Zva Winners, Xmas Cards & Sketchy Wednesday

Good morning! Zva winners have been chosen and their name will be announced sometime today on the following blogs:

Teri
Hilde
Lynn M.
Lynn G.
Anabelle

We had a ball and we hope that you did as well. Thank you SO MUCH for visiting my blog. Please keep an eye out for another Zva Creative Blog Hop in the future.

It has been ages ago since I played along with Card Patterns. I check their new sketch every week, but I hardly have time to play along with my favorite challenge blogs. Too many things on my to do list and too little time. Earlier this week I played with my new Papertrey Ink stamps and made two cards with the lovely Holiday Button Bits stamp set. I {heart} buttons, so this is a great stamp set for me. The first card is based on Card Patterns' Sketch 44. I am not completely satisfied about this card as the reds of the ribbon, buttons and patterned paper don't really match, but I didn't have the perfect matching reds in my stash.



Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (kraft), Papertrey Ink (rustic cream) Patterned paper: Scenic Route Roxbury Buttons: Buttons Galore & More Ribbon: local haberdashery Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (Holiday Button Bits, Signature Christmas) Ink: Papertrey Ink (Ripe Avocado, Dark Chocolate, Vintage Dye Duo) Tools: Martha Stewart Embossed Scallop edge punch, We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper

And here's another card that I created with my Papertrey Ink stamp sets. It's a 4 x 4" card.



Supplies: Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (vintage cream, rustic cream) Patterned paper: Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly Buttons: Papertrey Ink (Holiday Mix) Twine: Papertrey Ink Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (Holiday Button Bits, Signature Christmas, Vintage Labels) Ink: Papertrey Ink (Ocean Tides, Dark Chocolate, Vintage Dye Duo) Tools: Martha Stewart Embossed Scallop edge punch, Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels One, sewing machine

On December 1st the website www.truikebron.com was launched. You can find free downloads, sketches, tricks and fun projects on the (Dutch) website. One of the items on the website is Sketchy Wednesday. I did the design for today's sketch. I also made a layout and card based on my own sketch. Wanna see my projects? Hop on over here. Click on the sketch to download the pdf file.

Well, that's all for today. Have a wonderful day!

De kleur is misschien niet helemaal hetzelfde, maar het is nog steeds een plaatje. Die stempels zijn inderdaad erg leuk. xox

Harriët said...

Ik heb net even op de site van Card Patterns gekeken.Leuke sketches maar de kaarten die er vervolgens mee worden gemaakt zijn niet echt mijn ding.Dan steekt jouw kaart er echt er met kop en schouders boven uit!!!

Groetjes,
Harriët

I love the contrast of the reds on the first card! The osft palette on the second is so nice! Great cards!

Niet tevreden? Ik vind ze allebei supermooi! En juist leuk dat je twee verschillende kleuren rood gebruikt hebt. Ik ga meteen een kijkje nemen op het blog van Truike. Ben benieuwd:)
