Feathered Friends

Spelen met nieuwe materiaal is altijd leuk! Deze vogels zijn stanzen van Tim Holtz. Ik gebruikte ze om 2 vogels te maken die in mijn achtertuin wonen. Een roodborstje en een Vlaamse Gaai.

Onderstaande kaart maakte ik voor de verjaardag van mijn mama.

De achtergrond is opgebouwd uit verschillende lagen Milled Lavender Distress Ink. Ik gebruikte het rozensjabloon van de mini-stencel set 25 om de rozen te sjabloneren.

De vogels en de andere elementen werden ingekleurd met Distress inkten.

De binnenkant van het nest is opgebouwd met Distress Oxide sprays en Crackle Paste, dat met een sjabloon werd aangebracht.

Christmas in July

A christmas card in July? Strange? Not in this bussines! 🙂

I stamped the poinsettia on a watercolor media card and embossed it with gold embossing powder.

I masked the stamped pointisettia  and pulled the pieces through an ink wash on my craft mat. I simply pressed distress ink (Speckled Egg and  Frayed Burlap) on the craft mat together with a spray of water and then dragged the cardstock through the inky wash and dried with a heat tool.

I stamped the words in Archival Ground Espresso and the music notes in Speckled Eggs. The pointisettia is colored with bright Aquarel Paint. I added the golden lettres JOY, cut out with the Impact Alphabet Die-namics of MFT. I distressed the edges of the paper and sponged them with VIntage Photo Distress Oxide.
I finished the card with some golden pearls.

The Professor Red

That moment that you end up stamping on your  lap…

I played so long with the professor stamp that my crafting stuff were sneaking on to me so that I even did’nt had the space to stamp but on my lap. 🙂 Wow that was fun!

We had already a blue and a green professor. Now it’s time for the color red. This card was made with the same techniques as in my previous blogpost.

The Professor Green

Hello, today I will show you 2 other cards that were made with The Professor Stamp. This time I used green as basic color. The backgrounds were made by splashing ink and water and stamping the industrial items in 2 different colors to create dept. The numbers were sponged through a stencil. The edge of the background were distressed with a paper distresser and sponged with brown ink.
The jacket of the Professor is colored with Distress Glaze Rustic Wilderness and his hair with Vintage Photo. The sentiment is a text that I typed on my computer and printed out.

It was Vanessa Osbourn who inspired me to make the next card. I liked the effect of the Distress Glaze on the goggles.

The Professor Blue

Today I want to share this card I made. I used the stampset The Professor from Tim Holtz. Isn’t he a handsome guy?
I made the background of the card, by dipping the paper into the inks that were left in my splatter box. Never waste any ink! 🙂 Than I stamped the different industrial items on the background.
I cut an oval out of a piece of paper spashed with Antique Linen and Faded Jeans Distress Oxides. The professor is stamped in Black Archival Ink and I colored his jacket with Faded Jeans.
The sentiment is printed on copypaper and cut out with 2 retired punches from Stampin Up.

Leve mama

I made this little house for my mom on mothersday. 


I used a fotoframe and coated it with Antique Linen Distress Paint.  I put a coat of Distress Crackle paint on it and I waited until the paint cracled. Than I painted again with Antique Linen & Evergreen Bouht Paint. I spritzed some Walnut Stain Spray over it so that you can see the crackles clearly.

On the inside I used  Washitape. I cut out some borders with the Crochet die set and colored them with Dusty Concord Distress Ink. I went over the lace with some Antique linen paint. 

The lady was cut out of glitter paper with The Park thinlits dies. 

For the background I coated a piece of watercolor paper and coated it with white gesso. Than I applied Distress Cracled Past over it. When it was dry, I sprinkeld some Royal Blue Nuance solovables dyes and sprayed it with water. I added some depth on the borders with Walnut Stain Distress crayon.

I cut out the flowers with the Wild Flower Stems (1,2&3) and colored them with Distress Oxide Inks. I stamped the butterflies from the Futter Stamp Set and colored them with Distress Inks. 
The letters are from the Classic Lower Alphabeth dies. I embossed them 2 times with Speckeled Egg embossing glaze to give them some dimension. 


Moet er nog glitter zijn?

Op zoek naar inspiratie, kwam ik mijn glitterpapier tegen. Ik heb ze in alle kleuren, want glitterpapier komen op één of andere manier altijd in mijn winkelwagen terecht. 🙂

Meestal gebruik ik het papier als accent, maar ik wou dit keer meer. Ik gebruikte het over de gehele kaart. Ik maakte een winterlandschap voor mijn Jarige meter Wies. Ze is dementerend en deze glitterkaart is fijn om aan te raken, zo voelt ze de structuur van de glitter.

Ik maakte ook een kaart met Gertrude (de giraf) in haar natuurlijke habitat.

Moet er nog glitter zijn?
