Kraftin' Kimmie - Inspirational Wednesday

Hallo allemaal/ hello everybody,

Today it's my turn again to give you some extra inspiration on Inspirational Wednesday! This time around i decided not to make a card but some rather fun ATC Cards. And to stay in the Christmas mood i used the Santa from the Dear Santa stamp set.

Used products: Dear Santa, Wicked Black hybrid ink, Liquid Applicator, Authentique papers, Dutch Doobadoo Stencil, Vintage photo and walnut stain distress ink, Marianne Design ATC Die and stamp.


First of from Copic Paper i die cut the smallest die out of the ATC die set. I Then stamped the Santa three times using my Tim Holtz stampin platform. I colored the Santa's up using my Copic Markers and fussy cut them. On some parts of Santa i did some Liquid Applicator which i heat set.


Out of stamping paper i die cut the smallest die from the ATC die set and made de background of all three cards. With vintage photo, a stencil some small stamps, water and white opaque mixed with water i made the background.


With the largest die from the ATC die set i die cut the design paper three times which i then distressed with some walnut stain. 


Stamped the sentiments on some stamping paper, vut them out and distressed them with Walnut stain and glued it on the card using 3-d tape.

I hope i inspired you today!

Merry Christmas, to the one i love

Hallo allemaal,

Daar was ik weer, ik ging gisteren ook nog aan de slag met de Deck the howls van My Favorite Things, deze combineerde ik met de Die-Namics trifold slider.

Gebruikte Producten: Deck the howls stempel en stans, Tweet Holidays stempel en stans, Make your self at home stempel en stans, Puppy love stempel. Balloon strings achtergrond stempel, Die-Namics trifold slider, Die- Namics Rectangle peek a boo window.


Met Memento inkt stempelde ik alle stempels twee keer, één keer  voor de voorzijde en één keer voor de binnenzijde. Ik kleurde alles in met mijn Copic Markers en stanste alles uit met de bijbehorende stansen.

Voor zowel de voor als de binnenkant maakte ik een huiskamer achtergrond, ik heb hier een aantal weken geleden een tutorial over gegeven deze kun je hier vinden.


Op het paneel aan de binnenzijde maakte ik een opening zodat ik het mechanisme van de kussende teckels weg kon werken dit deed ik met de rectangle peek a boo stans. 

Ik stanste de kleinste stans van de trifold slider twee keer uit acetate en maakte het mechanisme vast op de binnenkant van de kaart. Ik knipte de teckels wat af zodat ze vrij bewegen in het mechanisme en plakte het frame met 3-d tape op de basiskaart. 

Daarna beplakte ik zowel de voor als de achterzijde met alle stempels zodat het een gelijke scene wordt.


Fijne dag allemaal!

Groet, Marieke

Hallo allemaal,

Vandaag met dit schitterende weer ging ik aan de slag met de nieuwe release van My Favorite Things. Ik combineerde de leuke vogels met de schets en color challenge en dit is het resultaat.

Stanste de rechthoek uit smooth white cardstock, daarna stanste ik het peek a boo window twee keer. Legde dit aan de kant en uit Gravel grey cardstock maakte ik een panel dat 0,5 cm groter is. 

Met de distress inkt maakte ik de achtergrond op een panel nadat ik de vakken overgenomen had met potlood. Met witte Copic Opaque gemengd met water maakte ik sneeuw spetters op de gekleurde vlakken. Maakte de banner uit Gravel grey en heat emboste de tekst met wit embossing poeder.

Stempelde alle stempels met Memento inkt en stanste ze uit met bijbehorende stansen. Kleuren alles in met mijn Copic Markers en plakte ze op de kaart.

Krafty Peek day 3: Holiday village + Anything Goes challenge

Hello everyone! 

Today is day three of the  October release of Kraftin' Kimmie stamps and today we are showcasing a set by artist Melissa Baker-Nguyen! Secretly i think this is my personal favorite from this release.

And it's called Holiday village!



It's a versatile stamp which contains 18 images and five sentiments!

Used products: Wicked Black, Enchanting Emerald and Ruby Red hybride inks, Die-Namics snowdrifts, Die-Namics single stitched circle frame.



With masking paper i cut a panel 10 x 10 cm and die cut it using a circle die. I adhered it to the front of the card. Using the Enchanting Emerald and Ruby Red hybrid inks i made the backgrounds. 

Die cut the circle frames six times and set them aside. Then i die cut the snow and stamped the sentiments using Wicked black. I adhered the snow between layer one and two and cut the sides. Then i adhered the rest of the circles.



Stamped the images using Wicked black and colored them in using my Copic Markers. Fussy cut all the images and arranged them the way i wanted. I ended up stamping the Santa with Wicked black on the red card and using some crystal Nuvo drops on the Green card,

Have a nice day!
