Little Darlings Rubber Stamps GDT - Casey

Hi all!!

Today is my second day as a Guest Designer for Little Darlings Rubber Stamps, and I am happy to share my project with you!

For this project I altered the lid of a square box. I wrapped some lace and ribbon around it, but I forgot to take a picture of it.. :(
Anyway, the papers I used for my project are from Marianne Design. I inked all edges with Distress Ink Vintage Photo.
 The image I used for this gift box is called Casey, and you can find her here. I used my trusted Copic Markers again to color her, and I used the following.
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E13 and E93 for blush.
Hair: E23. E25. E27. E29
Lips: R85, R89
Shirt: R83, R85, R89
Hairband: BG13, BG15

 The flower I used for this project are all by Wild Orchid Crafts.

The sentiment I used is from the Vintage Affections Release 3 set. You can find the set here.

This was it for today, I hope you all like it!

I want to thank Angie Hunt and the Little Darlings DT for having me as their Guest Designer!

Hugs, Sandra

Copic Marker Benelux - Sunflower Sprite

Hallo allemaal!

Vandaag laat ik jullie de kaart zien die ik voor het Copic Marker Benelux Blog heb gemaakt.

Dit kaartje is anders dan jullie van mij gewend zijn. Ik ben namelijk uitgedaagd door een vriendin van me om eens een kaart zonder embellishments te maken. Ik kan je zeggen dat het een zware bevalling was haha! Geen lintjes, kantjes, bloemetjes, pareltjes, niks voor mij! :P


De digi die ik voor deze kaart gekleurd heb, is van Aurora Wings, ze heet Sunflower Sprite.
Ik heb de volgende Copic Markers gebruikt.
Huid: E000, E00, E11, E13 en E93 voor de wangetjes
Bloemblaadjes: R83, R85, R89, Y32, Y35, Y38
Blaadjes: G40, G43, G46

Het papier dat ik heb gebruikt voor mijn kaart is van My Minds Eye.

Ik hoop dat ik jullie weer heb kunnen inspireren! Gaan jullie de uitdaging om geen embellishments te gebruiken ook aan? Ik zie jullie creaties graag!

Liefs, 

Sandra

Hi all!!

I am so excited today,because tioday is the first day as a GDT for Little Darlings Rubber Stamps! This is really a dream come true!!

 I decided to make a 5.5 inch square card. The paper I used is from My Minds Eye, Kate & Co collection. All edges are inked with Distress Ink Vintage Photo.
The image I used is called Criss Cross Applesauce, and she can be found here. I used my Copic Markers to color here, and I used the following.

I used my Nestabilities Circle dies to cut out the image, and matted it with a scalloped circle.
All flowers I used are by Wild Orchid Crafts, and I am totally addicted to their flowers (That is a confession, I need a 12-step plan)
The sentiment I used is from a set from Little Darlings Rubber Stamps, called Vintage Affections Release 3. They can be found here.

Love to Create - More than one fold

Hi all!

Time for a brand new challenge at Love to Create! Our theme this week is More than one fold, and I just love that! Our sponsor this week is Lee H Illustrations, offering 2 images of the winner's choice! Just click on the banner below to visit the shop.
Lee H Illustrations

Lee H illustrations also generously provided some images to the DT to work with, and this is what I created.

I had to follow the theme More than One fold, so I decided to make a paper rosette which has lots and lots of folds. Then I decided to use it to hold up my easel card, which also has more than one fold, so I completely nailed this weeks theme! :P
The papers I used are by Carte Bella.
The image I used is called Building a Snowman, and can be found here. I used my Copic Markers again to color, and I used the following.
Skin: E00, E11, E13
Hair: E23, E25, E27
Snowman: BG000, BG0000
Hat: C5, C7
Clothes: G40, G43, G46, R32, R35, R37, BG72, BG75, BG78
I used Frosted Lace Stickles on the snow, and also on the fur at the kids' clothes.
I used my labelwriter to create the sentiment.
And last but not least, a close up of the folded rosette. I took a strip of paper from 1 inch by 12 inch, and scored every 1/4 inch. I folded the strip mountain/valley style, and used a hot glue gun in the center. There you go, your own paper rosette! To finish off my card, I used my Martha Stewart Snowflake punch.

This was it for today, I hope you all like it. Please pop over to Love to Create and join us!

Tutorial Stoepje kleuren

Hallo allemaal,

Deze post heb ik geschreven voor het Copic Marker Benelux blog.

Deze keer wil ik jullie met behulp van een aantal foto's laten zien hoe je heel makkelijk een stoepje onder een stempel kan maken. Het enige wat je hiervoor nodig hebt, naast je Copic Markers, is een liniaal en een Copic Multiliner.


De stempel die ik heb gebruikt is van Saturated Canary, ze heet Pups and Me.
Als eerste teken je een lijn met je Multiliner om de achterkant van het stoepje aan te geven. Het is het mooist om dit net achter(boven) haar voeten te doen.


Ik heb gekozen voor Copic Multiliner 0,3 mm omdat de dikte hiervan ongeveer overeen komt met de dikte van de lijnen van mijn stempel.


Leg nu je liniaal schuin neer en teken een lijn. Verplaats je liniaal en teken de rest van je lijnen. Het is het mooiste om er steeds even veel afstand tussen te hebben.


Zet nu de donkerste plaatsen, dus daar waar de schaduw is, aan met C5. Ik heb bewust niet het hele stoepje gedaan, omdat ik te groot opgezet had. Ik ga nog een stuk weg snijden.


Blend je C5 uit met je C3


Als dit goed geblend is, ga je het geheel nog verder uitblenden met je C1 marker.


Als laatste blend je het geheel uit met C0. Hiermee is je stoepje klaar, maar ziet het geheel er nog wat kaal uit.


Ik heb ervoor gekozen om een grasrandje te maken. Allereerst heb ik met G99 een aantal sprietjes gemaakt


Vlakbij de G99 sprietjes, heb ik met G46 nog meer sprietjes getekend.


Als laatste heb ik het geheel opgevuld met G43 sprietjes.


Dit is het compleet gekleurde plaatje. Ik ga met Distress Ink en een sponsje de lucht nog wat bewerken.


En hier het resultaat!


Dit was het weer voor vandaag, ik hoop dat ik jullie weer wat heb kunnen leren!

Fijne zondag allemaal!

Liefs, Sandra

Hi all!

How are you all? I hope you had a fabulous weekend! Weekend is over, which means a brand new challenge at Love to Create! This week we are color inspired, we want to see Black, Orange, Lime and/or Purple.
Our sponsor for this challenge is Simply Betty Stamps, and she is offering a $10 gift certificate. Isn't that generous? Just click on the banner below to visit the shop!


Simply B also generously offered some images to the DT to work with, and this is what I created.

 As I said in my post yesterday, we don't celebrate Halloween in the Netherlands. That's why I only have 1 pack of Halloween papers, and thankfully they had the right colors! The papers I used are from the Basic Grey Eerie collection. All edges are inked with Distress Ink Black soot.
The image I used is called Zombie BDay Betty, and she can be found here. I used my Copic Markers to color her, and I used the following.
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E13, E93
Hair: C5, C7, 100
Eyes and shirt: YG03, YG06, YG09
Cupcake: YR04, YR07
Background: V12, V15, V17
 The letters were from the Basic Grey Eerie sticker sheet.
The brads I used were also from the Basic Grey Eerie collection, except from the Boo! one and the large glittery black one. They were from my stash.
To finish everything off I also tied some purple ribbon and orange ribbon around my card.

This was it for today, I hope you all like it. Please pop over to Love to Create and join us!

Hugs, Sandra
