YNS: Happy Brrr-thday

It is time for another post as a guest designer for Your Next Stamp. As I wrote in my first post, I’m going to make all three projects in ways that are, at least in my opinion, rather typical for me. So this one is with a clean and simple style that includes smaller stamps, distress oxide ink and bright colours. I have in fact made two matching cards. The first one has a darker grey background.

The second card I made with this stamp set has a lighter coloured grey background and the distressed background goes vertically across the middle.

Copics used: N0, N1, N3, N5, N7, RV00, RV09, RV52, RV55, RV69, Y11, Y13, Y38, YR09, E41, E42, E43, E44

Let’s party!

Today marks the start of my week of blogging for Huldra Designstudio and for the first project I’ve combined it with a Stamping Bella party stamp. The text stamps are all from Huldra. I have kept it simple by only using colour on the stamped image and the rest is black and white with a touch of glitter. It’s a party after all!

I dag er første dagen i Huldra Designstudiouka mi og til det første prosjektet har jeg kombinert et Stamping Bella stempel med tekststempel fra Huldra. Jeg har gjort det enkelt og kun brukt farger på motivet, resten er i sort/hvit med litt glitter. Det er jo party!

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (brown hair) E21, E25, E27, E29, (black hair) BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, and if I can find my cheat note then I’ll add the pink and blue.. *sigh*, if you’d really like to know, just post a comment and I’ll try to remake the combination if I can’t find the note!

My favourite kind of party

There is a big fancy yearly contest going on at MFT Stamps. And there is nothing like that kind of contest to make you doubt yourself, hahaha. I’ve spent a couple of days just staring at the stamps wondering which to use and what to make with them. Then I coloured up a few various ones in matching colours before staring at them some more.. I decided mostly how I wanted my card on Friday, but didn’t get it finished before going away for the weekend. So now that I am home it is finally done.

Colourful, cheerful and party is the look I went for. In pink and yellow. Oh, and loads of different type of animals to symbolise all the different kind of people that are your friends.

I’ve decided to enter it into the colouring challenge. I have used stamps from loads of different stamp sets and coloured them in with Copics. (I will update this post tomorrow after work with the list of the stamp sets), stamping ink from MFT Stamps and Memento, Distress Oxide Inks for the background and kept the rest plain.

Copics used: RV17, RV52, RV55, Y11, Y13, Y17, Y19, E41, E42, E43, E44, E70, E71, E74, E77, E79, C0, C1, C3, W0, W1, W3, R20

This card has been entered into the following challenge:

I decided to mix and match a few of the stamps. The cat, hat, presents and text stamps were fun to put together for this CAS card. I think they are perfect for fun party cards! You can find the various stamp sets here.

And guess what! The amazingly talented Christy has let me put one of her stamps on here for you all to download for free! How great is that?!

Zoe Party Girl

There are various reasons why I’ve not been very good at updating the blog very often for the majorty of the year so far. I am hoping it will change soon.

Here is the card I made for the most recent challenge at Copic Marker Norge. This month’s theme is bingo. I made three different lines: 1) Cheesecloth – Text – Flowers, 2) Lace – Flowers – Stitching, 3) Buttons – Text – Stitching.

The image I decided to use is a brand new addition to my collection and my first Make It Crafty image. She is called Zoe Party Girl. As always she is coloured in with Copic Markers.

Papers are by Panduro and Lili of the Valley, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts, the cheesecloth is purchased at Bikuben, and the lace is from Live and Love Crafts as well
