Hello everyone, 
Hallo allemaal, 

Today I have a square AJ page to share. I made this for my DT Hobbycompleet de Duif
Vandaag heb ik een AJ pagina om te laten zien. Ik heb deze voor Hobbycompleet de Duif gemaakt. 

I started off with a piece of Design paper from 7 Dots studio (6 x 6) and added some stamping with Distress Oxide ink in Iced Spruce. I also inked up the edges with the dame ink. I then stamped the houses on another piece of Design paper from the same series and cut them out. I added a little tiny bit of red to the window frames. I put some Tim Holtz washi tape down and adhered the houses on top. The sentiment was stamped separately and added on one of the houses. Lastly I took my piece to the sewing machine and added some stitching. 

De basis voor deze pagina is een 6 x 6 stuk Design papier van 7 Dots studio maar je kan natuurlijk gebruiken wat je wilt. Ik heb hierop wat gestempeld met Distress Oxide inkt "Iced Spruce" en ik heb deze inkt ook gebruikt om de randjes wat donkerder te maken. De huisjes heb ik ook op DP gestempeld, uitgeknipt en wat kleur toegevoegd aan de kozijnen met een rood kleurpotlood. 
Vervolgens heb ik washi tape van Tim Holtz op geplakt en daar de huisjes op gelijmd. Als laatste heb ik het woord toegevoegd en met de naaimachine rondom de rand gestikt. 

Ik heb de volgende materialen gebruikt:

PaperArtsy ELB32 en ETS06   
Distress Oxide Inkt Iced Spruce  
Archival inkt Jet Black  

Thank you so much for stopping by today !

Three Monster Dwellings

Hello everyone,

I was so very happy when I heard I would get the opportunity to make a project with the brand-new PaperArtsy Stamps designed by Elena Guzinska. There is nice post over at the PaperArtsy BLOG today too.

I have made this :

It was so much fun making these little houses out of grey board. I painted them with Fresco Acrylic paints and then stamped them. The little people were stamped separately, coloured and glued into place.

This one is the only one that has a little monster on the back as well as the front:

2 postcards

Hello everyone,

Yesterday I received the new doggie stamps from Katzelkraft in the post. They are fabulous and I couldn't wait to mount them and use them.

I have made two postcards with them :

Both cards are gelli printed and both dogs were coloured with Copic Markers and cut out. 
I did add some washi tape to the top card and some background stamping to the bottom one. The sentiment are by Katzelkraft too. 

You will find the dogs HERE and HERE

Time waits for no man!

Hello everyone,

I have an art journal page to share today using the lovely new stamps by Visible Image. I love the alphabet stamps, there are more than one of certain letters so that makes is easy to stamp words like 'happy' etc. I stamped them a little wonky but you can line them up really well.

I used a mop up page from my gelli print stack. I really like these; sometimes they are even nicer than the proper prints. 
 I added some background stamping using Archival ink and the pink clocks were heat embossed with pink embossing powder by WOW. 

The letters are stamped on white paper, I then added the circles around them. There is a circle and a square in the set and the letters fit in there perfectly. I used a punch to cut them out. 

I like my words to be wonky so I stamped them wonky on purpose. I added some white dots with a white pen. 

That was it from me today ! 

I used all three new stamp sets for this page. You'll find them HERE.

You also still have time to play in our monthly challenge where the theme is 'Dimension'. I have put my letters spelling 'time' on dimensional tape so they stand out more.

Food !

Hello everyone,

Welcome to my blogpost for VivaLasVegaStamps!  today ! I have made a trio of ATC's to inspire you with and I hope you'll pick up your stamps and make something too !

And here's how I made them:

I started with a gelli print. This is a mop up page. 

I cut the page into three ATC's. There were some small pieces left which I will keep to use as collage material in another project. 

Next I added some stamping. I used VersaMark and WOW embossing powder and also Archival Ink in the colour Watering Can. 

I stamped all the images on book paper with Archival Ink. I always use the edges of the pages for the sentiments I am going to use. That way they have the same colour as the images. Next task is to cut everyone out. 

Having a look where I am going to place everything.

And here is the finished result. 

I hope you enjoyed this short tutorial. 

I have used the following stamps:

Hallo allemaal,
Hello everyone, 

Vandaag heb ik een kaart voor jullie.

I have a card to share today. I made this for my DT at Hobbycompleet De Duif. This fabulous stamp is by Carabelle Studio.

Het is een hele simpele kaart geworden. Ik heb de afbeelding op een stukje aquarelpapier gestempeld en daarna ingekleurd met Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Toen ik helemaal happy was met hoe het eruit zag het ik het woord Daydeams toegevoegd en het paneeltje op een kaart geplakt.

This was a very simple card to make. I stamped the image on watercolour card and coloured it in with Zig Clean Color Brush Markers. The sentiment is from a PaperArtsy set and was added after colouring. I then adhered the panel onto a white card. 

Ik heb de volgende materialen gebruikt:
I have used the following materials:

Neenah Aquarel papier (die papier is fantastisch ook voor Distress Oxides; en het is mooi wit)
                PaperArtsy ELB34
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers in de kleuren: 045-041-071-072-026-021-036-050-070-020-022-024

Art journal

Hello everyone,

This week starts a new challenge over at the Stampotique Designers' blog and the theme is "Stencil it". Also we have a collaboration with Eileen Hull this month. We got sent a few goodies by Eileen and one of them was her  'Heartfelt journal'. This is a die set to cut out the bits you need to make your own journal. We received the already cut out bits and I made this with it:

The book was put together first and then I added crackle paste through a flower stencil. I then painted it... Once that was all dry I inked the edges with Archival Ink and stencilled some more with white paint and a dot stencil. I added stamping and the little monster. He was stamped and coloured with Copics, cut out and glued on. 

I filled the book with paper and will use it for my journaling...

A close up of the crackle... 

I have used the following stamps:
