LotV boy and his dinosaur

I made a really fun and colourful card for the latest Lili of the Valley stamp release. The new boy stamps are adorable, and I love this little one riding on a dinosaur with loads of presents and a little cupcake at the tip of the dinosaur’s tail!

The card is kept simple. I used distress inks to create a matching panel to have on the side of the coloured image and put the sentiment stamp on bright orange card stock. Because birthday cards are supposed to be fun, right?

Whimsy party pig

Apparently it’s May. Not entirely sure how that happened, but hey it’s mean there’s a new release up at Whimsy Stamps! I used Crissy’s party pig for my card and can you see what I’ve done different?

Yup. Pencils. Pencils on kraft. Until about a week ago I hadn’t coloured up with pencils before, not even had a try I was unhappy with. I simply hadn’t tried. I’d been told it was difficult, so I’ve just put it up and stuck with my Copics even if I got my pencils as a gift well over three years ago! I finally tried them and they are so much fun! I love the effect I get from using them on kraft paper as well. My Prismacolor pencils are definitely going to be used regularly!

Dusty pink poppy

A few weeks back I shared a card where I had used an ALTENEW stamp several times and made a whole panel with it. Well, this time I’ve coloured the flower up in no-lines using InkOn3’s FadeOut Ink and I’ve also coloured up the background paper in a similar colour to match the coloured image. I used pretty much the same Copics and colour palette on the previous card, which you can click here to view. It shows quite well how much difference it made when I used a black outline on the stamp compared to this no-lined version.

The text stamp is by Mathia Design (Hobbykunst) and is stamped up using Gina K’s white ink. Gave it a cool effect, I thought. I’ve used stitched rectangle dies by MFT Stamps for both the main stamped panel and the sentiment strip. To top it all off I used three enamel dots by Altenew.

Mmmm Strawberries!

Our theme this month, at Copic Marker Norge, is something edible. Initially I was going to use a stamp with donuts, but I got a Power Poppy gift certificate for my birthday a few days ago and I simply had to colour up this stamp! Don’t the strawberries look yummy?! I cannot wait for summer and being able to pick some in mum’s garden! Strawberries are delicious!
