A quick little card...

Playing with my Silhouette! I see so many beautiful new word dies coming by......since I have the Silhouette, I made my own....The frame is also from the Silhouette, butterfly from Martha Stewart, and paper from Memory Box. I did pop up the whole panel. And the good thing is, the card is already delivered to a friend.
                                                 Hope you like it, Anja

C4C 270,opposite day!

Happy CRAZY challlenge day! Time for another challenge over at the Crazies, you can check it out HERE.
It is opposite make a card with opposites on it. I choose big and small flowers....the sentiment is from Paper Smooches. The flowers are cut with the Silhouette and the label too. I added some silver stickles to the center of the flowers and a strip of shiny silver paper.

C4C269, a sketch challenge!

Hello Friends, time for another challenge from the Crazies, it's the 3rd Saturday so that means sketch challenge time. Who doesn't like a good challenge?
I went to my huge pile of paper pads, this one is from My mind's eye and turned this into a Valentine card.
The sequins are dark blue, hard to tell in the picture and they are a pain to put on, lol.

Come on over and check out what the other designteam members have created. Join us, if you can, we would love to have you! Take care, Anja

C4C 268, your favourite stamping tool....

Happy Saturday, time for a challenge for the CRAZIES, you can check it out HERE.
The challenge is, if you had to start with a new stamp room and you had you paper and stamps in there...what would be the next "must have" of favourite thing you would put in there....whatever this is for  you, use it on a card. 
Oh my, I don't wanna pick just one...this is too hard, lol, it's like when you have more than one child, you love them all to pieces, not one more than the other, lol.
Just kidding, but I could not pick one. So if I had to pick right now, it would be my Silhouette Cameo, so the background and leaves are cut with the Cameo, and my next choice is dies and punches, so I used an oval Nestabilitie and a butterfly punch from Martha Stewart.
Sentiment is from Just Rite.
Join us if you like, we would love to see your creations!
                                                Happy Crafting, Anja

Clean and Simple, C4C 267

We are starting the New Year over at the CRAZIES with a clean and simple challenge. You can find all the info HERE.
I started out with a piece of watercolour paper and made a background with some shimmering watercolours, really, so easy by wetting your paper and let the water do the work. Then I took this stamp from Penny Black and embossed it with an emerald green embossing powder. Matted it with a piece of green and put it on the card. I did not put a sentiment on.....I find it handy to keep some cards sentiment free till when I need them, so I can add whatever it is if I am about to use the card.
This is to prevent that I am stressing to make a card last minute,lol, doesn't always work.....
Hope you can join us in this challenge! Happy Crafting, Anja
