Magical dragons

There is a 30 day colouring challenge going on, hosted by Kathy of The Daily Marker. At the start of this challenge I saw loads of cute dragons and decided that of course I needed them, too! They seemed a bit hard to get a hold of, so I quickly just gave up and figured it could wait. A few days later they appeared in the post, as an “early birthday present”. Lucky me! I’m definitely keeping this guy, he understands me so well! haha.

I coloured the My Favorite Things dragons up with Copics and then cut them out by hand. Then I decided that for the first time ever I was going to make a proper stamped card! Yikes! I used two border stamps by Neat and Tangled (aren’t they great?!), and a cloud stamp by Panduro, and possibly for the first time ever used several ink pads for stamping on one project! About time, right?! Then I put it all on a Maja Design for the card base. The sentiment is also by MFT. It was a lot of fun to do, but I need more practice for sure. But hey, got to start somewhere!

Copics used: (purple dragon) V09, V12, V15, V17, Y13, Y19, E97, YG01, YG13, YG67, (green dragon) YR04, YR07, Y13, Y19, YG01, YG13, YG67, RV00, RV02, RV04

Sleepy dragon

It has been quiet from me the past few days as I have decided to do my Christmas shopping early this year. Well… start on it early anyway. So Manchester with its Christmas markets, Arndale Centre and Trafford Centre, as well as a trip to Blackburn is taking up most of my week! I have actually gotten a good start on the gift shopping as well, yey! Anyway, because there are Christmas decorations everywhere already, Christmas Carols played over the speakers and Christmas films on the TV, my card today is perhaps as far away from Christmas as it gets!

I have coloured in this adorable Sylvia Zet Wee Stamps dragon copics. The ribbons are from the Hobby House, the background paper is Papermania, the sentiment is Kort&Godt, the flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts and I believe the die is a QuicKutz one.

The various bits will be linked up when I get back home at the end of next week!

Dragon with cupcake

Today we have yet another card I made a couple of months ago when I was on my last card making spree. I have still not had time to make any more, so I’m glad I got so many done in August. It looks like I might not have time to make anything until mid December, but I hope I am wrong. Anyway, here is the card.

Balloons and dragon

Father’s day is approaching fast in the UK. Here we don’t get it until November! The card I made is for my boyfriend’s dad. I wanted to avoid the usual colours of blues, greens and browns, but still keep it from being a girly card. It turned out to be easier than I had anticipated.

Elephant love

A couple of months ago, after I had shown a friend one of the new stamps I was looking at purchasing, he asked if I could make a card for him to give away. As always I felt up for the challenge, so I asked what sort of things he wanted on it. The unusual request included elephant, dragon and pink. Slightly puzzled at how I would pull this one I went to work making this card.
