Spring break

Another floral card, completely different to the one I put up a few days ago. For this one I’ve coloured up a Power Poppy stamp. I’m quite pleased with how the colouring turned out on this one. Sometimes the card doesn’t need a lot of stuff added, at least I think so. So I just added a sentiment stamp by Mathia Design and a few enamel dots by Altenew.

Copics used: (green) YG03, G24, G94, G99, (yellow/orange) YR20, YR21, YR23, E97, E08, E19, (pink) RV63, RV66, RV69, (purple) V22, V25, V28, BV29, (sky) B60, B63, (ground) N3, N5, N7

Snowdrops

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.

Folded card in yellow

On Sunday last week I had a random impulse for a card. I spotted a recently added challenge at the Hobbykunst challenge blog on Facebook which said to make a specific size and type of folded card. I had just finished one of my other deadline project and figured “hey, why not”. I then asked for trouble, I mean a colour suggestion, and was given the colour yellow. It took me a whole hour to actually find yellow patterned paper I could use and that says a little of how much paper I have and the amount of yellow that was in it. Now there’s no yellow left.

I used a Mo’s Digital Stamp image which I’d coloured up previously. It was a fun project so there many be another card of two similar to this soon, if I find the time!

Here is a peek of the inside of the card. I’ve used some text stamps from Mathia design.

And a final photo of the project

New Norwegian stamp brand

Last week a new Norwegian stamp brand appeared on the market here in Norway: Mathia design. Of course I had to use the stamps as soon as I got them! Here I’ve embossed the background stamp and used one of the text stamps. The coloured image is a Stamping Bella stamp and will be used in a class I’ll be teaching at Hobbykunst in Oslo in the middle of March.

Whimsy Frog Prince

Leap year day today. 29th February, so of course I had to post something as it’ll be a while until I have that opportunity again! I’ve used the Frog Prince from the Wee Stamps collection over at Whimsy Stamps for this card. I’ve stuck with my CAS card size and made it a semi-layered card.

Copics used: YG01, G21, G24, G28, BG99, B21, B23, B26, B39, Y32, Y35, Y38, N5, N7, N9
