Happy birthday bear in present

I’ve used Beary Special Birthday from MFT Stamps for this card. If you’d like to see how I colour up this kind of stamp, please see this video.

The background is made with distress oxide ink with a stamp by Simon Says Stamp inked with Altenew on top. The numbers and embossed text is by MFT Stamps and the stars are chipboards I’ve coloured up in a matching colour.

Copics used for the bow: B21, B24, B26, B39

RAM dragon

There hasn’t been a lot of colouring or crafting for me the past couple of weeks, but hopefully I will get back into it more again now with Easter around the corner and having parts of the kitchen redone the past week!

Today I have another Rachelle Anne Miller project to show you. It’s quite a simple card, but it was fun colouring up the cute stamp at least. The stamp is called dragon.

I’ve used MFT Stamps cardstock and a stitched rectangle die, as well as a sentiment from Avery Elle.

Copics used: E00, E02, E13, E15, E53, E25, E59, E49, BG11, BG13, BG15, BG18, BG78, YG21, YG23, YG17, YG67, Y13, YR02, YR18, W5, W7, W10

Birthday celebration

Time for a fun birthday card using a stamp by Stamping Bella. I opted for a layered card this time using Maja Design papers, my favourite lace, a bit of matching ribbon and some chipboard numbers. The edges have been painted white with acrylic paint.

Party turtle

I bought this Neat & Tangled stamp set quite a while ago, but I never really got around to using it. For one of the colouring challenges earlier this year, I finally got around to colouring up one of the stamps; this awesome party snail. I opted for no-lines for a change and love how it turned out. As he’s quite small, I made a bigger cluster of scrap papers in the corner to go with. It’s mostly scraps from Maja Design and then some random card stock. The sentiment stamp means “congratulations” and is by Mathia Design.

Birthday poppy

I don’t often play with panel dies, but when I saw this Trellis one from Altenew I knew I had to have it. It’s been die cut as white card stock and then I used my Distress Ink (one of the few I have that’s not Oxide) in the colour Peeled Paint and deliberately avoided getting it even. As the background behind it, I used one of the new watercolour background panels from Lili of the Valley. Then I cut the Trellis die cut apart so that I only kept about 2/3 of it. The Paint-a-Flower Poppy has been coloured with my Copic markers and then cut out by hand. After I glued it onto the background and trellis, I used one of my other Copic marker colours to draw in some dots in a colour to match the distress. The Happy Birthday sentiment is a part of the Paint-a-Flower Poppy set, whereas “dearest friend” is off the Statement Flowers set and I used two different colours from the Zesty Limes ink cubes set. A few transparent drops and voila, card done!
