Ginkgo Leaf

 

Today I choose the ginkgo leaf stamp to make some cards and started to make some backgrounds.

1. on the left I used 4 different colors of embossing powder, 2. in the middle the image is embossed with clear embossing powder and colored with lime green color burst powder and 3. on the right the 3 colors of distress oxide colors.

These backgrounds came out so beautiful, that i wanted to show of the stamp with not so moch else added.

For this card I die cutted the sentiment added a ribbon and a few sticky pearls to set of the beauty of the ginkgo leaf background.

This is the embossed background. You may wonder how I did this. Stamp the image with versamark and add ech color of embossing powder one by one. Tap off the first color, put the left over powder in the jar and close the lid (so you make not the mistake i did by adding the powder in the wrong pot). Then the next color the same way and every other color after that. Also hew sticky pearls. Great for an Autumn birthday.

I have one more card on my Craftchaos Blog, hope you come over and see. Thank you all 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!

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!

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 !

Panda Thank You

Hello Stampers! Hetty here with a thank you card. As we do not celebrate Thanksgiving in The Netherlands, I wanted to make something related to this. I see all these post by people telling every day what they are thankful for. Well, I am thankful for being on this design team and able tho use Annette’s wonderful stamps. So thank you Annette for having me! I love using your wonderful stamps. As a panda is always eating lots of bamboo, I thought this was as close to Thanksgiving as I could get.

For my card, I colored the background with distress ink and on top I used a stencil. I have more detailed pictures on my Craftchaos Blog for you. After I finished the background the Walking Panda stamp was stamped once on the background and twice on another piece of white cardstock. So I cut the panda’s and used foam tape to add this to the panda that was already stamped on the background. The Thank You stamp was stamped on a piece of white cardstock and decorated with the same bamboo stencil. For decoration I added 2 bling gemstones.

Thank you for looking and wishing you all a blessed Thanksgiving with your family and friends.
