Days of Summer

Hello everyone,
Hallo allemaal,

Today I have another card for Hobbycompleet de Duif to share.
Voor het blogbericht van vandaag voor Hobbycompleet de Duif, heb ik een kaart gemaakt.


The background was made with a Katzelkraft stamp which I inked with Distress Oxide ink in Wild Honey and then sprayed with water. That is how you get this watery effect. I then stamped the flower and coloured the stem with a coloured pencil. The flower head was stamped again on white card stock and coloured with Copics. I cut it out and adhered it to the card. Lastly I stamped the words, added the washi tape and adhered the panel to a white card. 

De achtergrond is gemaakt met een stempel van Katzelkraft. Ik heb deze be-inkt met Distress Oxide Inkt in de kleur Wild Honey en daarna heb ik er water over verneveld en afgedrukt. Zo krijg je deze waterige afdruk. Daarna heb ik de bloem gestempeld en de steel met een kleurpotlood groen gemaakt. De bloem zelf is nog een keer gestempeld en ingekleurd met Copics. Daarna heb ik het uitgeknipt en opgeplakt. Als laatste heb ik de text gestempeld, een stukje washitape toegevoegd en het geheel op een witte kaart geplakt.

Glitter makes everything better

Hello everyone,

We have a new release; there are two a month most months. This time it is called 'Sparkles and Sprinkles' and it is very cute. I made a little art journal spread with a couple of the images.



I made this spread in my little book that I made for PaperArtsy. I used their Fresco Chalk Acrylics for the prints and also some of their stamps and stencils. 
All the prints (about 30) were then glued together into a little book. Anyway I coloured one of the girls and some of the flowers with Copic Markers and cut them out. I used a stencil and white paint to add some more flowers. 
I then tore some words out of a dictionary that are relevant to the pages like glitter, shine and sparkle and glued them to my pages. I places the girl and the flowers in between those words. 
I added the sentiment which is from the same set and of course some glitter ! I put some in the hearts of the flowers, on her crown and she is also pouring glitter onto the plants. 


Here's a close up of the sparkle !

Dreamy days of summer


Hallo allemaal,

Hello everyone, 
Vandaag heb ik een kaartje, gemaakt voor Hobbycompleet de Duif,  voor jullie. Ik heb hiervoor de mooie bloemenstempels van PaperArtsy (EKC01) voor gebruikt.

Today I have a card to share. I made this for my DT - Hobbycompleet de Duif. I have used Kay Carley's beautiful flower stamps by PaperArtsy. 



Ik heb 2 van de bloemen gestempeld op wit card stock and deze ingekleurd met Copic Markers. Daarna heb ik de gele bloemen rechtstreeks op de kaart geplakt en de witte met foam tape zodat er een beetje hoogteverschil ontstaat.  De tekst bestaat uit twee stempels uit dezelfde set.

I stamped two of the flowers on white card stock and coloured them with Copic Markers. I then cut them out and glued the yellow ones flat onto my card. The white one is popped up with foam tape. The sentiment is from the same set and actually consists of two stamps.

Feed your soul

Hello everyone,

Today I have an art journal page to share. I made this with the fabulous VivaLasVegaStamps! and a gelli print.


This AJ page was made on a gelli print. I added texture to it with a Lego block and a flower stencil. 


I stamped the background and used another flower stencil and white paint to add some more interest. 


I then stamped the tree, lengthened the base and added the sentiment. 

I used the following stamps :

Look on the bright side !

Hello everyone,

I love making postcards and I couldn't resist making another one with one of the new Katzelkraft cats. I love all the new dog and cat stamps... In real life I love dogs but not cats.
Anyway, here is my postcard:


This poor kitty doesn't look very impressed with the rain ! But he has a brolly so "look on the bright side". I made this postcard with a piece of gelli printed paper. I added the rain with white embossing powder and stamped the cat on the card and on a piece of separate white card stock. I coloured him with Copic Markers, cut him out and glued him on his other 'self' on the card. I added a bit of shading and a Tim Holtz small talk sticker to finish it of.. 

I used the following stamps:

Dreamy days

Hello everyone,

and a warm welcome to my post for Um Wow Studio. I have made a tag this time.


And here's what I did to the Chipboard:


This is the chipboard in it's natural state.


I decided just to colour it today. I used Faber Castell Pitt Artists Big Brush Pens. 


This is what it looked like after colouring. I only used two shades of brown for the tops and two shades of green for the leaves. 


Next I clear embossed it. 


The finished article....


A close up of the tag which I treated with Acrylic paint (PaperArtsy - Sage) on the bottom and the right side.  I also added a little bit of stamping. 


I added some dictionary text pieces: 'Dream' on the top and 'Summer' at the bottom. 


I also wrapped some embroidery twine around the tag and added a sentiment from a PaperArtsy Stamp set. 

I used a chipboard from this set :


You'll find it HERE

Plant smiles...

Hello everyone, 

I have a quick extra post today. This adorable image came out today at Vera Lane Studio; she is part of set of a couple of gals and some sentiments too. I made a postcard to send with my 3 ATC's that were given away. 
The sentiment I used is from a different set called 'Organics' but I thought it went perfectly with this little girl. 



Of course I used a gelli print and coloured the girl with Copic Markers; I then cut her out and adhered her to the card. The sentiment was added as well as a tiny strip of black and white paper on the left side. 

Thank you for stopping by today !

Monsters just want to have fun

Hello everyone,

Every month I try and take part in the UK Stampers Forum's tag and postcard swaps. I have finished mine for August and these are them :


The theme for the tag was 'anything goes'. Have used one of my faves Zini's by PaperArtsy on a background of Distress Oxide Inks. 


