2 postcards

Hello everyone,

Yesterday I received the new doggie stamps from Katzelkraft in the post. They are fabulous and I couldn't wait to mount them and use them.

I have made two postcards with them :






Both cards are gelli printed and both dogs were coloured with Copic Markers and cut out. 
I did add some washi tape to the top card and some background stamping to the bottom one. The sentiment are by Katzelkraft too. 

You will find the dogs HERE and HERE

Thank you for stopping by today !

Time waits for no man!

Hello everyone,

I have an art journal page to share today using the lovely new stamps by Visible Image. I love the alphabet stamps, there are more than one of certain letters so that makes is easy to stamp words like 'happy' etc. I stamped them a little wonky but you can line them up really well.



I used a mop up page from my gelli print stack. I really like these; sometimes they are even nicer than the proper prints. 
 I added some background stamping using Archival ink and the pink clocks were heat embossed with pink embossing powder by WOW. 



The letters are stamped on white paper, I then added the circles around them. There is a circle and a square in the set and the letters fit in there perfectly. I used a punch to cut them out. 


I like my words to be wonky so I stamped them wonky on purpose. I added some white dots with a white pen. 

That was it from me today ! 

I used all three new stamp sets for this page. You'll find them HERE.


You also still have time to play in our monthly challenge where the theme is 'Dimension'. I have put my letters spelling 'time' on dimensional tape so they stand out more.

Food !

Hello everyone,

Welcome to my blogpost for VivaLasVegaStamps!  today ! I have made a trio of ATC's to inspire you with and I hope you'll pick up your stamps and make something too !


And here's how I made them:



I started with a gelli print. This is a mop up page. 




I cut the page into three ATC's. There were some small pieces left which I will keep to use as collage material in another project. 




Next I added some stamping. I used VersaMark and WOW embossing powder and also Archival Ink in the colour Watering Can. 



I stamped all the images on book paper with Archival Ink. I always use the edges of the pages for the sentiments I am going to use. That way they have the same colour as the images. Next task is to cut everyone out. 



Having a look where I am going to place everything.



And here is the finished result. 





I hope you enjoyed this short tutorial. 

I have used the following stamps:

Daydreams

Hallo allemaal,
Hello everyone, 

Vandaag heb ik een kaart voor jullie.

I have a card to share today. I made this for my DT at Hobbycompleet De Duif. This fabulous stamp is by Carabelle Studio.


Het is een hele simpele kaart geworden. Ik heb de afbeelding op een stukje aquarelpapier gestempeld en daarna ingekleurd met Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Toen ik helemaal happy was met hoe het eruit zag het ik het woord Daydeams toegevoegd en het paneeltje op een kaart geplakt.

This was a very simple card to make. I stamped the image on watercolour card and coloured it in with Zig Clean Color Brush Markers. The sentiment is from a PaperArtsy set and was added after colouring. I then adhered the panel onto a white card. 


Ik heb de volgende materialen gebruikt:
I have used the following materials:

Neenah Aquarel papier (die papier is fantastisch ook voor Distress Oxides; en het is mooi wit)
                PaperArtsy ELB34
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers in de kleuren: 045-041-071-072-026-021-036-050-070-020-022-024
Leuk dat je er weer was ! Tot de volgende keer !

Art journal

Hello everyone,

This week starts a new challenge over at the Stampotique Designers' blog and the theme is "Stencil it". Also we have a collaboration with Eileen Hull this month. We got sent a few goodies by Eileen and one of them was her  'Heartfelt journal'. This is a die set to cut out the bits you need to make your own journal. We received the already cut out bits and I made this with it:


The book was put together first and then I added crackle paste through a flower stencil. I then painted it... Once that was all dry I inked the edges with Archival Ink and stencilled some more with white paint and a dot stencil. I added stamping and the little monster. He was stamped and coloured with Copics, cut out and glued on. 


I filled the book with paper and will use it for my journaling...


A close up of the crackle...

We always think we'll have time

Hello everyone,

Today I have a card to share which I made for Visible Image with their new stamps. I love them... so many possibilities.



I used one of my gelli prints. I love gelli prints... 
I stamped the clock on it first then added the birds. I added splatters and doodling in white and black and added some background stamping too. Lastly I stamped the sentiment on white card, matted it on black card stock and glued it to the card panel. Lastly I adhered the panel to a white card. 

I used the following stamps:

You and me

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my second post for the June challenge over at Country View Challenges.  The the theme is 'hearts' and it was chosen by the lovely Hazel.
Why not have a go yourself ! You could win 20 GBP to spend in the shop HERE. Just remember to read the RULES first!

I have made an art journal this time :



and here's how I made it:


I have to apologise as I got carried away and forgot to take photos of the start ! But what I did was use a crackle paste (Finnabair) and a stencil (UmWow Studio) to add the hearts to my pages. I was very impatient and dried this with my heat tool so there are not many crackles ! 
Next I painted the pages with gesso (2 layers) and when that was dry I put the stencil back and used 'Worn Lipstick' Distress Ink and a blending tool to add colour to the hearts. That's how far I got when I realised I had to take some photos ! 


Next I added some script with a stamp (PaperArtsy ENS11) and Grey Archival Ink (Watering can). 


Next I stamped the rabbits (Crowned bunnies by Crafty Individuals)  on some pattern paper from an old 6 x 6 pack by My Mind's Eye called 'Lost & Found'. I added some shading with a coloured pencil and then cut them out. 


I added them to my page. 



Here are some close ups... and after adding some shading and a sentiment (Tim Holtz CMS219) the pages were finished !
