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.

Stamping bella donuts (og kurs)

(Kursinfo lenger ned.) What a fun stamp to colour up! This yummy stamp is by Stamping Bella and I love how she is peeking up over the pile of donuts as she’s grabbing the top one! I kept the card simple by putting it off-centre on the purple card stock. I cut out the letters h, e and i using a MFT die (the word hei means hello) and then embossed a Mathia Design stamp onto black card stock to put on top. A few enamel dots and my card was done!

Jeg skal ha kurs i fargelegging av dette motivet Hobbykunst i Oslo 27. juni. For mer informasjon og påmelding klikk her.

Bundle of joy

Baby cards are fun to make and I think I’ve made more the past year than all the previous years I’ve been card making added up. I wonder why, haha! I do like making them in the non-traditional blue and pinks as well, and this one in turquoise and purple is amongst my favourites already. The adorable stamp is by Stamping Bella, the background paper is by Lawn Fawn and the chipboard was from Make It Crafty.

Snowdrops

Well, the past week flew by quickly! With everything happening at the moment I know quite a few have more time at home regardless of whether they like it or not. I am currently not amongst those, but who knows when that might change. Anyway, because of this I will try to make a couple of colouring videos over the next week to help the colourists out there make time pass a bit quicker and who knows, maybe there are others who might like to try colouring, too.

But for now I will settle with showing you my most recent card. I used a Stamping Bella stamp, and the numbers are made with a MFT Stamps die. The papers are primarily Reprint and Maja Design.

This card has multiple folds, and to see that it needs to be untied.

It has a few folds inside for various content. I’ve made a gift card pocket and written the text from a birthday song on two of the pages inside

And this is how it looks if you look down at it from above.

The blue copics are from the B20s series. The greens are also 20s and the greys are Ns.

New Norwegian stamp brand

Last week a new Norwegian stamp brand appeared on the market here in Norway: Mathia design. Of course I had to use the stamps as soon as I got them! Here I’ve embossed the background stamp and used one of the text stamps. The coloured image is a Stamping Bella stamp and will be used in a class I’ll be teaching at Hobbykunst in Oslo in the middle of March.
