I have finally gotten into the habit of doing more blog posts! Today I’d like to show off another shaped card I made for a confirmation recently.
Oh, and on a side note.. I have finally added blog to Facebook as well, so if you’d like to follow it, here is the a link: Lizland on Facebook
This is the first time I have coloured up one of Jeremiah Ketner‘s lovely images, called Mornings, and it certainly won’t be the last! I used copics to colour it in and then dabbed a bit of distress ink around the image. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts; the lace is also from LLC. I have used dies and punches from Noor Design, Martha Stewart and Memory Box, as well as Go Kreate to make the card shape.
This card has been entered into the following challenges:
Tiddly Inks is having a new release today and it’s so cuuuute!! Cuteness overload in fact! Then again, when isn’ti it?! I got to play around with a couple of the images and made a CAS card.
I coloured it all in with copics and made some grass and sky to give it more a scene feel. I rately colour something this small so it was a fun challenge! I am quite pleased with how it turned out. The paper in the top right is by Lili of the Valley. If you cannot read the text properly it says: “My brother has the best sister in the world”. It is true!
I had an interesting card request last month. It had to be treehouse themed and it went from floral with lots of details to reasonably simple and almost CAS. It was fun though, the person requesting knew what they wanted and it’s nice to have someone else’s actual opinion instead of ‘oh just do what you think is best’. That is probably why this card is different compared to what I normal do. However, I did have a lot of fun making it and love how it turned out!
For this card I used a Just Inklined image which I coloured in with copic markers. I am very pleased with how the colouring turned out to be honest. I haven’t really coloured that kind of image before; so far I have mostly stuck with people! The dies are from Noor Design and Quick Kutz and I used some Martha Stewart punchers as well.
I made this card to showcase one of Mi Ran‘s latest images. It is called Christmas Morning. As soon as I saw it I knew exactly how I wanted the card to look! It would fit perfect within a window-like card similar to what Tracy Payne of Noor Design UK did for her vintage card course in Norway earlier this month. So that is what I did!
For the card base I used Go Kreate dies, which I painted with acrylic paint around the edge. The papers are by Panduro and Pion. Everything is coloured in with Copic makers and I used glitter glue for the gold effect on the tree. All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the tree and reindeer dies are from Noor Design. The snowflake border is made with a Tim Holtz die and I used lace from KaBoks to make the curtains.
Time for a new Tiddly Inks Challenge and the theme is Let’s Get Krafty: meaning using this brown paper I have used on my card. I was very unsure of what this challenge meant as I was not very familiar with Kraft and I decided the best way for me to follow the theme was to do a CAS card!
I have used one of my favourite Tiddly Inks stamps: Eat More Cake. It is super adorable and has the perfect name, don’t you think?! I coloured it in with copics, cut it using scissors (which I very rarely do) and used foam stickers to lift her off the craft paper a little. I then wrote a sentiment around the edge of the card and drew in some more little bits for fun!
