My Aunty's 60th birthday card

My Mum requested a birthday card for her sister, who turns 60 in January.  I started with some numeral stamps I had and coloured the '60' in with my copic markers YG61, YG63 and YG67. Then with my multiliner I created the stitched look around the edge and added some button brads to give it a sewn homemade kind of look.

The papers I used were Kaiser 6 1/2" paper pad Porcelain Rose teamed with Stampin' Up! Poppy Parade and Garden Green.  Then finished off with some rhinestones and flowers.


The sewing cushion is coloured with copic markers also using the same YG pens as the 60, then R02, R05, R08, E40, E41 & E42.  Placed some pearls as pin nibs and used a silver gel pen to represent the colour of the needles and pins.

Very pleased with end result.

Frosty Snowflakes

Hi everyone!  I've been creating today with paints and copics.  I recently purchased the Craft Stamper magazine January 2014 issue from my local scrapbook store, scrapbook fantasy, and immediately feel in love with the cover.

So thanks to an Ombre colouring technique by Christine Dark, I created my own version with acrylic paints in my art journal with a little misting.

I used my copic markers to colour the 'Gorjuss Urban Stamp - I Love You Little Rabbit'.

Here are the copic colours I used:-

Skin - E50, E51, E53, E13, R21, R43
Hair - YR21, YR24, YR27, E15, E17
Dress - B21, B24, B26, B29, BV04, BV08
Greys - C00, C0, C1, C3, C5, W0, W2, W4, W6, W9, N7, N10, 110, 0

I had so much fun creating this and am please with the finished project.
Thanks again to Christine Dark.

Time to share some cards I've been working on for display in my local scrapbooking store, 'Scrapbook Fantasies', where I am the copic designer for the store.  I made four cards in total using the new range from Kaiser called 'Key to my Heart'.  I have used the stamp set, die cut shapes and 6 1/2 " paper pad.  Also managed to create inserts for all of the cards, which I will shall as well.

Three of the cards are La La Land stamps and the fourth is a Sweet Pea Stamps image called 'Goth Guy' which I really love this image.
