Oops, the same colours for Sharon's challenge

For the challenge from Sharon, no time to stamp,(ssnotime36) you have to use some bug, a butterfly or dragonfly is fine too.
I didn't realize the last time I did her challenge I used the same colours as on this card.
Turqoise and pink....anyway there is a butterfly and a dragonfly brad on this card.
I have coloured the butterfly with twinkling H2O's, the rest is pretty basic.
Another challenge done, a couple more to go.
My husband is still in the field so I am off to my stamp space.
Have a good night, I didn't get the time fixed I will try again.
Thanks, Anja

Another cupcake card............

Finally some time for me to stamp (at home), I have a couple different challenges on my work table and I would love to post them all really soon.
This week I have teached a workshop and I also went to one myself yesterday. This one was from Stampart (London) and it was a lovely day.
So now I have some new goodies and a ton of ideas.
This is what I have made for TECC17, Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge.
The dp is out of my scrap stash, the other paper is SU, ruby red and certainly celery.
The stamps are from Inkadinkadoo and the metallic dots from
I have put some yellow stickles on the cupcake and around the
scalloped cirle I have used my silver stardust pen.
It feels really good to just sit down and make some cards.
Hope to be back soon, thanks for stopping by, Anja

The right time...

I have tried to fix the time, before you think I am posting really early. It should be okay now.

A card for a birthday boy, SC 176

A card for a birthday boy, I have used Sketch challenge 176.
It took me a long time to get it "just right" and I am not sure I did do that.
The cupcake is from Inkadinkadoo, the saying from Darcy's.
The paper is SU and the dp is from Creative Memories.
Brads from Michaels and ribbon from my stash.
I put some silver stickles on the icing.
The saying is raised.
Hope to do better next time, tfl, Anja

A blanc card

Somewhere at Splitcoast I saw a card with this stamp where they used those colours. I really liked it and this is what I
made with it. It is a blanc card, always handy to have in your box for when you need it.
The background is done with so saffron ink on so saffron paper, it is French script from SU.
The flowers are from Stampendous, stamped in black and watercoloured with crayon (so saffron).
I have used my Nestabilities and some stickles.
Hope you are having a great day, tfl, Anja

More pink and another challenge...

For TLC 168 you had to emboss an image and then watercolour it.
I embossed the image from Magenta with black ep on watercolour paper and then used my pretty in pink crayon and aquapainter. I have cut out the flower.
Layered on silver paper and then on black.
It is a pink/black card again and flowers!
In the centre of the flower I put some chrystal effect with tiny silver beads. The image is also raised. The saying is from SU and the metallic brads from Joan's.
For the scalloped border I have used my split punch.
That's it for today, no more time to stamp.
Thanks for stopping by, Anja

Two buttons on a card.......

Last night I made this card for the challenge from Sharon, no time to stamp. I was planning to do some stitching but I messed it up so then I got my buttons out and I "sewed" on those two pink buttons. So I hope it counts.
The stamp is from Inkadinkadoo, the saying from SU, the metallic dots from Joan's crafts.
The ribbon is probably from Michaels, cann't remember,
the paper is SU.
It doesn't happen very often that I use white cardstock for the base but this card just needed it.
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your day, Anja

Elegant birthday card, SFYTT

It is so nice to find all those challenges, so many people make beautiful things and are willing to share it with all of us.
Thank you!!
This is the card I made for the sketch from Jen del Muro's
Sketch For You To Try.
The stamps are from Inkadinkadoo and the paper is all from SU.
The pearls make the card really elegant, I think.
Hope you like it too, thanks for looking, enjoy your day, Anja

Another Mother's day card

Here is the card I made for SC 175.
I ended up selling my other Mother's day card so I need a new one for my Mom.
The flower is from Hero Arts, the saying from Inkadinkadoo.
Paper from SU, celery and wasabi, the dp is from Hobby Lobby, ribbon is celery from SU.
Besides the gemstones in the corners I put some stickles in the centre of the flowers.
It didn't take too long to make this one.
Enjoy your evening, Anja

Bright colours

Today I got some time to play with my new set
from Inkadinkado, we have had nice company from Holland and grandparents day at school, no time to stamp but that's okay.
This card is for a little girl, first I wasn't sure about the yellow but it is as it is.
I have coloured the cupcakes with my regular pencils and used some Gamsol. The dp is from Creative Memories, I also used my red stardust pen and some silver stickles, hard to see.
My batteries are running low so I better put them in the charger, hope to post some more cards soon. Thanks for looking, Anja

The inside of the card

This is how it looks on the inside.TFL

Same layout, different colours.

Wow, that was quick for me, I have used the same layout but with different colours.
First I picked my ribbon and then the rest came together, the bird is from Inkadinkado, embossed in gelly brown. Same saying from CTMH.
I am pleased how it turned out.
I will also post a picture from the inside, verse
from Inky Antics and the little bird from Inkadinkado.
My other sister has a birthday soon so I better get going. Take care, Anja

Congratulations card

A card for my Mom and her husband, they have an anniversary coming up. You can use "congratulations" for that, right?
You can probably tell already that I love flowers!
This stamp is from Sandi Miller, coloured with
twinkling H2O's, the sentiment from Close to my Heart, cardstock from Hobby Lobby and SU.
Tulips are my Mom's favourites, I hope she likes it.
I have used a lot of pink lately, maybe time to look at some other colours.
Back to my stamping space for another anniversary card for my sister and her hubby.
Thanks for looking! Have a great day, Anja
