Have a special birthday!

Hi all!

Something strange is happening with me... Guess what? I am up to date with all my DT-duties and I have some time to create extra projects! I just love this! DT-duties finished until half march! Yay me!

Well, enough bouncing in the room from me, I created a new project.
I made the shape of the card with a template from Dutch Doobadoo. I recently discovered this Dutch brand and I just love these shape-art templates. Better save myself some money to buy new ones too! :)
The stamp I used is called Neveah by Saturated Canary. I used my Copic Markers to color the image and I used the following.
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E13 and R20 for blush
Hair: E11, E08, E09, E18
Dress: YG91, YG93, YG95, R20, R22, R24
I used some vintage lace my MIL gave me. I believe they were on her old curtains and I really love that lace. The ribbon was in my stash and was the perfect color to match my pattern paper. The papers I used are by BoBunny, and all edges are inked with Distress Ink Vintage Photo.
I also attached a charm to my bow with white embroidery floss from my stash.
Of course, the floral piece! I made a little bouquet using some WOC flowers and Prima Flowers.

That was it for today, I hope you all like it!

I would love to enter the following challenges:
Crafty Ribbons Challenge - DT-call
Eureka Challenge - Anything goes
Craft-Dee Bowz - Handmade bow
Crafting Desert Diva's - Shaped Cards
Creative Card Crew - Recipe (1 ribbon, 2 papers, 3 pearls)

Today is sunday again, which means a new challenge at Robyn's Fetish! This week we want to see LOTS OF GLITTER.
We also have a fabulous sponsor this week: The Paper Shelter! The Paper Shelter is offering a $20 gift certificate for their shop, how generous is that?! Just click on the banner below to go to their shop.
THE PAPER SHELTER

The Paper Shelter also provided some images to the DT to work with, thanks so much! This is what I created with it.
About a year ago, this template was in the Magnolia Ink Magazine, and I thought it was appropiate to use it with this image. The template is made by Sandra's Scrapshop, and you can also buy it there. I think you can already see all the glitter I used, right? The edges of the pattern paper are covered with glitter, as well as the lower part of the ice skate.
The image is by The Paper Shelter and is called Fantasy on Ice. The image can be purchased here. I used my Copic Markers to color the image, and I used the following markers.
Skin: E00, E21, E13
Hair: E50, E51, E53, E55
Clothes: BG000, BG01, C00, C0, C2
I also used some Stickles on the "fur"on her clothes and to the ice star in her hair, but it is hard to see on the picture.

That was my card for today, I hope you like it!
Now pop over to Robyn's Fetish and join us with your glittered project!

Happy Birthday Daddy!

Hi all!

How are you all doing? I am having an excellent day. Today is hubby's birthday, he is turning 31!
With the birth of our daughter Tessa, we decided to not give eachother gifts this years, but we will be buying ourselves a camcorder. So he is expecting no gift. Can't wait to see the look on his face if Tessa will gift this gift to him! He didn't say he don't want a gift from Tessa!
Tessa "bought" her daddy some DVD's he wanted, so I made a giftbag to put them in. It is a giftbag from the Dutch company Kimya, they sell all types of packaging and I love their stuff! Onto the decoration.
I cut a piece of white card stock to cover up the front and I used a star embossing folder on it to give it some texture. I also inked the edges with Distress Ink Vintage Photo.
The image is by CC-Designs and is called Cupcake Trevor. He is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Markers. I used the following.
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E13 and R20 for blush.
Hair: E33, E35, E37
Pants: B95, B97, B99
Shoes: E35, E37
Cupcake: E33, E35, C00, C0, C2, C5, YG93, YG95
I used a diecut by Noor!Design as a border for my paper, and some metal stars from my stash as decoration. I used some twine to sew them to my papers.
The sentiment is by Nicole Verkooijen and says To the loveliest dad.

That was it for today, I hope you like it. See you next time!

Hugs, Sandra

Mini album Tessa's First Christmas!

Hi all!

Not going to tell you a very long story, but this will be a post with a TON of pictures!
I made the base of a mini album on a christmasworkshop 2 years ago, and never got an idea how to use it. Now our daughter was born 6 weeks too early and she celebrated her first Christmas with us in hospital, so this was the perfect moment to dedicate this mini-album to this wonderful moment!
The base was the idea of Tiets, created with envelopes from Kimya.
The papers I used are by BoBunny, Father Christmas.
All edges of the papers are distressed with the Tim Holtz Distresser and inked with Distress Ink Vintage Photo. All flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts, and all ribbon and lace by The Ribbon Girl. All tags in the album are also by Kimya.

