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.

Power Poppy tulips

My mum loves tulips. So when she had her birthday this week I really wanted to make a card with tulips on. I found a beautiful stamp at Power Poppy and it suited me perfectly.

I wanted to keep the flowers completely in focus so I made a very simple card to go with it, where I made the sentiment myself.

Here is another photo as well

Thank you so much!

Flowers for mum

Today is the day we celebrate Mother’s Day in Norway, so of course I had to make a Mother’s Day card! I decided to try something a bit different yet again, and decided to use the stamped image as a border and crop off it. The beautiful flower stamp is from Power Poppy.

I used some textured card stock on the left side of the card with a couple of card candi and then I just printed a sentiment I made on the right side in the bottom corner. It is a very simple card and I quite like how it turned out!

Thankful heart, CAS

This is one of my favourite Tiddly Inks images. I love the close-up, framed style of it. The last time I used this image on a card, I had loads of layers, so I wanted this one to be different. CAS it is!

The name of the stamp is Thankful Heart and you can find it here. I’ve coloured it up with copics. The papers is by Paper Cellar, the bottom sentiment by Stempelglede and the black buttons are candi by Craftwork Cards.

Here is another photo of the card; a close-up of the coloured image.

Copics used: (sky) B34, C1, (hair) E41, E42, E43, E44, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (jar) B000, B00, B02, (flowers) R22, R24, R59, Y04, Y19, Y38, YG63, YG67, (dress) BG53, BG57, BG78

Hippi hippi hurra!

Sometimes I feel like making something totally random. This is one of those times. I coloured up the image and got a hippie feeling from it, so I went with that idea. I wanted a floral background for it, so I made one with a stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop and distress oxide inks. I then sprayed on some water and splattered more watered down distress oxide ink onto it. The sentiment then sort of made itself to go with.

But only sort of… I made one, did the photos, posted it up and… couldn’t get it off my mind. I really didn’t like how I’d made it. After a couple of hours, I gave up on being annoyed and tried to poke it back off. Slowly it gave way and I could make a new one. Now I really like it! Yey for Ctrl-Z in real life! Haha

Oh and the girl stamp is by Make It Crafty and is coloured with copics. You can find the colours I used at the bottom of this post.

Here you can see the coloured part up close, as well as some of the flowers and dots I made for the background.
