RAM + MFT

MFT Stamps has started selling clear stamp with Rachelle Anne Miller‘s lovely illustrations. I’ve been so lucky that I’ve gotten to play with one of the first ones they released last week! It is called Care of My Heart.

I coloured the girl up three times. The first two my markers were fighting back, but I finally won on attempt number three. After colouring it up I’ve cut it out by hand and then made a little background on white cardstock. I’ve used stamps from MFT called Distressed Patterns with various Altenew and Distress Oxide Inks. The sentiment is from the same set as the girl stamp. Both the dark turquoise cardstock and the stitched rectangle dies are from MFT as well.

Polkadoodles frosty smiles New Friends

We have had such a great winter so far this year. It started snowing right before new years and yesterday it snowed loads! Unfortunately it’s been replaced by rain today. I hope it doesn’t all rain away. White and pretty beats grey and wet any day at this time of year!

So today’s card had to be another winter themed one! I’ve used one of the newer Polkadoodles stamps again. It’s called Frosty Winter Smiles – New Friends. This time I’ve opted for a pink card, and I coloured up the stamp in no-lines again. The main background paper is from the Blushing Blooms paper pad. For decorations I’ve made a cluster with various die cuts using scrap paper I’ve had laying around as well as more from the Blushing Blooms pad. A simple sentiment to kick start the Christmas cards for next winter and some enamel dots finishes off the look.

I’ve taken another photo of the card as well.

Copics used: T0, T1, T3, B0000, BG000, BV20, BV23, BV0000, BV00, BV02, BV04, W7, E23, E25, E29, YR31, YR23, E35, R81, RV32, RV34, RV95

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:

Crafty Meraki shaker card

It’s Tuesday and time for another Crafty Meraki project. I’ve made another shaker card this week and this time I’ve used the full bigger frame from Frame Worthy slimline dies set. The stamps I decided to use this time is from the Flurry of Love set by My Favorite Things, and I made it with a subtle purple as the main colour. I’ve used nearly all the stamps from said set and masked them together. Then I used the frame to make the shaker area filling it with various sequins in matching colours before adding two sentiments on top.

Here is another photo where the shaker elements aren’t covering the whole image

RAM Christmas Sled

It is time for another DT project for Rachelle Anne Miller Creative Studios. This time I have used the stamp Christmas Sled. It is such a cute little stamp! I printed it towards the bottom of the page because I wanted to give making my own background for it a go…

I’ve been looking at and admiring Sandy Allnock’s awesome colouring for a while and I’ve seen a card that inspired me to try to make my own background. I don’t have a lot of time, so I never have time to actually watch videos and such, so I decided to give it a go on my own and see if I could make something of the sorts. And I did! I’m happy with how it turned out, and I know I need a fair bit more practice, but it was fun and not at all as difficult as I had expected it to be!

I have to say I am a bit surprised how funny the transparent sequins look in the photo, but at least they look pretty cool on the card itself! The sentiment is from a collaboration between Mama Elephant and Simon Says Stamp, and I used Altenew ink on it.

The Copic colours will be added sometime tomorrow, so check back then if you’re curious!
