LotV Musical Elephant

I had a fun request for a card. It was to go to a lady who plays the blues and loves elephants and travelling. I knew exactly what stamp I wanted to use! One of the first stamps I purchased is an elephant blowing bubbles by Lili of the Valley. I don’t think it exists in rubber anymore, but it is available in digi here! I inked up the stamp, apart from the upper bubbles, and drew in musical notes instead and voila I felt I had two of the themes covered.

To add a few more bits of the requested themes I used background paper with subtle musical notes as well as an air plane and a musical note charm.

Copics used: (elephant) N0, N1, N3, E25, R20, R22, (flowers) R27, G94 (notes) B91, B95, (ground) E0000, E21

New release at LotV

Yesterday was Lili of the Valley‘s 15th birthday and that was celebrated with a brand new release! There are some fabulous stamps in this release, as it always is, and I thought I would show you one of the cards I’ve made with one of the new stamps. I coloured it up in no-lines this time and kept it simple.

Copics used: E41, E42, E43, E44, N7, RV00, RV52, Y11, Y13, Y38, V12, V15, YG13, YG17, G40

Mo’s girl with flowers

Someone I have known since I was very little recently had her birthday and if that doesn’t call for a handmade birthday card then what does?!

I’ve used Maja Design and Papirdesign paper together with a Mo’s Digital Pencil stamp, the doily from the new La-La Land Crafts release and Rayher number dies. Ruffle up some edges, add some ribbon and lace and some personalised sentiments and voila!

Copics used: (dress) B06, B12, B14, B37, (orange) Y11, Y19, YR07, (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, (green) G82, G94, YG61, (pink) RV55, RV66, R39

Dwarf with empty beer

I am terrible at making cards for men, to say the least…  but I kind of like this one with its bright blue and purple to match the image I’d coloured up.

I have used a Mo’s Digital Pencil stamp which I’ve coloured in with Copics, some Snip Art chipboard dies and a sentiment by Huldra Designstudio. The lighter coloured purple banned held the name of the card recipient.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E70, E71, E74, E77, E79, (grey) C1, C3, C5, (blue) B91, B93, B95, B97, (purple) V09, V12, V15, V17, (yellow/orange) Y13, Y19, YR15, YR16, YR18, (ground) W0, W1, W3, W5

LLLC: Dinomates

For the La-La Land Crafts blog this week we are playing with black and turquoise. It is a combination I quite like, and I opted to combine it with a spot of orange and a (for me) new stamp. I thought these dinosaurs were super cute!

Let’s have another photo, because why not!
