Cake? Did someone say cake?!

Maybe there’s been too many Christmas cards on my blog lately. I can assure you that there are plenty more to come at least. So why not break it up a little with a cake? A massively huge chocolate cake at that.

The image is by Mo’s Digital Pencil and to no one’s surprise it was coloured in with Copic markers. It ended up as yet another CAS card.

This is how the card looks when stood up, open.

Here it is laying down. I added the strip of paper with printed text just on the side inside the card so the inside part is slightly wider than the front is.

At a different angle as usual! And a little closer…

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (hair) E08, E18, E19, E97, (white) W0, W1, W2, W3, W5, (ground) C1, C3, C5, (dress) V01, V04, V06, V09, (cake) V01, E43, E47, E49

Tall cake

I’ve been enjoying colouring up images by Mo’s Digital Pencil the past couple of weeks. This tall cake one I bought specifically to use for a couple of birthday cards I had coming up. Isn’t she the best?!

For the cake my sister insisted I needed to have some glitter. I used mostly transparent glitter, but with a bace layer of R00 and R12. As you can see from the colour list below, you don’t need to use a lot of Copics to colour up a pretty image and make it into a card. This time I stuck with just 2 colours for most of it, sometimes 3 if I was colouring up bigger areas. It was fun colouring up a lighter image again after the very bright contrast ones I’ve done in the past few blog posts!

I’ve used a fair few dies on this card: butterfly and leaf die by Precious Marieke, border die by La-La Land, alphabet die by Kaboks and gratulerer by Papirdesign. The flowers are as usual by Wild Orchid Crafts. And I used a bit of white acrylic paint around the edges of most elements.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (hair) E25, E29, E31, (clothes) W1, W3, YG01, YG03, YG67, (cake) E41, E43, R00, R12, Y13, YG16, (plate) C1, C3

Birthday cake

I have lost my motivation, completely. I have managed to make a handful of cards the past month, but that is about it. I’ve not felt like updating the blog, even though I have had photos ready to put up. However, it is time to snap out of it and carry on. So here is another card.

I have used a pre-coloured topper by Lili of the Valley, as well as lots of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. Most of the other stuff is bits I have had laying about for quite a while, and lost the lables a long time ago.

Bowl of sweets

Some co-workers requested a card a couple of months ago (yes, I am that far behind on posting cards here now..) for another co-worker. It was to be pink and sweet and lovely. This is what I came up with.

I have used a pre-coloured toppers from Lili of the Valley; from one of their gorgeous coloured pads. Most of the other products are from Wild Orchid Crafts, Martha Stewart and Papermania.
