Sometimes it’s fun to make a background out of a stamp. For this one I’ve used a stamp from Altenew and stamped it up at random 4 times. It’s a pretty big stamp so it covers a lot of area. I then coloured it all in with my Copics, as usual, using the RV90 series. I also coloured in the card base to get a matching colour frame and then I used RV99 to make a sentiment strip. I used Gina K’s white ink for the text stamp and said text stamp is by Mathia Design (Hobbykunst). At the end I added 3 light grey enamel dots below the sentiment.
Time for another Whimsy Stamps project. This adorable stamp is called Well Rounded Elephant and was part of the February release. I decided it would look cute on a layered card with out too many embellishments, so I went with floral patterned paper and kept it all flowery and happy.
I’ve used my N copics to colour up the elephant
Baby cards are fun to make and I think I’ve made more the past year than all the previous years I’ve been card making added up. I wonder why, haha! I do like making them in the non-traditional blue and pinks as well, and this one in turquoise and purple is amongst my favourites already. The adorable stamp is by Stamping Bella, the background paper is by Lawn Fawn and the chipboard was from Make It Crafty.
Well, the past week flew by quickly! With everything happening at the moment I know quite a few have more time at home regardless of whether they like it or not. I am currently not amongst those, but who knows when that might change. Anyway, because of this I will try to make a couple of colouring videos over the next week to help the colourists out there make time pass a bit quicker and who knows, maybe there are others who might like to try colouring, too.
But for now I will settle with showing you my most recent card. I used a Stamping Bella stamp, and the numbers are made with a MFT Stamps die. The papers are primarily Reprint and Maja Design.
This card has multiple folds, and to see that it needs to be untied.
It has a few folds inside for various content. I’ve made a gift card pocket and written the text from a birthday song on two of the pages inside
And this is how it looks if you look down at it from above.
The blue copics are from the B20s series. The greens are also 20s and the greys are Ns.
The papers are by Lili of the Valley, butterfly dies by Rayher and my usual lace/ribbon combo along with some Altenew enamel dots and my own sentiments.
Copics used: N0, N1, N3, G21, G24, G94, G99, BG23, BG57, BG78, V12, V22, V25, V28
