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 ......
this friday we get the key to our new home. We are very happy and excited. 
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!

Hugs x

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.

Easter bunnies

Hi,

The recipe and step by step instructions for this yummy cake are on the cake blog.







 

The digital stamp is from pink cat studio, I colored the bunnies using Photoshop.
The papers and sticker sentiment are from Jillibean soup.

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:

Be unique

Hi,

Although I know that the stripe pattern on zebra's are unique to each individual, I made my next cards using that animal
in a group with one standing out of the crowd.

The image I used is a digital stamp from Pink petticoat. I colored it in Photoshop.
On the first card I made one zebra in fuchsia colour.
On the second card I made one zebra in negative.
Using the program paint I duplicated the digital image and placed it in rows and added the sentiments.




I would like to enter one of these cards in the following challenges:


Have a nice day and thanks for stopping by!
