Happy birthday bear in present

I’ve used Beary Special Birthday from MFT Stamps for this card. If you’d like to see how I colour up this kind of stamp, please see this video.

The background is made with distress oxide ink with a stamp by Simon Says Stamp inked with Altenew on top. The numbers and embossed text is by MFT Stamps and the stars are chipboards I’ve coloured up in a matching colour.

Copics used for the bow: B21, B24, B26, B39

Colouring Video: Beary Special Birthday

A quick video colouring up this whole image to show how to colour up a fancy bow. The stamp is by My Favorite Things from the stamp set Beary Special Birthday. The stamp itself is no longer available at MFT Stamps as it has been retired, but various local shops may have it still so check yours.

Here is an example of a card I’ve made using this stamp:

RAM Birthday Mouse

Rachelle Anne Miller Creative Studio released some adorable celebration stamps in March and I have coloured up one of them, Birthday Mouse, for today’s card.

I wanted a fun and colourful card, so got out a distress oxide ink, some altenew ink, a background stamp and various dies from MFT Stamps, La-La Land Crafts and Papirdesign. I stuck with the colour scheme from the coloured image.

Copics used: RV00, RV21, RV23, RV25, RV29, V12, V15, V17, V09, YG21, YG23, YG17, YG67, E41, E42, E43, E44, E74, E79, W0, W1, W3, W5, N0, N3

Magnolia Blossoms

Did you see the video I put up in the middle of March? Well, you can find it here, if you haven’t seen it yet. I’m showing how I coloured up this stamp from My Favorite Things called Magnolia Blossoms. Today the card is ready. I’ve drawn in a black whimsical border and some random dots, gave it a narrow cut to have a white border on the side. Then I used black ink on a stamp by Avery Elle.

Colouring Video – Magnolia Blossoms

I have another pencil colouring video for you today. This time I’ve used a stamp by My Favorite Things called Magnolia Blossoms. The image has been stamped twice at slightly different angles using GinaK Designs’ Amalgam Ink and it has been coloured up using Prismacolor Premier Pencils.

There’s no audio this time either and the video itself has been sped up so that it is twice as fast as the real time colouring. Then you have an idea of how long it took to colour it. It takes longer to make the actual video than it takes to colour up the image, that’s for sure!
