Soft blues

Here is the card I made for the most recent Art by Mi Ran facebook anything goes challenge that started almost two weeks ago. As my mojo isn’t been playing along for a while, I decided to use one of my favourite images, Rora and Butterfly.

The paper is scraps I had laying about which I roughed up the edged of and layered along with some ribbon, lace and cheese cloth. The lace and pearls are from Live and Love Crafts, as the blue flowers whereas the white rosebuds are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The sentiments are stamps from Lili of the Valley and Make it Crafty.

Twin girls

When I was asked to make this card I was so thrilled it was two twin baby girls! I’ve made a few twin cards before, but not one I could make super girly and pink and frilly and pretty! I took a while to find the right image, but when I came across this Mo Manning image, I simply had to have it! I coloured it in with copics.

As for all the goodies on the card: I have used Noor Design dies for the butterflies, edge border and leaves, Live and Love Crafts for the lace and berry flower, Wild Orchid Crafts for the remaining flowers.

Fairy Sunny Fabby Day

It’s Friday. Well, no, it’s not. But it was Friday very recently! That means Fab Friday with the Tiddly Inkers and this was my contribution for this fortnight, using the adorable Fairy Sunny Day. Everyone else were doing winter and Christmas themed cards, so I decided to be the awkward one and go spring!

I have used papers and a sentiment from Lili of the Valley, Noor Design dies, lace and pearls from Live and Love Crafts and of course flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Shy Violet

It is Tuesday and time for a new Tiddly Inks challenge. This time it is anything goes!! How easy, right?! Or in my case, super hard! I spend far less time choosing an image when there’s a specific theme, than I do when I can choose whatever I want. I am awkward though, I know…

In the end, the decision fell on Shy Violet. The listed stamp is not just one, but two stamps. I used the other stamp, the flower, for my release card, and I thought it was time to use this cutie as well! All coloured in with Copics, of course. I went for a rather pale look for once, which I tend to find hard to do.

The papers are Lili of the Valley which I cut out using GoKreate dies and distressed the edges with purple. To jazz it up a bit I used extra distress ink on the second background and added frantage to some of the layers. The decorations are made with various goodies from Noor Design (the butterflies), Wild Orchid Crafts (the flowers) and Live and Love Crafts (the pearl chain, the berry flower and the lace). The ribbon I purchased online from a dress shop. Isn’t it pretty?!

Time for an imageless card

It has been a long time since I posted a card with a pre-coloured image, but it has been even longer since I posted one without an image on it at all. In fact, I don’t remember when that even was. That means I am due to post one, I am sure!!

Here is a card I made for my aunt’s 50th birthday. One of the blogs I admire is by Klaudia and her posts inspired me to make this card. Check out the totally awesome stuff on her blog.

I roughed up the paper, which is solid purple card and Maja Design, to give it a shabby feel. All the butterflies and leaves are made using Noor Design dies. The numbers are using QuicKutz dies whereas all the flowers are by Wild Orchid Craft apart from the berry looking ones which are from Live and Love Crafts. LLC is also the place where I purchased the lace.
