Lots of pink and sparkle!

Everybody likes pink flowers and bling, right, LOL!!
In my perfect world you do...
Last night I played with some flowers I have had forever....and some beads and some floral wire, a glue gun, dies and glimmer goosebumps.
I made a floral spray, sprayed it with shimmery goosebumps, the doily is also "goosebumped".
This morning everything was nicely dried up and I finished the card with a sentiment from
Just Rite and a Spellbinders tag.
This is not a card to send in an envelope, it is gonna be put in a clear box and hand delivered.
Hope you have a great day and no rain in your part of the world, Anja

Blank card

Not so sure if I should post this card or not....but here it is.
The background is made with acrylic paint sponge daubers, had to have them a couple of years ago....still sitting in one of my drawers. The butterfly is stamped on acetate, the little butterfly and the border are dies from Cheery Lynn.
Let's just say, I will try again....
Have a great day, Anja

PBSC178, make a wish!

Second post today, I was so lucky to have time to play in the Penny Black challenge, you can read all about it HERE.
Green and trees is the theme for this week. I love the Penny Black stamps but I don't have a lot of Christmas ones, so I had to make something else work. The tree is a diecut from Marianne designs and the cute dogs and sentiment are from the set Critter party. I can just picture the bigger dog telling the little one to make a wish for Christmas, LOL!
I used a lot of different supplies for this card. First I stamped the sky with light blue ink and the background stamp from Impression Obsession, the bottom part is separate and I used a post it note to make some hills and sponged some light blue on.
The little snowflakes are a diecut from Cheery Lynn, the dogs are coloured with Prisma's and gamsol, cut out, shaped, and put together with silicone kit. THe snow on the tree is white flock and the snow around the dogs and tree is a mix of white flock and diamond dust. Then I used some stickles, green and red, Viva clear gel pen, Viva silver glitter pen, the SU label punch to cut out the sentiment, some bling from my stash. The red background is done with an embossing folder from Darice. Can you see all the fun I had?
Hope you have some time to play too, good night, Anja

Happy New Home!

Last week we went to a housewarming party and of course I wanted to make a little card to go with the gift. I have used the little background stamp from Prima, after I stamped the image and inked the edges, I embossed the whole piece with UTEE. The sentiment is from Hero and the 2 keys are made with the Cricut. If you cut out the keys a couple of times from cardstock and you put them together with the sticker maker , it starts to look like a real key.
Hope you like it, have a great day, Anja

PBSC 177, Gold and presents

Here is my card for the PBSC 177, you can read all the details HERE.
For this challenge, you are to use GOLD and PRESENTS! Who doesn't like gold and presents?
I love the little boxes under the tree, you know, the tiny, pretty ones, I sometimes get one of those, and it usually means gold and something shiny, LOL!
Anyhow, Christmas is 5 weeks away and you can combine making your Christmas cards with this challlenge if you like.
This image is coloured with Prisma's and Gamsol, the present is cut out and popped up.
I matted it on the doily die from Cheery Lynn, which I cut from gold paper, so pretty!
The background is a Sizzix embossing folder.
Then I got out different colours of stickles and the Viva glass effect pen, love that stuff.
Hope you like it too, have a great day, Anja

My mojo was gone for a couple of days....but I got it back! After surfing so many different blogs, I came across this card HERE and I just had to case it.
Love the clean and simple layout. The one little cupcake is made with a EK punch, the other one is from Inkadinkadoo, stamped twice, coloured and cut out. The cupcakes have Viva glass effect gel on them and the blue icing has some of MS iridescent glitter.
The sentiment is from Stampendous, stamped and cut out with the SU label punch. DP is from the Paper studio. A nestabilitie for the square and the inside is embossed with the CB dots folder.
Some bling from my stash and done!
Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by, Anja

Penny Black Christmas card, PBSC176

How are you all doing with your Christmas cards? If you can use some help, you should check out the challenge over at Penny Black, you can go HERE to read all about it.
I had to play, so much fun!
I coloured the image, a thorny affair, with my Prisma's and gamsol, cut her out twice and after shaping and molding her a little bit, I put her together with silicone gel. This is my newly learned favourite technique!
The snowflakes are from CheeryLynn, beautiful detailed dies and so easy to cut out with the Vagabond. The sentiment is from Kaisercraft, stamped on the smallest die from labels 5.
The twine is from my stash. Some stickles were added, diamond and lime green, and some Viva
pens were used. The background is an embossing folder from Crafts too, snowflake banner.
A bit of diamond dust for snow for the final touch.
Hope you like it!
I am off to bed, Anja

More Penny Black...

Last week I had the pleasure to go to a class from Judy Kennedy, she is a very talented lady and I learned so many things. Judy is an amazing artist, it is too bad she doesn't have a blog, she is a regular visitor, and now teaching classed here too, at SGD and through the store you can find her beautiful work. If you see her projects, you know, it's from Judy!
This is not a card from that class, but I did use some of the techniques. I had to go out and buy
silicone kit, Judy showed us how to really pop your images with it. My glitter also came out of the drawers. This card was done with a lot of time in between steps, glitter and diamond dust, stickles, shimmering Goosebumps, the Cricut (Cindy Loo cardtridge), Viva glass effect pen, flowersoft, MS tinsel glitter, MS butterfly punch, flowers, glimmermist, embossing folder, Prismacolour pencils and gamsol, Marianne dies, various punches, I think I named most of the supplies used.
It was very relaxing to work on this card, even though it took a long time to finish it, lots of fun!
I know that the person who gets this card, will appreciate it!!
Hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Anja

Penny Black birthday card PBSC175

It' s been ages I have played the Penny Black Saturday Challenge! This week it is sketch time, I sat down and had fun making this card.
You can find the challenge here.
The cat in the basket is from the set In the Garden and the sentiment from Critter Party.
I coloured with Prismacolour pencils, used my blender pencil and some Gamsol. After colouring, and adding some Viva glitter pens and glass effect, I cut out the image, the face twice and popped it up. The dp is from Echo Park, country drive. I cut a circle with Nesties and embossed it, the little circle and the turqoise circle are cut with Nellie Snellen dies.
The yellow flowers are from Crealies, I inked the edges and shaped them with the Punch a bunch flower tool kit. Some bling and greenery to make the flower spray (is that what you call it?).
If you click on the image you get a better look! I am a little frustrated with the photo editing, I am sure it's me, but frustrating it is.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Anja
