Mo’s Lil Ballerina

I have a fun blue card to share today. I’ve used Lil Ballerina by Mo Manning.

To mix things up a little I’ve made my own background using Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean distress oxides together with an Altenew stencil (aff.link). The enamel dots (aff.link) are also by Altenew and the sentiment is by InkOn3 (and so is the embossing ink!)

EM Sending Love

Making sunflower cards as a symbol against the ongoing war made some very talented artists offer free stamps to colour up. This is one of those stamps and it’s by Emily Midgett. I coloured it up in no-lines and simply stamped a black sentiment over the top. The sentiment is by LDRS Creative. I do like keeping things simple. 🙂

LotV Peek-a-boo in red

I am so happy Lili of the Valley is going for physical stamps again. Some of my very first stamps were rubber stamps by them and although digital stamps are handy for getting whichever size you want etc. there’s something special about having the actual stamp!

The new set with the peek-a-boo set and penguins is my favourite, but I do like a few of the others as well! Hopefully they’ll be up in their Etsy shop and available for everyone next week! I’ve also used the sentiment stamp for this card.

LH Dragon with Flowers

Don’t you just love it when, after colouring up an image, you realise you have the perfect sentiment?

That is what happened to me while making this card! First I coloured up this adorable dragon by Lee Holland, and after I had decided on the layout and die cut the coloured panel I remembered a stamp set I had bought recently and hoped it had a fitting sentiment. It definitely did!

The sentiment is from the huge sunflower stamp by Simon Says Stamp.
