YNS Happy Heart

A little while ago I was asked if I wanted to be a guest designer for Your Next Stamp. I wasn’t entirely sure if I had time and energy, but I decided there was no way I could pass up the opportunity, and they did give me plenty of time! So here I am, guest designing! You can find this and a couple more of my cards on their blog this month.

The first card I’ve made for them I’ve made as a layered card. I’ve used this adorable bunny along with a great sentiment set and gumdrops. I love the gumdrops! They are perfect for my cards and I wish I had loads more of them right now!

Copics used: N0, N1, N3, RV53, RV55, RV66, G21, YG13, YG17, YG67

Another clean and simple card from me today. This time I’ve made a card using one of the flower stamps from Power Poppy. I had a bit of a accident with my copics right at the end when colouring it up, a big massive near-black coloured blob. I managed to fix it, mostly, and then I fussy cut the image. The background it something I made using one of the pink distress oxide inks and a heart stencil, and the text stamp is by Huldra Designstudio.

Copics used: (pink) RV52, RV55, RV17, R39, R89, (green) YG01, YG13, YG63, YG67, (brown) E21, E25, E29 + white pen

LLLC: Valentines

With carpal tunnel syndrome in both wrists, card making is a little bit of a challenge at the moment. The cause of it should make it go away on its own in a month’s time or so, though, and I cannot wait for my hands to work normally again!

I’ve made a CAS card for today’s La-La Land Crafts theme of Valentines. All the products I’ve used is listed below. It was fun to use Washi tape as the only background on a card. The very few rolls I have matches what I’d coloured up perfectly!

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:

Angelica and hearts

As it is the start of December we have another Progressive Challenge for you at Mi Ran’s Facebook group. Buy the first image this month, play along, and get next month’s image given to you! Fab deal, right? This month we are playing with Angelica. If you’d like to just purchase her, then she will be available in the Art by Mi Ran shop in January.
