Crafty Meraki dotted blooms

Today marks the day for my final post for the Crafty Meraki DT. I have finally been able to make a card with one of the stamps I selected before I started on the team and I went all pink for a change! I admit I am looking forward to having some more time to create stuff that is not DT work (aka with a deadline), it’s not been much of that lately with everything else going on. A lot has happened the past couple of months, but hopefully things will settle a bit soon! I might even have a chance at tidying up my desk again!

It’s been a while since I used Altenew, so I had fun colouring up one of their stamps again. This one is called Dotted Blooms and I used the sentiment from that set as well. It has quite a few good sentiments! The enamel dots are Altenew as well, whereas the ink for the sentiment is by Pinkfresh and is called Regal Kiss.

Thanks for having me, Crafty Meraki, and I look forward to seeing what fun products you might release next!

Copics used: RV00, RV10, RV63, RV66, RV69, RV91

Alex Syberia Lovely Bouquet

I have made another card with the new Alex Syberia Design release. This time I’ve coloured up the Lovely Bouquet. I resized and rotated the stamp to get it how I wanted it before I printed it on A2 card stock. Once coloured I cut off a little on the size and at the bottom. The sentiment is by Hero Arts / Gina K and I used Altenew ink to stamp it. Then I sprinkled on some frantage with blue glitter and heat embossed that before using foam tape to put the coloured panel onto dark blue card stock.

Here is another photo so you can see the frantage with the blue glitter at a close-up.

Copics used: B21, B24, B26, B39, G21, G43, G46, BG99, BG72, BG75, BG78, RV34, R39

Altenew Statement Flowers

Sometimes you simply cannot get a hold of a stamp you want. That is how it was for me with this stamp, Statement Flowers by ALTENEW. I finally got a hold of it this morning and coloured it up while the baby was having a nap. I coloured in the card base to match my colouring (RV93) and used a GinaK/HeroArts sentiment. I stamped the sentiment using Fresh Leaf from the Zesty Limes mini cubes set. The enamel dots are from Altenew as well, from the Green Fields set.

Copics used: (pink) RV91, RV93, RV95, (brown) E70, E71, E74, E77, (lighter green) G40, G21, G24, (darker green) BG90, BG93, BG96

Background stamping

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.
