Club Scrap and Coffee Lovers Winter Blog Hop (day 4)

Today I am playing in two Blog Hops, yeah!!
Ofcourse my #4 card for the 
but also some fun projects
for the 
Here is a look at all the projects I have come up with.
I have used a combination of the following
Club Scrap products:
          * Scandinavian Holliday um rubber stamps
  * the digital Scandinavian Holiday set
* Trattoria and Scandinavian papers.
Christmas is giving, so how about card #4  with a spot where
you can enter a gift card. Ofcourse a coffee gift card!

For this card you need a piece of (Scandinavian red) cardstock
of 4,5 x 11 inch. Next you score the card at 5,5 and 9. Now
you are ready for decorating.
For the frontpanel I printed some paper from the 
digital Club Scrap Scandinavian Holiday set.
Papers are red from Club Scrap Trattoria
en turquise from Scandinavian kit.
The cup is cut with the Coffee Caffee die
(this week my favorite) from Stampin'Up!.
The snowflake on top is stamped with the 
Scandinavian Holiday unmounted rubber stamps
and next cut out with a scalloped circle die.
In the middle a green gemstone.
The ribbon is also Club Scrap.
This is the inside of the card.
The little flap that is the pocket is also decorated
with a pievce of left over from the printed digital paper.
The sentiment and the baubles are also from the
Scandinavian Holiday stamps. The coffee ring stamp
is from the vintage mocha Java kit.

I made this little pots with a tree as a  table decoration.
The pot is a left over can from some corn we had
for dinner (I saved 3) and got these tiny trees in 
the $$ store. 

I started with a strip of red Tratorria paper and stamped the
snowflake border with white ink. The hearts are printed with
the computer and added on to the Scandinavian blue paper.
The bird is stamped in blue and decorated with a
punched out heart (from glitter foam) and some
sticky pearls.
For this pot i stamped the Scandinavian blue with
green trees and tore up some paper border, making it look
like snow (of what we have a lot of since yesterday!)
Then i tied a red ribbon around it and finished it of with 
these lovely squares that came with the digital kit. 
Well, the left one did and the right one is my version of it.
That is so handy with digital images.
A view of my backgarden!


I also used the square image in a larger version for making
these cards.

And here the 3rd pot with the tree in the middle
and the birds on either side. When having a digital
image it is easy to flip it horizontal and make it look
both ways.

The sentiment is stamped with red ink and glued
on either side of the tree.
These cards are made with the digital kit. I first played around
in photoshop, then printed them out and added them to real
cardstock. With various decoration they look finished and
ready to be send.
And finally I made up this card with the Club Scrap
digital Holiday Card template. A ready made template,
where you only have to add some pictures and you
are good to send your card.


Thank you for looking and hope
to see you again tomorrow for more
coffee fun,

Have a latte creative day!

Club Scrap December card sletch

Today I share with you my card for the
card challenge on the 

Here you see the sketch.

As I noticed a lot of cars with trees on top this year 
on cards, I looked through my stamps to see if I could
find some to make this too. Well I did. I found a car
with the National Park stamps and in combination with 
the Joyful wooden stamp from way back, I had a perfect
combination. I stamped the wooden stamp in green and 
blue and colored the tree with the same green ink.

The background is stamped with a snowflake from the 
unmounted rubber stamp sheet Joyful (2009).
Binding it with the red/white baker's twine the front
panel was finished. 

The base of the card is paper from the Club Scrap
 November Scandinavian kit and the green behind
the front panel is from the Tratoria kit.
Inside the sentiment is also from the Joyful
UM rubber stamp sheet.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

CAS(E) this sketch #249

Here my sketch card for the

With the special edition of the
Tim Holtz stamps and stencil set from Simon Says Stamp
that I got in Stamptember it is easy to make 
a quick card, starting with the stencil for
the background.

Here you see the sketch from the blog.
It is a retro sketch, using an older one again.
And why not!

After I colored the background with the stencil,
I stamped the deer and the sentiment.
The border is stamped on a seperate piece of
paper and cut out and taped to the card. Then the
red/white baker's twine is added with two jingle
bells to make the card very festive.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!
