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.
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
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!
Thanks for popping by and I hope you have a great Valentine’s Day with whoever you choose to spend it with, even if it’s just your favorite book character!
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.
Copics used: (green) YG01, YG13, YG63, YG67, (lilac) V00, V12, V15, V17, (yellow) Y11, Y13, Y19, (red) R22, R24, R59
I randomly decided to follow a sketch this morning. I have only done that once or twice before, I think, but I saw it and thought why not. It is the sketch for the Wednesday Sketch Challenge at MFT Card Challenge. I figured I then might as well use their stamps and enter in the challenge, so I decided on the Magical Dragons and my favourite colour. The dragon stamp was combined with balloons from the Happy Hippos set and the sentiment from the Adorable Elephants set.
The paper is from Papermania, the circular die from La-La Land Crafts and some candi.
Copics used: BG70, BG72, BG75, Y11, Y13, Y19, V91, V93, V95, R00, R20, R22, C1, C3, C5
