The shy pot plant

It is time for a new challenge over at Tiddly Inks. This time it is an autumny colour collage you can use for inspiration. I’ve stuck with most of the colours, apart from maybe the orange. The stamp I decided to use for this is one of the stamps you get in the Shy Violet set. It’s been coloured in with Copics. You can find the list of colours below.

I’ve used a text sentiment from Lili of the Valley, and flowers from The Hobby House and Wild Orchid Crafts.

Copics used: (pot) E42, E43, E44, E47, E49, (table) W1, W3, W5, W7, (flower) R81, R83, R85, R89, (leaves) G40, G82, G94, G99

Kiss for the teddy bear

Time for another non-Christmas card. This is a step card made from a WhichCraft card blank and papers from Papermania. All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Cafts, the punchers are Martha Stewart, the ribbon from The Hobby House, the lace from a local shop. I have made the sentiment myself and coloured in an Elisabeth Bell image found on the art pads you can buy at The Hobby Hose. I used Copics to colour it.

The various bits will be linked up once I am back home at the end of the week

Autumnal

Time for another one I have coloured myself. An autumn one. We are mid-autumn here at the moment and it is so pretty and colourful outside. I think I have to go for a walk just to take photos of it one day next week. But yes, anyway, card.

The image I have coloured is an Elisabeth Bell one from the colouring pads at The Hobby House. I coloured it in with copics. I have used plain stock card for the corners and the brown paper is by Tim Holtz, and I don’t remember where the purple one is from. The flowers and ribbon are by Wild Orchid Crafts and the sentiment is by Kort og Godt. I have also used various dies and punches: Dienamics, Martha Stewart and QuicKutz. Ok, it’s not quite that untidy and hard to find things, but you get the gist, haha. The jeweled butterfly is purchased at a local shop.

Berry fairy

I think it is time for another card where I’ve coloured the image in myself! This one is made with an image by Sylvia Zet and Wee Stamps. I have coloured it in with copics. For once I opted for a rectangular card, I don’t seem to do that many of those… I used lots of dies for a change, spellbinders, magnolia and I wish I could remember what the swirly one is called… if anybody is wondering, just pop the question in a comment and I’ll find out! The ribbon is by The Hobby House, the punchers by Martha Stewart, the sentiment stamp by Lili of the Valley. The various flowers, pearls and doily are purchased at Wild Orchid Crafts.

Mermaid and turtle

I went through the photos I’ve taken of the cards made over this summer and realised I have made quite a few more than I had thought. This means I am miles behind posting them here on the blog, so it’s about time I upped the frequency on putting them up. The recent two-week gap in posting them was due to a holiday, and I hadn’t scheduled any. However, back to work and back to blogging this week.

This first one is inspired by summer. I have used a pre-coloured topper by The Hobby House, a Sylvia Zet image. I distress inked the image around the edge and made an easel card out of it. The flowers, ribbon and bow are all by Wild Orchid Crafts. The sea shells were bought in a shop called Black Design and the leaves were made with a Martha Stewart puncher.
