WMS waltz: a Card and Ticketbox

Made this card and matching ticket-holding-box with the same grey paper as in the previous cards (true love there!!).
The box is an alteration to a box I found in a score-pal booklet that Elke sells. If you have the third print of this booklet, there is a template of a window box in it and if you use a 30x30 cm paper and score at 4-26 and 4-14-18-28 instead of the numbers described in the booklet you will create a box that can hold a theatre ticket of 22x10cm.
The stamps are from

Waltzingmouse ‘Free spirit-boy’, 'free spirit sentiments' and 'text it'

PTI 'retro backgrounds'

The stars are cut out with nestabilities.


Just finished a set of invitations. Used really really pretty and versatile grey paper. Stamped the background stamp from Hero arts in black versafine, cut out the circle with nestabilities, added a text stamp from ‘Viva las vegas stamp store’ and a copic-coloured ‘springtini’. The inspiration for the colour scheme for the ‘springtini’ came from Elke and as most of the time all the ink, paper, stamps and copics (apart from the text stamp) were bought at

Birthday Bear

Same layout as the previous card. Used turquoise cardstock. Stamped the 'present' (forever friends) as a repeated background in adirondack 'pool'. The texted stamp is from PTI.

The bear is from forever friends (Crafts'nthings) and is coloured with copics. I'm starting to get the hang of colouring with copics..well at least I think so :D!

Little One-pink

Stamped the cute baby bear (forever friends, Crafts'nthings, Antwerpen), coloured it with copics and cut it out. The card layour was shamelessly 'stolen' from some cards Elke made ( The beautiful grey paper and hero arts background stamp are also available in her store. For the background stamp I used 'spun suggar' distress ink. The 'little one' stamp and die cut zigzag border are from PTI.

Male card

Male card...brown cardstock, white paper stamped with dotted circles (clear stamp set from hero art I think), 'gefeliciteerd' stamp from Crafts'nthings (Antwerpen). Used adirondack 'pool' ink.

Stamped the text in white, embossed it with white powder and coloured the embossed text with copics to match the 'pool' coloured background.

Spring is here

Used WMS background text stamp, PTI boxed flowers, 'dikke kus' from Crafts'nthings (Antwerpen), circle nestablilities, MS butterfly punch and liquid pearls.

Made a slide-out tag and a matching candle to go with the gift. Elke from Crafts'nThings thought me how to make the custom candles...and she was right; it's easy and fun!

BIG Flowers

First stamped the background text (WMS), then the box and the flowers and finally I coloured the flowers with Copics. Added some glossy accents to the centre...and bob's your uncle!

Enjoy the ride

The car stamp and die are from PTI, the box and sentiment are from WMS and the paper was bought at Crafts'nThings.
