BG Challenges: Easter 2012 featuring Magnolia

Hi there and happy Saturday to you all!

It was Spring last week, but the last couple of days it's grey and cold! But hopefully this Magnolia Eastercard will bring some warmth and sunshine :)

Today it's time for another BasicGrey Challenge and the theme is "Easter".
Made it with a BasicGrey Picadilly 6x6 paperpad. Love the colors of it!
I couldn't resist using a Magnolia on the card. Love them a lot, but for some reason the Easterstamps aren't among my faves. But well... I like this one, reminds me of my childhood.. painting eggs, hide them and search for them in the livingroom.

But you're here for the card, so here it is...

Thanks so much for coming over! Hope to see you again soon :)
Please visit the BasicGrey Challengesblog for more inspiration... wow... the DT have outdone themselfs... beautifull creations!!

CAS: Happy birthday PTI

Hi there and happy Wednesday!

Oh wow... I just looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooove this PTI stampset of the leaves a lot!!
Already made some Christmascards with it as well :) Received it about 2 weeks ago, but just can't stop playing with it!
Even though you have to line-up the images, they are so easy to work with and the people I've shown them to, really love them and think they are store-bought cards (oh... I really like that, but also don't as some people don't believe me I've stamped them...hmmm... ah well...hehe).

Here's a birthdaycard I made with one of my fave sentimentstamps and (one of my) fave (non-Christmassy) stampsets:

Thanks so much for coming over every time! :) Luv ya!!

Magnolia Christmas Tilda card

Hi there and happy Sunday!

Today I like to show you a Christmas card I made with one of my Magnolia Christmas Tilda's. Just love this image and think she's sooooooooo sweet :)
Even though the temperature is getting higher every day, I still make Christmascards and will do this every year. It keeps the stress away ;)

Hi en happy zondag!
Vandaag wil ik een kerstkaartje laten zien die ik met één van m'n Magnolia kerstTilda's heb gemaakt. Vind deze stempel geweldig :)
Hoewel de temperatuur met de dag stijgt, blijf ik vrolijk werken aan de kerstkaarten en zal dit blijven doen. Het houdt de stress weg aan het eind van het jaar ;)

Thanks for coming over today and hope to see you later! :)

CAS on Tuesday

Hi there!

Here's another CAS card from me. I felt soooooooooo lucky when I received these stamps and couldn't wait playing with it last weekend after receiving them Friday.
Unfortunately the occasion why I made this card isn't a good one. Wanted to let a person know I'm feeling sorry for her and her family/friends, but hope her light will shine along her family and friends. Just tragedy all over.

Anyways... here's the card...

Thanks for coming over and hope to see you later! :)

Christmas in March: a lift challenge

Hi there on this Sunday in March.

Only a couple of days and Spring is officially here, can't wait for some higher temperatures.
But as the title says.... Christmas in March.

I made 2 new Christmascards for this year's stash. Very easy to make, but such a great effect!
Think I will make these more and give them to people as a birthdaypresent so they can send them.

Hi en welkom op deze zondag in maart.
Nog een paar dagen en de lente is officieel gestart, ik kan niet wachten tot we weer wat hogere temperaturen krijgen. Want wat was het heerlijk afgelopen donderdag!
Maar zoals de titel zegt... Kerst in Maart.
Ik heb 2 nieuwe kerstkaarten gemaakt voor m'n kerstkaartenbak. Makkelijk te maken, maar een geweldig effect (if I may say so *lol*)!
Ik denk dat ik er meer van deze ga maken en aan mensen geef als verjaardagscadeautje, zodat zij de kaarten kunnen versturen.

Anyways... here's the first card:
Maar goed... hier is de eerste kaart:

And both cards:
En beide kaarten:

Thanks for coming over and hope to see you again!
Got some more posts planned for this week :)
Bedankt voor het langskomen en graag tot een volgende keer!
Ik heb nog meer posts gepland staan voor deze week :)

Basic Grey challenges: Mother's Day/Girlie

Good morning!

