Baby girl in buggy

I seem to very rarely get to make baby cards for baby girl; it’s always boys, boys and more boys. Then suddenly I got asked to do two almost at the same time. As with the other card I’ve chosen to hide the name of the baby.

The image I’ve used on this is by Wee Stamps. Isn’t it cute? I’m quite happy with the shading on it and tried to keep it soft and simple. I made a border around the image using flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, some cheese close and punched out some leaves and butterflies with Martha Stewart punchers.

Here is another photo of the card laying down

A wee frosty snowman

It’s snowing today. That’s a pretty perfect backdrop for the current theme at Copic Marker Norge: Winter.

A couple of months ago I got a semi-challenge to colour up a Wee Stamps image. As it’s been a while since I’ve coloured one of hers, at least that have ended up here on the blog, I decided it was time. I chose this adorable snowman. I’ve used some Martha Stewart punchers, Noor Design and Maja Design papers, distress ink and Live and Love Crafts lace.

Here is another photo.

Winter walk with friends

Keeping with the Christmas card theme, to get them all posted up. I delayed posting them at the start of December, as I didn’t want to put them up before giving them away, and then Christmas came around and I wasn’t online much for two weeks. Oh well. Time to catch up!

This one is made with a Sylvia Zet digital image. She has unfortunately closed down her online shop and her images are now only available in pre-coloured versions or rubber stamps. I wish I had paid more attention and purchased some more before she took the shop down.. Oh well. I have coloured it in with copics. The flowers are all Wild Orchid crafts, and I have used Martha Stewart punchers, glitter glue, frantage and various bits from my stash.card306_1

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!

 

Winter fairy

I have finally started properly on Alyce’s Skin and Hair class over at Kit and Clowder. Let me just say the classes are wonderful. I am so much happier with my colouring and it is so much more fun making cards with images I have coloured myself now. I might even have to get rid of most of the pre-coloured toppers I’ve got!

Today I have decided to put up a card I made today. That is the second time in a short while I’ve been so eager to put up what I’ve coloured that I’ve taken a photo and added it to the blog straight away! Funnily enough, the previous one was also a blue winter card… Any guess what I love making most… lol.

I have used a Wee Stamps image, by Sylvia Zet, called Iris. I have coloured her in with copics with various B00s, Cs, E40s and E00s. The doily is from Papermania, the brown paper is from Tim Holtz, as are the snowflake die and the blue distress ink. The lace is from a local shop and the ribbon from a site where I ordered a dress.. The blue paper is from Papirdesign and the flowers are, as always, from Wild Orchid Crafts. I also added some dark blue glitter to the frantage.
