Elephant birthday

On Tuesday, a friend and I decided that we were going to attempt the new MFT Stamps sketch challenge, no matter what it was, when the new one was out. That was yesterday. My card came along pretty nicely. I used some stamps I coloured up a while back and kept the same colour scheme for the rest of the card, using blue, turquoise and lime green Distress Oxide inks. I cut out the coloured panels using dies from MFT Stamps and the stamps are also from them as well, the Happy Hippos and Adorable Elephants sets. I finished the card off with a Norwegian sentiment, which means happy birthday, by Mathia Design (Hobbykunst) and a few enamel dots from Altenew.

This card has been entered into the following challenge:

MFT Stamps – Sketch challenge #490

A bit of Christmas in April

Because why not, right? This is possibly my favourite Lili of the Valley image. I love James Bear and this particular one is adorable! I used some Maja Design papers, but kept the card reasonably simple.

Snowdrops

Well, the past week flew by quickly! With everything happening at the moment I know quite a few have more time at home regardless of whether they like it or not. I am currently not amongst those, but who knows when that might change. Anyway, because of this I will try to make a couple of colouring videos over the next week to help the colourists out there make time pass a bit quicker and who knows, maybe there are others who might like to try colouring, too.

But for now I will settle with showing you my most recent card. I used a Stamping Bella stamp, and the numbers are made with a MFT Stamps die. The papers are primarily Reprint and Maja Design.

This card has multiple folds, and to see that it needs to be untied.

It has a few folds inside for various content. I’ve made a gift card pocket and written the text from a birthday song on two of the pages inside

And this is how it looks if you look down at it from above.

The blue copics are from the B20s series. The greens are also 20s and the greys are Ns.

Special delivery

March already?! What?! I guess that means it’s time for a new Copic Marker Norge challenge and this time we’re playing around with monochromatic colouring. I opted for blue and to use one of my most recently stamp purchases. This cute little set is by Clearly Besotted and it’s my first stamp set of theirs. I primarily used the B20s for the various stamps and then I coloured up a cloudy background to go with.

More distress fun

Here is the second card I made with the elephant and hippo sets from MFT Stamps for the course I’ll be having in a week and a half in Oslo. I went for blues and greens this time to contrast the pinks of the other card.

Dette er ett av to fargekombinasjoner man kan velge på kurset jeg skal ha hos Hobbykunst i Oslo 8. februar. Her blir det grønn, turkis og blå i både Distress Oxide og Copic Marker. Vi lager bakgrunnen og fargelegger motivene sammen. For mer info og påmelding, ta en titt innom Hobbykunst sine hjemmesider. Tekststemplet er fra Huldra Designstudio.

Here is a photo of both of them together:
