Let's fly away!

A boy in our church is severly ill. I wanted to send a card which hopefully makes him smile. I used the same idea as this card I made previously. For the boy is used the airplane from the Fly away set from Papertrey Ink. The papers are from SU. This boy has got a younger brother and I thought it would be nice to send him a card as well. Same idea, but different colours. I didn't add a sentiment, just because I don't know what kind of sentiment would be appropriate. I wrote a message inside and invited the boys to become the pilot of these airplanes. Hopefully they love these cards!

It was really hard to film and get the airplane moving at the same time.  Other times the airplane flew quite smoothly...

For today's card I was inspired by Laurie Willison's card. Loved the way she did it.
So, I lifted her card, although I used another leaf stamp and stamped the leaves in straight lines. The stamp is a small 3 step one from Altenew's mini stamp 'Daisy'. The 'hello' die is from MFT stamps.

10 x 10

Today a 10x10 card. Made with some Studio Calico papers, a stitched rectangle die from Lawn Fawn, a leave die from Simply Graphic and twine. The sentiment (Dutch abbreviation for Congrats) is stamped with the SU Alphabet Roller stamp. A quick and easy card to create!

Woodland wonders

After wo weeks of holiday and a studytrip to England, this week will be quite a normal week. Although today is a day off as well. Hopefully I still remember how to teach :). I couldn't craft a lot either, so today I show a card which I made a few weeks earlier. It is made with Avery Elle's Woodland Wonders. A set which was released last January and it was high on my wishlist. Love the trees and the critters.

one sketch, two cards

I have recently played with some paper pads from crate paper. I didn't use a specific sketch, but I came up with this one just by trying some things. I first created the brown card ( a get well card) and copied that one in a more colourful scheme (birthday).

I have tried some water colouring recently. I heat embossed stamps from the SU What I love set and coloured them with distress inks. This is the result. I used a birthday die from Avery Elle and a wishes stamp from Papertrey Ink. I splashed some ink as the final touch.

Enjoy the weekend!
