Our theme for this challenge is Friendship, and the image Unky drew is just perfect for it!

Jaylinn

Hi all!

Today is the first birthday of Jaylinn, the daughter from my husbands coworker. We were invited to her birthday party, but unfortunately we couldn't make it, so I created her a birthday card instead.
I accidentally found out Jaylinns mom asked who could make a Minnie Mouse cake for her, so I knew I had to make a Minnie Mouse card.

I used my Silhouette to cut out Minnie Mouse's head, and the letters. The bow is made with my We Are Memory Keepers Envelope punch board.
The polka dot paper is from Bo Bunny, and was in my stash for ages.
On the white panel behind Minnies head I used my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.

This was it for today, I hope you like it!
Happy Birthday Jaylinn!

Hugs, Sandra

CreaMiep - Met Pensioen

Hoi allemaal!!

Vandaag mag ik jullie weer wat shown op het CreaMiep blog.
Eind december is een lieve collega met pensioen gegaan, en ik heb voor haar een mooie kaart gemaakt. 

 Ik heb ervoor gekozen om de boekenmal van Dutch Doobadoo te gebruiken. Eerst heb ik deze overgetrokken op kraft cardstock, daarna op wit cardstock, en toen op het designpapier van Scrapberry, Summer Joy. Alle randjes zijn aangezet met Distress Ink Vintage Photo.


 De stempel die ik heb gebruikt is van Aurora Wings, en ze is gekleurd met alcoholmarkers die matchen bij het designpapier.


 Ik heb een takje met blaadjes uitgestanst, daaroverheen mijn tekst, en die heb ik afgewerkt met paarse roosjes 15mm, en witte sweetheart flowers.


 In het midden heb ik verschillende lintjes en kantjes op elkaar geplakt, alsof het een bladwijzer is. 



Dit was het voor vandaag, ik hoop dat ik jullie heb kunnen inspireren.

Liefs, Sandra

First, I want to wish everyone a happy new year! Wishing you and yours all the best, I hope you had a great time in 2015 and 2-16 will be even better!

And as it is the first of the month, a new challenge has started over at The East Wind. Our theme for this month is Flag on the Play, so we want to see banners, flags, pennants etc!

 The papers I used for my card are from Basic Grey, and I just love them. There are no full sheets left of my paper pad, only scraps! I inked all edges with Distress Ink Walnut Stain.


 The image I used is this month's newsletter freebie, isn't this one adorable? I used my Copic Markers again to color, and I used the following.
Polar bear: E40, E41, E43

Hair: E13, E15, E18
Reds: R24, R46, R89
Blues: B95, B97, B99
Whites: W00, W1, W3


 And of course no card from my hand without any flowers, so I added several from Wild Orchid Crafts.


The fishtail flags are all cut by hand, from the scraops of my Basic Grey paper pad. I added a strip of rhinestones on top of it.

This was it for today, i hope you like it! Please pop over to The East Wind and join our challenge!

Art by Mi Ran - Have a special birthday

Hi all!!

I wanted to share an extra project over at Art by Mi Ran today, so I am sharing here as well!
I just don't want to see any Christmas cards, or anything that has to do with snow atm, so I thought I'd make a bright and happy card!

 The papers I used are from Prima Marketing, and all the edges are inked with Distress Ink Walnut Stain. I used a doily from my stash, which I didn't ink at all.


 The image I used is Whimsy's Flo. I stamped her with Memento Angel Pink ink and colored her in No-Lines technique. This was the second ever time I did it, and I am quite happy with it! I used the following Copic Markers.
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E13, E93, E95
Hair: E40, E41, E43, E47
Dress: RV63, RV66, RV69
Flowers: RV52, RV55, Y21, Y26, V12, V15, G40, G43, G46


 I added some mesh and ribbon from a shop called Kimya. I also filled a glass vial with some pink glitter powder. The vial is also from Kimya.
The sentiment I used is from Whimsy Stamps too
To finish off my card, I added some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers.

This was it for today, I hope you all like it!

I wish you all a happy new year, and be safe, don't play with fireworks!!!

Art by Mi Ran - Snow globe

Hi all!!

First let me say that I hope your Christmas was great, and that you got everything you wished for! I had an awesome Christmas, spend it with family and friends.

Today I my turn to host the Art by Mi Ran blog, and I can't help but share the last Christmas project I did this year.

 I took a glass jar that used to contain vegetables, and cleaned it very well. I used some Dutch Doobadoo Gesso on the bottom inside and outside, to make it look like snow. After it dried, I added some powder snow in it.
 The image I used is called Eirwen, and I used my Copic Markers to color her.
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E13, E93, E95
Hair: E23, E25, E27
Dress: R24, R46, R89, R59
Cape: W5, W7, 100
Fur: W00, W1, W3
I made a snowman out of paper, with a tutorial from Annes paper creations. The hat from the snowman is a cut file from my Silhouette Cameo. Behind the snowman and the image is a tree made out of paper, also from a tutorial from Annes paper creations.
The lid is covered with a piece of snowblanket. I added some fake Christmas tree branches around it, and embellished it with some deco material from my own tree. I poked a hole in the lid and threadened some twine through it. I added a white rose from Wild Orchid Crafts, some stars en balls and some gold stamen from my stash.

This was it for today, I hope you like it!

CreaMiep - Kerstgroetjes van ons

Hoi allemaal!

Vandaag is het mijn beurt op het blog van CreaMiep. Ik zit met mijn hoofd helemaal in de kerstsferen, dus ik hoefde ook niet na te denken wat het thema van mijn projectje zou worden.

 Dit keer heb ik ervoor gekozen om een kraft tasje te pimpen, met wat papier uit mijn eigen voorraad. Ik heb alle randjes aangezet met Distress Ink Vintage Photo
De witte achtergrond is een vel cardstock, waar ik een winterse rand op heb gestempeld. Ik heb hiervoor Memento Toffee Crunch inkt gebruikt. 


 De stempel die ik heb gebruikt, is van Wee Stamps. Dit leuke meisje is ingekleurd met alcoholmarkers, die matchen bij het papier dat ik heb gebruikt. Ik heb haar met Memento Tuxedo black inkt op DCP papier gestempeld.


 De tekst stempel komt uit de najaarsset van CreaMiep, en is gestempeld met Memento Tuxedo black inkt.



Om mijn kaart af te werken, heb ik verschillende bloemen gebruikt, Cherry Blossom, Roosjes 15mm en Sweetheart flowers.


Dit was het weer voor vandaag, ik hoop dat jullie het leuk vonden!

Liefs, Sandra
