Greetings from Abroad

These ladies are sending you greetings and kisses from their journey to Italy, and they really look like they´re having fun on that trip! It´s my card for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Greetings from Abroad", and I´ve used rubber stamps from A Capella, Oxford Impressions, Mirkwood, Crafty Individuals, Nick Bantock and Darkroom Door.

Ode to Shopping

Christmas is close, and with Black Friday next weekend, Marsha´s new Tumble Fish Studio kit "Ode to Shopping" is right in time ... I´ve made two digital collages this time, but you can also use the kit for your cut and paste artwork such as journal pages, because it comes with png images as well as collage sheets for printing.

Movember

Yes, it´s NMovember, so it´s time for Moustaches! As I think that this is an important theme, I´ve made two cards again for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge, one mixed media card and a digital one. For the stamped one above I´ve used a moustache button from Red Lead, isn´t it great? And for the digital card I´ve used images from Hidden Vintage Studios, Marta van Eck, Holliewood Studios and Tumble Fish Studio, all at Mischief Circus.

For these two Christmas cards, I´ve combined papers and ancestor images from Tim Holtz with rubber stamps from Red Lead, then added brads and ink.

It´s going to look like Christmas

Only five weeks are left before it´s Christmas, so it was time to start with my Christmas cards. These four cards have been made with rubber stamps, wooden tiles and collage images from Red Lead - more to come!

Heaven Sent

Here´s a digital collage made just for fun, using elements from Hidden Vintage Studios, Itkupilli and Marta van Eck.

Away

I hate shopping shoes, and I don´t think that I have more shoes than a man has, and none of them are high heels. Shoes are made for walking, aren´t they?
So here´s my card for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed Shoes.

Wanderlust


Marsha has come out with a wonderful new image kit at Mischief Circus, called "Wanderlust".
I´ve made two digital pieces for you that you can see above: "Dream Adventure" and "The Song of the Fish".
And below you can see that these images can easily be used in your cut and paste artwork - here they are used for a page in my Moleskine journal.

Celebrating Character Constructions

Five years ago, I´ve had a great afternoon together with my sister Sabine: We pulled out all our Character Constructions stamps and just started having fun making cards, not using any other brands.
Now you can find a few of our results published in the latest issue of "Just Stamps", these three of mine among them ("Celebrate the Earth", "No Homes", and "Tea Party", issue 3/14, pages 17-19; you´ll find them in an article about art dolls though two of these don´t have any art dolls on them). As always, there´s a lot of interesting stuff in that magazine, so if you´re able to, just flick through it or maybe order your issue online.

Out of the Chaos into the Light

Today I´ve been in the mood to try the new challenge at Digidares and create a page that is split into two halves - a dark one and a bright one, each with appropriate images and words; the quotes are from Nine Inch Nails and Friedrich Nietzsche.
