Faythe’s Cherry Flowers

Recently Tiddly Inks was out with a new image. It’s called Faythe’s Cherry Flowers. Of course I had to get it and use it as I think it is really sweet. I quite like the character Faythe and her awesome hair.

If you’d like to see how I’ve coloured up this image, you can see it here. Yes, I’ve made a video of me colouring her up! I hope you enjoy it! I’ll make a seperate post about it tomorrow.

I’ve used various papers from Maja Design along with some La-La Land Crafts dies and a Make It Crafty chipboard which I coloured with both matching colours and the white dots of the dress.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E70, E71, E74, E77, E79, (dress and shoes) B91, B93, B95, B97, B99, (flowers) RV52, RV55, R39, YG13, YG63, YG67, (ribbon and shadow) C1, C3, C5

Florals and Plants at Tiddly Inks

It is the first Tuesday of the Month so it is time to kick off another Tiddly Inks challenge! The theme for the month of May is Plants and Floral.

I decided to make a sympathy card. It is an important type of card and it is always handy to have one or two laying about. The stamp I chose is the new Cherry Blossom from Tiddly Inks. Isn’t it beautiful? It seemed perfect for my card. I decided to keep it very simple and made my own sentiment.

Copics used: (pink) RC00, R83, R39, (green) YG13, YG63, YG67, (brown) E71, E74, E77, (background) RV00

LLLC – Just for You

La-La Land Crafts is out with a new release and it’s awesome! There are two new types of products! Both clear stamps AND background stamps! How cool is that?!

First off I will be showing you one of the background stamps with its coordinating stamps. It is called Just for You. The flowers, the pot and the sentiment all come with the new gingham background stamp! It’s such a great set and I really love it. I decided to make a clean and simple card where I embossed the sentiment in white.

Papers with a knitted pattern and blues

Here is another card without any colouring. I made it so it would match the ballerina card I posted about the other day.

Here is a card I made on order. I used loads of papers with kitting on by Papirdesign and some other scraps I had laying around that matched well. I’ve got flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and candi and leaves made with a Martha Stewart puncher.

Here is a close-up of the flowers.

Thinking of you Marci

Another Monday, another La-La Lands Crafts day! It is getting pretty close to easter and I doubt I will have much time to craft over the next two weeks or so. For once I am pretty much on top of things, though. Go me!

This week our theme is Flowers. A good excuse for me to make a new cards with flowers on. You will find a list of products I’ve used with links to the items below the photos, above the list of Copics. I’ve gotten better at layering up cards again lately at least, not all clean and simple cards, but I am still not great at using flowers on a lot of projects. But here is one! The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts, the papers by Maja Design and charm by Tim Holtz.

The leaves are pretty great. They cut wonderfully and you have one going each direction! Yey!

Here you can see how I’ve layed up the dies. First the Filigree Flower under the image, then the Deco Border around the image itself, and lastly the butterfly on top.

I love these butterflies! I’ve given them a prominent body with a string of pearls.

Here is one final photo of the card from the floral arrangement side.
