OMG!! It's been a fantastic and very, very creative day for my blog today :)

Please go overhere for the following projects:

Instyle Stamps Blog Hop!


It's that time of the month again... time for the Instyle Stamps Blog Hop!!
Thank you sooooooooo much for visiting!!

Right now, if it's correctly you've came here by visiting Kerry's blog. If not, please start at the Instyle Stamps blog so you don't miss out all the fantastic projects the DT has come up with this month :)

The theme of the bloghop is "Fall/Autumn" and when I think of it, I think of all the fab colors nature is giving us, plus loads of rain... now, that's something I really don't like, specially as I go to work on my bike (oh yeah, I just can't live without my bike!).

So it was quite easy which image to use for this hop... it's.... Raindrop Chloe! She's available since today in the Instyle Stamps store.

Please enjoy the project I made. I made a little cheer-up item for someone who's under the weather, not feeling alright as I'm noticing a lot of people getting sick these days. So I included some handkerchiefs to get better.
Hope you will enjoy it, here it is...

Some details of my project:

Inside this, there's a little space for your own message.

As you might know, the ISS DT has been sponsored this week by Glue Arts and wow... I've never worked with their products, but I just loooooooooooooooove them, specially the gluetape gun.

Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge "Diamonds & Pearls"

That was the first thing I thought about when I thought of this challengetheme.

I used Lacey, think she's just perfect for this challenge.
I don't own any diamonds or pearls (like the Prima marketing ones), so I used some baubles. Can't live without them!

Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge: Fall colors

The last couple of weeks it has been terribly raining overhere. That bad you almost forget it's still Summer.
But after Summer comes Fall and I just looooove the rich colors of this season: brown, green, red, yellow, orange.
It wasn't hard to make this card when the Wags'nWhiskers challenge said: "Fall colors".

So here we have my card.
I used Nichola (you can buy her here if you're from USA/Canada or you can buy her here if you're from another part of the world).

And a detail of the card:

Thanks for coming.
Don't forget to take a look at the Wags'nWhiskersblog for more inspiration and for playing with us :)

DWYT Sketch 50

Hi there!

It's time for a new sketch at the DWYT-blog.
This time it was my turn to make a sketch and wow... it was really hard. Not actually the thinking, but making it in an editing program. It cost me some minutes (let's just say it took a bit longer...) to finally understood how it worked to make a sketch.
I normally draw my sketches in my sketchbook, but I wanted to make one in Photoshop as I see those cleanlooking sketches all over the internet. Ok, that was pretty difficult.... Then I started in Paint... ok, this went all wrong... Another try with Photoshop... not a good idea.. another try with paint...hmmm... it was ok, but didn't work the way I planned, ok, let's try Photoshop again... Wrong idea :)
So I ended up making the sketch in paint and now I know how to make more sketches :)

Here it is...

I wanted to use a specific stampset, so I based my sketch on that stampset.
Here's the card:

Cardstock, patterned papers, ink and stamp: Stampin'Up; Baubles: StampingBella

Thanks for coming over... let's see what you can make with the sketch :)
Really am curious :)

It's pretty busy today with posts. This time it's time for the Instyle Stamps Color Challenge.

Anyways, here's the card I made with Janice. I just really like her. Ready for school.

Please check out the blog for all the creations the other DT members made. They are again awesome!

Instyle Stamps sketch September

It's the first Wednesday of the month, so another sketchchallenge over at the Instyle Stamps blog :)

It was a hard one this time, specially as we had to make a T-slide card. New to me, it really cost me some reading over and over, but I managed alright ;)
The instructions of the T-slide card are from Splitcoaststampers.

Anyways... here's the card I made with Tracy.
It's such a lovely digi image!

This is the card after you've pulled the thing on the right side :)

I sure will be making more cards like this T-slider. It's just a present to send someone :)

Thanks for visiting... enjoy your day/evening :)
