Birthday poppy

I don’t often play with panel dies, but when I saw this Trellis one from Altenew I knew I had to have it. It’s been die cut as white card stock and then I used my Distress Ink (one of the few I have that’s not Oxide) in the colour Peeled Paint and deliberately avoided getting it even. As the background behind it, I used one of the new watercolour background panels from Lili of the Valley. Then I cut the Trellis die cut apart so that I only kept about 2/3 of it. The Paint-a-Flower Poppy has been coloured with my Copic markers and then cut out by hand. After I glued it onto the background and trellis, I used one of my other Copic marker colours to draw in some dots in a colour to match the distress. The Happy Birthday sentiment is a part of the Paint-a-Flower Poppy set, whereas “dearest friend” is off the Statement Flowers set and I used two different colours from the Zesty Limes ink cubes set. A few transparent drops and voila, card done!

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

Purple Christmas and teddy bears

Christmas is upon us, or well it’s Boxing Day already! I thought I would show you two more Christmas cards I’ve made this year. I’ve decided to add them both to the same post as they sort of match nicely as both are purple with James bear from Lili of the Valley and sentiments from Papirdesign

And here is the second one.

Happy Hedgehogs

Today there is a new challenge over at Copic Marker Norge and it is our challenge number 100! That is quite a milestone! As usual this year it is a moodboard challenge where autumn and orange are the main themes. For my card, I opted for the Happy Hedgehogs by MFT Stamps, and I absolutely love them! The background was done with distress inks in shades of yellow, orange and red.

And from the side as usual.

Copics used: E19, E41, E42, E43, E70, E71, E74, E77, E79, R20, R22, Y13, Y17, Y19, YR04, YR07, YR09, YG63, YG67
