The Coloring Challenge Day 4 – Sea – a masculine card

Making a men’s card is not always easy, but sometimes an idea comes up and everything works. And that happened with this card.

I started with a white piece of cardstock to blend with different blue Distress colours the sky and the ocean.

While the panel was drying I die cut my ocean set and rope.
With different colours of ink I shaded my die cuts and coloured with Zig markers some parts of the boat.
I cut a card base from blue cardstock and placed my die cuts on top to see where and how I would stamp the fishnet on to my background panel. I used the acetate front that’s in the package when you buy your stamp, as a guide.

I made a slit in the background just big enough to insert a small portion of the bottom of the boat. This way the boat appears to be sailing in the water instead of on it.
I glued the boat, seagull and pole to the background panel with 3D glue for dimension. After this I stamped the fishnet on the panel over the pole, as if it is hanging in front of it.
After the ink was dry I placed the panel on top of my card base en glued, again with my 3D glue, the rope to my card. And that finished this card and I totally love how this card turned out.

The used materials are under the image and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask.

Another Birthday card

I needed a birthday card for a woman who loves France and specially the Provence.
I have a bloc from Studio Light, La Provence,  that contains sheets to make diorama box cards. But knowing I send her such card a few years ago I decided to use one sheet for a normal card.

These sheets work very fast, they are pre-cut so I only have to push the images out and cut away any attachment points.
I die cut the image with the lavender field and a champagne coloured cardstock with a rectangle die with a postage stamp edge for some interest.
On the champagne coloured layer I stamped postmarks from France. I stamped them tone on tone, on the photo it’s hard to see, just to give the layer a little decoration.
I cut some patterned paper slightly smaller than my folded card base and that will be the first layer on the card.

I die cut and dry embossed the flower basket, with the cardstock still in the die I used some ink to colour the raised areas. Because I didn’t like the size of the basket I altered it by cutting off a bottom section and made the handle shorter. Then I traced the die and cut out only the basket slightly smaller than the die and placed it behind the openings of the die cut basket.
Then I shaped my 3D flowers and arranged them with a tiny tag in the basket. I used my 3D glue for the flowers.

All the layers where adhered with foam tape as well as my basket.

In the same La Provence series there are stamps and I used one to decorate my envelope.
I stamped the lavender with different shades of purple by inking the first layer of a light colour that covered the whole flowers ( not the stem) then a second layer with a other colour by inking only a few places on the stamp and that way I also stamped a third colour.
This kind of stamping is the most easy to do with a stamping tool.
When the envelope was dry I put a very thin coat of Distress Glaze with my finger on top of my stamping to prevent smudging on the way.

I love how this card turned out and it was quick to make.

Masculine card

I started my masculine card by die cut the motorbike 4 times. One out of black paper, one from black mirror cardstock, one from silver mirror cardstock and the last one from green metallic carstock.
This will be a birthday card for a nephew who has a green motorbike.
I also die cut an oval out of my patterned paper.

Time to find a few colours ink. I used two Distress inks to colour the edges of my card, very minimal and a little over each other so that it fits in with the oval panel.
Then I took my TH stamping tool and put my base card in the tool. With help of the oval panel and one of the die cut motors I positioned my stamp to stamp the tire track under the motor.
I had to move the cardstock to the right because my stamp is a small one and I wanted a long track.
Moving it to the right allows the stamp to stay in place and remain at the same height as the image I already stamped. I placed a left over piece of acetate on to the place I thought I must stamp and stamped the image, this way I can see if I have placed my card underneath in the right place. If not, I can change the placement of my card, it’s a guide for positioning the second stamping.
When the stamping was done I put it aside because I didn’t know for sure if I would stamp also in the left upper corner as I originally had in mind.

Next  I fussy cut several pieces out of the coloured motorbikes to assemble one bike that was coloured as I wanted it to be.
Tips for layering your die cut with different colours:
Colour with pencils a single white die cut to see where you want which colour.
Fussy cut all the pieces first and lay them on top of where they have to go, this way you can see what layer or what colour you have to glue first.
Take a picture with your phone when you have laid down the layers on top of each other, so you know where to place it again.

alles geplakt
I added some silver lines on two little pieces of black so these pieces stand out a little more.
I glued some pieces to the motorbike and some I adhered with 0.5 mm. foam tape for dimension.

