Coffee Lovers Winter blog hop day 6

Welcome to day 6 of the 
Make a Winter themed card with coffee/tea/cocoa and
link your post to the main blog and you have a chance of
winning one of the many prizes given by some wonderful 
sponsors to the hop.

Today is the first day of Hanukkah and so I  came up with this 
fun coffee gift bag with chocolate M&M's inside.
There is also a Christmas version on my other blog HERE.

These bags start out with cutting the large cup from the
Coffee Café thinlit set. I choose two colors of blue
and contrasting sleeves.

To decorate the sleeves I added a silver ribbon and next
 I cut a scalop silver circle and added the silver embossed 
stamped image on top. These images are from some older sets.
Then cut out and added with foam tape to the silver circle.
You see a little box between both cups for adding the 
goodies. For this little box you need a piece of paper
of  3,5 x 4 3/4 inch and you score the short side
at 3/8 - 1 1/8 - 2 3/8 - 3 1/8 inch. For the long side you
score at 2 an 2 3/4 inch.
When you finisch adding the box, you can add a
handle to the box. I had a strip of 9 x 6/8 inch and
glue this to the left and right side of the box.

I used the tiny cup die to make little tags for the 
boxes and to write the wish on it. Attached
with a piece of baker's twine.


Wishing all my Jewish stamping friends and my
coffee/tea/cocoa friends
Thank you for looking
and have a latte creative day!

Hanukkah Blog Hop


Welcome to the Hanukkah Blog Hop
organized by a bunch of Jewish Stampin'Up! demo's.
We like to share our ideas for Hannukah with you.
I hope you have arrived here from 
and seen her beautiful artwork.

I have two cards and a little treat box. for you.

For my projects I used the following sets:
So here is te template of the sweater if you like to
case my card.

I started with stamping the candleholder with night of navy ink
on the lighter blue paper. Coloring the candles with
a white pen and the flames with the new markers.
Then I cut out the image and I put it on the sweater
(cut out from navy night paper) abd traced the image with 
a white pen so it looked like stitches. I also
drew the borders of the sweater by hand. Now it is time
to roll the sweater through the bigshot with
the cable knit folder. When done attache the
candle holder abd stick the sweater to your card.

To be honest I started out making this card.
Then I realized the T-shirt and framelit where
from an older catalogue (summer 2016) and 
not in in this years  the main catalgue,
 but I still wanted to share this card with you.



And here is the treat box. Below you find the template for 
scoring and cutting. I used the same materials as for the card.
It is really a very easy box to make.
I used the label punch  for the window,
but you can also make an oval or 
circle window if you like. It depends on what 
you have too.
This little box holds 3 small bard of chocolate.
The doves also come from the Seasonal Lantern
stamp set.

I want to contribute my card
to this weeks color challenge at

And now it is time to move to the next blog.
Go and see what 
has in store for you.




Thank you so much for looking
and have a creative day!

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop: day 6

Here are my cards for day 6 of the
and this time I played with the wonderful
coffee  set by Stampin'Up!
called Coffee Café.
It comes also with a set of thinlits,
wonderful papers and matching ribbons.
You can see all the products here.

For this card I used the design paper
in the background and the steam is made with
with thinlits from an older set called Swirly Scribles
(not available anymore). I used the leaves
from this set as well. 

I had some great helpers when I had to use
my big shot to cut out to coffee cup with
the thinlits.

For my second card I also used the 
You've got Style stamp set (see here).
I think this old lady is so much fun to use.
She is colored with pencil and cut out with
 scissors. The cup is decorated with the
leaves that are punched out with the leaf
punch that you can find in the new 
autumn/winter catalogue.
Design paper from the Coffee Café in
the background.

Thank you for looking and
have a latte creative day!

Rosh Hashanah 2017/ Jewish New Year


As the Jewish New Year is around the corner
on September 21 and 22 some of us Jewish Stampin'Up!
demos have come together to make this blog hop for you
to get inspired for diy New Year cards. So get  inspired!

I hope you have arrived here from 
and were surprised by her wonderful ideas.

So I have 3 cards for you today.
These cards are all totally different
and not the usual New Year cards.

For card #1 I used the dies of the Number of Years set
to make up the Jewish year. The paper in the background
is from the new coffee set and the apples are punched out
with the Tree Builder punch. The sentiment is from a
very old Stampin'Up! set.
The sentiment is cut out with the oval die from the
stiched shapes framelits set.

Card #2 is my favorite. When I saw this new
I've got Style stampset it made be think about an old
record I have called "You don't have to be Jewish".
A fun recored with Jewish cabaret pieces, hilarious.
This woman makes me think of these typical Jewish old ladies.

I colored the image with watercolor pencils.
The paper is from the Bundele of Love Designers 
Series papers.The top sentiment is from my stash.
The flowers - gold embossed with a sticky pearl -
is from the beautiful Colorful Seasons set.


Card #3 has to do with my coffee addiction.
I am so happy with the new coffee set in the
main catalogue and now there is Merry Café
in the Seasonal catalogue as well.
The leaves of the apple are made with the Lemon
builder punch and the apple is the circle from 
the Swirly Bird set. 

I was thinking of coffee and honey cake
and that made me think of the stamp on the 
A little Wild stempset: the beehive and the bees,
making the honey for my cake!

For more ideas
please hop over to 
and see what she has come up with.

Wishing you all a year of
health and happiness
and may there be a little bit more Peace.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

Colorful Seasons

Ja heerlijk stempelen met mijn nieuwe stempels
uit de nieuwe catalogus van Stampin'Up! 2017-2018.

Yes, it is wonderful to stamp with my new stamps from

Deze week wil ik jullie laten zien wat een geweldig
leuke set de Colorful Seasons is. Nu met het mooie
weerkun je prachtig bijpassende kaarten maken.

This week I want to share with you cards made with
the Colorful Seasons set. With the lovely weather outside
you can make great matching cards.

Vandaag een eenvoudige elegante kaart met een achtergrond
van inkt en een sentiment gestempeld. Je noemt dat de 
watercolor smoosh technique. Je doet wat inkt van je inktkussen 
op een acryl sheet, spuit wat water erop en dep het op je kaart.

Today I made a simple, but elegant card with a inky background
and a lovely sentiment. For the background you just add ink
to an acrylic sheet and ad a few drops of water. Now dab this on 
your card. This is caled the Watercolor Smoosh technique.
Bij deze set hoort ook een set van thinlits, 
de Seasonal Layers. Deze heb ik gebruikt om de
stoelen uit te snijden die je op deze kaart zie.
Over deze set is er een video gemaakt die je
hieronder kan zien.

For this set there is also a set of thinlits called
Seasonal Layers. With this set I cut the lovely chairs
to go on this card. There is a lovely video made
about this set that you can see below.



Mocht je deze set willen aanschaffen,
stuur me een mailtje, dan bestel ik hem voor je.

Geniet van het mooie weer en maak 
er een creatieve dag van!

Enjoy the beautiful weather
and have a creative day!
