A shabby chic card

It doesn’t happen very often, but sometimes I do make cards without a coloured up image. Here I’ve used Maja Design paper together with one of their printed images. I’ve used white acrylic paint around all the edges, by favourite lace and some ribbon together with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The numbers are from a MFT Stamps die and the sentiment is by Mathia Design.

If you need me, I’ll be there

I have something as rare as a shaker card to share with you today. I hardly ever make them, but I figured it was time for another one. The bunny on moon stamp is by Mama Elephant, which I cut out by hand, and the stitched elements are made with MFT Stamps dies. I used a Maja Design paper in blue with stars on and then used darker blue shimmery stars for the shaker area. The chipboard (text and stars) were from Make it Crafty and I coloured them in matching colours. These were used together with a sentiment strip by CZ Design/Simon Says Stamp.

I’ve taken a photo of the card laying down flat as well so you can see the little stars I’ve added to the shaker area.

Girl, make a wish

For some reason I haven’t shared a card where I’ve used a Mo Manning stamp for quite a while now, so I thought today would be a good day for just that. This adorable stamp, Mona, simply screamed to be coloured up last month and now I’ve made it into a pretty simple card. I’ve used a frame die by MFT Stamps, a stamped sentiment by Pretty Pink Posh, a chipboard by Make It Crafty and some enamel dots by Altenew.

Pencil flowers on kraft

Here is the very first colouring I did using pencils. It made its way onto a card thanks to Elin who suggested this layout, inspired by a card made by Colorfulcluttereddesk on IG two years earlier, and mostly remote-controlled the making of this card. That is a very fun way to make a card, by the way, and I suggest you give it a try!

It was during one of the 30 day colouring challenges that I decided it was finally time to dig out my Prismacolor pencils and give them a try. I didn’t even have a pencil sharpener… but thankfully my other half hurried to the shop once I was done with the big flower as it was no way I was going to finish the rest of the card without sharpening a single pencil!

The gorgeous flower is a stamp by Power Poppy. The polaroid die is by MFT Stamps, the big letters are chipboard by Make it Crafty and the sentiment strip is made using Mathia Design stamps. The text means “hi, we’ll miss you”.

If anybody has a particular interest in knowing which pencils I’ve used, then I have written that down somewhere, so just pop me a message.

Stamping bella donuts (og kurs)

(Kursinfo lenger ned.) What a fun stamp to colour up! This yummy stamp is by Stamping Bella and I love how she is peeking up over the pile of donuts as she’s grabbing the top one! I kept the card simple by putting it off-centre on the purple card stock. I cut out the letters h, e and i using a MFT die (the word hei means hello) and then embossed a Mathia Design stamp onto black card stock to put on top. A few enamel dots and my card was done!
