Hello Butterfly

I’ve had so much fun making backgrounds with the new background stamps from La-La Land Crafts. For this card I’ve used the one called Just for You. I think it is my favourite! I love how the pattern looks and that I can have it any colour or colour combination I want. I definitely need more background stamps!

Additionally I’ve used a Magnolia stamp which I’ve coloured in with Copic Markers, chipboard from Make It Crafty and sentiment from MFT Stamps and some candi I coloured in a matching colour.

Here is a photo from the side. The sentiment has been put on foam pads and the chipboard is in two layers.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, R20, (hair) BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, (purple) V12, V15, V17, V09, (yellow) Y11, Y13, Y19, Y38, (ground) W1, W3, W5

Teddy in hot air balloon

Do you remember the tag I shared on Monday? The La-La Land Crafts one? Well, the kid liked it and wanted one to use as a bookmark. I couldn’t say no to that, so I made it in the requested purples and pinks. I won’t show the background, as it has the kid’s name embedded, but basically it has the same bottom border die and the quote “a book is like a garden carried in the pocket“.

Purple Christmas Tilda

One of the two Christmas cards I made for March was a simple one and it features Magnolia’s Tilda. I’ve used a La-La Land Crafts christmas die and a border die by Pretty Pink Posh. I do like my cards clean and simple, and I never make enough purple Christmas cards!

Monsters!

Another boy’s birthday which I needed to make a card for. It almost looks like I’m making a habit out of making boy cards now! This time I decided to use monsters from Your Next Stamp. Aren’t they awesome? I cut them out by hand.

The background is made using Distress Oxide Ink. I then splashed water on it in rather big chunks which created a great contrasting effect. I added the coloured strip to the middle of the card and added the monsters on top so it looks like they’re stood up over the top of the card.

After I took the photos I used an alphabet die set and cut out the boy’s name in dark purple and put it underneath the happy birthday sentiment. The happy birthday sentiment is by My Favorite Things which I embossed in white. And the white dots? They’re candi by Craftwork Cards.

And from the side, where you can also see some of the doodling I did inside.

Copics used: V09, V12, V15, V17, R81, R85, YG01, YG13, G07, G28, Y13, Y38, YR09, C1, C3, C9

Molly with birthday cake

It is the first Tuesday of the month today. That means it’s Tiddly Tuesday and a new challenge. This time around we’d like to see you make projects using the lovely character Molly! I decided to use Molly Celebrates for this.

You know what’s funny? Because I use very little flowers on Christmas cards and have been so fond of making clean and simple cards of late, I was really stuck when I decided to add flowers. Slightly baffled by this I just sat down on the sofa to read for a while, and then when I got back and played with it, it seemed to go somewhat already. It felt rather weird just staring at the flowers and wondering what to do with them, though! haha.

The papers I’ve used on this card are all from Bazzill (plain) and Maja Design (patterned). I really do love this colour. I’ve, once again, painted the edges with white acrylic paint. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts (now closed), I coloured up some candi in matching purples and then used a sentiment by My Favourite Things (MFT Stamps) which I embossed with white.

Here is a close-up of the colouring. You can also see the die cut leaves, which are from a La-La Land Crafts die.

Copics used: (hair) E08, E18, E19, E49, E97, (skin) E00, E02, E04, E13, E15, (dress and shoes) BG70, BG72, BG75, BG78, C0, C3, C5 (cake) V12, V15, V17, Y19, E08, C0, C3 + white gel pen
