As I am anxiously waiting for my Club Scrap box.
with the real paper and stamps, I thought I would combine
the digital paper with some other Club Scrap stamps
for a challenge on the Creative with Stamps blog.

The stamps I used for the fruit challenge are from
the Club Scrap Cantina kit (July 2015).

I printed the background paper from the Pattern Play
digital kit and put this paper in my misti and stamped
the sentiment(black) and the lines (ash).

The apples are stamped on a seperate piece of paper.
First in neon green and next partly in carnation.
Then I cut out both apples and added them to
the background with foam tape.

The gemstones are just a little extra bling to the card
and not only on the apples, but also on the dot of the sentiment.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

Baby and coffee

Last day of baby cards! I have to move on, but I could not resist
using the tiny feet for a last time. Wanted to make some 
non-conventional cards in totally different colors.

Then my new stamps, papers and dies arrived. Yes, coffee theme
from Stampin Up! out of the new catalogue. A set called Coffee
Cafe, that comes with wonderful papers and ribbons. I wanted
them so I was ready for the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog
Hop dat is real soon.
Here is an impression of all the new goodies.
I must order more paper, that is just way too cute and lovely!
So how about a card within the baby theme?
The sentiment is from another new set called
In the City.
Here a close up of the coffee cup.
Yes, behind the cup I used the sizzix coffee bean
embossing folder.

Thanks for looking
and have a creative day!

Art Neko for Father's Day

I made this card for Father's Day with stamps from
the Art Neko Marine sheet2 and is also on the
Art Neko Blog. Here I share more detailed pictures
on how I made this card.

This is how I started the card. Take a regular card and from the inside
cut a strip of 1 inch away until the middle fold.

on the fron side of the card I cut only part of the 
1 inch strip. (I cut on both sides 1 inch).

Fold these strips towards the front of the card and make
it look like the collar of a shirt.

Next I took the shell stamp and walnut stain
oxide distress ink and stamped it on a piece
of orange cardstock.

I cut the cardtock in two and taped it to the
front of the shirt.

Next I took a piece of 3 x 3 inch copy paper and started
collage stamping on it and also colored it orange.

This is the finished piece of paper, now ready for folding into a tie.

Here you see the finished tie. I add also here the
folding template, that I found on the internet:
If you click on the picture, you can see a larger version.

Here on the detail, you see the tie added and the
collar fastned with 2 little orange brads.

You can add any sentiment to your liking.

Thanks for looking
and have a creative day!
