Yellow and grey
I got a little bit of time left to make another card for the 'in the middle' challenge at Simon Says Stamp. This time I put the sentiment card in the middle of the card (a little card on a larger card ;)). I love these beautiful sentiments that were in this Simon Says Stamp card kit. And I really like the color combination. A good excuse to use yellow ;). And we got a little bit more sunshine this weeks so it feels good to get a little bit more 'sunshine yellow' in my card. Including the little sparkling detail from the sequins.
I made another card with the same card kit, for the wednesday challenge (creating your own background) this time. I stamped a couple of flowers in the background with grey ink to create a matching background for the card and I used another sentiment card. Love the lettering on this one :).
I also made a new card set for my Etsy shop with these two cards (And the other one I made last week). I love how the sentiments are all about 'Beauty' and it with the card kit you can make a couple of nice matching card for a set. I tried a new 'styling' for my photo's and I think it works pretty well to display a card set this way :). It's available in my Etsy store!
In the middle
This weeks monday challenge at Simon Says Stamp is 'in the middle' and groups of three just work out great for 'in the middle' projects haha. I used a stamp set from Hero Arts with these really cute animals. I drawed the wooden block under the owl myself to make the 'middle' owl stand out a little bit more. I colored them with distress markers and water. I used some patterned paper from Lawn Fawn for the background and a little stroke of glitter paper from Joy Crafts (if you're ever looking for really smooth glitter paper that doesn't rub off, this one is perfect!!). I added a couple of buttons and sequins to add a little bit more interest to the card. And I finished my images with a little bit of wink of stella, you can see it best in the second picture.
Just a cute card to share today :). This sweet little racoon (or pup?) is a stamp from Hero Arts that I colored with distress markers. I diecut the circle with a die from My Favorite Things and added a couple of sequins (doodlebug this time) and a couple of wooden buttons.
You've been on my mind
Another card I've made with the Simon Says Stamp March card kit today :). I love the yellow accents in this kit and this time I combined it with a little touch of gold. The stamp and papers are from the kit and I added a couple of flowers from Prima and some golden sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
I made this card for the wednesday challenge from Simon Says Stamp, it's about april showers / spring flowers. Obviously, I chose the flower part for this card ;).
Illustrating for scrapbooks
I'm getting back on track slowly, to many ideas and not enough time ;). Next week I'm starting a new course and I'm still busy blogging about my last course with Lilla Rogers. But hey, never a dull moment this way. Bootcamp started again too so I can fill every moment of spare time with illustrating stuff haha.
I want to show you all my 'scrapbook project' from the MATS course. It was all about hot air balloons and mail, in a vintage theme. I searched for a couple of different air balloons, and I won't care if they would be able to fly or not haha. And while we're busy with flying and combining a mail theme, I couldn't resist adding a couple of doves. I added some handletters sentiment too, it was nice to try a different type of lettering than I'm used to. And I liked it so I think you'll be seeing more of these 'vintage blackletters'. (well, you've already seen some of it on my map about Zaltbommel).
