Goodday everybody. I'm back again with a new card for you. This time with a coloured digi stamp.
The digi stamp is from Mayzy Art, 'Dancer Flamenco'. I coloured this beauty up with my Copic Markers. Unfortunately I can't give you to Copic colours, cause it is already a while ago I coloured this one up and I don't have the list any more.
I cut here out with a Nestabilitie, 'Labels Four'. On the rose in her hair and on her dress I put some Glossy Accents.
The papers used come from a paper pad from Bo Bunny, 'Serenade'.
In the right corner I used a swirl die from Cuttlebug.

The big flower arrangement are made with flowers all coming from Wild Orchid Crafts. The little swirl is a die from Memory Box.
The leaves under it are a die from Noor! Design, Vintage Flourishes 'Leaf 2'.

The ribbon is coming from my stash as is the pearl brad. I made a bow with two ribbons, black and red.
The sentiment comes from a set from Tina Wenke.
I decorated the inside accordingly. For that I only used a paper from the paper pad and made an oval with my Nestabilities, 'Classic Scalloped Oval Large' and 'Classic Oval Large'.
In the left corner I put a flower with a green pearl brad in the middle, these are all coming from my stash.
I inked up all my papers with Distress Ink, 'Black Soot'.
On the flowers and everything else needed I put some Stickels, 'Star Dust'.
And some red flat back pearls. And finishing this I see I forgot to glue the little butterfly on to the card. Lol. Well, imagine her on the card to.
That was it for today. Thank you for visiting my blog and if you feel like it, leave a comment. Much appreciated. Have a nice evening and see you back soon.

Believe In Your Dreams

Good day to you all. I hope you had a lovely weekend. I sure did. Was busy with making another Vintage card and this is what I came up with.
The image is again somewhere from the internet. I cut her out with a die from Noor! Design, 'Ovaal' 6002/0258.
The papers I used are from Maja Design, one of their first series.
Here an up close photo of the cut out picture. The photo is still a little bit bleak. Have to get used to my new camera. Lol.

 All the flowers I used are coming from Wild Orchid Crafts. I cut out a little fence with a Doohickey die from Magnolia, 'Lovely Fence'.
Under the flowers I used a leaf die from Creative Expressions, 'Trailing Ivy'. I used that die twice and cut of from one branch only the top an put it on my card.
I put some lovely blue buttons here and there between the flowers. These buttons are also from WOC.
And also stuck some blue stamens between the roses.
The little butterflies on the fence are make with an old punch and the one on top is a die from Die-Namics.
On the bottom of the card I made a bow from Vintage Seam Binding, coming from WOC. I attached a little brassy charm to it. On top of the bow is a blue pearl brad from The Hobbyhouse.
The sentiment are stickers from Tim Holtz,
The inside of the card I decorated also. For that I used a tag from the papers and matted it on blue and then kraft card stock.
Then attached gold wire on the back of it an fastened it with a nail-like spacer so it looks like something hanging on a wal.
At the top corners I used a photo-die from Quickutz.
At the left side of the card I used again a die from Noor! Design, 'Rand' 6002/0260.
Stuck a paper doily between the design papers, some bandage and a tag behind it.
The beautiful guipure lace is coming from The Ribbon Girl.
The papers are inked up with Distess Ink, 'Walnut Stain'. On the roses and everything else needed I put Stickels, 'Star Dust'.
A lot of the materials I used are coming from 'HobbyVision', a lovely craft shop with super friendly customer service.
And at least some flat back pearls and rhinestones from The Hobbyhouse. And there is my finished Vintage Card!
I hope you like it. Thanks a lot for passing by and see you hopefully back soon again. Have a nice day!

Happy Birthday

Hello to everybody! Back again today with a new card. This time it is a Vintage one. I do love Vintage a lot. You always work with the soft colors. And I love my pinks as well.
The picture on the card I got somewhere from the internet. There a so many beautiful old Vintage pictures on the internet.
I matted the picture on white card stock cut out with a Classic Rectangle Nestabilitie.
The sentiment stamp comes from Lili of the Valley, set 58 'Pretty Grungy - Good Times'.
The designer papers I used are also from Lili of the Valley from the paper pad 'Always & Forever', but I think they discontinued the paper pads.
At the top of the card I used a die from Noor! Design, 'Rand Franse Lelie' 6002/0256. The embossed part I inked up with Distress Ink, 'Walnut Stain'.
The flowers and roses are, as usual, from Wild Orchid Crafts. The pink Vintage Seam Binding also comes from them.
The little leafs are a die from Noor! Design, 'Vintage Leaf 1'. The pink swirl is a Doohickey from Magnolia, 'Heart Swirl'.
Attached to one rose is a charm from the Ribbon Girls.
And on top of the bow from the Seam Binding I put a brad from The Hobbyhouse. I clipped the legs of so I could glue it with Arleene's Tacky Glue.
At the other side of the card I shoved a little heart from pink card stock underneath the photo. The heart is a old die from Sizzix.
The little butterfly is a punch from Martha Stewart, 'Royal Butterfly'. It is a old punch but I still love to use it much because it is so delicate. 
The inside of the card I also decorated. For that I used a Nestabilitie, Labels nr. 4.
And on the small edge of card stock and paper I made a edge with a edger punch of Martha Stewart, 'Doily Lace'.
To finish the card I used lace witch I bought at the market in my hometown. I stapled it to the card stock. Al the papers I inked up with Distress Ink, 'Walnut Stain'. To make it a bit more Vintage-like I put a little bit of DecoArt White Crackle Paint on the papers.
Also used a little tag on the left side and a paper doily on the right.
Flowers, butterflies and everything needed put Stickels, 'Star Dust' on it. And used some flat back pearls and rhinestones.
I do hope you like this card again. Thanks a lot for visiting and if you leave a comment that would be so nice! Have a lovely day and see so soon.