I decided to die cut a small oval panel and stamped my sentiment in Dutch which translates into Congratulations.

I glued the big oval panel direct on to the card base and the small oval I adhered with 0.5 mm. foam tape. And by adhering the motorbike with 1 mm. foam tape I finished my card.
I love how this card turned out and I know it will be right up my nephew’s alley.

Day 15 – Thank you Laurafadora

The moment I saw the awesome card on her blog I knew I would love to make one similar.
I’m talking about the colourful Bold Hello card by Laura Bassen aka Laurafadora.
I never done it before but this time I copied the card, sorry Laura but I thought it was such a great idea and I needed an idea for a men’s card. The only thing I changed was the Hello in to Gefeliciteerd, that’s Dutch for Congratulations.
Although it isn’t a card that I coloured with any medium, I made this also because I participate in The 30 Day Coloring Challenge. It’s already day 15, time goes fast when you are having fun!

I pull out my scraps to die cut the word Gefeliciteerd 16 times. Because I was afraid that the words wouldn’t pop up enough I glued two pieces of the same colour cardstock together with my tape runner before die cutting.
Unfortunately I forgot to put Stick It on the back site before die cutting.


I used white cardstock to fold a base card and a piece of grey for the panels on top of the card.
After some fitting and measuring I knew how to glue the panels and words on to the card.
I adhered the panels on to the base card and then I placed the words in between.
The first two I did with a ruler and then I eyeballed the rest. I did some glue on my craft mat and with a toothpick I made little tiny dots on the backside of the words to adhere them on the right place.
Life had been much easier when I had used Stick It on the backside, than I only had to peel off the protective sheet of the word and could adhere it right away to the card.

I glued 16 times the word to the card and let it dry well.
After drying I cut off the excess of the words on the top and bottom.
And that finished the card.
It was a fun card to make and I know the recipient loved it and called it a very happy coloured card.
With thanks to Laura Bassen aka Laurafafora.

Another CAS card.

Normally I almost never make CAS cards but this is the second one in a short time.
I didn’t had a lot of time, so what’s better than nothing, clean and simple is the answer!

I started with a panel of white cardstock, a stencil and Bundled Sage Oxide ink.
I taped the stencil with some painters tape to the cardstock and used a round blending tool to add the ink.
After removing the stencil I used the same blending tool and with a light hand I coloured over the whole panel. When that was done I finished the panel by adding ink to the edges.

Time to get my dies and Vagabond. From white cardstock I die cut and dry embost the orchids and branch.
With the petals still in the die I ink through the die opening with only Wilted Violet for the flower itself, and added also Candied Apple for the stamen.
I also die cut and dry embossed the branch from white cardstock and coloured it with Vintage Photo.
After that I did the branch back in to the die so that I could give the buds only on the embost (raised) areas some extra colour with Wilted Violet and Candied Apple.

My stencilled panel was dry and I adhered it to a slightly bigger white base card.

I then used a ball shaped embossing tool to give the petals and stamen there shape and dimension and glued them into a flower. After some shifting back and forth with the branch and flowers I was satisfied with the place where and how I would adhere them. But before I did that I stamped first my sentiment.
I already put my selected stamp on to an acrylic block and I stamped the sentiment with Wilted Violet.
The sentiment is Dutch for Have a nice day.
After that was dry I glued the branch on to the panel and with some 3D glue I adhered the flowers on top of the branch.
I finished my card by adding some violet and purple sequins.

It is a pity that the Bundled Sage coloured background appears more brown in the photo than the beautiful soft green in reality.

