Love - DCL#219

I made a card with two little critters from the Lawn Fawn's Into the Wood set. I think they are in love! I stamped a background with the word 'love' made with Lawn Fawn's Milo's ABC in grey and once in red. I added a little glimmer at the wood veneer heart, made a 'circle' with some thread and finished it with a nice yellow stripe motif.
The new challenge at Dutch Card Lovers is all about text. As I don't possess quote stamps, I created a background with text. 

Thanks for hopping by!

Crazy for Cas #54 - wobble card

I admit I wasn't very happy with the new challenge at Crazy for Cas - make a wobble card. I'm not really fond of it because I don't have big circle dies or a circle cutter and I find it hard to make it CAS. However, it is a challenge, so I took it and I came up with a mini version! I used my biggest nestability-circles and made the 'wobble' by folding it. In the middle of the white circle I stamped 'love' with Lawn Fawn's Milo - ABC. From there I stamped with a very little heart stamp (also Lawn Fawn) in red and pinks.
In my opinion quite a CAS wobble card!

Enjoy your Saturday!

SU Flowerpot

When I received the SU catalogue from Marit , last June, one product caught my attention immediately: the paperline 'Flowerpot'. Such bright colours, lovely little flowers and stripes and dots.
Today, I show you some cards I've made with these papers!

The first one is a card for a newborn. I used Avery Elle's Storybook and Balloons stamps. The grassy border is from Lawn Fawn as well as the ABC.

A congrats cards, made with Lawn Fawn stamps. I used 'wink of stella' for some glitter effect on the hippo.

For the third one I used a stamp from PTI and a star die from Lawn Fawn.

And last but not least, quite CAS and also some wink of stella glitter for the party effect:

Thanks for coming by!

Oh Darling!

With some goodies from the 'Oh Darling!'line by Crate Paper I made two cards. One for a baby girl and a small square card for a birthday girl.

I've been a student again since last week. I have started a Master English. It will be time consuming, but I hope to find some time for card making as well! During an intake which I had with one of the lecturers I got one advice: "Make time for one hobby, otherwise you won't manage. It helps to relax!"
Of course, I will follow that advice!

Enjoy your weekend!

Today's card is made for a wedding anniversary. I gave it a bit of a romantic look by using pinks and reds, hearts and and a lovely 'love' die from Clearly Besotted Stamps. Creating a background with daubers is so easy to do and I love the effect. In my previous post, I sponged the ink on watercolour paper. For this card I used smooth cardstock. Both work fine! The little hearts are stamped with a little stamp from a Lawn Fawn set. The bigger heart is from MFT. Designpaper is from Glitz Design.

Thanks for stopping by!
