Hero Arts and Lion King

For the longest time, (yes we are talking years here,) my sister wanted a Lion King themed card for her birthday. I was never really able to find what I wanted to use for it until a couple of months ago when I came across two perfect stamp sets from Hero Arts.Funnily enough, her birthday was right around the time of the premiere of the new Lion King film as well. My sister finally got her birthday card and I no longer have to be annoyed at that one little challenge I seemed unable to complete. Thank you, Hero Arts! Oh, and I had to promise to get her the film once it’s out on Blu Ray, too!

I used Distress Oxide Ink for the background and coloured up Make it Crafty alphabet letters using Copic.

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:

Copics used: (grey) N1, N3, N5, N7, (blue) B00, (skin) E0000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E42, E43, E44, (green) YG17, YG23, G94, (orange) YR07, YR15, YR20, E08

This card has been entered into the following challenge:

Pink Azalea

Another clean and simple card from me today. This time I’ve made a card using one of the flower stamps from Power Poppy. I had a bit of a accident with my copics right at the end when colouring it up, a big massive near-black coloured blob. I managed to fix it, mostly, and then I fussy cut the image. The background it something I made using one of the pink distress oxide inks and a heart stencil, and the text stamp is by Huldra Designstudio.

Copics used: (pink) RV52, RV55, RV17, R39, R89, (green) YG01, YG13, YG63, YG67, (brown) E21, E25, E29 + white pen

Christmas hedgehogs

I made this card for the December issue of a Norwegian card making and scrapbooking magazine called Ett Trykk. I used the super-cute hedgehogs from MFT Stamps along with some distress inks and Make it Crafty chipboard. It had to be blue, of course, as I love making blue winter/Christmas cards.
