Gratulerer med dagen {Hobbykunst}

Hi, everyone! I have a super simple card to share today, featuring patterned paper from a new (to me) company.

This beautiful floral piece is part of a 12×12″ patterned paper from P13, which is a Polish brand. I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised by the quality. I find that most patterned papers are very thin, but this is right up there with Maja Design, which has long been a favorite of mine because of their colors and their quality. I didn’t want to do too much to this, so I used a slimline die from Pinkfresh Studio to diecut the panel.

I used a die from Papirdesign to diecut my word from several pieces of white cardstock that I stacked together. I added some Copic coloring with my RV95 to the top diecut, then put a sticker (also from Papirdesign) on some foam tape and added it below the word, before finishing off with a couple of enamel dots. Super simple, right?

Merry… penguins? {Mo’s Dream Team}

Hi, everyone!

Another Wednesday, and another Mo Manning creation around here. This time I’ve made a slimline card featuring the 3 Penguin Chicks stamp set, which is one of the newer ones, and those penguins are a must have, don’t you think? Slimline cards are tricky to photograph, and I need heaps of practice, but I did my best. After printing and die cutting my image, I went in with mostly gray Copics and colored in my little penguins. Pat has colored up the sample in the store, and while hers is light grey on the bodies of the penguins, I wanted to create a really textured look on mine, so these are a lot darker.

I used a little bit of color for their cheeks, the snowballs and also the sky around them, but that was it. I stamped a Norsk Stempelblad AS Christmas sentiment onto one of the snowballs using Papertrey Ink Blueberry Sky ink and glued my panel onto a card base of that same Blueberry Sky color. I finished my card by adding a few snowdrift sprinkles from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards.

Like I said, I mostly used grays for this image. Here are most of the colors I used. I also used BG71, which is a color I’ve made myself.
