Birthday card

After some random blogpost I’m back with what I had in mind when I started this blog: CARDS. This is the first birthday card after the holidays so I wanted something colourful and warm.

Most of the time I use 1 or 2 sets, but in this card I used 4 sets! It’s really nice how well they fit together. Here they are (from left to right):

Homemade X-mas Cards

Homemade Christmas cards: check! I only wish I started earlier! That’s why I couldn’t share them until now. If you have a question on how it was made or which stamps I used, feel free to leave a comment. I learned a lot from a great Youtuber: K Werner Design, check out her work here. Enjoy the result and have an awesome Christmas! For next year: I’ll start earlier!

Pop-up card

Little girls grow up, before you know you are making another birthday card. I found this interesting tutorial on Youtube, which really inspired me … so I got to work immediately. You don’t require a lot of equipment: some cardstock and assitate (overhead projector sheets). Personally I used the “Cake & Candles” stampset from Avery Elle to give it a birthday theme. Because I don’t have a balloon punch, I carved my own stamp design in some rubber using linoleum knives. Look at the awesome result!

Cardmaking

My recent favorite thing to do (when I have the time) is cardmaking. I love making cards for birthdays, baby showers, holidays and so on. A card is something that I always forgot to buy and then rushed to the supermarket before a birthday party. With a graphic design background and lots of great cardmakers on Youtube I started making my own. I think a homemade, personal card means so much more than a bought one.

I will post the cards that I make on this blog, if you have any questions, feel free to ask! I hope you will enjoy these tips and tricks.
