Hello and welcome to my little place in the online card making community. This is the first post for my site. My name is Heidi and I live in the Netherlands. In my spare time I love to make cards for which I preferably like to use coloured images. I colour with about every medium I can lay my hands on.
Feel free to browse my website and enjoy your stay!
If you have any questions or you want to contact me you can use the "Contact Form" under the "About"- tab.
Under the "Home"- tab you can find all the cards that I make and other posts that I write. Some cards or posts are also mentioned in the different categories. I will tell a little about each category underneath.
I feel Cards for Men are often a little harder to make then cards for us women: I feel I can't put too much bling on a guy card and the card still has to be pretty and nice in a guy way and not boring in my opinion (read: fun to make)!
My Cards for Men style I would define as retro or vintage. It's a versatile category and I can use different materials, dies and stamps that go well together. If you want to see more of these cards you can go to the "Cards for Men"- tab. http://www.makeyourlifecolourful.com/handmade-cards-for-men
My first love in card making is colouring but sometimes I use a specific technique that I want to highlight: you can find more about certain techniques I use under the "How To"-tab. http://www.makeyourlifecolourful.com/how-to
If you have any questions about these techniques or when you have a question about a technique you have seen me use on another card and the explanation in the post about that card is not sufficient or you would want to know more than contact me and I will write a post about that technique.
There are a lot of crafting supplies around these days and some of them are more pricey then others and some are more versatile then others. There are supplies that I seem to use a lot and I have made a special category where I talk a little about these supplies. You can find them under the "Handy Crafty Things"- tab. http://www.makeyourlifecolourful.com/handy-crafty-things
More recently I discovered mixed media art, you can find whatever creations I made under the "Mixed Media"-tab.
Under the "Gallery"- tab (http://www.makeyourlifecolourful.com/handmade-cards-gallery) you can find pictures of cards that I made before I had this website. You can click on the images to enlarge and read what supplies I used. This also is a possibility for you to see if you like my style.
If you like my style and want to see more you can fill in your details on the "Home"-tab on the right hand site to subscribe to my posts (http://www.makeyourlifecolourful.com/ ). You will receive an email whenever I place a new card on this website.
I hope you enjoy your stay and I would love to hear from you if you have any questions, comments or suggestions!
Thank you for spending time with me.
