True Blue

Made this card using a sketch from Tiets her club, its from the december challenge. The design papers i used came from the cardkit from Simpel-Scrappen. I coloured them with distress ink on Canson Illustration paper and i must say for me this paper rocks big time. The picture doesn't do this card justice coz of all the glitter and shine the camera couldn't really capture it right.

Totally Hero Arts

I made this card from three Hero Arts stamps and i only used Distress ink. I used stickles on the berries and i coloured the leaves green. I also used my Spica pen on this card, it gives a more subtile glitter effect. You can't really see it but the three squaresare popped up.

Happy Holidays

I sooooo love this stamp from Magnolia Tilda and Edwin figure skating, it's so cute and adorable. I used Peerless Watercolor on Canson Illustration paper. I was looking for this paper for sometime and this weekend i walked right into it at this dutch store called V&D. You can also use it for pencil colouring and copics. I haven't tried it out with copics yet but i soon will.

One downside to this card is that the camera didn't capture the colours right it also didn't capture the 3d effect of the red letters and snow. The letters are velvet chipboard letters and i bought them like this. The background paper is from little yellow bicycle and i stamped the pine trees on to it with distress ink peeled paint.

Cardkit Card

This week i received the cardkit from Simpel-Scrappen in the kit there's always a sketch so i made this card using that sketch. The magnalia stamp i had coloured her a while ago with Copic markers.

The scenery was a little to big to make a regular card of it, so i turned it into another stair step fold card. It looks so much better in real.

Scenery with new Magnolia stamps

When i saw the Santa collection of Magnolia i had something like this in my mind, what i wanted to create with them. I am also gonna make a winter scenery background also with the stamps from magnolia and i will add this one 3d on top. I want to create this feel of a fully decorated setting in a mall with santa in his chair surrounded by kids and giving them presents. My goal is to make a little painting of it.

dinsdag 28 oktober 2008

Today i made this card. I made a combination of stamps and a pop up snowman. On the front it is Charlie building the snowman and on the inside he is finished and there for the whole village to see. The snowman you can find here Roberto Sabuda, There are lots of other fun pop ups you can print out and turn into a card. There are a few on there which i would like top make and combine with stamps,

Another stair step fold card, Coloured all the stamps i used yesterday and turned it into a card. I used the boy and chair from Whiff of Joy and the plant is from Magnolia and the background stamp is from Stampa Rosa which i won some time back on ebay. Sentiment is from SU.

Stair Step Fold

I saw this technique at Splitcoaststampers it's called Stair Step/Accordion Card TLC190. I really liked it and i had so much fun making it. I used a set from Darcies to make the background and the stamp in front of the background is from Stamps Happen it's Daisy. Ladybugs are known as the fairy's pet and Daisy has kept everyone that she's met. Everything is coloured with Copic Sketch markers and the flowers are punches from EK-Success.The grass is made with my Cricut Expression with the cartridge Plantin Schoolbook. I punched a hole in the middle through the whole card and put a cord through it and i adjusted it at the right size and tied it with a tiny knot because the card was constantly sliding and this way i stopped it from sliding. So it keeps standing up beautifully.

Ice Queen

I made this card with the stamps of Magnolia pink collection combined with alota rubber stamps. I have used design paper from Basic Grey called Euphoria. I used a sketch from a challenge of the club of Tiets. I am not completely happy with the way it turned out but it is an "ok" card.

Christmas Carousel Horse

My creation for this workshop challenge for a card club. The pictures i took of this card even though they are good picture doesn't do the card justice as in the way it looks in real. All glittery and shiny but not too much.

The horse stamp is a stamp i won some time ago on ebay and the girl on the inside is one of the pink collection by Magnolia.

Halloween Tag

Tag closed

Tag folded open with the folding doors closed

Folding doors open

Girlie no 1

Girlie no 2

Made this Halloween Tag. I made this Tag with my cricut and i also used my design studio which i bought in march but on my old computer i could never activate it. First it said that it couldn't find my internet connection and after that i always got the message that my software was already activated. So i gave it a go on my new computer and viola it got activated and it worked. The skeleton is from cricut cartridge paper dolls. The colouring is again done with Copic markers. I really luvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv my Copics!!!!!!!

Sneak peek

I also coloured these 2 ladies today. I will use them with the cardkit from Simpel-Scrappen from the month september. I find that i did a great job on them, colouring them with Copic markers.

Lady in red

Made this little lady in red with desingpapers from Doodlebug. I coloured her with Copic markers. I left the tag empty so that i can put on the sentiment when i will send it to someone. The papers came from the cardkit from simpel-scrappen from a few months ago.

