Sisters Layout for Sketch Challenge at **BoBunny**

Well hello there,
How nice of you to be here today as I would like to share my layout with you all.
This layout was made with the beautiful "Madeleine"collection for the November sketch challenge at the BoBunny blog ==> here <==

Take a look at the pretty sketch: 

           This is my take on the sketch:


I was very pleased when I saw that my assignment for the month November was the Sketch Challenge I really enjoy working with sketches. 
I knew right away which photo's I was going to use, if you look closely you see that the girl on the picture in the middle is another girl her name is Mijntje {she is my oldest niece from my husbands sister} the girl on pictures on the left & right is Roos, Mijntjes younger sister.
Both girls have almost an identical smile don't you think so?       

Since this is the stamp week I used a whole bunch of stamps. At first I was scarred of stamping but now I really love it. Maybe you see I used some older stamps too I will tell you which on the supply list. Another thing I love is layering & sewing and I did a lot of that too on this layout.

I wanted to journaling to be the focal point on my layout it says.
I used the licorice stamp it's actually a really dark ink pad to soften it up I used some gesso & the sugar glimmer spray. 

In Dutch:
Lieve Mijntje en Roos toen jullie nog heel klein waren.
Leken jullie ontzettend veel op elkaar zelfs jullie lieve lach was bijna identiek.
Het is zo leuk om deze foto's naast elkaar te zien echt zusjes.
In English:
Sweet Mijntje and Roos when you were little girls 
You looked so much alike even your smiles were identical.
It's so nice to see those picture together real sisters.

Two Cards for the **BoBunny** stamp week!

Hi everyone, 
Today I would like to share two cards I made for BoBunny.
Last week it was the stamp week over at the BoBunny blog and I love stamping, at first I was so afraid of it but now well....I stamp on every layout or card.

Happy B Day You:

When I saw I was designing in the stamp week I got really excited I love stamping especially with the BoBunny stamps. The base of my card is made with the Coffee sheet from the Double Dot range this card has four layers.

I made this card for my husband he was born in 1971 don't you just love those circle number stamps?
Distressing the borders of the four layers is what I think makes it all look very shabby.

The flower with the hash-dag brad was handmade using the plain Kraft Gift bags. I took out my It Is Written stamp and just randomly stamped on my cut out circles. Then I sprayed them with water & gold glimmer spray and wrinkle my six circle {in three different sizes} up and you have a flower.

BoBunny Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Passage, Antiquity, Evening Mist/Somewhere In Time
Double Dot: Coffee
Stamps: Stitches, It Is Written, You're Invited, Inline Alpha, Captured
Doilies: Small
Kraft Gift Bag: Plain
Kraft Wood: Clocks
Blossoms: Buttercup Bouquet, Denim Blue Zinnia
Brads: Somewhere In Time
Glimmer Spray: Gold, Sugar

Hello You: 

The design of this card is quit similar as my first card it also has four layers. When I got my DT package with the Enchanted Garden collection in it, it was the first collection I cut into which is sometimes really hard to do. I cut out the butterflies first then I didn't look at it for a long time and they were laying all around my scrap room but now they finally have a purpose were it should be on a card.

The three squares are made with a Cheery Lynn Designs die. I stamped on the squares with the music stamp & stitch stamp, then I took out my stickable stencil and pasted on top of the squares then I finished it of with the mint, gold and sugar glimmer spray.

On the right side of the squares I stamped the largest Curly Q stamp and went over it with the butterscotch pearlescents pen to make little pearls.

BoBunny Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Enchanted Garden, Pathway, Fantasy, Periodical/Enchanted Garden
Double Dot: Island Mist
Double Dot Jewels: Emerald
Stamps: Stitches, It Is Written, You're Invited, To The Point, Curly Q
Glimmer Spray: Gold, Sugar, Mint
Pearlescents: Butterscotch
Stickable Stencils: Brocade

Did you already visit the BoBunny blog there is a new sketch challenge going on I would love to see what you will create! Visit the blog here ==> BoBunny Blog <==
I do hope you like my cards wish you all a wonderful & creative week.
