Thankful for you

There’s no secret that turquoise is my favourite colour. For my birthday this year I got a gift certificate for stamps at Power Poppy and I bought loads! These sunflowers in a vase is one of them. Isn’t it pretty? I layered it on the side of the panel and printed on a part of it. I think it looks pretty good on the side like this. I used a sentiment stamp from a collaboration set made by Hero Arts and Gina K Design and inked it up with ink from Altenew. The enamel dots are also from Altenew, whereas the cardstock is by MFT Stamps.

Yellow statement flower

I love this stamp (and it’s actually in stock as I type up this blog post as well, for a change!). I know I recently coloured it up in pale pink (see here), but I couldn’t help myself and had to colour it up in yellow as well. Yellow is really not my colour, but it is a very pretty colour when it comes to flowers so I figured it would be perfect for this stamp! The stamp, Statement Flowers, is by ALTENEW. This time I turned the stamp set around a bit more to make a low card instead of a tall one. It’s great that you can use the stamp in either direction!

I used Inkon3’s Fadeout Ink to get the no-lines effect. I love that ink pad! It’s by far my favourite of the ink pads I have tried for no-lines colouring! I stamped the sentiment (from the Paint-a-Flower: Poppy set) using Evergreen from the Zesty Limes mini cubes set, the smaller sentiment stamp is from the Statement Flower stamp set, but it’s in quite a faint shade of yellow, so not easy to photograph. The enamel dots are from Altenew as well, but unfortunately they didn’t photograph very well either this time as they are such a pale green colour.

Here is another photo of the card.

Hello there, butterfly

I went out yesterday and purchased me another Magnolia stamp, or… a few, actually! I know what I am like with rubber stamps, though, so I quickly stamped up a few of them to have them at hand before I forget all about even buying them… Before I started on the image I had decided I wanted to do one with loads of layers, and pink. Because I haven’t done pink in a while!

As usual I’ve coloured it in with Copics, the pink candi is also coloured with Copics. I’ve used a bunch of Maja Design papers, cut out the text sentiment, used a Tim Holtz charm, some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and a bit of white acrylic paint and frantage. I had to cut out the image by hand as I’d managed to stamp it up so terribly it couldn’t stay with its background, haha.

Let’s take a closer look of the girl. It was a bit fiddly to cut it out by hand!
