CMN 5 years – blog hop

Did Elin send you here? I wouldn’t be surprised if she did.

One of the events we are hosting to celebrate Copic Marker Norge‘s 5th birthday is a blog hop. There will be prizes randomly drawn from those who follow the requirements listed below. Once the blog hop is closed I will also draw a random winner among the comments I have received. They will receive a small goody bag. I might update this post once I return from my holiday next weekend with a photo of the goody bag, and if I don’t have time I’ll add a photo when the winner is announced shortly afterwards. This also leaves me room to throw in a few more things!

The prizes for the main blog hop are as follows:

  • A Copic Marker Storage bag (without markers).
  • 3 digi stamps of your choice from Art By Miran.
  • An e-book of colouring tutorials of your choice from Make it Crafty.
  • 2 digi stamps from Wee Stamps

To win the main prize you need to do the following:
1. Follow the Copic Marker Norge blog
2. Copy the image of the main prize onto your own blog side bar and link it to CMN
3. Visit all our DT’s blogs and leave them a comment.
4. Return to the CMN blog and leave a comment on the blog hop article.

All of this must be done before 9pm CET on 25. September. More info, and some photos can be found on the main blog.

If you have followed the list, then you should indeed have arrived here from Elin‘s blog and end up back on the main blog once you are done here.

My card has been made using a lovely stamp by Ching-Chou Kuik. I am quite pleased with how all that hair turned out this time! WOC and LLC flowers with some Noor Design butterflies and ribbon from a local shop make up most of the embellishments. The small transparent pearl things are from a local shop and I love them – I think I’ll throw a few into the goody bag, in fact.

CMNs 5th birthday

This month we are celebrating Copic Marker Norges fifth birthday! Happy Birthday to us. To kick off the month we have a new birthday challenge. There will be loads of fun things both on the blog and facebook page during the month, so be sure to keep an eye out as there are some great prizes to be won!

The card I made for the birthday is done with an image from Tiddly Inks that I absolutely adore. The image is obviously coloured with copics. Most of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and lace and some flowers from Live and Love Crafts

Another flowery ballerina

Today is the day. My first proper unspirational post for Copic Marker Norge. I have admittedly put it off because the other girls are super talented and I enjoy looking at their creations. But when you’re due, you’re due, and I am! Don’t forget to enter in our current bingo challenge while you’re there!

I absolutely loved how this ballerina from Aurora Wings turned out last month, so I decided to colour her up again. This time the image is 7.5cm (whereas it was about 10cm last time) so I had to be even more careful and watch the details even closer. It was quite the challenge, but fun!

The papers are by Pion, which I ruffled up and layered with some cheese cloth (bikuben), lace and pearls (LLC), and ribbon. The flowers are as usual from WoC and LLC. I made the top sentiment myself and the bottom one is from LotV.

Soft blues

Here is the card I made for the most recent Art by Mi Ran facebook anything goes challenge that started almost two weeks ago. As my mojo isn’t been playing along for a while, I decided to use one of my favourite images, Rora and Butterfly.

The paper is scraps I had laying about which I roughed up the edged of and layered along with some ribbon, lace and cheese cloth. The lace and pearls are from Live and Love Crafts, as the blue flowers whereas the white rosebuds are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The sentiments are stamps from Lili of the Valley and Make it Crafty.

Zoe Party Girl

There are various reasons why I’ve not been very good at updating the blog very often for the majorty of the year so far. I am hoping it will change soon.

Here is the card I made for the most recent challenge at Copic Marker Norge. This month’s theme is bingo. I made three different lines: 1) Cheesecloth – Text – Flowers, 2) Lace – Flowers – Stitching, 3) Buttons – Text – Stitching.

The image I decided to use is a brand new addition to my collection and my first Make It Crafty image. She is called Zoe Party Girl. As always she is coloured in with Copic Markers.

Papers are by Panduro and Lili of the Valley, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts, the cheesecloth is purchased at Bikuben, and the lace is from Live and Love Crafts as well
