Happy Leap Day!

Only once in 4 yours we have this day,
so I just could not resist making something fun!
The frogs are made with different sizes oval and circle punches.
All over the web you can find tutorials.
The sentiment I made with the computer,
all papers used are by Club Scrap.
These fun sitting frogs I found and were vith a video
tutorial HERE.
These fun frogs are open in the back and I added some
candy frogs for today, but you can also add a
chocolate. They are great for name cards on the table
for a party.
Here one more card I made. Frogs are always such happy
animals to make and make you smile.
Hope you all have a wonderful and fun day today.
Have a creative day!

TSSC 210

 It has been some time since I did the Techno Stamper's sketch.
But here it is again. This week it is sketch 210.
Lately I am getting into baby cards and today I tried
to make something vintage. I used digital stamps by Create with TLC:
the baby picture(freebie) and the sentiment
(Encore word art).

The images were printed on kraft paper and colored with pencils.
Background is a piece of scrap paper from my stash.
The rosette is the smallest size from the Tim holtz die.
Have a creative day!

Oscar Night 6

Ok, not everyone will be watching the Oscar Award show on television.
So you have to watch your own movie and I have made 
a fun package out of this.
I found this on the internet, so it is not my own
Please go HERE for all details on how to make
this and download your template.

 I made this for the "Hooray for Hollywood" challenge 
at the Michael Strong stampgroup
and of course I have used
 Michael Strong's cloisonné mini star.

But backgroundpaper and sentiments are by Create with TLC
and go to Paulettes blog and have the background paper free
in all kinds of colors.
Inside the dvd case I have the Blues Brothers.
One of my old time favourite mouvies, because the
music makes me so happy!

Have a fun and creative day!

Oscar Night 5

 Today I have a "swing" card for you.
The star is first cut with a spelbinder and used as a template.
If you never have made a swing card, then there
are many tutorials online. I found one HERE.
 I used some pictures from internet,
stars from Tim Holtz and Michael Strong,
sentiment and filmstrip from Create with TLC.

This is how the card looks flat. I have attached a star on both sides.
 Embossed some kraft core paper with a star embossing folder
and added some vintage photo distress ink.

The men are stamped with frayed burlap distress ink and
punched out with  square punch and glued to the filmstrip.

The star is a stamp by Michael Strong,
the men um stamps are by Tim Holtz
The camera ad sentiment by Create with TLC
and the bingo card I found on the internet.
The metal embellishments are idea-ology elements

Oscar Night3

I made this card with a fun technique from the
Technique Junkies Newsletter Aug/Sept 2009
called Punched Window.
It is a pitty that gold and silver are not such good colors 
to either scan or photograph,
but I hope you can imagine these colors on the right spot.

I have used the cloisonné mini star by Michael Strong
embossed in silver or gold and the images and sentiment are

Have a creative day!

Oscar Week

 Soon there is the Oscars Academy Awards 2012.
A big event in Hollywood.
How about making a tag Tim Holtz style?
 I started out cutting a tag with the tag die
and glued randomly some musical tissue
tape on it. With fired brick distress stain I 
covered the tag completely and sprinkled some
waterdrops on it. Now I dried it with my heat gun.
When it was completely dry, I took 
the star embossingfolder and ran the tag through
the cuttlebug ans sprayed it with gold
glimmer mist. Idried it all again.
Now i sanded down the stars, distressed the borders and 
added some frayed burlap distress ink on it with 
a blending tool.

To decorate the tag, I punched out some stars
and fastened them with staples.
I made a faux filmstrip piece
with a punch and stamped Tim's
men on it with white.

On the ticket tag you find a sentiment from a wonderful
nes set at Create with TLC called: Hollywood Magic.
The tag is finished of with a star ribbon and
of course an Oscar.
But who will be the winner.......
that is still in the envelop until the big event
on Febuary 26.

Have a creative day!
