Spool Card


This week iI am having so much fun
with my envelop punch board.
Today I made aproject with Club Scrap
papers and stamps,but I also have some 
Stampin'Up! projects over at my other blog HERE.

I share with you how I made this card:
You need:
1 piece of paper 4"x 11 (fold in half) from CS Dungerees
envelop punch board
Put the card (double) underneath the punch
and use the 3/8 mark and punch.

Flip the card and punch again at the 3/8 mark.
Do this also at the bottom of the card.
Take a ruler and craft knife to cut the  middle
part offon both sides of the card.
The card now looks like this:
You can start decorating however you like.

I covered the spool card with post it paper on top
and bottom before covering the card
with one of the Club Scrap  latest
stencils.I used blue ink and a blending tool to
color inside the stencil.

When finished coloring, I took my CS Ivory Elegance
stamp and stamped,with the same blue ink,
on top of the stencil.

When taken away the post it papers
the card looks like this. Just like there
are ribbons around the card.
As I have told you in my previous post,
I amtrying to sell of some of my stamps,
but this set of CS 2004 Textiles & Notions
is definitely one that stays!
You can findmy stampson sale HERE. 
And this is the finished card with some
extra embellishments from the CS Dungerees kit.

Hope you like the extra idea for using
your evelop punch board.

Thanks for looking and
have a creative day!

Thank you tags

I need to move some of my stamps.
My room is getting full and there is
so much new stuff on the market.
I have made a resolution: 
only something new comes in
when I have moved something old.
So I started my 2nd hand stamp blog:

some SU vintage stamps,
some Club Scrap stamps
and more stamps.

But.....
when they are sold,I always want to
add a nice card to say thank you.

This is what I came up with:
I have all these backgrounds that I made and are waiting 
to be made into something
So I got out some of my thank you stamps.
inks and background stamps.Stamps are all 
.I cut them all tag size
(so it meant cutting most of them in half)
Used a punch to cut of top corners and a 
cropadile to make a whole in the top for the ribbon.

On top of the backgrounds I used these wooden
Club Scrap stamps with inks that match the colors
of the tags. I used the inks also around the tag.
More scraps used to stamp with the thank you stamps
and also I thought enjoy would be nice
After stamping,cutting the words appart and 
also used some corner punches to make the words
into tags. Used ink around the border.

I stapled the sentiment to the tag
and added a ribbon. One tag finished!

Here you can see all the tags that I made for now.




Maybe you get one if you buy one of my stamps.
I know the 2nd hand blog is in Dutch,
but please send me and email if you
are interested in one of my stamps.

Thank you for stopping by
and creative greetings,

Sunday Scrap Page: Heat Wave


Here is my Sunday Scrap page.
The theme for this week was "Heat Wave",
but it is puring down with rain over here!
So I came up with a heat wave of the heart:
this happened last Wednesday when I was babysitting
my grandson and we looked at some baby pictures 
of my daughter (his mom) with the little monkey.

For this page I used papers from several Club Scrap
kits (Gratitude and Tribal) and Michael Strong's
cloisonné heart stamps.
The technique is the same one as I used on my
owl card yesterday: tissue tape technique.

For the border of this page stamp
 several large hearts at random.

To color the hearts stamp a inkpad directly
to your craft sheet and use a waterbrush 
for coloring (or a brush and a cup of water).

After finishing the coloring,cover the hearts with 
tissue tape (don't forget to put the tape a few times 
on your jeans before putting it on the page,
this helps to get it of more easy - I forgot this time!!)

To mark the border I put a piece of yellow sticky tape
all acros the paper.

With ablending tool and several colors inkpads
the border is filled all around the tissue tape.

Also I used a template on top of the colors.
This is a Club Scrap stencil from the Cape Cod kit.

Here you see the finished border. I added some cut out
and colored hearts (mainly to cover some bad 
places where the tissue tape tore the paper,but 
made the border looking even more interesting).

Stamps in the background are from
UM Tribal stamps and the circles are cut outs
from the CS Gratitude kit.

The felt love embellishment is from the  CSTribal kit
and the journaling card is from the Gratitude kit.

Thank you for stopping by
and I hope you have a creative day!

Tissue tape technique

we have a Card Captain every week. 
That is one person showing 5 cards from 
Monday to Friday. On Thursday it is Technique day
and this week our card captain found a wonderful
technique using washi tape. After seeing it
I had to try this too!

You might wonder....where is the 
tissue tape? Well, have a look at the tutorial
that you can find here:

and another one here, with a video tutorial:
For my card I used Michael Strong's owl stamp,
the leave and one flower from Hannah's Busy Bee.

You might also detect one Stampin'Up! stamp from 
the Work of Art stampset.

Everything is colored with distress inks
and for the background I also used a woodgrain stencil.

What a fun technique this is,
back to my craft room and make more!

Thanks for looking,
creative greetings,

of artwork from the New York Guggenheim Museaum.

Saturday Sketch card: Black & White

A new month, so a new sketch
This time there is also a color challenge
added. The cards need to be in black & white.

This is her is my take:
For this callange, i have made two holes
in the card with a circle spellbinder.

Then I stamped the mini cloisonné cats
by Michael Strong on black and white paper
and embossed them with black and white
embossing powder. When finished I cut
the cats with an oval spellbinder die.

The ovals are stuck together on a piece
of wax thread,which is fastenend on the inside
of the card with the "meow" lables that are made
with a dymo labler.

Thanks for looking!
Have a creative day!

Sunday Scrap Page: Boat Day

Today we were on our boat
and I made some special pictures
that I used to make today's scrap page.

For this page I used the same stamp
on stencil technique as I used on the card
yesterday. It fits perfect with the water theme.

The paper is from Club Scrap 2012 Come SailAway.

This is the border for which I used a Club Scrap
stencil and ink with the mini cloisonné fish
by Michael Strong and the seaweed that
comes with the turtle stamp.

The larger fish is stamped with versamark
and embossed with clear embossing powder.
Then I colored it with a blending tool 
and used the colors laggon,
leaf and neon orange by Club Scrap.

For the eye of the fish I used a sticky gemstone.

The journaling is printed with the computer,
the font I used is named Agency FB


Have a creative day!