Thanks for visiting my blog. It's Saturday and it's been 2 weeks since the last Basic Grey challenge, so it's time for a new one and it's called "Mother's Day/Girlie".
I choose for the Girlie theme, but the image is also ok for a Mother's Day card ;)

Ohhhhhhhh... I bought this stamp in London last year and never inked it up, so it was time to do so and here's the result :)

I used the "Hello Luscious" 6x6 BasicGrey paperpad, perfect for girlie cards :)

Thanks for visiting me, hope to see you again later.
Please go to the BasicGrey challengesblog to see the creations the other DT-members made AND to participate yourself ;)

WnW challenge: Go Green

Hi there and welcome to another Wags'nWhiskers challenge!
This time the theme is "The luck of the Irish", we like to see green on your card.
I made it a really CAS-card, not too many layers, not too many embellishments. Just a stamped image, cardstock and a piece of ribbon.

And when you put that all together, you get this as a result:

Thanks so much for coming over.
Please go to the Wags'nWhiskers blog as well, so you can participate.

Thanks again and see you later! :)

Special Digi image from Sylvia Zet

Hi there!

I've been a great admirer of Sylvia Zet since being in the DT of Spesch Stamps (you really should visit the store and blog!!). Spesch Stamps was the first (as far as I know) shop putting Sylvia's designs in the spotlight.
She's got the talent of making stamps look cute, but realistic.
I'm part of a Dutch cardmaking-group called "Kaarten maken with Tiets" and they asked Sylvia to make a special image *whoowhoo!!*
This image will not be avaliable at this moment, but a bit later, so you'll just have to wait till that time *sorry!*
Ik ben een bewonderaar van Sylvia Zet sinds dat ik in het DT van Spesch Stamps zat (je moet zeker de winkel en het blog even bezoeken!!). Spesch Stamps was de eerste (zover ik weet) winkel die Sylvia's designs in de spotlight zette.
Sylvia heeft een talent om stempels schattig, maar realistisch te laten lijken.
Ik ben lid van de groep "Kaarten maken met Tiets" en zij hebben Sylvia gevraagd om een speciale digi te maken *whoowhoo!!*
Dit plaatje is niet beschikbaar op het moment, maar een beetje later, dus nog heel even geduld als je hem ook wilt hebben *sorry!*

The deadline for this image is 16th March, so I'm still in time showing you the card made with the adorable "Amy".
And here it is...
De deadline voor het project is 16 maart, dus ik ben nog op tijd om jullie mijn kaart te laten zien met de schattige "Amy".
En hier is m'n kaartje...

And a detailphoto...

Thank you so much for coming over. Hope to see you around later this week :)
Bedankt voor het langskomen. Ik hoop je weer later deze week te mogen begroeten :)

Magnolia Winter Tilda with snowflake

Hi there!

It's been a while since my last post, but I'm back :)
Have been creating a lot and those creations will be on my blog later this week. Uhhmmm... not all, as I also scrapbook, but don't put those layouts etc. online.

Today I like to show you a wintercard with one of the newest exclusive Magnolia Stamps: Winter Tilda with snowflake. Have this stamp for a couple of months and love it! It's one of my faves.
Here's the card:

Het is een tijdje geleden sinds mijn laatste post, maar ik ben er weer :)
Heb behoorlijk wat projecten gemaakt en die zullen later deze week online komen. Uhhmm... niet alles, want ik scrap ook nog, maar zet layouts etc. niet online.
Vandaag wil ik jullie een winterkaart laten zien met één van de nieuwe exclusieve Magnolia stempels: Winter Tilda met sneeuwvlok. Heb deze stempel al een aantal maanden en vind hem geweldig! 1 van m'n favorieten.
Hier is m'n kaartje:


Used some seambinding I have for sale in my shop and my copics. Can't live without them! :)
Heb wat seambinding gebruikt die ik in m'n winkeltje verkoop en m'n copics. Kan niet zonder! :)

BasicGrey Challenge: Spring Photo inspiration

This is my 2nd post today...Please scroll down or click here for the MCSC challenge!! Thanks!! :)

Hi there and welcome again!! :)

This time it's time for another Basic Grey challenge. We're inspired by a Spring Photo you can find at the challengeblog.
When I saw this photo, I knew I wanted to use this image. This is one of my alltime fave stamps I have (and yes... I have a lot ;)). Think it reminds me of when I was young, picking daisies and making a headthingy of them. Cherishing those days a lot! :)

Anyways... here's my card. Used BasicGrey Euphoria 6x6 paperpad to create it.

