Crafty Meraki Little things

Through the whole month Crafty Meraki has been launching their very first release. It contains both clear stamps and slimline dies. One of the products I’ve gotten to play with is this pretty floral stamp called Little Things. I’ve used it twice at different angles and used autumn colours for a change.

I opted for a red card base and used a die from Altenew for the text combined with an embossed text stamp from MFT Stamps.

Copics used: YR20, YR23, YR27, YR31, E97, E09, E08, E18, E19, G43, G46, YG67, YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97, YG99, R22, R24, R29, R59, R89, BV23, BV25, BV29

Anemones

I’ve used the Paint-a-flower Anemone byย ALTENEW. Very curious what the new paint-a-flower will be, but for now I will admire the new release they have out today. (You can view it here.) It is stamped twice onto the card stock, at different angles, and then coloured up with Copic Marker as usual. I’ve used one of the stitched rectangle dies by MFT Stamps, a birthday die by Pinkfresh as well as an embossed sentiment from the Enjoy the Little Things stamp set by Whimsy Stamps. The enamel dots are off this set at Altenew.

The purples are V000, V12, V15, V17 and V09

Bunch of tulips

For my birthday I got loads of stamps from Power Poppy and this is one of them. I opted for a no-lines version again and colours I very rarely use and probably haven’t used together before.

The dies are by MFT Stamps and Pinkfresh.

A shabby chic card

It doesn’t happen very often, but sometimes I do make cards without a coloured up image. Here I’ve used Maja Design paper together with one of their printed images. I’ve used white acrylic paint around all the edges, by favourite lace and some ribbon together with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The numbers are from a MFT Stamps die and the sentiment is by Mathia Design.

Blue no-lines flowers

A while ago, I coloured up this flower stamp from Inkon3 using their Fadeout ink for the no-lines effect, but I never really got around to making it into a card.

Well, now it’s done! I bought this gorgeous panel die by Lawn Fawn a week or two ago and it’s perfect! To get a bit of contrast I used blue cardstock behind it, the same colour I’ve used on the frame and small sentiment strip. The birthday die, by Simon Says Stamp, is cut out in a slightly darker cardstock. The flower is put reasonably centred on the card, but to break up the background panel somewhat I added a rectangular white panel with the blue cardstock behind it, behind a bit over half of the coloured image.
