Happy Saturday! It's the third Saturday of the month and that means it is sketch challenge time over at the CRAZIES.
I took the liberty to change the sketch a bit, lol, you are free to do so if you need or want to, as long as you have fun creating!
The sketch had a circle in the middle but that did not work for me so I changed it to a square.
Stamps are from Art Impressions and Tim Holtz, I stamped with markers and blended it out with a damp brush to get a watercoloured look. Sentiment from MFT, butterflies from Martha Stewart, and some neptune Nuvo drops. The panel on the left is embossed.
Happy Saturday! Challenge time over at the CRAZIES. Yesterday was National Tea Day.....the challenge is to make something with tea or coffee.....I wanted to play more with my Tim Holtz stamps and the watercolour look with the flowers so I made the challenge work for me, lol.
I did my flowers in the pots, I don't have a stamp that says anything coffee so I put a sketch pen in my Cameo and printed my own sentiment!
Saturday means it is challenge time over at the CRAZIES. This week it is ZOO LOVER'S DAY.....the great time about being on this design team is, that you can stretch the challenges, lol. That is what I did.....I used chickadees on my card, pretty sure they are in the ZOO too, most likely because they are every where, lol. But I really wanted to play with this set from Local Rubber King, I stamped the birds with distress markers and brushed on a glaze, when that was dry the fun begun....
I stamped, inked, sprayed, splattered, used inkagold, enamel embossing powder.....and so on.
It is the third Saturday of the month already and that means it is sketch challenge over at the CRAZIES. They take the guessing out of cardmaking, love a good sketch!
For this card I have used a Stampendous stamp, star lilies, and coloured it with derwent intense metallic pencils. The picture does not really show the shine but it is there. Sentiment out of my stash, I think it is stampendous too. Come on over and check out what the other design team members have created, get inspired and join us if you like!
Happy Friday! Oh,how I love Altenew stamps...all of them and they keep coming out with more....
This card is made with the Bamboo Roses , coloured with Derwent Inktense pencils. I fussy cut them out and also some extra leaves, used a clear wink of stella pen to add some shine. The background is done with peeled paint distress ink and a stencil, sentiment from a thank you set from Altenew.
This card is already in the mail to Holland, where we spend a lovely week with family and friends.
Happy Saturday! Hope Mr. Blogger do as he says he does, lol, I am away on a trip to Holland to visit family. This week was World Book Day and we are asked to use something from a book on your card over at the CRAZIES. I had coloured the flowers earlier, they are from the Hello Sunshine set from Altenew and decided to use a bible verse. This verse is such a great reminder for me.
Flowers were coloured with Derwent inktense pencils and have a layer of shiny medium over them.
Use your words! Make your sentiment the focal point of your card, that is the challenge today over at the CRAZIES. Recently I bought some YUPO paper, for this card I used some alcohol inks on it, what a game changer! After it dried, the flowers were stamped along the bottom, they are from Altenew, hello sunshine. The sentiment is from the same set, stamped in black, matted on silver, as a final touch, I added different colours of Nuvo drops.
Challenge time over at the CRAZIES today, with Valentine's day around the corner the challenge today is to use food/dining related theme on your card and the colour red.
I had to think hard what to use, since you can not really eat flowers, lol. In one of my drawers I found this cupcake stamp, I think it was from the $1 bin at Michaels , I stamped it, coloured it with Prismacolour pencils, cut it out and glittered it up. Some different shapes of Nestabilities, stars and a sentiment from Penny Black. Come and join us at the challenge or get inspired by the design team members! Hope you like it, Anja
It's Saturday and that means challenge time over at the CRAZIES!
This week we are asked to make a card with squirrels on it....my Cameo helped me out with those cute animals. Treestamp is from Inkadinkadoo stamped with markers and then blended out with some water. Paper out of my BIG stash.
Third week of the month means Sketch challenge over at the CRAZIES. You can find the details HERE. It is hard to see the wave border behind the rectangle panel, the circles are cut with the Silhouette, sentiment from MSE and paper......out of my stash....
I was going for the circle look, lol, Till next time, Anja
Happy Saturday! Our first challenge of 2017 over at the CRAZIES. Unofficially today is
"Old Rock Day" so we are asked to create something with a rock!! Anything you can think off!!
I have a good collection of Stampscapes....and I have used some on this card. The cabin on the lake, the rocks on the front, the reeds, clouds and birds. I started making a background with "te gekke krijtjes", wax based crayons from Holland, and then stamped the images and added some white gel pen accents. Sentiment (unknown) on a circle, some added paper and score lines to complete this card.
STAR – Stars decorate our Christmas Trees and also helped show where Jesus was laying in his Manger
all those many years ago. So for our challenge this week we are using the word ‘STAR’ – incorporate
something starting with each of the letters in the word
So here we go, I used S the silver background and silver embossing powder
T teal bow and colorburst background
A card made by ANJA, lol
R the flower is a rose
Hope you get a change to check out what the other Design team members have created and play along if you can, Happy crafting, Anja
Did you know that today it is NATIONAL CAKE DAY!!! I did not know that there was such a thing but I am for sure liking it!! For the challenge today over at the CRAZIES, we are asked to put cake on our projects.
For my card I cut the cake with the Silhouette and used some designer papers that I saved.....really trying to use what I have. Along the bottom I used the Martha Stewart heart punch, some twine, lots of Viva glitter and Viva pearl pens and a sentiment from Penny Black.
Happy Friday! This card is cased from the Altenew blog!! I love the simple layout and the single flower on the bottom, mine is coloured with prismacolour pencils. The flower is from this set HERE. Sentiment from Penny Black some bling out of my stash. The dots were added with a fine tip black marker....I could not resist, lol. In the new year when our new adventure starts, I ll be teaching a 4 card class with this Altenew set, it will be on the website soon , but I can tell you the date: January 18 at 1 PM, so stay tuned for more details
Happy Saturday! Challenge time over at the CRAZIES.
