For this card I really needed a turtle, so I looked for a picture on the internet because I don't have a turtle stamp. The ink from the printer is different than normal stamping ink, so it was not easy to color the turtle (with distress ink). The hearts are made with a punch from Fiskars.

Voor dit kaartje had ik een schildpad nodig, maar aangezien ik geen schildpad stempel heb vond ik dit prentje op het internet. Aangezien de inkt van de printer wat anders is dan de stempelinkt was het niet zo simpel op deze in te kleuren (met distress inkt). De hartjes heb ik uitgeduwd met een pons van Fiskars.

Make A Wish


I'm back from my vacation in Spain, it was really nice (and HOT :D ) !
I made this card after I bought a T-shirt: the girl and the black paper were part of the price tag.

Ik ben terug van een fantastische vakantie in Spanje !
Het kaartje heb ik gemaakt nadat ik een T-shirt heb gekocht: het meisje en zwarte papier waren een onderdeel van het prijskaartje.

Sweet & Simple




The four cards I made are really simple. I used my Fiskars punch each time and added a little text and stamp. They are really fun to make :)

Be strong - roses

I made this card for someone who recently lost a special person in her life. I think that cards like this don't need a lot of paper or stamps, it has to be simple.
The roses are coloured with Distress ink and water. The text -sterkte- means 'be strong'. I stamped it with black Ancient Page ink and the background is coloured with Antique linen Distress ink. I made the borders a bit darker withWalnut stain.

Hidden Message


The card I made today is based on the Focus Friday folded card from K. Werner .
You have to split up your sentence in three parts: mine is 'Hip Hip Hoera'. (Which is the same as Hip Hip Hooray). I stamped two pieces of paper. The first one is a white paper with butterflies I coloured with Distress ink and water. The second paper is made with a flower stamp, VersaMark ink, embossing powder and Distress ink. The borders are punched with a Fiskars punch. To hold the card together there are 2 brads and a little cord.

Close Together

The cute birds (Artemio) are stamped with Royal Purple StazOn ink and coloured with Distress ink and water. The footsteps are also stamped with this ink. The text is stamped with red from the Colorbox Chalk on white paper, then I used blue Decorating chalks. As finishing touch I used my corner chomper.

This is a folded card (idea from K. Werner: http://www.kwernerdesign.com/blog/?p=6363). The heart is a metal form you can buy and put your own paper in. (you als have other kind of shapes). In the middle I put a brad. The little hearts under the big one are punched out.

Hidden Flowers


This stamp is from the Penny Black collection. Those kind of stamps don't need a lot of extra decoration. I coloured it with Distress Ink and water. The punch is from Fiskars. On the red background I also stamped some little butterflies with VersaMark. When you do it like this the colour of your stamp will have te same colour as your paper, only a bit darker. The 'Happy Birthday' text is made of pearls.
