Colouring Video: MFT + RAM Birthday Cutie

I have another new video for you today! And I am hoping I’ll be able to add them at least monthly from now on! This time I’ve coloured up one of the new My Favorite Things stamps in a no-line version. The stamp is from the new Rachelle Anne Miller line and is called Birthday Cutie. It is a clear stamp and to get the no-line effect I prefer InkOn3’s Fade-Out ink. There is a digital version of this stamp available in Rachelle’s shop here as well.

There is no audio for this and as it’s pretty quick to colour it up. The original, unedited, filming took 20minutes and the finished video is on less than 12 minutes.

If you’d rather view the video directly on YouTube, click here.

I filmed colouring up this one the other day, the image I used for the card below. As you can see, the image in the video isn’t identical. This is because there was something wrong with what I had filmed so I had to film it again. Either way, here is a card sample of what you can make with this kind of coloured image.

The colours used for this video are: (skin) E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) YR31, E21, E23, E25 (purple) RV91, RV93, RV95 (grey/white) W0, W1, W3 (yellow) YR31, YR21, YR23, E35 + Copic Multiliner 0.1 in cool grey + Sakura GellyRoll 0.8 in white

Polkadoodles frosty smiles New Friends

We have had such a great winter so far this year. It started snowing right before new years and yesterday it snowed loads! Unfortunately it’s been replaced by rain today. I hope it doesn’t all rain away. White and pretty beats grey and wet any day at this time of year!

So today’s card had to be another winter themed one! I’ve used one of the newer Polkadoodles stamps again. It’s called Frosty Winter Smiles – New Friends. This time I’ve opted for a pink card, and I coloured up the stamp in no-lines again. The main background paper is from the Blushing Blooms paper pad. For decorations I’ve made a cluster with various die cuts using scrap paper I’ve had laying around as well as more from the Blushing Blooms pad. A simple sentiment to kick start the Christmas cards for next winter and some enamel dots finishes off the look.

I’ve taken another photo of the card as well.

Copics used: T0, T1, T3, B0000, BG000, BV20, BV23, BV0000, BV00, BV02, BV04, W7, E23, E25, E29, YR31, YR23, E35, R81, RV32, RV34, RV95

LotV 3 little reindeer

The new Lili of the Valley release is due on Wednesday and it’s full of adorable little Christmas stamps as well as other fun things such as background papers. This time the stamps will be available as both .png and in lighter colours so you can colour them in no-lines without it being too fiddly. Great, right?

I wanted to make a slimline card using the three little reindeer. I coloured them up in no-lines and once it was pretty much all done, I decided that I wanted to use a printed sentiment to go with. I had already made the card front double thickness and painted white around the edge as well as finished colouring up the image so I was prepared for the printing to go bad. In fact I just did a quick eye measurement for the positioning of the sentiment as I thought it would just ruin what I’d made. (It’s only paper, right, so have to give it a go anyway, haha.) It worked out perfectly and the placement looks like it was done a lot more carefully than it was! I definitely don’t recommend doing it this way, though, haha!

The sentiment is from the Christmas Circular and more sentiments. I removed the word Christmas to make room for my chipboard and then moved the two snowflakes a little bit further down. I also drew in a few extra stars to make them cover more of the card panel. Finally I glued on three enamel stars. Let’s have a close-up of it.

And a close-up of the reindeer. You can see what colours I used below.

Copics used: E41, E42, E43, E44, YG93, YG95, YG97, YG99, R24, R27, R29, R59, R89, BG93, BG96, BG99, C0, C1, C2, YR23, YR31, E34, RV10, RV32, RV34, E70, E71, E74, E77, N9, W0, W1, W3

Massive birthday cake

Another one of the stamps I’ve coloured up for the 30 day colouring challenge, this time one of the spring ones, was this adorable teddy bear with his massive birthday cake. The stamp is by Dreamland Crafts and I’ve used Ink On 3’s fade-out ink for the no-lines effect.

I used a green card base along with green ink on the sentiment from Mathia Design

Bunch of tulips

For my birthday I got loads of stamps from Power Poppy and this is one of them. I opted for a no-lines version again and colours I very rarely use and probably haven’t used together before.

The dies are by MFT Stamps and Pinkfresh.
