News - PS Sparks challenge

Hello, I'm playing in this fun Paper Smooches Sparks challenge. This is the cool inspiration picture:

And this is my take:

The buttons are glossy and the blue tv is popped up for dimension...
I used my Paper Smooches set called "Boob Tubes". This is such a cute set! I love all the vintage cuteness :)
Thanks for looking!

You are my everything - TAWS Be inspired #35

Hello, I made some time to play along in this fun TAWS challenge
I was inspired by the colors white, black, green...but I could not resist to use red on the hearts. They are glossy too :)
Also - the calendar on the picture has this office look, so I used a paper clip to hold the sweet note.

Lawnscaping Challenge # 64

Hello, happy monday :) ! Time for a new Lawnscaping Challenge. This time it's all about distressing. Use any distress products of your choice...distress ink, distress stain, markers, it all! 
This fun challenge is sponsored by awesome Lawn Fawn. You can win a stamp let's distress it up! 


For my card I used distress stains for the background and on the little birds. On the houses I used  distress ink. I even stamped the fence ("Happy haunting") with distress ink. 

Distressed background, birds, clouds and houses

The sky is the limit

Hello, I'm playing in this fun Paper Smooches Sparks challenge. Had to play because in the sketch were clouds :) I just love clouds on my projects! 
I used my Paper Smooches set called "Sunny side up".  For the backgrounds I went wild with distress stains. So fun! The umbrella is paper pieced and on the handle and tip I used glossy accents. The little flags are cut from vellum. Oh....almost forgot to mention my felt clouds :D

Thanks for looking!

Cloudy ride

Hello, how do you like my cloudy balloon ride? I used felt for two clouds and vellum for the other two. My blue bird is hanging out on the word "air" and the middle part of the balloon is popped up.
For the background I played with my distress stain :)

I'm playing in this fun TAWS challenge and I used a retrosketch. 

Thank you for looking!

Trying to use it all...

Hello, welcome to my little blog. I'm playing in this fun challenge at the sweet stamp shop blog called "Use what you have".

I just love the idea to take a picture and use what's on my desk. Since other stamps than sweet stamps are allowed I used my stamps of life (I almost never do *blush*) and paper from my messy stash that I keep on my desk. It's actually a little pile...

And I had some cute clouds already cut from an other project (looove clouds) :

So here is my card. All the paper used for this card came from my already cut stash! This one is for my mother in law. Yes, late as always ;)

Thank you very much for peeking! Have a great day!

Lawnscaping Challenge #63

Hello, happy August! This fun challenge is a real challenge because it's ONE layer only! It's hard not to reach for patterned paper, foam tape or dots, dies or even twine. I took a picture with twine, but then took it off to have a real one layer card :)) 
(Note to self: Get some ink sprays to create backgrounds for one layer cards!)
My whales were also inspired by the adorable whale that my daughter Sarah (13) sewed all by herself.
So, grab your cardstock and play along in this fun challenge

We are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp! The lucky winner will get a $25 gift certificate!
