Altenew Statement Flowers

Sometimes you simply cannot get a hold of a stamp you want. That is how it was for me with this stamp, Statement Flowers by ALTENEW. I finally got a hold of it this morning and coloured it up while the baby was having a nap. I coloured in the card base to match my colouring (RV93) and used a GinaK/HeroArts sentiment. I stamped the sentiment using Fresh Leaf from the Zesty Limes mini cubes set. The enamel dots are from Altenew as well, from the Green Fields set.

Copics used: (pink) RV91, RV93, RV95, (brown) E70, E71, E74, E77, (lighter green) G40, G21, G24, (darker green) BG90, BG93, BG96

Whimsy Wee Dolly

June is here and that means not only summer is official here, but also the new release over at Whimsy Stamps. For my release project this month I’ve coloured up Dolly from the Wee Stamps collection using Copic Marker. The text is in Norwegian and means “I greatly appreciate you”.

I’ve done similar to what I did on the card a few days ago, but instead of die cutting the background paper I’ve instead die cut the panel I’ve coloured up and made a long card instead of a tall one. It’s great how you can use one die to get different looking cards. You can find the border die here. And if you like to jazz up the text using some big letters, Whimsy has a great set here.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E08, E18, E49, E97, (green) G21, G24, G94, G99, (pink) RV10, RV17, RV32, RV34, (white) N0, N1, N3

Thankful for a friend like you

Another simple card with focus on the colouring. I’ve used a stamp set from Gina K / Simon Says Stamp (it was a freebie with purchase at SSS) for both the flower and text stamps.

Copics used: V12, V15, V17, V09, G94, G99, YG03, YG17, Y32, Y38, E08, E18

Whimsy Frog Prince

Leap year day today. 29th February, so of course I had to post something as it’ll be a while until I have that opportunity again! I’ve used the Frog Prince from the Wee Stamps collection over at Whimsy Stamps for this card. I’ve stuck with my CAS card size and made it a semi-layered card.

Copics used: YG01, G21, G24, G28, BG99, B21, B23, B26, B39, Y32, Y35, Y38, N5, N7, N9

Time for a drink (og fargeleggingskurs)

I am planning yet another course, because it turns out it’s fun having them! And this is what I have on the menu this time. I’ve coloured up a Stamping Bella stamp, it’s from the latest release, and the focus will be on hair and skin this time around.

Jeg er i full gang med å planlegge enda et kurs. Dette skal være i slutten av mars, på en torsdag, og all informasjon, og påmeldingen, finner du hos Hobbykunst her. De vil, som vanlig, bli to ulike fargekombinasjoner man kan velge, og dette er den ene av dem. Hovedfokuset på dette kurset vil være fargelegging av hud og hår, og dette er motivet vi kommer til å bruke.

Det kommer også et kurs i april, med natur som tema, og et i juni hvor vi skal prøve oss på no-lines. Info kommer snart på Hobbykunst sine sider, og påmelding er allerede mulig.
