RAM paris in the rain

Have you ever been to Paris? It’s a lovely city! I was there nearly 18 years ago and feel I am definitely due another trip back there. The fun thing about today’s card is that the day we went to The Eiffel Tower it raining and we got there after sunset. We were lucky they even let us up that evening because of the weather. They were contemplating shutting it down because of the thunder in the distance. The view is wonderful, even in the rain.

Today it’s time for my second Rachelle Anne Miller project of the month and I used her Paris stamp for it. I decided to go with pastel colours and daylight for this, a complete contrast to my own rainy experience. The stamp is printed out in a no-line version and I used Copic markers to colour it up. I have about 1/4″ space around the image, which is on foam tape and then more foam tape for the sentiment. The sentiment means “greetings from me to you”. The Hello is a die cut from Altenew.

Copics used: E000, E00, E02, E13, E41, E42, E43, RV00, RV10, RV32, RV34, YR21, YR23, YR27, E37, T0, T1, T3, C00, C0, C1, C2, B0000, BG000, BV20, YG61, YG91

LotV a time for giving

Christmas is coming up fast. It feels particularly fast when you have so much to do you’ve barely even got time to think about Christmas… Less than a month left now and I have a fair few colourings I still want to make cards of before then.

Here I’ve coloured up one of the Lili of the Valley stamps that was released earlier this year. I think it is one of my favourites from this year!

The card itself is simple with a small cluster of die cut paper scraps, a doily, some enamel dots and a sentiment. The papers are mostly by Maja Design and the sentiment stamp is by Mama Elephant.

RAM ice Skating

October has been a very busy month so far as you might have guessed from my lack of posts on the blog so far. Thankfully things will start slowing down again next week so I plan to catch up a bit then. I have managed to make a handful of cards or so, and once I’ve managed to take the photos and write the blog posts they will start appearing here. The first one out is Rachelle Anne Miller Creative Studios Ice Skating. Her stamps are adorable and quite expressive, so I tend to make rather clean and simple cards using her stamps. And that is what I’ve done again today.

The image is coloured up and then I added some frantage to it before I put it on foam tape and added a simple sentiment from Mama Elephant across the bottom on a coloured piece of cardstock.

Copics used: E00, E02, E13, E15, BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, E08, E18, E19, E97, RV32, RV34, R37, RV99, BG72, BG75, BG78, BG99, B000, B41, BG10, N0, N2, N3

RAM Christmas Tree

I have another card to share where I’ve coloured up one of the adorable stamps by Rachelle Anne Miller. As it’s August already, it might be time to start slowly with the Christmas cards. It would save you having to do loads in November and December! That’s my goal at least, to have quite a few done before then, and I think I’m on track for it. This stamp is called Christmas Tree.

As for the rest of the card, I coloured up a matching background, and then die cut the coloured panel. I used various paper scraps and dies to make a cluster and then used a Norwegian text stamp for the Christmas sentiment.

Copics used: Y35, Y38, YR18, BV000, BV00, BV02, BV04, BV08, BV20, BV23, RV63, RV66, RV69, B12, B14, B16, B91, B93, B95, B97, B99, BG90, BG93, BG96, BG99, G21, G24, G28, E00, E02, E13, E15, E21, E25, E29, E41, E42, E43, E44, E71, E74, E77, N0, N2, C0, W0, W2, W5

LotV boy and his dinosaur

I made a really fun and colourful card for the latest Lili of the Valley stamp release. The new boy stamps are adorable, and I love this little one riding on a dinosaur with loads of presents and a little cupcake at the tip of the dinosaur’s tail!

The card is kept simple. I used distress inks to create a matching panel to have on the side of the coloured image and put the sentiment stamp on bright orange card stock. Because birthday cards are supposed to be fun, right?
