Crafty Meraki shaker card

It’s Tuesday and time for another Crafty Meraki project. I’ve made another shaker card this week and this time I’ve used the full bigger frame fromย Frame Worthy slimline diesย set. The stamps I decided to use this time is from the Flurry of Love set by My Favorite Things, and I made it with a subtle purple as the main colour. I’ve used nearly all the stamps from said set and masked them together. Then I used the frame to make the shaker area filling it with various sequins in matching colours before adding two sentiments on top.

Here is another photo where the shaker elements aren’t covering the whole image

Copics used: C0, C2, BV0000, BV02, B91, B95, B97, B99, E41, E42, E43, E71, E74, E77, E79, YG61, YG63, YG67, BG99, N1, N3, N5, N7, N9, Y35, Y38, E07

Crafty Meraki Butterfly orchid

It is Tuesday again so that means it’s time for another Crafty Meraki project. The project I have made for today is actually a shaker card! I don’t tend to make many of those, but with the great Frame Worthy slimline dies I simply couldn’t help myself. I coloured up a no-line version of the Meraki butterfly and cut it out by hand. Then I used two of the frame dies and cut them to the length I wanted before filling it with sequins in colours matching the butterfly. An embossed MFT Stamps (Bitty Bears) sentiment on matching cardstock with a few enamel dots by Altenew finished it all off nicely.

Here is a photo of it laying down flat.

Copics used: BG11, BG13, BG15, BG18, BG78, RV00, RV02, RV52, RV55, RV66, RV69, N3, N5, N7, N9, G94, G99

Flying magical dragon

I decided a bit last minute to enter in this week’s sketch challenge over at MFT Stamps. I’ve been inspired by Torico for this card. The sky is made with Distress Oxide Inks in the colours Spiced Marmalade, Abandoned Coral and Seedless Preserves. The adorable dragon is from MFT’s Magical Dragons stamp set. It is rather impossible to fussy cut out the swirly part of the tail by hand so I opted to just cut it off entirely. The stamp is fiddly enough as it is to cut out, hahaha.

Copics used: V01, V12, V15, V17, V09, Y32, Y35, Y38, E97

Crafty Meraki japanese peony

It’s Friday again already? Anybody else feeling the days and, well, September just rushing past? I can’t believe it’s almost October! Today I have another “just because” card for you. I’ve used Studio Katia’s Japanese Peony. I stamped it on the edge of my precut card panel so that the flowers would have sharp edges to go in the bottom corner of my card and I coloured it up with Copics. You can find a list of colours at the bottom of the post. I then fussy cut it and put it on foam pads.

The background is made using a feathery stencil by Altenew and Distress Oxide Ink in the colour Pumice Stone. I’ve made up the sentiment from a small text strip and a die cut “you” with a few enamel dots around it.

Copics used: RV10, RV32, RV34, RV17, R39, G21, G43, G46, BG99, N5, N9

Alex Syberia autumn harvest

Alex Syberia Design is out with a new release today and I’ve been lucky to be asked to guest design for it! For my first project I’ve made a slimline card using this harvest stamp. There is an Instagram Hop for this release today as well.

After I had coloured it all up, I finally came up with a layout I wanted to try. As much as I keep telling myself it’s only paper, it’s still a bit scary to just tear up the paper with your coloured image after you’re not only done with it, but really happy with it (especially that pumpkin)! Thankfully it didn’t only work, but I got it pretty much how I’d pictured it.

I used kraft cardstock for the base of the card and the paper that is peeking out from behind the coloured panel is from the latest Maja Design release. I’ve used a die and enamel dots from Altenew and then embossed an MFT Stamps sentiment on matching orange cardstock.

Copics used: YR24, YR27, E08, E18, E19, YG21, YG93, YG97, YG99, V22, V25, V28, BV23, BV25, BV29, R12, R43, R46, R37, R39, W0, W1, W3, W5, W7, YG21, G21, G94, G99
