1st contribution Cowgirl Up and Mojo Monday Challenge

1st contribution Cowgirl Up Stamps 

Here is my first card for the DT of Cowgirl Up Stamps by CJ and my contribution for the  Mojo Monday 135. 
I choose Dalton... she was one of the first digi stamps of CJ and I love her. The front of the card is fold back so you see a part of the inside of the card. With the newest papers of Prima Markting collection I made this card. I used two different Martha Stewart punches and with my silhouette I cut out the tiny shoes she looses while flying off to send you hugs.
Hope you like it and you will come over to the new Cowgirls Sunday Stamp Challenge and join us in the first challenge of this year at May 2nd 2010.
 See you there.

Workshop by Papers and Pictures

Workshop by Tracie Hudson from Prima Marketing at Papers and Pictures.

Saturday april 10th Tracie Hudson from Prima Marketing was in the Netherlands and she gave a workshop at the store Papers and Pictures. So early in the morning I left home to pick up my best friend and together we went to Doorn. 
The morning workshop was an mini album about family. This was a great oppotunity for my to use the photo's from the photoshoot last year. So I printed them in black and white to match any color that the workshop could be.
It was really hard work that morning, but the results were amazing. I love what I made... and after the workshop I realized that there were so many papers and embellishment remaining.. we even got a sheet with the newest stamps to keep... 
Tracie... I thank you from the bottom of my heart... You are amazing... we talked together about our personal lives and you shared so much... I thank you for this. And also for so many small and big tips and tricks you teached me. Again... you rock girl.

 This is my result 

The afternoon was a bit more relaxed. We made two layouts with the newest stuff from Prima Marketing... the bag was again filled with so many papers and embellishments... It was a real treat to follow this workshop. And if you ever see the change to follow a workshop by Tracie... don't hasitat...just book it... it's worth it...

Here are the two layouts I made:


Thanks for looking and please leave a note for me.

Shelly's Images Terrifically Thrilling Thursday Challenge.

Shelly's Images Terrifically Thrilling Thursday Challenge.

This week's TTT Challenge is a RECIPE Challenge. I'm not sure about you, but I always LOVE a good recipe!!
Todays recipe is to use:

1 Embossed Pattern (either dry embossing or stamped embossing)
2 Patterned Papers and

At least 3 pieces of Bling (We LOVE BLING around here!!)

"Soak of the winterblues, cause spring has sprung"

Your're wonderful...

 An easel card

.......with lot's of stickles and bling, embossed papers, patterned papers
and colored for the first time with copics. Oh I love those copics... the colors blend so easy and it is a joy to work with them. The papers I used are K&Company Daisy by Tim Coffey. The white paper is with embossed daisy's. I love this paper and it is in my stock for a long time now. But this stamp just asked for these papers. I colored the embossed daisy's with stamping ink and added pearls by prima marketing.
I wanted to make an easel card for some time now and I decided to do it now. The text i wanted on the card was the following...
"Soak of the winterblues, cause spring has sprung"

Enjoy and leave a comment if you like it.

Mojo Monday #133

Welcome to April! It's the first Monday of the month, so that means it's CONTEST time! For those of you new to Mojo, we just play for fun most weeks, but the first sketch of every month is our Mojo Madness contest with prizes for our top picks. So dust off your mojo and get ready to stamp! This month I'm taking a little break from the sketch drawing board, but the Mojo girls have some fabulous sketches planned for April. This week's sketch comes from Janette Olen
Deze kaart heb ik vanmorgen gemaakt voor deze wedstrijd. Het papier komt uit mijn restjes voorraad. De stempel is van Mo Manning en ingekleurd met Derwent potloden en terpetine. Ik heb de randen van het papier distressed and geinkt met  tim Holz distress inkten broken china, fired brick en spiced Marmalade.. De ovalen zijn gesneden met mijn silhouette.

I made this card this morning for this great challenge. The paper is from my stash. De digistamp is from Mo Manning and colored with Derwent pencils and terpentine. The edges of the papers are distressed with Tim Holz distresser and inked with his ink in the colors Broken china, Spiced marmalade and Fired brick. The ovals are cut with my silhouette.

Here is my card for this DT call. After some busy weeks I finally surfed round my favourite sites and almost missed this call. So CJ, thanks for extending this call. I feel so lucky....
The stamp is Lou from CJ's Cowgirl up Stamps and I love her. From the moment I looked at her I knew what color I wanted to use for her. The challenge was to find matching papers... well that succeded as well.. :-) I printed Lou twice. One I colored with Derwent pencils and Terpetin, the lace is made with stickles, the other one was cut out for masking. The background of the colored Lou is with fired brick and spiced marmalade from Tim Holz, the stamps are from Fancy Pants in the color victorian velvet by Tim Holz. Then when this was done I took dark peony from color box and colored the background again. The flowers are cut out with my silhouette and handmade and pieced together after inking them.
I used a Martha Stewart punch for the border. Unfortunally the colors on the photo are no match for the real card. Hope that the impression of the colors is clear.

