C4C351, Christmas Blessings!


An early Christmas card.....that is not like me at all, when I saw what the challenge was at the CRAZIES this week, the idea of a Christmas card came up in my head. We are asked to make a card for an upcoming holiday. Last year I bought this stamp from Penny Black, it was still unused...
Heat embossed in gold and watercoloured with some Tombo markes, the berries have crystal effects on them. I carefully sprinkled a few magenta grey powder around the image and sprayed some water on it. Cut out with a Nellie die and matted on some old designer paper.
                                    Hope you like it! Till next time, Anja

C4C350, sketch challenge!


Happy Saturday! It's the third Saturday of the month and that means it's SKETCH challenge over at the CRAZIES.
I love a SKETCH challenge, it takes the guess work out of your card making. For my card I used one of  my many embossing folders....I really found some nice ones in my box, lol. And I went through some of my designer paper....and I used some ribbon!!
The flower pot is drawn by ME.... I am pretty happy how it  turned out! The idea of this card came from the Art Impressions website, I watched a you tube and tried to copy this card. Sentiment from Just Rite.
Watercolouring with the Art Impression stamps is very easy and relaxing, on their website you can find a ton of tutorials!!
                                                Hope you like this card! Till next time, Anja

C4C349, Back to school!


It is Saturday! Challenge time over at the CRAZIES!! This week the theme is back to school......
I don't really make back to school cards, lol, so I went to my CAMEO and cut out this frame.
The background is done with acrylic paints and an old gift card, some stars and dots were added. The circles are stamped on with acrylic paint as well. No clue who made the sentiment.....it was the only one is my big stash that was fitting!
Go on over and check out what the other design team members created, you can find it HERE.
                                    Have a great day, Anja

C4C348, Olympic colours!


Happy Saturday! I missed the CRAZY challenge last Saturday, time got away on me, but today I am in!
The challenge is to use olympic colours or a sports theme, you can find it all HERE.
Normally I don't go for these colours so a challenge it was, lol, I have used a stamp set from Scrappy Cat, which I have had forever and never used before. I stamped the flowers on coloured cardstock and cut them out. The background is a dot stamp from Altenew, heat embossed in black. Sentiment is also from Altenew and popped up, silver Viva pearls in the hearts of the flowers.The leaves are done with a Martha Stewart punch, some green sequins to finish it off.
                                                   Hope you like it! Till next time, Anja
