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

Blossoming tree

Simon Say Stamp has some pretty cool stamps and dies of their own brand, and this is one of those in my opinion. I love using this tree for sympathy cards as I can colour the blooms in whichever colour suits my mood. This time I opted for orange, which I very rarely do. I think it works well.

I used a sentiment stamp from Mathia Design which means “thinking of you” together with dies from MFT Stamps and La-La Land Crafts, and some enamel dots by Altenew.

Kort- og fargeleggingskurs

This card is made using a floral stamp from MFT stamps, some Rayher dies and rhinestones. The rest of this post will be in Norwegian with information about a course I will be having in Oslo, Norway, in January.

Da kan jeg endelig dele at jeg skal holde kurs på Hobbykunst i januar. Her skal vi lage et enkelt blomsterkort hvor vi fargelegger motivet selv. Det kommer til å være valgmuligheter som går på både farge, og noe ulik utforming av dette enkle kortet. Du kan velge mellom denne oransje, en lilla eller en rosa fargekombinasjon. Kortet kan brukes i ulike sammenhenger. Kurset er 18.januar i Hobbykunst sitt lokale på Karihaugen i Oslo. Du finner all informasjon her, og så er det bare å sende meg, eller Hobbykunst, en melding on det er noen spørsmål.

PS. Det er også planlagt flere kurs utover. Mer informasjon om disse kommer over nyttår.

I had a request for a couple of baby cards recently so of course I had to use Lili of the Valley images for them! They have such a wide range of brilliant baby stamps and they’ve been my favourite long before I got on the DT! I was asked to avoid the traditional girly pinks so I actually decided to give orange a go for a baby card. I think it worked really well and despite my dislike for orange I quite like this. I guess orange is growing on me!

I’ve used various Maja Design papers, my favourite lace and a Make it Crafty chipboard.

Copics used: W0, W1, W3, W5, YG13, YG67, YR07, YR20, YR21, YR23, E41, E42, E43, N0, N1, N3

YNS: Happy Brrr-thday

It is time for another post as a guest designer for Your Next Stamp. As I wrote in my first post, I’m going to make all three projects in ways that are, at least in my opinion, rather typical for me. So this one is with a clean and simple style that includes smaller stamps, distress oxide ink and bright colours. I have in fact made two matching cards. The first one has a darker grey background.

The second card I made with this stamp set has a lighter coloured grey background and the distressed background goes vertically across the middle.

Copics used: N0, N1, N3, N5, N7, RV00, RV09, RV52, RV55, RV69, Y11, Y13, Y38, YR09, E41, E42, E43, E44
