Rainbow haired fairy

First Tuesday of the month again already! You know what that means, right? New Tiddly Inks challenge! I suppose my card looks like the theme is colour explosion or something, but it is in fact let’s go round! That means circular projects. They’re fun to make, right? At least I think so!

I decided to go with Fairy Tenderhearted (Tiddly Inks stamp, of course) for my card and I gave her a rainbow coloured hair and two-toned wings, with glitter! And so from there I apparently went completely crazy with the colours! I’m not sure I’ve ever used so many colours in so many places before. Fun, though, I admit!

The embossed sentiment is by My Favorite Things, the your chipboard by Make it Crafty and the birthday die by La-La Land Crafts.

Here is another photo from a different angle.

Sending smiles tag

It is Monday again so we’re due another La-La Land Crafts post. This time the theme is anything goes so I decided to make a tag! LLLC is having a sale until tomorrow night as well. Check out the info at the bottom of this post.

The adorable teddy bear in the hot air balloon is called Sending Smiles. Isn’t it adorable? I coloured it up with Copics and played around with various combinations of colours which I rarely use together. It is fun to play around with new combination, I think.

I think the tag itself is absolutely gorgeous. What I did was that I cut it out twice and glued the sides together so I’d get the same background front and back. then I cut out some various bits in various colours to make it even more colourful. It was such a fun tag to make and there will be plenty more of those from me for sure!

Stamp:
Sending Smiles (sentiment also from there)

A bit of turquoise

We have a new challenge up at Copic Marker Norge and this is my inspirational card for it. On the moodboard for this month I was inspired by the colours: turquoise and white with a hint of yellow, as well the decorations and flowers. The image I chose for this is by Ching-Chou Kuik. I do love getting to make a card using my favourite colours!

I’ve used papers by Maja Design and Bazzill, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, a stamp from Noor Design to create the effect around the image which I used distress oxide ink on, a Happy Birthday stamp from My Favorite Things, and a border die from La-La Land Crafts.

Here you can see the card from a side on view. There are several elements put on foam pads to create a sense of dimension.

Here is a close-up of the flower arrangement

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (hair) E41, E42, E43, E44, (dress) BG49, BG53, BG78, G40, Y04, Y38, E97, (shadow) W0, W1, W3, W5, W7, (flowers) RV17

Birthday hippo and elephant

Happy Easter everybody. I decided to take some for myself today and make a card. The stamps I’ve used are by My Favorite Things. Aren’t they adorable? they are from the Happy Hippo og Adorable Elephants sets.

The paper I have used is by Papirdesign, the border die is by Pretty Pink Posh and the birthday die is by La-La Land Crafts.

I decided to go with another clean and simple layout. This is definitely a current favourite, as I’m sure you’ve all figured out by now. Other favourites are these darling stamps and the birthday die.

Here is another photo:

Copics used: (purple) V91, V93, V95, V99, (red) R00, R20, R22, (grey) C1, C3, C5, (yellow) Y11, Y13, Y19

Thinking of you Marci

Another Monday, another La-La Lands Crafts day! It is getting pretty close to easter and I doubt I will have much time to craft over the next two weeks or so. For once I am pretty much on top of things, though. Go me!

This week our theme is Flowers. A good excuse for me to make a new cards with flowers on. You will find a list of products I’ve used with links to the items below the photos, above the list of Copics. I’ve gotten better at layering up cards again lately at least, not all clean and simple cards, but I am still not great at using flowers on a lot of projects. But here is one! The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts, the papers by Maja Design and charm by Tim Holtz.

The leaves are pretty great. They cut wonderfully and you have one going each direction! Yey!

Here you can see how I’ve layed up the dies. First the Filigree Flower under the image, then the Deco Border around the image itself, and lastly the butterfly on top.

I love these butterflies! I’ve given them a prominent body with a string of pearls.

Here is one final photo of the card from the floral arrangement side.

Stamp:
Thinking of You Marci

Dies:
