More than one card!

Well hello everyone!

For today I am going to spoil you all a bit, because I have not one, but TWO cards!
Shocking, isn't it?
I haven't had much time to craft lately, I am working a lot and there is still a lot to arrange for my wedding. It is in less then 4 weeks, so I am really excited!
Bu in the few spare time I have, I did manage to create two cards, so I am going to upload them both in this post!
Here is the first

It is a card with more than one fold. Of course I used a Magnolia Image

I colored her with my copics, but I forgot to write the numbers down... Stupid me!!

The sentiment is by Penny Black, inked uo with Memento Tuxedo black.
The DP I used is by Basic Grey, Little black dress.

So on to the next one!

This one is a stair step card, and I used 5 different Magnolia stamps, can you find them all?
This cutie is also colored with my Copics, here are the numbers:
Skin: E0000, E00, E11 and R20 for blush
Hair: E29, E37 and E35
Clothes: Y15, Y17 and Y38 for the yellow tones, BG10 and BG15 for the blues.
Swing: E33, E35 E37, W1, W3
Leaves: YG63 and YG67

The sentiment is by Nicole Verkooijen, stamped on Kraftpaper.
The DP is by My Minds Eye, Lost and found 2, Sunshine.
All papers are inked with Distress ink Walnut Stain.
I also used 2 of my Martha Stewart punches, a leaf punch and a border punch.

These cards are entering the following challenges:
Simply Magnolia - More than one Magnolia Stamp
Aud Sentiment Challenge - Anything goes, DT

I hope you all enjoyed it!

Love, Sandra

Saturated Canary

Hello everybody!

Today I have a new card to share with you. I used a digistamp by Saturated Canary. If u are a member of "Kaarten maken met Tiets" at, you can have it for free, which I love!
You can also by the digi here at Krista's Etsy shop
Anywhoo, this is the result

I printed the digi pretty big, so there was not much room for embellishments. My card is a 13,5cm square card.
I used my copics to color her

These are the copics I used:
Skin: E0000, E00, E21, E11
Hair: E29, E37, E08, E35 and E11
Clothes: Y21, Y15, Y17 and Y38
              BG0000, BG10 and BG15
              E31, E33 and E35
              W1, W3 and W5
Grass: YG63, YG67 and G28.

I cut out a grass borderwith a creatable I borrowed from a friend. I cut it out of white paper and colored it with the same greens as the image to make it match.
I also used a sentiment by Nicole Verkooijen.
The DP I used is by My Minds Eye, Lost and Found 2, Sunshine.

That's it for today, I hope you all enjoyed it!
See you soon!

Hugs, Sandra

I just want to say...

Hey everybody!

I went shopping the day before yesterdag, and I bought several different paperpads and some new copic markers! And of course I had to play with it! I made this card sunday evening, and I really liked it.

As you all can see, I didn't use a Magnolia image this time! Shocking, isn't it huh!!
I used a digi by Krista, Satured Canary! While I was coloring I noticed how hard it was to color her hair, but in the end I'm quite happy with it. I have to practice a lot more, haha!!

These are the Copic markers I used,
Skin: E0000, E00, E11, E21 and R20 for blush
Hair: E29, E08 and E11
Dress: R83, R85, R27, R29, Y06, Y08, R00 and R02
Dove: W01, W03

I used one of my new paperpads, Basic Grey - Kissing Booth. Such bright colors, totally my style!
I also did the inside of the card.

I used some left-overs from the papers I used on the cardfront.
The sentiments I used are from a set bij Nicole Verkooijen.

Hope you al liked it, see you next time!
Hugs, Sandra

Wrinkled dress?!?

Hi everybody!

I haven't got a lot of spare time, but every spare time I have, I craft!
So you know, I have lots of cards to share!
As you all may know, my cards are always made especially for my friends. That means I don't create "just" a card, it's always for someone.
Like this one, it's for a birthday for one of my friends.

It is one of the latest Magnoliastamps and I really like her dress!
For the first time I tried to make the wrinkles in her dress. Close by, I didn't like the way it turned out, but from a distance I'm quite happy with it!

I had to color her in with my Copic markers, and I used these:
Skin - E0000, E00, E11, E02 and R20 for blush
Hair - E35, E37 and E29
Dress - R35, R37 and R58
Crown and socks - Y21, Y28 and Y38
Shoes - W01 and W03

The card I made is a so called slider card, the inside can slide out.
On the part that slides out, I added a circle to write your message on. I used a Nestabilities Circle die to cut it out.

I used a Basic Grey collection, Oxford.

I hope you all like it!
See you next time!

Hugs, Sandra
