Thankful for you flowers

So far this year I’ve mostly been colouring up flowers. I got a gift certificate for my birthday last year at Power Poppy and it’s only now I’ve had time to sit down and colour up a few of them. Today’s card is made using one of these stamps. A little bit of experimenting with colours and keeping the card simple, as usual, is basically the recipe for this card.

The cardstock and rectangular die are both by MFT Stamps. I’ve used a sentiment from a collaboration between Hero Arts and Gina K with one of the lovely Pinkfresh inks. I’ve taken two photos again today, so here is the other one as well:

RAM Ballerina girl

Time for my first Rachelle Anne Miller project of the year. I’ve chosen one of her adorable girly stamps, a little ballerina. You can find the stamp in her shop here. The whole panel has been coloured up and then I’ve used a stitched rectangle die, embossed a sentiment and added three enamel dots as the only embellishments. The panel itself has been added with foam tape to raise it up from the card base a little.

Copics used: BV0000, BV000, BV00, BV01, BV02, BV04, RV63, RV66, RV69, YG01, YG13, YG17, YG67, Y32, Y38, E00, E02, E13, E15, E21, E23, E25, E27, E29, E49

Penguin tree

One of the cards I made in December and never got around to sharing is this one I made with the Mama Elephant Penguin Christmas Tree. Isn’t it fun?

It is another simple card where I’ve used one of MFT’s rectangle dies for the main panel, cut out some Memory Box snowflakes and added a premade sentiment from Simon Says Stamp (the CZ-collection) on foam tape over two of them.

Let’s have another photo of it:

Polkadoodles snowman skiing

My first design team project of the year is one for Polkadoodles using their latest release, Frosty Smiles. It’s all about snowmen! Which is perfect really as we’ve had a white start to the year and we have definitely made time for playing in the snow. This particular snowman is out skiing!

The sentiment, stamped with Altenew ink, is from the Spring Rose layering stamp set.

Here is another photo of the card.

Copics used: B0000, BG000, BV20, B21, B24, B26, B39, T3, T5, T7, E71, E74, E77, YR21, YR24, YR27, C00, C0, C1, C2

Whimsy Reindeer in Training

It is time for another good bye now. I’m stepping down from the Whimsy Stamps DT as well. This autumn has simply thrown me off course too much so I want to take a step back and do more “just because” crafting. I will miss being on the team and its great ladies, especially the wonderful DT leader Wendy.

For my final project I’ve used Crissy’s Reindeer in Training. I know it is a bit late for Christmas cards, but I really wanted to use this stamp and this month has been crazy so I’ve been unable to get it done to share it until now. I quite enjoyed trying to draw in a little scene for it as well. It’s good to get a head start on the Christmas cards for next year anyway, I think! The sentiment is from this set.

Here is another photo of it.

Copics used: BV0000, BV000, BV00, BV01, BV02, BV20, BG000, B0000, B01, E41, E42, E43, E44, E71, E74, E77, R22, R24, R29, E18, G14, G17, G28, C00, C0, C1, C2, C3, T1, T3, RV00

And with that is wish you all a very happy new year. May 2021 bring you fun adventures and great memories!
