LLLC: Let’s be Mermaids!

It’s been a busy couple of weeks and then not feeling great on top has kept my blog very quiet. I am back again now though, with my Team Friday make for La-La Land Crafts. This week we are showcasing mermaids! As the last one I did was very green and blue, I decided to opt for something completely different: yellow and pink! It’s quite fun to colour mermaids, I think, and I love the matching sentiment! You can find links to all the products below the photo of the card.

LLLC: Summer Dress Molli

So, I bet you know all about the NEW RELEASE at La-La Land Crafts by now! I’m going to show you quite a few more projects I’ve made today and tomorrow, also.

First up today is another shaker card. This time I’ve used tiny glass pearls in the shaker area, and kept it small. Summer Dress Molli has been coloured in with no-lines technique and copics as usual and I’ve used loads of the new dies from this release. You’ll find a list of everything at the bottom of the post, and of course direct links to the products!

As most my cards yesterday were blue, I decided to go with teal, green and yellow as the combination for this. I’m not sure I’ve ever used that combination previously, but I really do like it! The paper I’ve used is by Poppydesign, and I’ve used a sail boat charm which I added on thin rope.

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

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.

Copics used: (hair) E70, E71, E74, E77, E79, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, (green) YG61, YG63, G67, G99, (yellow) Y11, Y13, Y19, Y38, (grey/white) C1, C3, C5, C7

Hello Butterfly

I’ve had so much fun making backgrounds with the new background stamps from La-La Land Crafts. For this card I’ve used the one called Just for You. I think it is my favourite! I love how the pattern looks and that I can have it any colour or colour combination I want. I definitely need more background stamps!

Additionally I’ve used a Magnolia stamp which I’ve coloured in with Copic Markers, chipboard from Make It Crafty and sentiment from MFT Stamps and some candi I coloured in a matching colour.

Here is a photo from the side. The sentiment has been put on foam pads and the chipboard is in two layers.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, R20, (hair) BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, (purple) V12, V15, V17, V09, (yellow) Y11, Y13, Y19, Y38, (ground) W1, W3, W5
