The snowblobe image is a very vintage 
Stampin'Up! stampset called Snow Globe.
I cut out the glove for the front of the card
and added a piece of acrylic window behind it.

And here is the inside of the card.
You see a Christmas Starbuck cup, more decoration
and a handwritten sentiment.

I found these FREE printable Christmas
cups on a blog here called

The cups also gave me the idea to make this 
Christmas tree decoration.

Here you see how I altered a woodsie tree decoration.
Left you see the original, then I added the cup and the snowflake,
On the last one on the right you see I also added a sentiment.
Can you see a tree full of these ornaments and Starbuck  cups?

Mojo Monday 477

Happy Monday everyone!
On Facebook I notice a lot of beautiful snow
pictures, so I guess it is cold out there.
We have freezing weather, beautiful skies,
but no snow.
This is the nightsky over the lake behind our house today.
For my card I used the new sketch up on
the Mojo Monday Blog today.

Paper, sentiment and images are all by Club Scrap.
I used the new December digital kit called
For the sweather I used the embosing folder
cable knit by Stampin'Up!.
The patches on the arm of the sweater were made
with an oval punch and a white gelpen.

Thanks for looking,
stay warm and creative!

Baby, it is cold outside.

Yes, it is getting cold outside
and in my garden I made some pictures.
You see the ice critals on the leaves and plants.
I love the beautiful view.

I used my pictures for this card.

In the background you see a white embossed
panel with the Stampin'Up! Capble Knit embosing folder.

The sentiment is by Create with TLC
and the leaves and snowflake are by
I stamped the images on the same blue paper as the base 
of the card and embossed them with white embossing powder.
I added a few sticky pearls too.
Thank you for looking

Baking up for the Holidays with Create with TLC

Welcome to a delicious Blog Hop
with images from Create with TLC.

I hope you have arrived here from
and seen her amazing work.

I received this fun image 
and had to make something.

You can grab it to with just the click of your 
right mouse button and save it to you
own computer and make cards with it.

So what is home made? Cookies
and I had to make a batch of chocolate chip
for my grandson.
And of cours a nice tag on the top.
I printed the image on off white paper and colored it with pencil.
The sentiment is also by Create with TLC.
I fastened the tag with a peg on top of the bag.
A ribbon through the whole and some Christmas bells.
Of course I had to make a card too.
For this I printed the image on craft paper
and colored with pencil.
The sentiment is also from Create with TLC
only I colored it with the computer in
Christmas colors.

The background paper with the cups is by Stampin'Up!
and I used the left over piece for the inside of the card.
How about a very easy card? Well, just print the image
and a sentiment on vellum and cut it to size.
then fasten it with brads to the background.
Papers from a dsp block of 6x6 inch.
Left over papers for the inside and a little stamping.
Hope I gave you some inspiration if you have not
enough and need more, go to

I had to think of it when i was asked to make
a bicycle card for a lady who will be 80 soon.
I right away thought of this vintage image I have from

Papers and background stamps are all by a very old
Club Scrap kit called 
Wheel and Sprocket (Aug 2006).
The number is a woodsie from my stash.

The sentiment on the tag is in Dutch and means Happy birthday.

of these. Want to try different colores. Will share when they

Club Scrap Paradise Blog Hop

Welcome to the monthly Club Scrap blog hop.
This month the kit is called Paradise.
I hope you have arrived here from
and seen her beautiful artwork.

If you happen to loose your way,
you can find all participants of the hop

Here is  surprise for you...what's in the bag?
Yes, I started with making a bag from printing out
the leaves design from the digital Paradise kit
on copy paper. Not on the heavy cardstock.
This is not good for folding and wrapping is usually thrown away.

I found on Pinterest how to make the bag
and by looking at this picture it was easy
to copy how to make a bag.
For decoration I used one of the cut
aparts from the paper kit. The flowers are
punched out and a few gemstones are added.
Closing the bag with a bookclip from my stash.
I have been playing with food jars (I have lots!)
and that is what  had to be wrapped up.
I started with making a snowblobe.
Using two pictures and glueing them back to back.
I laminated the picture, leaving a bottom
of an extra half an inch.
The lid of the jar is decorated with a border from 
the cut aparts from the paper kit.
The leaves from the rubber stamps are stamped
with dark green ink and colored with a water brush.
The picture is cut in 3 parts. The middle part
folded to the back and the two outside bits towards the front.
I used hot glue to fasten the picture to the lid.

Before adding the picture I added some
gold glitter inside the jar.
Here the decoration I added on the fron of the jar.
I must say it works best with hot glue to stick
everything to the jar.
The other jar I used to make a hanging element.
Make a hole in the middle of the lid for the ribbon
and print a picture. Oh my there are those boys again!
The picture is decorated with flowers that
were cut out after stamping and fastned with little
yellow brads from my stash. Rolling the picture
and taping beginning and end together.
At the top make some cuts  for glueing it 
on the lid. Through the lid you see the ribbon
that holds one of the buttons that came with the kit.
This is so that the ribbon won't fall through.
On top the parrot ( I thought this is quite appropriate:
they make a lot of noise all together), leaves and
flowers. The jungle is here!

But these boys are a bliss too. Love them to bits!

My last project is a card. This kit has such
happy colors it is perfect for a birthday card.

I used this sketch challenge for November
 from a Dutch stampgroup.

And colored my imgages with watercolor and a paintbrush.

Also this card qualifies for the last day
of the 30 day color callenge for 

Do you see that fun pinapple washi tape? I found it
today and could not resist using it on my card.
The flowers are punched out .

Well, this was my contribution,
but there is more. Go over to
and see her vision of Paradise.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!
