Stand Tall

Hello, I hope you're enjoying your weekend.

When I first saw the new "flirty flamingo" image at pink petticoat I just had to have it.
It is so cute.
I used one on my next card.


I colored the image using Photoshop, the sentiment I printed on glitter paper.
This weeks sketch at case this sketch was my inspiration for the lay-out.

Love the simple pleasures

Hello,

  This is this weeks sketch at case this sketch.


This is my take on the sketch. 


The stem and leaves are stamped. The rose is a (one hole) button.
The sentiment is from an old jillibean soup card kit. I do like that sentiment and the colors together also.

I'm all shook up

Hi,

"I'm all shook up" is a song by my favorite artist ever since I was a young girl, Elvis Presley,
and also an appropriate title for a shaker card.


I made a shaker card, cut out a silhouette image of Elvis and made the sentiment in Word.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere

Hi,

This weeks CAS challenge theme at The Outlawz is "watermelon".
I wanted to create something different so after some browsing I decided to make a
watermelon cocktail card.

The cocktail drink is a free dingbat. I resized it in Photoshop and colored it in a watermelon color.
Then printed the cocktail and cut it.
The little melonpiece on the glass I cut from a fruity paperpad I had for many years, sorry don't know the brand.

I printed the sentiment directly on the cardstock in the same watermelon color as the cocktaildrink.
On the bottom I put a little stroke of green paper and also a piece of paper printed in the watermelon color (colorcode is FF3366).



Love the clean look and the fun sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed it.
Have a great weekend.

Another watercoloring card



Hi again

Another post from me today to share with you my second watercoloring card using Tim Holtz Distress Markers.

The boy stamp is from Mama elephant (in my heart).
The balloon stamp is from Simon Says stamp.
Sentiment from Verve stamps.

My previous watercoloring card turned out better I think, but that one isn't a birthday card
and this month's theme at Mama Elephant's blog is "watercoloring and birthdays".


So I'm entering the birthday card in this challenge:


Have a nice day and I appreciate your comments!


Hugs

Oh Happy day

Hi,

The blog title is in complete contrast with yesterday.
Yesterday was a sad day because we had to euthanize our cat Tara.
I had her for a long time, almost 20 years. A few years ago she got cancer in the nose and was treated, but it progressed during these last months and could not be treated again. So we had to make that sad decision, but we know that is was best for her.

This is her, she was quite a lady.


The title does refer to a card I made using lawn fawn paper "hello sunshine".

I used this weeks Tuesday morning sketch.





The cute girl is a stamp from mama elephant.
I stamped it on paper, then scanned it in my computer to color it in photoshop. I also used the matching creative cut.
Added some blue twine and sequins.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Cute just got Cuter

Hello,

This weeks CAS challenge at Outlawz challenges is "to the dawgz".
The doggie stamp I used on my CAS card is a freebie digital stamp from All dressed up.
Using Photoshop I changed the outline color to grey (I left the nose and eyes black) and added just a touch of pink on the scarf and the tiny heart.
I attached two little pink pom poms to a piece of twine.


It sure is a very cute stamp and also not a difficult card to make.

Mama Elephant

Hi and happy Sunday,

Last week I bought the sweetest stamp set (and matching creative cuts) called "in my heart from Mama Elephant. I ordered them in the UK because I could not find a wholesaler here in The Netherlands.

Mama Elephant also has a new challenge blog mama elephant and me.
The first challenge is this inspirational image.


I used the colors for the inspiration on my card.



I stamp the cute girl on paper, then I scanned it and transferred it to my computer and colored the image in photoshop. 
The background isn't quite the right color, unfortunately.
I cut out the circles using my cuttlebug. 
I'm sorry but I can't remember the manufacturer of the patterned paper. I have them for many years.
Then I stamped the sentiment.

I still feel that I do not have my mojo back and it is difficult to come up with a great card design.
Hopefully it will be better soon.

I would like to enter this card in these challenges:


Thanks so much for visiting.

Hugs
Henriëtte.

Hello

Hi,

It has been almost a month since my last post. We have been very busy moving.
Today we handed over the keys of our old home to the housing association.
We had a lot of work breaking down the extension on that house, but finally it's all over.

I had some time to make a card today.
I still haven't got my mojo back but I made a CAS card to enter in the Outlawz Challenge using a fruit or vegetable.

I made a colourful bright card using limes and alpha letters from Jillibean Soup and a few polymer clay nail decorations.



I would also like to enter this card in these challenges:

Happy Easter


HAPPY EASTER!!

Hi, 

It has been a while since my last post. I didn't make any cards lately. Just to little time.
I have been working full time since april 1 and ......

So in the next two months I won't have any time to craft :( 
To busy painting and decorating our new house and doing some things on the old one as well. 
If I have time I will show you some pictures of the new house and how things are progressing.

When we are settled I will have more time on my hands to make new cards.
I hope you still be following me!  I sure pop in from time to time to look at your great creations.

Have a nice day and until soon!

Chickensoup

Hello,

In March I was the guest designer at the Clean & Simple challenge group at Outlawz challenges.
It was fun to do.

This last week of March the theme is "Get well". If you would like to enter the challenge you are more than welcome!
I made a card using a funny digital stamp from Bugaboo stamps, chickensoup.


I colored the digital in Photoshop, the paper is from a previous Simon says stamp card kit.

I sure could use some chickensoup myself right now, cause I've got a bit of a cold and sore throat. :(
But is a beautiful spring day here in The Netherlands, so I'm going to sit in the garden as soon as I finished writing this blogpost and feel the sun on my face.

The sentiment I made in Word using a fun font. Added some twine.
