, and voila, card done :) It sounds more complicated then it is!

X-mas kitty

It took me 2 tries to make this x-mas card. The first time I did the die-cutting, and then glued the patterened paper on it with gluegel and then ran it through the cuttlebug again. That was a big fail!! Threw it in the bin and then tried again :) This time doing it differently, and it turned out really nice :)

The card when it is closed.

And the card when it's open :)

I was watching Create and Craft a few weeks ago (what a surprise) and there I saw this Hunkydory card with an owl in a tree and when you opened and closed the card, the owl would appear and disappear! It was so much fun, so I wanted to recreate that card as a x-mas card. Well, that took at least 5 hours of trying to figure out how to do it, but the end result is really great!!

Here you see the front of the card and a little bit of the inside opening.

A little more open.

And open all the way!! Tadaaaaaaaa, lovely snowman :):)

Myomie and little pettingzoo.

For my mum, sis and aunt!! Here is Myomie in full make-up, hair and outfit for her dress rehearsal for next weeks performance with Danville's Street Funk streetdance!! They will be performing in the middle of towncentre for the "turning on the x-mas lights" event!! So excited, and she looks so amazing :)

And here are our little furry friends that ian brought home:

This little girl is called Bandit.

And this little fluffy is called Ellie.

This poorly young man is called Gizmo.

This blurry picture is of Mam Rabbit, sho does not have a proper name. I think she might be stuck with beeing called Mam Rabbit.

And last but by no means least, our other young man called Nightburn.


Simple x-mas

I found a moment of time to put something on my blog again. I went on Holiday 3 weeks ago, and came back on monday. Ofcourse, as things are with holidays, there is so much work to be done, but now I have a little moment, before I have to go out again.

When on holiday, I had a really productive 2 weeks!! I made 12 cards, all x-mas, and I love them all!! Over the next couple of weeks I will be showing them onhere. For now, a card I made a while back. It's a very simple x-mas card, but I really like it :)

Tilda is colored with Promarkers and Prismacolors. The Merry Christmas has been filled in with a quicky glue pen and glitters :) I really like that effect!

easel card with a difference

I was watching Create and Craft a few weeks ago (it's not that rare, I watch it almost every day), and the stuff they were showing wasn't my thing. However, there was a sample card I liked the idea of, so I recreated it and gave it my own little shwung!!

As you can see, it's the same idea, just that I cut out a bit with a die, and then used that same die as a frame to stand up, to hang my picture-thingy in!

Another one!

And because I so loved the previous card I showed, I made another one!

The front of the card, plain and simple!

And the inside of the card!! It's exactly the same card, just different colors, and it makes it look so different! Yes I love making these cards!

Xmas extravaganza

A few weeks ago I got an order in to make 10 big xmas cards. I can do xmas and I can do big!! So far I have 8 finished (thats where I have been hiding) and this is the first one:

The front of the card. Nothing special really, just a simple xmas card. Untill you open it:

I made an open book/box idea with a xmas tree in it made out of all these little branches I made with a punch. There are almost 2 A4 sheets punched in that tree!! Also made a little pocket to write the message in.

Here is a close-up of the tree. I used these amazing metalic beads my sister gave me a while back, to resemble baubles. I so love this card!
