Art by Mi Ran - Have a special birthday

Hi all!!

I wanted to share an extra project over at Art by Mi Ran today, so I am sharing here as well!
I just don't want to see any Christmas cards, or anything that has to do with snow atm, so I thought I'd make a bright and happy card!

 The papers I used are from Prima Marketing, and all the edges are inked with Distress Ink Walnut Stain. I used a doily from my stash, which I didn't ink at all.


 The image I used is Whimsy's Flo. I stamped her with Memento Angel Pink ink and colored her in No-Lines technique. This was the second ever time I did it, and I am quite happy with it! I used the following Copic Markers.
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E13, E93, E95
Hair: E40, E41, E43, E47
Dress: RV63, RV66, RV69
Flowers: RV52, RV55, Y21, Y26, V12, V15, G40, G43, G46


 I added some mesh and ribbon from a shop called Kimya. I also filled a glass vial with some pink glitter powder. The vial is also from Kimya.
The sentiment I used is from Whimsy Stamps too
To finish off my card, I added some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers.

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

I wish you all a happy new year, and be safe, don't play with fireworks!!!

Hugs, Sandra

Art by Mi Ran - Snow globe

Hi all!!

First let me say that I hope your Christmas was great, and that you got everything you wished for! I had an awesome Christmas, spend it with family and friends.

Today I my turn to host the Art by Mi Ran blog, and I can't help but share the last Christmas project I did this year.

 I took a glass jar that used to contain vegetables, and cleaned it very well. I used some Dutch Doobadoo Gesso on the bottom inside and outside, to make it look like snow. After it dried, I added some powder snow in it.
 The image I used is called Eirwen, and I used my Copic Markers to color her.
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E13, E93, E95
Hair: E23, E25, E27
Dress: R24, R46, R89, R59
Cape: W5, W7, 100
Fur: W00, W1, W3
I made a snowman out of paper, with a tutorial from Annes paper creations. The hat from the snowman is a cut file from my Silhouette Cameo. Behind the snowman and the image is a tree made out of paper, also from a tutorial from Annes paper creations.
The lid is covered with a piece of snowblanket. I added some fake Christmas tree branches around it, and embellished it with some deco material from my own tree. I poked a hole in the lid and threadened some twine through it. I added a white rose from Wild Orchid Crafts, some stars en balls and some gold stamen from my stash.

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

CreaMiep - Kerstgroetjes van ons

Hoi allemaal!

Vandaag is het mijn beurt op het blog van CreaMiep. Ik zit met mijn hoofd helemaal in de kerstsferen, dus ik hoefde ook niet na te denken wat het thema van mijn projectje zou worden.

 Dit keer heb ik ervoor gekozen om een kraft tasje te pimpen, met wat papier uit mijn eigen voorraad. Ik heb alle randjes aangezet met Distress Ink Vintage Photo
De witte achtergrond is een vel cardstock, waar ik een winterse rand op heb gestempeld. Ik heb hiervoor Memento Toffee Crunch inkt gebruikt. 


 De stempel die ik heb gebruikt, is van Wee Stamps. Dit leuke meisje is ingekleurd met alcoholmarkers, die matchen bij het papier dat ik heb gebruikt. Ik heb haar met Memento Tuxedo black inkt op DCP papier gestempeld.


 De tekst stempel komt uit de najaarsset van CreaMiep, en is gestempeld met Memento Tuxedo black inkt.



Om mijn kaart af te werken, heb ik verschillende bloemen gebruikt, Cherry Blossom, Roosjes 15mm en Sweetheart flowers.


Dit was het weer voor vandaag, ik hoop dat jullie het leuk vonden!

Liefs, Sandra

The East Wind Challenge - A Meowy Christmas

Hi all!!

December is here, the last month of the year! It is my favorite month of the year, as we celebrate several things! First on Dec 5th we celebrate Sinterklaas, a Dutch tradition for kids. On the 15th we celebrate our daughters birthday, she will be 2 years old!!! And the Christmas, and New Years Eve, what a joy! I just love those holidays!

Anyway, since december is here, we also start a new challenge at The East Wind! Our theme for this one is easy, we want to see Christmas cards!!!

Here's mine

 The papers I used are from Carte Bella, and I inked all edges with Distress Ink Vintage Photo. 
I kept the design quite simple, because I printed off the image a little bit too big.



 The image I used is this months newsletter freebie, which you all received. I used my Copic Markers to color the image, and I used the following.
Big cat: E71, E74, E77, C00, C1, C3
Small cat: YR24, YR27
Holly and berries: YG95, YG97, R89, R46
Gold: Y23, Y26, Y28
Bow: R24, R46, R89
I covered the bauble in Glossy Accents, but is pretty hard to capture that on camera. I also added some dots with a gold pearlmaker pen.


 I added some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers as embellishments, and added some Magnola berries.

The sentiment is in Dutch, and says lots of big Christmas hugs. It is from a set from CreaMiep.

This was it for today, why don't you pop over and join us at The East Wind!

Hugs, Sandra
