Art by Mi Ran - Amica loves Friends

Hi all

Time for me to share another Art by Mi Ran card with you all, and since I am still in Christmas card moods, it will be no surprise this is another Christmas card!

 The papers I used are from Echo Park, Very Merry Christmas collection, and boy I am sad! This is the very last card I made with this paper, because I finished the paper pad! Not even a single scrap left... Guess that is a good excuse to get me some new paperpads though!
All edges are inked with Distress Ink Walnut Stain.


 The image I used is called Amica Loves Friends, and is available here at Whimsy Stamps. I used the following Copic Markers to color her.
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E13.
Blush: E93, E95
Hair: E23, E25, E27
Dress: YG93, YG95, YG97
Reds: R24, R46, R89, R59
White: W00, W0, W2, W5


 The sentiment I used is from a set from Nicole Verkooijen and says Happy Merry Great Christmas.

To finish off my card I used some red ribbon, and tied a small bell to it with some rope. I added some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, and that was it!

That's it for today, I hope you like it!

Hugs, Sandra

The East Wind - Karaoke

Do you like to sing? I do, but I can't... If I start singing, everyones ear drums will explode, so I stick to singing alone! But if you have friends who love to sing, I may have found the perfect image for a card for that friend! The image has just released over at The East Wind!

 Isn't this a perfect image!
I used some papers from My Minds Eye, a really old collection, but I found some left-overs while cleaning my craft room. All edges are inked with Distress Ink Vintage Photo.

CreaMiep - Geniet van de kleine dingen

Hoi allemaal!

Vandaag is het mijn beurt om jullie wat te laten zien op het CreaMiep blog. Deze keer een wat andere kaart dan jullie van mij gewend zijn, er zit namelijk helemaal geen gekleurd afdrukje op! En ook helemaal geen bloemetjes, gek he? Af en toe vind ik het leuk om gewoon eens wat anders te doen dan anders!

 Ik heb op internet een patroon van een schortje gevonden en deze nagetekend op een dubbele kaart van kraft papier. Daarna heb ik het zelfde schortje overgetrokken op designpapier uit mijn eigen voorraad en wat kleiner uitgeknipt. Erg handig, zo heb ik een mooi maatje designpapier! Alle randjes van mijn papier heb ik beïnkt met Distress Ink Vintage Photo.


 In het vakje van het schortje heb ik wat keukengereedschap gedaan. Dit is gemaakt met een stans van Memorybox, Let's Bake Something heet deze mallenset. Zijn ze niet leuk?! Ik ben er helemaal verliefd op!


Voorop het vakje van het schortje heb ik een tekst gestempeld met Memento Tuxedo Black inkt. Deze tekst komt uit de set van CreaMiep.


Dit was het weer voor vandaag, ik hoop dat ik jullie heb kunnen inspireren. Het is een mooi, simpel kaartje geworden, wat snel gemaakt kan worden. Zie ik jullie variant hierop terug op onze Facebook pagina?

Liefs, Sandra

Our theme for this month is mustashes, perfect for the Movember month.

Here's what I created!

 I used a pocket watch die from Noor!Design, and I inked the embossed parts with the same Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I used some rope from my stash to adhere it to my card. The bubble die is from Memory Box.


The sentiment says It's been a long time... It is from a set of time themed stamps from Noor!Design.
