Pink circle card!

2017-09-17 19:41 | 2 kommentarer


Today I share a card, using a stamp I have used many times before, Uptown Girls "Victoria and Juliette" from Stampingbella. And I thought I´d share my work progress when making this card!


This was actually my coloring from day 14 of the Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge, I was really pleased with how the folds on their dresses turned out so I decided to keep going and make a card out of my coloring! My idea for this card was to incorporate a circle...


At first I wasn´t sure if I was even going to keep their legs, but I decided to
keep going and color them!


I stamped the image again, this time on masking paper, to create a mask, but without their legs as I was putting the circle behind their torsos. I then cut out a circle using masking paper. 


Using Distress Inks I blended my circle, darker behind the girls and lighter
towards the edge of the circle.


As I didn´t cut every detail out in my masking paper, some areas were left white...


...I then filled in these white areas with Copic markers in similar colors!


I am really happy that I decide to save their legs!


Thank you so much for stopping by!



Vampire tags!

2017-09-10 19:27 | 0 kommentarer


I have made some tags, using the cute vampire from the "Dracula I compel You" set
from Whimsy Stamps. I have had this pink idea on my mind and of course I had to make
it in red as well!


I tried to make him extra spooky by making his eyes really blood shot and then
applied some Glossy Accent to them! 


Not much coloring on Mr. Vampire except his cape, a little grey to his skin and
some color on his bat friend!


Where I did color, I used Copic Markers!

Tiny dogs & bubbles!

2017-09-04 23:01 | 0 kommentarer


When making this card I had soap bubbles on my mind! 


To make the bubbles I punched a hole in an full adhesive post-it note to use as a mask,
then using a blending tool, and very gently inked from the edges of the hole with
Distress Ink, yellow, pink and blue. I let the bubbles overlap each other.
I colored the dogs with Copic markers!


In each of the bubbles I stamped a tiny dog from the " Little Dog Agenda" set
from Mama Elephant. To finish off the card I stamped "Hello" to make the card
a bit more versatile to go with many occasions rather than a birthday card.

Freshly Made Sketches 303!

2017-09-01 22:36 | 1 kommentarer


It has been quite a while since I participated in a challenge, so this week I am playing
along in the "for fun" challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches!

Above is the sketch and below is my take on the card!


I have been playing with some of the cats from the "BB Cool Cat" set by
My Favorite Things for this challenge.


I never get tired of these cats, this is probably one of my most used stamp sets!


The cats are colored with Copic Markers. All these blank spaces can feel a bit
overwhelming but at the same time I like the Clean & Simple look!


Thank you so much for stopping by today!



Vampire card with pink & black flowers!

2017-08-27 22:40 | 0 kommentarer


I knew I wanted this Vampire stamp the minute I laid my eyes on him, I just had
to add him to my collection of stamps! I never send Halloween cards myself, but I guess
that will change this year!


Mr. Dracula is from the stamp set "Dracula I compel You", from Whimsy Stamps, this set also comes with lots of different sentiments and some bats as well!


The flowers are made of "Foamiran", a 0.6 mm thick foam, easy to craft with and shapeable. These flowers weren´t shaped in any way, I just cut them out using a punch and attached them to the card with some brads! The Foamiran comes in so many colors and is also purhased from Whimsy Stamps. Anyone have some tips on how to sharpen punches, please let me know!


  Not a lot of coloring required on Mr. Dracula, just his cape, eyes and his bat. And some grey markers for the face! I tried some different techniques on the blood shut eyes, all cool in their own ways but this is my favorite that I will stick to! The background is colored with Copic markers, the darkest is C5, down to C1 and I used the colorless blender to get that dirty grey splotchy look and feel.


You can´t tell from the photos but I added some Glossy Accents to his eyes,
to make them pop and shine!


I love that the bat is tied to a string like a balloon!


Thanks for stopping by!



Cats & dogs!

2017-08-20 20:20 | 0 kommentarer


For this birthday card I have once again been playing with some of the tiny cats and dogs
from the "Little cat agenda" and the "Little dog agenda" sets from Mama Elephant,
by mixing them! Often I think to make only cat cards or only dog cards, as I think
that people are cat persons or dog persons, but for
this card I just wanted to have some of each and mixed them up! 


I have colored the furry friends with Copic markers. The paw print stamp is from
the "Puppy" set from Paperie Ink.


As I wanted this card to be neutral and not too girly, I skipped the glitter on this!


Thank you so much for stopping by today!



Mermaid card!

2017-08-15 19:57 | 0 kommentarer


I have seen so many cute mermaid cards on Instagram lately, I was so inspired I had to bring out
my own mermaid stamp "Arianna" by Annie Rodrigue and Kraftin´ Kimmie Stamps
and make one too!


I colored her and the sea horses with Copic markers, the background is made using
Distress Inks and droplets of water.


I also added a few drops of Glossy Accents to make some shiny bubbles!
It is a bit hard to see but her tail is really shimmery as I added a few
layers of Wink of Stella!


