26. Girl with big balloon

There’s been a lot of Christmas lately. Funny that, right? Well, today someone special has her birthday, so I feel I had to have a pink birthday card on my blog! It’s very plain, but still fun I thought. The stamp is by Mo’s Digital Pencil and I think it’s great! I love the huge balloon and the little girl! I jazzed up the card with some Bazzill card stock in three different colours, whereas the sentiment stamp as added to one of them. The sentiment is by Papirdesign.

Copics used: (pink) RV00, RV02, RV04, RV09, R89, (bear) E41, E43, E44, (hair) E21, E25, E29, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (grey) W2

Fab Annie with a balloon

Friday and showcase time at Tiddly Inks! I decided to use Annie for this one. She was a freebie earlier in the year and no longer available. Tiddly Inks has a lot of other adorable images as well, though. Have a look! I drew in the balloon myself.

Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the lace and ribbon from a local shop, dies are Noor Design and the sentiment stamp is Lili of the Valley. I coloured her in with copics, distressed the edges and added frantage on top.


This card has been entered into the following challenge:

Dragon with cupcake

Today we have yet another card I made a couple of months ago when I was on my last card making spree. I have still not had time to make any more, so I’m glad I got so many done in August. It looks like I might not have time to make anything until mid December, but I hope I am wrong. Anyway, here is the card.

Teddy card

The folding idea for this card came from various websites. Most of them hard the card stood the other way around. However, that wouldn’t fit with the paper I had bought specifically for this birthday.

I found it challenging to colour the teddy bear stamp. It is called Louis with flowers and isĀ from Wild Rose Studio. After glancing at a few tutorials on using copic markers, I came up with a result I am fairly pleased with. There were some other teddies I think came out better, but that may be more down to colour choices than the actual colouring. I am pleased with the rest of the colouring, though. The balloons were from a different stamp set and didn’t come with the teddy bear.

The first fold holds my greeting and specifically chosen paper. As you can see it is pretty large when unfolded. Click to view the larger size.

Inside the Louis teddy card

This is another card which can be folded open twice, even though the last unfold (in this card, at least) doesn’t hide much. I merely made the inside match the outside of the fold, but used different words on the text.
