Going for it

Ik was zo geïnspireerd dat ik met hetzelfde papier een tweede kaartje heb gemaakt. Wederom een mannenkaart met een stempel van Whiff of joy.
Ookal heb ik er bloemen op geplaatst, de brads maken het mannelijker en ietwat stoerder.
Kijk ook even naar de fan-tas-tische close-up die ik met mijn fototoestel kan maken. Jeej. Ik ben fan!

Met deze kaart kan ik ook meedoen aan de challenge 'flower power' van de Stamptacular Sunday Challenge.


I was so inspired that I made another card, also a male card, with a stamp from Whiff of joy. Even though I used some flowers, I think the brads make it more manly and tuffer.
Also look at the fa-bu-lous close-up that I can make with my new camera now. Jippie, I'm a fan!

With this card I can also enter the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge, 'flower power'.

Need inspiration?

Ik heb de tweede liefde van m'n leven ontmoet: mijn nieuwe fototoestel!
Ik zocht al lang naar een nieuw toestel dat mijn kaarten in hun natuurlijke schoonheid lieten zien (zonder storende lichtinval) en ik heb het eindelijk gevonden!
Ik heb er gewoon geen woorden voor en woorden zijn hier eigenlijk ook niet voor nodig... bekijk zelf de foto's maar!

Eindelijk eens een mannenkaart gemaakt. Het was nodig... mijn voorraad raakte op. Het sentiment kan ik nog toevoegen wanneer ik de kaart voor een gelegenheid gebruik :)
Ook een stempel van Whiff of joy gebruikt dat ik nog niet gestempeld had.

Book of Spain

I seem to have lost my mojo a little bit. Nevertheless, I started making a page about my 'book of spain' yesterday.
My book really needed finishing, because I'm going to London soon, so I can begin a new scrapbook :).
Now this one isn't finished yet, I just have a space issue... My book is filled LOL.
I started with a sketch from creative scrappers (sketch 94 for the people who want to take a look... just follow the blinkie on my blog) and started laying stuff all around.
You can't really see the sketch any more, but hey.. it's just meant for a head start, ain't it?

Allthough my mojo is a little bit missing, I'm really pleased with the outcome of my page.
There's a lot of white space for my style, but sometimes more is less.
I saw on a site somewhere that putting xxx-es on your lay-out really uses up your x-es from your alphabets, so offcourse I had to use this.
So what do you think?

Whiff of joy

I love the whiff of joy stamps. And now, Katharina is hosting a guest designer spot. I thought, what the heck, why not? Go to her website to check out the details. You needed to follow the recipe of: - one button - one ribbon - two designer papers - one cardstock With this challenge, I decided to give a go at an easel card. I'm sooo gonna make these things again. They are so much fun!

It's a bit hard to see, but I also used the glazing technique from the Wiff of Joy tutorial blog. What was the result surprising! I loved to see the embossing powder melt away under my heat tool. mmmmm. Hehe.
I couldn't have enough of it, so embossed the text stamp as well.

More Christmas in March

Like I said... I love playing with blue colours. When I finished my first card, I just added another piece of paper and voila... My new card came alive.
Again... I still had a coloured image lying around, so two cards finished under one hour. You got to love that. And it's a great way to use up images you allready stamped. I know it's hard for some (who doesn't love the smell of the stamps, choosing a fitted stamp and the way the inks colour when you stamp your image on your paper LOL).
It only took me a while to cut out the paper, so I could use the piece of blue paper in the background. It suits so well, don't you think?

And why not? I never used this stamp before, because I thought it was to big to make a beautifull card. But then a relative from a good friend of mine died and all of a sudden this stamp became a great inspiration with the shades of blue I still had lying on my desk.
It's not a typical mourning card, but hey... She's a young card and after the rain comes sunshine, right?

Christmas in March

I love the challenge blog Winter Wonderland. Here you can stock up for Christmas, so you don't have that 'last-minute-stress' at the end of the year.
This week their theme is 'Monochromatic Christmas'. I adore making card monochromatic and layering all those different shades of one colour. And I also love working with the colour 'blue' to do this.
I still had a coloured image (my very first take with the Copic Markers), so this card was made under 40 minutes (woohoe!).
I still had some scraps left, so I decided to decorate the inside of the card too.

Go check out their blog and the fabolous price they have to offer!
