Party Time

Good morning every body, I'm back with a new card. I want to thank you for all your visits on my last blogpost and your lovely comments.
One of the questions was if I could get hobby stuff here in Egypt. And I have to say a big "No!".
As far as I know you cannot even buy card stock in Egypt. So basically nothing.
That's why you see a lot of old papers on my cards now. That has an advantage. You finally use all your old but still beautiful stuff, what you've been stashing over the years. And of course, it save you a lot of money! Lol!
But, I do buy sometimes some new stuff and let it send to my mothers home in Holland. But because I go only once a year to Holland, so when I finally have it here in Luxor, Egypt, it is already old again! Lol! And letting it sending to Egypt is not an option because the post is terrible over here. It will probably get lost.
So let's go on to my new card for today.
I used a digi from Morgan Fitzsimons, and this is one of here lady heads, "Cameo 13". I do love her lady heads! I coloured this beauty up with my Copic Markers; cut her out with Nestabilities 'Labels Small' and matted her on red card stock also cut out with Nestabilities, 'Labels Big'.
The paper pad I used is from Bo Bunny, 'Rose Café Collection'.
The sentiment I used is a stamp from Lili of the Valley.
For the rest I used a Doohickey edge die from Magnolia.
The leaves underneath the flowers are a die from Cheery Lynn, 'Olive Branch' and an oldy from I think, Marianne Design.
The vintage seam binding comes from Wild Orchid Crafts and also the flowers/roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Behind the flowers I put some lovely fluffy feathers.
For the bling I used Stickels, 'Star Dust'. And the edges of the papers I inked up with Distress Ink, 'Walnut Stain'.
The flat back pearls coming form my stash.
The inside of the card I decorated accordingly. The stamps I used on the white card stock are from Pink Paislee, 'London Market'. I stamped them with Distress Ink, 'Victorian Velvet'.
That was it for now. I hope you like the card. Thanks for passing by and hope to see you soon again.

Pure Beauty

After a long period I'm back again with a new card. It took me a long time because last summer we start to build our house here in Luxor, Egypt. And in October it was finished.
After that I had to order closets so I could rearrange my hobby room again.
And living in Egypt means that every thing takes a long time. But finally things are back to normal and I can craft again.
For my first card I choose a image of Hannah Lynn. I do love her images and find them rather easy to colour. After such a long break my colouring gets a little rusty. Lol.
This image is called "Analinda" and I coloured her with my Copics.
For the papers I used a very old, but still favourite paper pad from Basic Grey, 'Wisteria'.
Behind the papers you can just see a paper doily peeping out.
On the right side of the card I used a dye from Noor! Design, 6002/0260. The little corner is also made with a dye from Noor! Design, 6002/0356.
The swirl is a dye from Cheery Lynn, 'Fancyful Flourish', and on the right side I used 'Olive Branch'.
The dragon fly is a Doohickey from Magnolia.
And the last one I used is a edge punch from EK-Succes.
The flowers are coming from Wild Orchid Crafts.The ribbon and flat back pearls are from my stash.
For the bling I used as usual Stickels, 'Star Dust'.
Thanks for visiting my blog and I hope to be back soon.

Just For You

Good evening every body. Thanks a lot for your visit on my last card and your lovely comments. As always very much appreciated. Today I have a new card for you.
Again with a digi stamp from Morgan Fitzsimons. This beauty is "Fae 3" and I coloured her with my Copic Markers.
The designer papers I used coming from a old paper pad from Bo Bunny, 'Ambrosia Collection'.
The sentiment stamps on the outside and inside are from Lili of the Valley, Set 26 'Simply Sophisticated'.
I cut the digi stamp out with a die from Crealies, CLNest XXL nr. 24.

