Another Owl

cuttingedge

While I was working with the cute owls I decided to do another die-cut card with them. I'm adding this one to the Cutting edge blog hop too.

I used the octagon dies for the background, the blue one is with the beautiful metal craft sheets that I won a couple of weeks ago at Add a Little Dazzle. I love the metal sheets and they're perfect for diecutting. I colored the background with distress ink and added a couple of sequins to them. I gave the lace border the same color as the pink I used in the background and added the happy mail sentiment.

Cutting edge / Case study

cuttingedge 4thanniversary zps1a6e7047

This time I'm combining the Cutting edge blog hop and the Case study blog hop in one card. Both blog hops provided a lot of inspiration for me! I don't have a lot of dies but I think I'm falling in love with them ;). Time for some more dies I think haha. Well, let's take a look at my card first, before I'm dreaming about all the dies I would love to get.

And a little bit of my work in progress.

All those buttons didn't look very impressive at first, but I like how they look behind the die-cut 'window'.

Supplies:

  • pre-diecut image from Hearty Crafts for the owl.
  • Small Octagons nestabilities from Spellbinders.
  • Bazzil Candy Necklace cardstock as a base for the card.
  • A lot of purple buttons from an outlet store.
  • Some pink marbled paper from Basic Grey.
  • The blue diecut edge around the window is made with a craft metal sheet (purple peacock) from Add a little dazzle.

I've got my inspiration for this card from Julia at Belle Papier. She made a wonderful button card (and a tutorial).

More background stamping

My card made it in the top 3 from the Case Study challenge!! So excited to hear/see that :).

Today I've made another card that's quite similar to that one, only I didn't use watercolors for this one but distress markers. The background has a lot more color like this so I added a neutral butterfly and sentiment to it. To give the background a little bit more 'bling' I added some rhinestones. The sentiment says 'I'm thinking of you' in Dutch.

Roald Dahl cards, part 2

I think I'm going to make a serie about this theme haha. I just love the images and the bright colors, so I couldn't resist to make more cards. I won't show them all at once, but let's start with another three of them ;). I've used three different stories for these cards: The BFG, Charlie and the Chocolate factory and Fantastic Mr. Fox.

On this card from The BFG the little envelope became my base. It's a big part from the card so I kind of 'build' around it. I've added a little postage stamp from The BFG on the bottom of the envelop, maybe not the right place for a stamp but I thought it just had to be on this envelope.

The paper with little leaves that I used for the background was a little piece that was left from another project. I thought it fitted perfectly with those images from Charlie. (Here we have the oompa loompa's! ;))

The last card from today is from the book Fantastich Mr. Fox. For this card I've used the book as a base. The strip on top has some images from Fantastic Mr. Fox and The Enormous Crocodile.
