Birthday {Mo’s Dream Team}

Hi everyone! We’ve reached Wednesday, you know what that means. It’s Mo Manning day!!! Yay!

This time I chose Birthday Fairy Lee and colored her up in yummy, summery colors. I found some scraps of patterned papers that matched and turned all of it into a fairly clean and simple card.

I diecut the banners, as well as the main panel, using dies from My Favorite Things. MFT dies are my favorite, they’re so versatile. I glued part of a doily underneath my banners and stamped a Norsk Stempelblad AS sentiment on the biggest one (It says “BIRTHDAY – a special day that brings together people you love” in Norwegian).

I used a small star punch for my yellow stars, and added a few veneer ones from Studio Calico to put something on the front that wasn’t made from paper. I added a couple of enamel dots to finish it off, simply because the pink color matched everything else perfectly.

I put a tiny cluster on the inside. Another banner diecut using an MFT die, another veneer star and also a polaroid frame, diecut with another MFT die – told you they’re my favorite. A couple of punched little pink hearts and another Norsk Stempelblad AS sentiment (Happiness is being one year older),  and my card was done.

You’re the best {Mo’s Dream Team}

Hi everyone. I’ve got another simple card with a Mo Manning cutie today – it is Wednesday, after all. This time I chose Baby Fairy Amanita and went with colors that are totally not me. I never do reds or yellows, and this card’s got both. I colored my fairy, die cut her with a faux stitch die from My Favorite Things and put her on a red card base. I found some scraps of My Mind’s Eye patterned paper that fit well with my colors and embellished very sparingly. I wanted to embellish the inside, too, but make it very simple. I took the diecut frame left from the banner on the front and glued it to my white cardstock before stamping a sentiment in red. I diecut a small yellow patterned paper circle for an extra bit of detail, and that’s it.

Du har jo bursdag! {Ett trykk}{Mo’s Dream Team}

Hei og hopp! Dagens kort er publisert i juninummeret av Ett trykk. Vi hadde en artikkel med fokus på flere måter å bruke blonder på, og jeg brukte blonden på kortet mitt som en slags ramme bak motivet mitt.

Jeg fargela Bella Birthday fra Mo Manning i en farge som matchet blonden min, stanset ut formen på kortet med en die fra GoKreate og pyntet med ark fra Maja Design og Pion Design.

I tillegg til arkene har jeg brukt en blanding av blomster fra Wild Orchid Crafts og Papirdesign. Jeg har også stukket inn noen grønne blader her og der.

På innsiden har jeg brukt litt andre ark. Det rosa er et gammelt et fra den gangen arkene fra Maja Design var ensidige og hadde litt skinn Det gule er fra Coffee in the Arbour-kolleksjonen og det grønne er et veldig tynt ensidig ark av ukjent produsent. Teksten fra B03-platen til Norsk Stempelblad AS er stemplet med Memento Bamboo Leaves, og spruten rundt er stemplet med Splash-stempelet til Inkido med Distress Ink Mustard Seed. Scallopsirkelen er laget med en die fra Papirdesign.

Baksiden har nok et NSB-stempel, og også her har jeg pyntet veldig enkelt med blomster og blader.

Enjoy your day {Mo’s Dream Team}

Hi everyone! Another Wednesday has come around, which means another creation with a Mo Manning image around here. This time I went to town with reds, not a color I use a whole lot. I chose Bake Me a Cake, she’s kind of adorable stirring her batter in that big bowl.

I colored her with my Copics and cut my panel down. I wanted to use some scraps of Maja Design patterned paper, so I glued the plaid one and a tiny sliver of red right next to it before putting my panel on foam tape and gluing it to the front of my card.

I stamped and heat embossed a birthday sentiment on a 1″ circle I made from the patterned paper, and glued it to my panel with a pebble on top.

The pebble adds a little bit of shine to an otherwise simple card. So do the enamel dots I put on the left.

A little bit of rain… {Mo’s Dream Team}

… never hurt anyone. We’ve had stable, dry, unseasonally hot weather for weeks, so when it started raining over the weekend it was most welcome. Hopefully the forest fire danger is reduced, and crops will survive, I’m crossing my fingers. I decided that Mo Manning’s Avril was perfect for a bit of rainy day weather coloring.

I printed her in 10 per cent opacity from Photoshop to color her in no lines, I haven’t done that in a while, and decided that she was perfect for it.

I printed a Vivian Greene quote next to her and colored her up with Copics. The majority of the colors I already had lying on my desk from another image I colored the previous day, so I made things easy for myself.

I cut down 1/8″ in both directions and glued her straight onto a cardbase made from Papertrey Ink Melon Berry cardstock. I added Pretty Pink Posh sequins in various sizes around my sentiment, and that’s the finished card – pretty simple, keeping most of the focus on that no line coloring.

Make a Wish {Mo’s Dream Team}

Hi everyone! Another Wednesday, and you know what that means – it’s Mo Manning day. I’ve colored up the adorable Make a Wish image for my card today. I made it very simple, so there’s not too much on the card to distract from the image.

I colored her up with my Copics in mainly RVs ang BGs. I diecut her with a stitched rectangle die from the Stitched Rectangles STAX Set 2 from My Favorite Things – try saying that ten times fast. I put her on lots of foam tape to a panel of Ocean Tides cardstock from Papertrey Ink, diecut with another stitched rectangle die from MFT, this time from Set 1. I added that to a Plum Pudding cardbase.

I tend to make my cards simple with clusters of embellishments. This card is no exception. I dug through my patterned paper scraps and found some papers that matched my cardstock pretty well. The light teal is from My Mind’s Eye, the dark teal is from Pion Design, and the purple is from Papirdesign.

I also added a doily. Well, half a doily, another signature of mine. I diecut my teal banners with a couple of My Favorite Things dies, and glued a little vine from Snip Art on top. This chipboard piece is very delicate, so I used spray adhesive on the back of it to avoid having to deal with liquid glue oosing out the sides. I added my diecut heart with some liquid glue, put a layer of Wink of Stella on top, and then Glossy Accents on top of that.

Here you can see the Glossy Accents on the heart heaps better. I also added Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents on the heart on her shirt.

Fore! {Mo’s Dream Team}

Another Wednesday, and another Dream Team contribution for Mo Manning. This time I’ve made a birthday card for an avid golfer. What image would be better than Big Guy Golfing?

I found some scraps of mostly green patterned paper from Maja Design. I had no idea that the club he plays at is named Green Joy, so that was pure luck. I added his age on a flag, thought it was fitting. Not that there’s 50 holes on a course (that much I know), but I’m guessing he gets it anyway.

I colored up my golfer to fit my papers and added a bit of green below his feet and the ball. I love his tongue sticking out, he’s SO focused on making that put!

I added a little cluster of banners in the lower left corner, with a sentiment on one of them. It says “a man at his best age” in Norwegian. I stamped it in Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate ink and added a few veneer stars from Studio Calico as accents.

The inside basically has the same design. I made a pocket for some cash on the left side, with a diecut sentiment and some more stars.

The back is also pretty simple, the first line of a Norwegian birthday song stamped in the same dark brown color that I used for the sentiment on the front of the card. I scattered a few stars here, as well.
