I’ve made a couple of cards lately that doesn’t feature any coloured image. Instead it is the new rather large number die set from MFT Stamps that takes the spotlight. Here I’ve used some Maja Design paper, a couple of dies, some new lace and a bit of ribbon and flowers to make an elegant and soft coloured card.
First Tuesday of the month means time for a new Tiddly Inks challenge! It’s been a while since I’ve made inspirational cards for the challenges now, but this one should mean that I’m back properly. Yey! The theme this month is anything goes, so I’ve made a wedding card using The Honeymooners.
Copics used: N0, N1, N3, N5, N7, N9, R35, R39, R89, G00, G21, G94, G99, E41, E42, E43, B000
Do you remember that I used Young Angel by Aurora Wings not so long ago? Well, I had another request for a card using that stamp and that is what I’m going to show you today. This card request was also quite specific with orange being the main colour and using loads of embellishments.
When someone asks me to do orange I’m stuck. I’m not a particular fan of the colour and I very rarely use it. But there I was with orange as the main colour, staring at my markers, determined to find a combination I could be happy with.
And I did.
I am so happy with this orange combination. Like… so happy that I might use orange again… for fun!! Yes, that surprised me as well. Now I’m glad I accepted this challenge.
I’ve used papers by Pion Design and MFT Stamps as well as dies from Joy Craft, Precious Marieke, La-La Land Crafts and a puncher by Martha Stewart. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and The Hobby House.

I was asked to make a confirmation card for a girly girl who likes books, cats and plays the piano. This stamp from Ching-Chou Kuik was the first one that came to mind and I think it’s pretty perfect. It’s a bit fiddly to colour up all the details, but I think it went alright.
For decorations I’ve used dies from La-La Land Crafts, Papirdesign and a Martha Steward puncher together with an old book page, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts as well as my favourite lace, a darker semi-transparent ribbon and a metal note charm hanging on twine. The papers are from Maja Design.
I had card on order recently that was quite specific in its request. It was to be pale blue, using a specific stamp and loads of embellishments, ideally loads of butterflies. The stamp is by Wee Stamps/Whimsy Stamps.
I’ve used dies from Joy Craft, MFT Stamps, Precious Marieke, La-La Land Crafts and Rayher. The stamp I’ve used on the edge of the coloured image is by Joy Craft as well and the leaves are made with a Martha Stewart puncher. The papers are by Maja Design and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts.
