Hello there, butterfly

I went out yesterday and purchased me another Magnolia stamp, or… a few, actually! I know what I am like with rubber stamps, though, so I quickly stamped up a few of them to have them at hand before I forget all about even buying them… Before I started on the image I had decided I wanted to do one with loads of layers, and pink. Because I haven’t done pink in a while!

As usual I’ve coloured it in with Copics, the pink candi is also coloured with Copics. I’ve used a bunch of Maja Design papers, cut out the text sentiment, used a Tim Holtz charm, some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and a bit of white acrylic paint and frantage. I had to cut out the image by hand as I’d managed to stamp it up so terribly it couldn’t stay with its background, haha.

Let’s take a closer look of the girl. It was a bit fiddly to cut it out by hand!

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (hair) E41, E42, E43, E44, (white) W0, W1, W3, W5, (pink) RV00, R81, R83, R85

Hello, my friend

It’s white out. Everywhere. And we are due even more snow tonight. Quite a lot, actually, unless they’ve changed their minds.

So this card is proper spring!

I’ve used a Mo’s Digital Penchil stamp, Make it Crafty Chipboard and Maja Design paper.

I’m really liking the chipboard sentiments!

Copics used: (coming tomorrow, 16.01.18)

8. Friendship

Another colouringless card today for day eight. The main focal point of the card is a text stamp from Papirdesign that I was so lucky to win on Elin‘s blog. It is a lovely text about friendship.

I have used various papers, I think they may be Pion this time, to which I have added white acrylic paint. I really do love that effect. The lace I got at Live and Love Craft, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and The Hobby House and I have used dies from Memory Box and Precious Marieke.

Special friendships

Here is a card I made this spring for the friendship card swap at Kit and Clowder, but I’ve only just now gotten around to adding it to the blog. There are far too many cards waiting to be posted, but I’ll try to put them up every few days now to get caught up a bit! For the card swap I sent this card as a blank one, with some motivational short quotes on the paper inside, as well as another CAS card which I wrote in and some goodies as well. Everyone loves goodies, right?!

This one is made using a Sugar Nellie image coloured in with copics. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the sentiment is by Lili of the Valley and the dies are by Noor Design.

Special friendships

I’ve just had a short leave from work as my summer holidays and the time passed by much too quick! I had planned to get several images coloured up and cards made and I haven’t even looked at my crafting stuff! I could use another holiday already! The weather this summer has been wet and cold compared to last year, so when we’ve had a little bit of sunshine I’ve hardly wanted to spend that time indoors!

Here is a card I made a few months ago, which I never got around to posting. It is quite a lot simpler than my usual, without being entirely CAS. I love it though. The image is by Sugar Nellie (first time I’ve used one of theirs) and is coloured in with copics. The other supplies are mostly from a local store this time!
