LLLC: With sympathy

For my La-La Land Crafts project this week I have a very clean and simple card. This is mostly because I want my sympathy cards to be very plain. I’ve kept it in soft colours, mostly keeping to a mid shade of grey as well as white. You can find a list of the products I’ve used below the photo.

Stamps:
Paper Doll Marci – Happy
Filler words – Print clear stamps

Dies:
Double stitched ovals
Pierced scalloped ovals
Sympathy
Mini butterflies

Copics used: (skin) E0000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E21, E25, E27, E29, (dress) N0, N1, N3, (heart) R22

A birthday card for you

I really liked the colours they have for the current colour challenge at MFT Stamps, so I decided to try to make a card for it. Thankfully my hands cooperated enough to let me! I’ve used a stamp and word die from MFT Stamps, paper from Lili of the Valley as well as a circular die from La-La Land Crafts.

Here is a close-up

Wintery hugs

It is time for some mid-way inspiration for the current Copic Marker Norge challenge. It’s moodboard themed as usual and this time I was inspired by it being nature as well as pink and grey hues. I opted for making a rather simple card, keeping the colours and its colours in focus. The image is by Mo’s Digital Pencil and is called Ragged Winnie.

The text has been made using Distress Oxide inks and some Huldra Designstudio sentiments. Oh and the frame? That is Maja Design paper.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E53, E55, E57, E59, (pink) R81, R83, R85, R39, (grey) N0, N2, N4, N6, N8

31. Happy New Year, and how dots make a difference

First off I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year! Go easy on the bubbles with the children around, and take a moment to remember all the good things that happened to you the past year before fretting over a new one. I hope the new year will bring you creative moments and great memories that last a lifetime!

Today I have a simple card I was challenged to do. Well, two, actually. It seems fitting to add today, the last day of the year. It is definitely the day to get the bling on! The challenge I was given, by a fellow Copic Marker Norge design team member, Kjersti B., was to make something metallic. I decided I should try colouring in metallic, and for some reason picked an image with loads of folds in the dress and funky hair. Why not doubling the challenge, right? Oh, and I asked if I should make it sparkle or not, so when she let me choose I decided to do both…

Anyway, here are the finished cards. I’ve used glittery paper around the image on the non-sparkly one, but kept it without embellishments etc. I think the colouring turned out alright as well. It wasn’t too difficult colouring up something metallic. I’ve used an image from Make it Crafty, called Girl with Glass Slipper.

So what about the glittery one? Well, I used the exact same colours for the dress, but I added a whole bunch of dots everywhere. It really sparkles, doesn’t it?! Throwing a lot of dots in the mix can really transform a dress!

Copics used: (silver) C1, C3, C5, C7, C9, (hair) E08, E18, E19, E49, E97, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, (purple on card 1) V12, V15, V17, 100, (red on card 2) R22, R59, R89, W9 + two different white pens.

Thank you so much for picking my card!

Phoenix

It is Friday and time for another progressive challenge at Art by Mi Ran’s Facebook group. Basically you join the group, follow the guidelines to purchase the image and enter in the challenge, then next month when the new challenge is up you get the image given to you as long as you took part the previous month. Great right?! This month we’re playing with Phoenix. If you’d rather not play along, she’ll be available for purchase next month in Art by Mi Ran’s Etsy shop.

I made my card reasonably simple after I had coloured the image in with copics. I used a few dies from Noor Design and had fun with some black gesso.
