Pink blossoms and butterflies

Pink blossoms and butterflies

An unusual Christmas card

An unusual Christmas card

  An unusual Christmas card     A few weeks ago I made an unusual Christmas card, I made some “pressed” paper, just to try it out some time. Not the way it was made years ago but in a surprisingly easy way. I like the pressed paper and the pattern in it so much that I turned it into a Christmas card. One of the DT members liked my card so much and asked me to write a blogpost…

I went into our garden to look for little useful items and found a little twig that was suitable. At that…

This was the case with these DIY stamps that I made for this weeks assignment of Hobby Alternatief I have always wanted to try to stamp with painters tape and now was the perfect time to actually give it a go. I used my acrylic blocks to wrap the painters tape around, making sure that the tape wouldn’t overlap itself. While wrapping…

Design challenge: Unusual shapes

Design challenge: Unusual shapes     This week we received a sketch at Hobby Alternatief with, at least for me, unusual shapes, I don’t know if my college team members made cards like these before, but I haven’t. For this card, a real challenge for me, I had to sit down for some time and move the dies that I could use several times over the paper to get the best result. I had to do a lot of calculating…

Flower Shaker Card   This weeks theme was to make a flower shaker card and as an example they showed us a video of Olga Direktorenko. Now I had seen that one before and already had it on my to try list, so I like this theme. I made a test card first with the top mat to thin so it didn’t look nice enough. I made that one in white with the flowers coloured with black sooth distress ink. So…
