Happy 30th

This is the other of the two cards I made for my sister’s birthday this year. I decided it was time to try a full panel shaker card. I’ve seen a few others make these recently so I played around a little bit to see if I could work it out. I think it turned out alright and it’s such a fun card to give away!

The background is made with distress oxide inks and then I used a background stamp from MFT Stamps on the top part of the background in a slightly darker turquoise colour. I used various sequins and blings for the shaker area and then I added a sentiment and a coloured Tiddly Inks image on top.

Have a gorilla good time

When I saw this week’s MFT Sketch challenge image I had an idea right away. 15 minutes later my card was done! I used a stamp I’d recently coloured up, matched it with two different shades of brown card stock and matching ink. All these items are from My Favorite Things. I simple Norwegian sentiment finished off the card.

This card has been entered into the following challenge:

MFT Sketch challenge #549

RAM Animal train

Today is the release day for this month’s new digital stamps in Rachelle Anne Miller’s online shop (aff. link). I simply had to pick this adorable train stamp to colour up! I opted for making it all into a baby card and used the big letter dies by MFT Stamps, where I distressed the bottom half, and added a baby chipboard over the top of it. The small enamel stars are by Altenew.

Copics used: E00, E02, E13, E15, E41, E42, E43, E44, E71, E74, E79, BG11, BG13, BG15, BG18, BG99, RV10, RV32, RV34, RV17, Y32, Y35, Y38, N0, N1, N3

Lotv Cupcake monkey

Time for another Lili of the Valley design team project. This time it comes bearing great news as well. Lili of the Valley will offer a few stamps as clear stamps and this cupcake monkey stamp is part of one of the two sheets of stamps! They will also be available in digital format as usual. For more information on the clear stamps visit the Lili of the Valley website. All the new digital stamps will be available here once they’ve been released on Monday.

The fun background on the card is also from Lili of the Valley and is a part of the Watercolour collection. The sentiments are from Papirdesign (the die cut) and Mathia Design (the stamped text).

RAM a Swining summer

It’s time for my first Rachelle Anne Miller card this month. It’s been such a busy month, but I’m hoping to still get my DT work done. Both teams knew I wouldn’t be very reliable we’re a bit into July at least. I’m glad I stayed around on two teams though, as a little bit of crafting provides such a great way to just slow down and relax a little at the moment! Anyway, you’re here for my card and not my chatting!

I’ve used this adorable girl on a swing stamp (A Swinging Summer) and added a little scene around it. Nothing fancy. The Colorado Craft Company sentiment is stamped with black ink onto the coloured panel and then I just left it at that. The panel is added to the card base using a bit of foam tape.
