Whimsy Daphne

Time for another Whimsy Stamps inspirational post. For this one I’ve used Daphne from the Wee Stamps collection. It must be one of the first times I’ve actually managed to use an Easter related stamp close to Easter!

It’s been coloured up with Copic Marker as per usual and I’ve made it into a layered card using Maja Design paper, my favorite lace, ribbon from a local shop and dies from MFT Stamps, La-La Land Crafts and Rayher.

A list of what colours I used will be added later today.

Background stamping

Sometimes it’s fun to make a background out of a stamp. For this one I’ve used a stamp from Altenew and stamped it up at random 4 times. It’s a pretty big stamp so it covers a lot of area. I then coloured it all in with my Copics, as usual, using the RV90 series. I also coloured in the card base to get a matching colour frame and then I used RV99 to make a sentiment strip. I used Gina K’s white ink for the text stamp and said text stamp is by Mathia Design (Hobbykunst). At the end I added 3 light grey enamel dots below the sentiment.

Hippo birthday (og nytt kurs)

It is time for me to prepare for my second cardmaking course in Oslo, and for that I’ve used a card I made in 2018 as inspiration. I absolutely love this effect from distress oxides combined with the adorable stamps from MFT Stamps. It was so much fun doing the first one and I’m looking forward to the next already.

Da er jeg i gang med planleggingen av kurset jeg skal holde på Hobbykunst i Oslo i februar. Igjen blir det alternative farger man kan velge, både på Copic og Distress Oxide. Dette er den ene kombinasjonen. Jeg har brukt stempler fra My Favorite Things og tekststempel fra Hulda Designstudio. For informasjon om kurset og påmelding se Hobbykunst sine hjemmesider her.

Copics used: W0, W1, W3, W5, C0, C1, C3, C5, RV00, RV02, RV04, RV06, RV09, RV10, RV63, RV66, RV69, RV91, RV93.

Merry Christmas to you all

Today, the 24th, is the day we celebrate Christmas here. It was my turn on the Copic Marker Norge calendar today, for the final day, and I felt it had to be something quite special. I’m really good at putting pressure on myself, haha. Soooo, I took 3 of Mo’s Digital Stamps images and merged them together for a really simple card. I coloured it all up in traditional colours and kept the card as simple as can be.

And with this card I’d like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. Santa’s even been by this morning, and I got my white Christmas after all. Yey!

Copics used: (red) R22, R24, R27, R39, R89, (dark green) BG90, BG93, BG96, BG99, (tree and wreath) YG13, YG63, YG67, G99, (brown) E70, E71, E74, E79, (hair) E21, E25, E27, E29, (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (orange/yellow) YR21, Y17, YR04, YR07, (white) N0, N1, N3

Colouring video – Molly Celebrates

It is time for another colouring video. I have coloured up a stamp by Tiddly Inks called Molly Celebrates. This one was meant to have audio, but when the PC broke after I’d lost my voice for over a week, I kind of just gave up, so I decided that in order for this to be up anytime soon, I’ll do it without the audio.

This video shows how to do red wavey hair that has a lot of little details, as well as how you can easily draw a pattern onto a dress or other things. As this is a digital stamp you can easily colour it up in the size you prefer.
