A creative new year

A creative new year

A creative new year   It’s the last week from this year and I want to wish all of you a happy, healthy and a creative new year up front. For this week I had a free choice and what could I have made better then this fast and easy card. I only used a 210g A4 black card stock to make this card, there was a little piece left that you can use on an other project if you…

An origami pinwheel card

An origami pinwheel card

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…

DIY Stamps

DIY Stamps

  DIY stamps   There is nothing more fun then trying out things, especially when they turn out right. 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

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…

Diamond pop up card.

Diamond pop up card.

  Diamond pop up card   Sandie from Hobby Alternatief showed us through the chat a YouTube where Demo Donna showed a diamond pop up card being made. I have made a few cards similar like this one earlier, but this one is different and I thought it would be fun to make something like that again. Not like the one in the video of course, would be difficult too because I don’t have most of the materials Donna used….

Technique: working with dia frames

Technique: working with dia frames

  working with dia frames When I saw the assignment from Hobby Alternatief for this week: make something with dia frames the first time I had loads of ideas that I could make, but as usual my card came out totally different.  🙂  A few of those ideas did make it on this card though. I started with looking for the slide mounts.  Yes I still had some from ages ago, most of the frames had slides in them but I found 2…

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…

Flower Shaker Card

Flower Shaker Card

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…
