Cats and birds


Today I wanted to share with you a couple of cards I made during 2022. 

My crafting year 2022 was more about doing and less about sharing my work, but I have a feeling that this year might be different: Creating will of course proceed intensively, but I will also continue documenting my artful journey here in my blog. 

I know that writing blog posts is no longer that popular, but I like the thought of building an electronic project archive here. Of course I also hope that the showcased projects would inspire other fellow crafters.

I have had the great pleasure to cooperate with Carabelle Studio for two years now. Their stamps and stencils really get my creative juices flowing, and I love the fact that their designs vary in style. Mixing and matching different looks is so much fun!

Colouring and fuzzy cutting. There's nothing better 💗

In the design team I've also fallen in love with the gel plates. My first gel plate I purchased already years ago, but did not really know how to use it and what to do with the prints I pulled. The gel plate talent in the team inspired me to give the technique another try, and I was amazed. I had no idea how versatile the plate was!

Especially the possibility to use different kinds of stamping inks with the plate was really eye-opening. For this card background I used pink Distress Oxide ink and a Carabelle Studio stencil. 

Is there a technique you have left behind because you considered it to be tedious, challenging or overall non-motivating? But which you have rediscovered at a later point? 

Wishing you a wonderful winter day! Thanks for stopping by!
