Birthday dragon

I randomly decided to follow a sketch this morning. I have only done that once or twice before, I think, but I saw it and thought why not. It is the sketch for the Wednesday Sketch Challenge at MFT Card Challenge. I figured I then might as well use their stamps and enter in the challenge, so I decided on the Magical Dragons and my favourite colour. The dragon stamp was combined with balloons from the Happy Hippos set and the sentiment from the Adorable Elephants set.

The paper is from Papermania, the circular die from La-La Land Crafts and some candi.

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.

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

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.

Monsters!

Another boy’s birthday which I needed to make a card for. It almost looks like I’m making a habit out of making boy cards now! This time I decided to use monsters from Your Next Stamp. Aren’t they awesome? I cut them out by hand.

The background is made using Distress Oxide Ink. I then splashed water on it in rather big chunks which created a great contrasting effect. I added the coloured strip to the middle of the card and added the monsters on top so it looks like they’re stood up over the top of the card.

After I took the photos I used an alphabet die set and cut out the boy’s name in dark purple and put it underneath the happy birthday sentiment. The happy birthday sentiment is by My Favorite Things which I embossed in white. And the white dots? They’re candi by Craftwork Cards.

And from the side, where you can also see some of the doodling I did inside.
