My Treasure Box of cards


Dear Stampin' friends,

Today's post will be in English, especially for my foreign stampin' friends. Don't you just love surprising people with a hand stamped card or a tag to add to your gifts? I decided to make some extra cards so I always have enough cards on stock whenever there is a birthday or any other occasion. The wooden box I discovered in a little shop down town and is just perfect to keep all my little treasures perfectly displayed. The box is stored on my desk and I can't keep my eyes from my personal treasure box. I love it! This is the result of the stamps I ordered in the pre-order period, so much fun to do some experimenting with my new goodies.


I used several new stamp sets for the various cards, I like the lovely "Love You Lots" and "Fabulous Flora" hostess set and "Layering Love". These text stamps are just great to work with for different occasions. The "Painters Palette" stampset and the "Designer Tin of Cards" are perfect for making tags. I received the "Thin of Cards" stamp set during the OnStage event in Amsterdam. I felt so lucky!!


Here is a detailed view of my favorite card with the 2 hedgehogs. I used the Markers from the Neutrals collection to colored the stampset  and I used Black Basic Stampin ink. For all cards and tags I used Water Color paper as a basis combined with the following colors: Mint Maccaron, Sahara Sand, Basic Black.


I hope you enjoyed this post and  I would love to hear from you.

Love,









These are the supplies I used;  ( Please note that Love you Lots and Fabulous Flora are Hostess sets)

  26. Ik geef je een reactie in "dutch' Melinda, voor mij even wat makkelijker! Wat een leuk item heb je gepost! Prachtig hoe je je kaartjes en labels zo in een kistje presenteert! De kleurencombinatie en je stijl zijn ook SUper en het ziet er erg sfeervol uit zo! Ik lees dat je in Den Helder woont, dus wonen we maar een kleine 30 km bij elkaar vandaan! Ik woon in Middenmeer! Sinds 31 maart 2014 SU-demo! Lijkt me wel leuk je eens te ontmoeten!
