Statement Flowers slimline

I have made my very first slimline card! You might be getting tired of them by now, but I have coloured up the Statement Flowers by ALTENEW yet again. I can’t help it, I love that stamp! This time I cut out the two flowers after I’d coloured them up. Then I used Pinkfresh slimline die to make a card base onto which I stamped a few of the leaves from the Leaf Clusters stamp set using one of the greens from the Zesty Limes ink cubes set. I used the same green to stamp the “my friend” which is also from the Leaf Clusters stamp set. The beautiful happy birthday die is also from Pinkfresh and I added some enamel dots around the text.

As it is the first time making a slimline card it’s also my first time trying to take a photo of one. It seemed a bit empty without props, so I figured I’d give that a go for a change. I think it worked well enough for a first try!

Copics used: RV000, RV91, RV93, RV95, E70, E71, E74, E77, G94

Bold statement flowers

I absolutely love the Statement Flowers, is by ALTENEW. It’s not that often I take time to colour up in no-lines, but so far I’ve only done just that with this stamp. I use the fade-out ink by InkOn3 because it’s awesome. This time I opted for a lot bolder colours by using red. I’ve hand cut the flower after colouring it up.

The card itself is made by die cutting the Trellis die in white and gluing it back onto white cardstock. The hello die is also by Altenew and so are the green enamel dots which are part of the Green Fields set. Lastly I embossed, in gold, a sentiment from Mathia Design.

Let’s have a proper close-up as well for a change.

You deserve this

The great thing about stamps is that you can use them in lots of different ways. The previous time I used this stamp, which is a flower stamp by InkOn3, on a card I stamped it once, in no-lines and then I cut it out for the card I made (you can see that card here). This time I’ve stamped it twice, at different angles, with black ink. I’ve coloured it up using Copic Marker and placed it on green cardstock. I used text stamps from Mathia Design (Hobbykunst) where I stamped the bigger text directly onto the coloured panel and the other text was stamped on black card stock and embossed in white. Three rhinestones and the card was done.

Floral card (og kurs)

18th January I’m having my first colouring and card making course. The object of the course is to make a floral card, where you colour in the stamped image yourself, and there are three possible options. Today’s blog post is for the purple option. I’ve used Rayher dies and a stamp from My Favorite Things.

Lørdag 18. januar skal jeg holde kort- og fargeleggingskurs hos Hobbykunst i Oslo. Her skal vi sammen fargelegge dette blomstermotivet fra My Favorite Things med Copic Marker og man kan velge mellom oransje (se det oransje kortet her), lilla og rosa. Det er tre noe ulike layouter på dette enkle kortet, og man velger selv hvilken layout man ønsker. Påmelding og mer informasjon om hva man trenger er på Hobbykunst sine nettsider her.

Det ligger nå også ute foreløpig informasjon om de neste to kursene jeg skal ha, i februar og mars.

Flowers for you

A non-Christmas card today. Opted for various pink hues and letting the coloured image (stamp by Power Poppy) take all the focus on this layered card. I used a little bit of lace and ribbon, made my own sentiment and stuck with one patterned paper and a light grey card base.

I coloured this up for the colouring challenge in June, and I don’t remember where I wrote down the colours… The vase should be various N, though…
