LLLC: Valentines

With carpal tunnel syndrome in both wrists, card making is a little bit of a challenge at the moment. The cause of it should make it go away on its own in a month’s time or so, though, and I cannot wait for my hands to work normally again!

I’ve made a CAS card for today’s La-La Land Crafts theme of Valentines. All the products I’ve used is listed below. It was fun to use Washi tape as the only background on a card. The very few rolls I have matches what I’d coloured up perfectly!

Stamps:
Garland Marci
Dream Come True clear stamp

Dies:
Heart Garland
Double Stitched Stars
Stitched Nested Circles
Love Always
Mini Butterflies

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, E25, E43, R30, R32, (hair) BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, (dress) E41, E42, E43, N0, N1, N3, R30, R32, R35

Colouring video: Marci with Snowman

I am back with a new video today. It is my turn for a tutorial on the La La Land Crafts blog. I’ve decided to colour up another one of their stamps in no-lines. This time I’ve gone with Marci with Snowman. Everything is coloured with resonably soft colours this time and I’ve used somewhat nontraditional winter colours.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Today is the day we celebrate Christmas in Norway and I have the honour of showing off a project for the last day of the Christmas calendar over at Copic Marker Norge. I spent forever and a half to decide on what to colour and eventually decided to combine two images from Mo’s Digital Pencil (singing elf Brynn and singing elf Wynn) and colour it up with no-lines. It went great until the very end where a great red blob threatened to ruin the image. Thankfully my stubbornness came in handy and I managed to fix it up reasonably well, so I don’t think you can see it too well know without knowing it’s there.

I’ve used paper from Papirdesign, a sentiment from Kort og Godt and then twine and ribbon and lace and a charm as well from various places.

And with this card I’d like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

Colouring video: Summer Dress Molli

It is Thursday and time for my second La-La Land Crafts tutorial. This time I’m going to colour up the entire image in no-lines. The previous LLLC video I did only covered how to do a sparkly dress (also no-lines), but this one includes both the skin and hair as well as the spotted dress. The stamp I have used is Summer Dress Molli

LLLC: Mother’s Day

Friday is now my new designated La-La Land Crafts day. The theme of the week is Mother’s Day. Here we had our Mother’s Day back in February.

I’ve once again coloured up one of their stamps with the no-lines technique. For some reason I seem to prefer colouring their stamps that way. Who knew I’d ever warm up to that feeling! It’s a cool challenge, though, and I’m getting more and more confident with it. I added a little bit of texture to her skirt so it has a bit of a denim feel to it. You can find a link to the stamp and the list of colours below.

I’ve used some Maja Design paper to go with the background stamp from LLLC which I did in a matching purple ink. Isn’t it pretty?! I absolutely love it! The various dies are listed at the bottom of the post. The butterflies are just so pretty and I love that heart die! As I didn’t really have a fitting sentiment I could emboss onto the dark blue background, I simply just wrote it myself! That works, too, right?! The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts.