Lou is for me the Fairy Queen who brings the flowers alive after a cold winter.

Vrolijk Pasen / Happy Easter

Mo's weekly challenge #25  Pastel colors:

Helaas door de drukte niet aan de vorige challenge niet mee kunnen doen, maar deze week ben ik weer van de partij. Ik heb een Side step card gemaakt. De tutorial vond ik op Shelly's Images. Ik heb op deze kaart het papier heel bewust zodanig op de kaart verwerkt zodat het mooie papier zichtbaar in tact zou blijven.
De versieringen zijn gemaakt van de bijbehorende stickers welke ik op papier heb geplakt, uitgeknipt en geplakt. Het papier is zo mooi. Het is een oude lijn van K& Company. Digitale stempel is van Mo's.

Unfortunally I was unable to join the challenge last week. I made a side step card from wich I found the tutorial on Shelly's Images. The paper is a old line from K&Company as are the stickers. I added them om cardstock and cut them out. The stamp is from Mo's and colored with Derwent pencils.

Het was een drukke week / It's been a busy week

Wat een drukke week is het geweest. Veel rompslomp en niet eens voorbereidingen voor pasen. Maar goed... vandaag heb ik heerlijk de tijd gehad om de stempels die ik afgelopen week heb gekleurd te verwerken tot kaarten. En tot mijn verbazing was ineens halverwege de ochtend mijn mojo weg.
Ik ben zo veel bezig geweest met "cute" kaarten dat ik de feeling naar wat stoerdere kaarten kwijt was. Dus mezelf eens flink toegesproken, wat op het internet zitten surfen en daar werd de mojo ook niet blij van... en uiteindelijk gewoon gaan doen... wel,,,, ik ben bevallen van twee kaarten voor jongens die hun vormsel hebben gedaan en twee kaarten voor twee meisjes die hun vormsel hebben gedaan. Deze vier kaarten zijn in opdracht gemaakt voor een winkel in mijn dorp namelijk Een heerlijke winkel met bijzondere kaarten, snuisterijen voor allerlei evenementen.

What a week I had. And not even preparing for Easter... anyway.... during my spare time last week I coloured some digital and normal stamps and finally today I had the time to make some cards with them...
Well... that was the planning. But somehow I lost my mojo during the morning. I spend so much time on making "cute" cards that I had trouble in making some tougher looking cards. I surfed the internet and my mojo skipped even more.... After a good kick in the ...... I started just doing some things without my mind and the flow came a bit shy looking around the corner. 
These cards are specially made for the great store in my village. It's called and it's filled with all kind of special occasions stuff.

Girl you got your confirmation.
De kaart is uitgesneden met mijn Silhouette. De stempel van Mo's en tevens mijn bijdrage voor Mojo Monday 132. Ingekleurd met Derwent, Hotfix steentjes, lint en papier wat ik nog had liggen.

Gefeliciteerd met je vormsel.
De stempel is van Mo's. De stempel is ingekleurd met Derwent potloden en bewerkt met geurloze terpetine. Ik denk er hard over om eens te gaan stoeien met de copics. Helaas zijn ze behoorlijk prijzig en ik vind het lastig om via internet kleuren te kiezen. Dus ik pieker gewoon nog even door hierover. :-)
Papier is van Bazill, Basic Grey/Recess, pijl is van Tilm Holz en bewerkt met paintdabber en stempelinkt. Eronder een windroosstempel en lint.

In de wolken met je vormsel.
Op de foto komen de kleuren helaas niet tot zijn recht. De stempel is van Mo's en is een jongen die luchtgitaar speelt. Mijn zoontje kon dat vroeger ook doen... genieten toch...Ook ingekleurd met derwentpotloden. De achtergrond van de stempel is ingekleurd door een zelfgemaakte paperpiecing wolk en dan lekker met inkt de achtergrond bewerken. Lint en papier uit oude voorraad.

Gefeliciteerd met je vormsel.
Eindelijk weer eens een Magnolia stempel ingekleurd. Zou door die digitale stempels bijna vergeten dat je deze ook nog hebt... ;-)
Papier en lint komt uit de oude voorraad. Ingekleurd met Derwent.

Fijne paasdagen allemaal.
