Party girls

Someone special had her birthday recently and this seemed to be the perfect image for her birthday card. I used one of my favourite stamps by Stamping Bella and coloured it in with copic as usual. If you’d like to get a similar glittery effect as I have on the dresses, then the technique is the same as I’ve got in the sparkly dress tutorial (which you can find a link to in the tutorial section).

I’ve used a die from Papirdesign, and text stamp by Huldra Stamps. The card is kept mostly clean and simple, just the way I like it.

Here is card laid down flat.

Copics used: (girl on the left) E41, E42, E43, E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, B0, R22, R24, R27, R29, R59, (girl on the right) E08, E18, E19, E49, E97, E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, RV52, RV55, RV66, B0

Now for my card. I’ve used the new adorable Little Wishes together with the Just for You background stamp from La-La Land Crafts and a chipboard from Make It Crafty.

Here is a side on view of the card.

Flowers for mum

Today is the day we celebrate Mother’s Day in Norway, so of course I had to make a Mother’s Day card! I decided to try something a bit different yet again, and decided to use the stamped image as a border and crop off it. The beautiful flower stamp is from Power Poppy.

I used some textured card stock on the left side of the card with a couple of card candi and then I just printed a sentiment I made on the right side in the bottom corner. It is a very simple card and I quite like how it turned out!

Here is another photo:

Grow a little love, CAS

First Tuesday of the month meeeaaans new Tiddly Inks challenge, yey! Our theme this month is Give Love.

Tiddly Inks challenge means Tiddly Inks image, and it wasn’t hard to pick one of my favourites for this. It is called Grow a Little Love. I made a circular frame for her and cropped her to fit inside it, and with her hair peeking slightly outside it looks like a big speech bubble! I coloured in with Copics and made the heart background using distress oxide ink and a heart stencil from Carta Bella. The sentiment and hearts are from a TCP Studio stamp set which I embossed onto the card. A Magnolia border die and some pearls helped finishing off the card.

Copics used: (hair) E70, E74, E77, (skin) E00, E02, E04, E13, E15, (dark pink) RV14, R35, R39, R89, (pink) RV00, R81, R83, R85 + white gel pen

19. Girl eating gingerbread

I have had fun trying out some new stamp brands this December, as well as revisiting some old ones I haven’t used in quite a while! On this post I’m showing off a card I made for a secret santa swap using something I’ve never tried before, a C. C. Designs stamp! This adorable little girl has just taken a bite out of her gingerbread! Love it!

It’s been coloured up with copics, but I bet you knew that already. I’ve used various papers from Bazzill, Papirdesign, Panduro, Maja Design and Søstrene Grene. There is a bit of cheese cloth, Craftwork Cards’ card candi, acrylic paint, twine and a Kort og Godt charm. The main shape of the card is made with a Go Kreate XXL die and the snowflakes are made with a Memory Box die. I kept the card reasonably simple without a lot of embellishments, just loads of papers! Oh and the sentiment is from a Norsk Stempelblad stamp.

And here is the usual funky angle photo!
