A little bit random

Today I am showing you the second card I made on (Inter)National Scrapbooking Day in an event hosted for Scandinavian scrapbookers. The challenge here was a photo of a layout by Skrapowisko. (If you like doing layouts, you need to see hers. They are superb!) I cannot seem to relocate this particular one on her website to show you, but I was inspired by her background and all the speech bubbles and text around the centre image. Also mostly pale colours.

I’ve used my Copic Markers to create the background, as well as to colour in the Ching-Chou Kuik image. You will find a list of all the colours at the bottom of the post as usual. All of the die cuts are from La-La Land Crafts. I’ve used sentiment stamps from MFT Stamps and Papirdesign.

Copics used: (background from top) BG72, V91, YG00, BV20, YR00, B000, RV00, G00, Y00, BV000, R00

Teddy bear birthday party

Once again I’ve made quite a simple card. I’ve coloured up some party bears from Lili of the Valley, called Happy Bears, and gave them the entire top of the card. The bottom I made with Maja Design paper to which I added a stroke of BG53 and a My Favorite Things sentiment embossed onto red paper, as well as a couple of candi on the bottom corner.

Here you can see the card from the side. The sentiment was added on foam pads.

Copics used: (bears) E41, E42, E43, E44, R20 (turquoise) BG53, BG57, BG49, (red) R22, R39, (white) W3, (floor) W3, W5, W7, (pot) E71, E74, E77, (leaves) YG13, YG67

Bella Birthday

Today I am showing you card I made with a Mo’s Digital Pencil image called Bella Birthday. The girl looks perfect for a happy or celebrations card! I decided to keep it clean and simple again, so what I’ve used is paper from Lili of the Valley, chipboard from Make it Crafty.

And here you can see the card a bit from the side.

Copics used: (blue) B32, B34, B37, B39, (yellow) Y13, Y19, Y38, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (hair) E08, E18, E19, E49, E97, (grass) YG13, YG61, YG63, YG67, G99

Birthday dragon

I randomly decided to follow a sketch this morning. I have only done that once or twice before, I think, but I saw it and thought why not. It is the sketch for the Wednesday Sketch Challenge at MFT Card Challenge. I figured I then might as well use their stamps and enter in the challenge, so I decided on the Magical Dragons and my favourite colour. The dragon stamp was combined with balloons from the Happy Hippos set and the sentiment from the Adorable Elephants set.

The paper is from Papermania, the circular die from La-La Land Crafts and some candi.

Copics used: BG70, BG72, BG75, Y11, Y13, Y19, V91, V93, V95, R00, R20, R22, C1, C3, C5

LLLC April Showers

Monday again already. That means it is time for me to show off another La-La Land Crafts project. The theme for this week is April Showers. I thought Dancing in the Rain Marci would be perfect for this, and I decided yet again to go with a combination of colours I don’t use very often, green and pink.

As some of you may have seen, I’ve never been one to use a lot of dies. 3 or so, sure, but not a lot on one project. So I decided to challenge myself, and a challenge it was. From three dies onwards I had to tell myself “just one more, come on” and then “one more die, you can do it”, hahaha. It worked, though. I have used SEVEN different ones! That is a lot for me! You can find a list of them all below.

The papers are mostly by Bazzill (the plain colours) and Maja Design.

The side on view shows how the butterflies are only attached by their body and that Marci and the middle background border have both been put on foam tape to give it more dimention.

A photo from another angle where you can see the bottom flower better and how the butterfly pops up.
