Whimsy Stamps have several new digital stamps out each month. One of the ones that were released this month is this cute little one with her cake. Her name is Princess and she’s a part of the CC Designs collection.
Pencil colouring is fun! My next pencil colouring will actually be my 10th and yesterday it was a month since I first tried coloured pencils. Not many of them have made it onto cards though, only 3 of them, of which one of them have made it onto the blog so far. I find it quite different to make cards with craft as the base colour instead of white, but I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it soon!
This time I’ve made a Christmas card using a penguin with candy cane by Whimsy Stamps, it’s in the Crissy Armstrong collection. Isn’t he adorable? As I wrote in the first paragraph, I haven’t made many cards using my pencil colourings, so for this one I took a page out of Elin‘s book. She’s the only one I know who makes clusters of paper scraps like this and I like it, so I thought I’d try it myself. I think it works well for my card!
I use prisma color premier pencils.
For today’s card I’ve tried something a bit different… I’ve drawn my own tree! I was inspired by the tree from Simon Says Stamp that I posted a card with a few days ago. It seemed a bit odd having the kids on a swing swinging from nothing, so I got my multiliner out and sorted them out a tree to swing from. I’m quite happy with how it turned out.
I made my own sentiment as well, which I printed along with the kids stamp. The kids on the swing stamp is from Lili of the Valley by the way. They have a few different versions of couples of a swing, and they’re all precious! I decided to just keep the card simple.
It’s time for my inspirational card for this month’s Copic Marker Norge challenge. Our theme this month is special occasions focusing on christenings, confirmations and weddings. I opted for a digital stamp by Mo’s Digital Pencil and made a christening card for a baby girl. I’m not a massive fan of cards with pink upon pink so I opted for a few different colours in the papirs and on the embellishments.
The papers I’ve used are from Maja Design and Papirdesign, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and other bits from my stash.
Copics used: N0, N1, N3, E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, E41, E42, E43, E44, RV00, RV02, RV17, RV32, RV34
I made a really fun and colourful card for the latest Lili of the Valley stamp release. The new boy stamps are adorable, and I love this little one riding on a dinosaur with loads of presents and a little cupcake at the tip of the dinosaur’s tail!
The card is kept simple. I used distress inks to create a matching panel to have on the side of the coloured image and put the sentiment stamp on bright orange card stock. Because birthday cards are supposed to be fun, right?
