Flowers for you

It’s the middle of the month again already and that means it’s time for a new challenge over at Copic Marker Norge. This time the has been challenged to make something with the theme nature. I chose to colour up a floral stamp by My Favorite Things.

The border die is also by My Favorite Things, the butterfly by La-La Land Crafts and the dots are gumdrops from Your Next Stamp.

Copics used: RV63, RV55, RV17, RV69, YG61, YG13, YG63, YG67, Y17, YR09, E18 + white pen

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

A little bit of red

I did it! I made another layered card and I even used flowers on it! I believe that is the first card this year that I’ve used flowers on and we’re nearly through March already. I must admit I hadn’t quite realised that I use flowers quite that rarely now. Maybe I should try to use that a bit more frequently again…

Anyway! The flowers I did used were purchased at Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts a few years ago. The paper is Maja Design and the dies are Precious Marieke and Papirdesign. I’ve used a stamp from The East Wind for my card.

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
