Sommer vibes

This month’s challenge over at Copic Marker Norge doesn’t last for just this month, but throughout summer. Our theme had to be something summery for it, didn’t it? And it is, summer vibes.

I decided to colour up a stamp by The Paper Shelter as they have a great selection of summery ones. I was a little unsure of how I wanted to colour up the background and contemplated both a park look as well as a cityscape, but on the day I coloured it up we had a bright blue cloudless sky all day, so that’s what I went for in the end.

To make the card I used MFT Stamps rectangle dies to cut the panel and put it on top of some Maja Design paper. A couple of butterflies made with Rayher dies in a matching colour, some enamel dots to match the handbag and an embossed sentiment by Mathia Design (Hobbykunst) were all the things I needed to complete my card.

Copics used: (sky) B0000, B00, B01, B02, B04, (grass) G21, G24, G28, (yellow) YR20, YR21, YR23, E35, (red) R22, R24, R29, R89, (skin) E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E08, E18, E49, E97

We’re going to miss you

I’m still trying to get through all the images I coloured up for the two daily colouring challenges that ran nearly back to back this spring. The one I’ve used for today’s card is the first one I coloured up for those, back on 1st March. It’s a stamp by Gina K Designs. The stamp is massive, so I had to cut off a little to fit it onto my standard sized cards. I cut it slightly smaller on the edges so I could have a thin red border on each side. The sentiment says “we’re going to miss you” in Norwegian and is by Mathia Design (Hobbykunst). Three enamel dots, in black, and that’s my card done!

Stamping bella donuts (og kurs)

(Kursinfo lenger ned.) What a fun stamp to colour up! This yummy stamp is by Stamping Bella and I love how she is peeking up over the pile of donuts as she’s grabbing the top one! I kept the card simple by putting it off-centre on the purple card stock. I cut out the letters h, e and i using a MFT die (the word hei means hello) and then embossed a Mathia Design stamp onto black card stock to put on top. A few enamel dots and my card was done!

Jeg skal ha kurs i fargelegging av dette motivet Hobbykunst i Oslo 27. juni. For mer informasjon og pΓ₯melding klikk her.

Spring break

Another floral card, completely different to the one I put up a few days ago. For this one I’ve coloured up a Power Poppy stamp. I’m quite pleased with how the colouring turned out on this one. Sometimes the card doesn’t need a lot of stuff added, at least I think so. So I just added a sentiment stamp by Mathia Design and a few enamel dots by Altenew.

Copics used: (green) YG03, G24, G94, G99, (yellow/orange) YR20, YR21, YR23, E97, E08, E19, (pink) RV63, RV66, RV69, (purple) V22, V25, V28, BV29, (sky) B60, B63, (ground) N3, N5, N7

Background stamping

Sometimes it’s fun to make a background out of a stamp. For this one I’ve used a stamp from ALTENEW and stamped it up at random 4 times. It’s a pretty big stamp so it covers a lot of area. I then coloured it all in with my Copics, as usual, using the RV90 series. I also coloured in the card base to get a matching colour frame and then I used RV99 to make a sentiment strip. I used Gina K’s white ink for the text stamp and said text stamp is by Mathia Design (Hobbykunst). At the end I added 3 light grey enamel dots below the sentiment.
