Mother's day card

I cann't believe I made the card for my Mom already,
the idea came to me when cleaning my house, so now two things are done.
The flower is from Inadinkado stamped in artichoke ink, after that I coloured the flowers with my violet stardust pen.
A little bit of silver stickles in the centre and 2 silver brads, the background and the saying are SU stamps.
The violet paper is Creative Memories paper.
I think it is a busy card, hope my Mom likes it.
That is probably it for today, have to make dinner for my family. Thanks for looking, Anja

Wedding card

We have been invited to a couple weddings this summer so it's time to think about some wedding card ideas.
This one I made today, I am not sure about the hearts on the bottom but I am gonna keep it like it is.
The paper is from Hobby Lobby, the bird stamp from
Inkadinkado, love from SU noteworthy, the hearts are Cuttlebug dies and the CB embossing folder Birds. It is pretty basic.
Now I am gonna think about my Mother's day card for this year..... Hope to post it later, have a good day, Anja

Finally I had some time to stamp today, this is what I made for SC 173. The colours are very unusual for me ( do have the right spelling?).

The ribbon is really pink but it shows as red.Stampset is from SU baby's first and short sayings, cuttlebug dots folder, nestabalities and some dp , don't know from where. The brads are shimmering too and I used my silver stardust pen on the stamped image. Tomorrow I am hoping to post more cards, just no enough time in a day. Thanks for looking, Anja

Happy Monday Morning,
This card I made last week when I was in the mood for watercolouring. It started with a scrap of the green piece
of textured cardstock, no idea where I got that.
The stamps are SU , In full bloom, watercoloured with Tombo markers. The ribbon is from Michaels, scalloped and circle punch and close to cocoa cardstock, the yellow brad is a loopbrad.
Thanks for looking, I am off to stamping with friends on Monday morning, I have nothing prepared but we'll see...
It is always a good time, have a nice day, Anja

Here is what I came up with for the challenge from Sharon's notimetostamp, she has such a beautiful blog.
The birds are stamped with white craft ink and then embossed with white ep, they are from Inkadoo, I have used some "bling" in the corners and underneath the sentiment.
It took me a while to make this card, it is for a couples 55th wedding anniversary.
The burgundy is her favourite colour.
I love to use the Nestabilities!!

My first upload

Here we go, my first upload. I made this card yesterday after I got my Nestabilities this week. They are so nice.
The image is from Penny Black, coloured with crayons and some twinkling H2O on top, the centre of the flowers is done with the silver stardust pen.
The saying is from Close to My Heart, the paper from SU,
perfect plum, mellow moss, artichoke and watercolour paper.
The ribbon was from Michaels, I think.
Hope you like it, thanks Anja

Today is the day.........

Today is the day, I will work on learning how to use my blog. I love to check out the creative stamping blogs from other people, they have inspired me to do this too, and many times ideas have popped into my head when I see all the beautiful cards from other people. I fell in love with stamping a couple years ago and I haven't stopped since. So please bear with me..........
There is one other thing about this whole blog thing, English is my second language........
