Copic Marker Benelux - Time to Celebrate

Hallo allemaal!

Hi all!


Toen ik net startte met kaarten maken, bleef ik heel erg hangen op 1 techniek. Al mijn kaartjes hadden dezelfde kleuren, dezelfde lay-out en veel dezelfde embellishments. Sinds een tijdje "verplicht" ik mezelf om af en toe uit mijn comfort zone te gaan, en ik kan je vertellen dat het best goed bevalt! Ik hoor jullie denken, wat bedoel je San? 
Nou, ik zal het je laten zien met dit kaartje!


When I first started cardmaking, I only used 1 technique. All my cards had the same colors, embellishments and lay-out. A while ago I challenged myself to go outside my comfort zone, and I must admit, I quite like it! I can hear you thinking: What do you mean San? Well, for example, this whole card!


Ik heb een dubbele easelkaart gemaakt. Het papier dat ik heb gebruikt is van American Crafts.

I made a double easel card, using American Crafts papers.

Het afdrukje dat ik heb gekleurd is van Whimsy stamps, ze heet Flo en is ontworpen door Art by Mi Ran. Ik heb natuurlijk mijn Copic Markers weer gebruikt.

The image I used is a rubber stamp from Whimsy, designed by Art by Mi Ran. She is called Flo. Of course I used my Copic Markers again.

Huid/Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, E13 en E93 voor de wangetjes/ for the cheeks
Haar/Hair: E40, E41, E43, E47
Ogen/Eyes: G43, G46
Jurk/Dress: R22, R24, R27
Boeket/Flowers: Y00, Y02, Y06, YR15, YR16, RV52, RV55, G43, G46


 De klok is gemaakt met een mal van Dutch Doobadoo. De wijzerplaat heb ik gemaakt met Dutch Doobadoo structuur pasta en hierover zijn glitters gestrooid toen de pasta nog nat was. Zo gaat het prachtig glitteren, maar helaas is dat moeilijk op de foto vast te leggen.

The clock shape is made with a template from Dutch Doobadoo, and the numbers are made with the same template and some of their structure paste. While the paste was still wet, I sprinkled some glitter on it. It is really sparkly, but that is hard to capture on photo.

 De sentiment is van een setje van Whimsy stamps. Ik vond dit helemaal bij de prachtige klok passen, tijd om een feestje te vieren. Ik heb de tekst gebruikt om de easel staande te houden, en de bloemetjes dragen hier ook aan bij

The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps, and matched my "time-themed" card perfectly. I used the sentiment to hold up the easel, and the Wild Orchid crafts flowers are helping with that,


Om mijn kaartje helemaal af te werken, heb ik wat kant en lint gebruikt, en aangezien we het hier toch over "tijd" hebben, vond ik de klok charm wel passen.

To finish off my card, I added some ribbon and lace, and added a clock charm


Ik hoop dat jullie het weer leuk vonden, en dat ik jullie weer heb kunnen inspireren.

This was it for today, I hope I was able to inspire you.

Time for a brand new challenge at Love to Create. I hope you all started making Christmas cards, because our theme is Make it for Christmas! If you haven't already started, this is the perfect opportunity to start! Our sponsor for this challenge is Art by Mi Ran, and she is offering 3 images of the winner's choice! Just click on the banner below to visit the shop.

Art by Mi Ran also generously provided some images to the DT to work with, and this is what I created.

 Did you see I didn't use ANY designer paper, just cardstock? The green strip is embossed with an embossing folder from Cuttlebug, and the white borders on the purple cardstock are heat embossed. The stamp I used for it, is from a set from Noor!Design.

 The image I used is called Winter Sofia and she can be found here, Of course I used my Copic Markers again to color the image, and I used the following.
Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, E13 and R93 for blush

Art by Mi Ran - Happy Holidays

Hi all!!

Today is my turn to host on the Art by Mi Ran Showcase blog, so let me show you the project I made.

