Happy Father's day!

Can you tell I am loving the distress inks from Tim Holtz? They are so fun and easy to play with and create beautiful backgrounds. This little stamp is from Prima stamps, 7 pieces for under $3 over at SGD. I don't know who made the sentiment, punch from Martha Stewart and some embossing folders. And let's not forget the twine. I followed a sketch I found online,

You should check it out too! Thanks for stopping by, Anja

Casing myself

Today I am showing you a card, where I cased myself, LOL! Changed up the colours a little bit, still lots of pink, different borderpunch ( I got a few to choose from) and different paper.

Maybe that is the way to go, if you think it works, make more than one? Thanks for stopping by and have a great day, Anja

A couple more....

So bear with me, posting this from my IPod......I need all the help I can get,lol.I made 3 more cards with the same technique. Let's hope the post will go on, thanks, Anja

P.S. Click on the first picture and you will be able to see both cards!

A different scene

While I was working and thinking about my cards for Craft a Scene this month ( the challenge is Spring flowers) I browsed and played and tried and in the end I had 2 card with Stampscapes and flowersoft, well, my DH said that wasn't good enough, they were too much alike, LOL. He even helped me and I I started to try and then came up with this, I had a "real"card, from the store and it looked somewhat like no stamping at all, but a scene I made, with flowers from punch a bunch, Martha Stewart butterfly, clouds from a MFT die, the rest is free handed .

So let me know what you think and please be honest, it is different for sure. Come and play with us and check out the work of the other design team members HERE.

So simple

I have seen this technique done on several blogs and I have wanted to try it is so simple! Mask off an area, use some Tim Holtz distress inks, stamp, remove the mask and add a sentiment and a bird in those cards. Sentiments from Hero arts, tree branch is from Inkadinkadoo, bird is a Mc Gill punch, some score lines were added because I just had to add something, lol! I making a couple more and then I can give it away as a set, that's my plan, let's hope I get to finish it. Thanks for stopping by, Anja

Playing with the left overs

I had 2 classed recently at SGD and it was so much fun, thank you to all the ladies who came out! There is always some pieces and stuff left so I sat down and created a card, Ican't seem to throw anything out. The rose die is from MFT, didn't have that one so I had to try it, it works great! Sentiment from Just Rite. The little flowers are from the medium hydra cluster punch from punch a bunch. Have a great day and thanks for looking, Anja
