Hexagon flowers

Yup, you’re seeing the right thing here. I’m finally back with a new post! I’ve added a few photos to Instagram over the past few months, but not a lot to the blog. That is going to change as I think I will finally have some more time again! First up I have this card I made using a Pinkfresh die to cut apart one of my Altenew colourings. It is the Clematis stamp I’ve used for this. Each hexagon is made up of 4 layers: 3 layers of normal card stock and then this coloured stamp on top.

To finish off the look I added a hello die cut (also Altenew), an embossed sentiment and some pearls (which didn’t photograph well).

Lotv Single flower

Today’s card features a Lili of the Valley stamp and I’ve made it yellow and cheerful. The sweet bear is coloured up with Copic markers and I didn’t go as heavy on the contrasts today as I usually do. You can find the stamp in their Etsy shop here.

The background paper is by Waffle Flower and the sentiment by Mathia Design. For fun I decided to draw in a border around the coloured panel.

Colouring video: Miss Your Smile

There is a new colouring video up on my YouTube channel Lizlandcards and this time it’s my pencils that have gotten to come out to play again. I’ve coloured up this slimline stamp by Pinkfresh Studio called Miss Your Smile designed by Emily Midgett. She draws the most gorgeous flowers!

Prismacolor Premier pencils used: Yellow: 1002, 1003, 916. 914, 1011, Pink: 930, 994, 993, 1014, Green: 1092, 912, 1005, White: 938

Another pencil coloured flower

As you’ve noticed I am quite fond of colouring with pencils on kraft. I have yet to actually try to use them on anything else! This time I’ve coloured up a stamp from Power Poppy. The numbers were cut out using an MFT Stamps die and then coloured up with the same pencils so it would match the colour of the flower. I finished it off with the recipient’s name and a few enamel dots.

Thankful for you flowers

So far this year I’ve mostly been colouring up flowers. I got a gift certificate for my birthday last year at Power Poppy and it’s only now I’ve had time to sit down and colour up a few of them. Today’s card is made using one of these stamps. A little bit of experimenting with colours and keeping the card simple, as usual, is basically the recipe for this card.

The cardstock and rectangular die are both by MFT Stamps. I’ve used a sentiment from a collaboration between Hero Arts and Gina K with one of the lovely Pinkfresh inks. I’ve taken two photos again today, so here is the other one as well:
