Orange #7

For my last orange card, I've used the leftovers from my other cards and stamped flowers on them.
I was in a cheap mood and didn't spoil anything from my backgrounds :)  These flowers are from a stamping set which I bought in the Wibra and costed very little.  The lovely sentiment is from Differnt Colors ('In a year are always special moments... this is one of them').

Orange #6

I'm not so happy with this card. Because I wanted everything to go together I painted the cardstock, but it started to curl and I thought it would go away when it dried, but unfortunately it didn't :( 
The flowers are a Crafty Individuals stamp and the sentiment is from Different Colors (Every day has something, but today is special!).

Orange #5

This is a card I'm very pleased about :)  I absolutely love this La Blanche stamp, but I don't think I've used it before.  Because I didn't want it to become to busy,  I only colourd the flowers with distress markers.  The background is an Aladine stamp (mariage set),  stamped with Versamark.  The sentiment is from the Crafty Secrets set 'Glamour Girls'.

Orange #4

I have this stamp from Crafty Individuals for quite a while.  I think this must be one of the first stamps I had.  It perfectly combines 2 of my hobbies: stamping and birdwatching.  The sentiment is from a Crafty Secrets set 'Bird Lovers'.

Orange #3

My third orange card is quite simple.  I created the background with a spotted stamp from A Capella in different distress inks.  The focal stamp is from Stampers Anonymous.  Because this stamp has a border around it, I also gave the orange piece and the background a small black border with my copic marker.

Orange #2

My second orange background is sprayed with red ecoline, but I don't know if you can see it clearly on the picture.  I've combined balloon stamps from 2 different stamping companies: the background and sentiment are from Stampinback and the focal stamp is from Crafty Individuals.  I have to admit I had to do the background twice because I didn't use the correct ink first and I had black stains on it :(

Baby Roos!

On June 4th my youngest niece Katrien gave birth to a second baby girl, Roos.  Because we went on vacation so short after it, we could only visit them yesterday.  It's a very sweet (and long) girl but we witnessed she could also cry very well.  Of course I couldn't arrive without a stamped card :)  I used the same materials as on my latest baby card: an old Sugar Nellie stamp 'Cute and Cuddly',  one of my favorite paper pads: First Edition 'Hideaway and a Dutch sentiment stamp from Aud Design ('it's a girl').

I want to enter this card for the 'Oldie but a Goodie' challenge.  The current challenge is to create a card for a baby.

Orange #1

I didn't show anything on my blog lately, but that doesn't mean I didn't stamp.  It's nicer to receive a birthday card that you haven't seen before, so I didn't want to spoil the surprise.  But now that all cards have been sent, I have an orange serie for you :)  I've had my orange distress inks on my desk and I tried to give them a different finishing touch.  This background is sprayed with a gesso-water mix, but maybe this wasn't so good with this stamp as it covers a lot of the background.
