Slinky Tart - Smoking Hot!

Hi all!

I am here to share a new Slinky Tart project with you all! This weeks post is the last one before summer break, since we all deserve one.
When I picked my image, I wasn't quite sure what make with her, but I picked her, because I just love her! And while I was coloring I found a stamp set with the sentiment that was perfect for her, and after coloring it hit me. Why not use it in combination with candles? Why not make a candle box? Duh! So here it is!

 I designed the box myself, nothing fancy. It looks like a little pizza box. I measured the width of 3 candles, and the height of the candles, and make a little box with those measurements. The box is 12,5cm square, and 1,5 cm in  height.


 The patterned paper I used is from Authentique, Careful collection. I inked the edges with Distress Ink Walnut Stain 
 The image I used is called Smoking Hot! and she is colored with my Copic Markers. I used the following markers.
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E13
Hair: E02, E08, E09, E18
Eyes: YG93, YG95
Red: R35, R46, R59
White: C00, C0, C2, C5

The sentiment is from a set from Noor Design, and is in Dutch. It says Fire caution! 50 candles this year! Rather fitting fot this image, huh? 

This was it for today, I hope you all liked it!

Hugs, Sandra

CreaMiep Design Team dag

Hoi allemaal!

Zoals jullie weten, hebben we 11 juli jl onze eerste CreaMiep DT dag gehouden. We hebben toen met de aanwezige leden een groepsfoto gemaakt en die allemaal gescrapt. Ik wilde jullie graag mijn uitwerking laten zien, met wat meer uitleg.


 Als basis heb ik een vel wit cardstock gebruikt. 
Daarboven op heb ik een vel designpapier gelegd. 
Ik heb een grote cirkel uit een ander vel design papier gemaakt. Je kan dit uit de hand knippen, er een mal voor gebruiken, of een bord omtrekken. De cirkel heb ik een beetje uit het midden, rechtsonder gelegd. 
Tot slot heb ik nog een strook designpapier rechts gelegd, en onder nog een strook designpapier eroverheen. Onder de onderste strook desgin papier heb ik nog een stuk kant geplakt.

Al het design papier dat ik heb gebruikt is van Maja Design, Coffee in the Arbour collectie.



 Uit kraft papier heb ik een paar labels gesneden, en deze heb ik achter mijn foto gestoken. Ik heb ze versierd met verschillende lintjes, die ik met een stukje touw heb vastgestrikt.



Om mijn lay-out af te werken, heb ik verschillende papieren bloemen gebruikt, namelijk Cherry Blossom, Sweetheart flowers, en roosjes 10 millimeter.

Ik heb ook alle randjes van mijn papier en designpapier geïnkt met Distress Ink Walnut Stain, om alles een mooi afgewerkt effect te geven.

Ik hoop dat jullie het leuk vonden om te zien hoe ik deze lay-out heb gemaakt.

Liefs, Sandra

Art by Mi Ran - Christmas

Hi all!

Today is my turn to host the Art by Mi Ran blog, and I decided to go crazy! I made a Christmas card (not a big deal), but with an image that is not specific for Christmas!
I colored Shea her dress red, and the wreath in green. At that moment hubby walked in to my craft room and says, "hey, those colors are for Christmas, but it is not a Christmas image". That challenged me to make a Christmas card with her, and here it is!

 The papers I used are from Echo Park. All the edges are inked with Distress Ink Walnut Stain. I made a circle in the center of the card to let Shea 'hang', because I liked the look of it.


 I used my Cpoic Markers to color Shea, and I used the following markers.
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E13
Hair: E51, E53, E55
Eyes: E55, E57, E59
Dress and flowers: R35, R46, R59, Y32, Y35
Wreath: G40, G43, G46


 I used some red twine from my stash to make the wreath hang on my card.


 The flowers I used are from Wild Orchid Crafts


The star I used is stamped with a Craft Emotions stamp, with Prima Marketing Chalk ink.

This was it for today, i hope you like it!

Slinky Tart - Merry Christmas

Hi all!

Today I would like to share a project I made for Slinky Tart! This week was team B's turn to post, and since I am now managing team A and B, I also made a card. I am in need of Christmas cards, I decided to use my favorite Christmas image ever, and luckily, she is in the Slinky Tart shop!!


To create the shape of my card, I used a template from Dutch Doobadoo. The papers I used are from Little Yellow Bicycle, and I think these papers are ancient, lol. I have them in my stash for over 6 years now I think! I inked all edges with Distress Ink Walnut Stain.



Like I said earlier, I used my all time favorite Christmas image. This one is called Snowman CPR, and can be found here. I used my Copic Markers to color her up, and I used the following markers.
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E13
Hair: C5, C7, 100
Eyes: E55, E57
Lips: R22
Coat: G40, G43, G46
Snowman: C00, C1
Nose: YR15, YR16
Hat and Scarf: R35, R46, R59
I used some Crystal Stickles on the furry edges of the coat and hat.



 I used some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, and some pine cones from my stash as an embellishment.



The sentiment I used is made with a die from Noor Design, and I just can't stop using this one!

This was it for today, please pop over to the Slinky Tart blog to see what the other girls made!

Hugs, Sandra

Golden Oldie project - 4 generations mini album

Hi all!

About 2 months ago, one of the designers from Kimya started a Golden Oldie challenge. She shared a tutorial of one of her mini albums, and challenged us to follow her tutorial and post our projects before the deadline. I ordered a little kit to get started, but I already knew my project couldn't join the challenge. The challenge ended about 3 weeks ago, but I made this album for my grandmother, who celebrated her 77th birthday last sunday. So there was no way I could have showed this earlier, because she or someone else in the family could have known what I was making her.
Anyway, now that my grandmother received her gift, I think it is time I show my project here as well!

 The album is made from paperbags, binded together with some rope, and has cardstock to reinforce the binding.


 The flowers on the binding are from Wild Orchid Crafts ans Joy Crafts.


The papers I used are all from the Collage Art stack from DCWV. All edges are inked with Distress Ink Walnut Stain.

The tiny tags I used are also from Kimya, but they were not in the kit. You can find them here.
I used some lace from my own stash, and added some twine from Kimya as well.

 The heart die I used is from Memory box.


 The heart tag was part of the lovely kit I bought.


 The mesh behind the picture was also part of the kit.


 The paperbags all have a punched edge, I used my Fiskars Threading Water border punch for them.


 And this is the back of my album. The pearls I used in the album are from a Dutch store called Action.


Last but not least the tags that are inside the paper bags. Since my album is a 4 generations album, I made a tag for every generation.

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

Hugs, Sandra

 Doesn't this one scream summer? I just love the colors! The papers I used are by Basic Grey, Soleil collection, and just perfect for bright colored cards! I inked all the edges with Distress Ink Vintage photo, which gives it a nice finished look.

This was it for today, I hope you all like it. Have a great day!

Hugs, Sandra
