Aurora Wings angel

Do you remember that I used Young Angel by Aurora Wings not so long ago? Well, I had another request for a card using that stamp and that is what I’m going to show you today. This card request was also quite specific with orange being the main colour and using loads of embellishments.

Orange.

When someone asks me to do orange I’m stuck. I’m not a particular fan of the colour and I very rarely use it. But there I was with orange as the main colour, staring at my markers, determined to find a combination I could be happy with.

And I did.

I am so happy with this orange combination. Like… so happy that I might use orange again… for fun!! Yes, that surprised me as well. Now I’m glad I accepted this challenge.

I’ve used papers by Pion Design and MFT Stamps as well as dies from Joy Craft, Precious Marieke, La-La Land Crafts and a puncher by Martha Stewart. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and The Hobby House.

Copics used: (skin) E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E31, E35, E37, E29, (green) YG13, YG17, YG67, (wings) N0, N1, N3, (orange) YR04, YR07, YR21, YR23

Book fairy

I was asked to make a confirmation card for a girly girl who likes books, cats and plays the piano. This stamp from Ching-Chou Kuik was the first one that came to mind and I think it’s pretty perfect. It’s a bit fiddly to colour up all the details, but I think it went alright.

For decorations I’ve used dies from La-La Land Crafts, Papirdesign and a Martha Steward puncher together with an old book page, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts as well as my favourite lace, a darker semi-transparent ribbon and a metal note charm hanging on twine. The papers are from Maja Design.

Wee Sweety

I had card on order recently that was quite specific in its request. It was to be pale blue, using a specific stamp and loads of embellishments, ideally loads of butterflies. The stamp is by Wee Stamps/Whimsy Stamps.

I’ve used dies from Joy Craft, MFT Stamps, Precious Marieke, La-La Land Crafts and Rayher. The stamp I’ve used on the edge of the coloured image is by Joy Craft as well and the leaves are made with a Martha Stewart puncher. The papers are by Maja Design and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts.

Copics used: (skin) E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) N5, N7, N9, (blue) B000, B91, B93, B95, B97, (orange) YR07, YR23, (grey) B20, B23

I had a request for a couple of baby cards recently so of course I had to use Lili of the Valley images for them! They have such a wide range of brilliant baby stamps and they’ve been my favourite long before I got on the DT! I was asked to avoid the traditional girly pinks so I actually decided to give orange a go for a baby card. I think it worked really well and despite my dislike for orange I quite like this. I guess orange is growing on me!

I’ve used various Maja Design papers, my favourite lace and a Make it Crafty chipboard.

Copics used: W0, W1, W3, W5, YG13, YG67, YR07, YR20, YR21, YR23, E41, E42, E43, N0, N1, N3

Sympathy Angel

There hasn’t been a whole lot of non-DT cards here lately, so I figure it’s time to post up a few more of those. Today I’m showing you a sympathy card I made on order. It is not often I make this kind of card as a layered card. I gave myself the challenge of colouring up in very pale shades which is rather unusual for me, but I felt this kind of card needed a soft feeling to it.

The stamp is Young Angel by Aurora Wings and the papers are various ones by Maja Design. I’ve used dies from Memory Box and La-La Land Crafts, and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Here is another photo of the card.
