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┬áthe 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

Yesterday was (Inter)National Scrapbooking Day. The Paper Crafting hosted an event for Scandinavian scrapbookers where they had three challenges. As I spent most of the day outside in the sunshine, I didn’t really have time to take part until 8pm, but I hurried and managed to make two cards before midnight. Phew!

It was a lot of fun. Both cards are quite different to what I’ve done before. The first one I will show today, and the other will be available on my blog soon as well. Here the challenge was to use four colours from light turquoise to a darker green, as well as a yellow. (Optionally you could be inspired by the photo, but I chose the colours).

I decided to use my Tim Holtz stencil and coloured it in with my Y13 Copic Marker. Then I got out a couple of Papirdesign stamps and stamped with two different Distress Oxide Inks onto the background before I used some Washi tape for the dark stripes. After wondering what on earth to use with what I’d just made, I finally remembered my new Stamping Bella stamp which I had yet to use. Perfect, I thought! I coloured it in with my Copics and made their dresses (and drinks) sparkly! The bottom sentiment belongs to that stamp. Lastly I printed out some text and coloured in a Make It Crafty “girl” chipboard in matching colours.

Copics used: (skin) E00, E02, E15, (red haired girl) E08, E18, E19, E97, W5, W9, BG15, BG23, BG57, BG49, Y13, Y19, (black haired girl) BV23, BV25, BV29, W5, W9, Y13, Y19, Y38, BG57, BG75, BG78 YG67, G99, (drinks) RV23, RV55, RV66, (ground) C0, C3, C5 + white gel pen

It is the middle of October, and Copic Marker Norge is back with its regular monthly challenges! This time around we’re starting Christmas a little early.

I recently bought one of those stamping platforms. I love it! I am finally able to stamp properly, I’ve started embossing and I am once again using my stamps to colour up. For this reason I went with a rubber stamp for this card. One I once won. It is from Stamping Bella and I think it’s “totes adorbs”!

The card is being kept reasonably simple with a magnolia die cut border, some shiny purple card candy from Craftwork Cards and some paper scraps I had laying around. I believe the paper is by Creative Imagination, Lili of the Valley and Papirdesign. The sentiment is from Norsk Stempelblad, where I finally played with some embossing!

It was quite a fun image to colour up, actually, so I am sure there will be more of this kind before Christmas is upon us!
