with Michael Strong stamps.
You came here from
and here is some more inspiration for you.
Just couldn't resist making a card for each theme.
One for a wedding and one for Valentine.
they are also the same card, just a different
color and a different sentiment.
Here is the wedding card:

I took out all my tools:
the heart is cut out with the cricut (Storybook)
the background is embossed through the cuttlebug
the sentiment is on a cut out die with a nestabillity

The stamps I used are the mini flower
and the mini bird embossed in white
on white paper.
The sentiment is printed with the computer.

For the Valentine card I did everything the same:

only in red and gold, instead
of white and gold.

For the sentiment I used Michael's word stamp and the
alphabet stamps.

Dude Time Doodles Inspirational Challenge

This month's theme at the
anything *BUT* a card

Some of you are cringing at the thought. "All I do is cards." This challenge is designed to get you out of your comfort zone and thinking outside the fold...ahem, I mean dugout. Okay, outside the box!! The Design Team took the challenge and man, oh man, they really out did themselves! Go to the DTD Challenge Blog and see all the delicious inspiration.

And here is mine:
I made this tool/candy altered altoid tin box for my DH
for Valentine (it is hidden in the closet now).

For this project I used
Cole Miner digital design stamp
by Bonibleux Digital Designs
and the sentiment is by Create with TLC

So I took 2 empte altoid tin boxes and linked them together
on the inside with 2 bolts and nuts.
Fotr this I hammered two holes in the bottom one and the top of
the other box with a big nail.
The handle I got at a hardware store.
Then I dinished my soft dring out of a can and vut it appart.
I drew the lid of the box on paper and than cut it out of the metal can.
As you can see I run it through my cuttlebug with this gars embossingfolder.
Afterwards I added some black stazon ink to make it look worn.
I colored the cole miner with copic markers.
The sentiment is printed with the computer and cut out with a punch.
Also a larger circle in black is punched out and they
are attached by some foam tape. In between
I added some wire to make it look like a bomb.
I added some bolts in the top and some candy in the bottom
to show you it can be used for all kinds of small objects.
1. Use the creations of the Design Team as inspiration.
   Remember, anything BUT a card.

2. You are not required to use BDD images although it would
    make us really really happy and giggle a lot if you did!

3. MUST be a masculine themed card, you can use humor,
    innuendo, be a little naughty, sarcastic, but it has got to be for a DUDE!

4. Be sure to use the InLinkz on the DTD Challenge Blog to submit your creation.

You have one week to link up your projects. We will post the TOP THREE WINNERS and the TOP BLOG WINNER right here on January 25th at 12 PM CST

Have a creative day!

Kalender/ Calendar

Elk jaar begin ik opnieuw met elke maand een kalender pagina
met foto's die ik die maand gemaakt heb.
Hier is de eerste pagina van 2011
met eendjes op het ijs in de Amstel.
Ook hier heb ik net als bij de kaart met het konijn
een patroon gebruikt.
Dit keer van een eend en uitgesneden, gesponst
en daarna met de circle stempel van Michael
Strong er overheen gestempeld.
De winter stempel is van Hero Arts.
Deze kalenderpagina is op A4 formaat.
Every year I start a new calendar with monthly pages.
I use pictures that I have taken that month.
Here you see some ducks on ice in the river near us.
I used the same technique as with the rabbit
card: a temple of a duck this time,
cut it out and sponge ink on the paper and then
I stamped over it with Michael Strong's circle stamp.
The winter stamp is by Hero Arts.
The size of the page is 8,5 x 11 inch.

Have a creative day!

Penny Black Saturday Challenge 133

Here my card for the first
The theme for the challenge is:
"New beginnings"
I made a card for someone who just moved into
her new home with her cat.
I used the stamp Wiskers& Fur 2883J by Penny Black,
the houses are from a set "welcome to the neighberhood"
by Stampin'Up and the letters are from
an unknown set of clear stamps.

Here you can see a close up of the vocal point of the card.
I used a paper piecing technique on the cat stamp.
Do you see the little key charm? A fun detaile over
the letter "o"of the word "home".

Have a creative day!
