RAM boy with dragon

I’m back with another card made for Rachelle Anne Miller’s Creative Studios today. For some reason I seem to enjoy colouring up these detailed stamps as small as possible and this card is no exception. I used boy and stuffed dragon for this card and kept it very simple. The photo doesn’t show it well, but I used a stencil to emboss the white panel. A simple “happy birthday” written in Norwegian on matching cardstock with a few enamel dots is all I needed for this card.

Copics used: BG70, BG10, BG11, BG15, BG18, BG78, B91, B93, B95, B97, BV23, BV25, BV29, Y32, Y35, Y38, E97, E08, E19, YR23, YR27, E00, E02, E13, E15,

Whimsy penguins with snowman

One of the great advantages of digital stamps is how you can split and resize and remove things to fit your project. That is what I’ve decided on this time. All of these penguins are part of the same digital stamp. The stamp is part of the new digital release at Whimsy Stamps and is called Penguins Build a Snowman.

I opted for a slimline card this time using the great slimline film strip die. I digitally cut the digital stamp into the sections I wanted and resized them accordingly so each would fit in one of the frames. Then I erased the lines that was a part of the other sections of the original image to make them look like stand alone stamps.

To finish it off I used an inverted colour version of Merry and Bright sentiment stamp and some sparkly enamel dots.

Copics used: N0, N1, N2, N3, N5, N7, N9, C0, C1, C2, B91, B93, B95, B97, B99, YR31, YR23, E34, E97, E41, E42, E43, RV10, RV32, RV34, BV23, BV25, BV29

Lotv bears building snowman

Lili of the Valley is working on yet another new Christmas release and it’s a great one! I simply had to colour up one of the stamps right away, with these bears building a snowman! Even though there is loads of white, I opted for a no-lines version of the stamp. Blue is my favourite colour for Christmas cards, so I suppose it was a bit of an obvious choice, but hey! When it looks great, why pick something else, right? hehehe

The decorations are kept simple with just a cluster of die cut scrap paper, some die cut snowflakes, one of Lili of the Valley’s own sentiments as well as some enamel dots.

And this marks the end of August. I am pleased I managed to do a card a day. There’ll be quite a few cards the next few months too, I am sure. Tomorrow is September, and I don’t think I am quite ready for autumn yet.

Copics used: C0, C1, C2, N0, N1, N3, N5, N7, E41, E42, E43, E44, E70, E71, E74, E77, B91, B93, B95, B97, YR23, YR31, E34, R81, R83

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.
