I’ve made a reasonably simple card again. This time I’ve used a rainbow patterned background paper by Lawn Fawn together with a purple background paper by MFT Stamps. The wee bunny is also from MFT Stamps while the text stamp is by the Norwegian brand Mathia Design. Some enamel dots by Altenew and some foam tape for dimension and there we go!
Whimsy Stamps have several new digital stamps out each month. One of the ones that were released this month is this cute little one with her cake. Her name is Princess and she’s a part of the CC Designs collection.
Pencil colouring is fun! My next pencil colouring will actually be my 10th and yesterday it was a month since I first tried coloured pencils. Not many of them have made it onto cards though, only 3 of them, of which one of them have made it onto the blog so far. I find it quite different to make cards with craft as the base colour instead of white, but I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it soon!
This time I’ve made a Christmas card using a penguin with candy cane by Whimsy Stamps, it’s in the Crissy Armstrong collection. Isn’t he adorable? As I wrote in the first paragraph, I haven’t made many cards using my pencil colourings, so for this one I took a page out of Elin‘s book. She’s the only one I know who makes clusters of paper scraps like this and I like it, so I thought I’d try it myself. I think it works well for my card!
I use prisma color premier pencils.
On Tuesday, a friend and I decided that we were going to attempt the new MFT Stamps sketch challenge, no matter what it was, when the new one was out. That was yesterday. My card came along pretty nicely. I used some stamps I coloured up a while back and kept the same colour scheme for the rest of the card, using blue, turquoise and lime green Distress Oxide inks. I cut out the coloured panels using dies from MFT Stamps and the stamps are also from them as well, the Happy Hippos and Adorable Elephants sets. I finished the card off with a Norwegian sentiment, which means happy birthday, by Mathia Design (Hobbykunst) and a few enamel dots from Altenew.
This card has been entered into the following challenge:

For today’s card I’ve tried something a bit different… I’ve drawn my own tree! I was inspired by the tree from Simon Says Stamp that I posted a card with a few days ago. It seemed a bit odd having the kids on a swing swinging from nothing, so I got my multiliner out and sorted them out a tree to swing from. I’m quite happy with how it turned out.
I made my own sentiment as well, which I printed along with the kids stamp. The kids on the swing stamp is from Lili of the Valley by the way. They have a few different versions of couples of a swing, and they’re all precious! I decided to just keep the card simple.
