My Favorite Things - Guest Blogpost day two.

Hallo allemaal / Hello everyone,

It's day two of me guest designing for My Favorite Things, and today i have two totally different projects.

First of is a project using the super fun and versatile Fireworks stamps. I started making a background using Satly Ocean, Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron, Wilted Violet and mustard seed to make some colorful spots. Then i took my Chipped Sapphire, Black soot and Broken China distress ink and finished blending the sky. 

I made sure my background was dry before i started stamping the fireworks with Versamark ink. When it was dry enough i stamped the fireworks and heat embost it using white embossing powder. Then i finished the sky using my white gelpen to fill in the sky with some "stars"



The Die-Namics Wow i die cut three times from black cardstock and one time out of silver glitter paper and glued them on to each other so there is some dimension. I heat embost the sentiment from You Wow Me on a piece of black paper and die cut the sentiment with the banner from Die-Namics blueprint 27.

I stamped the small crab from Just Beclaws stamp, but before doing that i removed the eyes and the mouth so it looks like we are watching the crabs from behind. i colored the crabs with R29 Copic Marker and then i took my W5 Copic Marker and gave it a darker look.



With the Die-Namics beach scene builder i made the beach using my Copic markers. The sea i colored using B99, B97, B95, Y15, RV04, V17. The beach has a Neenah Desert Storm base and is colored in using E79, E77, E74. 



This card is a large size! It's a double folded card seize 21 x 11 cm. I first cut a panel out of stamping paper and made some clouds using Salty Ocean Distress ink and the cloud stencil.

I thought it would be fun that instead of a bunting i would make a bunting with leaves. So with Green Room, Gumdrop Green and Limelight hybride ink i stamped the leaves from Toucan Do It and die cut them using matching Die-Namics. I glued them on to a string of twine and glued it on the cloud base.


The sentiment i stamped on a piece of black cardstock and heat embost it using white embossing powder. Then i die cut it using the biggest die from the Die-Namics essential fishtail sentiment strips.

I stamped the four birds on some Neenah papers and colored them in using my Copic Markers. I die cut them with the matching Die-Namics adhered them on the line. 



On the bottom part of the double folded card i made a strip of designpaper using two pieces of paper from the Black & White striped paperpack. Then i adhered the panel on to the base using 3-d tape.

Have a lovely day!

My Favorite Things - Guest Blogpost day one.

Hallo allemaal / Hello everyone,

Today i'm joining you with a super post! I'm still stoked on being this month's guest for My Favorite Things Stamps! Today i got some summery inspiration for you. I'm sorry in advance... it's going to be a long post.

First of is a slider card using the Just Beclaws stamp.The idea in my head was to make a slider card where the crab was moving from behind the sand. 

 To start of i made the sand and the water. I cut some kraft paper and die cut two pieces. One of them i die cut using the Die-Namics Beach Scene Builder. The front part i made using a die from the Die-Namics Surf & Turf. I splattered some Walnut Stain distress ink mixed with water on to the part and finished of using  some Walnut Stain on the "sides" of the sand. 


I took a piece of stamping paper and blended in the sea using Cracked Pistasio, Peacock Feathers and Broken China distress ink. I then splattered some water on to it and dept it of with a paper towel. I ended up stamping some waves from the Seaside Seagull stamp using Peacock Feathers and Broken China Distress ink. 

Then i took another piece of stamping paper and made the clouds using Salty Ocean Distress ink and the Mini Cloud Edges Stencil. I adhered the ocean, the beach and clouds on top of each other and die cut it using the Die-Namics Stitched Rectangle Stax set 1.


Now i'm going to make the slider part. First of  i took the biggest straight slider die from the Die-namics Surf & Turf die and cut it in the beach panel. I took a piece of white paper and die cut the slider part from the Die-Namics Volcano and stamped the sentiment from the interactive labels on it. I adhered some 2 mm high 3-d tape on the panel en glued it on a top fold card. 

I stamped the crab from the Just Beclaws stamp and colored him using my Copic Markers and die cut with the matching Die-Namics. I made a small strip and adhered it onto the crab and a slider element. I adhered the slider element on the slider part and the crab is moving now. I stamped the sentiment on the front of the sand part and glued it on the base card using a 1 mm 3-d tape.

I finished the card of using the palm tree and coconuts from the Die-Namics Beach Scene Builder out of cardstock. I stamped the seagull from the Just Beclaws stamp, the balloons and cupcake from the Happy Hippo's stamp. Colored them in using my Copic Markers and die cut them with the matching Die - Namics. As a last detail i put some Glossy Accent on to the balloons and eyes of the crab.


My second card of the day is a underwater scene. I made the background first using Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistasio and Broken China distress ink. On the top of the card i "ended" the sea using the Waves stencil. As a last detail i splattered some water on the distress ink and dept it of using a paper towel. I then die cut the panel using the Die-Namics Stitched Rectangle Stax set 1.

Two pieces of kraft paper i turned into sand using the Die-Namics Stitched Snow Drifts and finished them of using some Vintage Photo distress ink. I always make the scene with stamps on the background so i can decide which stamps i wanne use and which not.


The seaweeds and fishes from the Gill Friends stamp and the crab from Just Beclaws stamp i stamped on some Neenah cardstock using Cement Gray Hybride Ink. I colored them in with my Copic Markers using the No Lines technique and die cut them with matching Die-Namics

On the base i used to sentiments the ConCRABulations is in the Just Beclaws set and on you new home can be find in No Place Like Home Stamp


The Die-Namics Birdhouses i die cut out of Neenah paper and colored them in with my Copic Markers. I gave them a rusty look because they are in the sea after all. I glued everything on to a top fold card.  As a last detail i stamped the air bubbles from Gill Friends above the fish with matching Distress ink.

I hope you got inspired and i will see you tomorrow!

The first one is Merlinda Mermaid


And the second set is Sassy Sophie
I made a card using Sassy Sophie, used products: Echo Park papers, washi tape, Die-Namics cause for celebration, rhinestones, enamel dots.


From with cardstock i cut a topfold card size 13 x 11. I glued a piece of designpaper from the Echo park pack on to it. I cut the word 'happy" from black cardstock and stamped the sentiments with wicked black. I cut them out with my knife and ruller. On the right corner i did some washi tape and glued one of the sentiments on to is and finished of with some rhinestones and enamel dots.




Out  of Neenah paper i cut a rectangle and then i cut a diagonal line. With Wicked Black i stamped Sophie and colored her using my Copic Markers. I cut a piece of red cardstock just a tat bigger and glued the image on to it. I adhered everything to the base card using 3-d tape. Glued the word and the sentiment on to the card and finished off rhinestones and enamel dots.

Have a nice day!
