My favorite astronaut

I had a little bit of time to craft over Easter, so I even had time to make a card by just playing around after I decided I wanted to enter the current sketch challenge at MFT Stamps. I figured it was time for me to finally use the astronaut stamp set that I’ve had for some time so with that in mind I started to play around with a bunch of my distress oxides. It was a lot of fun to make and I really like how it turned out! Here is the result:

LotV Sunny Thoughts

Guess what?! I’ve gotten a spot on the Lili of the Valley design team! In December they had a DT call and even though it was a terrible time for me to sign up for a new DT I simply had to apply. LotV is one of the first stamp companies I bought and I have loads of their rubber stamps from a few years back. My card making sort of started with these and I’ve continued to use their stamps since, so yeah, it was a big deal for me! And they were super kind and let me start a bit later due to everything that was going to happen at the start of the year.

The first card I’m going to show you as a DT is a card I made for a card swap they were hosting. I used one of the stamps from their newest release. You can find it both on a A5 rubber stamp sheet as well as a digital stamp. The sentiment is also LotV.

I’ve used a La-La Land Crafts heart die, heart and frame chipboard I’ve had forever, some Maja Design paper and various ribbon, lace and cheese cloth.

Copics used: (watering can) N0, N1, N3, N5, (flowers) RV52, RV55, RV09, Y19, V15, V17, (bear) E41, E42, E43, (grass and leaves) G03, G28, YG61, YG63, YG97, G21, G82, G40

Make a wish

It is once again the 15th of the month and that means we’re kicking off another anything goes challenge over at Copic Marker Norge. This time the DT has been challenged to do no-line colouring. It’s been a while since I took the time to do one of those so when I sat down to start it took me forever to choose which image to colour! In the end I decided on a Mo’s Digital Pencil stamp called Make A Wish.

The background paper and border die are by MFT Stamps and the butterflies (which I’m sure you know by now that I have a weak spot for) are by La-La Land Crafts.

Copics used: (skin) E0000, E00, E02, E13, E15, R30, (hair) E21, E25, E27, E29, (turquoise) BG10, BG11, BG15, BG18, (purple) V12, V15, V17, (grey) N0, N1, N3, N5, N7, (green) G21, G40, G82, G94

LLLC: I can and I will

Here is my third project for the new La-La Land Crafts release. It’s been fun colouring up the portrait stamps! In fact I’ve already coloured them all up twice and you’ll get to see the others over the next few days as well. I decided to use purple for this one and I think the colour makes everything stand out so nicely. I’ve combined the older Absolutely Perfect word stamp with the new filler words set and they work so great together! You can see how pretty the doily is here as well and of course, butterflies!

I Can And I Will Clear Stamp
Filler Words Print Clear Stamp
You Inspire Me Background Stamp

Dies:
