You deserve this

The great thing about stamps is that you can use them in lots of different ways. The previous time I used this stamp, which is a flower stamp by InkOn3, on a card I stamped it once, in no-lines and then I cut it out for the card I made (you can see that card here). This time I’ve stamped it twice, at different angles, with black ink. I’ve coloured it up using Copic Marker and placed it on green cardstock. I used text stamps from Mathia Design (Hobbykunst) where I stamped the bigger text directly onto the coloured panel and the other text was stamped on black card stock and embossed in white. Three rhinestones and the card was done.

Blue no-lines flowers

A while ago, I coloured up this flower stamp from Inkon3 using their Fadeout ink for the no-lines effect, but I never really got around to making it into a card.

Well, now it’s done! I bought this gorgeous panel die by Lawn Fawn a week or two ago and it’s perfect! To get a bit of contrast I used blue cardstock behind it, the same colour I’ve used on the frame and small sentiment strip. The birthday die, by Simon Says Stamp, is cut out in a slightly darker cardstock. The flower is put reasonably centred on the card, but to break up the background panel somewhat I added a rectangular white panel with the blue cardstock behind it, behind a bit over half of the coloured image.

Dusty pink poppy

A few weeks back I shared a card where I had used an ALTENEW stamp several times and made a whole panel with it. Well, this time I’ve coloured the flower up in no-lines using InkOn3’s FadeOut Ink and I’ve also coloured up the background paper in a similar colour to match the coloured image. I used pretty much the same Copics and colour palette on the previous card, which you can click here to view. It shows quite well how much difference it made when I used a black outline on the stamp compared to this no-lined version.

The text stamp is by Mathia Design (Hobbykunst) and is stamped up using Gina K’s white ink. Gave it a cool effect, I thought. I’ve used stitched rectangle dies by MFT Stamps for both the main stamped panel and the sentiment strip. To top it all off I used three enamel dots by Altenew.

Mummy with baby

Today is the first of December and I’m going to try to repeat what I did a couple of years ago by having one blog post each day! So far I have nothing scheduled and just a few cards made, but with the colouring challenge that just finished (and the previous one as well for that matter haha) I have quite a few images ready to go on cards! So I’ll try. We’ll see how it goes…

Today I’m showing a card I made with possibly my favourite Stamping Bella stamp. I’ve added little hearts to the dress, which was easier than I thought.
