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

Birthday hippo and elephant

Happy Easter everybody. I decided to take some for myself today and make a card. The stamps I’ve used are by My Favorite Things. Aren’t they adorable? they are from the Happy Hippo og Adorable Elephants sets.

The paper I have used is by Papirdesign, the border die is by Pretty Pink Posh and the birthday die is by La-La Land Crafts.

I decided to go with another clean and simple layout. This is definitely a current favourite, as I’m sure you’ve all figured out by now. Other favourites are these darling stamps and the birthday die.

Here is another photo:

Papers with a knitted pattern and blues

Here is another card without any colouring. I made it so it would match the ballerina card I posted about the other day.

Here is a card I made on order. I used loads of papers with kitting on by Papirdesign and some other scraps I had laying around that matched well. I’ve got flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and candi and leaves made with a Martha Stewart puncher.

Here is a close-up of the flowers.

Monsters!

Another boy’s birthday which I needed to make a card for. It almost looks like I’m making a habit out of making boy cards now! This time I decided to use monsters from Your Next Stamp. Aren’t they awesome? I cut them out by hand.

The background is made using Distress Oxide Ink. I then splashed water on it in rather big chunks which created a great contrasting effect. I added the coloured strip to the middle of the card and added the monsters on top so it looks like they’re stood up over the top of the card.

After I took the photos I used an alphabet die set and cut out the boy’s name in dark purple and put it underneath the happy birthday sentiment. The happy birthday sentiment is by My Favorite Things which I embossed in white. And the white dots? They’re candi by Craftwork Cards.

And from the side, where you can also see some of the doodling I did inside.

Blue floral ballerina

A very special co-worker of mine had her 60th birthday quite recently, so I wanted to make her a special card. She loves blue, and knitting, so they were two of the things I wanted to include. I also wanted to colour up something fiddly as I knew she would appreciate it. The stamp I decided to use is one of my favourites at Aurora Wings. It’s so pretty! Everything is coloured up with Copics and then I stamped a Noor Design flourish in pale blue around the edges of the image.

The papers are by Papirdesign, the charm by (probably) Kort og Godt, the flowers by Live and Love Crafts as well as Wild Orchid Crafts. The leaf dies and the scalloped circle are both from La-La Land Crafts. As the final touches I added some cheese cloth, transparent water drops and candi which I coloured in a matching blue.

Here you can see the card viewed from the side.

Here is a close-up of the colouring.