Best Wishes

Goodday ladies, my second post for today and as promised another card with the little fairy from Marianne Design, Creatable-LR0323 Fairy Star.
And the card itself is again a black one and as for the color I choose one of my favourite colours, purple. It is only that it is hard to make photo's from it, because purple doesn't show oké on pictures. It always looks a little bleak an I can assure you that the papers I used, are real deep violet/purple. Also I have a new camera and I have to get used with it to make nice pictures.
So the paper pad I used is from a Polish company called Galeria Papieru and this paper pad is called 'Purple Violets'. I love it!
You cannot see it so good, but in the left corner I used a sentiment stamp from Lili of the Valley.
All the flowers and roses used on the card are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Underneath the flowers I used a branch die from Joy! Crafts, Vintage Flourishes, Leaf 2. Further I used some little violet stamens between the roses and I attached a charm to it. The charm is coming from the Ribbon Girl. Also the black Vintage Seam Binding is coming from the Ribbon Girl.
The flag die is a really old one from Marianne Design. I have it already for ages and it is hardly used and that's a shame. The rub-on letters are from Doodlebug. The flag line I 'attached' with black Scrappers Floss and made 2 tiny bows.
Behind the design papers I put a black doily. Bought them ones on E-Bay.
At the top of the card I used the 'Vlinderrand' die from Joy! Crafts, Noor! Design. I cut it out of the designer paper.
Under this flower arrangent at the right side I used a swirl die from Memory Box. I love this one because it is so delicate and if you don't want the whole scroll you can cut it in two. At the right side I also put a Rhinestone Sparkle from The Hobbyhouse.
At the right side of the card I put a tag underneath the papers. It is a black tag from Inkssentials. The swirls stamped at the side is a stamp from Unique. The butterfly and sentiment stamp coming from a stamp set from Darsie's. I embossed everything with white embossing powder from Stampendous and heated it with a heat tool. At the top of the tag Violet Vintage Seam Binding and a bow from black Scrappers Floss with a little purple button from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The inside of the card I decorated also. Just simple but I have to put some in it to make the card look finished. I used Nestabilities Deckled Edge Classic Ovals and a normal Classic Oval.
The corners are a die from Quickutz.
For the finishing off I used on my papers Distress Ink 'Black Soot'. On the flowers, butterflies and fairy Stickels, 'Star Dust'. The little rhinestones are also from The Hobbyhouse. Love all the bling-bling.
Well, that was it for today ladies. Hope you like this card as much as I do. Thanks for visiting and watching and see you soon again. Then I hope to show you a Vintage card. Have a nice day.

Happy Birthday

Final back into card making again. It took me quit a while because of various reasons. But I'm happy to be back and still loving it!
For my first card this year I didn't use a coloured stamp or anything but a die from Marianne Design. It is a Creatable-LR0323 Fairy Star and already an old one, but the moment I saw it I knew what to make with it. And it is so suitable for making cards with black card stock because the little fairy is coming out perfectly in black.
The paper pad I used is from Kaisercraft, 'Fairy Dust', how convenient, lol.  A beautiful paper pad in the colors silver, teal/green and purple. The sentiments used on the outside and inside of the card are also coming from this paper pad. So for now, no stamping at all.
I matted the fairy on designpaper and card stock cut out with a die from Crealies, Crea-Lies-Nest XXL nr. 24, Stitched Rectangle.
On the wings of the fairy I put Stickels, 'Star Dust'.
The sentiment is matted on a Scalloped Round Nestabilitie.
The flowers used are coming from Wild Orchid Crafts. So does the black stamens and the metallic silver corner.
The Ivy is a die from Creative Expressions, 'Trailing Ivy'. It cuts out beautiful!

The black card stock and the little fiary are both glued with some adhesive foam blocks to give the card a more dimensional view.
The inside of the card I decorated accordingly. For that I used again my Crealies dies and for the edge an old punch from Martha Stewart.
The corner is a die from Cuttlebug.
The ribbon on the card I had already a long, long time. And looking over my stash I came across it and it matched perfectly with the black and silver and the greenish sequins.
On top of my card I used a die from Joy! Crafts. The butterflies are dies from Cheery Linn and Die-Namics.
For the rest used Stickels, 'Star Dust' on the flowers and butterflies, some teal rhinestones and a bow from black Scrappers Flos. The papers I inked with Distress Ink, 'Black Soot'.
That was it for now ladies. My first card for 2016! And maybe today a new post with another card with this beautiful little fairy.
Thanks for stopping by and watching.
