Valentine Pocket Letter for More Mixed Media

Hello peeps,

Today I want to share a Pocket Letter in the theme Valentine.

I fell in love with the stamps of My Favorite Things

Cat-ittude with the dies.

So I used them to create a Mixed Media Pocket Letter

for More Mixed Media Challenge Blog.

This time we all add the color RED in our project.

I have colored the little cats in with distress inkt.

I made the papers with distress inkt and modeling paste mixed with aqrylic paint.

I used several printed designpapers and some homemade enamel dots.

I hope you will join us for this challenge.

Let’s have fun and get messy crafty!

You can find the FB group over here:

See you next time!

“Hello”

Hallo allemaal,

Vandaag deel ik een lief en simpel CAS-kaartje met jullie.
CAS betekend Clean And Simple.

Ik heb het poesje ingekleurd met Distress Inkt.
Dit poesje heb ik vervolgens uitgeknipt en met foampads
3-D opgeplakt zodat ze een beetje naar voren komt.

Ik heb er een shakercard van gemaakt.
Het papier uitgesneden en bewerkt met distress spetters
met behulp van een penseel.
Daarna natuurlijk (voor de mensen die mij kennen )
bewerkt met stencils van Dutch Doobadoo Stencil Mask.

Hier en daar een bling bling sequin opgeplakt.
Een touwtje voor iets extra’s (tja..een kat moet
toch ergens mee spelen he ).

Ik hoop jullie vandaag weer voldoende geïnspireerd te hebben.
Neem eens een kijkje in de webwinkel van CreaMiep Design
voor mooie materialen.

We hebben ook een FB groep waar jij je kaarten of andere
projecten kunt laten zien die jij met de materialen
van CreaMiep hebt gemaakt.
Deze kun je hier vinden:

Tot de volgende keer!
Groetjes Sylvia

“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.

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

Hello dear crafters,

I wanted to make a real natural card with mossy and brownish colors.
I colored the digital stamp with distress inks.
And I fuzzy cut the image so it would pop on the card.
The background papers is once again made with aquarelle papers
and distress inks.
I added some brownish snowflakes for the dimension.

I hope you enjoy her.

“Key of Love” Inspiration Post for Ching-Chou Kuik’s Digital Stamps

Hello everybody,

Today I want to share this beautiful image
“Key of Love”

I’ve colored her with distress inks.
After I die cutted out the image, I have layerd 3 layers
of clear embossingpowder onto it.
Than I’ve added the image for about 10
minutes in the freezer.
Why?
After you have frozen the image with the layers
of embossingpowder you can make
crackles onto it.
This gives a vintage feel on the image.

I have made the backgroundpapers with
distress inks and stencil.
The flower is from Noor, and the leaves are from CreaLies Dies.
I’ve added some purple gemstones to give it a
bit of a touch of bling.

I hope you like this card.

Make sure you join the monthly challenge at
Ching-Chou Kuik’s Digital Stamps/Inspiration/Challenge Blog

There’s also a FB group where you can also join the monthly challenge
and where you can add your creation from the ETSY-STORE

Hello everybody,

Today is my turn to show you a inspirational post for Ching-Chou Kuik’s Digital Stamps/Inspiration/Challenge Blog

This is “Key to my Heart”

I’ve colored her with Promarkers and Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils.
I fuzzy cutted her out, and adhered her with 3-D foam for extra dimension on the card.

The background papers I have made with distress inks and a stencil.
I added a little string with a little key charm to give it extra character.
De dots I have made myself with plastic beads, so it is now flat.

I hope you like her.
