Funky girl bookmark

Can you ever have too many bookmarks? For me that answer is no! I love reading and I rarely manage to read just one book at a time. I am also terribly good at misplacing my bookmarks so having an extra supply of those is great. With a kid that also loves to read it’s just a great way to keep making bookmarks!

Går det ann å ha for mange bokmerker? Jeg tror ikke det. Jeg leser stort sett mer en enn bok av gangen, og har ikke alltid like god kontroll på hvor jeg legger fra meg bokmerkene når en bok er lest ut, så det er en god ide å ha flere liggende. Når i tillegg det er en som har begynt å lese i år så har man rett og slett enda en god grunn til å lage bokmerker!

I opted for pink, for a change, for this bookmark. I’ve used various dies from La-La Land Crafts, Memory Box and Precious Marieke, some washi tape, embossed a background and coloured up a stamp from Huldra Designstudio.

Wryn Wishes for hugs

It is Friday! Yey! The snow is finally nearly gone and we have decent spring weather and it has gotten reasonably warm rather quickly. I am loving it! Spent so much time outside this week!

Today it’s time to snow you another Tiddly Inks card, for Fab Friday! For this card I’ve used the lovely image Wryn Wishes. I’ve used a border die from La-La Land Crafts, leaves are from a Precious Marieke die and the hearts are from Memory Box. The hugs is a chipboard from Make it Crafty and I’ve used Maja Design paper. Around the image I’ve used a swirly leaf die from Noor Design and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Copics used: (hair) E08, E18, E19, E97, (skin) E00, E02, E04, E13, E15, (dress) V000, V91, V93, V95, (flower and dragonflies) W0, W3, Y11, Y19, R20, R22, YG13, YG67

Wryn fairy

Did you see the new release over at Tiddly Inks? There are so many cute ones and they have even got a few brand new clear stamps! Yey!

One of my favourites from this new release is the little fairy! The image is called Magical Day. I decided to doodle a bit on this one and gave her a striped top so she looks a little like a bee fairy! I also embossed the wings with gold glitter and white after colouring them yellow to make them sparkle.

It’s not a big surprise anymore than this is yet another CAS card. I made the background with a Tim Holtz stencil, some distress oxide inks and gold embossing powder. The butterfly is also coloured with distress oxide and cut out with a Precious Marieke die. I printed the words “my friend” onto the card base and then embossed a Little Birdie text stamp in white.

8. Friendship

Another colouringless card today for day eight. The main focal point of the card is a text stamp from Papirdesign that I was so lucky to win on Elin‘s blog. It is a lovely text about friendship.

I have used various papers, I think they may be Pion this time, to which I have added white acrylic paint. I really do love that effect. The lace I got at Live and Love Craft, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and The Hobby House and I have used dies from Memory Box and Precious Marieke.

Tall cake

I’ve been enjoying colouring up images by Mo’s Digital Pencil the past couple of weeks. This tall cake one I bought specifically to use for a couple of birthday cards I had coming up. Isn’t she the best?!

For the cake my sister insisted I needed to have some glitter. I used mostly transparent glitter, but with a bace layer of R00 and R12. As you can see from the colour list below, you don’t need to use a lot of Copics to colour up a pretty image and make it into a card. This time I stuck with just 2 colours for most of it, sometimes 3 if I was colouring up bigger areas. It was fun colouring up a lighter image again after the very bright contrast ones I’ve done in the past few blog posts!

I’ve used a fair few dies on this card: butterfly and leaf die by Precious Marieke, border die by La-La Land, alphabet die by Kaboks and gratulerer by Papirdesign. The flowers are as usual by Wild Orchid Crafts. And I used a bit of white acrylic paint around the edges of most elements.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (hair) E25, E29, E31, (clothes) W1, W3, YG01, YG03, YG67, (cake) E41, E43, R00, R12, Y13, YG16, (plate) C1, C3
