An origami pinwheel card I decided to make an origami pinwheel card for this weeks challenge. I had to think long on how to do it and started looking on Youtube for examples, and I finally came up with an idea for the Christmas origami challenge. The folding of this pinwheel is very straight forward, I will ad a video so you can follow the steps to create one. For the origami pinwheel card part I have chosen a 15 by…

A silver green Christmas

A silver green Christmas

A silver green Christmas By now you all know that with the DT Team from Hobby Alternatief we get a sketch every month to work from, this time we had one as well. This time I have chosen to make a silver green Christmas card.   I’m still sorry for my short blogposts from the past weeks, I still have to be careful using my left hand and writing two blogposts is to much for my hand at the moment. I…

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…

Christmas card in 3 colours

Christmas card in 3 colours

Christmas card in 3 colours     A while ago Willie and Anita form Hobby Alternatief asked us to choose 2 colours with my base colour being white. It was a nice surprise, we “had” to make a christmas card with only 3 colours. The usual christmas colours where already spoken for so I choose white, as base colour of course and then grey and red. I used a ready made white base card from 15 by 15 cm and used…

Technique: ink a stamp and squares

Technique: ink a stamp and squares

Ink, a stamp and squares The assignment we had from Hobby alternatief for this week was to use squares, ink and a stamp, I had to think longer over this one then what I usually do. My head stayed blank for a while because the shape stays square how ever you use it and I don’t like working with multiple geometric shapes on 1 project. At first I thought of placing the shape 3 or 4 time side by side…

Working with sketches

Working with sketches For Hobby Alternatief we get a theme every week and every month we are working with a template, at least 1 time each month. For this month we had to use the sketch I showed above. I like working with sketches, and then build them up, I have a  board on Pinterest where I safe a bunch of them for when I’m not sure how I want a card to look. To be honest I have saved them there but haven’t…

Tarnished Foil

Tarnished Foil

Tarnished Foil This weeks theme for Hobby Alternatief was Tarnished Foil, I had no clue of what that was. I knew paper foil and I know metals can tarnish but I never saw it on paper so I went to youtube, My to go to place when I need to know something about techniques and “how to’s”. And with watching one video I knew what to make. Finally I could use one of my gears embossing folders and a few of my…
