Whimsy Sugar cupcakes

A fun girly card today using Sugar from the Pollycraft collection at Whimsy Stamps. The cluster is made by using various die cuts on bits of scrap paper. The Quick Strips die set is great for this! The sentiment is from Enjoy the Little Things which is one of their clear stamp sets. I really quite like that stamp set as it has loads of lovely little sentiments.

Eat cupcake and be happy

I’m trying to get quite a few of the images I’ve coloured up for the two(!) colouring challenges that Kathy Raccosin has been hosting on Instagram so far this year onto cards. I think it’s going reasonably well, but the pile is rather large so I reckon I’ll be at it for quite some time! For now I will try to have a blog post every other day. Sometimes I do wonder if I’ll ever get caught up and only have a few finished coloured images laying around…

As usual I’m keeping it simple. I cut a big of a stripy background and layered over my coloured panel. Then I found a chipboard I wanted to use, coloured it up and made a matching sentiment. A bit of coloured card stock for the card base and some enamel dots and voilà! The stamp I’ve used is from Alex Syberia’s Etsy shop and is coloured up with Copic Marker.

Tiddly cupcake

I am finally back with a new Tiddly Inks card! I have had maternity leave on the Tiddly Inks team until now, but today marks the start of a new challenge and I wanted to take part in this month’s dotty adventure. To mark my return I’ve used one of my all time favourite Tiddly Inks stamp, eat more cake!

The paper is by Maja Design and the chipboard is by Make it Crafty.

Copics used: (skin) E0000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E21, E25, E29, E35, (blue) B02, B04, B06, B39, (pink) RV52, RV55, RV66, RV69

CMNs 5th birthday

This month we are celebrating Copic Marker Norges fifth birthday! Happy Birthday to us. To kick off the month we have a new birthday challenge. There will be loads of fun things both on the blog and facebook page during the month, so be sure to keep an eye out as there are some great prizes to be won!

The card I made for the birthday is done with an image from Tiddly Inks that I absolutely adore. The image is obviously coloured with copics. Most of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and lace and some flowers from Live and Love Crafts

Country cupcake

Almost weekend. I am actually looking forward to tomorrow. Some ladies at work have decided to do a hobby day. It will be interesting to see what they all make, and have some time to sit and craft. I have never been to anything like this, so I am all curious about it!

A colourful image sometimes deserves a colourful card. I had this cupcake themed paper in one of my Papermania pads and the colour matched the image perfectly. I decided to frame it with the pinky-red colour of the image and used a similar colour to frame the image. What I used was actually a cupcake wrapper, or whatever they are called. All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the punches by Martha Stewart, the card base from Craftwork Cards and the image from Lili of the Valley.
