RAM Christmas Sled

It is time for another DT project for Rachelle Anne Miller Creative Studios. This time I have used the stamp Christmas Sled. It is such a cute little stamp! I printed it towards the bottom of the page because I wanted to give making my own background for it a go…

I’ve been looking at and admiring Sandy Allnock’s awesome colouring for a while and I’ve seen a card that inspired me to try to make my own background. I don’t have a lot of time, so I never have time to actually watch videos and such, so I decided to give it a go on my own and see if I could make something of the sorts. And I did! I’m happy with how it turned out, and I know I need a fair bit more practice, but it was fun and not at all as difficult as I had expected it to be!

I have to say I am a bit surprised how funny the transparent sequins look in the photo, but at least they look pretty cool on the card itself! The sentiment is from a collaboration between Mama Elephant and Simon Says Stamp, and I used Altenew ink on it.

The Copic colours will be added sometime tomorrow, so check back then if you’re curious!

Polkadoodles witch

It’s time for another Polkadoodles card! I used Winnie Wednesday Witch and decided to make a birthday card from it. We don’t tend to make a big deal of Halloween here, even if it’s a little bigger every year, so Halloween cards is something I don’t make many of. To have a fitting sentiment for this card, I decided to just write one up and print it. I really wanted a wicked one!

What I do enjoy though, however, is to carve pumpkins and due to various restrictions and unfortunate circumstances due to the current pandemic I ended up carving three of them this year. You can see the photos of them on my Instagram account!

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.
