Copic Marker Benelux - Special Delivery!

Goedemorgen lieve Copic fans,

 Ik vind het altijd leuk om bloemen te kleuren, maar ik vind haren kleuren ook altijd fantastisch om te doen. En wat is er nou beter dan bloemen in haren? Juist, dat is ideaal voor mij!

Deze keer heb ik een doosje van Kimya gepimpt, erg leuk als je snel een cadeautje nodig hebt! Ik heb deze gelijk nadat ik 'm gemaakt had gevuld met snoepjes en envelopje met geld en aan een vriendin gegeven voor haar verjaardag. Dit maakt geld geven toch weer een stuk leuker.


 The digi die ik gebruikt heb is van The East Wind, en ze heet Floral Kisses. Ik heb de volgende Copic kleuren gebruikt.
Huid: E000, E00, E21, E13 en R20 voor de wangen
Haar: E81, E94, E87, E89
Shirt: R00, R02, R05
Bloemen: R00, R02, R05, Y23, Y26, Y28, BG72, BG75, BG78
Blaadjes: YG93, YG95, YG97


 De tekststempel is van Little Darlings Rubber Stamps en paste natuurlijk wel bij het cadeau doosje. De bloemetjes die ik heb gebruikt zijn allemaal van Wild Orchid Crafts.


Het papier dat ik heb gebruikt komt uit een paper pad van Cosmo Cricket. Ik heb alle randjes beïnkt met Distress Ink Vintage Photo. Tot slot heb ik nog een stans van Noor!Design gebruikt. Om een speels effect te creëren, sneed ik mijn gestanste vorm doormidden en plakte de twee delen langs de zijrand en bovenrand.

Dit was het weer voor vandaag, ik hoop dat ik jullie weer heb kunnen inspireren!

Liefs, Sandra

Love to Create Challenge - Lacy or Ribbon, Pearl or Jems and your favorite Valentine colors

Hi all!!

Hope you are doing well! Time for a new challenge at Love to Create, but very sad to announce that this will be the final Love to Create challenge. Jackie decided to close the challenge blog, and I do understand her choice. I really want to thank Jackie for being a great DT-leader and challenge blog owner, and I also want to thank everyone else on the team for being such a warm and friendly group!

On to the details of our final challenge! Our theme is Lace or Ribbon, Pearls or Gems AND your favorite Valentine colors! Our sponsor for this challenge is Oddball Art. Just click on the banner below to visit their shop.



Oddball Arty also generously provided some images to the DT to work with, and this is what I created.

 The papers I used are by My Minds Eye, and they contain both Red and Pink. Those are my alltime favorite colors, so they are also my favorite Valentine colors.

 The image I used is called Kawaii Valentine Giraffe, and can be found here. I used my Copic Markers to color the image, and I used the following.
Skin: R81, R83, R85
Hearts: R89
Nose and hoofs: W2, W3
The sentiment is part of my papers, and it just happened to be in the right place to use it as a sentiment, nothing on purpose. I was just looking where to put a sentiment and found this the perfect one! I used some ribbon and lace from my stash.

This was it for today, I hope you all will join us on Love to Create's final challenge!!

Hugs, Sandra

Sami Stamps

And now on to the challenge, here is our color inspiration picture!


And here is what I made for you all!

 I made a little gift box with my Envelope Punch Board. It was the first time I ever used the board, but it was so easy! The only drawback for me is that the scoreline is on the right, and that is not easy being a lefty... But it worked!
 The image I used is called Butterfly Kisses. The image can be found here. I used my Copic Markers again to color the image, and I used the following
Cat: E23, E25, E27
Butterfly: R22, R24
Feathers: R56, R59
 And here is the back of the box. The papers I used to decorate it are by Authentique, and they match perfect to our color challenge.
I used some velcro to close the box. I am going to fill this box with liquorice, and give it to a sweet friend of mine who is going to Malta for 6 months.

This was it for today, I hope you like it! Please pop over to Love to Create and join us!

CreaMiep DT - Geniet van je vrije tijd

Hallo allemaal!

Ik vind het een beetje spannend, want vandaag is mijn eerste post op het blog van CreaMiep! Ik vind het echt super om in het design team te zitten en ik hoop iedereen volop te kunnen inspireren!

