Wedding Season

Don’t you juse love weddings?! So far this year I’ve been had to make a handful of wedding cards and I love doing each one. This particular card as made with the request of matching a baby card as they were celebrating both events at the same. On the right side here you can see the baby card I made and if you click on it you will be taken to the post I wrote about that card.

This one is made with my favourite wedding image, from Tiddly Inks and as usual I’ve removed the names that were added at the bottom. It’s been coloured with Copic Markers and I’ve used various embellishments from Wild Orchid Crafts, Live and Love Crafts, Martha Stewart, as well as some acrylic paint and cheese cloth.

Here is another photo from another angle:

Copics used: W1, W2, W3, W5, W7, 100, E000, E00, E04, E11, E42, E43, E44, E47, E49, E53, E55, E57, E59

Krissy Christmas

Give me a W. Give me an O. Give me another O. What is that?! WOO! It’s Friday! Time to enjoy the weekend to the fullest. I plan to colour, catch up on TV series and just relax! Perfect!

Today we start a new anything goes challenge in the Art by Mi Ran Facebook group! The optional theme we are doing this month is “use a die cut”. I am glad it is not limited to just one though, or I would be stuck! Come along and play, won’t you?!

I decided to use Mi Ran’s super cute Krissy for my card, and of course I coloured her in with copics! I used various paper scraps which I painted with acrylic paint and I also used a snow pen by Rayher which, after ending up everywhere as the top flew off followed by its contents.., provided a nice texture. I used Martha Stewart punchers and the Noor Design tree die which I love! Apart from that I used a little card candy.

Moonflower’s Tumbelina

The lovely Anne Lise asked me to be guest designer for Barnemix again, so of course I had to say yes! The image I was given to work with is by Moonflower and is called Tumbelina. For this project we were given the theme white on white. Something which I am generally quite terrible at, but I gave it a go!

I coloured it in with copics and figured keeping it all white would be a bit dull! That is why I gave her a glow and a pink dress, but I tried to keep both her hair and the dress reasonably light, somewhat inspired by distress ink colouring actually, and I kept the flowers white. It was fun to try to colour something in lighter shades!

I have used a lot of plain card stock for the card, but a small border with a Lili of the Valley background paper. I used some lace from Kaboks, Martha Stewart punchers and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts as well as Live and Love Crafts.

Eirwen in the snow

Time for another Mi Ran progressive challenge! The name of this pretty lady is Eirwen. If you want to play along with us, simply go to our Facebook group to see all the details. If you don’t want to, then well, you’ll simply have to wait a month to get a hold of her in Mi Ran’s shop. Who’d want to wait that long, right?!

I took forever to decide which colour to do her dress in! As red was the obvious colour I wanted to pick something else. It was a fight between green and purple, and as you can see: purple won. I coloured it all in with copics.

For this card I decided to go with a lot of dies instead of a lot of flowers! All the dies on the left hand side are by Noor Design, whereas I have used a Tim Holtz snowflake die on the right and a Martha Stewart puncher for the branches. The papers used on this card are by Kaboks and Lili of the Valley. To jazz it up a bit, I’ve pained all the trees and papers with white acrylic paint to make it look like it’s been snowing. I also used white frantage on the image (which is hard to see on the white background in the photo, but it looks look on the actual card. I also added a hint of glitter to all the white puffy bits on the image. I couldn’t leave flowers off completely either, so I used a few from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Card making course with Tracy Payne

On Saturday afternoon I couldn’t shake the thought that there was something going on this weekend that I’d forgotten about. Suddenly it hit me: there is a big scrapping fair in the city, hosted by North Star Stamps, where Tracy Payne of Noor Design UK is visiting and doing courses. I’d forgotten all about it!! Oh no! I was gutted! I went to Tracy’s FB and typed a post along the lines of “Noooo, I forgot about your courses!!”. Then the sweetheart responded she had one spot left for Sunday. It was the class I had wanted the most as well! Did that make my weekend or what!! I am so happy. It is the first card making course I’ve ever attended, and I doubt it will be my last! The card on this post is what she had us making. Isn’t it the best?! I am so pleased I got to meet Tracy, she is such a lovely person!

A lot of the products is of course by Noor Design: the snowflake and mistletoe dies, the red tag, the stencils we used to cut out the window and card shape as well as the bricks, gesso and structure paste for the white elements. The papers we were provided with are by Pion, as is the adorable image. I honestly don’t know where the rest of the goodies are from, but it wouldn’t surprise me if you can get a hold of some of them at Live and Love Crafts!

And of course I made it home with a big grin on my face along with a few new goodies, including the wonderful window stencil and a few Noor Design dies!

One thing is for certain: this card is going up as one of my Christmas decorations!
