Crafty Meraki – Sympathy rose

For today’s card, as my Crafty Meraki post of a the week, I’ve used Colorado Craft Company as my primary focus. The stamp is called Big & Bold Sympathy Rose. The stamp is quite large, so you need to cut it to make it fit on an A2 card. I opted for an angle a bit different to what is usual for this stamp and I picked some semi-random colours to colour it up. The flower is stamped with Ink On 3’s Fadeout ink.

As the stamp itself takes up so much space, I opted to leave the card reasonably simple. Just a bit of frantage over the coloured panel, a sentiment and some enamel dots in a match colour.

The sentiment is from MFT Stamps, the Smile Maker set, and is embossed in white on dark green card stock.

Copics used: R30, YR00, R12, R43, RV34, YG61, G43, G46, BG99

Polkadoodles beary great day

I’m back to share my second Polkadoodles project with using using the clear stamps set Beary Great Day. I asked three of the stamps together and coloured it up using Copic markers and faintly coloured lines. The sentiment is from the same set.

For the card itself I used two different pattered papers from the paper pad Blushing Blooms. The first is cut to fit the card front, and the second is slightly smaller, cut at an angle at the bottom and added with foam tape for some dimension.

Copics used: E41, E42, E43, E44, RV00, RV10, RV32, W0, W1, W2, W3, W5, W7, V91, V93, V95, YR20, YR23, E34, N0, N1, N3, N7

Best friends

Yet another clean and simple card today. I’ve coloured up a lot of Stamping Bella lately because of the next two colouring classes I’m planning to have at Hobbykunst in Oslo in March, so I used an entirely different stamp for this card. It’s another one of the images I coloured up in the previous 30 day colouring challenge and my pile of coloured images is now ready for another 30-day refill! The fade-out ink from Inkon3 is great, by the way! Opted for softer colours on the dress.

I’ve used Maja Design paper, an MFT Stamps rectangle die, Make it Crafty chipboard and Altenew enamel dots.

Colouring video: Make a wish

I finally have another colouring video for you! It is a Mo’s Digital Pencil stamp called Make A Wish and I have coloured it up in no-lines. To colour up in no-lines you can print out a digital stamp in really faint lines, or you can use a pale coloured ink (or stamp several times with a dark one without reapplying the ink) on a rubber or clear stamp. I used this to make a card a few months back, but there’s been so much going on that I’ve only just managed to get the video done! Better late than never, right?

There is no audio on this video. I will try to add that to my next one again, though.

Here is the card I made with the finished colouring.

Yesterday was Lili of the Valley‘s 15th birthday and that was celebrated with a brand new release!

I coloured it up in no-lines this time and kept it simple.
