Beary Christmas

Hallo allemaal,

Sommige van jullie hebben het misschien gezien maar ik was een tijdje terug een van de gelukkige winnaars van de My Favorite Things Superstar Contest. De prijs was maar liefst een shopbon van 250 dollar! En jeetje ik geloof dat ik mijn winkelwagen wel 20 x in en uitgepakt heb, maar goed uiteindelijk toch een keuze kunnen maken en het pakketjes is woensdag binnen gekomen. Ik ging er meteen mee aan de slag.


Ik maakte gebruik van de schets en de kleuren challenge op het blog en maakte dit kaartje. Ik stempelde de Primitive background stempel met versamark inkt en heb het geheel geheat embost met witte embossingpoeder. Daarna ingekleurd met distress inkt en een waterpenseel. 


De scene gestempeld en gemaskerd en de lucht gemaakt met distress inkt en een witte gel pen. De rest gekleurd met copics. De tekst gestempeld en twee keer de banner gestanst er verschoven op elkaar geplakt.

Fijne dag allemaal!

Groet, Marieke

I made a double black card with the seize 14 x 14. I also used with cardstock and some designpapers from Noor! Design (6011/0302). I use the flag (6002/0277) die twice and made it a tate smaller. Then i made the sentiment (6002/0141) "Boo!" from white cardstock.


Then i took white and black cardstock also some designpapers and die cut the mushroom (6002/0317) die cut it 4 times (two black ones) and cut all three to make them look like this. Then i took a black nuvou and made the black dots on the mushroom. I took the large mushroom (6002/0333) and did the same with it. I also cut out the lantern (6002/0194) from black cardstock and colored the light onto neenah paper and adhered it behind the lantern.


With copics i colored up the digital stamp from Wee Stamps called Batty Boo. I cut it out and clued it onto a designpaper. I cut out the square die (6002/0360) from black cardstock and adhered it all together.

I decided to pimp a giftbag to a trick or tr(eat) bag. I used Dutch Doobadoo box art (470.713.007), Marianne design Die, Nuvuo drops black and clear, cheesecloth, Graphic 45 papers.


I made one box but did both sides. I first made the box itself out of black cardstock. Then cut out the designpapers for all sides.

I die cutted the oval dies twice out of black cardstock and made the white oval cardstock by hand using the inside of the die. 



I stamped both zombie girls off the set Trick or Eat and colored them up in sepia tones (E47, E44, E43, E42, E41, E40) and fussy cutted both the zombies. I attached them to the ovals with 3-d tape and then added some dots with the nuvuo drops. I stamped the sentiments one from the set Trick or Eat and one from the set Monster Mash. Behind the oval i did some cheesecloth.

Have a nice day!

Cactus trio

Hallo allemaal / Hello everybody,

Vandaag een cactus trio ;), ik maakte een kaart naar aanleiding van de Marianne Design Challenge en ik vond ze zo leuk worden dat ik er maar meteen weer drie maakte. Drie verschillende kaarten maar met de cactus in de hoofdrol. (Let op! lange blogpost ;) )



Dit was de eerste kaart die ik maakte en moest voldoen aan de opdracht gebruik twee hoofdkleuren en een "pop" van een andere kleur. Ik gebruikte de kleuren kraft en wit als hoofdkleur en de kleur groen als "pop".  Deze kaart zend ik dan ook in bij het Marianne Design Challenge Blog.

De basis is een dubbele rechthoekige kaart van 11 x 13. Daarop wit designpapier (PK 9148) van 10 x 13. Van kraft twee keer het vierkant (CR 1359) gestanst zodat het frame ontstond, deze met 3-d tape op de kaart geplakt. Vervolgens uit Neenah papier en twee kleuren groen cardstock de potten en cactussen (CR 1413) gestanst en ge-embost. De potten heb ik gekleurd met mijn copics (E47, E44, E43, E42, E41) en bewerkt met een witte gelpen. 

Alles aan elkaar vastgemaakt en met 3-d tape op het frame geplakt. De tekst (CS 0987) gestempeld en als laatste plakte ik wat enemal dots 
(PL 4501, PL 4502 en PL 4513).


Het tweede kaartje startte eigenlijk hetzelfde als de eerste alleen besloot ik tijdens het maken dan ik hem liever horizontaal zag dan verticaal en draaide dus alles om.

De basis is een dubbele witte kaart van 11 x 13, daarop kraft papier van 10,3 x 13 en daarop designpapier van 10 x 13. Ik stanste een frame uit kraft papier met een rechthoekige stans van MFT en plakte deze op de kaart met 3-d tape. Wederom stanste ik de potten en cactussen uit Neenah papier en twee soorten groen cardstock. Kleurde de potten weer met copics 
(YR27, YR24, YR21, G99, G94, G21) en maakte het af met een witte gelpen. Plakte alles op de basis met 3-d tape. 

Ik stempelde de tekst van Els Brigé op de stempelpapier en stanste deze uit, de stans stanste ik nog drie keer uit kraft papier zodat er dimensie ontstond en plakte dit in het frame. Als laatste stempelde ik de overige tekst op het designpapier.


En als laatste maakte ik dit kaartje, wederom begon ik op dezelfde manier met een dubbele kraft kaart van 11 x 13, daarop zwart cardstock van 10.3 x 13 en als laatste designpapier van 10 x 13. 

Ik stanste het cirkel frame met twee cirkel stansen van MFT uit kraftpapier en plakte dit op de kaart met 3-d tape. Stanste de catussen uit Neenah papier en twee soorten groen cardstock en kleurde de potten met copics (E44, E43, E42) en bewerkte deze met een witte gelpen. Plakte alles op de basis met 3-d tape.

Op zwart cardstock stempelde ik met versamarkt inkt de teksten om deze vervolgens te heat embossen met wit embossingspoeder. De tekst gefeliciteerd stanste ik uit en plakte alles met 3-d tape op de basiskaart. Als laatste voegde ik nog wat enemal dots toe. 

Fijne dag allemaal!

Liefs, Marieke

My Favorite Things Superstar Challenge

Hallo allemaal / Hello everybody,

I saw this My Favorite Things Superstar contest and i really wanted to participate in it. I do not own alot of My Favorite Things goodies so i had to work with what i had. But the longer i waited the more impressive card i saw passing by and thought that my card was never going to be good enough to come nearby some of those cards, but then i taught to myself, that i'm good enough to participate and went ahead and create this card. I'm super pleased with it!


I First made a line on my card to decide were i wanted everything to be. I stamped the elephant (BB Adorable Elephants) and the ballon with Memento Inkt and then masked it of with some masking tape. I then colored the grass like this. Removed the masking tape and colored the elephant and the ballon using the no line technique. I die cut the sentiment Happy (Die namics - Happy Greetings) four times and glued them together. I made the grass onto the letters to match the background. I Stamped the Birthday sentiment from the same stamp set. And then die cut out everything with a rectangle die from blueprint 29. I cut out a double white base card and glued then panel onto it with 3-d tape.


Have a great day!

Greetz, Marieke
