LLLC: Thank you

Today I have used this super cute Thinking of You Marci to make a Thank You card. I decided to go with bright cheerful colours, in a fun colour combination.

The papers are primarily by Maja Design and Bazzill, the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. All the die cuts are from La-La Land Crafts. I just love how easy they are to cut out!

Uptown girls with sparkly dresses

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

Teddy bear birthday party

Once again I’ve made quite a simple card. I’ve coloured up some party bears from Lili of the Valley, called Happy Bears, and gave them the entire top of the card. The bottom I made with Maja Design paper to which I added a stroke of BG53 and a My Favorite Things sentiment embossed onto red paper, as well as a couple of candi on the bottom corner.

Here you can see the card from the side. The sentiment was added on foam pads.

Copics used: (bears) E41, E42, E43, E44, R20 (turquoise) BG53, BG57, BG49, (red) R22, R39, (white) W3, (floor) W3, W5, W7, (pot) E71, E74, E77, (leaves) YG13, YG67

Pink and turquoise

1st of May already! That means it’s my turn to contribute with a bit of inspiration for this month’s Moodboard Challenge over at Copic Marker Norge! I’ve primarily been inspired by the colours here, and of course the flowers. I did contemplate pink hair, but opted for a pink dress instead. I really do love pink and turquoise together. I have no idea why I don’t use it more often on cards to be honest!

For this card I’ve used a stamp from Mo’s Digital Pencil. Isn’t she lovely? I’ve coloured it in with Copics as I always do and you can find the colours at the bottom of the post. I’ve used chipboard for the leaves from Make It Crafty, a background stamp (I’ve got to say it again, I absolutely love how I can now have a gingham pattern in any colour I fancy!) and dies from La-La Land Crafts, charm and twine from Kort og Godt and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. I made the sentiment myself.

As you can see from the photo below, I’ve added the image part onto foam tape and decorated the inside a little bit to match the colours of the front. I also made a matching box for this.

Copics used: (skin) E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair and basket) E50, E51, E53, E55, E57, (pink) RV52, RV55, RV66, R39, (green) YG00, YG13, YG61, YG63, YG67, G99, (white) C1, C3

LLLC – Hello Lovely and no-lines colouring

La-La Land Crafts is having a new release! Yey! They have these awesome new background stamps out! I’m show casing this project today using the set Hello Lovely and I have used both the background image and the sentiment. I stamped the background image using Distress Oxide. Opted for a clean and simple card.

I coloured the image up with copics (colours at the bottom of the post) and opted to give no-lines another go. It doesn’t happen all too often, I admit, but it was fun. It’s the only way I seem to be happy with colouring blonde hair at the moment. Afterwards I cut it out by hand and glued it onto the card before adding a bit of shadow directly onto the card under her feet.

You will find direct links to all the products I used below the photos.
