The card is simple where the card base (from MFT Stamps) is matching the frosting and the background paper (also MFT Stamps) is matching the coloured image as well. A simple embossed Norwegian sentiment (Mathia Design) and a few matching enamel dots finished off the card this time.
It’s time for another Polkadoodles project today. As March is coming to an end, spring is just around the corner most places where it hasn’t quite reached it. Where I live, the last bit of snow melted away last week and the weather is warming up nicely.
My card for you today is also spring themed and I’ve used the clear stamp Marigold Darling Buds. It’s been coloured up using Copic markers. I opted for a peach colour which matches the paper in the Soft & Scrumptious craft paper collection quite well, I think. I cut out a panel from the peach background with the green hearts and then cut out the coloured image in a smaller size before attaching it using foam tape. A simple sentiment to bring in more of the hints of green and a few peach coloured enamel dots finished off the card.
Copics: YR00, R12, YR0, R22, G40, G43, G46, YG67, E00, E02, E13, E15, E53, E25, E59, E49
My Rachelle Anne Miller DT-project this month is a little delayed as I had to get a new printer before I could colour up my chosen image. I picked Animal Balloons. What I decided to do for this one was to first mirror the digital stamp and then copy some of Rachelle’s balloons to add three more than what was in the original image. More balloons, more fun!
A bit of foam tape here and there, some clouds, a sentiment strip and a few enamel dots and my simple card was done.
I have a new colouring video up on my YouTube channel today where I have coloured up one of the new Lili of the Valley stamps that is released today. It is a new line, Grace, and the stamp is called Love. You can find the stamp here. As these are digital stamps you can resize them (do make sure it’s proportional, though) to whichever size you fancy. For a limited time they are also available to pre-order as clear stamps. For the video I’ve used the the pencil sketch version of the stamp and printed it in faint lines to get a no-line effect.
There is no audio for this and as it’s pretty quick to colour it up, the video is only 10 minutes long, which is edited down and sped up a little from the 17 minutes it took me to colour her up.

I have not made the card with this image yet, but I plan to have it done and posted up on the blog next week.

So far this year I’ve mostly been colouring up flowers. I got a gift certificate for my birthday last year at Power Poppy and it’s only now I’ve had time to sit down and colour up a few of them. Today’s card is made using one of these stamps. A little bit of experimenting with colours and keeping the card simple, as usual, is basically the recipe for this card.
The cardstock and rectangular die are both by MFT Stamps. I’ve used a sentiment from a collaboration between Hero Arts and Gina K with one of the lovely Pinkfresh inks. I’ve taken two photos again today, so here is the other one as well:
