Isn't that just FABULOUS.....

So this is what I have made.....

 I had fun with the Wine Label template from Dutch Doobadoo, I did not even think of a bee I know  they are as Sweet as Honey but the theme reminded me of something really sweet....like the soft colours, the butterflieshearts and these cute kids on the image. 

So what I did was.....I cut out the wine label and did not want it to be on a WINE bottle but on a bottle of candy hearts....since I just loveeee hearts and everything that is sweet..I thought this was a good idea.....onto the label I played with some Paper and used the Dutch Doobadoo Honeycomb stencil with the Light Modelling Paste. And on top of that some embossing powder to give it some bling.....
So at the top the label I placed some hearts from Dutch Doobadoo 
and some lace and made a bow out of it...
And at the bottom of the label I placed some hearts and a cute image with some butterflies....don't you just loveee those butterflies....I know I do....hearts and butterflies love love love it..

Love xxxx Kisses Card

Hallo allemaal,

Ik heb eens lekker gefreubeld en een kaartje gemaakt met het mooie stempeltje van Sarah Kay, dit is toch wel een van mijn favorieten.

And for my English visitors....
Hey there guys,
I was having a nice time with some crafting...I have made a card with the fabulous image from Sarah Kay, I can say this is one of my favourites....

Ik heb Sarah ingekleurd met Prisma Aquarel potloden en dat was lang geleden dat ik dat eens gedaan heb. Ben wel tevreden met het resultaat. De randjes van het afdrukje heb ik met Vintage Photo Distress Stains bewerkt.

I have colored Sarah with the Prisma Aquarell pencils and I must admit it was a long time ago....but never the less I am happy with the results. The borders are distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Stains.

Dit is het resultaaat, ik heb gebruik gemaakt van de Dutch Doobadoo Shape Art Mal  de Dutch Doobadoo Mask Art Stencil Flower en je kunt er zulke achtergrondjes mee maken, dat moet je echt eens gaan uitproberen hoor. De grote bloem is bewerkt met Wendy Vecchi Crackle Textured Paste , misschien denk je wel van hoe gebruik ik dat spul dan....nou heel simpel, je kunt gewoon een laag aanbrengen op de plek waar je wilt en de Crackle Pasta zorgt ervoor dat er een "gebroken" oppervlak ontstaat. Daar boven op heb ik een aantal hartjes geplaatst van Dutch Doobadoo. Ze zijn echt geweldig om te gebruiken. Onderaan de kaart heb ik een aantal vlindertjes  van Dutch Doobadoo geplaatst deze zijn bewerkt met PanPastel en Utee om ze extra stevig te maken. Een randje kant om het stempeltje heen een paar woordjes van Tim Holtz van zijn chitchat stickers en zo heb je al heel simpel een kaartje gemaakt. 

This is the result, I have worked with the Dutch Doobadoo Shape Art Mal and the Dutch Doobadoo Mask Art Stencil Flower and you can easily make backgrounds with them, you should really try it out your gonna have loads of fun with them. The big flower in the background is worked on with Wendy Vecchi's Crackle Textured Paste, perhaps you think how do I use it? Well very simple just apply it on the place you want it and let it dry....and on top I have placed some hearts, They are really wonderfull to use on your cards and projects. At the bottom of the card I have placed some butterflies from Dutch Doobadoo and I worked on them with PanPastel and Utee to give them a stronger look. I have placed some lace around my Imaga and some sentiments from Tim Holtz his Chit Chat Stickers. And my card is done.....

Ik hoop dat jullie hem leuk vinden en als je op de linkjes klikt kom je bij de Webshop en kun je zien welke producten ik gebruikt heb van Marijn.

I hope you like my card and when you click on the linky it will take you to the Webshop and you can see which products I have used from Marijn..

Dank je wel voor het kijken en veel plezier
Thank you for your time and have fun

So, Awash with colour huh?
Well, the Scrap365 team asked Nikky to choose a specific colour palette and to use it for inspiration.

This is the colour palette that I have worked with....


It is called Succulent Pallette and I just love these springlike colours.....I did not have all the colours Pans, but I made the darker violet and the green myself with the colours that I do have.

The colours that I have played with are:

You can click the image and it will take you to the store for checking out these amazing colours...


 So this is what I have made....
 I have never made a layout but for the Scrap 365 bloghop I thought I would make something.
I started out with getting all sorts of stuff that I wanted to use......such as the panpastels, pictures of my girls, honeycomb gears, dutch doobadoo hearts and board, butterflies and stencils.....and a canvas....

 So what I did was I started out with Gesso, Light Modelling Paste and used the Stencils from Dutch Doobadoo. 

Then I placed some Honeycombs for decoration. On Top I played with my colour palette with PanPastels and mixed some of the colours to create the right colours

 So then I mixed the colours I used lots of heartssmall heartsbutterflies and gears from Dutch Doobadoo to create this layout. I added some lace to finish my project.

This week the theme is HEARTS FOREVER 

And this is what I have made....

I have played with a little box,worked on the background with GessoLight Modelling Paste and used the Circles Stencil from Dutch Doobadoo and it is really fabulous to work with. And I have played with hearts from Dutch Doobadoo I have played with some yummie Spring colours the Bright Yellow GreenTurquoise  and PhtHalo Green PanPastels.

Oke so here I have gathered some items, a box to play with, some fabulous colours PanPastels, hearts and Maimeri. 

I have mixed the PanPastel dust with the Maimeri to give it a permanent look.

After putting the Maimeri together with the dust this is how it looks...a little bit yukki but trust me it will all be good lol.....

I have worked with the Circles Stencil from Dutch Doobadoo and colored the circles onto my box....and on top I have placed some Glassy Gel....it is a bit shiny isn't it?

I did the same with the hearts...first layer the Glassy Gel and after that I have colored them with the PanPastel mix....

Then it looks like this, I did the same with the butterflies, colored them with the PanPastel mix too...

Offcourse I had to color the bottom of the box too, used the white and green PanPastels and also the Circles Stencil...and the result is this.....

So just had to check if the colors were right .....and I am happy with them together....

So now I have placed a little piece of lace over the hearts and the butterflies are on top of the box too, can you spot them......  And to decorate the box I colored the hearts with PanPastels and some lace on top. The Butterflies are colored with Pans too....The box is finished with the Glassy Gel.
