YNS: Happy Brrr-thday

It is time for another post as a guest designer for Your Next Stamp. As I wrote in my first post, I’m going to make all three projects in ways that are, at least in my opinion, rather typical for me. So this one is with a clean and simple style that includes smaller stamps, distress oxide ink and bright colours. I have in fact made two matching cards. The first one has a darker grey background.

The second card I made with this stamp set has a lighter coloured grey background and the distressed background goes vertically across the middle.

Copics used: N0, N1, N3, N5, N7, RV00, RV09, RV52, RV55, RV69, Y11, Y13, Y38, YR09, E41, E42, E43, E44

LLLC: Make a wish

For our La-La Land Crafts project this week we were to use background stamps and stencils. I’ve used two different background stamps and one of the stencils along with two of the clear stamp sets for my project. You can find a list of all the products at the bottom of this post. I’ve used various distress inks for the background stamps, and the circles were embossed. I finally found my embossing mat. I wonder how many years it is since I last used it.. could be as many as 4 or 5 and then I think I only used it a couple of times. I’ll try to do better at embossing like that from now on!

Here is another photo, a bit closer, so you can see the embossed circles better.

New release at LotV

Yesterday was Lili of the Valley‘s 15th birthday and that was celebrated with a brand new release! There are some fabulous stamps in this release, as it always is, and I thought I would show you one of the cards I’ve made with one of the new stamps. I coloured it up in no-lines this time and kept it simple.

Flowers for you

It’s the middle of the month again already and that means it’s time for a new challenge over at Copic Marker Norge. This time the has been challenged to make something with the theme nature. I chose to colour up a floral stamp by My Favorite Things.

The border die is also by My Favorite Things, the butterfly by La-La Land Crafts and the dots are gumdrops from Your Next Stamp.

LotV Bunny hugs

So Lili of the Valley is having a new release to mark their 15th(!) birthday on the 15th of May. And it’s a super cute release! I mean, of course it’s cute, it’s Lili of the Valley! That’s one of the reasons I love their stamps so much and I’ve got to say.. this bunny is totally adorable! I coloured it up with my Copics as usual, kept the card really simple and used a LotV sentiment as well.
