Alex Syberia Designs Kickstarter Campaign | Blog Hop 1 & Giveaway

The moment has arrived!! Alex Syberia Designs Kickstarter Campaign is live!

I have gotten to play with some of the new images and here is the first card I want to show you. I have used my Prismacolor Pencils on kraft paper to colour up the gorgeous flower on the Life is Good set and then used parts of the Hello Lovely sentiment stamp to go with. The whole collection is great really and I can’t wait to show more cards!

Slimline flowers

I’ve finally finished the card I made with the Pinkfresh Studio flowers I coloured up with my Prismacolor pencils for my video back in August: see it here. I’ve drawn a border around the coloured panel and stamped a birthday greeting from Papertrey Ink. A few sequins and then some die cut butterflies from La-La Land Crafts made up the rest of the card.

Saying hi with flowers

I’ve coloured up one of Emily Midgett’s colouring panels. A dash of yellow for the flowers and a bright yellow background. The only decorations are a few transparent sequins and a die cut sentiment. The sentiment is actually the hello die by Altenew (aff.link) which I cut into a Norwegian equivalent. I admit it worked a lot better than I had thought and it doesn’t look like it’s been cut, I think. Love it when you can use a die like that!

RAM flower love birds

It’s time for another DT project using the lovely digital images by Rachelle Anne Miller. For today’s project, Rachelle herself got to pick what stamp I was to use. The stamp she picked is called Flower Love Birds. It isn’t really the type I would have chosen myself, but I love a good challenge so I’ve made two cards with it. To keep the cards similar I’ve used the same markers and kept both cards simple.

For the first one I’ve used the stamp as is.

For card number two I’ve rearranged the flowers and used a few of them more than one.

Here both cards are together.

Crafty Meraki new beginning

December already and although I have a lot of winter and Christmas themed cards to show you this month, I am starting off with a floral card! Today’s project is a card made using the Little Things floral stamp from Crafty Meraki’s own collection. I started out by making a line in the middle with a black marker and masked off one half of the card, then I stamped the flower stamp before masking the other side, rotating the stamp set and stamping again. That way I used the same part of the stamp twice.

Once I had coloured it up I used part of a sentiment stamp from the Colorado Craft Company collaboration set, before using the rest of the same sentiment next to it instead of having it under as it was designed. I glued it onto lilac MFT card stock and used matching enamel dots from Altenew.

And here is a close-up photo for you.
