Copic Challenge

I do really like the colour challenges on the Copics Challenge blog, they make you use combinations that perhaps you wouldn't normally try. This is the combination today:

I didn't have R22 but used a colour as close as possible:

As I used Willow with Cookies (Whiff of Joy stamp) I went with a cookie theme; the background is Karen Foster Cookie paper so it's cookies all round - yum yum ☺☺☺. I created the sentiment myself.

These were all the colours used:

Easter Card - The Chocolate Egg House!

Wouldn't you like to live in a house like this? Or at least go visit and swipe an egg or two!! This is a big card, standing at 25cm tall, made for my Monday Mojo spot on Dottie's World. The house, base of roof, door and garden path was made from American Traditional plain cardstock (available at Charmed Cards & Crafts).

The roof was covered in eggs cut on my Silhouette and painted with Copic markers. A strip of Felt Fusion Easter Eggs sits at the bottom of the roof.

I used two of the Charmed Cards & Crafts digi Stamps, namely Easter Holly 3-in-1 from the Holly and Madison bundle, and Henry Hare from the Animal Magic bundle. The grass, chicks and vine was cut on my Silhouette in white cardstock and coloured in with copics, as was the two main images. A Karen Foster rub-on was used for the sentiment.

Holly was attached to the card using foam pads to slightly elevate her.

Thanks for looking. Have a lovely day xxx

Sunday Challenge - Shaped Card

Time for another challenge on Dottie's World. This time Louise set the challenge and this is what she wanted:

I want you to make a shaped card this week - any shape other than squares or rectangles please! Oh and don't forget your Charmed download!

Well I'm in an Easter-card making type of mood and created two such cards today (OK I'm writing this Saturday), one for Sunday's challenge and one for my Monday Mojo spot on Dottie's World tomorrow - both are shaped cards so both comply equally.

The shape I chose for today is an Easter egg, nice and simply sure, but I have to confess I spent quite some time on this one.

The shaped egg was cut on my Silhouette and I formed the card itself around it.

The inside is decorated with K&Co paper.

My Charmed digi stamp is Henry Hare from the Animal Magic collection. I think he looks cute in yellow and green LOL

Easter Basket with eggs again cut on the Silhouette.

Thanks for looking. Have a lovely Sunday (don't forget to put your clocks forward!!).
