Bold statement flowers

I absolutely love the Statement Flowers, is by ALTENEW. It’s not that often I take time to colour up in no-lines, but so far I’ve only done just that with this stamp. I use the fade-out ink by InkOn3 because it’s awesome. This time I opted for a lot bolder colours by using red. I’ve hand cut the flower after colouring it up.

The card itself is made by die cutting the Trellis die in white and gluing it back onto white cardstock. The hello die is also by Altenew and so are the green enamel dots which are part of the Green Fields set. Lastly I embossed, in gold, a sentiment from Mathia Design.

Let’s have a proper close-up as well for a change.

RAM Christmas Tree

I have another card to share where I’ve coloured up one of the adorable stamps by Rachelle Anne Miller. As it’s August already, it might be time to start slowly with the Christmas cards. It would save you having to do loads in November and December! That’s my goal at least, to have quite a few done before then, and I think I’m on track for it. This stamp is called Christmas Tree.

As for the rest of the card, I coloured up a matching background, and then die cut the coloured panel. I used various paper scraps and dies to make a cluster and then used a Norwegian text stamp for the Christmas sentiment.

Thankful for you

There’s no secret that turquoise is my favourite colour. For my birthday this year I got a gift certificate for stamps at Power Poppy and I bought loads! These sunflowers in a vase is one of them. Isn’t it pretty? I layered it on the side of the panel and printed on a part of it. I think it looks pretty good on the side like this. I used a sentiment stamp from a collaboration set made by Hero Arts and Gina K Design and inked it up with ink from Altenew. The enamel dots are also from Altenew, whereas the cardstock is by MFT Stamps.

A shabby chic card

It doesn’t happen very often, but sometimes I do make cards without a coloured up image. Here I’ve used Maja Design paper together with one of their printed images. I’ve used white acrylic paint around all the edges, by favourite lace and some ribbon together with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The numbers are from a MFT Stamps die and the sentiment is by Mathia Design.

Lotv James in the snow

My favourite bear is definitely James of Lili of the Valley. He is super cute and I love to colour him up. This time I’ve opted to give him a green hat and scarf and I made a simple card from it. I used various dies to cut out smaller elements to make a little cluster on the opposite site and used a Norwegian sentiment by Kort og Godt as well as snowflakes from dies and chipboard.

Here is another photo of the card.
