YNS: Kyle the Koala

Today I’m here to show you the third and final project I’ve made a guest designer for Your Next Stamp. This time I’ve used Kyle the Koala. In addition I’ve used the Paint Swooshes and Splatters stamp set to make the background behind the koala. It was made using two different shades of Distress Oxide Ink. I was just playing around making the layout, and I really like how it turned out! In fact I’m already planning planning to do something similar as a baby card as I think that could work well. The dots in the corner as also by YNS.

Here you can see a close up of the background I made.

YNS: Happy Brrr-thday

It is time for another post as a guest designer for Your Next Stamp. As I wrote in my first post, I’m going to make all three projects in ways that are, at least in my opinion, rather typical for me. So this one is with a clean and simple style that includes smaller stamps, distress oxide ink and bright colours. I have in fact made two matching cards. The first one has a darker grey background.

The second card I made with this stamp set has a lighter coloured grey background and the distressed background goes vertically across the middle.

Copics used: N0, N1, N3, N5, N7, RV00, RV09, RV52, RV55, RV69, Y11, Y13, Y38, YR09, E41, E42, E43, E44

Flowers for you

It’s the middle of the month again already and that means it’s time for a new challenge over at Copic Marker Norge. This time the has been challenged to make something with the theme nature. I chose to colour up a floral stamp by My Favorite Things.

The border die is also by My Favorite Things, the butterfly by La-La Land Crafts and the dots are gumdrops from Your Next Stamp.

YNS Happy Heart

A little while ago I was asked if I wanted to be a guest designer for Your Next Stamp. I wasn’t entirely sure if I had time and energy, but I decided there was no way I could pass up the opportunity, and they did give me plenty of time! So here I am, guest designing! You can find this and a couple more of my cards on their blog this month.

The first card I’ve made for them I’ve made as a layered card. I’ve used this adorable bunny along with a great sentiment set and gumdrops. I love the gumdrops! They are perfect for my cards and I wish I had loads more of them right now!

Monsters!

Another boy’s birthday which I needed to make a card for. It almost looks like I’m making a habit out of making boy cards now! This time I decided to use monsters from Your Next Stamp. Aren’t they awesome? I cut them out by hand.

The background is made using Distress Oxide Ink. I then splashed water on it in rather big chunks which created a great contrasting effect. I added the coloured strip to the middle of the card and added the monsters on top so it looks like they’re stood up over the top of the card.

After I took the photos I used an alphabet die set and cut out the boy’s name in dark purple and put it underneath the happy birthday sentiment. The happy birthday sentiment is by My Favorite Things which I embossed in white. And the white dots? They’re candi by Craftwork Cards.

And from the side, where you can also see some of the doodling I did inside.
