MFT Superstar coloring virtuoso

Apparently it’s that time of year again. The time when MFT Stamps are having their annual contest. So I spent some time masking and colouring and squinting trying to see where to colour the various bits. Here it is, my entry for the colouring part of the Superstar contest.

I have used five different stamp sets to make this. The girl, the cupcake stand and the biggest present is from the Sweet Birthday Wishes stamp set, the 3 smaller presents and the balloons are from Beary Special Birthday, the banner is from Up in the Air, the birds are from the Happy Hippos set and the clouds are from Scene Builder.

I’ve used one of the STAX rectangles for the panel itself, the cardstock is After Midnight and the embossed sentiment is off the Bitty Bears set.

Copics used: (skin) E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E08, E18, E19, E49, E97, (turquoise) BG11, BG15, BG18, BG78, (blue) B24, B26, B39, (pink) RV10, RV63, RV66, RV69, RV99, (yellow) Y32, Y35, Y38, YR27, (grey) C0, C1, C3, C5, (white) W0, W1, W3, (dark cupcake) E71, E74, E77, E79, (light cupcake) E41, E42, E43, (grass) YG13, YG17, YG67, YG99, (sky) BG10, B00, B01, B12

Born a long time ago

Some stamps set you just have to have. This is one of those for me. It’s by Clearly Besotted and it’s adorable! The dinosaur plushie stamps actually got me trying masking properly for the first time. I opted for a bit of random colours and on the background I decided to do a jagged edge. I quite like how that turned out so I’ll have to do it again. The sentiment is part of the stamp set and then I used some MFT cardstock and Altenew enamel dots to finish off the card.

More distress fun

Here is the second card I made with the elephant and hippo sets from MFT Stamps for the course I’ll be having in a week and a half in Oslo. I went for blues and greens this time to contrast the pinks of the other card.

Dette er ett av to fargekombinasjoner man kan velge på kurset jeg skal ha hos Hobbykunst i Oslo 8. februar. Her blir det grønn, turkis og blå i både Distress Oxide og Copic Marker. Vi lager bakgrunnen og fargelegger motivene sammen. For mer info og påmelding, ta en titt innom Hobbykunst sine hjemmesider. Tekststemplet er fra Huldra Designstudio.

Here is a photo of both of them together:

LLLC: Happy Boo to You

Today there is a new La-La Land Crafts release out. Halloween! Yey! Ok, so I don’t really celebrate Halloween, and it’s not a big thing here, but the past couple of years I’ve carved a pumpkin and it’s quite a lot of fun. Looking forward to doing that again this year. Anyway, new release, yey! Let’s take a closer look at some of it. There is even a full sentiment stamp set! Wooo!

I’ve got to say, bright and bold colours with a dash of black silouetted dies… LOVE IT! It’s been quite a lot of fun to play with this release and colours mixed with black. If you haven’t tried doing that, then you really should!

The background is made with distress oxide inks and I’ve used various dies, cut out in black, and a sentiment to get the feel I wanted for the card. Then I used this adorable witch stamp from Happy Boo to You and coloured it in with matching colours and voila! Halloween card done! You can find a list of all the dies (old and new) and stamps listed below.
