Merry Christmas with glittery backing- glitter achtergrond

Today I'm showing you a card I made Marianne Design/Karin Joan products.

I started by diecutting 3 circles from a panel and Stamped the sentiment from KJ1719 with Versafine Onyx black ink.

Then I stamped the leaves from KJ1715 with 3 colors of Memento inks and diecut them.

I glued a strip of silver glitter paper on the cardbase, so it lines the windows.
Mounted the panel with foamtape and adhered it to the cardbase.
Mounted the twigs with small bits of foamtape and tucked them in and under the window openings.

Materials used/ Gebruikte materialen:
Marianne Design/Karin Joan KJ1715
Marianne Design/Karin Joan KJ1719
Memento inks: Bamboo leaves, Cottage ivy and Nothern pine.

Voor mijn kaart van vandaag ben ik begonnen met het stansen van drie cirkels in een kaart paneel.
Daarna heb ik de groet van KJ1719 met Versafine onyx black ink.
Ik heb een strip van zilver glitter karton gesneden en op de kaart basis geplakt, zodat de cirkels een mooie achtergrond hebben.

Ik heb de takjes van KJ1715 met Memento ink gestempeld en daarna uitgestanst.
Ik heb kleine stukjes foam achter de takjes en de voorkant geplakt en op de basis geplakt  en dan de takjes in de openingen geplaatst.

A tribute to Melissa Lane

Sad news had arrived at AAA headquarters, the untimely passing of our team member Melissa Lane.
 We deceded to commemorate her with Butterfly cards, her favourite colour was red.
For my card I used the Concord and 9th Butterfly beauty with Versafine Clair black ink (Nocturn) and red magic Versamagic ink and a layer of Love letter Memento ink.
The sentiment is from the same set and  I've added 3 red pearls.

My heart goes out to her family in this sad times, I am thinking of you.

See our AAA blog for all the DT tributes.

AAA Cards Challenge #126: moonlight

This fortnight the AAA Cards Challenge is: moonlight.
Our sponsor is Uniko and the prize is the choice of an in stock stamp set.

I was given this gorgeous die of an owl on a branch and I thought the circle around it looked like a full moon, that's why I inkblended a yellow Orange moon.I wanted some kind of candy corn colors because of the time of year.
I used Versamagic mini inks (thatched straw,mango madness and persimmon) on the cardbase.
Diecut the owl from black card and mounted it with foam tape.
As I wanted as much empty space (not white this time) as possible, I didn't add a sentiment. I do not send out cards with Halloween and so I will decide on the sentiment when I use this card, maybe my friend who's a crazy owl lady.
For more information, more examples form our Design Team, or to play along, see this.

Craftin Desert Divas creative challenge: florals and fairytales

For my card this week I printed the fairy from Magical day and the sentiment in Photoshop.
I printed it on marker friendly paper and colored the fairy with both Spectrum and Illustrator markers.
I used the grass border from Outdoor landscape 2 dies to  cut off the bottom of my panel.
I also diecut three of the birches in the same dieset for my forest feel.

For the background I used alcohol inks and rubbing alcohol on Yupo paper and let it dry.
Then I used Scortape to adhere the  alcohol panel to the cardbase and Nuvo Deluxe glue to adhere the trees to the panel.
Mounted the grassy border with foamtape and placed it on top.
I also mounted the fairy with foamtape and stuck her on  an angle on the card, as if she's fluttering through this forest. Added some shine with the Lollipop sequins, I stuck those down with gluedots

Making a stencil with a die- maak een eigen stencil met een stans

Today I'm showing you a card that has a stencilled background I made from scratch.
To do so I diecut the little Christmas tree from KJ1716 14times from grid paper in an attempt to get it as straight as possible.
I then Applied Distress Oxides through it and Stamped the present lines from KJ1716 also and the sentiment from KJ1717 with Versafine Onyx black ink. the stamps wasn't as wide as my cardbase ,so I extended the lines with a marker.

I diecut the bow from Col 1441 from black card backed with the Craft tape  to make it a sticker and adhered it to the card.

Then I applied the same craft take on both sides of craftfoam and diecut the deer from KJ Col 1442 from it as well as silver glitter
paper and adhered them together and then on top of the bow.

Materials used/gebruikte materialen:

Marianne design/Karin Joan KJ1716
Marianne design/Karin Joan KJ1717
Marianne design/Karin Joan col 1442
Marianne design/Karin Joan col 1441
Versafine onyx black ink
Marianne Design craft tape LR0014
Distress Oxides: cracked pistachio, iced spruce and mowed lawn.

Voor mij kaart van vandaag heb ik een stencil gemaakt door de kleine kerstboom 14x uit te stansen. Ik heb geruit papier gebruikt in een poging het so strak mogelijk te doen.
Daarna heb ik Distress oxide ink aangebracht door de stencil.
Toen heb ik de strik "draden" van KJ1716 en de groet uit
KJ1716 gestempeld met Versafine onyx black ink.
De "draden" waren niet zo breed als mijn kaart, dus heb ik de lijnen doorgetrokken met een fineliner.
Ik heb de strik  van Col1441 uit zwart karton gestanst met achterop de Marianne Design craft tape.

Voor het hert heb ik ook craft tape gebruikt aan beide kanten van foam en daarmee het hert op de kaart geplakt en het glitter hert erop.

Yeti Artist Trading coins

The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is: anything but a card, showcasing My Favorite Things products.

For my anything I chose Artist Trading Coins, they seem a hot trend and this is my first try.

I'm not entirely sure how big ATC usually are, but I diecut about 2.5"inch circles from 300grams Schut Cold pressed watercolorpaper for my coins.

I chose the Beast Friends from MFT and stamped them with MFT hybrid ink onto Crafter's Companion Neenah Paper and had the Scan N Cut do it's thing.
Stamped the little trees from the same set on Inkadinkado masking paper and cut them out.

Masked off the bottom of my coins with Post its so to make it look like snow. I Also placed the trees and inkblended Distress inks around the masks to make a sort of Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights).

I've used Distress inks: Black soot, Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon, Wilted Violet, Cracked Pistachio and Squeezed Lemonade.

I've splattered most skies with water.
Some I spritzed with Shimmer Spritz, both the Sparkle and the Frost one, I also used the Simon Says Stamp falling snow stencil and Deco Art modelling paste. Seems more transparent than I thought, but the effect is there.

Colored my Yetis with Alcohol markers and mounted them with foam.
then stamped the little paw prints in the snow with third or fourth generation stamping, but they're still dark. This was Versafine Clair Nocturn ink.
