Something old, something new...

Another card out of my box with leftovers, this was a card from a class a while ago and I changed it up a little bit. The cupcake is from Just Rite and the sentiment from SU.
The icing is glittered up and to top it off, some pink bling.
I still can't see the bottom of the box....it makes you think....will I ever use all the paper??
Oh well, you never know, LOL!
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Anja

Joy Craft butterflies and more...

I am working on some thank you cards, since the end of the school year is coming up, I am gonna try to be organized this year,LOL!
The background is done with Tim Holtz distressing inks, love how easy they are to play with.
The stamps are from Technique Tuesday, the sentiment from Hannah stamps, the flowers are made with some punches and some Joy craft dies. The butterflies are from Joy Craft too, I cut them out and sprayed Goosebumps over them, it makes them nice and crisp. Well, the rest of the card is pretty basic, a CB embossing folder for the background and some Nestabilities.
And let's not forget the bling in the middle from the Dollar store.
Thanks for stopping by today, Anja

Purple flowers

I am still playing with some leftovers, so for now I think my new pink is purple, LOL!
Here I have used an old SU favourite, In full bloom, stamped the flowers twice, coloured them with Prisma's and Gamsol, I then cut them out and popped them up. The little thank you is a stamp I got years ago, no clue who made it but I like the size. For the centre of the flowers I used some Flowersoft, I do have a couple of jars, but I really don't use it a lot, don't know why....
The border punch along the side is from Martha Stewart and I used some different Nestabilities.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Anja

Happy Father's Day!

Father's day is coming up and since I have heard rumours that Canada Post might go on strike...my card is ready to go in the mail, well, after the long weekend.
So this card is for my Dad, and he lives in Holland, so hopefully the mail will get there.
I have used kraft paper and chocolate chip, I stamped the background with Weathered from SU and then on top of that I stamped some images from the set It's about time, also from SU.
The sentiment is from Kaiser Craft and the dies are from Spellbinders, Sprightly Sprockets.
After I had this all done, I got my little bottle with Goosebumps, from Tsukineko, and I sprayed some of this on top of the whole card. I love the look of it, it almost looks like leather.
Hope you like my card too, have a great weekend, Anja

Thinking of you

A thinking of you card with leftovers again, and it doesn't even make a dent in that big box.....
So there is not much to tell, a MS borderpunch for the top and bottom, the green piece is a die from Cuttlebug, stamp from Just Rite and flowers....the green leaves are dies from Holland, love those.
I call this a purple/green card, but I think it is pretty close to pink...
Thanks for looking, take care, Anja

Going purple with a CAS card

A very purple card today, and a pretty quick and simple one.
The middle piece and the corners are die cuts, they were in my leftover box too, no clue where they came from.
And I can not seem to stop playing with my flower punches...soon I will have a leftover box with paper flowers, LOL!
Have a great day, Anja

Casing myself....



Since it is raining all the time, deep sigh, doesn't make my farmer happy, I am cleaning up in my craft room. I keep a lot of scraps, must be the Dutch in me, and seem to think that all the leftovers from classes need to be used....so I looked through this bin and started to play with it.

This card was not meant to be on the green base but when I stamped the inside, I messed up so in order to save the card, I had to mount it on the green. I did change a few little things, we did thsi once for a make and take, so now those leftovers are gone. Watch for more to come...

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Anja

Lots of pink and flowers!



So if you don't like pink.....this is not for you. I have been making flowers and having a lot of fun with them, for Mother's day I got that awesome tool from punch a bunch to help you use your punches......I actually bought it myself, brought it home and told my boys and DH that this was gonna be my present and that I was taking donations, LOL!

Honestly, I love the men in my life but sometimes they need a little help and clear instructions are sometimes necessary, LOL! One year I got a llama for my birthday.....see, where I am coming from?

So on to the cards, Mr. Blogger seems to be working again, so 2 cards today.

And I couldn't help myself, there is lots of pink, green, flowers and bling. Stamps from Just Rite.

Don't think that I have to explain anything more. I will try to leave the pink alone for my next card. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day, Anja

So I didn't have a lot of time to stamp today, so I quickly made another Mother's day card, since I gave the other one away...., same layout, different colours and by the way, it really looks better in real life.
Hope you had a great day too, thanks for stopping by, Anja

Happy Mother's day!

As promised another Mother's day card, I had fun playing with some of the new stuff in my craft room. The picture does not do the card justice, but it's the best I could do.
I have used many different things/tools, a fiskars border punch, Rose creations for the flower from Spellbinders, paper from DCWV (right order?) ,Nestabilities, bling, Marianne die, stamp from Kaiser craft, that's it, I think.
The rose is cut out and then sprayed with Goose Bumps, a clear texture spray from Tsukineko, love that stuff! You can get it at SGD!
Today I am helping at the school for Grandparent's Day, always fun to have all the grandparents come and visit, I will miss the one at Grade school next year since our youngest is graduating soon. Our second son is leaving for Vancouver soon, for his job,they grow up so fast.....
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Anja

Penny Black birthday

This card is on it's way to my middle sister in Holland, I don't think she checks my blog so it's safe to post.
The PB image is coloured with Prisma's and Gamsol and the embossing folder is from Sizzix.
I was gonna punch out flowers and then emboss, I actually made 2 of those cards but I forgot, it looked nice too.
Have a great day, it's raining here again, deep sigh, so I have to get some sunshine in my craftroom LOL. Thanks for stopping by, Anja

Spring birthday card

The warmer weather can't seem to come and stay...after all, it is May now, hopefully soon. But the sun is shining in my craft room, I am working on a new class and making some cards that need to be mailed out.
What can I say about this card, it's done with an old favourite stampset from SU, and it's pink, green, with ribbon and bling.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day, Anja
