Bird day

Hi,

Another blog post this wednesday to share with you a card I made using this weeks sketch at Cas(e) this sketch.


Here is my entry:



The bird is a digital stamp from tiddly inks, for the birds.
I colored it in Photoshop and also added the text in the piece of paper that the bird is holding up.
The twine is from whimsy farm twine.

Thanks for the visit. Have a great day.

Hugs
Henriëtte.

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.
I'm entering this card in these challenges:

This free digital is one of my favorites.

Thanks so much for the visit.
Have a great day!

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:

Moving

Hi,

Just a few more days and then we move to our new home.
We have been painting, laying floors, packing stuff, and decorating these last weeks and finally it is almost done.

Here are some picture from our new house, I hope you like.
One wall in the kitchen is yellow, one wall in the living room is chocolate brown.
It is a new build house with a new kind of climate system, floor heating and cooling. With solar panels on the roof, so very "green".














There is still a lot to do. But the house has a real good feel.
Until next time, then hopefully we are settled in.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs,
Henriëtte.

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.

Hippity Hoppity

Hi,

I've made a one layer card with an Easter theme. One layer cards are not easy to make, I think.
It's difficult to create the right and CAS look.

For this card I used a digital stamp from Pink cat studio. Cute hopping bunnies.
I did the coloring in Photoshop and printed the image directly on the cardstock.
The sentiment I made in Word using a fun font. Added some twine.


I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