Him and Her

Henk en Trees
In between colouring for the challenge I also needed two small cards, one for a bottle of rosé and the other for a bouquet of flowers. Instead of two small cards I decided to make two tags.
I have a Marianne Design Die that makes a bottle tag, it cuts an opening on the top so you can hang it on a bottle. In the same set there is also a die for the  wine glass I used.
I die cut the tag out of white paper and with some painters tape I masked some areas to make with some stripes my Distress Inks for some interest.
The glass is cut out of a piece of acetate. I coloured a little piece of white cardstock with a pink pencil.
I put this little piece of cardstock in my Xyron sticker maker with the wrong side up, so the glue went onto the coloured side. I then adhered this behind my glass, (after finishing my tag and hanging it onto my bottle I noticed that the rosé colour was a little too pink but I didn’t have time to change it).
To decorate the tag I die cut and dry embossed a grape vine and the grapes twice, from 1 die cut I only used the bunch of grapes. This one I cut out of purple cardstock and the first one out of light green.

Henk 1
With my coloured pencils I add some shadow and highlights to the grapes.
The grape vine I coloured with some shades of green and a brown.
After colouring I glued the grapes on top of the grape vine and adhered them with some foam tape onto the tag.
Then I adhered the glass on to the tag with a small piece of foam tape only behind the rosé.
With sticker letters I made the word Proost, that is Dutch for Cheers and so I finished the tag for him.
The used materials are under the last image and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask.

Henk 2

For her I wanted a tag with the colours of the bouquet of flowers, the flowers were yellow and in the bouquet there where branches with berries in red/yellow. I used a piece of white cardstock to die cut the tag and then I taped it together with a Joy Crafts stencil on to my craft mat.
With a small ink brush and three colours of Distress Ink I made the pattern on my tag.
I put that aside to dry and in the meantime I die cut flowers from yellow, light yellow and a light green.

Trees 1
I die cut and dry embossed six of the great petals, three of the smaller one and three times the heart of the flower.
While the petals where still in the die, after embossing, I used a finger sponge dauber and the Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink to colour the petal veins. When they were all dry I glued them only in the middle together, this way I can curl the edges slightly up. I adhered them on to my tag.
I die cut the word Gefeliciteerd, Dutch for Congratulations, and adhered that above the flowers on the tag.
With a red and yellow waxed cord I finished her tag.

Hip, Hip, Hooray

A toddlers first birthday, it’s a boy and what to make? I love this die cut and embossing train set by Marianne Design and thought it would be great to put some critters in it enjoying their ride to the party.

Kaart met envelop

I used only the locomotive and the carriages dies.
For the locomotive I used a scrap piece of black cardstock and run that through my machine to die cut and a second time to emboss the details. When this was finished I kept the cardstock in the die and coloured the open spaces (which are the embossed areas) with a silver gel pen. I used the gel pen because my silver ink was to shiny. I putted this aside to dry.

For the 4 carriages I used scrap pieces of blue cardstock. These little dies are great to use with your scrap pieces of cardstock. I die cut and embossed them one by one and used for the embossed areas Distress Ink Black Soot to colour them.
Then I made a black and red cardstock strip (also scrap pieces) with some painters tape holding it together in a way that when I put my die on it, the wheels would be cut  out of the black piece and the roof out of the red.
In this way I only have to run the die once for cutting and once for embossing trough the machine instead of doing it separately for each colour. I left the cardstock in to the die to colour the wheel cap in silver with the gel pen.
I cut off the wheels of the blue carriages with a scissor and glued the black ones under the blue carriage.
The red rooftop was glued on top of the blue one. In this way you also get a little dimension by putting the layers on top of each other.

trein onderdelen
I wanted to use the critters from 2 different  3D Decoupage sheets by Marianne Design but the critters where too big so I printed them smaller to fit better with the train. Because the sheets are no longer for sale, I had already scanned them to my computer (only for my own use) in the past.
I printed them on a little thicker paper then normal printing paper but you can use anything you like.
Because the outlines of the critters are a very light grey, I drew the lines again with my black Polychromos pencil and a minimum of pressure. On some of the critters I used some pencils to deepen the colour.

I puzzled and looked how I could best place the critters in the train. After I was satisfied I took a picture with my phone so I could place them the same way in the train later on.
I noticed that when I put my carriages in a row, the coupling connecting the carriages was not long enough. The roofs overlapped. I cut a thin strip of black cardstock to the right size. I cut the piece of the carriages off and used the thin strip I cut instead.
And then I made a mistake, I glued the train together. This wasn’t a bright idea, it made the train not easy to handle. So if you want to make a train like this, put the train together on your background instead of what I did.
After I glued the critters in the train. I put the train aside.

trein met dieren
I die cut with my Joy Crafts Die set 2 clouds that would be my steam clouds, the third cloud I didn’t cut all the way. I didn’t place my cutting plate to the end of the die because I wanted to look like this one came out of the locomotive. The last part I drew and cut out with my scissors.  I stamped with a alphabet stamp set the words Hip Hip Hooray in Dutch on them.

