Dreamy dragon in the sky

2013-03-16 So I sat down last weekend to work a bit more with my dragon and believe it or not I have finished a card. I have to say that work-stress and good friends are a good craftingforce.

After a hard week i sat down to get my head off work and I looked at the dragon and thought – who would I like to make a dragon to and the answer was obvious: Eva. So with her in mind I made this card to let her know that I’m thinking of her and that she is very special to me. I keep with the blue and red theme and I think these flower matches beautifully with the ones on the stamp so I used only them as an embellishment.

The inside is following the same theme but much more simple as usual. I did put some flowers there even if the card gets bulkier but I really wanted them there and the envelope is big enough to handle it.

On a completely different subject- I just ordered a new camera so soon my pictures will be much better (as seen here but I’m still learning), and hopefully I’ll start taking more photos and making some albums:) I have been dying to try Project life. I can’t wait!

Coloring of Dreamy Dragon

2013-02-24

Due to a week of sickness I haven’t really made anything productive but during the last days I have manage to color Dreamy Dragon from Wee Stamps and I’m just in love! I wanted to show him off before the card is ready (that might take a while).

I really like how the branch turned out, I usually put way to much color on so I tried to keep both the branch and the dragon light.

I plan to cut him out with a circledie and mount him on a lacy-circle.

Earthy Sympathy Bugs

I have for a long time wanted to use the Sympathy Bugs from Wee Stamps, but every time i start out coloring I have to put them aside to complete another project. But finally I used them. This card is for a fellow teacher at my school that turned 50 last week. But this Monday we will celebrate her so I volunteered to make the card.

I colored the bugs to match this beautiful papers from Basic Gray’s collection Cappella. I just love the feminine tone of the papers and the patterns, without it getting to girly. All the papers have been inked with Memento’s Rich Cocoa, I also sew around the edges with a cream thread. I still haven’t gotten the hang of the sewing. I doesn’t get straight and i have a hard time to see when I should stop at the corners, but i could cover up the worse mistakes. I used this weeks sketch from Sketch Saturday and jazzed it up a bit. The sketch is very like how i start out most of my cards, and also very similar to the one I did for Theo last week so I tried to add some interest by not letting the lower part go all the way to the bottom.

To frame my bugs I used the Lacy ovals from Spellbinders. The bugs are actually colored on a separate piece that I then cut out and glued onto the oval. I really like how the wings got dimension like this, they don’t just go outside the frame, they also goes up a bit. The edge of the oval have been distress with Antique Linen and paper pierced.

I have embellished the cards with one of the corner-treatments from provocraft’s vintage die and some brads from my stash. The decorative edge at the green paper is made with the my edgeabilities; the border is from the classic triple scallop and the insert is from the classic Ric Rac. The bow is tied as a Nellie knot and the button on top is from the basic gray set Hello Luscious. The sentiments or rather the letters are from Quickutz’s alphabet harvest. On the bugs antennas and the wings I added some diamond Stickles, and on the flowery puffs I painted with some pearl Glimmer Mist so add some glitter and glimmer.

The inside is made with the same papers and the same idea, just switching up the colors a bit.

A Brown Forestdragon

So this weekend is my dear friend Martin’s birthday so i wanted to make him a card. He, as I, love dragons and this cute one landed in my mailbox a week or so ago. His name is Autumn Happiness and are from Wee stamps.

The dragon is as usual colored with copics and i cut him out using the Large deckled rectangles nestabilities. I didn’t want to make him the regular green dragon but i still wanted to get him a feeling of wood and nature sense that is what Martin is all about, so he became brown. I inked the inside lightly with the Dandelion memento ink. I backed him onto some Basic Gray paper, from the Origins collection. The sentiment is from Gina K’s Garden Silhouettes. The ribbon I used was from the beginning a white satin-ribbon but i colored it with E37 to make it match the dragon. The stars I used are from a die-cut-sheet and i cut them out and colored the white backside with the Rich Cocoa memento ink. All the edged have been inked with memento to make the transition smoother.
