Elephant birthday

On Tuesday, a friend and I decided that we were going to attempt the new MFT Stamps sketch challenge, no matter what it was, when the new one was out. That was yesterday. My card came along pretty nicely. I used some stamps I coloured up a while back and kept the same colour scheme for the rest of the card, using blue, turquoise and lime green Distress Oxide inks. I cut out the coloured panels using dies from MFT Stamps and the stamps are also from them as well, the Happy Hippos and Adorable Elephants sets. I finished the card off with a Norwegian sentiment, which means happy birthday, by Mathia Design (Hobbykunst) and a few enamel dots from Altenew.

This card has been entered into the following challenge:

MFT Stamps – Sketch challenge #490

Birthday wishes

I had fun playing around with Distress Oxide Inks again. A couple of pink shades this time. I did a random circle and a strip on the side which I then doodled around using my Copic multiliner and then I added some white dots in various sizes using a sharpie marker. I then drew up some dots on the top and bottom before adding my bear and sentiment to it. I coloured up the cardstock for the die cut in a matching colour as well. The die and the bear are both MFT Stamps..

More distress fun

Here is the second card I made with the elephant and hippo sets from MFT Stamps for the course I’ll be having in a week and a half in Oslo. I went for blues and greens this time to contrast the pinks of the other card.

Dette er ett av to fargekombinasjoner man kan velge på kurset jeg skal ha hos Hobbykunst i Oslo 8. februar. Her blir det grønn, turkis og blå i både Distress Oxide og Copic Marker. Vi lager bakgrunnen og fargelegger motivene sammen. For mer info og påmelding, ta en titt innom Hobbykunst sine hjemmesider. Tekststemplet er fra Huldra Designstudio.

Here is a photo of both of them together:

Hippo birthday (og nytt kurs)

It is time for me to prepare for my second cardmaking course in Oslo, and for that I’ve used a card I made in 2018 as inspiration. I absolutely love this effect from distress oxides combined with the adorable stamps from MFT Stamps. It was so much fun doing the first one and I’m looking forward to the next already.

Da er jeg i gang med planleggingen av kurset jeg skal holde på Hobbykunst i Oslo i februar. Igjen blir det alternative farger man kan velge, både på Copic og Distress Oxide. Dette er den ene kombinasjonen. Jeg har brukt stempler fra My Favorite Things og tekststempel fra Hulda Designstudio. For informasjon om kurset og påmelding se Hobbykunst sine hjemmesider her.

Copics used: W0, W1, W3, W5, C0, C1, C3, C5, RV00, RV02, RV04, RV06, RV09, RV10, RV63, RV66, RV69, RV91, RV93.

Hero Arts and Lion King

For the longest time, (yes we are talking years here,) my sister wanted a Lion King themed card for her birthday. I was never really able to find what I wanted to use for it until a couple of months ago when I came across two perfect stamp sets from Hero Arts.Funnily enough, her birthday was right around the time of the premiere of the new Lion King film as well. My sister finally got her birthday card and I no longer have to be annoyed at that one little challenge I seemed unable to complete. Thank you, Hero Arts! Oh, and I had to promise to get her the film once it’s out on Blu Ray, too!

I used Distress Oxide Ink for the background and coloured up Make it Crafty alphabet letters using Copic.
