Cotton wedding anniversary with Penny Black's "Delicate Florals"

Hi Everyone,

This is most probably my last post before the baby's arrival, hence please don't be surprised if this blog gets a bit quieter for the next few weeks, maybe months? I have no idea how quickly I will be ready to get back to crafting and blogging... Hopefully soon enough, as it's so nice and relaxing! However, my new little Bundle of Joy will be, of course, taking priority! :o)

Today I am sharing a 2nd wedding anniversary card I made for my hubby (and myself, LOL). I just HAD to use this Penny Black "Delicate Florals" stamp the moment I got it in the postbox, and I decided that - since the 2nd anniversary is "cotton" - I will try to use some cotton wool on the flowers. All my ProMarker colouring got covered that way, unfortunately, but the colour still peeks through the cotton wool bits, which I think gives quite a nice effect. Other than that, I decided to keep the card simple enough (yeah, I know, I did add some sequins!), as the hubby likes the "Keep it Simple, Stupid" rule ;o)

Since my fingers were already inky & crafty, and I had a lot of supplies out, I also made another card using the same stamp, with a completely different effect & technique - I will have a feeling this will be my "go to" stamp set for a while now! I will share this at some point, surely! 

In the meantime, have a peek at my anniversary card and let me know what you think of the "cotton" idea:

I am entering the card into the following challenges:
I Love ProMarkers - In the garden
Passion for ProMarkers - Summer Lovin
Penny Black August challenge - Hot summer colours
Penny Black and More - Summer Flowers
Sparkle and Shine - Challenge 11, photo inspiration

Take care!

Baby Boy Card with Mama Elephant

Hi Everyone,

Special greetings from Maternity-Leave-Land! ;o) I finally made it, I am officially off from work for a loooong time, and now we're just waiting for the baby to arrive! Exciting times ahead!

And since we're waiting for babies (yes, there's a baby boom around!), why not kill the time with making some more baby cards? LOL! This time I used the  lovely Mama Elephant "Just Hatched" stamp set with the coordinating dies - those images are so sweet. For the base of the card, I used my go-to Spellbinders die set, I really like the final effect & shape of the card. A bit of ribbon from my stash, and some Wink of Stella sparkle & bling and voila - all ready!  

I am entering the card into the following challenges:
Crafty Friends - Movie Week ("Chicken Little")
A Gem of a Challenge - Animals or Birds
I Love ProMarkers - 3 or more layers
MAWTT - Baby Baby

Have a great week,
