Joy ,Love, Peace....

I made those very simple christmascards because I have so little time left to make enough cards. And I love this stamp.  Think it doesn't need much more than a little watercoloring on the background to make it pop.

Christmas Wishes

 
Another christmascard. This one is made for the Waltzingmouse fanatics challengeblog and  Just us girls challenge blog
They have a very nice sketch for us to make and this is my take on it.  I used an oldie and a new stampset and did some watercoloring on the background . The snowflakes are stamped with distress ink - tumbled glass and I put a little sparkle on it with stickels..and because of that I can also join the Just us girls challenge ..their challenge is sparkle ! and snow falkes are no snowflakes if they don't sparkle right?

Thank you

Hello again... I haven't been posting or crafting for a while , because we moved to another town. 
It all came very unexpected  so I have been very busy. But it was sooooo worth it! 
I love our new home , and not only because I got a mega craft room at the attic now I just love the whole house and town .
I finally got my craftroom in order enough to find the peace to craft again. Still have things to sort out and give it a final place that I like , and also want to do some redecorating  like new wallpapers and do some painting but that will come in time. At least I can start crafting again , and really looking forwarth to do so and picking up blogging again , I got sooo much space now.
Oke enough bladibla about the room ..here is my first card I made . I made it for my dad to thank him for all the help..hope he will like it

Sending oodles of love and hugs..

 
So I had a great day today spending most of my day in my craft room and actually do som crafting too ! I took out my box of waltzing mouse stamps and made it a waltzing mouse sunday. 
This card was made using this weeks sketchchallenge of freshly made sketches . I just loved the sketch and think I will join them more often now I got my mojo back again. Sketches are always fun to work with , the just give yu that little kick off to start creating you need sometimes.
I found so much fun challenges so I decided to combine some today..normally I don't do that, I think each challenge deserves it's own project but this just came along the way..so I also enter this card to the Curtain Call challengeblog wich has the theme  smootches  and the Waltzingmouse Fanatics challenge Blog  because I used two differend sets of waltzingmouse stamps.

Making my own stencils aka masks

 
As you might have noticed I found my way into the artjournalling and mixed media. One of the  things you use for this is a mask or stencil . There are a lot of differend ones from a lot of differend brands. Hard to choose from and if you want t build a nice collection of them it will cost you a lot of money. I thought this can be done cheaper and I am the very lucky owner of a silhouette cameo , so why not cut my own masks right? So I tried cutting them from pagediveders but didn't really like the results , it was not sturdy enough. So now used laminate pouches wich I had run through the laminating machiene..the laminator..and the stencils turn out awsome! the picture shows just a few of the ones I cut out this afternoon..they are nice and sturdy and just as thick as the stencils that you buy in the shop. whoo hoo the laminatepouches I use are very cheap only a few euro's at the Action ( kind of dollarstore ) and the cameo settings I use are knife 9, speed 1 and thickness / pressure33. I won't be able to use this knife for cutting paper again but who cares! I got some great stencils now..