The theme for the postcard swap was 'buildings' so I used this fab stamp by Lost Coast Designs on a gelli printed background. 

If you like swapping stuff then the UK Stampers Forum FB page is the place to go !

August

Hello everyone,

It's August ! Can you believe it ...

I have made another calendar page for 100 Proof Press Stamps :




I normally make my own backgrounds but for this one I used a piece of pattern paper. It reminds me of boardwalks which remind me of vacation and Summer. 
I stamped this piece of paper randomly and then added the icecreams. They were stamped separately and coloured with Copic markers, cut out and adhered. The word summertime is made with sticky letters.. I hope you are enjoying your Summer !!! 

I have used the following stamps:

Hug me and a new VIDEO !

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my second inspiration post for my challenge over at Country View Challenges.
You might remember the theme : Blues and Greens. I chose this because with pink/orange this must be my favourite colour combination. I have made an art journal page and have filmed the process.



I did add the black numbers after switching the camera off as I thought it needed something else. 

Anyway, I hope you will play along with us and enter the challenge. You could win a £20 voucher to spend in the shop HERE. Just make sure you read the RULES first ! 

Here is the link to the video:



Enjoy ! Thank you for stopping by today !

Celebrate

Hello everyone,
Hallo allemaal,

Today I have a card to share; I made this for Hobbycompleet De Duif. Vandaag heb ik dit kaartje om te laten zien; ik heb het gemaakt voor Hobbycompleet De Duif.



Here's how I made it :
I took a piece of white card stock and stamped Katzelkraft KTZ154 repeatedly with 3 or the new Distress Oxide colours. I then spritzed it with water to make it run. Next I stamped the cat (Katzelkraft Mini 075) on it. I also stamped him on white card stock and coloured him with Copic Markers. I cut him out and adhered on top of the stamped one on the card. I added a sentiment  and some washi tape and that finished the card.

Zo heb ik deze kaart gemaakt:
Op een stukje wit card stock heb ik de Katzelkraft stempel KTZ154 meermaals gestempeld met 3 van de nieuwe Tim Holtz Distress Oxide kleuren. Daarna heb ik er water over gesproeid zodat het ging lopen. Toen dit droog was heb ik de kat erop gestempeld (Katzelkraft Mini 075). Ik heb hem ook apart op wit papier gestempeld, ingekleurd met Copics en uitgeknipt. Hij is daarna over die op de kaart geplakt. Zo hoef je niet elk haartje apart uit te knippen.. 
Ik heb "celebrate" gestempeld en wat washi tape onder zijn voeten geplakt zodat hij niet zweeft en dat was het !

Stand out

Hello everyone,

and welcome to August ! I have a few posts to share to today and this is one of them. It is my project for Visible Image. I have made a card.




On a piece of white card stock I sprinkled Brusho's. I then used my finger to rub them into the paper. Once that was done I used the sentiment stamp from the set and water to stamp onto the card. This is like magic !!! When I had finished stamping the whole card panel I lightly misted it with water. Not too much because everything will blend into one. I think this is a really cool effect and also the only way I can use Brusho's because, control freak that I am, I hate using stuff that behaves unpredictably... lol 
Anyway, I then stamped the legs on the card together with the sentiment. On a separate piece of paper  I stamped the shoe part again, this time with green ink and when this had dried I added some shading with a coloured pencil. I then cut the shoes out and adhered them on top of the ones on the card. A few white accents finished the panel off. I adhered the panel onto a white card. 

I have used the stamp set 'Teenage Kicks' and you'll find it HERE.

It wasn't me

Hello everyone,

It is August 1st and that means a new Challenge over at Country View Challenges.. and this month it is me who set the theme ! Yay ! I chose blues and greens as this is one of my favourite colour combinations. I hope you will play along with us. You might just win a GBP 20,- voucher to spend in the shop ! Just make sure to read the rules HERE.

I made a postcard:


And here's how I made it :



I stamped this fabulous little character on Neenah white smooth card stock with black Memento Ink. 



Next I coloured him with my favourite colouring medium : Copic Markers. 


This is the background I chose.. the blue at the top is a little more turquoise in real life but I find blues and greens difficult to photograph.. It is a gelli print. I always have stacks in stock because it makes my life a lot easier.. 


I have cut him out and you can probably see that you loose a lot of the fine details like eyelashes and hairs. To get around this I simply stamp the image again directly on my card. 


I used Archival Ink because my background is acrylic paint. 


I didn't stamp his feet because there is grass either side which I didn't want. I did manage to stamp him slightly crooked ! lol 



And here is the finished card. The little monster and the sentiment are both rubber-stamps by PaperArtsy designed by Elena Guzinksa. They are sold under the name Zinski Art and I think they are fabulous !

Use your wings

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my blogpost for Roc Nicholas. She designs fabulous stamps for Stampotique Originals. This is one of my favourites and I used her on a mini Art Journal page.


This background was in my stash for ages and I loved it so much I didn't want to use it. Does that happen to you ? It is a mop up page I made after a gelli printing session. Sometimes they come out nicer then the actual print. 
I decided to use "Daisy Head" because she is one of my favourites. I lengthened her body slightly to accommodate the wings. These come from a pack of ephemera by Tim Holtz called Botanical Layers.  It was actually a butterfly that I just the wings off. 
Daisy was coloured with Copic Markers and cut out. The whole thing was finished with some Tim Holtz Small Talk stickers and a piece of dictionary paper. 

You'll find Daisy Head HERE and the all of Roc's fab stamps HERE.
