Pencil flowers on kraft

Here is the very first colouring I did using pencils. It made its way onto a card thanks to Elin who suggested this layout, inspired by a card made by Colorfulcluttereddesk on IG two years earlier, and mostly remote-controlled the making of this card. That is a very fun way to make a card, by the way, and I suggest you give it a try!

It was during one of the 30 day colouring challenges that I decided it was finally time to dig out my Prismacolor pencils and give them a try. I didn’t even have a pencil sharpener… but thankfully my other half hurried to the shop once I was done with the big flower as it was no way I was going to finish the rest of the card without sharpening a single pencil!

The gorgeous flower is a stamp by Power Poppy. The polaroid die is by MFT Stamps, the big letters are chipboard by Make it Crafty and the sentiment strip is made using Mathia Design stamps. The text means “hi, we’ll miss you”.

If anybody has a particular interest in knowing which pencils I’ve used, then I have written that down somewhere, so just pop me a message.

Whimsy Princess with her cake

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.

I used a die cut and some chip board along with a Norwegian text stamp. You can get the same effect on yours if you use one of the border dies in this set as well as this alphabet die set.

LotV flying past

There is a new Lili of the Valley release today and it is full of cute little boy stamps! I absolutely love them and the one I will show you first is definitely one of my favourites! As soon as I saw the image I knew how I wanted to the card. Isn’t it great when that happens?

Best friends

Yet another clean and simple card today. I’ve coloured up a lot of Stamping Bella lately because of the next two colouring classes I’m planning to have at Hobbykunst in Oslo in March, so I used an entirely different stamp for this card. It’s another one of the images I coloured up in the previous 30 day colouring challenge and my pile of coloured images is now ready for another 30-day refill! The fade-out ink from Inkon3 is great, by the way! Opted for softer colours on the dress.

I’ve used Maja Design paper, an MFT Stamps rectangle die, Make it Crafty chipboard and Altenew enamel dots.

LotV Stargazing

Today I’m here to show my first make of the year for the Lili of the Valley DT. It’s a Christmas card I made last minute and I used the image I coloured up for a video you can find here. I simply framed it with a few layers of plain card stock and used a chipboard sentiment from the now closed Make It Crafty along with a sentiment I printed to match.
