Number of the beast

Currently ‘Haunted Design House’ is celebrating its milestone of reaching 666 followers and I really wanted to join the party. They chose the Iron Maiden song ‘Number of the beast’ as their theme for this fortnight’s challenge. I really had to wreck my brain, but last night I finally came up with an idea!

Here’s my interactive  house shaped ATC :

World Cup 2014

Lots of guys are currently under the spell of soccer. Everywhere in the country people assemble to watch the game together and hope for a victory so as to be able to indulge in celebrations.

I made this clean and simple card for a guy who totally loves soccer:

WK2014

At this very moment, Belgium is playing against Algeria, but, to be honest, things don’t look too good for us. Let’s hope the Red Devils will be able to get their act together and score, for otherwise my card will have been to no avail and there will be no celebrations at all…

I’d like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Stamps used

  • Monsters: Stampotique
  • Scratches: Stampers Anonymous

EDIT:

The Belgian Red Devils did manage to win after all! 1-2 for Belgium. :-)

Spooky Lavinia card

Two weeks ago I attended a workshop @ In ‘t woefke. The purpose was to create fairylike cards using Lavinia stamps, but I felt like creating a spooky card too:

All stamps are by Lavinia, except for the sentiment, which is Stampendous.

I only had used this card size (100 x210 mm) a handful of times before, but I actually really like it, so I’m pretty sure I will use it more often in the future.

This is my entry for the following challenges:

 

 

Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble

Haunted Design House offered us an interesting recipe with the following 5 ingredients: black, purple, green, metal and flourish.

Here’s what I brewed in my cauldron:

I mounted a green bubble background ATC on a black and purple card featuring clear embossed flourishes. My metal ingredient consists of a silver heat embossed pentagram. Sorry for the bad scan, in real life the green ‘s got a bit more punch and the pink is actually neon pink.

Stamps used

  • Witch:  Gaïa
  • Cauldron & mouse: Cherry Pie
  • Bats: Stampers Anonymous
  • Pentagram: Make your mark
  • Bubble sentiment: Stampendous
