April showers

Have been trying some new techniques with my Silhouette. Here I tried making a background using words and the sketch pens, together with a stamp from Mama Elephant's Up and Away and a stamp from Penny Black Garden which were colored with Copics. Ribbon and jewels from my stash.

Velveteen stamping

What a great stamping technique they showed us on Online Card Classes.
Instead of a card, I made a picture for my colleague. You can see on the close up  how the velveteen techniques makes it seem like the cat has stripes.

Still More backgrounds


Making backgrounds

I am taking a great online card class (www.onlinecardclasses.com). One class was dedicated to making backgrounds so I did some experimenting stamping with clear gesso, white gesso, and embossing paste. Here are some of the results.

New Year's Eve project

I wanted my guests to have a special present for New Year's Eve so I made etched glasses for each one. That way they could use their own glass all evening long and then take it home as a gift.
Made with various fonts on my SIL and the Glass Etching Starter Kit. This was the first time I have done glass etching and was relatively pleased with the results.

Bow It All

I just love my new Bow It All from Zutter which I recently purchased.
It makes teensy-weensy bows and huge ones. Pefect, every time.

this Christmas pin measures 4 cm.

This is one of my Christmas cards from last year. Not fast to replicate however because of the coloring and fussy cutting.

Feeling Orange

Maybe it's fall, maybe because I work with so many Dutch people, but I like using the color orange in this period...Or is it Halloween????

Fall

I spent ages on this card--and it alas does not show. Am not pleased. :(
It does not somehow fit together.

I wanted to use the small pumpkin stamp I have and combine it with the small cat stamp. (love that little guy) Found both of them at a street fair. They are strange stamps because they have velcro on the back. Have never seen them anywhere else.
