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

MFT Stamps – Sketch challenge no. 508

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.
