3. James the bear Lollipop

Throughout the month there will be non-card projects, too. I’ve had fun experimenting and trying to make new things the past couple of months. One of the things I’ve tried to make is a so-called Lollipop card. I’ve seen a few of them around and decided to make one myself. As usual I didn’t look at any tutorials, but decided to just play around to see if I could make one. I think it turned out alright, too.

The image I coloured is one of my first stamps. It’s James the Bear from Lili of the Valley where he’s carrying presents. It’s fun to make at least one Christmas project with him every year.

I’ve used papers from Maja Design, dies from Noor Design, some frantage, distress inks and white acrylic paint.

This is a side on view and a photo of how the backside looks. The sentiment stamp is from Norsk Stempelblad.


Copics used: (bear) E41, E42, E43, E44, E47, (red) R22, R24, R27, R59, (green) YG61, YG63, YG67, (grey) W1, W2, W5

Ketner’s Mornings

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:

Creative Inspirations – Stars and/or stripes
Papertake Weekly – Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion Challenges – Anything Goes

Edit: I got a top 3 in one of the challenges I entered: thank you so much!


Pressies for you

Here is a card I made at the start of the year. Yes… I am that far behind in posting cards up. However, I shall try to schedule up some posts this week to try to get up to date!

I have used frantage, copics and distress ink for the effects on the image and the rest of the card. The borders are made using a Noor Design die, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the stamp is Wild Rose Studio. I wanted mostly blue and browns for the card, but as the recipient is a woman, I couldn’t help by add a dash of pink!
