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

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.

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.

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,

Copic Colourstock Tutorial en The Sketchy Challenge.

Hallo allemaal,


Vandaag heb ik voor jullie een video tutorial waarin ik laat zien hoe je op twee verschillende manier een achtergrond kunt maken met het gebruik van Copic Markers. In de video laat ik zien hoe je een losse stempel "grond" en de afbeelding sprekend maakt. Ook laat ik zien hoe je door het gebruik van een achtergrond stempel en Copic Markers een ruimte creëert waardoor je afbeeldingen in een huiskamer plaatst. Veel kijkplezier.



Voor het "gronden" van de stempel gebruikte ik een Snoesje (HM 9448) van Marianne Design.


Bij de huiskamer maakte ik gebruik van een Achtergrond stempel van My Favorite Things genaamd Balloon Strings. Je kunt iedere achtergrond stempel gebruiken, het dient als behang dus afhankelijk van welke stempels je in de huiskamer wilt plaatsen kies je de achtergrond stempel. Je zou de huiskamer ook kunnen maken zonder de achtergrond stempel. Je volgt dan de zelfde stappen.


Hierbij de volledige uitwerking van het Snoesje voorbeeld. Wil je dat de afbeelding nog wat meer spreekt dan kun je er altijd voor kiezen om een andere kleur Copic Markers achter het meisje te doen.


Hierbij de gebruikte Copic makers voor het maken van de kaart van Snoesje. Ik maakte gebruik van de sketch die vanaf vandaag loopt op het Sketchy Challenge Blog.

Fijne dag allemaal!

Groet, Marieke

My Favorite Things Superstar contest - Clean & Simple Genius

Hello all,

So here it is, my card for the Clean & Simple categorie for the superstar contest. Last year i was one of the winners in this categorie and i figured i could not let this categorie pass by. But i tell you it cost me some sleepless nights! But after two evening off holding every stamp and thinking out ideas i finaly figured something out. I tweaked it at my desk and ended up with this. And i'm really pleased with it!


Used products: Safari Friends and In Paris stamps, Blueprint 29 (rectangle die), Cement gray, Black Licorice and Tickled pink hybrid ink. 


Used Copics: 
Grass - YG17, YG13, YG11
Flowers - R27, R24, R32, R35, R37, R59, R81, R83, R85
Elephant - N10, N8, N7, N6, N5, N4, N3, N2, W5, W3, W1


For the flowers i used the hearts in the In paris stampset i stamped them with Tickled pink and masked them off. The elephant i stamped with Cement Grey and masked off aswell. Then i made the grass and colored the rest is.


This was my sketch before i started on my card. This way i could see if i wanted the hearts out of the trunk or not. Originally i had a speech bubble in mind but i preferred the way i did it now!

Have a lovely day!

Greets, Marieke
