I’ve finally finished the card I made with the Pinkfresh Studio flowers I coloured up with my Prismacolor pencils for my video back in August: see it here. I’ve drawn a border around the coloured panel and stamped a birthday greeting from Papertrey Ink. A few sequins and then some die cut butterflies from La-La Land Crafts made up the rest of the card.
Alex Syberia Fabulous Floral
Today marks the March release for Alex Syberia and I’ve been invited along as a guest designer! The stamp I chose for my Instagram Hop post is called Fabulous Floral and is designed to fit a slimline card. I decided to keep it as a slimline and opted for a light peach shade for all the flowers. The black cardstock framed it in nicely. I added a few black dots to the white space, a sentiment and then a handful of transparent sequins as embellishments.
I found a sentiment in my stamp collection that fit perfectly in both size and text. It’s from a collab set between GinaK Design and Hero Arts.
Copics used is YR00, R12, YR0, R22, R43, E44, E79
Sweet celebration slimline
I’ve finally gotten around to making another slimline card! I’ve coloured up stamps from MFT Stamps and then I used the filmstrip die from Whimsy Stamps (aff. link) for the layout. The little stamps fit perfectly into those squares! I quickly made two sentiments on the computer, as I didn’t have what I wanted at hand, and then coupled it with a word die also from MFT Stamps. A few enamel dots from Altenew and voila! Card done!
This card has been entered into the following challenge:
Whimsy wee kitty in flower pot
Time to break up all the Christmas posts with something non-Christmassy! I’ve used a stamp from the Wee Stamps collection at Whimsy Stamps called Sweet Kitties and made a shabby slimline card. It is a no-line version and I’ve used my Copic markers as usual.
I’ve used scraps from a few different background papers which I have torn at the top edge instead of cutting, added some lace, a doily, embossed on some frantage and glued on some sequins. The sentiment is a Norwegian text stamp (which says Happy Birthday) embossed onto dark pink cardstock and then die cut using the Quick Strips die set.
Copics used: N0, N1, N2, N3, W0, W2, YR20, YR31, YR23, YR27, E08, E70, E71, E74, RV10, RV91, RV93, RV32, RV34
Whimsy bunny Row
For Whimsy Stamps‘ December release I’ve made a slimline card using the Christmas Bunny Row extended stamp. This extended version is perfect for a slimline card. They do have one with fewer bunnies as well (here). I’ve kept it super simple and just coloured it up, embossed first with white embossing powder and then some white frantage to get some bigger chunks as well. The coloured panel was added to the card base using foam tape.
Copics used: W0, W1, W3, N0, N1, N3, YG61, YG63, YG67, E41, E42, E43, E44, B0000, BG000, BV20, BV23, V000, BV000, BV01, BV02, R24, R59
