A silver green Christmas - VMCdesigns

A silver green Christmas




By now you all know that with the DT Team from Hobby Alternatief we get a sketch every month to work from, this time we had one as well.
This time I have chosen to make a silver green Christmas card.
I’m still sorry for my short blogposts from the past weeks, I still have to be careful using my left hand and writing two blogposts is to much for my hand at the moment. I will be writing longer posts again when my hand is healed, which I hope won’t be to long. You can read this post in dutch at my HA Blog, I have written more details in there for when you want to know more and the measurements. To translate it to english or any other language you can use “Google Translate”.






Feel free to leave a comment here, on my other blog or on the posts of the other DT members. It is highly appreciated.

An unusual Christmas card

A few weeks ago I made an unusual Christmas card, I made some “pressed” paper, just to try it out some time. Not the way it was made years ago but in a surprisingly easy way.I like the pressed paper and the pattern in it so much that I turned it into a Christmas card.
One of the DT members liked my card so much and asked me to write a blogpost about it. Sorry for my short blogposts from the past weeks, I have broken one of the middle bones in my left hand and writing two blogposts is to much for my hand at the moment. I will be writing longer posts again when my hand is healed. You can read this post following the link

From vintage tablecloth to ....... - VMCdesigns

From vintage tablecloth to .......



Years ago I had a vintage tablecloth, that had seen better days and was beyond repairs. I had cut it into pieces to keep the little Dutch landscape images it had, with the intention to use them in a project some day. Well that day finally arrived, almost 20 years




One of those images, they where all in Delfts Blauw (blue), had a little windmill on it.
It couldn’t get more Dutch then this.
So I turned the little piece of fabric into a greeting card.

Recycled fall card


 Is there anything more beautiful then the colours of the leaves before they fall. I made this card with Autumn in my mind, I used several recycled materials in it. Some you normally wouldn't use. It took a long time for the glue that I used to dry but I'm happy with the end result .......

There is nothing more fun then trying out things, especially when they turn out right. This was the case with these DIY stamps that I made for this weeks assignment of Hobby Alternatief I have always wanted to try to stamp with painters tape and now was the perfect time to give it a go.

Christmas card in 3 colours. 





A while ago Willie and Anita form Hobby Alternatief asked us to choose 2 colours with my base colour being white. It was a nice surprise, we "had" to make a christmas card with only 3 colours. The usual christmas colours where already spoken for so I choose the white, as base colour

Sketch: world animal day



We received a sketch again at Hobby Alternatief but this time it had a catch. We had to make a card for world animal day for next month the 4th. My luck I have bought tons of animal stamps and dies in the past 2 year. For this card I decided to use one of my cat themed stamp sets.

Do you want to know more and see the card I made? Then just have a peek with the link below.
