The bright side of life

A few days ago I did some shopping at a store new to me and found this funny bird. From the heart stamps has lovely and crazy stamps, perfect for crafting! I loved the little akwardness and the funny sentiments that go with it, so today I gave it a go. The design paper is from my favorite brand Echo Park.

I totally love this image by Tiddly Inks, especially because of those cute penguins. I colored it with my copics and made card by combining different Echo Park papers from the set Bundled Up. With this card I'd like to join the Tiddly Inks challenge 171!

Echo Park Christmas

Today I made a second set of christmas cards. I really enjoy making these sets of cards. For this set I used Echo Park's last year's christmas design papers, they are great!

Christmas card set

Made my first set of Christmas cards. I wanted to have an easy layout, in order to make more than one card. It would be nice to send all of my friends and family a card and not just a few, wouldn't it? So here's my first set!

Curly crafting

After starting again on my coloring classes (I highly recommend these Kit & Clowder technique classes, they are awesome and really high quality!) I couldn't resist joining the monthly facebook technique class challenge thrown by Alyce from Kit & Clowder with this image by Yam Puff. This month she challenged us to practice our curly hair skills, so here I go! Since I also used one of the fabulous sentiments by Kraftin' Kimmie, I'd also like to join their challenge.

Krafty Tiddly Inks

The current challenge at Tiddly Inks is a krafty one! So for this card I used a kraft card as a base and I used one of my favorite Tiddly Inks stamps. I love the hearts die by Marianne Design, it's so sweet and you can use the hearts as well on other projects.

Quick tag

And this is my second make of today. Quick and easy, but I think it's fun to add a tag to presents! The stamp is by Kraftin' Kimmie.

I'd like to join Wonderful Wednesday challenge at Kraftin Kimmie stamps blogspot.

Crafting Sunday

It's crafting sunday! My sister came over to craft together, so here's my first make of today. I used a stamp by  Rachelle Anne Miller, some Echo Park design paper and the sketch showed on the Kraftin' Kimmie blog. With this card I'd like to join their Saturday challenge, with the "circles" theme.

A second card this weekend, a little more CAS this time, I guess. I think it's difficult to find the right balance between embellishments, image, and empty space in such a card. How to make it interesting enough, while still being clean and simple? But I'm pretty happy with this one!

The image is by Kraftin' Kimmie stamps. I'd like to join their Koffie Krop challenge #4: Use an animal.

Hello Weekend

This card was made with as a base a Project Life card. I love all the cards and designs that come with Project Life kits, but I don't seem to be that kind of photo-girl. I actually hardly take any pictures of my life and I don't really have the ambition to do so, but... I still wanted to use these cards! Well, in the meantime I found other applications for them, like pocket letters for example, so I'll expand my collection soon I guess. For now I used one of the larger Project Life cards as a base and colored a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp with my copics. I added some die cuts and voila c'est ca!

With this card I'd like to join the Koffee Krop Challenge #1 (Paper Piercing) at Kraftin' Kimmie!

Saturated Canary

This weekend I made a card with an image by Saturated Canary. I'm quite happy with how the hair and skin tone turned out! Need to buy some extra E copics though, as I miss my E33 for example. For this card I used some gloss to make the balloon pop.

My Best(ies)

While watching an online tournament, I colored up this sweety by Sherri Baldy, from the My besties series. It's the first time I colored one of her images, but they're really amazing, with these long hair curls and nice clothes. Might do some more in the near future! The design paper that I used for this colorful card is from Echo Park, one of my favorite brands of paper.

I started my day with making this card for a colleague of mine. It works best if I start at the beginning of the day making cards. More inspiration, more motivation. This image is by Marianne Design.

World of Wonderful Wednesday

A new project to join the Kraftin' Kimmie Wonderful Wednesday. I love this World of Wonder set, as it is great to color and it combines really well with some of my paper pads. This is a This & That paper pad, and actually the front page of the paper pad (that shows all the different designs in the pad) inspired me for this background.

Graduation tag

Tomorrow one of my friends will graduate, so I made him this tag. Still have to buy a present though. The tag is covered with paper from a gift bag and a clear stamp of the Pure Innocence series by My Favorite Things

It has been quite a while ago that I posted my latest card here. But here I'm again and I hope I can spend some more time on crafting the coming weeks! This card is made with a rubber stamp by Kraftin' Kimmie and my copics. I really should spend a lot more time coloring, but the thing is... sometimes I'm busy with other things (*buzzz priorities buzzz*) and sometimes, I just don't feel like getting all the stuff out on the table. Maybe stupid, but true ;).

This card is quite different from most of the cards I make, as it has a more vintage theme. I actually have quite a lot vintage papers, but often find it hard to combine those with the stamps I have. But this digi by Tiddly Inks appears to go really well with a vintage theme!

Once upon a time

I started with this card with the rules for a Kraftin' Kimmie stamps challenge: no pink or blue. But it appeared that that challenge requires a birthday card, so now I'll enter this one to their Wonderful Wednesday challenge.

Double Krafty

I took a complete different approach on this singing girl by Kraftin' Kimmie stamps tonight, by coloring her in black and kraft with only a few highlight accents in green. I wished I'd have some light green thread for sewing, but since I didn't I just used white. So here's my krafty card!

This morning I finished this card using these bright colors. I love the paper pads by Echo Park, because they have such bright and fun designs. As I started, my plan was to use more of these papers, but actually the white background really highlighted the image, so I left it that way. I used an embossing folder to give the background something extra. Both the image and the sentiment are by Kraftin' Kimmie stamps

I love this sweet image by Rachelle Anne Miller (you can find it at Kraftin' Kimmie).

I think these images are the most beautiful when using pastel light colors, so I gave it a try with my pastel copics.
