A Pirate Ship

Hi everybody on this bit cooler sunny day!

Today I would love to share this pirate card with you. I had this vellum paper, with the pirate prints on, for quite a while and just could not get a proper design for it. So a little boy celebrated his birthday a while ago and suddenly I had some inspiration. I have used my Cuttlebug Pirate Dies Cuts to give a finishing touch after I used the ripture technique on the vellum, to give the card a bit of a worn look, typically of an used map of a Pirate.

Springtime.....Butterfly time

With early spring in the air, all the butterflies are coming out too. So with a bit of inspiration from nature this card was born. A 3 fold wavy card with my favourite 3D technique with the pansies. A small butterfly brad to hold the ribbonbow in place and a peel-off sentiment to finish the card off.

Spread your wings....smell the flavour of spring....and enjoy every moment.

Conquer the Wild

Hi Everybody! Hope you enjoy the day. Summer gave us a taste of what is ahead of us, here in the northern hemisphere. Today I would like to share this card with the girls at Creative Cottage Challenge where they have the challenge: One for the Boys.
Edwin, the zoo keeper, from the Magnolia Rubberstampseries is coloured in with promakers to match the African theme of the card. The paper is from the Safari Chic Stack from Toga. I had the Explorer Livingstone in mind when I made the sentiment, since it is a new decade ahead for my brother.
Have a wild day!

Moonlight Fairy

Wishing on a moonlight fairy......with some embroidery in a metal thread in this new Marianne Star Collection design template. I have used turquois and pink cardstock to emphasise the colours in the 3D picture. Adding just a finishing touch with silver peel-offs. I belief there is something of a little girl in all women......hope you share the feeling......
Wishing you enough time to enjoy the small things in enjoying moonlight and wishing upon stars.

A Bit of Black and White

Hallo Everybody from a very chilly southern France. I was in a bit of black and white mood lately. Today I've played a bit with my peel-offs. Tried something different from a normal square centre. The butterflies are though cuttlebug productions, but I thought it gives a nice finishing touch. So good luck for a bit of sun soon and summer on it's way.

Sunshine smile to all!

A Cooking Birthday

I've been in and out of town lately, so I did not do a lot of crafting these days. But I would like to share this card with you. I've bought this stamp a few years ago in South Africa and thought it so typically african. In this card I did not colour it in but used perfect pearl powders, that gives you just a bit of glaze. Beads is also part of the african culture, but I've only used gold beads to give some colour in the black and white card. So I wish my friend a cooking birthday!

Have a great day!
