#1 - Opening

Over at The Greeting Farm Blog they are having their Farm Fresh Friday challenge which this time is "Move". I got so inspired by one of the DT cards that showed an opening gate, so I wanted to try it myself. The background and the door is embossed with embossing folders from Tim Holtz and then distressed with some distress inks. The Greeting Farm stamp I chosen comes from the Miss Anya Dressy set and is colored with my Copics. The sentiment stamp inside the door is from Simon Says Stamp. Hope you enjoy it!

#100 - Ocelot, a cross-stitching

So this is the last project in the 100 project countdown, the idea was that I wasn't supposed to shop before I made 100 projects, well I failed miserably. But it was fun to somehow keep count on all the projects I made. So I might do something like this again, never not shopping tho. This project is a long going project that I started last fall. It was a challenging project but also very fun. Hope you like this Ocelot as much as I do.

#97 - Piccachu Amigurumi

So K wanted a Piccachu of his own, so I digged up the pattern from Wolf Dreamer Off The Hook and tried it again. This time using a thicker yarn and some felt for eyes and cheeks. And it turned out better than the last time. I really love Wolf Dreamers patterns she has loads of pokemon and even a minion, which I think will be my next amigurumi.

#96 - Mother's Day Card Tutorial and Giveaway

When the Simon Says Stamp Card Kit came in the mail this week I knew I wanted to use it to make a card this week. During the His and Her course I started to play more with my stamps and coloring and the stamp in the kit this month just spoke to me, that and the examples. Hope you like it.

#94-95 His and Hers - Day 2 - Second batch

One of the techniques shown in day 2 was using painted vellum, this seemed so fun so I needed to try it, with my own little twist that is. I wanted to use it behind a "die-cut", showing through. So I found this nice styled happy birthday in the silhouette store and I combined it with to different labels to get my "die-cuts". The stamps I used on the cards are from two different stamp sets from Simon Says Stamp. I'm not 100% satisfied with them, I think I would use a lighter cardstock for the fronts instead of the black if I would make similar cards. And the card that look blue on the photo is actually purple and pink.

#92-93 His and Her - Day 2

The His & Her Class is amazing, so many tutorials and so much inspiration. And it makes me create, I wanna be apart of it and the only way is to create. So I try to do at least two cards per day, one for him and one for her, incorporation one or several of the tips from that day. This is my first cards for day 2, they are happy birthday cards, hope you like them. The her card is created with materials from Simon Says Stamp Card Kit January and the male card is made from materials from the February kit.

#88 - 91 His & Hers

I never taken a craft course before, if you don't count the ones I had in school (ages 7-15). But when I found out that Kristina Werner and Jennifer McGuire held classes I knew I wanted to take one of theirs. Where at day 3 in the course which is called "His and Hers"(I'm a little behind already) but here is what I've done so far. And I must say that it's really worth it, you get so many tutorials and videos, I will definitely take more courses in the future and I really recommend this one.
