Halloween postcard

Making Halloween themed cards is so much fun. This postcard is for Oda, Hong Kong. So this postcard has a lot of miles to travel before it reaches its destiny.

Used: Memento Tuxedo Black, Stampin' Up inkpad (Only Orange, Green Galore), Close To My Heart inkpad (Hydragenea), Close To My Heart Artbooking cartridge, Artiste cartridge, Cricut Expression, Uni-ball Signo white gelpen, Copic multiliner, rubber stamps and white thread.

Halloween tag, postcard

Front and back of the Halloween tag has to be decorated. Front side should be the best side. Here is my take on the Halloween tag for Michelle/USA.

I like this rubber stamp and I made another postcard. This time I embossed the image with Ranger distressed ink (vintage photo). The card board is also distressed with the vintage photo distressed ink. And of course, the back of my postcard is like a real postcard. Yet to be sent to/no destination yet.

Resending Summer card

Unfortunately my partner received the Summer card I made for her all damaged. So I said I would make her another Summer card and resend.

I also created a card for my friends daughter, but I think I can do a better job for a 7 year old. So I'll make her another, but very cute card:-))

A large birthday card for my daughter Swesdy. Michelle and I created this birthday card ... yes ... a lot of pink:-)

Used: Penny Blossom image, Copic markers, Cricut machine, Close To My Heart clear stamps, card stock, ribbon, Close To My Heart inkpads.

Handmade art journal
Created with Canson mixed media paper, card board, an old greeting card and a (brown) lunch bag. For the Journal/sketch journal @ swap-bot. My front cover:

I used card board, stencils, die cut stickers and my The Cinch binder.

The vintage stickers are in fact stickers to decorate bycicles. I cut out the white border and used them for my art journal.

On card stock a little message and my address. Distressed card board

Here I recycled a lunch bag and turned it into a double page.

A pocket created out of a paper bag.
