Kanban stamps cards

The Canberra Quilt and Craft has been on this weekend. I went to the fair on Friday and really enjoyed it. One of my craft fair purchases is the Kanban 2010 Christmas Urban Belles (Stamp9033) set. As soon as I saw this set I thought it was fantastic to practice my copic colouring, as well as other colouring mediums.  I didn't actually buy this set on Friday, but a friend of mine went to the fair Sunday, the last day, so I asked her to pick it up for. I collected the stamp set from her place this afternoon and when I got home I decided I wanted to play straight away.  I have used all three of the 'belles' but kept the colours the same when using my copics. I'm really happy with how all the cards have turned out.

Copics used:
  • Skin = E51, E21, E11
  • Checks = R32
  • Dresses, Socks, Top, Hat & Hairpiece = R32, R35, R37
  • Jeans & Jacket = B00, B02, B05
  • Hair & Shoes = E31, E35, E37
  • Belts = C1, C3, C5
  • Blender = 0
Here are my cards:

Embossed Butterfly Card

Lately I've been watching scrapbooking and card tutorials offered by Two Peas in a Bucket.  The tutorials I have been watching are free. Anyway, after watching one the other night it motivated me to get into my craft room and make a card using my embossing powders. I think it's been nearly a year since I've done any embossing. I've kept the card simple, in line with the tutorial, but I really like how it has turned out.  Here is my card:

Halloween Cards

While I was in Queensland earlier this year I purchased a We R Making Memories Halloween Designer Card Kit from Arnolds Scrapbooking. Well, after watching Creations by Christie putting together her designer card kit, I got motivated to put mine together. Even though I don't celebrate Halloween and don't know anyone here in Australia who does, I still really like all the craft halloween stuff.  These cards were really quick and easy. Christie, from Creations by Christie did her cards within an hour, but it took me about two hours.  Here are my cards:
