Stampingbella - Christmas bug card

How cute is this stamp set!!!
A Volkswagen Bug is my absolute favorite vintage car, so I needed to have this one. While coloring I started singing 'Driving home for Christmas' from Chris Rhea. Slowly we're getting into the Christmas spirit...

This is how my card turned out.

MFT Superstar contest - card 3

Hi all,

This is my third and last card for the Superstar contest. 

For this card I wanted the sentiment to be the 'star' of the card. After inking the sentiment with black licorice ink, I also inked it with versafine and clear embossed it to give it a nice shine.

The card is stamped all in one layer (another Camp Create technique) with flowers of the Bold Blooms stamp set.

Here's my card.

Hope you like it.

MFT Superstar contest - card 2

Hi all,

This is my second card for the Superstar contest. 

For this card I used one of the techniques from Camp Create, dry embossing.
First I die cut the border, then stamped the flower arrangement and dry embossed only the flowers and not the leaves.

Next step was to mask the flowers as well as the scalloped border so I could stamp the background with Versafine and gold emboss it. To give it a bit more contrast I also die cut the same blue border.

Here's my card.

Hope you like it.

MFT Superstar contest - card 1

Hi all,

This is my first card for the Superstar contest. 

I wanted to create a card that look like those beautiful batik fabrics, so rich with gold threads in black fabric. I love that.
To achieve that all the little flowers and bugs were embossed in gold. For coloring I used pencils, it was not easy to find colors where you can color on black card stock. I let myself be inspired by one of the Camp Create challenges, where coloring was done on kraft paper.
Wings of the bees got some sparkle with a Wink of Stella glitter pen and finished it off with some gold pearls end crystals. 

Hope you like my entry

Camp create day 3 - Inlaid Made Easy

Back again with a my entry for day 3 of camp create. This is an easy one LOL, I already have a card ready I can enter for this challenge.

Last weekend I was being creative with the Make a wish card kit from MFT and decided to use the glitter technique from the first camp create and created glittery flames. 

The red hearts in the flames are inlaid in the yellow part. I did this by die die-cutting the hears first and glitter them. Next step was die-cutting the flames around the hearts and glitter those separately. Once all the glittering was finished I laid the hearts back into the flames. The candles got shine too by adding a layer glossy accents on them .

So, badge number 2 is in the pocket.
And here's my card:


Camp create day 2 - coloring on kraft

Yay, another week of camp create!

My entry now is for day 2, where we needed to create something with coloring.
Badge number 1 is in the pocket.

And here's my card. I colored the complete background with Copics. Because of the bright colors I kept the rest of the card simple.
