YNS: Kyle the Koala

Today I’m here to show you the third and final project I’ve made a guest designer for Your Next Stamp. This time I’ve used Kyle the Koala. In addition I’ve used the Paint Swooshes and Splatters stamp set to make the background behind the koala. It was made using two different shades of Distress Oxide Ink. I was just playing around making the layout, and I really like how it turned out! In fact I’m already planning planning to do something similar as a baby card as I think that could work well. The dots in the corner as also by YNS.

Here you can see a close up of the background I made.

YNS: Happy Brrr-thday

It is time for another post as a guest designer for Your Next Stamp. As I wrote in my first post, I’m going to make all three projects in ways that are, at least in my opinion, rather typical for me. So this one is with a clean and simple style that includes smaller stamps, distress oxide ink and bright colours. I have in fact made two matching cards. The first one has a darker grey background.

The second card I made with this stamp set has a lighter coloured grey background and the distressed background goes vertically across the middle.

Copics used: N0, N1, N3, N5, N7, RV00, RV09, RV52, RV55, RV69, Y11, Y13, Y38, YR09, E41, E42, E43, E44

YNS Happy Heart

A little while ago I was asked if I wanted to be a guest designer for Your Next Stamp. I wasn’t entirely sure if I had time and energy, but I decided there was no way I could pass up the opportunity, and they did give me plenty of time! So here I am, guest designing! You can find this and a couple more of my cards on their blog this month.

The first card I’ve made for them I’ve made as a layered card. I’ve used this adorable bunny along with a great sentiment set and gumdrops. I love the gumdrops! They are perfect for my cards and I wish I had loads more of them right now!

Christmas hedgehogs

I made this card for the December issue of a Norwegian card making and scrapbooking magazine called Ett Trykk. I used the super-cute hedgehogs from MFT Stamps along with some distress inks and Make it Crafty chipboard. It had to be blue, of course, as I love making blue winter/Christmas cards.

Here is another view of the front of the card

And this little dude appears in the corner on the inside of the card.

Card featured in Ett Trykk

Right around new year, when people were busy deciding on what resolutions to make and whether or not to keep them the following day, I decided on a half random impulse to submit two cards for a magazine! Yup, that’s right. It even made it into the magazine! So I have now proudly had one of my cards featured in Ett Trykk. Yey! Although I really don’t like the background they decided to add to it.. but at least here on my blog they will be without that background. Yey!

I’ve used Mo’s Digital Pencil‘s dandelion girl stamp called Make a Wish for this. I absolutely adore her! I think it is one of my favourite Mo stamps! The paper is from Paper Cellar and the sentiment stamp is by Norsk Stempelblad.

I had to submit a couple of extra photos, so why not add them here as well!

Here is a close-up of the coloured image, too.
