If you need me, I’ll be there

I have something as rare as a shaker card to share with you today. I hardly ever make them, but I figured it was time for another one. The bunny on moon stamp is by Mama Elephant, which I cut out by hand, and the stitched elements are made with MFT Stamps dies. I used a Maja Design paper in blue with stars on and then used darker blue shimmery stars for the shaker area. The chipboard (text and stars) were from Make it Crafty and I coloured them in matching colours. These were used together with a sentiment strip by CZ Design/Simon Says Stamp.

I’ve taken a photo of the card laying down flat as well so you can see the little stars I’ve added to the shaker area.

Whimsy party pig

Apparently it’s May. Not entirely sure how that happened, but hey it’s mean there’s a new release up at Whimsy Stamps! I used Crissy’s party pig for my card and can you see what I’ve done different?

Yup. Pencils. Pencils on kraft. Until about a week ago I hadn’t coloured up with pencils before, not even had a try I was unhappy with. I simply hadn’t tried. I’d been told it was difficult, so I’ve just put it up and stuck with my Copics even if I got my pencils as a gift well over three years ago! I finally tried them and they are so much fun! I love the effect I get from using them on kraft paper as well. My Prismacolor pencils are definitely going to be used regularly!

LotV flying past

There is a new Lili of the Valley release today and it is full of cute little boy stamps! I absolutely love them and the one I will show you first is definitely one of my favourites! As soon as I saw the image I knew how I wanted to the card. Isn’t it great when that happens?

Whimsy Jillian

There is a new digital release at Whimsy Stamps because apparently it’s April already. How that happened, I’m not entirely sure… I’ve coloured Jillian and her little bird friend up with Copics as usual. She is a fun one to colour up, even if the hair tends to take a bit of time.

I’ve kept the card simple by using paper from Maja Design and Reprint as well as Make it Crafty chipboard and Rayher butterflies.

Bundle of joy

Baby cards are fun to make and I think I’ve made more the past year than all the previous years I’ve been card making added up. I wonder why, haha! I do like making them in the non-traditional blue and pinks as well, and this one in turquoise and purple is amongst my favourites already. The adorable stamp is by Stamping Bella, the background paper is by Lawn Fawn and the chipboard was from Make It Crafty.
