Valentine's Day card

A few weeks ago I purchased a cool cut file in the Silhouette Design Store (244444) so I wanted to create another Valentine's Day card with it.

I don't have lots love/valentine/heart stamps so for the sentiment I decided to search for a cool font on Dafont that would fit this card. I used the Lovelique font and it's actually a free one. The word You is just Arial.

So this is my card I want to share at Addicted to Stamps and More challenge #325 and it's actually my second card I share at SSS Wednesday Challenge - Have a heart.

Let it rain hearts

Today I made a Valentine's day card for the Simon Says Stamp wednesday challenge and Uniko Challenge #51.

You let it rain hearts


I thought the 'Jij laat het hartjes regenen' stamp from Karin Joan which means 'You let it rain hearts' would be perfect for this. I searched my stash for small heart stamps and this card was finished pretty quickly.


Supplies
- Karin Joan - Hartjes regen
- Memento - Love Letter
- Verafine Black ink
- SSS - Cocoa and love

Freshly Made Sketches #372

It's been a long time since I used a stencil again.
For sketch #372 from Freshly Made Sketches I thought it would be nice to use the Layered Dahlia stencil from Altenew.
 
https://freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com/2019/01/freshly-made-sketches-372-sketch-by.html

First I wanted to use some warm colors but the snowy weather made me change my mind and instead I used some cold blue colors.


Thank you card with Altenew stencil and inks

I also changed the position of the sentiment stroke to the right so the flower would stand out more.

Chameleon card

For my card of today I combined sketch 421 from MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge with liftchallenge #137.

In the original stamp the chameleon is sitting on a branch but I wanted him to sit on the sentiment stroke so I cut the chameleon out by hand and placed it on top of this stroke. I think it is a cool effect :)

Using a digital stamp


For CAS(E) this Sketch #305 I was thinking some time which stamp set to use. Since I couldn't find a floral border stamp or die in my stash I searched for a digital stamp on the internet. I found one I liked from Uniko. It's actually a freebie and also my first time I used a digital stamp.


http://casethissketch.blogspot.com/2019/01/case-this-sketch-305.html


With this card I would also like to compete with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

CAS(E) this Sketch #304

For CAS(E) this Sketch #304 I made a pretty quick one layer card today.

http://casethissketch.blogspot.com/2019/01/case-this-sketch-304.html

I used the Altenew Halftone squares stamp set with Altenew Dew Drops and Aqualicious.
Next I stamped the sentiment 'Hiep Hiep Hoera' with Altenew Pure Graphite and used clear embossing powder on top.
For the 'Gefeliciteerd' sentiment I wanted to use a lighter gray so I stamped this with Industrial Diamond and also used clear embossing powder on top of it.
Actually both sentiments look quite the same so I could have used just one color.

Altenew Halftone Squares

Finally I used the Basic Stripes stamp set from SSS with Silver Stone to create a border around the halftones and added some Nuvo Drops to add something extra.

Supplies
- Altenew - Halftone squares
- HP 75f
- Altenew ink:
          - Dew Drops

CAS(E) this Sketch #303


It's been a long time since I participated in a sketch challenge so today I thought it was time again to create a card for a challenge again.

http://casethissketch.blogspot.com/2019/01/case-this-sketch-303.html

Happy birthday card

I first stamped the flower in some blue colors from Altenew and cut it out by hand. For the leaves I used Altenew Bamboo and also cut them out by hand.

Next I used some removable tape to create a rectangle in the middle of the card where I stamped the wooden background with Toffee Crunch from Memento.


Happy birthday card

For the sentiment I used a stamp set from Winnie & Walter and stamped the word 'happy' with Versafine black ink. The word 'birthday' is stamped on a strip of black cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

The flowers and the leaves are adhered with foam squares to give them some dimension. And finally I also stamped 2 hearts from the Winnie & Walter stamp set with Altenew Dusk and used Nuvo crystal glaze to let them shine.

Supplies
- Altenew - Floral Art
- Altenew - Wood pallet background
