Blank: Copic farmyards

For the “colouring round objects” lesson in the Copic Jumpstart class, Sandy Allnock masked up a comical pile of vegetables and coloured them. The only vegetation in my stamp collection is floral, so I went further up the food chain and found these decidedly round farmyard animals and stacked those up instead. How: I hadn’t… Continue reading Blank: Copic farmyards

1st birthday: Pink and sparkly

How quickly time flies; a year has already passed since I was making a welcome card for baby Amelia. Of course, I forgot to put her birthday on my cards to-do list so I didn't get a reminder to start making this card — I normally give myself plenty of time to come up with card… Continue reading 1st birthday: Pink and sparkly

Card: Elephant footprints

What: Copic-coloured elephant with a homemade footprint stamp. Inspired by: Gerda Steiner’s 72H weekend challenge. How: The elephant digital stamp was printed on Copic-safe Neenah solar white card and coloured with Copic markers. The bottom edge was shaped using a border die. Then I realised that neither of the elephant stamp sets I own have… Continue reading Card: Elephant footprints

Blank card: Stinkin’ cute

What: A card with a similar layout to this has been in my Pinterest for a while — I really wanted to have another go at the split panel background (I did a simpler version for the wedding card that will be posted here after the wedding next week). It also gave me the opportunity… Continue reading Blank card: Stinkin’ cute
