Spring is here with lots of tulips

Hello, Hetty here again with some cute little cards.

Spring has arrived in my art room! Not outside though….too much rain and very heavy winds today. So it was a good day to start using my new distress oxide inks for these ATC’s. I used the tulip stamp set. For each card I used another color. After stamping the tulip. I covered it with a post it note image. Then I stamped with the same color the text behind it. If you want to see more detailed pictures, please hop over to my personal Craftchaos blog.

Now as for the gemstones, don’t they fit nicely and are the same color? Well, I used the same colors of distress markers to color the gemstones before I glued them to the card.

Thanks for looking and have a creative day!

Spring is around the corner

Hello! Hetty here and some of you know I live in The Netherlands, country of the bulbs, All around me the bulbs are popping their heads out of the ground and looking so festive.

So I choose this Iris stamp for my card today. If you are not a coloring person, this is a perfect stamp. Only a little coloring on the flower with aquarel pencils. With a strip of beautiful paper of a thousand wishes (great for birthday cards!) and a yellow paper behind the stamed image this card needs hardly anything else.

To make this card a little more bling, I added a few shiny sequins to this card. This image is great for quick cards. Hope you are inspired and get your fingers inky too. Have a wonderful creative day!

Happy Birthday

Hello there, it is Hetty with a birthday card idea for you. I made this card also for a color challenge (all details on my Craftchaos Blog). The background is made with the Forget Me Not  stamp. I stamped it with versamark ink on white paper and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I took red ink and a blending tool and colored the background red. With a soft cloth I polished the paper and take a way the red ink from the flowers. The embossing powder works as a resist.

On a seperate piece of paper I stamped the Love Birds with black ink and the birthday sentiment underneath. Then I cut it freely with scissors, glued it to black paper and cut it out again with a border. After adding the black ribbon to the border the birds were added on top with foam tape. Thank you for looking and i hope you all have a creative day!

Happy Year of the Rooster

Hello, Hetty here again and I have another Rooster card for you. As the New Year is very near, you might need a quick card and i share with you how to do this. I use the Year of the Rooster stamp and a rooster charm. For the background you need an acrylic block, red ink, water and aquarel paper.

This is what you do: take your acryl block and add red ink direct on this block. Than spritz a little water on the ink. Put the block on the table with the inkside towards you. Now take the paper and lay it on top of the block. Rup with your hand on top of the paper, to get all the ink on the paper. Carefully lift the paper off the block and you will see the red ink on the paper. Every time you do this, you will have a different, but quick background. Now take the rooster stamp and with black ink stamp it randomly on the card. Add the sentiment and spritz some black drops to make the background a little more interesting. The brass rooster is added with a piece of foam tape.

On my Craftchaos Blog you can see the technique with a few pictures and another sample. Wishing you all a wonderful celebration and Happy Year of the Rooster!

Chinese New Year: Rooster

rooster for chinese new year

Hello Hetty here with a card for Chinese New Year that will be the Year of the Rooster, so here some inspiration with the stamp of the rooster that you can find here. This card looks complicated, but I can assure you it is not. I have some pictures on my Craftchaos Blog. This is how it works: first you stamp the background. Stamps some roosters with versamark and emboss them with white embossing powder. Take red and orange ink and color the paper with a blending tool. The white embossing powder works as a resist. Then I stamped the words Year of the Rooster (that comes with the rooster stamp) at random in black. A few drops of water and the background is finished.

For the red circle i stamped the rooster in black and colored him with pencil. After adding some red/white twine around the card I added the circle with foam tape on top. The Happy New Year sentiment is from the Holiday Greetings and after stamping it, I cut it apart and added it to the card like the rooster called it out.

I hope you will visit my blog too and besides seeing the tutorial, there is an ather card with the rooster. Thank you for looking and have a creative day!

Paper Lanterns for the New Year

Hello. Hetty here and I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones. Now we are only  a few days away from the New Year, so i had to come up with a new year card for you. I made these paper lanterns with the snowflake background stamp.

You find a complete picture tutorial on my Craftchaos Blog, here I will explain a little too. First I stamped  the image with versamark and embossed it with white embossing powder. The embossed flakes work as a resisit and when I colored the paper with blue distress ink, the snowflakes were popping up. Then I cut out the lanterns with a circle and an oval die. The shapes where run through a crimper and little strips of paper where added on top and bottom of the shapes. The tassels I had in my stash and where ready made and just perfect for my card. The background of the card is a now embossing folder from Stampin Up! and the sentiment for the New Year can be found here as Holiday Greetings.

Leaves me to wish you all a very Healthy, Energetic, Peaceful, Loving and Creative New Year!

Whimsical Snowman

Hello, it is Hetty here with a snowman card.

I started with making the background with an embossingfolder. This one is called Brick Wall. I added two different colors of blue to the insside of the folder, before adding the paper. Then I ran it through the bigshot and afterwards i sprayed some mica silver spray on it. Next I stamped the whimsical snowman on a new piece of white cardstock and colored the image with pencil. When finished the image is cut out and fastned to the background with a little spiral, so it wobbles. I hope you will hop over to my personal craftchaos blog and see how it is done and a little video. It takes up to much room here. The Season’s Greeting was stamped with black ink and taped to the background and 2 shiny gemstones were added for a festive look of the card.

Thank you for looking and have a creative day!

Happy Holidays

Hetty here with a Holiday card to wish you all Happy Holidays and hope you all have a wonderful time with your family and friends. I want to tell you a little how I made this card with the skating reindeer and the Christmas text background stamp.hetty_an_tutorial2

On the left you see how the background stamp was stamped on the card with the misti tool. The advantage of this tool is that you can restamp your image on the same spot. Starting with the red color first and next finishing the words with a green inkpad.

The same inkpads were used to color the reindeer with an extra brown pad. Next the reindeer was cut out and added to the card with foam tape.

I also decorated the inside of the card with the same reindeer stamp. The sentiment can be found here. I hope I have given you some ideas for your last minute Holiday cards.

Merry Christmas !

Children

Hello! Hetty here and wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving. As I did not have any special Thanksgiving images, I thought I make this card with children. The family is important on this holiday and children always make it even more festive. The image of the boy came on a little bag that Annette has put into my package. So i cut it and used it in the baclkground of the card. The little girl is from a sheet called Koi and Asian Women. I colored it with pencil and added 3 little gemstones. The border is also from the little red bags. I can always make this into a children’s birthday card or for a new born.

Wishing you all a very happy and special celebration!
