Divas by Design - Bundle of Joy

Hi all!

Welcome to a very brand new challenge of Divas by Design! Our theme this week is Bundle of Joy, so we want to see some Baby themed projects!
Our sponsor for this challenge is Sir Stampalot. Just click on the banner below to go to their shop.


This is what I created for this challenge.
Got you, huh! There is not much to see yet, but wait 'till I untie my bow!
Tadaaaa!! Isn't this adorable? I used a Dutch Doobadoo template for the shape of the outer panels. The papers I used are by Authentique, and all edges are inked with Distress Ink Black Soot.
The image I used is by MelJen´s Designs and he is called Baby Shower. He can be found here. I used my Copics again to color him, and I used the following.
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E13 and R20 for his cheeks.
Diaper: C00, C0, C2, C5
Umbrella: B95, B97, B99, BG11, BG13, BG15
Handle: C5, C7

The sentiment is created with Noor Design Scrabble stamps. I heat-embossed them, after I used Stampin Up's Whisper White ink to stamp them. The ribbon I used is from American Crafts.

That was it for today, I hope you like it! Please pop over to Divas by Design and join us!

Love to Create - Vintage Romance

Hi all!

It's Monday again, which means a new weekly challenge at Love to Create! This week we want to see some VINTAGE ROMANCE! Oh la la!
We have 2 amazing sponsors for this challenge, just click on the banners below to go to their shops!
Tsunami Rose is offering a digital kit


Sami Stamps is offering a $12 gift certificate
Sami Stamps

Both sponsors generously provided materials to work with to the DT, and this is what I came up with.
The papers I used are by Tsunami Rose, from the Mechanical Error journaling kit. You can find the kit here. I used my Tim Holtz distressing tool to all the edges of the papers, and I used some Distress Ink Vintage Photo after distressing.
The image I used is by Sami Stamps. She is called On my Mind, and can be found here. I used my Copic Markers to color the image, and I used the following colors
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E13 and R20 for blush
Hair: E53, E55, E57
Dress: C5, C7, 100

The image is cut out by hand and added to a Nestabilities oval die cut.
I used some pearl string around the oval. The flowers I used are by Wild Orchid Crafts. I made the 2 hat pins by myself, to emphasize the vintage look.
The lace I used is really really vintage, I think it's about 40 years old. I used a butterfly punch to make a butterfly, and I added some pearls in the centre with my pearlmaker pen. I also used that pen to add the tiny pearls to the oval. To finish my card I added a charm.

That was it for today, I hope you like it. Please click to go to Love to Create and join us!

Simply Create Too - No digi or Stamped image

Hi all!

It's time for a new challenge at Simply Create Too! This was a really hard one for me, as it is not allowed to use a digital or stamped image! I always have a colored image on my card, so I really had to think about handling this one.
Anyway, this is what I created.

My sister in law and her boyfriend recently started living together so I made this as a gift for them. I used an MDF heart from Let's Get Bizzee, and I used some Prima Marketing Papers on it. I used some Distress Ink Vintage Photo on the edge
I used some corrugated chipboard, and I used my Tim Holtz clock die. I also diecut a kraft scalloped circle and a white circle. This is the place where they can add a pic from them together.
I used a doily and a heart shaped button from my stash. I also added some just to have different textures.
And this wouldn't be finished without a large flower bouquet, so I used various different Wild Orchid Crafts flowers for this piece.

That was it for today, I hope you all like it. Please pop over to Simply Create Too and join us!

I'd love to enter the following challenges:
Crafty Girls Challenge - Anything goes
Scrapping 4 Fun challenge - Anything goes
Craftitude - Anything goes with corrugated paper
ABC-Challenge - J is for Just as you like

Now, that was a lot of info, right? I'll show you my project now!
I made a 5,5 inch square card, using some lovely Echo Park Papers. I went through my files and found this sketch, but I can't seem to find it anywhere again, so I can't link back to it.

I made a little tag with the sentiment, and it is in Dutch. It says congrats on your pregnancy! I stamped it in Stampin Up Whisper White ink and used some detail white embossingpowder on it.
Of course I couldn't help myself, so I had to make a flower bouquet. All flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts. To finish off my card I used several red rhinestones from my stash.
