Watery birthday celebrations

Copic Marker Norge is celebrating its 6 years this month! This is the card I have made for the birthday celebration challenge. Pop over and celebrate with us!

I have used an Art by Mi Ran design by Whimsy Stamps, Coventina, and went for my favourite colours, a mix of turquoise and blue! I’m not sure I’ve actually used this colour combination on a card previously, but I should definitely use it more.

The sentiment is my own, and the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts. The bottom layer of the background papers was originally more grey-teal shaded, but I went over it with blue distress ink to get the colour I wanted for the card. The same distress ink was used around the edge of the image and the sentiment. The papers are from Panduro and Papermania and I did all the edges with a tool I got at Panduro. The dragonflies are my newest dies and they are by Magnolia. Aren’t they darling? The lace is from Live and Love Crafts, the ribbon from The Hobby House and the cheese cloth I bought at Bikuben.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (hair) E25, E27, E34, E41, E59, (dress) BG01, BG05, BG09, BG78, (water) B000, B00, B02, B05 + white gel pen

Animal fun – Tiddly Inks blog hop

It’s blog hop time! Tiddly Inks is hosting a blog hop to introduce the new temporary DT that I joined last month and some guest designers are taking part also. To view the page for the blog hop, please click here. Don’t forget to visit each person’s blog or those in the Inlinkz list and leave a comment – there are great prizes to be won and you’ll find freebies, too! You can find all the details here.

I decided to mix and match a few of the stamps. The cat, hat, presents and text stamps were fun to put together for this CAS card. I think they are perfect for fun party cards! You can find the various stamp sets here.

And guess what! The amazingly talented Christy has let me put one of her stamps on here for you all to download for free! How great is that?!

Simply click on the photo (it should open in a new tab for you so you get it full size), then right-click the image and choose save picture as, the image is called fun animal party. Then you can print it out and colour it up like you usually do. Don’t forget, as always, you may not upload the uncoloured image to share on your site. If you want others to get the digital stamp, you are more than welcome to direct them here so they can download it, too. Make sure you always follow Tiddly Inks‘ terms of use when you use one of their images, this one included!

I’m sure Christy would love to see what you all make with it, so please upload and show off your coloured project at the Tiddly Inks Facebook group. Yes, I’d love to see it, too! 😀

Purple pansy passion

No colouring from me today. Instead I am showing one out of three cards I was asked to make for three great ladies who turned 50 in June. For this one I opted for purple and shabbied it up a bit by roughing up the edges. The paper is possibly Maja Design (or I suppose it could be Pion), I can never really keep track of it. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the butterfly puncher by Martha Stewart.

Soft blues

Here is the card I made for the most recent Art by Mi Ran facebook anything goes challenge that started almost two weeks ago. As my mojo isn’t been playing along for a while, I decided to use one of my favourite images, Rora and Butterfly.

The paper is scraps I had laying about which I roughed up the edged of and layered along with some ribbon, lace and cheese cloth. The lace and pearls are from Live and Love Crafts, as the blue flowers whereas the white rosebuds are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The sentiments are stamps from Lili of the Valley and Make it Crafty.

Beauty and the Beaker

I made this card for one of my co-worker’s birthday last year. The image is more than perfect because it even looks like her! I’ve coloured it all in with copics. The letters are made with a Noor Design die, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts. I’ve also used some Martha Stewart puncher. And the perfect image? That would be Saturated Canary. It is called Beauty and the Beaker, and I’ve cropped off about half as I really wanted it close up.