I needed a balloon that fit with the critters, I found it on my TH Mini Bird Crazy & Things stamp set.  I stamped the balloon on a piece of Bristol Smooth scrap paper and coloured it with my Zig marker.
I looked through my dies for a number die that fitted the balloon. Unfortunately none fit so I drew the number 1 myself on a red piece of scrap cardstock and cut it out with my scissors.
I used a Joy Crafts Alphabet Die and yellow cardstock for the name of the birthday boy and glued them on my  carriages

Time to make the background.
I cut my panel as big as I needed to fit the complete train and left some room next to it, I am sorry I forgot to write down the right size. I made the sky using a stencil I made a while ago with a die from Leane Creatief and Distress Ink Tumbled Glass.
I used different shades of green pencil to make my bushes, it doesn’t need to be perfect, the train is covering most of the space.
To make my rails I used a strip of brown-gray cardstock and added some Distress Metallic Stain Brushed Pewter on some parts of the top. For the sleepers underneath a strip of  brown cardstock that I cut with my scissors in little pieces. I glued the rails and sleepers on my panel. On the bottom of the panel I used some gray and brown pencils to make some pebbles and the ground under the rails.
I used a Marianne Design die set to make three trees. Scribbled a bit with a darker green pencil to add the look of dimension in the canopy of the tree and made some shadows with a brown pencil on the trunk.
After finishing the trees I put 0.5 mm. foam tape behind the canopy and glue on the trunk (no foam tape) and adhered the trees on to the background. This way the canopy is standing out a little relative to the trunk.

To finish my the card I added the panel on to a folded base card.
I adhered the train to the background, using 0,5 mm. foam tape for the wheels and 1 mm. foam tape for the carriages, paying attention that I didn’t put foam tape behind the train on the space that would be in front of a tree. Because I already put foam on the canopy, if you use it on the same spot on your train, the train wouldn’t be equal on the paper.
With a piece of 1 mm. foam tape I adhered the balloon on its place in the sky after I put a little thread around the end in such way I could glue it on the elephant trunk as well.
That finished my card but…the card wouldn’t fit a regular envelope.

I looked through my scrapbook design papers, they would be big enough to make the envelope out of one piece. I found a lovely paper with a blue and white plaid. I decided that I also wanted to decorate the envelope.
I used a Marianne Design Balloon Die for that and die cut it from 5 different colours of cardstock.
I adhered them with 0,5 mm. foam tape on my envelope.
And my birthday train with envelope was ready to leave.

The used materials are under the image and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

New Year New Home

End of last year whe received a card from a lovely couple of friends with New Years wishes and the announcement that they bought a house and where move to a new adres.
So I made them a New House card in New Year style.

I started with white cardstock and Distress Inks to make a night sky.
Splattered with some water and put this aside to dry.

In de meanwhile I die cut and embossed 4 houses with my Leane de Graaf Lea’bilitie Die.
The fourth house I dry embossed on the wrong site of the die so that I got a opposite house, that will be the last house in the row.
I cut from two houses the chimney, these two will be in the middle of the row and adhered the four houses with a thin strip cardstock on the backside together on a way it looks like one row of houses. Then I putted a piece of black cardstock behind the rooftops to create one roof.
By placing a light yellow piece of cardstock behind one house, the house is illuminated and refers to their new home.
To finish my panel I heat embossed some stamps in different sizes that look like firework with gold and a little bit of red embossing powder. With a gold Gell pen I made the fireworks a little more realistic.

I adhered the panel to a white cardstock base , put my row of houses on top of the panel with 0,5 mm. foam tape and number stickers for 2019.
That finished my card for their new home.

