Recht uit het hart

Dear friends,
Last Wednesday I had a workshop with Minke Brattinga, one of our collegue demo's and together with a wonderful group of ladies we made these gorgeous cards. I love the Dutch themed look, a bit like our Delfts Bleu. The stampset used is the Dutch translated set Recht uit het Hart, translated Straight from the Heart. I love the sayings and the sophisticated look. The colors and paper inspired me so much that this weekend I will do some experimenting again with the paperstack.
Lieve vrienden,
Afgelopen woensdag heb ik een workshop gedaan bij Minke Brattinga, een van onze getalenteerde collega demo's en samen hebben we deze prachtige kaarten gemaakt. De stempelset die we gebruikt hebben is de Nederlandse set Recht uit het Hart. Door de wit/blauwe combinatie doen ze me denken aan het thema Holland en geeft de kaarten een sjieke uitstraling. De kaarten inspireren me enorm dus dit weekend wederom aan de slag met deze mooie papierlijn. Onderaan mijn blog vind je alle materialen die gebruikt zijn.

The Beauty of Simplicity

Hi all! Its the day after my 46th birthday, a lazy Sunday, I cleaned up the house and went through all the lovely presents and cards I received, I felt really spoiled by my friends and family. It was a great day! Today I decided to make three simple cards but with and sophisticated look.

I used Wishper White paper as a basis on top of cardstock colors; Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron and Island Indio. The envelops are made with the Envelop Punch Board, paper size 5"x 5"scored at 2".

The insert cards I stamped  with Basic Black ink and stampset Layering Love. The little sentiment on the heart (Sweetheart punch)  is from the hostess set Love you Lots. I added some black wire and a feather to give the card an extra touch. Would you like to make these cards yourself? Please find below all materials I used. I would love to hear your comments here below!

I hope you liked today's post, wishing you a lovely Sunday,

Floral Boutique

Dear Friends,

Last month Stampin'Up created a special Facebook page where Demonstrators from all over the world could join the group and exchange idea's for Party's. Since that day I met so many wonderful people from all over the world that I decided to post some of my blogspost in the English language. Today my box with new stampsets arrived so I couldn't wait to get started. The Floral Boutique stampset is absolutly my favorite set from this catalogue and in combination with the Bermuday Bay and Early Expresso cardstock I created this lovely cardset.

Here a detail picture of the flowers and leaves. I just love the Floral Thinlit dies! Can you imagine what you can do with these? I have so many creative idea's I can hardly sleep! :)

What do you think of the banner? I stamped the text as I was inspired by the  Stampin'Up Designer cardstock. I think turned out real nice!

Tempting Turquoise water color card

As water coloring is one of my other favorite hobby's I decided to play with Tempting Turquoise today. The basic card is Water Color Paper on a base of Sahara Sand cardstock. Make sure you wet your paper first before adding the ink. Let your paper air dry. For the flowers I used the Blooms & Wishes stampset.

Aquarellen is mijn andere favoriete hobby dus vandaag een kaartje waarmee ik geexperimenteerd heb met de kleur Tempting Turquoise. De basis van de kaart is aquarel papier op een kaart van de kleur Sahara Sand. Zorg er voor dat je papier goed nat is voordat je de kleur blauw opzet. Laat de kaart aan de lucht drogen. De bloemen komen uit de mooise set Blooms & Whishes.

Add your favorite embellishments. The metallic thread is so deligate, I LOVE it! The text stamp is from the set Floral Phrases and the sports from the set Painters Palette.
Met een paar embellishments maak je je kaartje af. Het metaal draad is zo verfijnd, ik vind het prachtig! De tekst stempels is van de set Floral Phrases en de spetters uit Painters Palette.
