Primrose




Hi everyone!

 I just want to share this card I made. I made it for a friend who’s getting hopefully her last chemotherapy against her breastcancer. I want to let her know that I still think of her and encourage her. She was so strong and did it so well.


I coloured this sweet and beautiful image using my Copic markers but I’ve added some details with pencils too. Here are the Copic markers I’ve used:
  • skin: E04, E13, E11, E00, E000
  • hair: Y21, E59, E37, E35, YR23
  • red: R59, R46, R24, R22
  • green: G28, YG17, YG13, Yg11
  • orange: Y35, Y38, YR04, YR07
  • background: E41, E40
  • blue: B39, B36, B34, B32


I also added a sentiment stamp in the banner.

Furry Angels

foto van Kim Reid.
Hi everyone!
Welcome to Day TWO of our January Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
We all have lost furry friends over the years and know friends and family who have also been through such a devastating ordeal. It's hard to know what to do in these situations but I think sending a sweet handmade creation with warm thoughts and hugs is so helpful.
And so we have the new FURRY ANGELS stamp set!

And here's the card I've created using the new stampset. I sponged some clouds using a die from Lawn Fawn and some Distress Ink. The sentiment is embossed with white Wow! embossingpowder on black cardstock. Some sequins completes the card.

I've coloured this beautiful dog with my Copic markers.
Here are the colours I've used:
fur: E29, E25, E23, E21
wings: C3, C1, C0
blue collar: B18, B05, B02, B00

Classy Olivia

Hi everyone!
I wish you a very happy New Year, may all your dreams come true! I just want to show you the card I’ve created for the new skin challenge. I know it’s hard sometimes but I have 1 big tip for you all: clean your markers before you start to colour! It depends from your colourcombination, but my E11, E04 or E13 are starting to be tacky really fast.  Rub on your nibs with some alcohol and make sure your marker contains enough ink.
For this card I’ve used  the gorgeous new Classy Olivia Digi Stamp. She was awesome to colour! She’s one of the new teen stamps, so I decided to use some trendy haircolours: a greyish brown and a purple ombre and purple lips.
Here are all the Copic colours I’ve used to colour her up:
  • skin: E04, E13, E11, E00, E000
  • hair: E79, E77, E74, E71, V28, V25, V22, V20
  • dress: BG78, BG18, BG13, BG11, BG10
  • purple: V09, V17, V15, V12
  • eyes: YG67, YG63, YG61, YG11

Let your dreams take flight

Hi everyone!

I just want to wish you a very happy New Year!

Today we're kicking off the Krafty year with a new challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. The theme of this week is "Sentiment", so you just create a card using a sentiment.


I sponged paper with Distress Ink, splattered some water on it and stamped with some small daubers white ink on it.
When it was dry I stamped the sentiment and the butterflies from the stampset "Butterfly Dreams" by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. I've glued it to a black cardbase, added some sequins and the card was finished.


Hope you'll find some time to play along!

Ginger castle


Hi everyone!
 Did you already see the new and huge Candyworld release at Make it Crafty? There’s so much to choose from and the images are awesome! You can your own candybackgrounds or you can play with the original backgrounds. For my card today, I’ve used the Ginger Castle Digi Stamp but I cropped the image to the front part of the castle. Isn’t this fun?

I think this is just the perfect image for on a Christmascard, I love it so much! I printed the image a bit lighter and softer than black, so you don’t get the hard black lines. I also added the Christmas word chipboard and stamped the wishes word on the bottom.
Here are the Copic colours I’ve used:
  • Sky: B00, B000/ C3, C1, C0
  • grass: G28, YG09, YG06, YG03, YG00, YG11
  • orange: E08, YR07, YR04, Y38, Y35
  • pink: RV06, RV04, RV02, RV000, RV32
  • blue: B05, B02, B00
  • yellow: Y38, Y17, Y15, Y11
  • red: E29, R46, R24, R22
  • brown: E59, E37, E35, E33, E31
  • white: C3, C1, C0

Winter stella shadow box



Hi everyone!
Crafty Gal Deborah here for you today. I had the Circle Shadow Box Chipboard set laying around here for a while and I didn’t do anything with it before and now I wanted to give it a try. I went to our local craftstore and bought some white gesso and there I saw a gorgeous metallic paint. And the idea was made!

I glued the shadow box together and painted it 2 times with the white gesso then I painted 3 layers of the metallic paint, so it was nice and smooth. Believe me, it’s so much more prettier in real life, it’s so hard to make a good picture of something that’s so shiny. I also used some star snowflake chipboard and coated it whit Glossy Accents and sprinkled some glitter on it, I did the same with the Christmas word chipboard. The background is a piece of design paper.
I’ve used my Copic markers to colour Winter Stella Digi Stamp, here are the colours:
  • skin: E04, E11, E00, E000
  • hair: E31, E59, E37, E35
  • pink: R89, R39, R85, R83, R81
  • green: G28,  G46, G43, G40
  • white: C5, C3, C1, C0
  • blue: B39, B36, B34, B32