Trouwkaart/Wedding card

No Christmas card for World Card Making day, but a Wedding card for a lovely couple their wedding day.
I love to work white on white by using different kind of papers.
For example, by this card I used a metallic white carstock, a glitter white cardstock and a cardstock  with texture. And vellum inside with a text on it (not shown).
Original the Love birds have a heart in the middle of the ribbon that they hold, I replaced that for 2 rings, which are stickers. I sticked 2 stickers (each sticker consists 2 rings) to each other so I have golden rings on the front and backside and the ribbon in between those two.
Unfortunately the embossed stamp on the bottom side of the card is not shown well in the photo.
You can find the use materials under the image.

Geen Kerstkaart voor World Card Making day maar een trouwkaart voor een lief stel hun trouwdag.
Ik hou van wit op wit werken door verschillende soorten papier te gebruiken.
Voor deze kaart bijvoorbeeld, heb ik een metallic karton, een glitter papier en een karton met textuur gebruikt. En vellum aan de binnenzijde met een tekst erop ( niet getoond).
Origineel hebben de Love birds een hart in het midden van het lint wat ze vasthouden, deze heb ik vervangen voor 2 ringen, dit zijn stickers. Ik heb 2 stickers ( elke sticker bestaat uit 2 ringen) tegen elkaar geplakt zodat ik aan de voor- en achterzijde gouden ringen heb en het lint zit er tussen.
Helaas zie je de ge-emboste stempel aan de onderkant van de kaart niet goed op de foto.

You can find the English translation of the text under the image.

Niets leuker dan spelen met inkt, ditmaal een vintage verjaardagkaart.
Ik heb op een vierkante oplegkaart de achtergrond geblend met Distress Oxides, hierna een stencil licht met water besproeid en deze op mijn achtergrond gelegd. Even het water in laten werken en daarna het stencil verwijderd. Wat achtergebleven druppels drooggedept .
Op de achtergrond gespetterd met Distress Stain Antique Bronze en Distress ink Vintage Photo.
De randen bewerkt met D.I Vintage Photo en daarna met Walnut Stain.
In de linkerbovenhoek een vliegtuigje gestempeld met Stazon Timber Brown.
Hierna  Oxides en Stain op mijn craftmat gedrukt en besproeid met water. Een rest stukje karton hier doorheen gehaald, droog geblazen met de heat tool en net zo lang herhaald tot ik tevreden was. Na drogen de tandwielenrand en losse tandwielen hieruit uitgestanst. Deze bewerkt met VersaMark en Distress Embossingpoeder Vintage Photo voor een roestige/vintage look.
Op een stukje bruin karton, dezelfde kleur als waar de kaart van gemaakt is, de tekst met VersaMark gestempeld en met Embossingpoeder  en mijn heattool ge-embost.
Tag uitgestanst en bewerkt met Distress Oxides.
De achtergrond op een kaart geplakt en de kaart afgemaakt door de tandwielen en tag met 3D kit verhoogt op de achtergrond te plakken.
De gebruikte materialen staan onderaan de post.

De tijd vliegt
Nothing more enjoyable than playing with inks, this time a vintage birthday card.
On a square piece of cardstock I blended the background panel with Distress Oxides, then I sprayed a stencil light with water and placed this on my background. Left that for a few moment and lift it gently up. Any residue of water I dabbed away.
Splattered with Distress Stain Antique Bronze and Distress ink Vintage Photo.
Edited the edges with D.I Vintage Photo and then with Walnut Stain.
In the left corner I stamped a little airplane with Stazon Timber Brown.
I put some Oxides and Stain on my craft mat and sprayed some water on top. I pullet a left over piece of cardstock through the ink, dried it with my heat tool and repeated it again until I was satisfied with the result.
When this piece of cardstock was completely dry I die cut my gear border and loose cogs out of this. After die cutting I used some VeraMark and Distress Embossing powder Vintage Photo to give it a rusted/vintage look.
On a piece of brown cardstock I stamped with VersaMark my sentiment and heat embossed it with Sea Foam embossing powder. Die cut this piece and edited it with Distress Oxides.
I put the background with double sided adhesive to my card base.
I finished the card by using 3D Kit for the gear border, tag and cogs to glue them with dimension on my background.
