SAF Challenge #3: Limited supplies


This is my last project for today. Really tired at the moment and tomorrow there's a brand new day :)
For this challenge we were challenged to use a floral stampset (yeah.. I used Rosie Posie again!), some colors of cardstock, some ink, ribbon and buttons.
I took away the buttons. Love these kind of challenges. Less defenately is more!
And this is the card I made:

Thanks for coming over today and hope to see you around tomorrow... got some more projects to do ;)

SAF Challenge 2: Mini Album technique

Hi there *again*  LOL

Back with another project made today, a mini-album.
We could choose between several kind of mini-albums and I choose the one with the tag and library envelope.
Made it a Christmasone, so I can easily put my photos on the backside of the tags. No hussle, very easy.
So here you have it... Scraplifted a lot and even this ribbon was made after watching the video.

Thanks again for coming and hope to see you later on. More in the making ;)

SAF Challenge #1 Ribbon technique

Hi there *again*

First "official" challenge completed: Ribbon technique. Really had fun using this technique. As I wanted to use Ashley's technique, I didn't want it with a flower, but just a straight line on my card.

And this is what I made with the technique...

Used the same colors as last post, same goes for the stampset, exept for the leaves and sentiment.
Ok, off for another challenge.

Thanks for coming over and see you later on! :)

Make-n-Take challenge #1

Hi there and am back :)

Here's my take on the PTI Make-n-Take. It was time to use my Rosie Posie-set for the first time ever.
Can you believe it?? I've been in love with this set for quite a while now and wow.... after using it for the first time I'm totally in looooooooooove with it.
It's just so simple making a background as a cardbase.
You will defenately see Rosie Posie a lot more today :)

Used a fave colorcombo of mine at the moment... very tropical :)
Yeah... I already love today. Thanks PTI!!

Now I'm off creating again... ribbon is next. See you later!

So today it's ME-time. Working from 1 pm CET till around 2 am CET tomorrowmorning with things I looooooooove: Stamps, papers and ink.
This year it's an online event, so just perfect for people all across the world. Already seen people from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Denmark and USA online, WOW!!
I will be celebrating today with my 2 cats who are still sleeping *whoop whoop*
Check back later today for the projects I made. Thanks!

Happy Camping! :)

Spectrum Noir blog hop Christmas in July meets Basic Grey Challenges Things with wings

Hi there and welcome to a new Spectrum Noir blog hop.

The theme is "Christmas in July" and ohhhhhhhh.. I just loooooooove making Christmascards all year long, so this is just perfect for me :)
As I was browsing through my stamps, this stamp was also the perfect fit for this fortnight's BasicGrey Challenge: Things with wings.
Hi en welkom bij een nieuwe Spectrum Noir bloghop.
Het thema is "Kerst in juli" en ohhhh... Ik houd ervan om het gehele jaar kerstkaarten te maken (zoals ook hier op m'n blog te zien is ;)), dus dit is gewoon perfect voor mij :)
Toen ik mijn stempels aan het bekijken was, waren deze gebruikte stempels ook zeer geschikt voor BasicGrey Challenges: Things with wings (dingen met vleugels).

A few members of the Spectrum Noir team have gotten together to celebrate Christmas in July!  We have an inspiration-filled blog hop today, along with a few great prizes!  If you have arrived here from Suzanne's blog, you are in the right place.  If not, pop over to the Spectrum Noir blog so you don't miss a thing!
Een aantal Spectrum Noir DT-leden zijn bij elkaar gekomen om Christmas in July te vieren! We hebben een super bloghop vandaag, tesamen met een geweldige prijs! Als je bent gekomen via Suzanne's blog, dan ben je op de juiste plek aanbeland. Zo niet, ga even naar het Spectrum Noir blog, zodat je niets zult missen!

And this is the project I made. It was sooooooooo hard to come up with the perfect stamp, but thought it was time to use these ones again :)
So here you have my Christmas in July project...
En dit is het project dat ik heb gemaakt. Het was zooooo lastig om de juiste stempel te vinden, maar dacht dat deze weer aan wat inkt toe was :)
Dus hier is mijn Christmas in July project...

I used the following Spectrum Noir markers:
Ik heb de volgende Spectrum Noir markers gebruikt:
Skin/huid: FS 1,2,3,4,8, CR3 (cheeks)
Hair/haar: GB1,4,6,7
Clothes/kleding: DR1,2,3,4, EB2
NOEL: BT1,3,4,5, EB2
Ground/grond: EB1,2
Shadows/schaduw: BT1,2

I wanted the red and BT-markers having a bit of a brownish color in it, so I went over those colors with EB2. It was just perfect :)
Ik wilde dat de rood- en BT-markers een beetje bruintinten kregen, dus ik ben met de EB2-marker over deze kleuren heen gegaan. Het was gewoon perfect :)

We hope you've been checking out the Spectrum Noir blog - it is full of great tutorials, techniques, and other projects from our design team.  If you haven't been over there, go take a look!  Before we get to the rest of the hop today, let's have a little fun.  How about a prize?  Spectrum Noir is going to award one lucky winner two sets of six markers, a pack of Crafter's Companion Ultra Smooth Premium White card stock (perfect for coloring!), and an adorable stamp called All Wrapped Up, from the new Mulberry Wood line.
