LotV bunny on rocking horse

I had a request for a couple of baby cards recently so of course I had to use Lili of the Valley images for them! They have such a wide range of brilliant baby stamps and they’ve been my favourite long before I got on the DT! I was asked to avoid the traditional girly pinks so I actually decided to give orange a go for a baby card. I think it worked really well and despite my dislike for orange I quite like this. I guess orange is growing on me!

I’ve used various Maja Design papers, my favourite lace and a Make it Crafty chipboard.

Copics used: W0, W1, W3, W5, YG13, YG67, YR07, YR20, YR21, YR23, E41, E42, E43, N0, N1, N3

Sympathy Angel

There hasn’t been a whole lot of non-DT cards here lately, so I figure it’s time to post up a few more of those. Today I’m showing you a sympathy card I made on order. It is not often I make this kind of card as a layered card. I gave myself the challenge of colouring up in very pale shades which is rather unusual for me, but I felt this kind of card needed a soft feeling to it.

The stamp is Young Angel by Aurora Wings and the papers are various ones by Maja Design. I’ve used dies from Memory Box and La-La Land Crafts, and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Here is another photo of the card.

Winter shaker as my final LLLC DT project

At the start of last year I made my very first La-La Land Crafts card. Now, 81 projects later, I’ve decided to step down off the design team as my time isn’t quite as predictable as before and it’s more difficult to commit to another half a year. It’s been fun to challenge myself with all the different themes and releases along the way. Thank you so much for having me as a part of your team!

For my final project, the theme is shaker card. I’ve decided to go with a clean and simple winter/Christmas card, if a shaker card can even be deemed as CAS… The white main background on the card is embossed using the snowflakes stencil to give it a bit of a texture.

Here is a photo of the card laying flat and the beads are all over the shaker area.

YNS: Kyle the Koala

Today I’m here to show you the third and final project I’ve made a guest designer for Your Next Stamp. This time I’ve used Kyle the Koala. In addition I’ve used the Paint Swooshes and Splatters stamp set to make the background behind the koala. It was made using two different shades of Distress Oxide Ink. I was just playing around making the layout, and I really like how it turned out! In fact I’m already planning planning to do something similar as a baby card as I think that could work well. The dots in the corner as also by YNS.

Here you can see a close up of the background I made.

Lotv Football teen

I wanted to make a clean and simple football card and this stamp from Lili of the Valley is perfect. Decided to have a plain edge around it and kept the stamp (from Norsk Stempelblad) in a pale colour to match.
