DT Copic Marker Europe: Breast Cancer Awareness

Good morning friends, here's one of my inspiration cards for Copic Marker Europe this month.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so I decided to make a few cards to remind you all to check yourselves and to honor several women in my life who is currently fighting this terrible disease! My heart goes out to all the strong and beautiful women currently fighting every day: Stay Strong Ladies! 

Lots of artists have made images to fund or support breast cancer research and help raise awareness. I used one from Art by Mi Ran on this one.

 I used  Maja Design Papers on my card. The sentiments and heart banner dies are by La La Land crafts. Other dies by Spellbinders, Magnolia and Memorybox.

The beautiful image is Heartfelt by Art by Mi Ran.
Copic colors used: 
Skin: E000-04-11-13-21, R20
Hair: E39-35-31-30-59
Skirt: BV29-25-23-20, W7
Pink: R89-85-81
"White": W7-3-1-00

 I made a sentiment inside this card, a quote I found online:
"Strength doesn't come from what you can do. It comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn"

Hope you like my card, and don't forget to check yourselves, ladies!

Thanks for stopping by, take care!
Wishing you a colorful day!

 I used Maja Design papers, Martha Stewart punches, dies by Memorybox (swirl) and Tim Holtz (filmstrip). Flowers by WOC and lace and pearls from my stash. Postmark stamps are Kort og Godt and sentiment by Norsk Stempelblad AS.

DT Art By Mi Ran: Happy Halloween

Hello crafty friends, 

I was so excited when the talented Mi Ran Jung asked me to join the Art by Miran Challenge design team. you have seen me use a few of those gorgeous images lately, so I was happy to join the lovely ladies on her team. 

This is my very first DT card using the Whimsy Stamps rubber stamp Little Witch. I thought I would make a spooky scene with this flying wich, so I went bananas with my Silhouette (the poor thing has been gathering dust for months now lol). Here's the result: 
I really have no idea where the papers are from. I rarely use orange, so it has been in my drawer a couple of years. The shapes are all from the silhouette online store. Stickers are Making Memories and I used an old book page. 

 I had fun playing with violet and orange coloring this Little Witch
Colors used:
Skin: E13-11-21-000, R20
Hair: V0906-04-000, BV08, W7
Dress: W9-7-5-3
Orange: E07, YR06-09
Broom: E37-35-31-30, E57
Clouds: W7-3-00, Moon: YR00, W7-3-00

I put some spiderwebs on the inside too:)

Hope you'll join us in the challenge over at the Art By Mi Ran Challenge blog. Please stop by and see the gorgeous makes of the dt ladies.

And also, I wanted to show you my new badge:)


Fab, isn't it!
