The way you move

Last weekend I popped by Hobbykunst, one of the card making shops near where I live. This stamp, from Stamping Bella, is one of the few things that came back home with me. I will be back there next week to hold a demonstration on how to colour with Copic Marker, primarily on My Favorite Things stamps.

Neste uke er jeg innom Hobbykunst på Karihaugen i Oslo for å ha demo med Copic Marker-fargelegging, både lørdag og søndag. Ta turen innom hvis du vil se hvordan jeg fargelegger i hovedsak My Favorite Things-stempler. Stemplet jeg har fargelagt til dette kortet finner du her.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, R20, R22, (green) YG01, YG13, YG17, YG67, (pink) RV63, RV66, RV69, (hair) E08, E18, E19, E49, E97, (grey) N0, N3

Tiddly Molly celebrates

It is the first Tuesday of the month and that means we have a new challenge at Tiddly Inks. This time we’re playing tic tac toe. I’ve done both diagonal lines and the top row, so dies – stamp – ribbon, dies – patterened paper – lace and lace – stamp – embossing. My card is made using the Tiddly Inks stamp Molly Celebrates. I’ve used paper from Maja Design, dies from MFT Stamps and LLLC as well as my favourite lace and some ribbon I had laying around.

Copics used: (skin) E0000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E08, E18, E19, E49, E97, (turquoise) BG11, BG15, BG18, BG49, BG78, (black) N5, N7, N9, (pink) RV63, RV66, RV69, (yellow) YR20, YR23, E97 + white gel pen and a black 0.3 multiliner

LotV baby girl

Does it seem like I’ve made a lot of baby cards as of late? Well, I have! And I still haven’t shared them all on here, so you’ll be seeing a few more. As usual it is the Lili of the Valley images that I love most for these cards, so that is what I’ve used here too. This card was also made on request. It was to be cute, pink and reasonably simple.

I’ve used paper from MFT Stamps, dies from La-La Land Crafts and Linda Mønstre Design as well as chipboard from Make it Crafty.

Copics used: N0, N1, N3, R81, R83, R85, Y11, Y13, Y08

Sympathy Angel

There hasn’t been a whole lot of non-DT cards here lately, so I figure it’s time to post up a few more of those. Today I’m showing you a sympathy card I made on order. It is not often I make this kind of card as a layered card. I gave myself the challenge of colouring up in very pale shades which is rather unusual for me, but I felt this kind of card needed a soft feeling to it.

The stamp is Young Angel by Aurora Wings and the papers are various ones by Maja Design. I’ve used dies from Memory Box and La-La Land Crafts, and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Here is another photo of the card.

Copics used:(pink) RV00, RV52, RV55, RV66, (green) YG61, YG63, (grey/white) W1, W3, W5, (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E31, E34, E37, Y000

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
