InStyle Stamps December Sketch

Hi all!

Only just a little over 23,5 hours till 1st January 2011. Wow!
So why don't you play with the last sketch of the year 2010?! There are still some days left to play along. It's a fun sketch and all the details can be found overhere at the Instyle stamps blog.
Would love to see your name there :)

Anyways... here's my take on the sketch. I just looooooooooove the image of "momlove", which, I think, is very, very versatil. I used it for a nice Valentine's card which can be used for a lot of people, not only mothers.

Well... here's my card:

And a detailphoto, where you can see all the glitter on the girl's dress and socks:

I would like to say a big "Thank you!" to everyone and I hope you will end 2010 and begin 2011 in a safe way (hee... we must craft eh?!) and hope you will be celebrating this with your loved ones around you.

Take care!

Instyle Stamps Gingerbread house

Hi there!

Only 1 day and I will be celebrating Christmas Evening with the child's choir I play flute with. I really can't believe it, as it feels like just yesterday it was Christmas Evening 2009.

Anyways... here I've got another Christmascard for 2011 for you :)

Made it with the Instyle Stamps digital image "Gingerbread House". Don't you just love the candy canes? I sure do!

Here's the card I made:

Thank you so much for coming.

Have yourself a very, very merry Christmas! Take care!

DWYT Sketch # 65

Where did time went to?? These days are flying by way too fast.
Today it's time for a new DWYT Sketch. You can find the sketch at the DWYT-blog.

Here's the card I created with the sketch.

And a detailphoto...

Though I must admit I turned the sketch a bit and instead of the square I used a circle, thought it would be better for one of my 2011 Christmascards :)
Oh yes, you read it correctly: 2011 Christmascards! As I've already sent my cards almost 2 weeks back, I'm planning forward and since I'm in the middle of Christmas spirit, I thought it would be easier to already make some cards, so I don't have to start in the middle of Summer :)

Anyways... hope you will enjoy your day today!

Thank you for coming and see you later! :)

DWYT Sketch #64

Finally... here's my contribution to DWYT-sketch #64 of this week.
It was an easy one to make really.
Used some stamps from a Dutch company (I don't normally work with Dutch stamps and other craftythings... sorry :)) and this card came out alright if I may say so.
Used SU ink, ribbon and cardstock (love this Christmascolorcombo!).

Anyways... here's my card:

Please go to the DWYT-blog for more inspiration from the DT and you can also participate, it would be nice! :)

Thank you for coming over, enjoy your Holiday Season!

See you later.

Hi all!

Winterholidays are finally here... and Christmas is just around the corner, only one more week to go... Time flies by way too fast this year!

At the Instyle Stamps blog we have some amazing candy to give away. Please read all about it on the blog :)

These days Instyle Stamps is showing the A Day in the Life images and they are gorgeous to use on projects!
I made a wishlistholder, so you can go shopping with it. Even a pen is enclosed.
I used the image "Mom and Daughter shopping".
This is what I made of it...

Magnolia Christmas Winter Stampkit 2010 card

Oh my!
The mailmen overhere striked the last week for a couple of days. I luckily got some mail and yesterday, Saturday the mailman also delivered the newest Magnolia Stampkit *whoowhoo!!*
It's a great kit, very birthday-themed, but the stamp I used for this project, is also perfect for other projects, so I made a Christmascard with it.

Also used a Magnolia die-cut. Wow! They're expensive (but got it in a sale :)), but it really cuts awesome! Very clear!
Plus I also used my, almost can't craft without them these days, nestabilities for the retangles at the image.


Here's a detailphoto of my project where you can see the stickles I used:

And here's the Christmascard I made with the stamp from the Winterkit:

I totally love the new kit!
Have to get myself another year's subscription as I'm sure they will be releasing some more awesome stamps in 2011.

Thank you so much for coming!
See you later :)

DWYT Sketch #63

Hi there!

It's Thursday, so time for another DWYT-sketch.
This time the sketch is made by me :)
Hope you will like it. I was inspired by a stampset I received last month. I just knew I had to make a card something like this with it, but first I made the sketch. Just knew exactly what I wanted and it worked out quite alright if I may say so *lol*

The stamps are so very versatile to use. You can use one, two, three, etc. Just what you like :)
Really liked making the card.'s the card:

And here's the sketch I made:

Hope you are inspired by the sketch and my card, so you can play along at the DWYT-blog.
It would be nice if you could play with all of us.

So there just couldn't be any better challenge like this week's: SNOWFLAKES.

This is the card I made:

Made the snowflakes with SU and Martha Stewart punches. I just love them! Finished them with some stickles.

Teddy Stampers Challenge: Christmas bears + DT Call

Hi there and welcome to another Teddy Stampers Challenge :)
This time the theme is "Christmas bears". Oh yes, only 21 more days to go till Christmas Eve. Time does fly fast if you have fun in life.

I made this card with the lovely LOTV stamp I bought in London last September. Oh, I love that city and I just loved the fair I went to. Loads of other stamps than we have overhere in The Netherlands, but also a lot of the same articles.

Anyways... here's my card.

Don't you just love that image??!! I sure do! It's just a sweetie!
I made this card with a sketch I found a while back. Really have no idea where I found it, but if you know, please let me know and I will give some credit.
Back to the challenge... we have a fab sponsor this time: Elisabeth Bell. And as a former GuestDesigner for the DigiBellsDT I can tell you Elisabeth Bell is such a sweet person!
But that's not all... she creates the most fabulous stamps and digi-images. You really should visit her overhere.

All of the Teddy Stampers DT have received the digi image Eden's 2nd Christmas.
I already used this image when I was on the DigiBellsDT, and you can find my card overhere.

Now what are you waiting for?? Get creating and hop on over to the Teddy Stampers blog for more inspiration from the fellow DT-members.

And did you know the Teddy Stampers challengeblog is holding a DT-call?? Check out all the details overhere.
It's a great challengeblog, so you really should give it a try :)

See you later!
