The current challenge at the City Crafter's blog is 'You'. This morning before the warmth overtook my craftroom I made a card with Mama Elephant's Chance of Rain. Nope, I'm not hoping for a shower of rain during these summerdays in the Netherlands, but showers of joy are always welcome. Perfect sentiment for this challenge as the 'you' is in capital letters to put emphasise on it!

Special delivery in London

More baby cards have been made in my craftroom. One of my colleagues of our English department in school became father. Last year I won a gift certicficate of MFT stamps and I picked the London Sklyline die among other things. So far, I didn't create anything with it as the ideas I had in mind didn't work out the way I thought it would be nice. However, this morning, the idea of today's card turned out great! A perfect way of matching this die with Avery Elle's special delivery! I used some dark blue cardstock for the skyline, although it seems to be black in the photo.

Enjoy your day!

Hey baby!

I love square cards and especially the 10x10 cm ones. I am always a bit nervous when sending them in the post as the cards are so tiny, but so far, all cards have reached their destination. Hopefully it is the same with this card. I coloured the rabbit of Avery Elle's Woodland Wonders and used some papers from Crate Paper's Little One. I added some foam tape on the front paper in order to get some dimension into the card. The sentiment is from Avery Elle's Special Delivery. The little banners are made with a punch from SU.

baby elephant

Long time no see! We have been home for more than a week after our holiday, but still not really in a cardmaking mood... However, I had to make a baby card and I did it in a CAS style! I used the Jungle Friends set from MFTstamps in combination with the matching paper pad. The sentiment is from PTI and it is stamped onto vellum which was wrapped around the card over a piece of striped patterned paper. I was inspired by latest Make-it-Monday video: sentiment strip grounding.

I'd like to participate in the current Addicted to Stamps challenge: anything goes as well!

I've got one week left before school starts again. Hopefully I'll find some inspiration as I only have a few cards in stock...
Hopefully you all have had a wonderful summer so far! Enjoy it!
