Pumpkin tag

Here is my tag for the pumpkin challenge on 
Diana Larsons blog HERE.

While I was cleaning my desk again, I found a little
pile of tags with some beautiful backgrounds,
ready for finishing and this is one of them.
Background is made with distress inks and Tim Holz stamps.

For this the tag I also used pumpkin, cat and bird dies.
The border on the bottom is also a wonderful
 die from Tim Holtz fastned with stamples to the 
tag. The sentiment stamps are from Lawn Fawn
and the pumpkin coffee image is a digital image

The beautiful pumpkin ribbon is of course 
one of the handdyed ribbons by Diana Larson.
You find these ribbons here.


Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

Halloween Birthday Card

Here my card for the sketch challenge (see below)
with Michael Strong's latest stamp: Cloissoné Cubes.
As Halloween is near, I made the card in Halloween colors.
The cat is a die cut from Mike (just not available anymore).

The cubes are stamped with black ink and colored 
with markers. Then they were cut out and fastened
to the background with foam tape.

This is the sketch from 
CAS(E) this Sketch Blog.
I turned it sideways for my card.

Here you see the new Cloisonné Cubes.
The set comes with two stamps.

Think Pink

Loving the combination of brown and pink.
Made this card for the Love Cynthia Facebook Group.
As I only have the Coffee Addict stamp set,
I used this cute little girl and sentiment from that set.

These are the challenges for October
and week two is the pink challenge.
You find the Facebookgroup HERE.

I colored the little girl with twinmarkers
and added a tiny pearl as a button.
The sentiment is stamped with brown ink.
The pink background is embossed  with a cupcake
embossing folder. Nothing better than coffee and cake!

Thank you for looking
and have a latte creative day!

October: Pink Ribbon month

Today I share with you some pink ribbon goodie bags
and the fit perfectly in the Not a card challenge on the 
Simon Says Stamp blog. I used some fun digital images
by Love Cynthia and stamps from Stampin'Up!.

You find all the details of the 
Not a Card challeng on the


This sweet image waas a freebie on the Love Cynthia
Facebook group. I used it to decorate this bag.
I printed the image twice and cut out the girl of
the 2nd image to add with foam tape to the first
image so it has a little more dimention. The pink ribbon 
is a die from Stampin'Up!.

Here a close-up to the image. You can see I added
some sticky pink pearls to the bow and the dress.

For the 2nd bag I used some stamps from the set
Ribbon of Courage by Stampin'Up! as well
as the matching thinlits.

Here you see I decorated the girl with a pink ribbon on
her dress, a heart stamped and a sentiment on the tag.

For the last bag i added the sentiment in photoshop
and did the same as with the first image by printing
this twice and cutting out the girl to add with foam tape
for dimention.

The ribbon is cut with the Stampin'Up! die and
fastned behind the sentiment. Some tiny sticky
pearls on the bow of the girl and the I in pink.

I also enter these bags for the pink challenge on the

Club Scrap digital Scandinavia


I am late with playing with my new Club Scrap Scandinavia
digital images. When i made my Halloween card for the Saturday
Sketches, I suddenly had an idea for the new kit.

Here you see all the wonderful images that are included
 in the Scandinavia kit that you can download for only $ 4,95.
Check out the Saturday Sketches blog
for more inspiration.
Here my card in close up. I replaced the circles
by the square images that came with this kit.

The wonderful thing about digital images is that when youyr card
is ready you can print it as many times as you need it.

Thank you for looking 
and have a creative day!
