My favorite astronaut

I had a little bit of time to craft over Easter, so I even had time to make a card by just playing around after I decided I wanted to enter the current sketch challenge at MFT Stamps. I figured it was time for me to finally use the astronaut stamp set that I’ve had for some time so with that in mind I started to play around with a bunch of my distress oxides. It was a lot of fun to make and I really like how it turned out! Here is the result:

Copics used: (grey) N1, N3, N5, N7, (blue) B00, (skin) E0000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E42, E43, E44, (green) YG17, YG23, G94, (orange) YR07, YR15, YR20, E08

This card has been entered into the following challenge:

MFT Stamps – Sketch #433

A tall card with the number in focus

No colouring today. I’ve made a card for someone at work. I used a couple of different Maja Design papers along with some chipboard for decorations. A bit of lace and a ribbon together with some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts.

Overview pages getting updated

I have just gotten through updating the overview page of the cards (and a couple of other things) I made last year. There is so much stuff on that page so it’s clearly been my most productive year so far. It’s nearly double what I’ve made any other year! I don’t think I’ll be able to keep up that pace ever again, haha. You can view the completed page here: Cards 2018.

I’ve also started on the page for the projects I’m making this year. This page will be up to date by the end of the Easter holidays. You can find that page here: Cards 2019.

Thank you all for you patience. Hopefully this will make it easy to keep browsing through my cards and find whatever you may be on the lookout for.

Happy Easter to you all!

edit (later same day): The 2019 page is up to date now as well.

LotV Sunny Thoughts

Guess what?! I’ve gotten a spot on the Lili of the Valley design team! In December they had a DT call and even though it was a terrible time for me to sign up for a new DT I simply had to apply. LotV is one of the first stamp companies I bought and I have loads of their rubber stamps from a few years back. My card making sort of started with these and I’ve continued to use their stamps since, so yeah, it was a big deal for me! And they were super kind and let me start a bit later due to everything that was going to happen at the start of the year.

The first card I’m going to show you as a DT is a card I made for a card swap they were hosting. I used one of the stamps from their newest release. You can find it both on a A5 rubber stamp sheet as well as a digital stamp. The sentiment is also LotV.

I’ve used a La-La Land Crafts heart die, heart and frame chipboard I’ve had forever, some Maja Design paper and various ribbon, lace and cheese cloth.

Copics used: (watering can) N0, N1, N3, N5, (flowers) RV52, RV55, RV09, Y19, V15, V17, (bear) E41, E42, E43, (grass and leaves) G03, G28, YG61, YG63, YG97, G21, G82, G40
