Wryn birthday girl

A little girl liked my lollipop Christmas cards, so when her birthday was coming up, I had to make one of these for her! I used Wryn Birthday Girl by Tiddly Inks and coloured it up with Copics. A little bit of glitter was needed and she loved it!

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21,  (hair) E71, E74, E77, E79, (purples) V01, V04, V06, V09, (yellow) Y13, Y19, Y38, YR18, E08, (green) YG61, YG63, YG67, (ground) W1, W3, W5

Fairy Sunny Day “photos” card

Do you always colour the images as they were when you bought them? Or do you dare to experiment? To crop, resize and make something a bit different? Christy of Tiddly Inks asked a question that (perhaps unintentionally, haha) got me thinking a bit outside the box. I quickly made a few frames in Photoshop using the Fairy Sunny Day stamp to show what I was thinking and was instantly inspired to make a card with it.

My idea was to have several photos in a film strip type style. I aligned her slightly different in each rectangle and then cropped off what I didn’t need. For the final rectangle I zoomed in a little bit to get her nice and close. As I really enjoyed this, you will probably see me do this again!

So what is the most difficult part about using the same image several times?! Trying to colour it somewhat similar in all versions, hahaha. This is the first time I’ve coloured the same image repeatedly for one card! The hair was the most interesting! Let’s see the result.

Isn’t the chipboard perfect for this? Make it Crafty chipboards are great. I don’t know why I took so long to acquire some! I coloured it with the same colours I did her dress and then printed the sentiment directly onto the card.

Another photo, of course. Isn’t Wryn the cutest?!

Copics used: (hair) E70, E71, E74, E77, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (dress) B000, B32, B34, B37, (wings) RV00, RV02, RV04, (flowers) R24, R59, Y04, Y19, YG63, YG67, (sky) B000, B32 + blender

Maybe you’d like to try to make one as well? If you don’t know how to do the frames to put the stamps in, you can use the one I made. Click on the images to get the full size and then right click to save them to your computer. The first one is a .png with a transparent background and the second is a .jpg with a white background.

I would love it if you gave me credit and linked to my site if you decide to use one of them. Please don’t share the images, but direct people here instead. 🙂

Panda bookmark

Well, a panda hat at least! The girl I was making this for had her sixth birthday just last week and has just started reading her first proper book on her own, so of course she needed a bookmark! She requested something with a panda and when I showed her this image she screamed yes so I guess it was just what she wanted! Of course as she’d seen the sparkly dress from a couple of days ago, this dress had to sparkle too, and be pink!

The adorably cute image is by Tiddly Inks and is called Beary Sweet. Such a perfect name!

I will not show the back side of it as it has her name on it. However, I will share the quote I decided to use: ”Allt stort som skedde i världen skedde först i någon människas fantasi.” by Astrid Lindgren. It roughly translates into: “Everything great that ever happened in the world happened first in somebody’s imagination.”

Perhaps I should make myself one too. My goal this year is to read 20 books. Do you have a reading goal?

And here it is on its own.

Copics used: (hair) E71, E74, E77, E79, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (dress) RV10, RV13, RV14, RV17, R59, (white) W0, W1, W2, (black) W7, W9, (background) RV00, W1, W3, W5. + 2 different white pens.

22. Santa’s Helpers as a CAS card.

Oh my. Where has the week gone?! Thankfully I am now all done with my crafting before the holidays, but I have some cookies left to make and some presents left to buy so I have managed to save something for last minute this year, too, haha!

I have used Maja Design paper and an adorable Tiddly Inks image, Santa’s Helpers. As I’ve had such few green Christmas cards today, then that was the obvious choice. I’ve made a red glittery embossed greeting with a Norsk Stempelblad stamp.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (hair) E31, E34, E41, (greys) W2, W3, W5, W7, W9, (greens) YG61, YG63, YG67, YG99, (fur) C1, C3, (red) R22, R24, R27, R59, (yellow) Y19, YR16, E08

18. Polar bear out for a walk

Another reasonably simple card today. I have coloured up the polar bear with the boy and fox image by Tiddly Inks and cut it out by hand. It was fun colouring it in no-lines even if it had a few fiddly bits.

I have then made it look like he’s walking on snow and added some trees where I added a bit of acrylic paint to make it look like it’s been snowing. The text stamp is by Norsk Stempelblad.

Copics used: (bear) C7, W1, W2, W3, (fox) E18, E19, E97, (boy) YG01, YG03, YG63, YG67, E000, E00, E11, E42, E43, E47
