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…

CAS Christmas card with Stella

So my thing this year for Christmas cards seems to be CAS and white. A lot of white and a bit of glitter. For this card I’ve used an adorable image, called Winter Stella, from Make it Crafty which my sister so kindly handcut for me. A small white border has been left around the image as I thought it looked nicer that way, apart from around her feet. That is because I wanted to draw the shadow on the card base itself and not have it as a part of the coloured image.

The sentiment means “Christmas greeting from us to you” and is by Norsk Stempelblad.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E21, E04, (hair) BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, (jacket and shoes) R22, R24, R27, R59, (dress and bottom of the hat) E41, E43, E44, E47, (hat and scarf) YG01, YG03, YG63, YG67, W0, W1, W2, (ground) W5, W3, W2, W1, W0 + white gel pen

Shy violet and frustration-inked background

Have you ever been so stuck on a card that you have fuzzy cut it twice? Once with a border and once without? And then been so frustrated on what to do with the actual that you’re almost just throwing away the image? Well this happened to me, on this card. It’s possible because it is yellow. I am not very good with yellow. So how did it end up as a card?

Well… I got out one of my copic refill ink bottles and just tossed some ink down on the blank card, then I got a cotton pad which I poured more ink on and just rubbed it on the white background. And there we go. It wasn’t supposed to be pretty, or planned, or anything. In fact I liked how it just showed my frustration somewhat, hahaha. I made a sentiment text and printed it out and layered it between the inked background and the coloured image.

A perfectly reasonable way to react when you cannot think of what to do, right? haha. I really quite like it, though, and I will definitely do more cards like it. Although… it will be more intentional next time! Maybe I should do a tutorial on it then…

And the image? That is Shy Violet by Tiddly Inks. The card is for the new Tiddly Inks anything goes challenge. Come join in, will you?

After the vows

Did you know that Tiddly Inks recently released not one, but two(!) new gorgeous wedding images!? This blog of mine is already full of the ones I’ve made with the previous images, and I’ve gone on a spree colouring up these new ones also. They’re so much fun and I love making wedding cards!

I decided on another CAS card because I think they’re the best way to show off new images. This one is called After The Vows and is coloured in with copics. As always I’ll find the colours below. I made the text into a sort of frame and then I put it all with a red frame around it also.

To accentuate the veil I used glitter glue on the lines. I think it turned out quite well, actually!

CAS garden wedding

Did you see I applied to join the Tiddly Inks DT for a spell again? Well guess what! Ta da! This is my first post as a part of the DT! I’m so happy. I love Tiddly Inks images and use them quite a lot. And now I got to colour a new image before it was even released! Yey!

It’s a wedding image! Garden Wedding it is called. I’ve coloured it up with copics as usual and the colours are listed at the end of the post. I’ve made it into a CAS card and did the sentiment myself. I added a plain green border around the card to give it a bit more of a summer and garden feeling.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (hair – her) E41, E43, E44, E47, E49, (hair – him) E25, E27, E29, E31, (reds) R24, R29, R89, (outfits) W0, W1, W2, W3, W5, W7, W9, (grass) YG03, YG63, YG67
