Mustache Card

Good Morning Everyone,

Want to share with you my card for this Wonderful Wednesday. I have seen this card on Pinterest and thought it would make a great male card, for any occasion. Most of the cards that I have seen are made with different punches. I didn't have all the punches, so I made it on my silhouette. It was fun and quick to do.





So I hope you will join me this coming Wonderful Wednesday. 
Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Hello, friend!


Happy Friday! A while ago I saw this techmique and card done on the Altenew blog and I loved it.
So I tried to make it, the Altenew Lacey scroll stamp is stamped in a light memento ink (any dye ink would do) then I went back with some Prismacolor pencils to add details and shading. It took a while but it was very relaxing and the flowers really came alive.
Mr. Blogger is giving me a hard time...or the crappy internet (bonus of  living in the country) we have, so I hope this post will go up as I planned it.
                                   Hope you have a great day, till next time, Anja

Vacation Kit

Good morning, everyone. Last week I showed you a kit that I had designed for the store using the Carta Bella "Old World Collection" papers. This week I am showing you another kit that I created which focuses more on the blue papers in the collection. I created the title "Vacation" on my Silhouette and added some of the stickers from the Sticker Sheet which accompanies the papers. I also added the metal heart from the Prima Grunge Heart Embellishments and stamped and cut out the clocks using the Vintage Clock Dies and Stamps from Kaisercraft.


Have a great week!

Happy Anniversary Card

Good Morning Everyone,

Want to share with you my card for this up coming Wonderful Wednesday. This card is a Judy Kennedy design but my take on it. We did this card yesterday with a group of ladies in Chatham. It was a great day. I had lots of kits left over so I thought this would make a great Wonderful Wednesday Card. There are some steps and some painting but you will learn lots from making this card.  I used the new Prima acrylic paint to paint the flowers and leaves. The dies are from Frantic Stampers, Happy Anniversary and With This Kiss Couple. The flowers and leaves are from Creative Expressions, Petite Peony Cluster. To make the circle in the middle I used the MFT circles die and the  memory box scallop edge circle die,






 Hope to see you on Wednesday. 
Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Shimmer, color burst and Penny Black~


Happy Friday! I am excited to share this card with you today....it turned out how I pictured it in my head...early this morning, lol. Last night I worked on it, not good so I threw it out and went back at it this morning.
Anyhow, I started with a piece of watercolour paper (any kind will do) and sprinkled some sepia color burst on and put a few dots of the liquid metal (shake it before you use it) and then I sprayed it with water till I got a nice looking background.
Let it dry! Then ooh and ah over the lovely shimmery background!! It's hard to see in the picture but it's really there!
Then I got my MISTI out, this is the tool that is gonna make your stamping easy!! I put my watercolour piece in place, positioned this PENNY BLACK stamp and put a layer of spiced marmelade on the flower part of the stamp, and stamped the first time. Then I put a good layer of aged mahagony on the flower part and with my gathered twigs marker I did the stem and leaves. I gave it a bit water with the mini mister and stamped. Here is the good news: with the MISTI YOU WILL STAMP IN THE SAME PLACE!!!
I let it dry and lost quite a bit of detail due to the water so I inked up the flower part again with aged mahagony and even the leaves with the marker and stamped again!! Yup, with the MISTI I am able to do that in the same place!!I put a little bit of gold fine tip marker in the center of the flower and voila!!
Little tip from me....I position the paper in the misti and then I secure it with a piece of painters tape, so far I am not so lucky with the magnets, that could be me but this seems to work for me!
                                        Happy crafting! Till next time, Anja
