WMS sketch challenge # 62

It is a long long time ago that I took part in the WMS Sketch Challenge. But today I'd like to participate again with this card. I don't use my embossing folders often, but for this card it worked out very well.

Thank you for visiting and hope to see you here again!

With fantasy

I didn't have a very good idea what to make, so just used my fantasy and some stuff on my desk. And this is the result! I'm happy with it!

The ribbon was aqua/white, but the white was too bright. So I used some distress ink to make it more compatible with the card. And these flowers bringing me some summer feelings in these dark days of August... Our living room has back its furniture after the renovation! To celebrate it I put some flowers on our dinner table. I'm not very creative with flowers and can't make a nice bouquet. This is a very good alternative for me!

Thanks for coming by!

Trees and hills

Last cards for this week! This weekend the renovation of our livingroom will be finally finished, so a lot of work to do and no time for crafty things.

These cards were made after some inspiration I saw somewhere on the web and I really don't know where anymore. But she used the dotted circle stamp of the Teeny Trees stamp set as hills and I really liked that.
With some help of PTI stamps I'm very satisfied with the results! The bigger tree on the second card is stamped three times with green, so two different greens with one ink!

See you soon!

Supplies for both cards:
Stamps: WMS Teeny Trees, Off Beat; PTI Up, up and away, polka dot 1
Ink: Memento Tuxedo black, pear tart, lady bug, bamboo leaves; brown ink unknown. Ranger distress ink old paper
Other: corner punch, sewingmachine, embossing powder + heatgun.

A passion for PTI - Challenge

On the blog of A passion for Papertrey you can find a challenge. No special guidelines this time, just using PTI stamps and your own inspiration. Well, this is the result! Well, actually the results, as I made two cards with the same idea.

Of course, I had to use my very favorite stamp set at this moment: botanical silhouettes. And no, I'm not a frequent buyer of PTI stamps, but was a lucky person to get this set on Ebay.

Thank you for coming by!

Stamps: PTI Polka dot 1, Botanical Silhouettes, Up, up and away
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, bamboo leaves, ladybug, paris dusk; Distress ink old paper
paper: Bazill basics kraft; white paper (unknown)
Others: thread, strass, round corner punch, sewing machine

Back home and the first cards!

Home sweet home! We spent 2,5 weeks in Brazil, visiting my sister who has been working there for 1,5 years now. It was a wonderful meeting with 'her' boys in Casa Lar whom she is taking care of. And the country is so beautiful!
The jetlag has been almost over and the hunger for creative activities stilled in my craft room after making some cards! Today the first one. It is really CAS. Normally I don't use just white paper, but for this card it was necessary in my opinion.

During my bloghop (I've seen a lot of beautiful cards!) I've found this challenge . Okay, I made this card before seeing the example, but well, with a bit fantasy I can use this card, don't you think? The example gives a row of three, well I didn't put them in a row, but freestyle

Hopefully I won't be disqualified...

Have a nice day!! 

Paper: Jillibean blossom soup, Bazill basics
