Sunday Scrap page: Pumpkin Marmalade

Even before Michael Strong shared his free
digital pumkin stamp ( go here), I had the idea of
making the pumpkin marmalade. And the making of is sure
worth a scrap page.

For this page I used Club Scrap's Oopsie Daisy papers.

I printed out the pumpkins in a small size and in a row on 
heavy cardstock and colored them with disress markers.
When they were finished i added some glitter glue for
extra dimention.

These letters came with the kit and i colered them orange
and stamped on them with vintage photo ink and an autumn cameo
 stamp by Michael Strong. The leaves are cut with a Tim
Holtz die called Autumn Gatherings

As for a English version of the recipe, you can google
it. This one is close to my recipe:

Have a lovely
and creative Sunday!

Saturday Card with a recipe

Recently I made some Pumpkin Marmalade
and to decorate the jar and the card I used the free
pumpkin image from Michael Strong's blog.
You can find the imag here.

For the lttle card  I printed the recipe on heavy white
cardstock and folded the card, Then colored the pumpkin
with distress markers and cut it out,glued it to orange paper
and cut it out again. Added some green sticky gemstones.
For the background I used a piece of light brown paper
 and stamped Michael Strong's cloisonne square stamp
in vintage photo just lightly. Added a ribbon and on top
stuck the pumpkin with foam tape.
Another image of the pumpkin was colored for the lid of he
jar and cut out with a circle die. For the orange paper
I used a scalloped die. Glued all together and with foam 
tape to the jar.

Inside my card I printed the recipe. As you can see this
is in dutch. i googled an English recipe for you that
is very close to the one I used:

Thanks for looking and
have a creative day!

Sunday Scrap page: Safari

Last week we took Owen on his first safari.
He is wild about animals and so when his mom
and dad had other things to do, we took Owen to
a Dutch Safari Park called Beekse Bergen.
He had the time of his life and did not want to miss
anything all day. A bus drove us through the park
and the driver told us all about the animals. We had a special day.

I made this page with Safari papers from Club Scrap

and the giraffe stamp from Michael Strong.
I colored the image with pencil.

Thanks for looking
and have a creative day!

Pink Ribbon

October is the month of
breast cancer awareness.
It is important to keep on checking
yourself and supporting others.

I have a little project today
that you can use as a gift or as
a thank you.

These little boxes can be filled with sweets
or a little gift. They are made with a thinlits die by  Stampin'Up!
This is the die. You cut out this shape twice
to make one box.

For these boxes I chose some pink paper from
a  designer papers block.

Glue them together like thi and fold the
outsides upwards.

First the parts with the handles and hold them together
and slip the other parts over the handle one by oneand the box is ready.
As the paper is already quite busy,  I made a little
card with the box.
For decoration I used Michael Strong's Cloisonné Accent 
circle stamp. Stamp the circle with versamark and
emboss with white embossing powder. Then cut out with
a circle punch.
These circles I used to conscruct a bra on top of the
card with pink ribbon and some sticky gemstones.
The text is printed with the computer.

The other box I decorated with the bra.
Here you see how I did that:
On the folding line I cut little slits to pull
the ribbon through to the back.

On the backside I taped the ribbon down.

Here the finished box with a label I found on internet.
I have been looking high and low to add the link to this blog,
but could not find it any more. I hope the maker is not offended
by me sharing this freebie with you:

Stay strong
and have a creative day!

Happy World Card Making Day 2!

What would WCMD be without a card
from my favourite CLUB SCRAP?

So here is my card and as a treat
I have a tutorialfor you as well!

The background to this card is done with a stencil from
the CS Blueprint October kit.

Club Scrp has lots of stencils and you might want to
know what to do with these stencils. Well the Technique Junkies
have just come up with a CD with 40 tutorials on
what to do with stencils:

For this technique you need:
baby wipes

Use the gelatos to color your paper randomly.

Use your finger or a finger sponge to rub the 
crayon color together over the card.

Lay down the stencilon top of the card
you colored with gelatos.

Take the baby wipe and rub over the stencil
to take away some of the color.

This is the finished background when
you take of the stencil.

Beautiful, right?! Harly need toadd anything else.
More of these easy and wonderful tutorials 

Thanks for looking and
have a creative day!
