Stretching your markers

Hello everybody!
It’s Donna here and I’ve been really enjoying this new-to-me stamp set! It’s called Loving Mom and it has the most beautiful flowers. What a pleasure to colour!
I’ve used the same markers to colour all the flowers, but by varying the amounts of the darker markers, and the amount of white space left I’ve been able to get some colour variation, while keeping a very controlled colour palette. Rather than blend the brushstrokes, I’ve chosen to leave the individual strokes showing to give some texture to the petals.
Once I’d coloured each of the flowers, I fussy cut them out, right on the black line, and went around the outside with a black marker to stop the white paper showing through.
On a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock I ink blended Distress Oxide in Wild Honey, laying it down heavily in the middle and fading out towards the edges of the cardstock. I then glued down the archway which I cut from a die in my stash. I very quickly wove the stem of the back flower through before the glue dried. In the end, this stem got covered by the bigger flower in front, so I needn’t have hurried so much!
The other flowers were added on top, and I lifted the darker flower up with dimensional tape. I lifted up the ends of the petals to give a really three dimensional look to the card.

The sentiment is from another lovely Kennedy Grace Creations stamp set, called Just A Rose. This has also been popped up with foam tape. Finally, I trimmed a tiny bit off the edges of the panel and attached it so a piece of pink card stock  to give a narrow frame around my ‘picture’.

I hope you’ve enjoyed looking at this card and have been inspired to get creative. If you’d like to see more cards, feel free to visit me on Instagram.

Sweet Birthday

Hello everyone! First of all, wishing you all a very happy new year! It's Berina here today, sharing a beautiful and sweet card using the tic tac toe board for January!


I used the diagonal from the board - Die Cut, Embossing and Flowers. I decided to use the Splendid Roses for the flowers. I stamped the floral image using Memento black ink and colored the flowers with Copic markers. I used V09, V17, V15 and V12 for the flowers and G99, YG67, YG63, YG61 and YG03 for the leaves. I loved coloring these flowers. I cut the panel into 4" x 5 1/4". For the sentiment, I decided to go with the "Wishing you a sweet birthday" from the same stamp set. I gold embossed the sentiment and die cut it with a small oval. I colored the edges of the die cut with V15. I took a top folding A2 cardbase and colored the edges of the front with V15. I adhered the image panel on to the card base with glue and attached the sentiment panel with foam tape. I love how this card has turned ou…

Birthday Tea Party

Hello everyone! It's Berina here today! I'm here to inspire you to create something with our beautiful Mood board for December. I love the beautiful festive colors.


I've been wanting to use the Vintage Tea Cups stamp set the moment I got it I love the tea cup stamp. As soon as I saw this moodboard, I was fixated on using that stamp set.


I stamped the border image from the stamp set using Memento London Fog on the top left and lower right. I stamped the kettle and the cup with the same ink. I used Copic markers to color the images. I used BG15, BG13, BG11 and BG000 for the teal colored part and C7, C3, C1 and 0 for the remaining. I decided to add some grounding for the kettle and cup with the grey color. I stamped the sentiment using Hero Arts black ink.
