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

RAM Letters to Santa

I have finally been able to sit down and make a few cards again. First one out is this adorable stamp by Rachelle Anne Miller. It is called Letters to Santa and I’ve coloured it up with my Copic markers.

The card itself is reasonable simple with a die cut main panel and some paper scraps die cut into various scraps for the cluster in the corner. The sentiment is from Papirdesign and most of the paper scraps are Maja Design papers.

Copics used: E00, E02, E13, E15, E41, E42, E43, E44, E71, E74, E77, E79, B91, B93, B95, B97, B99, W0, W1, W3, W5, W7, W9, C0, C1, C3, G28, G43, G46, YG63, BG99, B0000, BV20, BV23

RAM ice Skating

October has been a very busy month so far as you might have guessed from my lack of posts on the blog so far. Thankfully things will start slowing down again next week so I plan to catch up a bit then. I have managed to make a handful of cards or so, and once I’ve managed to take the photos and write the blog posts they will start appearing here. The first one out is Rachelle Anne Miller Creative Studios Ice Skating. Her stamps are adorable and quite expressive, so I tend to make rather clean and simple cards using her stamps. And that is what I’ve done again today.

The image is coloured up and then I added some frantage to it before I put it on foam tape and added a simple sentiment from Mama Elephant across the bottom on a coloured piece of cardstock.

Copics used: E00, E02, E13, E15, BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, E08, E18, E19, E97, RV32, RV34, R37, RV99, BG72, BG75, BG78, BG99, B000, B41, BG10, N0, N2, N3

Whimsy would follow you anywhere

I looked at my phone this morning and it said “October”. I’m not sure I’m ready for that. Don’t get me wrong, I love the beautifully coloured trees, the fresh wind and the non-guilty hot-chocolate moments with a blanket because it’s not too warm for it anymore, but still. Winter is just a tad bit too close. That also means Christmas is coming closer. Are you ready? Have you started on your cards? Mine are actually mostly done! And I have another one to show you today.

A new month also means a new Whimsy Stamps release! I’ve played with one of the new digital stamps. It has a penguin AND a polar bear. Doesn’t get much better than that, right? You can find it here. I didn’t use any dies this time as I cut the coloured panel and then I just tore across the top so I could have some background paper peeking through, but if you prefer dies then the Slimline card builder die so work well for this.

Copics ued: (red) R22, R24, R27, R29, R59, R89, (dark grey) N3, N5, N7, N9, (light grey, penguin – hat – ground) N0, N1, N3, (orange) Y32, Y35, Y38, E97, (polar bear) W0, W1, W2, W3, (paw) E41, E42, E43,

Polkadoodles Winnie xmas wishes

Another Polkadoodles project on the menu today! The stamp is called Just for You and I’ve opted for traditional reds and greens in the colouring. For the card itself, however, I wanted a blue and white wintery feel, so I used patterned paper in those colours which I painted with white acrylic paint around the edge. The peace and joy background paper is from the Gnome Season paper pack. The circle die is from the stitched and pierced nested circles set.

Copics used: BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, N0, N1, N3, N5, N7, R24, R27, R29, R59, R89, G21, G43, G46, BG99, E00, E02, E13, E15, E41, E42, E43, E44, E71, E74, E77, E79, B0000, B000
