Smile – happy birthday!

There were three different categories for the MFT Stamps Superstar contest. The third one, which is where I am entering this card is called Innovation Master.

I have made half the card as a rainbow coloured shaker area. I’ve used a bunch of different Distress Oxide inks for the rainbow coloured background and flicked some water onto it with my fingers to get some texture. Then I used the big smile die and cut out the center. I did this on three layers in total (where I cut out the center part on the bottom two) and layered them up with some beads in four different colours to get some of the rainbow effect inside as well.

The stamps I’ve used are from three different stamp sets: Adorable Elephants, Magical Dragons and Birthday Chicks.

Here you can see the card laying down flat and the beads are all over.

And a photo from the side, because why not!

Oh and what copics I used? That will have to be added sometime tomorrow. I am way to tired to write anymore tonight, so I am going to bed! But hey, at least I made the card in time!

This card has been entered into the following challenge:

MFT Stamps Superstar contest – Innovation Master

Caithlin with present

Clean and simple really is a favourite of mine, so I thought I’d show you the card I made yesterday. Again it is inspired by Elin. I used a Mo’s Digital Pencil stamp and I have a small cluster of things in the corner. That is so Elin, right?

The adorable image is called Caitlin. Mo’s having a retirement sale and that is one of the stamps I picked up! I’ve coloured it in with copics and added some liquid pearls all around. The text sentiment is by MFT Stamps and I used small bits of washi tape. The paper is by Lawn Fawn and I LOVE it!

And from the side.

LLLC: Funky Squares

Ok, I admit it, I’ve used my favourite colours a lot for this NEW RELEASE at La-La Land Crafts. Soooo, it is time to bring in the other colours, I think. How about… a rainbow?!

Here I have used both of the stencils that were included in the set at the same time. I simply used some masking tape to tape them onto the card base so they wouldn’t move around too much. I then used various different distress ink colours going from a red and all through the rainbow over to purple.

To make Summer Dress Molli match (with what I think is a super cool background!) I gave her a two-tone dress going from purple to yellow highlights. To keep with the funky squares theme I used the fishing net die as well. And to add a bit more of the purple and yellow, I decided to make the banners in those colours in bright shades.

A little bit random

Today I am showing you the second card I made on (Inter)National Scrapbooking Day in an event hosted for Scandinavian scrapbookers. The challenge here was a photo of a layout by Skrapowisko. (If you like doing layouts, you need to see hers. They are superb!) I cannot seem to relocate this particular one on her website to show you, but I was inspired by her background and all the speech bubbles and text around the centre image. Also mostly pale colours.

I’ve used my Copic Markers to create the background, as well as to colour in the Ching-Chou Kuik image. You will find a list of all the colours at the bottom of the post as usual. All of the die cuts are from La-La Land Crafts. I’ve used sentiment stamps from MFT Stamps and Papirdesign.

Distressed rainbow, and a dragon

Today I have a very colourful card to show you. I made the background using various distress oxide inks, mostly just to see if I could manage to make something like a rainbow. I thought it turned out pretty cool so I flicked some water onto it to get the right effect and decided to keep it and use it as a background for a card. The stamp I chose to go with it is from Wild Rose Studio, and it had been forever since I last coloured it so it was about time, right?!

I decided, as usual nowadays, to keep the card clean and simple, so I used some plain card stock in a deep orange colour to which I added a text stamp from My Favorite Things.

Copics used: (green) YG01, YG13, YG63, YG67, (lilac) V00, V12, V15, V17, (yellow) Y11, Y13, Y19, (red) R22, R24, R59
