Stampinback november challenge

The November challenge birds, looked easy enough, but it proved to be a challenge. Again I made 2 different cards.

The second card, also very easy is stamped with versamark and then embossed with silver powder, two score lines and a couple of pearls. The bird stamp is from Inkadinkado, the text from Daisy & dandelion.

For the first Stampinback challenge I had to make some time. So the vacation period is over again and in the last weekend I managed to make 2 cards.


For the first card I used craft paper, timber brown stazon and a flower stamp from I brake for stamps. The text is a clearstamp from Technique Tuesday. To color the flowers I used distress ink mowed lawn, walnut stain and picked raspberry.
 

The second card was even easier, one color only, stazon claret. The text is from hero arts and the blossom is from stampinback.

July candy Krea2day

Yesterday I decided to make something for the Krea2day July candy. It was lot's of fun since I had to make a card no larger than 13.5 x 13.5 cm and use at least 4 different types of dies.


My first card I folded the shape of a large Spellbinder die (timeless rectangles) ans added the hearts from Cheery Lynn. The decoration is done with the vine die from Whimsy, the butterfly from Joy Crafts and the small flowers are from Marianne Design


For the second card I wanted something completely different. So I started with the spellbinder (splendid circle) and put the congrats text from Marianne Design in there. Because I needed to add an extra accent (it was too blend) I added a Cheery Lynn border behind the circle. The corners and butterflies are from Joy Crafts.

I would like to enter the cards into the following challenges:
- Krea2day - Candy van Juli
- Papertake weekly - Die-ing For A Punch!!!