Here are all the pictures!













This was my mini-album, there is lots and lots to see.
I hope you all like it, and see you next time!

ROBYN'S FETISH CHALLENGE #195 - WINTER CARDS

Hi all!

Welcome to a new challenge at Robyn's Fetish! This weeks theme is WINTER CARDS and we have an awesome sponsor for this one, Fresh Brewed Design! They are offering 3 images of the winners choice, or a $10 gift card. Just click on the banner below to go to their shop!
FRESH BREWED DESIGNS
Fresh Brewed Designs also generously offered some images to the DT to work with, and this is what I created.
The papers I used do not have a specific winter theme, but they are in different shades of blue, so perfect for winter cards. The papers are by Authentique.
The image I used was sponsored by Fresh Brewed Designs and is called Snow Buddie on Ice and can be found here. I used the following Copic Markers to color the image.
Snow: BG0000
Hat and mittens: B000, B01, B37, B39
Skates: B37, B39, C5, C7.
To make the snow more sparkly, I added some Frosted Lace Stickles to it. I also added a dot of Stickles on his nose.
The snowflakes are punched with a Martha Stewart punch, and I added a rhinestone in the center.
I wanted to use the sentiment Winter Wishes, but I couldn't find the stamp I was looking for. Then I decided to write the sentiment by hand, and I really regret that, because while I was writing I saw the stamp I was looking for was already on my acrylic block... That is like searching for your glasses while they are already on your head... DUMB!

Well, that was it for today, I hope you like it. Now hop over to Robyn's Fetish and join us with your winter cards!

Hugs, Sandra

Have a special birthday!

Hi all!

I have a new card to share with you today. I made an order a few days ago, and it arrived saturday. I was so happy, and I had to use some of the lovely goodies I purchased. Here is the card I made.
The shape of the card is made with a template from Dutch Doobadoo. It was the first time I used one of their templates, but I really like it, so I will use this one more often. And guess what, I think I need more of their templates! :)
The stamp I used is a rubber stamp by Little Darlings Rubber Stamps. It is originally designed by Saturated Canary and is called Breeze. This stamp was also in my order, and I had to color it.
I used the following Copic Markers to color her.
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E13 and R20 for blush and lips.
Hair: E23, E25, E27, E29
Dress: R20, R22, R24, R27, R81, R83, R85 and R89
I used the largest of my Nestabilities circle dies to cut her out, and I inked the egdes with Distress Ink Vintage Photo.

The papers I used are by Authentique, Smitten collection. I really love the colors in that pack! The sentiment is by Whimsy and all flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts. To finish my card I used some lace, ribbon and selfadhesive pearls from my stash.
That was it for today, I hope you like it.

Digi Haven DT - Baby, it's cold outside!

Hi all!

Welcome to the first Digi Haven Challenge of 2014! Where I live, the weather is really soft, almost like spring, but I understand the US is freezing! That is why this fortnight's theme is perfect!
Our theme is BABY, IT'S COLD OUTSIDE!
We also have a fabulous sponsor for this challenge, Bugaboo! Bugaboo is offering 7 images of the winner's choice, isn't that generous! Just click on the banner below to go to their shop!

Bugaboo also generously provided some images to the DT to wirk with, and this is what I created.
I made a big rectangle card, measuring 4.5 x 6 inches. The papers I used are by PaperMania, and were in my stash for ages. They are 12x12 and I rarely use those. I really like them, so I have to use them more often! Let me show you a close-up of the colored image.
Like I said, the image is by Bugaboo and is called Marshamellow Snowmen. You can buy the image here.
The image is colored with my Copic Markers and I used the following markers.
E33, E35, E37, B000, B01, RV21, RV23 and BG0000
I added some Frosty Lace Stickles to the snow and I added some Glossy Accents on the highlite of the snowglobe.
The sentiment I used is by AmyR, and I think it fits our theme perfectly! I used Versafine Onyx Black ink to stamp it. The edges of the papers I used are inked with Distress Ink Vintage Photo.
I used some pink ribbon from my stash and tied it in a bow. I added a snowflake charm to finish it, and I also used some selfadhesive pearls from my stash.

That was it for today, I hope you like it. Now pop over to Digi Haven and join us!

Hugs, Sandra
