Thank You Love Card for ***Cheery Lynn Designs***

Goodmorning lovelies, 
Oh am so I happy that spring has landed here in The Netherlands as I am longing for some warmer weather and some vitamin week it's going to be about 18 degrees and I can't wait for that. Well enough of me blabbering about the weather today I would like to show you another card, this time it's made with the gorgeous "Summertime" collection by Maja Design and no flowers for me this time {well a little but no die flowers I mean}.

Thank You Love: 
I am a hugh sucker for those DL278 - Horizon Fishtail Banners dies the projects you make with them are endless. I completed my card without any mixed media and that was really hard because nowadays all is mixed no spray's, paste etc only a stamp with the word love.

Life is Beautiful so Just Smile Layout for ***The Dusty Attic*** & ***49 and Market*** and also playing at ***More Than Words***!

Goodmorning lovelies,
Spring arrived here in The Netherlands and I am really enjoying the nicer and warmer weather already, can't wait for the Summer to start. Today I want to share another layout which is very springlike because of the wonderfully and beautiful 49 and Market flowers & Dusty Attic chipboards  which is very easy to make it pretty when you have such gorgeous products to work with. In my last post I told you I am in LOVE with the "Vintage Shades" collections and all the words strips chippies,  so for this layout I used another shade of those flowers. I also added some butterflies from the NEW layered embellishments on my work.

Life is Beautiful so Just Smile: 
All the chipboard pieces are by The Dusty Attic which I colored with gesso and later one with embossing powder, rust paste and ink. For this layout I used the pretty NEW "Scents of Nature" combined with just one little piece of "Vintage Artistry" at the bottom part of my layout. The picture is one of my gorgeous little niece "Mijntje"who is not so little anymore she is almost ten now here she was just one, this picture makes me happy and smiling from ear to ear.
This layout was based on the pretty mood board & sketch at the Dusty Attic blog for this month did you already enter your work?? Can't wait to see it....

 On the background I used the faded demask stamp by Gabrielle and I used it with embossing ink and powder but also with just darker ink then I sprayed my most favorite spray on my whole layout {sidewalk chalk by Lindy's}

On the background I added paste with a damask stencil to match my layout. At the end I also used some mini prills. It's the first time I used the grunge board {not sure what the name is} on the lower part of my layout I really like the effect it gives my layout.

The Dusty Attic products used: DA1594 Smile, DA0507 Ferns, DA11704 life beautifully, Word strips and Circle Ornate frame, Tickets, Oval frames.

49 and Market products used: Scents of Nature, Vintage Artistry, Vintage Shades flowers, pale lavender garden vine, pale lavender blooms, Faded demask stamp, mulberry paper flowers. 

Other products used: Stencils, Paste, Rust Past, Lindy's Stamps Gang sprays and embossing powders, Stamps, Mica Powders, Cheese cloth, Gesso, Ink.

With this layout I am entering this months challenge at "More Than Words" using the word "Beautiful" & Butterflies which is totally up my ally just take a look at how pretty it is: I also went with the colors of the pretty picture. 
Thank you so much for visiting my blog and have a glorious weekend....hugs  

Happiness Layout for ***Maja Design***

Goodmorning lovelies,
Spring is in the air and I love's my favorite time in the year because now summer is really nearby. I really enjoyed the latest mood board from Maja Design did you already enter the challenge? If not I will have some inspiration for you using the beautiful mood board. It has beautiful greens and blues in it and such a romantic vibe....that I really enjoyed creating this layout as I do with all of my Maja Design projects.

I cut the The magnificent Flowerstreet bs sheet in half and placed it on top of the 6th of March bs sheet! Then I added some sprays, stamps and paste on my layout. All the chipboard pieces are by Dusty Attic and I gessod them all, and some of them I embossed and others I added some rust past & mini prills on.
This is the lovely mood pretty don't you think so too we would love for you to enter. Here are my close ups: 

The flowers I used are by several manufacturers. I really loved the text on the mood board that's why I added it on my work in papers strips that I just printed out on my computer. I won a wonderful prize last month at a challenge site with all 13 Arts products and the hugh glass circle I added on top of the "happiness" disk is one of them.

