Copic Challenge 31

Copic Challenge 31 is based on autumn colours, the selection of colours to use were YR68, G94 and Y38, but as usual I don’t have them! Hopefully I will get the other two sets soon. So I have used YR04, G21, Y21, E33 and E35 to use for my design.
Only thing is this morning I felt very sad, a lady had ran over a cat and I helped her to take it to the vets, but sadly it did not survive. Being an animal lover its still upsetting, even though it’s not your own pet, and like I said to the lady, we stayed with him and tried to do the best we could. My thoughts go out to the cat’s owner, I hope I do not upset any animal lovers by putting this on my blog.

Many thanks for looking.

Challenge Penny Black 66 and Pollycraft 24

This week I am entering one card for two challenges, Penny Black Sketch 66 set out by Domi and Pollycraft Challenge 24 is to use black/white and one other colour. So I thought this was a great chance to do these challenges as it’s my daughter birthday soon and she loves these colours but most of all purple is her favourite. I have used Bazzil Bling card stock, cricut machine for cutting out the fancy background shapes, copic pens Roo V17 100, flowers and ribbon I found amongst my stash.

Many thanks for looking.

Copic Challenge 28

Copic Challenge 28 was to use E47, BG23, R85 but I only had one of these colours which is E47 so I also used B12,B23 and R27. I had to make another male birthday card so again I used the bear stamp but this time he is a golfer, the bear is such a versatile stamp this is why I enjoy using it.

Many thanks for looking.

Papertake Sketch 22

For the Papertake Sketch 22, I have followed this sketch to design a birthday card for my husband’s mate who is also a volunteer at the same heritage railway. This time I made the bear out to be a signalman, I added the waistcoat stamp and modified the hat to suit it. I coloured the stamped images using copic pens, YG63, G21, BV23, C7 and R11.

Many thanks for looking.

Challenge 26

I have been asked to make a 1st birthday card, so I have designed it so I can enter Copic Challenge 26.
The copic pens I used are BG05,B05,R59,G14,G99,R00 which where great colours to work with as the card is for a boy. The bear and balloons image is from Daisy & Dandelion stamps and I have coloured the wood number 1 with the coordinating copic pen. To make this is even more special I have continued to decorate the inside, to create a memorable card.

Many thanks for looking.

Challenge #40



Whiff of Joy Challenge #40, was to use any Whiff of Joy stamp and follow a sketch set out by Donalda. I was asked to make an anniversary card for a friend, so this is the card I have made for this challenge. I used sitting summer Willow stamp, Oakley and the bench stamp is from magnolia, I have coloured the images with copic pens using (C1,C3,RV21,RV23,Y11,E31,E35,R00). The cardstock is The Luxury Stack by DCWV, and pink and brown pearlescent card. I used my cricut machine for the matting and layering shapes and added punched out hearts. I made some roses out of matching ribbon and finally I attached a silver heart charm, and continued the theme to the inside of the card.

Thank you for looking.

Copic Challenge 16

It’s my granddaughter’s 1st birthday this Friday and this is the card I have made for her and entered it in the Copic challenge 16. I did not have the colours they suggested, so the ones I used to colour the magnolia image were similar which were RV13, RV23, Y02, Y11, E31, E35 and E21. The cardstock is pink bazzil and I found a piece of two toned patterned card, I have also used pink and yellow ribbon and fixed them together. I used my cricut machine to cut out the frames for matting and laying the image and for the wording. To finish the card I have added silver charms, and yellow brads in the middle of the flowers.

Thank you for looking.