Thank you for stopping by!

After uploading my pictures of the images I colored from the pipe folds lesson for feedback from Alyce, (the sweetest and most talented coloring instructor ever!), I have taken her advice to experiment and color two dresses with the same blend, but change up how big the shadows vs. highlight ratio is in each one.


I actually have a lot of C markers, here I have used C7-C5-C4-C3-C2 and C1 and it really
is easier when you have more markers then three when it comes to blending.


I think I was stressing when coloring the one to the left (a few days ago),  coloring today on the dress on the right I went back over and over and over with my markers to really blend and I wasn´t afraid to use my darkest marker much more.


The same goes for these grey dresses, the left one was colored a few days ago and the one on the right was colored today and I really let it take time.


Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great weekend!



Happy Birthday, stars & kittens!

2017-08-07 19:19 | 0 kommentarer


For today´s card I have been playing with some of the kittens from the
"Little cat agenda" set from Mama Elephant. 


The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the "Big Greetings" set from Avery Elle.


I chose some kittens who seemed like they were going to a birthday party! Of course I
couldn´t help but adding some glitter to them as well! 


I also added som wooden stars from I think Studio Calico (no package left as I put them in a plastic container right after purchase), what I like about them is that they are easy to color with Copic markers in the color you prefer and they look pretty with sparkly glitter glue too!


Thanks for popping in today! Have a great week!



Pipe folds!

Coloring pipe folds!


I am not going fast with the Clothing class I am taking with Kit and Clowder, as there are so many things to do when taking vacation. This years vacation has been a staycation (vacation staying at home!) so I have had time to do a little of everything, and one thing has been
coloring pipe folds!


I only have tree markers in most of my color familys, (except when it comes to the E´s, maybe I will try to color brown tones some day!) compared to Alyce´s five, so it is a little harder to blend perfectly and smooth sometimes, but I am happy with the result anyway!


Trying out different color combinations...


...I have only been practicing coloring the images from the class so far.


This is so much fun, but a bit scary at the same time!


Thank you for stopping by today!



Oh no...feel better!

 I have had the "Doctor´s helpers" stamp set from Create a Smile Stamps sitting on my desk for a while now, just waiting for some great ideas to take shape! Love this cute little nurse mouse!


The background is made by heat embossing the mouse and the band aid using clear embossing powder. I then masked stripes and colored the stripes with Distress inks (spun sugar and hickory smoke). I really liked this technique but next time I will do the heat embossing in black... to make the images pop a little more together with the stripes. I think I also could have gone a bit more heavy with the Distress Inks too.


The sentiments are included in the stamp set! Image is colored with Copic markers.
Some glitter is added to the hat and the syringe!

For this card I envisioned a line of cute "Little Cat Agenda" kitties from Mama Elephant,
dancing around in their tutu´s with their little crowns on their heads!
I also wanted to incorporate the banner from the "Woodland Wonders" set from Avery Elle.


I did some masking as I wanted the kitties to hold hands (paws)!


This time I did the background first, using Copic markers for the grass and Distress Ink to color the sky. I used my Scan N Cut to cut the kitties out, then adhered them to the background. 


Of course there had to be a little glitter on this card!


Thank you for stopping by!



Big guy golfing!

2017-07-23 22:28 | 0 kommentarer


I almost forgot to share the birthday card I made last week, if you follow me on Instagram (tina.mypop) you might recognize it from there!


The requests for this card were the colors red, blue, yellow and the stamp
"Big guy golfing" by Mo Manning.


I almost always color my stamped image first, mask it and then use a mini ink blending
tool and Distress Inks to color the background.


It is always so much fun to peel of the masking paper and see the complete scene,
image and background!


Image is colored with Copic markers!


Thanks for stopping by today!



Coloring folds!

2017-07-13 16:17 | 0 kommentarer


Practicing some coloring, as I am taking the Clothing Coloring Class by Kit And Clowder.
Today is all about folds. 


There is so much to think about and take into consideration, as shadows, cast shadows, where the lightsource comes from and outlines.


This is what it looks like when the RV69 bleeds on your practicing sheet...


Thanks for stopping by today!



Sticky notes!

2017-07-12 23:01 | 0 kommentarer

How cool and cute is the sticky note stamp from Mama Elephant?!!!


Even though the stamp set has its own cats and dogs I chose to use the kittens from the "Little Cat Agenda" set and the puppies from the "Little Dog Agenda" set, also from Mama Elephant for this card! 


They are just the cutest and makes me smile every time! 


I wanted the background matting to be colorful, so I decided to make my own "patch work"! That is using strips from scrap pieces of patterned papers, it is so quick and easy to do and it feels good to use some of those scrap pieces too, I have a full box of them!


The images and the grass are colored with Copic markers.


I added some Glossy Accents to the paper clips to get them shiny and metal like! I also added a drop or two of glitter glue to the frosting of the cake and to the pencil!


Thank you for stopping by today!
