Thinking of you

When I spotted this stamp at Simon Says Stamp I simply had to have it. It’s a big and beautiful tree and an empty swing which is optional. I immediately thought it would be perfect for those hard to make “thinking of you” cards. When I have time to make a few I will do them up in different colours. It is so handy to have a few for when you need one and don’t feel like making any there and then. The sentiment says “thinking of you” in Norwegian. I put it on foam tape and added a little butterfly in matching colours to go with.

Baby girl christening card

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

Fairy sleepy

The adorable sleeping fairy baby is a stamp by Mo’s Digital Pencil. I have Lawn Fawn paper and a chipboard from Make It Crafty.

LotV boy and his dinosaur

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?

Whimsy party pig

Apparently it’s May. Not entirely sure how that happened, but hey it’s mean there’s a new release up at Whimsy Stamps! I used Crissy’s party pig for my card and can you see what I’ve done different?

Yup. Pencils. Pencils on kraft. Until about a week ago I hadn’t coloured up with pencils before, not even had a try I was unhappy with. I simply hadn’t tried. I’d been told it was difficult, so I’ve just put it up and stuck with my Copics even if I got my pencils as a gift well over three years ago! I finally tried them and they are so much fun! I love the effect I get from using them on kraft paper as well. My Prismacolor pencils are definitely going to be used regularly!
