After watching a create and craft show, I saw this card idea and wanted to recreate it. As it turned out, it's one of those cards that is ok, but I am not jumping for joy over it.

A Sue Wilson card

As I said in my previous post, Sue Wilson is such an amazing crafter/card maker!! Her ideas are so good, it's unbelievable! And sometimes, just sometimes, it's just wonderfull to recreate one of her cards, with a little idea of my own.

I used one side of my embossibility, created a border out of 2 borders, and used some shapes to create a snowflake idea! Isn't it pretty and simple??

Sometimes it's not a good thing to watch create and craft, and especially Sue Wilson and her Spellbinders shows.
She is always using embossibilities. and it looks so stunning! So I gave in, and bought one myself, and I love it!!

It's a very simple card, but I love the colors together!!

Little boys birthday

My Ian's sister asked if I could make a card for her grandsons upcoming birthday. He was going to be 5, and what do you make for a 5 year old boy?
So I got my trusty cricut out, my gypsy and looked through my A Child's Year cartridge, and found this cowboy! perfect!!!

I used a Marianne Design die, that is supposed to be icycles, cut it out of green and turned it upside down to create grass! I olso used one of the new dies from my new spellbinders set (ironworks) which made the perfect border!

A long time ago I saw this stampset in Hobbycraft (my least favourite hobby shop) but found it really expensive. Then last christmas there was a 70% discount on it, and I could not resist buying the stampset! Isn't it the cutest little sentiment?

Staf Wesenbeek

A few weeks back Anita from my craftclub brought a cardmaking kit she had bought somewhere. It was a Staf Wesenbeek set, and it looked really nice! Me beeing me, I don't like buying kits that often (although I sometimes do, just to get a template!), but I did wanna recreate the cardshape. And so I did!

Isn't it pretty with the white and pink? I love the color combination. Too bad you can't really see how the card works on the picture.

shrink plastic

I love shrink plastic ... I love the magic of it .... I could do it all day long and still make a little happy dance after hours, everytime something shrinks!

I made a boxcard (that will fold flat in an envelope!) and cut a lovely diecut out of shrink plastic to hang at the front!

Ofcourse it's not very clear to see on this picture as I used a seethrough shrink plastic, but it shows you the boxcard in it's full!! And thanks to Sue Wilson, and her always ongoing ideas and insparation when it comes to spellbinders dies, I used a cornerdie to create some interrest to the sides of the box!

And here a better picture of the shrink plastic die! I also stamped on it with stazon before I shrunk the whole thing! Mind you though, it was very tricky to get this cut, and most of the little bits I had to handcut afterwards with a knife! So it wasn't just as easy as it looks :)
