LotV Musical Elephant

I had a fun request for a card. It was to go to a lady who plays the blues and loves elephants and travelling. I knew exactly what stamp I wanted to use! One of the first stamps I purchased is an elephant blowing bubbles by Lili of the Valley. I don’t think it exists in rubber anymore, but it is available in digi here! I inked up the stamp, apart from the upper bubbles, and drew in musical notes instead and voila I felt I had two of the themes covered.

To add a few more bits of the requested themes I used background paper with subtle musical notes as well as an air plane and a musical note charm.

Copics used: (elephant) N0, N1, N3, E25, R20, R22, (flowers) R27, G94 (notes) B91, B95, (ground) E0000, E21

I have a baby card to show you today. I’ve made it using the cutest Lili of the Valley stamp, which I absolutely adore! It

The text is chipboard by Make it Crafty, which I coloured in to match the rest.

Good luck card

It’s the middle of the month and that means it’s time for a new challenge at Copic Marker Norge. As usual, this year, the theme is anything goes, but this time the DT has been challenged to make the background with Copics. I decided on a simple sky and brick wall. The two animals stamps are by MFT Stamps and the sentiment is by Huldra Designstudio.

Copics used: (background) N0, N1, N3, B00, B12, (elephant) V91, V93, V95, C0, C1, C3, C7, (hippo) W0, W1, W3, W5, RV52, RV55, RV66, B32, B34, B37, G03, G07, G28

Elephant magic

I made a Christmas card this morning and thought I’d, once again, get it added straight away. I have used a pre-coloured topper by Wild Rose Studio this time. I jazzed it up with putting glitter on top of the swirly magic, as well as adding some silver liquid pearls for an added snow effect. The flowers, purple ribbon and bows as well as the big purple pearls are all from Wild Orchid Crafts. The dark purple paper is from Kaboks, and the light purple paper used for the dies is by Lili of the Valley. The ribbon and pearly lace strip is from a local shop.  I have used various dies from Noor! design for the snowflake border and two stand alone snowflakes. They are such pretty dies!

I have decided to enter this is the design team call at Noor! design, so this bit here will be for that purpose. I am Liz and thirty-something living in Norway and I’ve been crafting since summer 2011, mostly making cards. When it comes to crafting, I mostly use my blog, but also I belong to various Facebook crafting groups and use instagram occasionally, though mostly for scenery photos I admit! Although I am on Twitter, I don’t use it very much. I have previous been on the DT team for a challenge blog, and for The Hobby House. Normally I don’t really try to apply for any design teams, but this one just felt right to apply for. One of the reasons is that I have been very pleased with swift and wonderful service provided by Noor! design, and the other is obviously that I love their designs. I mean, who wouldn’t?! I will be using these dies all the time and would love to show my work to fellow Noor! design fans. As I am not on any other DTs I would have the time required to dedicate to this one. I use both pre-coloured images and stamps I colour myself for my cards.

Here is a close up of the  Noor! design dies I used on this card:

Lovephant

Here is my first project as a member of Paper Playtime‘s design team. For our challenge this week, we have the theme “anything goes”.

I made this card using paper from Pion (the back of a fancy one), a paper pad I’ve had for years and I cannot remember where the one with the hearts are from as I used bits I had left over from last year. The reason that the background looks a bit bright is that the paper is shimmering so got caught in the light, and it is the same paper I have used the back of for the deep red lines and leaves which also look dull. Their colour is more similar to the colour of the bow, that’s how far off it is! Anyway, enough rambling. The elephant is a pre coloured image from Lili of the Valley and the sentiment stamp is also from there. All flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
