Let's Doodle!

I made these cards for the challenge on the
I used this month kit by Club Scrap Shibori
that are perfect for the Doodle It challenge.
You can see all the details HERE.

For my cards I used a technique I noticed on the
craftshow I visited last Saturday and lucky me, I had all
the ingredients!
I used color burst turqoise powder 
on the left side of the paper.

Next I took the mini mister and sprayed a big puddle
of water on top of the powder.

Dipping the stamp into the puddle of color burst
I used it to stamp the background for my card.

For this card I also used the stencil that came 
with the Club Scrap Shibori kit.

Next i used the Shibori stamps on top of the
background and with a black marker
I added some dooling on the stencil side.
I must say the stamps look already like I doodled.

The butterfly is cut with a thinlit by Stampin'Up!
and I  used part of the leftside paper for this.
The flower is cut out with a punch from one of my
nespresso metal cups. See my tutorial HERE.

I had so much fun with this technique, I had to try it on another card
as well. Gere i used more of the stamps to doodle and a little pen doodling too.
Left more of the leftside puddle of ink color.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

Coffee Helps!

Yesterday I was at a stamp craftshow and there
were lots of free workshops, I only took one and all the others
I looked at and was inspired for making cards.

This is the first card I made after the show.
The sentiment on the cups is one I bought there!
The cups are by Stampin'Up!
the coffee rings are by Club Scrap
and the beans are a stencil by Karen Burninston.

I am sure you like to know what I got myself
(from my birthday money!):
I got these new Tim Holtz boxes for my alcohol ink bottles
(those I already had!). 

Neww Tim Holtz stencils and stamps and some fun
Penny Black Art/Creativity stamps.

New oxide inks, and other goodies to play with.
It was a great and inspirational day!

Thanks for looking
and have a creative day!

Club Scrap Paper kit is here!

Yesterday my pizzabox with papers and stamps by
Club Scrap arrived. It is the April Shibori kit.
Here you find all the details about what is inside the box.

So right away I cut and  prepared the stamps with the 
mount-it adhesive for rubber stamps. This way the cling
perfectly to your acryl block.

The kit came with a wonderful stencil and I just had to play with it.

So these are the finished cards I made.

Card #1
I used blue and brown ink on the stencil background.
As I want to show of the beautiful stenciled
background I onlu dit a little decoration on the front.
The hooray is cut with a die and the sentiment
is one of the stamps that came with the kit.

I hate throwing away the left over pieces,
so i decorated the inside of the card with it.

Card #2
For this card I used the same stencil and colors,
but yes it does look different.After doing the first
coloring with light blue and brown ink, I took the stencil
of and turned it a little and then colored again.
This way you get a different use of the stencil.

The circles are decorated with the rubber stamp
by using the 2 colors of ink again.
On top the cut out sentiment.

Inside the card some left over piece of the front panel
and the stamped birthday sentiment.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

Happy Birthday to me!

Yeah, today is my birthday!
Here you see me many years ago when I was just 
a one year old having fun and had no idea what 
path was ahead of me.

Now so many years afterwards I am a happy,
married, creative grandma and besides needing more hours
in a day, am as happy as can be! Thanks to my hysband, children,
grandchildren and all my (creative) friends.
Love you all.

Ok, so I made myself a quick birthday card
with the wonderful new April Shibori hybrid kit from
Club Scrap. Can't wait to get my hands on the
real paper and stamps.
(The background is from the Jan. Surprise kit).

Thanks for looking
and have a creative day!

Club Scrap April kit: Shibori

Welcome to a new month of Club Scrap goodies.
This month the kit is called Shibori?
What?! you may say, so here a little explanation:
Shibori is a Japenese indigo fabric dying technique 
dating back to the 8th century.
There is more explanation on the Club Scrap Blog HERE.

For me this blue and white kit is perfect
to play with for my Jewish Holidays.
For my scrapbookpage, I snapped some quick
photo's of my grandsons, when they where here
for our annual matzo lunch.
(I won't show you how the floor looked afterwards!)

This kit is also great for cards
and because of the blue and white combo,
it combines great with other kits.
For this birthday card I used the cake from
the Club Scrap January Surprise kit.

Thanks for looking
and have a creative day!

Happy Easter!

With this card I want to wish all my friends 
a very Happy Easter!

I also want toenter my card to the
where this Wednesday it is Anything goes.
For my card I used papers from Club Scrap's 
March kit: Daffodils. The background of daffodils
and setiment is one of the cut outs that came with the kit.
The egg and the chicks are rubber stamps by
Michael Strong. The egg is stamped on dark brown
paper from the Club Scrap kit and embossed with 
copper kettle embossing powder. It looks so much
like real chocolate this way.
The chick is stamped with brown ink and cut out
and stuck behind the eggs. The ribbon is fron one of my
previous Club Scrap kits.

Hope you all have a wonderful time.
Thanks for looking and 
have a creative day!
