We belong together

Just got the Lawn Fawn stamp set "Milk and Cookies" and I love it. It is so simple but cute. Guess I am on a CAS streak, so I made another 15x10,5 cm (~6x4 inch) card.


The design paper is from MME with the name Chalk studio, I have the 6x6 cardstock paper version. I love the papers and are so annoyed with me that I didn't buy more. I can't remember the brand of the paperclip, but these are so fun with the ribbon part already attached.


Everything is layered and I used some framelits and some distressing to help with a more finished look. My favourite ribbon is the 12mm version from Panduro. I use it most of the times. The hearts are felt like textile.

I've got these amazing stamps from "Katelkraft" and totally fell in love. I had to make some no occasion cards I can use for almost everything. The Katzelkraft stamps are perfect for the cards I had in mind.


The stamp is the mini 087 from Katzelkraft. A bully like image I coloured with my Derwent pencil, which I haven't used in ages. The design paper is the "Antique Newsprint" from Chandler. Everything is layered and distressed with black ink.


The card is all in ground colours and black. Nice, simple and without any saying to use it for any occasion, targeted for male receiver. I always have problems to craft something for my male friends and acquaintances. the inside is blank until I know the occasion and can alter it a bit when it is needed.

Turn me On

I just saw this card on Pinterest from Lawn Fawn and fell in love with it. Of course I needed to make my own version of it.


I really love the outcome. It is for my boyfriend, so the colours and bling is reduced to a male colour scheme black and white, gray, yellow and red. The background is stamped with the cute stamps from the Lawn Fawn Turn me On set. They have so small but powerfull stamp sets. I used SU Basic Gray as background colour and even altered the paper a bit with it.


I layered the background and the light bulbs, the rest is glued on directly in the same layer. The hearts have a textile look and feel and fit perfect in the scheme to "bling" a male card.

Copics used on the cute light bulbs: C3, C5, C7 and  Y06, Y08, Y15 and Y11.

Mutts and people


After expending my hobbies I made my new years revelations to post more about all my creations and not only my greeting card collections. Therefore, her is one of my newer hobbies: making T-shirts for friends and family.


The family dog is quite happy with these creations. I thought some kind of partner look is OK as long as it is not obvious.


So I used the same theme but different designs for the male and female shirt.

How Old

After one week in my new job I thought I earned some crafting time. My big brothers' birthday will be soon and I started the tradition of funny greetings about his age. Nevertheless, he is 7 years older and I will be always de young, little one :D


This said, I used the cute "You rock" stamp set from Clearly Besotted. The dinosaurs theme fits perfectly in my genre of BBBCards (big brother birthday cards). I only used the warm gray colour scheme of my Copics for the dinosaur (W7-W0), so I got sort of a monochromous look. The paper from Panduro is the Vintage Christmas one and uses a warm gray colour as well.


To get some accents one the card, I coloured the vulcano with purple grays (BV23, BV25 and BV29) and the lava with bright red colours (R59, R46, R37 and R22). It is difficult to see, but the lava is covered in Glossy Accents as the eye catcher of the card.

The vulcano smoke is from Lawn Fawn "Science of Love" set. I used the Sketch Saturday sketch as main inspiration. Did I mention that my fav collours are purple (my big love), black/gray (boring but they look good with everuthing) and red.
