Blue floral ballerina

A very special co-worker of mine had her 60th birthday quite recently, so I wanted to make her a special card. She loves blue, and knitting, so they were two of the things I wanted to include. I also wanted to colour up something fiddly as I knew she would appreciate it. The stamp I decided to use is one of my favourites at Aurora Wings. It’s so pretty! Everything is coloured up with Copics and then I stamped a Noor Design flourish in pale blue around the edges of the image.

The papers are by Papirdesign, the charm by (probably) Kort og Godt, the flowers by Live and Love Crafts as well as Wild Orchid Crafts. The leaf dies and the scalloped circle are both from La-La Land Crafts. As the final touches I added some cheese cloth, transparent water drops and candi which I coloured in a matching blue.

Here you can see the card viewed from the side.

Here is a close-up of the colouring.

Copics used: (hair) BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, (skin) E00, E04, E13, R20, (dress) B32, B34, B39

Autumn mushroom

On this card I’ve had fun playing with distress oxide inks! They were a recent purchase and I’ve never played with distress inks to make backgrounds before, so it was just to give it a go really. I was playing around with a yellow and an orange shade, splashed on some water and cut out a strip. Completely unintentionally it ended up being the starting point of a new card!

I coloured the image, a stamp by Ching-Chou Kuik, with Copics makers a while ago, but hadn’t made it into a card as I couldn’t seem to decide on the design. I cut it out by hand and then glued it onto the card. Then I cut out some brown card stock using a Papirdesign die to make the sentiment.

Copics used (probably… I can’t find where I wrote them down so this is a semi-guess): (red) R22, R24, R27, R29, R89, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (grey) W0, W1, W2, W3, W5, W7, (hair, unsure..) possibly the E50s, (green, unsure, but possibly) YG01, YG03, YG63, YG67

A thank you card

It has been a while since I coloured up a Wee Stamps image, so I thought I was due using one again. This super cute little girl is one of my favourites and this time I decided on a blue and purple combination!

The Kort og Godt charm, twine, Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, various papers (Lili of the Valley and Pion Design for sure) together with a dash of acrylic paint and an embossed Papirdesign stamp make up this card. I made it for one of my co-workers as her leaving card and the text says thank you very much.

And here is another photo, just for fun.

Copics used: (dress) B91, B95, B97, B99, (hår) E08, E18, E19, E49, E97, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (flower) V01, V05, V06, V09, (yellow) Y04, Y38, YR09, (floor) W1, W3, W5

30. Pionsettia lollipop card

Two days ago I had an inspirational post up at Copic Marker Norge where I was showing off two cards made with the same image. The first one appeared here on the 28th and the second is due today. This one is a lollipop card. If you click on the image to the right you can view the post where I added the first of these, which was a clean and simple card. Using one image on two completely different cards is quite fun to do actually!

The image for these two cards was the pretty pionsettia by Power Poppy. I’ve used various paper from Papirdesign, Lemoncraft and Maja Design for this one. Some memory box showflakes in red glitter, cheese cloth and white acrylic paint help make up the card.

Copics used: (red) R22, R24, R27, R59, R89, (green) YG00, YG03, YG63, YG67, (yellow) Y13, YR16, E08, (background) E43

 

Here is a photo of the two next to each other. As you can see, I have also angled the flower a bit different on the two projects.

24. Merry Christmas, everyone!

Merry Christmas everybody! We celebrate here in Norway today, on the 24th of December. After a while of mandatory Christmas programs on the TV we’ll get dressed and head to my parents for Christmas dinner. Yum! Can’t wait!

Today’s post features as a windy Mo Manning image! I’ve decided to keep the card looking cold, but keeping the colours on the image as well. I’ve used Maja Design, Bazzill, Søstrene Grene and Papirdesign paper along with the obligatory dash of acrylic paint! I do love that effect very much! I’ve made a few snowflakes with a Memory Box die, added some Craftworks Cards’ card candi, cheese cloth, twine and Kort og Godt charm. The sentiment is part of the Maja Design papers.

The image has been coloured with Copics, as always. I’ve added some windy white bits over it using embossing and I quite like the effect of it!

Here is a view of the bottom left side of the card so you can easier see some of the details with the charm and how the acrylic paint and embossed snow work on the image.

And the obligatory funky view!
