Time for another birthday card today! I’ve used a stamp from Mama Elephant and a die from Papirdesign to create this card. For once I’ve even made a mini slimline card as that size fit the stamp perfectly. These are a bit unusual colours for me, but it’s fun to try other combinations and this is such a fun one! A few matching enamel dots from Altenew and a matching cardstock background finished off the look.
Here is the blog post for the card I made using the colouring from the video I posted earlier this week. You can find the video here.
I’ve used a stripe from one of the papers in one of MFT Stamps paper pads, the mouse and cupcake stamp are also MFT. Then I’ve die cut a number 3 (also MFT) and coloured it up in a matching green colour before die cutting a happy, embossing a birthday and sing three different types of washi tape to make a fun background for the sentiment area. I’ve also drawn a whimsical border in around the coloured panel. All in all, a fun card to make! I enjoyed making a different kind of card when using kraft and coloured pencils for a change.
There is a new release available at Lili of the Valley today and it consists of vintage boy images. I’ve coloured up this super cute one with the boy polishing a car. It is called Elbow Grease. I’ve barely coloured this month so it was fun to get the markers out again and I’m quite happy with how the car, in particular, turned out. This time I’ve opted for a Norwegian sentiment and it basically says “happy birthday”.
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.
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.
