Online Extravaganza. And a stack of cards.

Hi all, it's been quiet here but I'm beavering away trying to make as much Christmas cards as possible.

I have some great news for you. We have a 24-hour sale today. It's part of the Online Extravaganza that runs from today, November 21st, till November 28th. Black Friday starts early at Stampin' Up!
How can you resist all savings up to 40%. Everybody needs a little help this Holiday Season and we have plenty to choose from.

On the picture below you see the products in the 24-hour sale. There will be another 24-hour sale on November 28th. I'll keep you posted.

I have  PDF for you in case you want to check out all the products of this Online Extravaganza.


I made a stack of Christmas cards. And they were quick Christmas cards. I include a small tutorial to show you how I made these.

First you gather your supplies. A piece of watercolor paper, a stamp (I used the pine tree from Lovely as a Tree), some Stampin' Write Markers and a Stampin' Spritzer.

You start with colouring your tree with the Stampin' Write markers, I used Old Olive and Early Espresso with my tree.

Spritz your stamp with water and stamp image on you piece of watercolor paper.
When you hold it down for 3 seconds of less you get a watercolor look.

When you hold you stamp on the paper a little bit longer you get a more defined look.
My preference was the watercolor look.

I glued my stamped piece to Crumb Cake cardstock and tied some Cherry Cobbler Bakers's Twine around my card to finish it of.

A Sympathy card.

This is not the type of card I like to make. But when I do have to make one I try to make a nice one, even if that sounds a bit silly.

At the moment I'm following a great Online Card Class called Heat Wave and it's all about heat embossing. And for homework we had to make a project with what we learned.

I first inked up my stamp with versa mark and then inked it up with Crumb Cake ink. I then used clear embossing powder and used my heat tool to melt the powder. I now have a lovely embossed flower branch and it's easy to color the leaves and the flowers. I used Crushed Curry, Old Olive and Cajun Craze Markers.

Paper Pumpkin Kit April 2016

I loved the Paper Pumpkin Kit from April. I love making home decor and this wreath was so easy to assemble.

It's Party time

It's my husbands birthday today so naturally I made him a card. I CASed the card from a card I saw on the Wplus9 website. I love CAS-ing. I have had no inspiration for quite some time now and this way I'm still crafting.

Stampin with Markers and a Stampin' Block!

This is one of my most favorite techniques. You color with your choice of markers on a Stampin' Block, mist it lightly with water and place the block on a piece of paper. You never get the same result twice. Let it dry and finish with your choice of stamps. I made my card into a sympathy card. I do not like black and white for sympathy cards. I like this better.
The markers I used are in the Weekly Deals, only $ 11,25.

All products are for sale in my online store. You can shop 24/7.

Birthday card

I haven't pledged myself yet to the "#imbringingbirthdaysback" movement yet but I do send out birthday cards. And at the moment I have to start way in advance because most of the cards I have to send have The Netherlands as destination and that takes a bit more time.

So this card is almost where it should be by now.

I used the Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper Stack for this card. And the Number Of Years stamp set.
