Elephant birthday

On Tuesday, a friend and I decided that we were going to attempt the new MFT Stamps sketch challenge, no matter what it was, when the new one was out. That was yesterday. My card came along pretty nicely. I used some stamps I coloured up a while back and kept the same colour scheme for the rest of the card, using blue, turquoise and lime green Distress Oxide inks. I cut out the coloured panels using dies from MFT Stamps and the stamps are also from them as well, the Happy Hippos and Adorable Elephants sets. I finished the card off with a Norwegian sentiment, which means happy birthday, by Mathia Design (Hobbykunst) and a few enamel dots from Altenew.

This card has been entered into the following challenge:

MFT Stamps – Sketch challenge #490

Eat cupcake and be happy

I’m trying to get quite a few of the images I’ve coloured up for the two(!) colouring challenges that Kathy Raccosin has been hosting on Instagram so far this year onto cards. I think it’s going reasonably well, but the pile is rather large so I reckon I’ll be at it for quite some time! For now I will try to have a blog post every other day. Sometimes I do wonder if I’ll ever get caught up and only have a few finished coloured images laying around…

As usual I’m keeping it simple. I cut a big of a stripy background and layered over my coloured panel. Then I found a chipboard I wanted to use, coloured it up and made a matching sentiment. A bit of coloured card stock for the card base and some enamel dots and voilà! The stamp I’ve used is from Alex Syberia’s Etsy shop and is coloured up with Copic Marker.

LotV flying past

There is a new Lili of the Valley release today and it is full of cute little boy stamps! I absolutely love them and the one I will show you first is definitely one of my favourites! As soon as I saw the image I knew how I wanted to the card. Isn’t it great when that happens?

Whimsy morning glory bunny

I have a layered card in purple and turquoise for you today as part of my projects for the March digital release at Whimsy Stamps. I’ve used Crissy’s Morning Glory Bunny.

The papers are by Lili of the Valley, butterfly dies by Rayher and my usual lace/ribbon combo along with some Altenew enamel dots and my own sentiments.

Copics used: N0, N1, N3, G21, G24, G94, G99, BG23, BG57, BG78, V12, V22, V25, V28

Whimsy blog hop

Blog hop time! Are you ready?!

I have made a non-romance type card, because there are different kinds of love. This card is for someone very special indeed, and I guess it is more a mix of Agape and Storge kind of love, instead of Eros. More info on the different kinds of love, and the whole blog hop, on the Whimsy Stamps blog.

There are also chances to win from random comments on a few different DT creations. The hop runs until 2pm EST (that is 20:00 here in Norway) on Valentine’s Day 14th February. The grand prize is 5 digital stamps and there are winners on three blogs who will win one digital image each, as well as some extra chances on the Whimsy Stamps blog itself.

The card has been made using some of my favourite dies and for once I also used flowers on it! Cheesecloth, lace and ribbon are all present on this layered card with Papirdesign and Maja Design paper. The adorable stamp is from the Wee Stamps collection at Whimsy Stamps and is called Dreamy Dragon.

The first thing you might notice is that I’ve changed the background image of my photo, haha. Well, that’s because this card has a grey base on the outer most layer which didn’t look great with my usual grey background. So now you know that.

Anyway, we’re hopping a bit at random, so you can go visit whoever you like! Just make sure you leave a comment while you’re here, for a chance to win.

Here is another photo for you as well

So hop along and visit one of these wonderful ladies to see what they have made, or better still… go visit them all! Here is a list of the wonderful DT with links to their blog. It’s in alphabetical order!
