Sneak peek

Just sharing a little peek into my next project. I coloured the same image twice with Distress ink. One image is stamped with Adirondack Dye ink and the other with Stazon. Both worked but gave a completely different effect.
I' ll be making 2 cards with these Lili of the Valley images. Hope you 'll come back to have a look.

Spring has Sprung

A soft toned card for springtime in just 3 colours; white, pink and blue.
The stamps are from Autumn Leaves and the paper is from K&Co.
The frame is cut with the Cricut from the Storybook cartridge.

 Glimmer Misted flowers from Kaisercraft.
Making Memories trim around the image and EK Success border punch.

Mumu's Bicycle

Finally I can get back to my internet! We had an "outage" on the landline. Hopefully this time my connection will last and the speed will be up to scratch.
Besides from that; what a lovely sunny and warm day. The forecast is 17Celsius, very good for this time of the year. Our goldfinches are enjoying this weather. Robin and the blue tits are in territory fighting mode.
I took my bicycle for its first spin of the year and might do so again today.

My card is Mumu on her bicycle and the stamp is by Mo Manning. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.
 I made a spring card and found the how-to here.
Lovely papers from Jillibean soup.
Prima flowers coloured with Glimmer Mist and green silk flower from Petaloo.
To all of you; just believe that you are wonderful,... no matter what your age is.

Buds Box Card

I have been missing for a couple of days, but only because I have been working on this sweety.
It is a box card, well actually a shakerbox with my card attached to the front of it.
I have made my own felt roses and leaves. I coloured the ribbon on the front with Copics and the lace with Glimmer Glam in Pink Lipstick.
I love Glimmer Glam and Glaze and the Mists, so glad I discovered them. This little stamp is from Sugar Nellie and of the artist Elisabeth Bell.

 This little felt flower is from MM.
Inside the box is my flower garden. I have changed all the flowers with Glimmer.
 On the tag is a Hero Arts Friends sentiment stamp.
 So lovely these Prima leaves.
A butterfly border with Glimmer Glam. Really good stuff as it makes the embellishments a bit stiffer and sturdier.
 Even the back of the box is decorated.
 Another detail of the flowers. You can click on them to enlarge.
 All the glitter used and some...
And some of the items used.
Hope you like it.

Spring baskets

I have been in a crafty mood and now that Spring is drawing near, it is time for Spring baskets.
I do not call them Easter baskets, because for me Easter is about something else.
But for the kids in us, who like colourful chocolate treats, here are my Cricut popcorn cups.
The cut is from the Tags, bags, boxes & more cartridge.

The bunny and basket cut are from the Doodlecharms cartridge and the grass is from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.

The DP is from DCWV glittered spring stack and American Crafts.
All embellishments are from Making Memories; brads, flowerbrads and ribbon trim.
All chocolate figures, hollow and filled eggs are from Aldi.
