C@T 6: Metallic paper

Hello everyone,

This week I have made some card using metallic and burlap paper.


I have really enjoyed making them. They are all just that little bit different.

I have used gold and old pink colored metallic paper that I have cut into stripes. the thinner ones are 5 mm wide and the larger ones are 1/2 inch.
For the flowers I have used the burlap paper.

I hope you like them.

See you all next week,

C@T 5: Late Love you – card

FullSizeRenderHey all,

Thank God we don’t do valentine in our family!

We all have been sick the last couple of weeks.
I’m not sure what is wrong with me, But sinds about 3 months now I have been losing weight. I have lost 20 kg. now without any diet!
At first I thought: “Great!”, but now I start to worry. Even more now I have been feeling sick for the last couple of weeks. Every time I start to feel better something else comes up….
Anyway, not only me, but the rest of the family have been down with the flue as well.

So that is why I have been away far to long.
Hope now everybody starts to feel better I can keep this blog up again.

The cards I have made this week could be a valentines card, but it can be one you give to someone just to say thanks and how much you love them.
They are very clean and simple cards again, just the way I like them.

Byebye, Stefanie

Card 2: Dimensional Butterfly Card

Hey all,

This week I made some butterfly cards.

I have used the Sizzix butterfly delicate Sizzlits die. I didn’t cut the butterfly all the way through, but only cut out the wings and left ‘the body’ attached to the card. To make the card more dimensional I adhered 2 more butterflys behind the butterfly on the card. You can also use the Sizzix basic shapes, bigz die for that.  To cover up the ugly marks the die left on the card base, I adhered a card stock where i cut out a butterfly on top of the card base.

Here you can see how I made them.

I hope you will all have a great weekend, see you soon…


Hallo allemaal,

Deze week maakte ik enkele vlinder kaarten.

Ik gebruikte hiervoor de sizzix vlinder Sizzlits die. Ik sneed de vlinder niet helemaal uit, maar sneed enkel de vleugels en liet ‘het lichaam’ vastzitten aan de kaart. Om de kaart meer dimensie te geven bevestigde ik nog 2 andere vlinders achter de vlinder op de kaart. Je kan hier ook de Sizzix basic shapes, bigz die voor gebruiken. Om de lelijke markeringen die de sizzix die achterliet op de kaart te verbergen kleefde ik er een ander stuk papier voor waar ik de omtrek van de vlinder uitknipte. Op die manier kom je tot een netjes afgewerkte kaart.

Ik wens je allen een goed weekend. Tot gauw.
