Fresly Made Sketches 275: Succulents

Here my card for the Fresly Made Sketches Blog
with the Club Scrap Succulents rubber stamps
and paper.

You find all the details and more
samples of this sketch HERE.

I started out with stamping two pots on the card
and one pot on a seperate piece of paper. Then I stamped
the succulents by adding markers to the stamps
and stamping them on the card and the seperate piece
of paper. I stamped the succulents again and cut those out
to add with foam tape to the first stamped succulents.
This gives a more 3dimentional effect.

The stips of paper are from the cut aparts that come 
with this kit and perfect for this card.

On Wednesday i hope you will come back for 
the monthly Club Scrap Blog Hop
and see all the projects that you can make
with this months Succulents kit
of papers, rubber stamps and embellishments.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

Birthday card for you

Here is another birthday card with a combination of the
and a flower set called Grateful Bunch.

I used the flowers of the Grateful bunch first on the kraft paper
embossed with white embossing powder and colored in blue.
The same ink is used to stamp the flowers on the card
and to color the dresses of the women. I also stamped the smallest
flower on top of the colored dresses as if itis the print of
the dress. The  women where stamped on a separate piece
of paper and cut out to add to the card with foam tape.

Art Neko Birthday Card

Today my card is for the color challenge on 

Here you see the inspiration for the card.

For my card I used Art Neko stamps
Forget Me Not background stamp
Love Birds stamp
Happy Birthday sentiment

The background is stamped on white paper with versamark and
embossed with clear embossing. Next the red color is added
and the embossing powder works as a resist. With a soft cloth
I cleaned off the ink from the flowers.

Next I stamped the Love Birds in black on a seperate piece 
of paper and added the sentiment. Then I cut it out and glued it to
a piece of black paper and cut it out again with a border.
After adding the ribbon around the background, the birds 
were added with foam tape on top.
After making the card for the challenge, I made some other card
and noticed I still used the same colors. It is a wonderful
color combination.

Thanks for looking
and have a creative day!

Beautiful You

This card is made with a wonderful new set I have
from Stampin'Up! called Beautiful You.
It has a bunch of wonderful images and sentiments. 

I made my first card for the 
The girl image is stamped twice,
once on the kraft colored paper
and next on the patterened paper. From the
patterned paper  the dress and hat part
is cut out and glued to the image on the 
kraft paper.
Once i got started I just could not stop anymore.
The image looks wonderful on kraft paper. Here
they are colored with a white pencil. I have so many
Stampin Up! older design paper blogs that not available
anymore, but are perfect for these kind of cards.
To some i added ribbons and to some I added
a few sticky pearls.
Birthday cards always come in handy and more
playing with the stamps and the design papers.
On the left card I colored the image and used
some design paper.

On these cards i colored my images with markers
in the colors of the background design papers.
Can you see I had fun? Well more to come!

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

Love grows here

I just had to make this box for my husband.
It was perfect to fill with chocolate hearts.

The best thing is that this box is a freebie from
and you find it here.

When you have downloaded the file, you can
print it on cardstock and follow the instructions
to make one of your own.

This is my version: a little bit different.
I added the checkered part on the inside of the
box and did some stamping on the sides.

All around te pieces of paper I used a blending tool
to color the sides with ruby red ink.

Here younsee the inside of the box and

This is the outside of the box.
In my stash I found some perfect heart stickers
for the top of the box.
And not only did I make a love jar for my daughters
of course I made one for my husband!
The idea cam from the blog of
Tim Holz and the mini mason jars.
I used baby food jars of which I have plenty.

The rop collage part is a card with a message for my
love inside. 

Love is a ticket from Tim's collection
as well as the filmstrip (Ray loves to watch
movies and go to the cinema) and the
metal sentiment embellishments.
The coffee cups (obvious) and the chocolate
donut are stickers and the flower, button and key
are from my stash.

The wooden letters on the jar are also
from tim's collection and are glued together
with glossy accent. The ribbon is colored
with candied apple and the metal embellishment
is a steering wheel with 14 stamped inside,

I hope you all have a
