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:

LaviniaBubble

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:

ATConCard_Bubble

 

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

You don’t need to be a fairy …

Daring Cardmakers wants us to be inspired by fairy tales and Stampootique challenges us to create a textured background. Here’s my entry:

GessoCrayonsTechniek_VoorAli

I created this textured background with gesso and used wax crayons to apply colour. I rubbed silver ink on the raised parts of the gesso, but unfortunately that’s not very obvious on scan. I really like this Dutch sentiment: in English it reads ‘You don’t need to be a fairy to perform miracles’.

Stamps used

  • Girl+sentiment:  Inkerbell stamps
  • Circles: Stampers Anonymous
  • Stars: Lavinia
  • Twig: Inkadinkado

 

Puzzle your stamps

Tick tock, it’s time to share another card with you!

PuzzleYourStampsI created this card for a ‘Puzzle your stamps’ swap. Just stamp a variety of images, cut them into pieces and puzzle them together in order to create an imaginary character: it’s great fun and you’ll be amazed at the result!
