Art by Mi Ran - Just because

Hi all!

Today is my turn to host the Art by Mi Ran blog, so I am posting all the details about my card over here!

 The papers I used for my card are from an old My Minds Eye paper pad that I totally forgot about. I usually pick my papers first, and then color, so I was digging through my pile of paper pads and I found this one. All edges are inked with Distress Ink Vintage Photo.


 The image I used is called Little Garden Sally, and I used my Copic Markers to color her again.
I used the following markers.
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E13
Blush: E93, E95
Hair, fence: E23, E25, E27
Yellows: Y32, Y35, Y38
Pinks: R81, R83, R85, R89
White: W00, W0, W2, W5
Grey: C1, C3, C5
Bushes: G40, G43, G46
Grass: YG60, YG63, YG67, E23, E25
The clouds are spunged with Distress Ink Tumbled Glass.


 The sentiment is from Noor! Design and says: A card from me, just because.



I made a rosette with my Silhouette, and added several differend Wild Orchid Crafts flowers around it.

This was it, I hope you like it!

Jaylinn

Hi all!

Today is the first birthday of Jaylinn, the daughter from my husbands coworker. We were invited to her birthday party, but unfortunately we couldn't make it, so I created her a birthday card instead.
I accidentally found out Jaylinns mom asked who could make a Minnie Mouse cake for her, so I knew I had to make a Minnie Mouse card.

I used my Silhouette to cut out Minnie Mouse's head, and the letters. The bow is made with my We Are Memory Keepers Envelope punch board.
The polka dot paper is from Bo Bunny, and was in my stash for ages.
On the white panel behind Minnies head I used my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.

This was it for today, I hope you like it!
Happy Birthday Jaylinn!

Hugs, Sandra

Art by Mi Ran - January Progressive Challenge

Hi all!

Yesterday evening a new progressive challenge started over at the Art by Mi Ran Facebook group! Mi Ran drew a fabulous new image for everyone to play with, and today, I am sharing my DT sample!

 The papers I used are actually from a very old paper pad from My Minds Eye, I used to collect them when I just started card making. I finally decided to just use them, and not to gather dust on a shelf, and the bright colors are just wonderful! All edges are inked with Distress Ink Walnut Stain.


 The image we all used is Birthday Betty, and please make sure to read the challenge at our FB group how to get the image! I used my Copic Markers again to color her up, and I used the following colors.
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E13
Blush: E93, E95
Hair and Eyes: E71, E74, E77, E79
Clothes: BG53, BG57, BG49
Gifts and confetti: R81, R83, R85, Y32, Y35, Y38


 The sentiment I used is from Whimsy Stamps, and all the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.


The Happy Birthday is made with a die from Noor! Design and is just perfect for this image.

This was it for today, I hope you like her! Please pop over the the Art by Mi Ran Facebook Group and join us!

Hi all!

We just started a brand spanking new challenge over at The East Wind, and boy, this theme is my absolute fave! And no, it is not Anything goes haha, our theme for this challenge is Black, White and one other color!

 The papers I used are from Scrapberry, Elegy collection. These papers are just gorgeous, and perfect for this challenge theme. I inked all the edges with Distress Black Soot ink.


 The image I used is called Aurora "Spring Lady", and was the perfect image to color in Black, White and pops of red. I used my Copic Markers to color her, and I used the following.
Black and White: C00, C0, C1, C2, C3, C5, C7 and 100
Reds: R24, R46, R89


 The sentiment I used is from Little Darlings Rubber Stamps, and is stamped with Versafine Onyx black ink directly on to the designer paper. I added a bow from red ribbon from my stash, to make the red even pop out more.


The flowers I used are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

This was it for today, I hope you like it! Please pop over to The East Wind Challenge and join us!

CreaMiep - Met Pensioen

Hoi allemaal!!

Vandaag mag ik jullie weer wat shown op het CreaMiep blog.
Eind december is een lieve collega met pensioen gegaan, en ik heb voor haar een mooie kaart gemaakt. 

 Ik heb ervoor gekozen om de boekenmal van Dutch Doobadoo te gebruiken. Eerst heb ik deze overgetrokken op kraft cardstock, daarna op wit cardstock, en toen op het designpapier van Scrapberry, Summer Joy. Alle randjes zijn aangezet met Distress Ink Vintage Photo.


 De stempel die ik heb gebruikt is van Aurora Wings, en ze is gekleurd met alcoholmarkers die matchen bij het designpapier.


 Ik heb een takje met blaadjes uitgestanst, daaroverheen mijn tekst, en die heb ik afgewerkt met paarse roosjes 15mm, en witte sweetheart flowers.


 In het midden heb ik verschillende lintjes en kantjes op elkaar geplakt, alsof het een bladwijzer is. 



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

Liefs, Sandra

The East Wind Challenge - Flag on the Play

Hi all!

First, I want to wish everyone a happy new year! Wishing you and yours all the best, I hope you had a great time in 2015 and 2-16 will be even better!

And as it is the first of the month, a new challenge has started over at The East Wind. Our theme for this month is Flag on the Play, so we want to see banners, flags, pennants etc!

 The papers I used for my card are from Basic Grey, and I just love them. There are no full sheets left of my paper pad, only scraps! I inked all edges with Distress Ink Walnut Stain.


 The image I used is this month's newsletter freebie, isn't this one adorable? I used my Copic Markers again to color, and I used the following.
Polar bear: E40, E41, E43
Skin: E21, E11, E13
Hair: E13, E15, E18
Reds: R24, R46, R89
Blues: B95, B97, B99
Whites: W00, W1, W3


 And of course no card from my hand without any flowers, so I added several from Wild Orchid Crafts.


The fishtail flags are all cut by hand, from the scraops of my Basic Grey paper pad. I added a strip of rhinestones on top of it.

This was it for today, i hope you like it! Please pop over to The East Wind and join our challenge!

Hugs, Sandra
