Beautiful 50

Hi there!

Just a very quick hello to share a card for a friend on her 50th birthday, which she celebrates... today!



A closer look:


I used the very popular and loved by all Beautiful-day stamp set, with a personalized birthday sentiment in Afrikaans as well as a Silhouette cut 50.

CAS(e) this sketch # 219

Hi there!

Time for a new sketch at CAS(e) this sketch !




Jen came up with a fabulous CAS layout for this week :)




A closer look:


A very quick card for today, designed in the silhouette studio using hand hearts Design ID #72698.
I cut the heart hands 3 times, and layered it to add dimension.

I added a little striped banner created with the fill option of the studio and my own sentiment.

Enamel dots to finish off the design.

21 Today!

Hi there!

Today is the birthday of our youngest daughter, and yes, it's official, she's all grown up.

                                                                            * TWENTY ONE today!  *

She will be home on Saturday and for the first time in a long time our family of 4 will be together in ONE country , under ONE roof! So excited!

This is the card I made for her birthday :



Up close:



She loves stripes, so I went with for a fresh & modern graphic look.

I designed the BG in the Silhouette studio, cut it from pink and navy card stock with my cameo and adhered it to the card base.

As focal point, I choose to combine the 21 (cut with my cameo) with a beautiful flower from the Mon-ami set by Casual Friday stamps.

The misti makes this kind of double stamping just so much easier!

I added 5 rhinestones to complete the design.

Really happy to say this looks just the way I envisioned!

CASology : Season

Hi there!

Time for a new cue card and design inspiration at CASology !

                                                                 

With Uniko Studio being our sponsor this week, I picked a pretty cosmos  flower from Pure Florals Cosmos and  a leaf from the Natures Treasures set to create my inspiration card for today.



A different angle:


I colored the flowers with my Zigs, and added my own sentiment, scripture from Ecclesiastes which refers to the different seasons in our lives.

As always I saved it for your personal use:




Name of font used : Written on His hands.

Best Wishes

Hi there!

Yesterday , while waiting for our eldest daughter to arrive for a !!! month's !!! visit, I had to keep busy to make the time go faster !

So I decided to create a card for the current Fusion card challenge where they have an amazing inspiration photo. My card is quite a literal take on the photo, also using the sketch provided, just flipped it upside down.

                                                                  

My card:


A closer look:



For my window, I used 2 chevrons, cut from a lighter and darker grey card stock. I used the same concept for a masculine birthday card HERE.

I had a specific image in mind, and because I don't have it in a stamp form, I did a quick online search for flower bouquets coloring pages. I opened the image I found in the Silhouette studio, traced it and did the fussy cutting with my cameo.

I water colored the bouquet with my Zigmarkers.

The sentiment is a digital stamp, using the font Always in my heart.

A beautiful day!

Hi there!

The inspiration photo at The card concept shouts SPRING! I am sure you will agree.

So inspiring!


                                                      


Some of the smaller stamps from sets often get neglected (by me), but from the first moment I saw this picture, I knew I wanted to use one of those neglected stamps to create a card for this week's challenge.


Altenew beautiful day

From another angle:

Altenew beautiful day

The stamp I used is from the Beautiful day set by Altenew, and even though I have used this set a couple of times before, I have never inked up this lovely little branch with flowers.

I started of by doing light blue water color smooshing, using my Zigs, and then stamped the image several times to create the background. I then colored the leaves and flower centers , also using my Zigs.

The butterflies were cut with my Silhouette, and they also got smooshed with watercolor.
After it dried, I stamped the black dots (one of the small accent stamps from Springtime azalea stamp set)

Black ink : Versafine Onyx black.

CAS(e) this sketch # 218

Hi there!

Thursday... and it is CAS(e) this sketch day on my blog!




My take on the sketch looks like this:


And another angle:


This fabulous lady is a digital design by Hero Arts and you can find her in the Silhouette store :
Design ID #30907.

I added a strip of small B&W polka dots pattern and created my own sentiment in the Silhouette studio.

Short and sweet today!

Hope to see you in the CAS(e) this sketch gallery this week!
