Just married...

....nope not me.. but some of our friends got married 2 weeks ago and I've created this little card for them... Buuuuttt... in my last post I told you guys that we were about to find out the gender of our baby... and it's gonna be a....BOY!!!!! We're so happy!!

Sooo... since I've been hooked to these little owls I decided to change the look of them into a married couple. (I'm aware of the fact that there's a biiiig typo on the card.. I wrote Maried with one 'r' instead of Married... oops... hope they won't notice it... :-() Cannot change it for now unfortunately... :-(

I promiss you this is gonna be the last owl card for now... hehe... I need to step outside my comfort zone now and start creating something else again.. haha... So no worries... I'm not only creating owly-things right now... ;-) This card consists of a lot of different layers to give it a more 3d look.

Again I've been using lots of scraps here... even the handmade owls are made out of tiny pieces of old patterned paper scraps! The sequins are still an addiction too... as well as the bling and glitters everywhere on the card :-) 

Thanks again for stopping by!!! I'll be coming up with a fun challenge soon!!

Baby boy or baby girl?

.... that's the question ;-) And in about 4 days we'll find out whether it's gonna be a boy or a girl! So excited... just can't wait!

Sooooo in the meantime I've been working on some little baby cards by using some more owls... I decided to shrink the owls from my last post to smaller versions to fit on my cards...and voila... underneath are the results ;-)

The owls are adhered with some 3d foam to let them 'pop' a little more off the cards. For this girly card I added some Tulip Puffy paint dots to the Heidi Swapp chipboard letters.. 

And some more bling bling and glitter all over the card. Again some sequins....can't get enough of these blingy thingy's ;-)

The baby boy card is kinda like the girly card... but instead of Puffy pant I added some Doodlebug white glitters to the chipboard letters. Both cards are made with some left-over scraps of design paper.

The little 'holes' on the borders of the cards are made with my sewing machine without thread. Oh..and did I mention earlier that I'm obsessed with everything that shines and glitters?? hahahah!!!

Thanks again for stopping by!! Have an amazing weekend everybody!

Owl mania!!

I totally got addicted to little owls these last few months, they're really everywhere on cards and projects... and somehow I just can't resist these cuties either...sooo.. I decided to create some glittery owls just for fun...a blue one and a pink one..... :-)

I've handcut all the separate shapes of these little owls (created some templates first so I'd be able to make more of them afterwards since it's addicting..). I think they're both about 15cm/5.9inch high.

Did you see my other new addiction too? SEQUINS!!!!! Just can't get enough of these!!! Keep an eye on my blog....I'll be posting a fun challenge soon (maybe a little step by step workshop) and I'll be giving away some colorful sequins!!!!!

And here's the blue one... almost the same but without the girly flower ;-) I've been using some old patterned papers.. I've picked just the pink colors that matched to do some 'color blocking'. 

Why a blue and a pink one? Well, I didn't tell you guys yet, but I'm almost 19 weeks pregnant at the moment! Woohoo!! We don't know yet if it's gonna be a boy or a girl... but we will in about 2 weeks :-). Soooo.. in the meantime I'm creating blue and pink thingies to get the boy/girl feeling.... haha ;-)

Anyways.. thanks again for stopping by! Have a scrappy day!