Thinking of You

maandag 6 oktober 2008


Made this Halloween card with stamps on the right from the new Magnolia Halloween collection and left i used a stamp from Northwoods Rubber Stamps. I coloured everything with my Copic Markers and i used lots of stickles my favorite Star Dust. The spider was cut out with my cricut and the cartridge the spider came from was Paper dolls.

Wedding Anniversary

Made this card for my parents wedding anniversary. Don't know why but i feel like something is still missing. I got till the 4th of october to still change it or do something completely else. The only thing i do know is that i totally lack of inspiration for sometime now. The stamps i have used are all from Hanna Stamps. I have coloured everything with Copic Markers start to love and enjoy them more and more now i got the hang of it.

Close up of the rings.

It was tough to get a good picture cause of all the shimmer, glitter and shine.

Pictures of My 2 Sweeties

This is Elliott my Ragdoll. He will turn 2 years old on the 29th of november. He's really sweeeeeet but also quite authoritative and arrogant, specially when people come to visit. He's not coming near to them but he stares with this arrogant look from a distance and it always looks like he's staring them out the door asap. Really funny. He's really quite attached to me. I love him to bits.

This is Harvey my Maine Coon and he will turn 2 years old on the 12th of december and ooooohhhhhhh how i love this breed. I never had cats before and these 2 are my first but he's sooooooo cute sweet and cheeky. He's everybody's friend. Completely opposite of Elliotts character. He's very talkative and lively, hardly ever sleeps and is always hunting after bugs and birdies if he gets the chance.

Ziggy Flying Ace

Turned the little fellow into a simple card coz he needs to soak up all the attention. Even though it looks simple i have used a lot of stuff to create the card.

vrijdag 12 september 2008

Really Proud of Myself

First of all i saw this really cute stamp of Ziggy on Ebay in spring but unfortenately the seller didn't ship internationally. Then like about 2,5 weeks ago he surfaced up again on Ebay and this time the seller was shipping internationally and i won it. After studying several Copic Markers tutorials on several blogs i decided to give it a go again. This is the 2nd time i coloured with them and i am very proud of the result. So i couldn't wait to show it to you all. I already have the layout of the card i am going to make in my mind.

I wanted to make a card for the sister of my collegue at work. Her sister is diagnosed with breastcancer and she will have surgery next week. I just wanted to send her a card to wish her lots of strength and letting her know that i will be thinking of her. The idea for the card i saw on the blog of Card Inspired by Maria. I used the Stampin Up The Tearing Edge ruler to make the doodling along the edges of the card.

Something Different

This time a completely different card. No colouring of stamps just working with the paper and embellishments itself. It was great to make and i will definately make some more cards like this in the future. The paper comes from the Simpelscrappen cardkit of august again and it is also featured on their blog


For me it was really awwwwwwesome to see my cards there.

Twins Sarah & Kay

The original thought was to combine Sarah Kay with the girl on the bike from Elisabeth Bell. Make it look something like this, if the stamps are matchable sizes.

I haven't got the Elisabeth Bell one yet so then i thought i give stamping the same girl twice a go and make them identical twins LoL. The designpaper comes from the Simplescrappen Cardkit of august and is from Doodlebug. The space underneath the girls is left blank so when i want to send the card i can add the text there.

Buzzy friends

Card made with a stamp from Happy Hoppers(tm) Stamps this one is called Buzzy Friends.

Colour Me Bad

Sarah kay is back

Once a month i get the cardkit from simpel-scrappen. So everything i used is from that kit including sketch. Sarah kay is coloured with faber castell polychromos and also some touches with twinkling h2o's and a little bit of stickles glitter turqoise.

One tip i would like to share is that when you need or want to colour small areas, to do it with the pencil it self dipped in the odorless spirit.

Oh Happy Day

Today i made this scenery card with my new Magnolia's Summer & Sea Collection. These are really great to use for scenery cards. The sentiment is from stampin up. Hope you enjoy my card.

2 x-mas cards i made one with my favo guy Ziggy and a precious moment one. I made these 2 a while ago.

Less is More

I combined an oldie with a newbie. The teddy bear is the oldie and the brick wall is the newbie both from Magnolia. What i had in mind was to make sort of a low budget card. Just to sort of show that you don't really need much to make a cute card.

vrijdag 9 mei 2008


Today my Shabby Chique Collection by Magnolia arrived. After waiting forever for them. It's really nice weather overhere so i don't spend inside the house much. I just had to try a few of my stamps out. So this is the card i made today. If you got any questions feel free to ask.
