OCC – Day 4

I’m a bit slow to post this up on the blog here, it’s been on my Instagram since it was made, though. This is from Day 4 of the Online Card Classes – a smaller card making course focusing on card stock which I took at the end of August. This card here is made after watching Debby’s video.

I’ve used a Snip Art stencil with acrylic paint for the background, the chipboard is also from there, I believe. Dies by Honey Bee, La-La Land Crafts and Precious Marieke as well as a sentiment stamp by Mathia Design and some enamel dots by Altenew.

It was quite a fun card to make, even if it was a bit challenging to try to layer up the dies for dimension and placing them in a way I thought would look nice. In the end I’m really pleased with the result, so don’t be surprised if you see more similar cards in the future!

LH Reindeer Antler Dragon

I was asked to colour up a couple of images and make projects for Lee Holland and how could I possibly resist something as cute as this? I didn’t even try! My first project features the Reindeer Antler Christmas Dragon and I’ve opted for my favourite blues combined with green and brown. The images are quite fiddly too colour as they are so detailed, but they are definitely fun!

The sentiment is made with letters from an Altenew die set and parts of a larger word die by Papirdesign.

Through August (2021) Lee Holland is having a promotion of 30% off if you buy 3 or more stamps. Or if you fancy the entire Christmas Dragon bundle use the code CHRISTMAS60 to get 60% off!

RAM Scene creator

It is new release day at Rachelle Anne Miller’s online shop tomorrow and this time around she is introducing scene creators (aff.link). Basically it’s a pack of images which you can mix and match as you like to create your own scene. That seems to be the obvious choice with these stamps, so I opted for using just one, as there’s nothing wrong in doing that either! The bunny was my stamp of choice this time and I coloured it up in the no-line version. Be sure to pop by her shop tomorrow (12th) to see the new stamps.

For my card I’ve started off by using Distress Oxide on an Altenew stencil. Then I’ve clear embossed a Simon Says Stamp text onto that before adding various die cut elements and a doily. The stamp itself has been cut out by hand and then placed on top using foam tape. The Norwegian sentiment means “for a delightful friend” and is by Mathia Design.

Mo’s Peter Pan

It is Wednesday and I’m sharing another card using Mo’s Digital Pencil. I have made something a little bit different this time: a full panel shaker card for a boy! Various distress inks for the background before adding loads of sequins for Peter Pan to enjoy. Hopefully Tinker Bell won’t steal them all before the card reaches its recipient!

The background is made using 4 different distress oxide inks, a splatter stamp and a background stamp both by MFT Stamps. Various sequins were used to fill the card before a cut out Peter Pan was glued to the top with die cut letters and enamel dots both by Altenew filled the space next to him.

Saying hi with flowers

I’ve coloured up one of Emily Midgett’s colouring panels. A dash of yellow for the flowers and a bright yellow background. The only decorations are a few transparent sequins and a die cut sentiment. The sentiment is actually the hello die by Altenew (aff.link) which I cut into a Norwegian equivalent. I admit it worked a lot better than I had thought and it doesn’t look like it’s been cut, I think. Love it when you can use a die like that!