Thanks so much for coming over again!
Don't forget to go to the BasicGrey Challenges blog for more inspiration from the other DT-members and your chance to play with us :)
Hope to see you later!

MCSC-Challenge: Één

Hi there!

Het is officieel... de eerste challenge met het MCSC-DT is er! *whoowhoo*
De challenge is "Eén".
Miranda's zoon viert zijn eerste verjaardag, dus wat is er een betere manier om op deze manier een challenge te beginnen.

It's official.... the first challenge with the MCSC-DT has arrived! *whoowhoo*
The challenge is called "Eén", or, in English "One".
Miranda's son is celebrating his first birthday, so what better way to start a challenge.

Voor mij was het een behoorlijke challenge, aangezien ik een kaart in gedachten had, maar ik niet de perfecte #1 kon vinden...
Dus de plannen werden gewijzigd. Terwijl ik door m'n chipboardstash heen ging, vond ik wat BG-materiaal MET een #1, dus die heb ik als mal gebruikt om deze uit roze vilt te knippen.

For me it was a challenge as I has a card in mind, but couldn't find the perfect #1 stamp, chipboard, etc. not even in my awesome HUGE stash
So I had to change plans. While going through my stash of chipboard I found some BG-naked elements WITH a #1, so I used it to cut the number out of pink felt.

And here you have it...

Ik heb wat bling toegevoegd en een tekststempel. Precies goed voor verschillende gelegenheden.
Dus daar hebben jullie het... mijn eerste kaart als DT-member van MCSC.
Ga even naar het MCSC-blog voor meer leuke inspiratie van het DT en hopelijk doe je gezellig mee :)

Added some bling to the bottom of it and a sentiment stamp. Perfect for those "one year"-celebrations (birthday, wedding, etc. etc.)

So there you have it, my first card as a DT member of MCSC.
Please check out the MCSC-blog for more inspiration from the DT and hope you will play along with us :)

Thanks for coming over and see you later!

Anyways.. here's the card!

WnW Challenge: Spring Break

Hi there and a very warm welcome to you all!

It's time for another Wags'nWhiskers Challenge *whoowhoo!!*
This time it's called "Spring Break", you can think anything with that in mind.

I used the gorgeous stamp Rhiannon (you can buy her here for USA and Canada and here for the rest of the world).
It's one of my fave WnW stamps. You can use here all year through... also made Christmascards with this stamp. Love it when you can use your stamps for all different kind of occasions.

Ah well... back to topic ;)
I used some Spring-colors. Love it when nature blooms again after the winter and seeing all those fresh colors makes me want the sun shining a lot.
And is sitting there on a leaf... having a break ;)

And here you have my card:

Thanks so much for coming over. Hope to see you again soon :)

ABC Challenge: K for Kraft

Hi there!

It's the 1st of the month, so time for another ABC Challenge.
This time the lovely Patty choose the theme: K for kraft.

Made another CAS-card. It was inspired by cards I've seen in a shop in London last September, that one was also made of kraft and very, very CAS as well. Can't remember the maker of the card, but I really was inspired by it a lot!

So here you have it... The sentiment says "Thank you". Needed some of these cards.

I stamped the image with stazon on the kraftpaper, colored it with my Derwents, cut it out and put it on some 3d-tape.
The set is the newest stampset I recently bought at a great discounter :)

Anyways.... thanks so much for coming over! Hope to see you again soon.
Hop on over to the ABC-Challengeblog for more inspiration from the DT!
