LLLC – Just for You stamped dress

I’ve made a card where I tried something new. I decided to stamp the dress of the adorable little girl because the background stamp seemed so perfect for a dress! The stamp set I’ve used is Just for You from the new La-La Land Crafts release. I absolutely love this new background stamp!

To get this effect on the dress, I first stamped the background stamp in the colour I wanted the dress, and then I stamped the girl over the top of it. Then I fussy cut out the dress before I used my Copics to draw in some shadowed areas on the dress. Afterwards I glued it onto the girl stamp I’d started colouring up and voila!

The background stamp is stamped with a deep red Distress Ink, whereas the dress is stamped with a yellow shade of Distress Oxide Ink.

LLLC – Just for You boy card

Guess what?! For the new release at La-La Land Crafts I’ve used a…. boy stamp! Yes, you read it right, I’ve finally made a boy card! I even freehand coloured up some bushes around him.

The new release is really great! I especially love this background stamp. It is called Just for You. You should see how many gingham backgrounds I have laying around now in all kinds of colours! It’s easy to use and simply makes a great background. I’ll be using it a lot from now on, for sure!

A bit of turquoise

We have a new challenge up at Copic Marker Norge and this is my inspirational card for it. On the moodboard for this month I was inspired by the colours: turquoise and white with a hint of yellow, as well the decorations and flowers. The image I chose for this is by Ching-Chou Kuik. I do love getting to make a card using my favourite colours!

I’ve used papers by Maja Design and Bazzill, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, a stamp from Noor Design to create the effect around the image which I used distress oxide ink on, a Happy Birthday stamp from My Favorite Things, and a border die from La-La Land Crafts.

Here you can see the card from a side on view. There are several elements put on foam pads to create a sense of dimension.

Here is a close-up of the flower arrangement

Grow a little love, CAS

First Tuesday of the month meeeaaans new Tiddly Inks challenge, yey! Our theme this month is Give Love.

Tiddly Inks challenge means Tiddly Inks image, and it wasn’t hard to pick one of my favourites for this. It is called Grow a Little Love. I made a circular frame for her and cropped her to fit inside it, and with her hair peeking slightly outside it looks like a big speech bubble! I coloured in with Copics and made the heart background using distress oxide ink and a heart stencil from Carta Bella. The sentiment and hearts are from a TCP Studio stamp set which I embossed onto the card. A Magnolia border die and some pearls helped finishing off the card.

Copics used: (hair) E70, E74, E77, (skin) E00, E02, E04, E13, E15, (dark pink) RV14, R35, R39, R89, (pink) RV00, R81, R83, R85 + white gel pen
