Countryside bouquet

It’s been a while since I shared a proper clean and simple card. Here I’ve coloured in an image, put it on purple card stock, added a few pearls and a sentiment. I do like them like this. The image I’ve used is from Power Poppy, Countryside Bouquet, and I’ve listed all the colours I used at the bottom of the post. This card has been made for the current moodboard challenge over at the Copic Marker Norge blog.

Copics used: (green) YG13, YG67, (yellow) Y11, Y13, Y19, Y38, (red) R22, R24, R27, R89, (orange) Y19, Y38, YR18, E08, (blue) V000, B91, B93, B97, (centre of flowers) E08, E97 (grey) W3, W7, (background) W0, W1, Y000, V000

Pink and turquoise

1st of May already! That means it’s my turn to contribute with a bit of inspiration for this month’s Moodboard Challenge over at Copic Marker Norge! I’ve primarily been inspired by the colours here, and of course the flowers. I did contemplate pink hair, but opted for a pink dress instead. I really do love pink and turquoise together. I have no idea why I don’t use it more often on cards to be honest!

For this card I’ve used a stamp from Mo’s Digital Pencil. Isn’t she lovely? I’ve coloured it in with Copics as I always do and you can find the colours at the bottom of the post. I’ve used chipboard for the leaves from Make It Crafty, a background stamp (I’ve got to say it again, I absolutely love how I can now have a gingham pattern in any colour I fancy!) and dies from La-La Land Crafts, charm and twine from Kort og Godt and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. I made the sentiment myself.

As you can see from the photo below, I’ve added the image part onto foam tape and decorated the inside a little bit to match the colours of the front. I also made a matching box for this.

Copics used: (skin) E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair and basket) E50, E51, E53, E55, E57, (pink) RV52, RV55, RV66, R39, (green) YG00, YG13, YG61, YG63, YG67, G99, (white) C1, C3

A bit of turquoise

We have a new challenge up at Copic Marker Norge and this is my inspirational card for it. On the moodboard for this month I was inspired by the colours: turquoise and white with a hint of yellow, as well the decorations and flowers. The image I chose for this is by Ching-Chou Kuik. I do love getting to make a card using my favourite colours!

I’ve used papers by Maja Design and Bazzill, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, a stamp from Noor Design to create the effect around the image which I used distress oxide ink on, a Happy Birthday stamp from My Favorite Things, and a border die from La-La Land Crafts.

Here you can see the card from a side on view. There are several elements put on foam pads to create a sense of dimension.

Here is a close-up of the flower arrangement

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (hair) E41, E42, E43, E44, (dress) BG49, BG53, BG78, G40, Y04, Y38, E97, (shadow) W0, W1, W3, W5, W7, (flowers) RV17

Clean, simple and yellow.

I’m joining in with team 1 this month for our new moodboard challenge at Copic Marker Norge. I have been quite heavily inspired and had some random impulse to just try to make most of it myself.

It is funny really… yellow must be the colour I use the least when I craft. I don’t really like it. But this, this I can live with. I think it turned out quite cool!

I’ve drawn in the background with a Copic multiliner 0.1 black. I went with the patterns and feeling I got from the moodboard. (You can see the moodboard here.) I ended up drawing tons of little lines and it was actually fun! I think I will practice this and try it again. After colouring in the border on top I coloured in the yellow with Y11 and coloured in a couple of candi to match (100 and BV25). I then drew three lines across at the bottom and then started filling it in with loads of little lines before I decided to make the bottom part of the card yellow as well.

Before I glued on the image and the candi, I printed out the sentiment I made on the PC straight onto the card base I’d coloured up. Thankfully I managed to get it where I wanted it… that could have ended quite badly, haha. Now I just need to pick out a thicker multiliner next time I am the shops so I don’t have to colour in thin lines again!

The image I’ve coloured in is by The Greeting Farm. This is the first time I’ve made a card with one of their images. Cute one, right?

Yesterday, my boyfriend made me a new box to take photos in, and I LOVE it! I can now have a background behind the photos to make it easier to see the edges of the cards as well as taking photos of the cards a bit side on. Doesn’t it make the photo look great?!

And now I can also take the photos like this! Yey!

Copics used: (skin) E00, E02, E04, E13, E15, (hair) B60, BV23, BV25, BV29, (clothes) Y11, Y13, Y19, E97, W0, W3, W5, (self-made card background: Y11, 100, multiliner)

A thank you card

It has been a while since I coloured up a Wee Stamps image, so I thought I was due using one again. This super cute little girl is one of my favourites and this time I decided on a blue and purple combination!

The Kort og Godt charm, twine, Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, various papers (Lili of the Valley and Pion Design for sure) together with a dash of acrylic paint and an embossed Papirdesign stamp make up this card. I made it for one of my co-workers as her leaving card and the text says thank you very much.

And here is another photo, just for fun.
