A shabby chic card

It doesn’t happen very often, but sometimes I do make cards without a coloured up image. Here I’ve used Maja Design paper together with one of their printed images. I’ve used white acrylic paint around all the edges, by favourite lace and some ribbon together with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The numbers are from a MFT Stamps die and the sentiment is by Mathia Design.

Blue no-lines flowers

A while ago, I coloured up this flower stamp from Inkon3 using their Fadeout ink for the no-lines effect, but I never really got around to making it into a card.

Well, now it’s done! I bought this gorgeous panel die by Lawn Fawn a week or two ago and it’s perfect! To get a bit of contrast I used blue cardstock behind it, the same colour I’ve used on the frame and small sentiment strip. The birthday die, by Simon Says Stamp, is cut out in a slightly darker cardstock. The flower is put reasonably centred on the card, but to break up the background panel somewhat I added a rectangular white panel with the blue cardstock behind it, behind a bit over half of the coloured image.

Mmmm Strawberries!

Our theme this month, at Copic Marker Norge, is something edible. Initially I was going to use a stamp with donuts, but I got a Power Poppy gift certificate for my birthday a few days ago and I simply had to colour up this stamp! Don’t the strawberries look yummy?! I cannot wait for summer and being able to pick some in mum’s garden! Strawberries are delicious!

Copics used: R22, R24, R27, R59, R89, G21, G24, G40, N1, N3, Y11, Y13, Y38, YG01, YG17, YG23, YG97

Floral card (og kurs)

18th January I’m having my first colouring and card making course. The object of the course is to make a floral card, where you colour in the stamped image yourself, and there are three possible options. Today’s blog post is for the purple option. I’ve used Rayher dies and a stamp from My Favorite Things.

Lørdag 18. januar skal jeg holde kort- og fargeleggingskurs hos Hobbykunst i Oslo. Her skal vi sammen fargelegge dette blomstermotivet fra My Favorite Things med Copic Marker og man kan velge mellom oransje (se det oransje kortet her), lilla og rosa. Det er tre noe ulike layouter på dette enkle kortet, og man velger selv hvilken layout man ønsker. Påmelding og mer informasjon om hva man trenger er på Hobbykunst sine nettsider her.

Det ligger nå også ute foreløpig informasjon om de neste to kursene jeg skal ha, i februar og mars.

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
