Lotv Penguin family

I have another card to share with that I made with one of the new digital stamps available at Lili of the Valley. The stamp is called Penguin Family. I opted for something different this time and coloured in a semi-circular background behind the penguins with a hard edge to said semi-circle.

The card itself is kept simple by using stitched rectangle die for the panel and then I added some twine and one of the Christmas Topper sentiments. I cut out the sentiment by hand and then made a whole in it before attaching it to the twine. The whole coloured panel with the twine was put on a red card base.

Copics used: E41, E42, E43, BG90, BG93, BG96, BG99, N0, N1, N3, N5, N7, N9, R32, R35, R37, R39, YR04, YR09, aaaand I admit I don’t remember the combo for the sky… it might have been BG10, B000, B91, B93.

Happy Christmas penguin

Another simple Christmas card with a little penguin. This time the penguin is from MFT Stamps and I’ve coloured it up with Copic. I did a funky cut of a paper by Panduro and glued some big snowflakes on top of it. A chipboard sentiment with a printed sentiment (because I have somehow managed to misplace my heating gun…) as well as some sequins finished off the card.

Bold statement flowers

I absolutely love the Statement Flowers, is by ALTENEW. It’s not that often I take time to colour up in no-lines, but so far I’ve only done just that with this stamp. I use the fade-out ink by InkOn3 because it’s awesome. This time I opted for a lot bolder colours by using red. I’ve hand cut the flower after colouring it up.

The card itself is made by die cutting the Trellis die in white and gluing it back onto white cardstock. The hello die is also by Altenew and so are the green enamel dots which are part of the Green Fields set. Lastly I embossed, in gold, a sentiment from Mathia Design.

Let’s have a proper close-up as well for a change.

Copics used: R32, R35, R37, R39, R89, N3, N5, N7, N9, G40, YG61, G82, G94, BG99

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 poppy

I don’t often play with panel dies, but when I saw this Trellis one from Altenew I knew I had to have it. It’s been die cut as white card stock and then I used my Distress Ink (one of the few I have that’s not Oxide) in the colour Peeled Paint and deliberately avoided getting it even. As the background behind it, I used one of the new watercolour background panels from Lili of the Valley. Then I cut the Trellis die cut apart so that I only kept about 2/3 of it. The Paint-a-Flower Poppy has been coloured with my Copic markers and then cut out by hand. After I glued it onto the background and trellis, I used one of my other Copic marker colours to draw in some dots in a colour to match the distress. The Happy Birthday sentiment is a part of the Paint-a-Flower Poppy set, whereas “dearest friend” is off the Statement Flowers set and I used two different colours from the Zesty Limes ink cubes set. A few transparent drops and voila, card done!
