Konfirmasjonskort

I have made a confirmation card for a boy. I opted out of using a coloured image this time around and instead I went with one of the prints from Maja Design. All the background papers are also Maja Design. I used some blue and white twine, a guitar charm from Kort og Godt and some chipboard stars by Papirdesign that matched the colours rather well. The inside was decorated with a pocket for money or a gift certificate on one side and a space for writing on the other side.

LLLC – Just for You boy card

Guess what?! For the new release at La-La Land Crafts I’ve used a…. boy stamp! Yes, you read it right, I’ve finally made a boy card! I even freehand coloured up some bushes around him.

The new release is really great! I especially love this background stamp. It is called Just for You. You should see how many gingham backgrounds I have laying around now in all kinds of colours! It’s easy to use and simply makes a great background. I’ll be using it a lot from now on, for sure!

Just for You
Januty Luka

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.

Copics used: V09, V12, V15, V17, R81, R85, YG01, YG13, G07, G28, Y13, Y38, YR09, C1, C3, C9

Superhero box card

So, I got a request to make something. A box card, for a young lad. Considering I hardly every make anything for boys, and never had made this type of box before, of course I had to say yes! Haha.

I followed a great tutorial by Jenny at LaLa Land Crafts. It was very easy to follow and my box looks just like it should!

The products I’ve used are two stamps by Tiddly Inks, My Batty Hero and My Super Boy. They have been coloured in with Copic and then cut out by hand. The stars are by Papirdesign, the Happy, cloud and scalloped circle dies are from La La Land Crafts. Let’s look at the box!

Here you can see the box directly from the front:

From the left side you can see how the images pop up. The boy’s first name has been left on the photos as per the recipient’s request.

And from the right side you can see the bit behind them quite well with the English birthday greeting and die:

Here is a close-up view of the bottom of the box:

See how nicely it folds down? That made it easy to send it by post!

Dragons!

I don’t make a lot of cards for boys, so this month is pretty rare. I have made 3 projects which were specifically made for boys! This is the first one I will show you and it is featuring dragons from My Favorite Things. I mean, who doesn’t love dragons, right?!

Distress Oxide Inks have quickly become a favourite of mine and I have used them here for the background. The colour I used is called Salty Ocean and I’ve spashed some water on it to get the cool effect.

The happy die is from La-La Land Crafts. (They still have a sale on. It lasts through the 19th March, see here for more details.)

As you know I don’t like having names on cards shown on the blog (especially children), unless their parents want it shown (I don’t tend to ask, just remove it), so the boy’s name has been removed.

Also, I’ve made a new credit strip for myself at the bottom of the photos. I felt I was really due a new one and it ties well in with the website theme. There will still be a few cards showcasing the old one as they are posts already scheduled. I like it 🙂

Here is the card viewed from the side, before I decorated it with doodles inside.

Copics used:  (yellow dragon) Y11, Y13, Y19, Y38, B32, B34, B37, V12, V15, V17, (blue dragon) B32, B34, B37, Y19, YR04, E08, RV09, RV10, RV14

 

Edit: Oh how cool. My card was spotted at My Favorite Things! Thank you so much!
