A Happy Place

It’s almost the end of the summer vacation; have you done anything nice? My mother-in-law bought a small caravan, so I made something for her to decorate her caravan.

This is a 3D image in a photo frame. It may look very difficult, but if you can make 3D cards, this is the same idea. This takes about two days to make, ultimately about 4 hours of work! Continue reading “A Happy Place”

For my sister

I try to make cards for my family member’s birthday as much as possible, but this does not always happen because I’m often very busy! But this time I had the time to make a card for my sister! I tried to make something more simple because I often make rather difficult cards.

Butterflies make everything beautiful!

Klik hier voor de Nederlandse versie.

I think butterflies are really beautiful and I asked myself, “Why is that?” I think it is because butterflies are so symmetrical and people are generally attracted to things that are symmetrical. But I’m also a very analytical and have a scientific mind set.

The technique for today is “die cut monoprint”. Using this technique, I created two cards witht he butterfly monoprints, but you can also use the prints for a scrapbook or art journal. This easy technique takes about 15-20 minutes and the two cards took over an hour to make. Continue reading “Butterflies make everything beautiful!”

Cute Bunny Easter card

This year, Easter falls on April 21st. So I made an Easter card since it is also my task for Hobby Alternatief for today. But I don’t have anyone to give this card to, but would like to. Would you be interested in receiving this card? Then please look near the end to see how you can apply for a chance to get this card!

I felt this card was easy to make, but perhaps the small details make it a bit difficult too.  How easy or difficult a card is depends more on what you like or don’t like. I’m crazy about small details, that’s why I thought this card was easy to make. But because of the small details, it takes a lot of time to make a card for me, and this card took several hours to make. Continue reading “Cute Bunny Easter card”

A fun shaker birthday!

Hello crafters!  How have you been staying warm? I like to stay warm by curling up in my bed watching a show while crocheting. Or if I have to make a card, I’ll work in my craft area with my handy little space heater. Crafting warms my heart too!

Today I have something fun for you.

This is a fun shaker birthday card!  I personally find shaker cards difficult due to all the little bits and pieces, but if you’re familiar with making shaker cards, then this should be easy for you.  Overall, this card took me about 2 or 3 hours to make, and I had some troubles (you’ll see where later).

You can’t Resist this technique!

Klik hier voor de Nederlandse versie.

Good day! As always, thank you for your lovely comments on my last post.

Before I begin, I would like to share a little joke. When I first got the assignment for this card, I asked aloud, “What’s ‘color resist’?” My husband replies, “Make a black and white card and say that you resisted using colors.”  Well, I guess that’s one way to look at it! But I will stick to using my lovely colors….

feb05_19

So the card for today showcases the color resist technique. Unlike what my husband thinks, color resist is the resist of color going into the paper due to a layer of wax, an embossing/watermark ink, or a layer of melted embossing powder applied to the paper.  My card will showcase the latter: color resist with embossing powder.

This card is rather easy to do and takes about one hour or less to complete. Continue reading “You can’t Resist this technique!”
