“Lighten Up”

Today I would like to share a new image called
“Lighten Up!” from the Intro price set of 2 digital stamps.

I love this image….well.. because it reminds me a bit of … ME!

I’ve colored her up with distress inks.
I made the backingpapers myself with distress inks and
a new stencil (the one with the dots).

I also used some scrap papers with my distress backings to make
a flower and leaves.
I fuzzy cutted the image, and added the image with some 3-d foam to
give it some extra dimension.
The purple gems gives it a little touch of purple magic.

Take a look on the FB group where you can find a lot
of inspirations from the DT from the blog but also from
the DT from the FB group.
They also have a monthly challenge going on…

“Sunflower Night Autumn” in monochrome color theme

Hello everyone!

Today I want to share with you a monochrome themed

card for the Ching-Chou Kuik’s Digital Stamps Inspiration/Challenge Blog
We all make a monochrome themed card with a family of colors.

I did mine with blues/purples.
I colored with distress inks.
And the fun thing with distress inks, is that once you add
water to your project, it will change color.
Funny eh?

This is Sunflower Night Autumn


I made a tri-fold card with a open window in it.
I thought it would be fun to create this card.

I embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder.

Here is a close up of the coloring with distress inks.


I hope you enjoyed my inspiration for this week.

Check out the inspiration/challenge blog for the current challenge and take a
look at the showcases from our lovely customers/creators.

We also have a monthly challenge at Ching-Chou Kuik’s Digital Stamps FB-group
You can join, and also add one of your creations with the gorgeous stamps.

Hope to see you next time!
Big hugs,

Inspirational Post “Carnation Fairy”

Hello there!

We start this month with our new challenge “Something New”
And therefore I’ve made a new Agenda…we have to
start each year with a new agenda…right?

Well, this one is called “Carnation Fairy”

I’ve colored her in with Distress inks.
Ofcourse in my favourite colors, purples and some blue.
The background paper is made with distress inks and stencils.
I know I use that a lot, but hey ho… it is my thingy eh?

So…now with every appointment I have to make, I can look into
my own costumized agenda… Yay!

I hope you have a crafty day today!
See you next time!

Big hugs,


Inspiratie post voor CreaMiep

Hallo allemaal!

Het nieuwe jaar is weer begonnen… dus weer een frisse inspiratie post van mij!
Allereerst.. ik wens jullie een heel fijn, creatief en kleurrijk nieuwjaar toe.

Vandaag wil ik een simpel kaartje met jullie delen.

Ik heb een digitale stempelafdruk ingekleurd met Distress Inkt.
Vervolgens heb ik het afdrukje rondom uitgeknipt.
Ik wilde het afdrukje naar voren laten poppen, en 3-dimensionaal opplakken.

Ik heb een stukje designpapier een beetje opgepimpt met
de stencil van Dutch Doobadoo Stencil Mask.
Dit geeft net het beetje extra aan je design.
Ik heb dit met distress inkt gedaan, maar je
kunt dit natuurlijk ook met een structuur pasta doen.
Het is net wat je mooi vindt.

Het is een lief klein kaartje geworden dat door de simpele design toch
wel weer iets bijzonders is.
Voornamelijk komt dit natuurlijk ook door het mooie afdrukje.
Je vindt trouwens ook nog mooie stempels in deze
sfeer in de webwinkel van CreaMiep.
Neem eens een kijkje… en wie weet.. laat jij ook eens een bijzonder kaartje zien
op onze CreaMiep FB-groep.

Ik zie jullie de volgende keer weer!

Groetjes Sylvia