Maja Design papers used: Vintage Spring Basics: 6th of March bs {my b-day} Sofiero: The elegant Wine house, The magnificent Flowerstreet bs and Monochromes-shades of Sofiero: Mono Air Sky bs

Thank you so much for stopping by I hope you enjoyed my post today, have a lovely weekend..... love <3

Happy Having Fun Layout for ***49 and Market***

Goodmorning everyone,
I am so much in love with the pretty vintage shades flower range that I just can't get enough creating with it. This time I made a layout using a picture from our son Kevin seven years ago when we were on our vacation in Spain. I have to say I really enjoy to combine the amazing "Vintage Artistry" collection with all the other collections because I really like the neutral feel it has. This time I added the new "Scents of Nature"at the bottom part of my layout. Then I stamped randomly with several stamp sets to later on add some crackle paste on my layout.

Happy Having Fun: 
Lately I am a little more making soft tones layouts as well as cards and 49 and Market is making that very easy to do. After stamping I added two stencils with paste and later on I sprayed with three sprays by Lindy's! With my last DT box I got some of the amazing rustic flowers they are so gorgeous.

All the chipboard pieces are gessod and treated with embossing powders, some of them are treated with stamps and rust paste. In my flower clusters I used cheesecloth and some other stuff that I can't remember the name off sorry. Di used it before ;-) I also added some prills on my layout mostly between the fish net.

I also added some natural elements which I got at the Euro store such as shells, twigs and little balls {not sure what they are hihih}. To finish my layout I added some gesso and twinkling spray on my flower clusters.

49 and Market products used: 

Other products used: Dusty Attic chipboard pieces, Stencils, Paste, Lindy's Stamps Gang sprays and embossing powders, Stamps, Mica Powders, Cheese cloth, Gesso, Ink.

Thank you so much for your visit today I hope you enjoyed my post and are inspired by it to use your 49 and Market goodies as well.... have a lovely week.

For this blog hop I made a card using some amazing new 49 and Market papers called "Scents of Nature" & "Looking Through"! That cute little fairy sitting on my card is from the Looking Through collection. These papers are from such a high quality that once you worked with them you are in love I can tell you that. The pretty Cheery Lynn Designs IOE Embossing Folders & Dies are a perfect match for these papers.

True Love:
For this card I used the soft tones in light blue and the darker blue in the Scents of Nature collection also I added some light green papers to match the fairy her wings. This particular embossing folder is such a beauty that I really enjoyed working with it.
I used the outer side of one of the older IOE embossing folders & plates with the dots which I really love. I cut it out and layered it on top of the other IOE folder to get more dimension. So much layers added on my card.

Hello Card for ***Cheery Lynn Designs***

Good morning everyone.
Today I have a easy card with you to share.  On this card I played with just three dies and a bunch of mixed media sprays. I really love to use all the mixed media there is in this industry and what better way to use it together with my lovely dies by "Cheery Lynn Designs"!


For my card I just used white cards stock on top of that I cut out just a smaller piece of white card stock. Then I sprayed some colors on that piece of paper followed by just water to let it blend a little then I dried it with tissues.

Then I cut out my dies and I used some gorgeous papers by 49 and Market to complete my card. At the end I added some dewdrops and some shimmer spray.

Together we Smile Layout February SOE Watercolor Wishes Kit for ***Scraps of Elegance***

Goodmorning lovelies, 
Today it's my birthday and I would like to share a 12 by 12 layout using the amazing wonderful February "Watercolor Wishes" kit at Scraps of Elegance. This is a gorgeous kit with all pretty 49 and Market goodies in it but also some pretty metal pieces and other stunning embellishments this is just a must have kit. 

Together we Smile: 
The picture I used is of my precious cousin her daughters Nadene and Hanna and I really love this picture of them {it's so sweet}. I really got inspired to use this picture because of the lovely haute couture stamp set by Gabrielle Pollacco that was also in this kit. 

I also used some sticker words that I had in my stash but you can also print words or text on a pieces of patterned paper and just print it out that works fine for me on most layouts. The chipboard piece I used here is treated with rust paste by Finnabair and it was cut in two. 

 Those glass stones that are in this kit are just the bomb wow I really enjoyed using them on this particular layout. The pretty metal bird you see at the bottom picture is by Prima Marketing and is so adorable. I used the pretty stencil in the kit on different parts of my layout and also I added a bunch of Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays on this piece. 

This main kit is still available at the Scraps of Darkness/Elegance Store so it you would like it please be quick because it's amazing. Just take a good look at all these yummy products below. 

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today and have a wonderful week...
