Lift challenge #86

Hello!
Geesh this week a post each day so far;  not my usual schedule:) But I had to squeeze in a card  I made for the current Lift Challenge We're supposed to use watercoloring  behind a die cut panel. And using only one die  The theme is based upon this original:



My idea was to make a get well card  in a CAS design and a subtle touch of color. I used a butterfly die:



And added some splatters for an interesting detail.  I was afraid the card would look to "plain" without them:

City Crafter #263

Hello!
Today it's my turn to host the new challenge at the 
City Crafter Challenge Blog

Our theme for this week is "Sequins".
I think that is not much of a surprise; 
my favorite embellishment:)



 This is a part of my stash :)


Our Guest Designer is Helen;  you can find more of her lovely projects on her blog. The winner will be invited  to join us as a Guest Designer.
I bought a stencil recently and inspired by Ros (she's amazing with stencils!) I had to give it a try:



The bricks were made with my stencil.  The splatters were made using a wooden pin  you normally use for appetisers :).  I splattered around and I think it turned out quite good. Adding sequins, a few tiny rhinestones  and some silver yarn:

Shaker card

Hello!
While we were visiting Martijn in Liverpool  I also had the chance to spend a whole day with Ros   in her craftroom (An amazing place!)
And I wish I could hop over on a weekly base..:) Marcel and Martijn were off to Anfield  and Ros and I had a wonderful day. Her friend Pat joined us and I must admit  I have never laughed so much in one day:) Ros taught me how to make a shaker card.  She is a great teacher. I am not the best student;  I spent too much time talking and laughing.
On to my card! I also used the smooching technique:



And placed my sentiment almost out of sight..... That happens when you want to talk,  laugh and craft at the same time...:



Back home I had to make another shaker card  with all that Ros has told and taught:



I love the gold trend!



Thanks for stopping by! Stella

Supplies: Various from Ros For the card made at home I used supplies from the card kit from "Bij Oma Dee" My Minds Eye On Trend Paper Gold paper Sequins Sentiment die from Little B

Hello!
A perfect day for spending a lot of time papercrafting :)  t's clouded, chilly and from time  to time rainy here in Gronngen.
