Frosted designs: Buttons.......5 or more

Good morning all, 

Hope you are all enjoying your day....... weekend is coming so we at frosted designs
 will be giving you a new challenge.

Use 5 or more buttons on your craft project!

This is my inspiration for you today:

I made this canvas with a picture taken in Holland on my phone. 
Everybody must have seen a picture of Amsterdam with the houses, bikes and canals. Well it's like that in many cities and villages in Holland, this picture was taken in Middelburg (south west of Holland)

I think in total i used 14 buttons! 

I made a brick wall with dark blue skies and painted the small little houses white.

Stay tuned in tomorrow for:

There are some great challenges coming up for the next few weeks with lots of goodies for you to win.

I wish you all a nice weekend.

Berry71blue: "It was a lovely day"

" it was a lovely day" By Channa Suitella

At Berry71blue we were very lucky this month as we all received 2 collections of the 7 dots studio. Beautiful quality papers and lovely collections.

"I used the 7 Dots Studio papers from 2 collections, 
" hopefully" and "all i ever"

I made this layout with a picture of my husband and i only holiday this summer on the Greek island of Corfu. 

I decided to do some cutting, the round little doilies around the picture and i added some chipboard from scrap fx and some flowers from manor house that i sprayed purple to match the layout. (see flowers left top corner) All can be purchased at  Zeus & Zoe."

I used papers from the 7 dots collections below:

I hope you enjoyed our inspirational layouts with papers
 from our sponsor this month  7 Dots Studio.

You still have a few days left to enter in our November challenge 
of Agnieska. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

Get creative : sketch challenge

Good morning to you all, 

It's time for a sketch today  at Get creative and i made this card:

This is the sketch:

I made this card when i was in Holland.
My apologies if the pictures are clear enough, i am had to make them with my cellphone. 
Where would we be without them. I left my camera charger in holland?????

I colored the little houses with copic markers, an i thought they fit perfect 
with this design paper from websters pages. Unfortunately i could not find a stamp that says " home sweet home" so i had to write it free style.  

Your still have time to enter your cards for the get creative challenges
Just pop over and add them to the sidebar. 

Good luck and have a good day.

Berry 71 Blue " Crazy little angel"

Hello everybody!

I hope you are all having a good start of your week. 
Today i will share my lay out for Berry 71 blue, the challenge for this
 month is " Going Crazy" by agnieska.

Like a tornado i went over this page, i used a sheet of the " hopefully " collection of 7Dots and some scrapfx chipboard, together with some modelling paste, dylusions sprays, masks, gold paint, black ultra thick embossing enamel and this is my result:

I started with the modeling paste and a mask, below you can see the flowers of the mask. 
After i used all the different sprays combined with the gold paint it gives a very cool effect.

An angel has wings, so i added them on the page and gave it a funky kick.

Before i added the chipboard below the picture i used it as a mask on the page.
The black below the chipboard is the melted thick embossing enamel.
 It was a left over from another project and i just melted it in my melting pot and made this design.


It is a great challenge to really go crazy and to think out of the box!!

Get creative "let get stamping!"

Good evening ladies, 

My post today for Get creative is very late as i was not feeling well today. 
I think the rain, rain and more rain here in Holland is not helping me either. 

But my card for Get Creative today is very bright!!
The challenge for today is to use a stamp you never used before?

I made quit a mess with this card......
I sprayed and
sprayed and
sprayed away with dylusions.

I just love this stuff and you will see it in a lot of my work from now on!

Mostlikely you will or will not see it but i also used a lot of different wasi tapes.

With this shot from the side it is better to see the different tapes.

This is it for me today ladies, short but sweet.... i am heading back to bed again.
Thanks for stopping by,
