Whimsy Wee Dolly

June is here and that means not only summer is official here, but also the new release over at Whimsy Stamps. For my release project this month I’ve coloured up Dolly from the Wee Stamps collection using Copic Marker. The text is in Norwegian and means “I greatly appreciate you”.

I’ve done similar to what I did on the card a few days ago, but instead of die cutting the background paper I’ve instead die cut the panel I’ve coloured up and made a long card instead of a tall one. It’s great how you can use one die to get different looking cards. You can find the border die here. And if you like to jazz up the text using some big letters, Whimsy has a great set here.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E08, E18, E49, E97, (green) G21, G24, G94, G99, (pink) RV10, RV17, RV32, RV34, (white) N0, N1, N3

Birthday wishes (og nytt kurs)

This weekend I’ve been busy with loads of visitors, but still had time to prepare a little for the next colouring class I’ll be having in March. This time it’s all about glitter and Stamping Bella.

Her er et av eksempelkortene til kurset jeg skal ha hos Hobbykunst i Oslo 14. mars. Denne gangen er det å fargelegge glittereffekt som er i fokus og motivet vi skal bruke er dette fra Stamping Bella. Du finner mer info og påmelding hos Hobbykunst. Fargene man kan velge mellom denne gangen er på kjolene: rød, hvit, turkis og svart.

Whimsy blog hop

Blog hop time! Are you ready?!

I have made a non-romance type card, because there are different kinds of love. This card is for someone very special indeed, and I guess it is more a mix of Agape and Storge kind of love, instead of Eros. More info on the different kinds of love, and the whole blog hop, on the Whimsy Stamps blog.

There are also chances to win from random comments on a few different DT creations. The hop runs until 2pm EST (that is 20:00 here in Norway) on Valentine’s Day 14th February. The grand prize is 5 digital stamps and there are winners on three blogs who will win one digital image each, as well as some extra chances on the Whimsy Stamps blog itself.

The card has been made using some of my favourite dies and for once I also used flowers on it! Cheesecloth, lace and ribbon are all present on this layered card with Papirdesign and Maja Design paper. The adorable stamp is from the Wee Stamps collection at Whimsy Stamps and is called Dreamy Dragon.

The first thing you might notice is that I’ve changed the background image of my photo, haha. Well, that’s because this card has a grey base on the outer most layer which didn’t look great with my usual grey background. So now you know that.

Anyway, we’re hopping a bit at random, so you can go visit whoever you like! Just make sure you leave a comment while you’re here, for a chance to win.

Here is another photo for you as well

So hop along and visit one of these wonderful ladies to see what they have made, or better still… go visit them all! Here is a list of the wonderful DT with links to their blog. It’s in alphabetical order!

Thanks for popping by and I hope you have a great Valentine’s Day with whoever you choose to spend it with, even if it’s just your favorite book character!

Big gift

Another layered card in red using Maja Design papers. I’ve really used a lot of this time around. The reason for that, I suppose, is that I have been making several cards at once so it’s handy to just use up all the paper, instead of saving half or 3/4 of something. This time I’ve used some cheese cloth and a Magnolia stamp with it, as well as a Papirdesign sentiment.

I should be back to adding the Copic numbers from tomorrow’s post onwards. If you are curious about any here, just pop a comment to this post.

Hugs for everyone

Today’s card is really quite simple. I’ve used grey card stock and drawn on loads of little stars, deliberately making them a bit wonky and different, then I’ve added a simple Papirdesign sentiment before using of the stamps from MFT Stamps as the focal point. I put it on a piece of foam so it’s not entirely flat. Cards don’t need to be very complicated.
