A fun wedding card

I’ve popped by the Copic Marker Norge blog today with a wedding card, so I figured I should add it to my own blog as well, so I don’t forget! I’ve used various Maja Design papers, and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts primarily. The lace and pearl string and berry flowers are all from a shop that is now closed down. And the stamp? That is by Mo’s Digital Pencil.

Here is a close-up of the colouring.

Card featured in Ett Trykk

Right around new year, when people were busy deciding on what resolutions to make and whether or not to keep them the following day, I decided on a half random impulse to submit two cards for a magazine! Yup, that’s right. It even made it into the magazine! So I have now proudly had one of my cards featured in Ett Trykk. Yey! Although I really don’t like the background they decided to add to it.. but at least here on my blog they will be without that background. Yey!

I’ve used Mo’s Digital Pencil‘s dandelion girl stamp called Make a Wish for this. I absolutely adore her! I think it is one of my favourite Mo stamps! The paper is from Paper Cellar and the sentiment stamp is by Norsk Stempelblad.

I had to submit a couple of extra photos, so why not add them here as well!

Here is a close-up of the coloured image, too.

A bit of turquoise

We have a new challenge up at Copic Marker Norge and this is my inspirational card for it. On the moodboard for this month I was inspired by the colours: turquoise and white with a hint of yellow, as well the decorations and flowers. The image I chose for this is by Ching-Chou Kuik. I do love getting to make a card using my favourite colours!

I’ve used papers by Maja Design and Bazzill, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, a stamp from Noor Design to create the effect around the image which I used distress oxide ink on, a Happy Birthday stamp from My Favorite Things, and a border die from La-La Land Crafts.

Here you can see the card from a side on view. There are several elements put on foam pads to create a sense of dimension.

Here is a close-up of the flower arrangement

Goth Avery

I was requested to make another card for the Paper Nest Dolls to match the one I made at the start of the year. (You can find it here.) This time I went for soft pastels and pink, but kept the card design similar and the hair colour the same. Once again I made the sentiment myself and printed it straight onto the card base. The paper is by Paper Cellar.

Yup, I know the photo is a bit wonky, but hey!
