Eat cupcake and be happy

I’m trying to get quite a few of the images I’ve coloured up for the two(!) colouring challenges that Kathy Raccosin has been hosting on Instagram so far this year onto cards. I think it’s going reasonably well, but the pile is rather large so I reckon I’ll be at it for quite some time! For now I will try to have a blog post every other day. Sometimes I do wonder if I’ll ever get caught up and only have a few finished coloured images laying around…

As usual I’m keeping it simple. I cut a big of a stripy background and layered over my coloured panel. Then I found a chipboard I wanted to use, coloured it up and made a matching sentiment. A bit of coloured card stock for the card base and some enamel dots and voilà! The stamp I’ve used is from Alex Syberia’s Etsy shop and is coloured up with Copic Marker.

LotV boy and his dinosaur

I made a really fun and colourful card for the latest Lili of the Valley stamp release. The new boy stamps are adorable, and I love this little one riding on a dinosaur with loads of presents and a little cupcake at the tip of the dinosaur’s tail!

The card is kept simple. I used distress inks to create a matching panel to have on the side of the coloured image and put the sentiment stamp on bright orange card stock. Because birthday cards are supposed to be fun, right?

Bee birthday girl

Another simple layered card using Maja Design papers. I opted for breaking with the background colours completely for the image and sentiment because it’s fun to do so! I’ve used Gina K’s glitter gel on the chipboard and think that turned out pretty good. And the adorable stamp? That’s by Mo’s Digital Pencil!

Spring break

Another floral card, completely different to the one I put up a few days ago. For this one I’ve coloured up a Power Poppy stamp. I’m quite pleased with how the colouring turned out on this one. Sometimes the card doesn’t need a lot of stuff added, at least I think so. So I just added a sentiment stamp by Mathia Design and a few enamel dots by Altenew.

Birthday wishes (og nytt kurs)

This weekend I’ve been busy with loads of visitors, but still had time to prepare a little for the next colouring class I’ll be having in March. This time it’s all about glitter and Stamping Bella.

Her er et av eksempelkortene til kurset jeg skal ha hos Hobbykunst i Oslo 14. mars. Denne gangen er det å fargelegge glittereffekt som er i fokus og motivet vi skal bruke er dette fra Stamping Bella. Du finner mer info og påmelding hos Hobbykunst. Fargene man kan velge mellom denne gangen er på kjolene: rød, hvit, turkis og svart.
