Hello there, butterfly

I went out yesterday and purchased me another Magnolia stamp, or… a few, actually! I know what I am like with rubber stamps, though, so I quickly stamped up a few of them to have them at hand before I forget all about even buying them… Before I started on the image I had decided I wanted to do one with loads of layers, and pink. Because I haven’t done pink in a while!

As usual I’ve coloured it in with Copics, the pink candi is also coloured with Copics. I’ve used a bunch of Maja Design papers, cut out the text sentiment, used a Tim Holtz charm, some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and a bit of white acrylic paint and frantage. I had to cut out the image by hand as I’d managed to stamp it up so terribly it couldn’t stay with its background, haha.

Let’s take a closer look of the girl. It was a bit fiddly to cut it out by hand!

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (hair) E41, E42, E43, E44, (white) W0, W1, W3, W5, (pink) RV00, R81, R83, R85

9. Reindeer games

I have made quite a few Christmas cards so far this year and I am actually nearly done with them all! This is one of the cards I made for my Christmas card swaps this year.

Isn’t the image cute? It is one of my favourites from Tiddly Inks. It is called Reindeer Games.

The big decoration is by Wild Orchid Crafts, the charms are from Kort og Godt and the sentiment is from Norsk Stempelblad. I’ve also used some twice, cheesecloth, acrylic paint and frantage. The shape of the card is made with Go Kreate dies.

Obviously the arrangement on the right side is a bit heavy, but charms are a great way to counterbalance the card, and the snowflake and tree fit very well.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, (hair) BV23, BV25, BV29, (reds) R22, R24, R27, R59, (brown) E41, E42, E43, E44, E47, (grey) W2, W5, (decorations) YG61, YG63, YG67, Y19, YR16) (ear) RV00, Rv23

8. Friendship

Another colouringless card today for day eight. The main focal point of the card is a text stamp from Papirdesign that I was so lucky to win on Elin‘s blog. It is a lovely text about friendship.

I have used various papers, I think they may be Pion this time, to which I have added white acrylic paint. I really do love that effect. The lace I got at Live and Love Craft, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and The Hobby House and I have used dies from Memory Box and Precious Marieke.

4. Shabby floral card

It’s been a while since I had a card without colouring on it, so let’s have one of those today! I have printed out the number and name and used those as the focal points on the card.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the ribbon I purchased when I bought a dress a while back and the lace is from Live and Love Crafts.

Let us have another photo. Here you can see the flowers and ribbon from the side.

Celebrate joyfully – flowers

Today is another break from Christmas cards with this whimsical one. I’ve used a Tiddly Inks stamp for it and coloured it in with Copics. In fact the stamp is an extra one you get if you purchase Celebrate Joyfully. The papers are various scraps I had laying about that I wanted to use up, and the sentiment is my own. I’ve used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts.

And just because I love taking photos at weird angles, you get another one!

Copics used: YG01, YG03, YG67, G99, C1, C3, Y04, Y08, Y19, R24, R27, R89
