RAM Balloon Ride

My Rachelle Anne Miller DT-project this month is a little delayed as I had to get a new printer before I could colour up my chosen image. I picked Animal Balloons. What I decided to do for this one was to first mirror the digital stamp and then copy some of Rachelle’s balloons to add three more than what was in the original image. More balloons, more fun!

A bit of foam tape here and there, some clouds, a sentiment strip and a few enamel dots and my simple card was done.

Snowy birthday card

With all the colouring videos lately, today I have a card without any colouring! I have used the snowflake stamp set from MFT Stamps and stamped it loads of times using various colours of Distress Oxide inks and Altenew inks. At the end I embossed white snowflakes on top. It was quite a fun project and I rarely make anything without any colouring, at least no clean and simple cards with just ink and embossing powder!

A few transparent sequins and a simple sentiment finished off the card.

Rainbow books

I really wanted to make something today. It’s been a super busy week and I’ve hardly had time to sit down and spend time crafting or colouring, so now that it’s finally weekend I wanted to make sure to get some time in! And nothing. There was nothing I felt like making, apart from a vague feeling of wanting something with a rainbow on. After a while I remembered this pencil colouring I did a while back. The stamp is by Mama Elephant. I had some Lawn Fawn scrap paper laying about in lovely rainbow colours, so a piece of that, some white cardstock and the perfect Mama Elephant sentiment meant I got a card done after all!

Crafty Meraki yellow orchid

It is Tuesday and that means it’s my turn to be up on the Crafty Meraki blog. I have decided to use one of the collaboration stamps from the latest release; the orchid stamp in collaboration with Colorado Craft Company. This is one of my favourite floral stamps at the moment.

As winter is approaching quickly in my corner of the world, I decided one some bright, cheerful, summery colours. I don’t tend to use a lot of yellow, and this card is filled with it! A bit of bright pink to go with seemed perfect. I have used sentiments from Pinkfresh Studio to go with.

I decided to try something a little bit different this time and instead of stamping up the sentiment normally, I stamped the word hello in InkOn3’s fadeout ink and then I coloured it in using the same Copic markers I’d picked for the centre of the flower. It is something I haven’t tried much before, but I think it gave the text a cool gradient/ombre effect.

And here is a final photo of the card.

Polkadoodles witch

It’s time for another Polkadoodles card! I used Winnie Wednesday Witch and decided to make a birthday card from it. We don’t tend to make a big deal of Halloween here, even if it’s a little bigger every year, so Halloween cards is something I don’t make many of. To have a fitting sentiment for this card, I decided to just write one up and print it. I really wanted a wicked one!

What I do enjoy though, however, is to carve pumpkins and due to various restrictions and unfortunate circumstances due to the current pandemic I ended up carving three of them this year. You can see the photos of them on my Instagram account!