I made a 13,5 cm (5,5inch) square card. The papers I used are by Bo Bunny, except for the brown paper with the stars. I made that myself with some brown cardstock, a star mask from Dutch Doobadoo, and their structure paste. I think this mask is perfect for Christmas! 
 For my card, I decided to use the recently released image. This lovely girl is called Elfie Elizabeth, and she can be found here. I used my Copic Markers again to color the image, and I used the following.
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E13, and E93 for blush.
Hair: E53, E55, E57
Clothes: R35, R46, R59
Shoes and gifts: YG93, YG95, YG97, E40, E41, E43
On the furry areas I used some Stickles to make it stand out a little more.
 The brad with Happy Holidays is from the brad set from the Bo Bunny papers I used.
I made a little flower by using a white and a red flower, and two holly leaves. They are held together with a berry brad.

This was it for today, I hope you like it! Thanks for visiting my blog. Please leave a comment and become a follower, I appreciate it!

Whimsy Stamps DT-Call

Hi all!

I saw the Whimsy DT-Call post a while ago on Facebook, and I thought I'd give it a try!


Whimsy Stamps is a brand I love, every single designer they carry is gorgeous!!

For this card, I decided to use Summer Fairy from Wee Stamps by Sylvia Zet. I got this stamp free with a magazine a while back, so I decided to pull it out and use it. If you want to buy this image in rubber, you can find it here, and here for a digital version.
The papers I used for my card are by Bo Bunny, Primrose collection. All edges are inked with Distress Ink Walnut Stain.

I started stamping the image, pulling out my Memento. Pressed my inkpad on the stamp, and stamped the image, and I didn't see anything.... OOPS, I just used Angel Pink instead of Tuxedo Black... Never did No-Line technique before, so this is really my first try at it. I am not really happy with the result, but it's not bad for a first try I guess! I used my Copic Markers to color the image, and I used the following.
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E13 and E93 for the cheeks and lips.
Hair: E33, E35, E37, E49
Dress: YG60, YG63, YG67
Shoes: RV21, RV23, RV25, RV29
Wings: YG60, YG63, RV21, RV23
I used my Nestabilities Circle die to cut out the image, and matted it with a scalloped circle

I used some pink ribbon to tie a bow and added a jumbo pearly rhinestone from Wild Orchid Crafts. I also tucked 2 pieces of filmstrip underneath. I made them with the Noor Design Filmstrip die.

The sentiment I used is also from Whimsy stamps, it's from the Party Mini Letter Seals set, which you can find here.
All flowers I used are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

This was it for today, I hope you all like it!! Now please keep your fingers crossed for me :)

Hugs, Sandra

Art by Mi Ran - Merry Christmas

Hi all!!

Today is my turn to host the Art by Mi Ran blog, and I made a project with Lady Penelope! You can find the image here. The image is not specifically for Christmas, but since our theme this month is Christmas with untraditional colors, I decided to make her into a Christmas card.

The paper I used for my card is from PaperMania, except from the pink paper with the white dots. I made that piece myself, using some Dutch Doobadoo structure paste and one of their masks. The large pink diecut on top of my card is made with a die from Noor Design.

 The sentiment is also made with a die from Noor Design. I cut it once from pink card stock, and once from kraft cardstock, and layered them on top of eachother
To finish off my card I punched some snowflakes with my Martha Stewart punch, and added some bling in the centers!

I hope I was able to inspire you again. Thanks for your visit, and hope to see you next time!

Copic Marker Benelux - Sunflower Sprite

Hallo allemaal!

Vandaag laat ik jullie de kaart zien die ik voor het Copic Marker Benelux Blog heb gemaakt.

Dit kaartje is anders dan jullie van mij gewend zijn. Ik ben namelijk uitgedaagd door een vriendin van me om eens een kaart zonder embellishments te maken. Ik kan je zeggen dat het een zware bevalling was haha! Geen lintjes, kantjes, bloemetjes, pareltjes, niks voor mij! :P


De digi die ik voor deze kaart gekleurd heb, is van Aurora Wings, ze heet Sunflower Sprite.
Ik heb de volgende Copic Markers gebruikt.
Huid: E000, E00, E11, E13 en E93 voor de wangetjes
Bloemblaadjes: R83, R85, R89, Y32, Y35, Y38
Blaadjes: G40, G43, G46

Het papier dat ik heb gebruikt voor mijn kaart is van My Minds Eye.

Ik hoop dat ik jullie weer heb kunnen inspireren! Gaan jullie de uitdaging om geen embellishments te gebruiken ook aan? Ik zie jullie creaties graag!

Liefs, 

Sandra
