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.

Birthday hedgehogs

It is time for a new challenge over at Copic Marker Norge and this time it’s lasting two months with the optional theme of animals. No option for us DT though, so animals it is. I decided to go with the super cute hedgehogs from MFT Stamps. Being unable to come up with any clever layout fast I decided to just use the current challenge sketch at MFT Stamps. I think it worked pretty well!

The stamps and dies are from MFT Stamps, too.

Copics used: E70, E71, E74, E77, E79, V91, V93, V95, R20, R22, YG61, YG63, YG67

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

Winter shaker as my final LLLC DT project

At the start of last year I made my very first La-La Land Crafts card. Now, 81 projects later, I’ve decided to step down off the design team as my time isn’t quite as predictable as before and it’s more difficult to commit to another half a year. It’s been fun to challenge myself with all the different themes and releases along the way. Thank you so much for having me as a part of your team!

For my final project, the theme is shaker card. I’ve decided to go with a clean and simple winter/Christmas card, if a shaker card can even be deemed as CAS… The white main background on the card is embossed using the snowflakes stencil to give it a bit of a texture.

Here is a photo of the card laying flat and the beads are all over the shaker area.
