Party turtle

I bought this Neat & Tangled stamp set quite a while ago, but I never really got around to using it. For one of the colouring challenges earlier this year, I finally got around to colouring up one of the stamps; this awesome party snail. I opted for no-lines for a change and love how it turned out. As he’s quite small, I made a bigger cluster of scrap papers in the corner to go with. It’s mostly scraps from Maja Design and then some random card stock. The sentiment stamp means “congratulations” and is by Mathia Design.

Uptown party

This stamp must be one of the stamps I have used the most. It is by Stamping Bella. I’ve used washi tape to make the background behind the girls. It is by Altenew. The stamp is coloured up with Copic Marker and I added the glitter effect to the white dress, but went without the white gelly roll for the red dress for a bit of a different effect. I then cut the panel to the right size and drew in a border around the edge.

The sentiment is in Norwegian and means “to a wonderful friend like you” and is by Mathia Design.

Birthday wishes (og nytt kurs)

This weekend I’ve been busy with loads of visitors, but still had time to prepare a little for the next colouring class I’ll be having in March. This time it’s all about glitter and Stamping Bella.

Her er et av eksempelkortene til kurset jeg skal ha hos Hobbykunst i Oslo 14. mars. Denne gangen er det å fargelegge glittereffekt som er i fokus og motivet vi skal bruke er dette fra Stamping Bella. Du finner mer info og påmelding hos Hobbykunst. Fargene man kan velge mellom denne gangen er på kjolene: rød, hvit, turkis og svart.

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

Let’s party!

Today marks the start of my week of blogging for Huldra Designstudio and for the first project I’ve combined it with a Stamping Bella party stamp. The text stamps are all from Huldra. I have kept it simple by only using colour on the stamped image and the rest is black and white with a touch of glitter. It’s a party after all!

I dag er første dagen i Huldra Designstudiouka mi og til det første prosjektet har jeg kombinert et Stamping Bella stempel med tekststempel fra Huldra. Jeg har gjort det enkelt og kun brukt farger på motivet, resten er i sort/hvit med litt glitter. Det er jo party!

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (brown hair) E21, E25, E27, E29, (black hair) BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, and if I can find my cheat note then I’ll add the pink and blue.. *sigh*, if you’d really like to know, just post a comment and I’ll try to remake the combination if I can’t find the note!
