kraft Birthday dragon

When I saw the new sketch challenge over at MFT Stamps, I quickly knew that I had to make card using this little dragon. I coloured up the dragon last month using my Prismacolor pencils and I thought it would look cool having the kraft elements of the sketch on a white background. The sentiment is Norwegian and means “congratulations“. I figured bright pink would make it stand out well.

This card has been entered into the following challenge:

MFT Stamps – Sketch #503

Dragon and snowdrop

I have coloured up a few of Lee Holland‘s adorable images this year, but I think this might be the first time one of them has made its way onto a card. It would work as both a birthday card and a Christmas card (well, and encouragement and friendship cards), but in the end I opted to make a birthday card out of it by using a Papirdesign sentiment. I kept the whole thing quite simple. The stamp was coloured up using Prismacolor pencils.

Whimsy Wee Freddie

For my second release project for Whimsy Stamps I picked the adorable dragon Freddie from the Wee Stamps collection. I’ve kept the card very simple, using a sentiment also from Whimsy Stamps.

Copics used: (purple) V000, V09, V12, V15, V17, (orange) E08, YR04, YR07, YR20, YR23, (pink) RV17, RV55, RV63, RV69, (green) YG13, YG67, (ground) N0, N1, N3, N5 + white Gelly Roll

Whimsy blog hop

Blog hop time! Are you ready?!

I have made a non-romance type card, because there are different kinds of love. This card is for someone very special indeed, and I guess it is more a mix of Agape and Storge kind of love, instead of Eros. More info on the different kinds of love, and the whole blog hop, on the Whimsy Stamps blog.

There are also chances to win from random comments on a few different DT creations. The hop runs until 2pm EST (that is 20:00 here in Norway) on Valentine’s Day 14th February. The grand prize is 5 digital stamps and there are winners on three blogs who will win one digital image each, as well as some extra chances on the Whimsy Stamps blog itself.

The card has been made using some of my favourite dies and for once I also used flowers on it! Cheesecloth, lace and ribbon are all present on this layered card with Papirdesign and Maja Design paper. The adorable stamp is from the Wee Stamps collection at Whimsy Stamps and is called Dreamy Dragon.

The first thing you might notice is that I’ve changed the background image of my photo, haha. Well, that’s because this card has a grey base on the outer most layer which didn’t look great with my usual grey background. So now you know that.

Anyway, we’re hopping a bit at random, so you can go visit whoever you like! Just make sure you leave a comment while you’re here, for a chance to win.

Here is another photo for you as well

So hop along and visit one of these wonderful ladies to see what they have made, or better still… go visit them all! Here is a list of the wonderful DT with links to their blog. It’s in alphabetical order!

Distressed rainbow, and a dragon

Today I have a very colourful card to show you. I made the background using various distress oxide inks, mostly just to see if I could manage to make something like a rainbow. I thought it turned out pretty cool so I flicked some water onto it to get the right effect and decided to keep it and use it as a background for a card. The stamp I chose to go with it is from Wild Rose Studio, and it had been forever since I last coloured it so it was about time, right?!

I decided, as usual nowadays, to keep the card clean and simple, so I used some plain card stock in a deep orange colour to which I added a text stamp from My Favorite Things.
