4 Crafty Chicks Challenge - Blue Christmas

Good day to every body. I have a new post for you.
Sadly with a lot of delay because my internet, again, was not working. This time it was a problem with cut cables somewhere.
But oké, this is the new card for the blog of the 4 Crafty Chicks.

The theme for this week is: Blue Christmas.

I do love blue Christmas cards. And luckily there is a lot of papers with blue in it from which you can choose.
This time a made a Vintage style card. I used a picture from a push out decoupage paper from Studio Light. It is a real Holland scene.
The papers I used are from Bo Bunny. Behind the papers I put a paper doily.
I used a die from Noor! Design and a edge punch from Martha Stewart.
The little tags are sentiment stamps from Lili of the Valley.
On the big tags I used other stamps. And so here and there I also used a snowflake stamp from Magnolia.
The ribbons, flat back pearls, twine and little bells are from my stash.
The flowers and the Vintage Seam Binding are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The leafs behind the flowers are two different dies from Magnolia.
The inside of the card I also decorated. For that I used a die from Crealies to make a rectangle. The skates are a die from Noor! Design. The embossed parts I inked up with Distress Ink, "Walnut Stain".
I do hope you like this card again. If you like visit the Challenge Blog of the 4 Crafty Chicks and take a look at all the beautiful examples the ladies made. And of course you can play along if you like so you get in time with your Christmas Cards!
Thanks every body for visiting my blog and see you next week.

Challenge 4 Crafty Chicks - Summer Celebrations

Good day to every body. First of all, thanks every body for visiting my blog and leaving such nice comments.
I hope you all had a nice week. Over here in Luxor it is very hot. I also had a lot of internet problems. Hardly no connection or so little that you could do almost nothing. Were I live it is very rural. Nobody has a telephone line, so my internet is not coming from a land line. I get my connection from a device on my roof who picks it up out of the air. And that makes my connection very unstable and super slow at some times. Especially in the evening when internet is busy.

But coming back to my new card. This one is for the new Challenge over at the 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge Blog.

The theme is week is: Summer Celebrations

That's a nice and I think easy Challenge. So for this one I choose a digi stamp from Lili of the Valley, "Summer Girl". I coloured her up with my Copic Markers.
The sentiment is also coming from a set of sentiment stamps from Lili of the Valley. I cut it out with a round Nestabilitie and then matted it on a round circle made with a nestabilitie "Lacey Circles".
The papers used coming from a paper pad from Kaisercraft, "Chanteuse Collection". The papers are inked up with Distress Ink, "Walnut Stain".
Behind the papers I used a paper doily.
The scroll is made with a die from Memory Box, "Elegant Scrollwork".
I made an edge with an edge punch of Martha Stewart, "Doily Lace".
The big butterfly is a die from Cheery Lynn; the small butterflies a die from Die-Namics.
The flowers and Vintage Seam Binding are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
On the flowers I put some Stickels, "Star Dust".
The ribbon and flat back pearls are coming from my stash.
Well, that was it for my card.
I do hope you all visit the blog of the 4 Crafty Chicks and take a look at the great examples the other ladies made for you. And if you like play along with this nice Challenge.
For now, thanks for passing by and hope to see you soon again!

1th Post for the 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge Blog

Good day every body. Today I'm back with a new card. It is with delay because my internet is working so bad the last few weeks.
But ... I was asked as a Guest Designer from the Ladies from the 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge Blog! How cool is that! So for the month July I will participate and make examples for their Challenge Blog. Love it!
And this is my first card for their Blog.

The theme this week is: Use a Stamp (not a digi!).

So for this card I digged through my old stamps. I still have a lot but hardly use them any more.
And I thought, oke, use this old one. I still find it very beautiful and it is great for male cards.
And with my brother in the back of head I got of colouring. He has an garage and is restoring old Classic American cars, especially Cadillac. He owns himself also 4 Classic Cadillacs and one of them is a big black one with those big red tail lights and lots of chrome.
This stamp is from Stamps Happen and is called "Classic". Lol!
I coloured it up with my Copics. I do had a hard time to give the chrome a little bit a real chrome look. For that I used a ton of Copics. But I think the outcome is acceptable.
The sentiment on the front of the card is from Lili of the Valley. The inside sentiment stamp is from a set from ScrapBerry's, "Auto Vintage". Also that little gear stamp used on the front is part of this set.
The papers coming from a paper pad from Kaisercraft, "Black and White Timeless", and how great! One of the papers has a hint of red on it. I inked all the papers up with Distress Ink, "Pumice Stone".
The big gear edge is made with a die from Noor! Design, 6002/0288.
The small gears are from Sizzixs. After cutting them out, I inked them up with Embossing Ink and covered them with "Aged Taupe Embossing Enamel" from Stampendous and heated it with my heat gun.
On the red tail light I put some Glossy Accents so it makes it really shiny! It does not show so good on the pictures but in real it looks great.
The twine and split pins are from my stash.
The inside I decorated also. For that I used a cut out rectangle made with a die from CreaLies. And I fussy cut some of the play cards from the paper out of the paper pad and put that behind the rectangle.
So, that was it for today. I do hope you like my example card. I would say, run over to the blog of the 4 Crafty Chicks and check out the other great examples the DT Ladies made for this great Challenge.
Wishing you a nice day and hope to see you back soon. And before I forget, as always, thanks for visiting my blog!
