You have my heart

Another card ready for the MFT Stamps Superstar contest. This time I’ve made one for the Clean and Simple Genius category.

All the stamps are from the Ewe are the Best stamp set, the sentiment included. It was a little bit fiddly stamping them all on one layer as that is something I very rarely do, at least not several on one. The you die is half of the miss you die and it’s been cut out on the same paper I’ve used to frame the card; the green in the Watercolor Wash Brights paper pad. Everything has been stamped with Memento and coloured in with Copics. You can find a list of the colours I used at the bottom of this post.

Copics used: (grass) G21, G40, YG61, YG63, YG67, (dark brown) E70, E71, E74, E77, (light brown) E41, E42, E43, (grey) C0, C1, C3, C5, (heart) R22, R24, R27, R39, (sky) B60

This card has been entered into the following challenges:

Colouring video: Summer Dress Molli

It is Thursday and time for my second La-La Land Crafts tutorial. This time I’m going to colour up the entire image in no-lines. The previous LLLC video I did only covered how to do a sparkly dress (also no-lines), but this one includes both the skin and hair as well as the spotted dress. The stamp I have used is Summer Dress Molli

Copics used: (skin and face) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, E25, R20, R22, B00, B02, B05 (hair) E41, E42, E43, E44 (dress) G40, G21, G82, YG63, Y11, Y13, Y17, Y19 + white sharpie marker

LLLC: Summer Dress Molli

So, I bet you know all about the NEW RELEASE at La-La Land Crafts by now! I’m going to show you quite a few more projects I’ve made today and tomorrow, also.

First up today is another shaker card. This time I’ve used tiny glass pearls in the shaker area, and kept it small. Summer Dress Molli has been coloured in with no-lines technique and copics as usual and I’ve used loads of the new dies from this release. You’ll find a list of everything at the bottom of the post, and of course direct links to the products!

As most my cards yesterday were blue, I decided to go with teal, green and yellow as the combination for this. I’m not sure I’ve ever used that combination previously, but I really do like it! The paper I’ve used is by Poppydesign, and I’ve used a sail boat charm which I added on thin rope.

LLLC: Sassy Mermaid Molli

There is a NEW RELEASE at La-La Land Crafts TODAY! Wooo! It has a maritime theme and contains 2 background stamps, 3 clear stamp sets, 9 rubber stamps and 3 stencil sets. Yup, you read that right! There are more background and clear stamps AND there are stencils! I have tried them all and they are great! Really great!

What is a new release without a shaker card?

As you might have seen, I seem to colour up more no-lines than not with LLLC stamps, so of course it is another one of those! This time it is a mermaid and she was quite fun to colour up. If you want to colour up the tail like I have, then you can just use the technique I showed in the sparkly dress video here. It works for this as well!

For the background I have used both the big background stamp as well as the two sets of smaller fish. I’ve also used the smaller fish on the background inside the shaker area (made them with clear embossing powder), but it is a bit hard to see as I have layed the card down so you can see all the pretty sequins!

Stamps:
Sassy Mermaid Molli
Jaws Because clear stamp
My Anchor background stamp

Dies:

Molly with cake

The colour theme for the magazine was greens and yellows, so I decided, very last minute, to do a really bright, cheerful, green card! I used various papers to create a layered card. I wanted lots of layers as the other card I made was clean and simple.

I decided to use a Tiddly Inks stamps for this, Molly Celebrates seemed suitable for the occasion and she is coloured in with copics. I decided to both distress the edges and use frantage on top.

For the greeting I went with a printed out work onto one of the background papers and coloured up one of Make It Crafty‘s chipboards in colours matching the dress. To soften the edges a little I decided to paint all the edges with white acrylic paint. Then I added a ribbon and some sparkly green paper to make the card even more festive!

As a few photos of the card was required I will show them here. too!

This is a close-up of the greeting and chipboard. I used the same colours on the chipboard as I did on the dress. The same goes for the icandy.