Skin: E000, E00, E01, E11, E93
Mouth: R20, R22, R35

The flowers used on the card coming from Wild Orchid Crafts. The hydrangeas are from Prima Marketing. On the hydrangeas I used some brads and a spacer, all from The Hobbyhouse.
On the left side I used a Doohickey die from Magnolia. And at the right side a die from Cheery Lynn, 'Olive Branch'.
The inside of the card I decorated accordingly. For that I only used one paper from the paper pad. But I loved that drawn ornament on the bottom. And it left room to stamp another sentiment on it.
On the top corners I used an photo corner die.
To finish the card off I used some lace coming from my stash. In the top corner I made a bow with it together with some yellow Scrappers Floss. The rhinestones are from The Hobbyhouse.
The little butterflies are made with a die from Noor! Design, 6002/0390.
For the bling I put Stickels, 'Stardust' on the flowers and the butterflies.
That was it for today. I hope you like this card again. Thanks for your visit and hope to see you soon again. Have a nice week!

Good day to every body. First of all, thanks for the lovely comments on my previous card!
It has been a few weeks ago that I put up a new card on my blog. I was rather busy with all kinds of family stuff.
And I also must admit that it has been rather hot over here in Luxor and than sometimes I can't put myself in to making a card.
But today I have a new one for you.
Again I used a digital stamp from Morgan Fitzsimons, this is 'Sorrel'. I bought this one already ages ago and never coloured him up. Unfortunately this digi is not standing in her shop any more.
Because it's a male/boy card, I kept it very simple with little embellishments.
The papers coming from a paper pack from Basic Grey, 'Vintage'.
The sentiment stamp is coming from Flourishes.
To create a little bit dimension I attached the digi stamp and the sentiment stamp with foam to the papers.
For the rest I only used some green brads up in the corners.
Copic colours used for the image:
Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, E93
Mouth: R20, R22
Hair: C0, C1, C3, C5, BV31
Armour: T1, T3, T5, T7
Arm protector: T1, T3, T5, B21, B24, B26, B28, Y17
Clothes: YG61, YG63, YG67, BG11, BG15
Bow: E31, E33, E57, Y13, Y15, Y17
Ruby: R32, R35, R37

The inside of the card I decorated very simple. I only used a Rectangle Nestabilitie and Scalloped Rectangle Nestabilie, so you can write your on message in it.
That was it for today peeps. I hope you like my card again and hope to see you a little bit sooner this time.
Have a nice weekend and thanks for your visit!

Good day everybody on this sunny day here in Egypt, Luxor. First of all I have to say thank you for the lovely comments you left on my blog for my last card. Today I'm back with a new card for you.
This one is made with a digi stamp from Morgan Fitzsimons, one of her 'Fae' series. Isn't she lovely! I coloured her up with my Copic Markers. By the way, this is 'Fae 28'.
The papers I used are from a paper pad from Kaisercraft, 'Fairy Dust'. Super lovely papers in lilac, teal and silver.
The sentiment stamp is a digi from my computer. Unfortunately I do not know the artist any more.
On the top of the card I used a die from Tim Holtz. Cut it out twice, one in the lilac card stock and one in the designer paper. The butterflies in the designer paper out cut lose and the attached them on the card stock.
The little butterfly in the right corner is a die from Noor! Design, 6002/0390 '2 Vlinder'.
The edge I made with a punch from Fiskars, 'Apron Lace'.

The lace is from my stash and I also used some lilac Scrappers Floss. And I put some lilac stamens between it.
On the side I squeezed in a little tag under the papers. The swirl stamped on the tag is a stamp from Unique Hobby, ''Grunge Swirl #1'. The ink used is from Memento, 'Lavender Lulu'.

The beautiful butterfly is a die from Cheery Lynn and is out of a set of three, 'Small Exotic Butterfly #1'.
Above the sentiment I glued a little pearl heart.

The inside of the card I decorated accordingly but kept it simple. For that I used one of the papers from the paper pad with all pretty sayings and fluttering butterflies with glitter on it.
The round papers I cut out with Nestabilities, so you can write your own message on it.
The little stamped butterfly on it is a stamp from Darcie's and I stamped her also with Memento Ink, 'Lavender Lulu'.
For finishing the card I used Stickels, 'Silver' on the flowers and butterflies, and also along the edges of the digi stamp.

The pearls and rhinestones are also coming from The Hobbyhouse.
I hope you like this card again. Thanks for your visit and always appreciate your lovely comments! Have a great weekend.
