Moonlight sympathy

Today I am sharing my second card for the Craft a Scene design team. You can find the blog here. The challenge this month is moon light, you can join us too and have a chance to win a prize! After I had trouble with the first card, I got into the moon mode...... For this card I inked up my Hero arts stamp and stamped it on my background. The background is done with mostly Tim Holtz distress inks and a few SU inks, I will list them for you. For the moon I took a scrap of paper and cut out a 1 1/4 inch circle and used it as a mask , I inked it up with SU so saffron. Then I covered the moon up and started sponging on my other colours: SU bashful blue, TH tumbled glass, TH broken china, TH faded jeans, TH weathered wook, TH black soot, TH spiced marmelade. The sentiment is from Just Rite, Just because set.

Black and barely banana cardstock, SU label punches, Dots embossing folder, some twine out of my stash and liquid pearls to finish it off.

Check out the blogs of the design team members! Thanks for stopping by, Anja

Some new goodies....


Last week a friend and I went shopping in the States, a fun day, and we both really behaved, lol! The lady at the border thought so too, so life is good. I have a basket in my craft room where I put the new things in, I wanna use them before I put them away, you never know what will happen then....

One of the things I got is the Cricut cardtridge Elegant edges, soooooo many possibilities. The sentiment is from Stampabilities and the labels cut with the Cricut, Darice embossing folder, Marianne Dies for the flower and the bird, MS punch and Viva pearls. Ribbon from my stash.

Hope you like it, have a great day, Anja

Sympathy card

It seems like our internet is up an running...grr, I don't know much about computers but I do know how much they can frustrate you!

On the bright side, you have more time in the day if you don't go I made a few cards.

I needed another sympathy card, going through my stuff...used a Marianne Die for the frame, MS borderpunch, Nestabilities and stamps from Clear Dollar stamps, Hero and Cornish Heritage. Black Viva pearls drops to finish it off. Oh and the butterfly is a Joy craft die.

Just for you

Finally I get a chance to post a card, keep your fingers crossed, the internet is been out most of the weekend, the wireless still doesn't work, not sure what is going on.

This card is done with Stampabilities stamps , MS border, Nesties, Fiskars border punch and the labels have been cut with the Cricut, Elegant edges. I use my Cricut mostly for scrapbooking, that's a shame with so many possibilities.....

The good thing is, when the computer is not working, you get a lot more time to play, LOL!

Thanks for stopping by, Anja

Moon light card

Some times it takes a lot of things to make a card............the challenge this month at Craft a Scene is moonlight.......and boy oh boy did I struggle with this one. My wastebasket is over flowing and my fingers have all kinds of distress inks on them. To be honest, I don't think I have ever made a card with the shining moon in it, I have drooled over other peoples creations.
So I searched and checked out blogs and galleries.....did some shopping....and then I came across this stamp from Stampendous, and I knew I had to buy it. The sample I saw at the store was done without a moon, and with Tim Holtz inkers, and those I don't have so.....I worked with what I do have , and believe me I am not short of anything, LOL. So I played with different colours distress inks and sponges, here is a list of the colours that made it for my final project:

spiced marmelade, tumbled glass, peeled paint oh and I started with SU so saffron.

I tried hard to bring in some light and darker colour tones and to show the moon light shining in the water. Glitter came out too but I quickly discovered that that was not gonna work for me. After I was happy with the image, I cut it out, matted it on a scalloped rectangle, used a Crafts Concepts embossing folder,fiskars border punch, some twine, black Viva pearls and a sentiment from Stampendous. So that is all about this card, a little bit of me and a whole lot of another unknown, talented crafter. My next card will be all me, I promise, but sometimes we all need a little help.

Hop on over to the blog and I hope you will be able to join us this month, looking forward to see all your creations!!

Have a great day, Anja
