Colouring Video: Beary Special Birthday

A quick video colouring up this whole image to show how to colour up a fancy bow. The stamp is by My Favorite Things from the stamp set Beary Special Birthday. The stamp itself is no longer available at MFT Stamps as it has been retired, but various local shops may have it still so check yours.

Here is an example of a card I’ve made using this stamp:

Wedding Season

Don’t you juse love weddings?! So far this year I’ve been had to make a handful of wedding cards and I love doing each one. This particular card as made with the request of matching a baby card as they were celebrating both events at the same. On the right side here you can see the baby card I made and if you click on it you will be taken to the post I wrote about that card.

This one is made with my favourite wedding image, from Tiddly Inks and as usual I’ve removed the names that were added at the bottom. It’s been coloured with Copic Markers and I’ve used various embellishments from Wild Orchid Crafts, Live and Love Crafts, Martha Stewart, as well as some acrylic paint and cheese cloth.

Here is another photo from another angle:

Picnic time

Bah, holiday over already. I had my flight home yesterday with my suitcase and hand luggage filled with so much crafting stuff I barely had room to bring other things I bought home, never mind the stuff I was supposed to take back, like the camera. Oh well, there is always next time haha. I’ve not even had time to unpack yet as I went straight to work from the airport and today is another long day where I won’t be home until late evening. Hopefully I can get started on some card making with my new stuff tomorrow!

Below is a card I’ve made with papers from various First Edition Paper pads. The circular die is made with spellbinders. I don’t remember what my reasonably new corner die is called so I will update the post with the name of it later. The corner dies are from Die-Namics of course, from My Favourite Things. The pre-coloured image is by Lili of the Valley and all the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. As usual the leaves are made with a Martha Stewart puncher. The ribbons were in my stash, I believe the transparent yellow one once came with a bunch of flowers, heh. The brad I used on the bow is one I’ve had in my stash for a while, but I reckon it is a Papermania one.

Summer, sea and shells.

Today’s card was made with inspiration of summer, sea and shells.  I spotted a jar of shells in a shop while just have a looking randomly as I was waiting for somebody. A few days later I was able to put them to good use and have made more cards using shells since, which I hope to post soon. As I haven’t got a sea-side inspired stamp, I went with a country themed one instead for this card.

Baby card + box

One exam done and two to go; all this week. I am so looking forward to the weekend right now! Although I’ve barely done anything but study the past few weeks, another card post was well due! This card and box were the last I made before I packed it all away for the exam preparations. The card was a request from a co-worker and I suggested to make a box to go with. This is the first time I’ve attempted making a box! Let’s have a look then!