Ik heb ervoor gekozen om een flessenhanger te maken. Dit project is wellicht vreemd voor de mensen die mij goed kennen, ik maak namelijk vrijwel NOOIT projecten zonder gekleurd afdrukje :)
Dit keer had ik zin om mezelf eens goed uit te dagen, en te gaan voor een projectje zonder stempelafdrukje.


 Om de vorm van de flessenhanger te maken heb ik de mal van Dutch Doobadoo gebruikt, deze vind je hier.


 Ik heb stukken stof gerafeld en er een bloem van gemaakt, Hier bovenop heb ik diverse bloemen gebruikt, namelijk Chrystantemums, Sweethearts en Roses 1,5 cm
Ik heb ook nog wat plakparels gebruikt.

De tekst is gestempeld met Memento inkt op het kraftpapier van Joy! De tekst komt uit een set van Noor!Design

Ik hoop dat ik jullie weer heb mogen inspireren!

Hugs, Sandra

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

 I kept my card pretty simple, because the paper I used is pretty full. The papers I used are from a paperpad by Avec, and I love the purple tone in it. I used some sheer purple ribbon as an embellishment, and I punched some snowflakes with my Martha Stewart punch. I also added some purple rhinestones to the centers of the snowflakes and to the corners of the image and the card.
The image I used is called Princess of Snowflake, and she can be found here. I used my Copic Markers to color her up, and I used the following.
Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E21, E11, E13 and R20 for blush

In blijde verwachting - Congrats on your pregnancy

Hallo allemaal!

Hi all!

Gisteren was het mijn beurt om wat te laten zien op het Copic Marker Benelux blog, en nu laat ik hem jullie hier zien!

Yesterday was my turn to host the Copic Marker Benelux Blog, and today I am sharing with you all!

De kaart die ik heb gemaakt is voor mijn doen erg kaal, maar in dit geval vond ik het wel mooi, omdat het design papier best druk is.

The card I made is pretty clean, and not the style I normally have, but since the papers are bright and heavily patterned this quite worked.




Het papier dat ik heb gebruikt vond ik perfect voor deze kaart. Het is de Baby Bump paper pad van BoBunny. De tekststempel is van NoorDesign.
Het afdrukje is een digi van Slinky Tart.

The papers I used for this card are by BoBunny, Baby Bump collection, and they are really fitting for this image. I love the neutral gender colors. 
The sentiment I used is from Noor!Design.
The image I used is called Baby Processing, from Slinky Tart.

Ik heb de volgende Copic Markers gebruikt

I used the following Copic Markers

Huid/Skin: E000, E00, E11, E13
Wangen en lippen/Cheeks and lips: E93, E95
Haar/Hair: W3, W5, W7, 100 (black)
Ogen/Eyes: BG72, BG75
Shirt: Y32, Y35, Y38
Broekje/Pants: R20, R22, R24



Dit was het weer voor vandaag, ik hoop dat ik jullie heb kunnen inspireren!

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

Art by Mi Ran - Happy Birthday

Hi all!

Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas with those you love! I spent Christmas with my hubby and daughter and we visited my parents, so it was really lovely.

Today is my turn to host the Art by Mi Ran Showcase blog, and after all the Christmas and Winter themed card I thought it's time to go bright and colorful!

 I made a pretty big card this time! Usually my cards are 5,5 inch square, but since I was desperate to use the Dutch Doobadoo Polaroid frame, I made a 6 inch square card.
The papers I used are by Authentique. All edges of the papers are inked with Distress Ink Walnut Stain.

 The image I used is called Tulipa, and I absolutely love her! I used my Copic Markers again to color the image, and I used the following markers:
Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, E13 and E93 and E95 for the blush and lips.
Hair and tulips: V000, V12, V15, V17
Clothes and background flowers: BV31, BV34
Eyes, leaf and stems: YG93, YG95, YG97
The green pearls in the background are made with a kiwi colored pearl maker pen.

 The bow is made with some lace from my stash, and I added a big gem from Wild Orchid Crafts to the center.

 The sentiment is in Dutch, and says Congratulations. It was a gold peel off sticker, but I used a blac Sharpie pen to color it black.

All flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts, except from the purple felt ones. I made them myself with a Marianne design die and some purple felt.

This was it for today, I hope you like it! Thanks so much for stopping by, and I would love you to leave a comment :)

Hugs, Sandra
