Halloween with Gossmere

It’s Tiddly Challenge time! Woo! Aaaand it’s October! You know what that means, right? Oh, yes! Spooks!

I used Gossmere and once again had fun playing around with my copics. I just tossed various zig-zag lines for the sky and went over with the clear marker, drew the tree and the moon myself. I’ve also drawn the spider web. Raven die by Noor Design and the text die by Papirdesign.

Oktober og Rosa Sløyfe-aksjonen

Copic Marker Norge has made an annual event of contributing to the breast cancer awareness month of October. The DT have all made cards to sell for this event, and this post is for my contribution. The rest of the text on the page will be in Norwegian, but if you are interested in purchasing the card by contributing to this great cause, contact me and I shall provide the required information in English for you.

Da er blitt oktober igjen og Rosa Sløyfe-aksjon til inntekt for brystkreftforskning. Hos CMN ønsker vi også i år å markere dette ved å selge kortene våre til 100kr – og oppfordre alle til å gjøre det samme.

Pengene kan settes inn på CMN Designteam sin innsamlingsside.

Her finner du også informasjonen om hvordan du går frem for å kjøpe et eller flere av kortene vi har for salg.

Vi tar selvfølgelig også imot donasjoner fra de som ønsker å delta uten å lage/kjøpe kort.

I fjor fikk vi inn 1250 kr og håper på vi slår dette i år. Også denne gangen er det Kjersti som ordner i stand. Det er mange kort og vi håper dere har lyst til å være med i år!

Dersom du ønsker å kjøpe er kort til 100kr, ta kontakt med meg gjennom kommentarfeltet, kontaktskjemaet, eller facebook. Du kan se hva de andre selger ved å benytte linken øverst i dette inlegget.

Kortet jeg selger har jeg laget spesielt til denne begivenheten:

Motivet er fra The East Wind, og er selvfølgelig fargelagt med Copics. Jeg har forsøkt meg på en blanding av rosa og gul til kjolen. Dies fra Papirdesign, Precious Marieke og Magnolia. Jeg har brukt Distress Oxide og frantage på motivet.

Copics brukt: (hud) E000, E00, E04, E11, R20, (hår) BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, 100, (kjole) Y00, Y11, RV00, RV02, RV04, R39, R81, R83

Her har jeg endel av kortene jeg har laget i år for CMN, og Tiddly Inks, og noen andre også. Det er mulig å kjøpe disse kortene for 100kr/stk. Alle kortene mine har ett tall slik at det skal være enkelt å si hvilket kort det er snakk om. Hvis jeg husker riktig er ingen av disse kortene dekorert inni.

Dersom du ønsker noe spesielt laget, så er det bare å ta kontakt så skal jeg se hva jeg kan få til for deg. Det blir sannsynligvis lagt til flere kort her i løpet av måneden.

Shaker card and winter wryn

It’s Friday and it’s fab! It’s Tiddly Inks time! Winter Wryn is in my spotlight today.

I’ve done it. I’ve started making Christmas cards. But instead of doing the ‘same old’, I decided to have a go at a shaker card for the first time. As usual I didn’t follow a tutorial, as I think it’s more fun to try stuff on my own. I do like to make things awkward for myself, right?

It is not perfect. I decided to double layer the foam tape and had to cut it by hand so the thickness isn’t the same on both layers. This means that the little stars I used got stuck around the side and it looks like I’d made a frame with them as well. It works. It looks great. But it wasn’t intentional, haha!

The ‘god jul’ die is from Kaboks, the flowers from The Hobby House and Wild Orchid Cards, Martha Stewart made the puncher, the white candy is from Craftwork Card (I coloured two of them with YG67), and the paper is by Maja Design. Oh and the stars in the shaker card? That is just some confetti I had laying about. In a bag that is, not all over! I will have to get something that looks like snow for the next one.

Here you can see the stars being all over:

Copics used: (red) R24, R27, R29, R89, (snowman) C1, C3, C5, (hat) C5, C7, C9, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (hair) E41, E42, E43, E44, E47

CMN blog hop

It’s blog hop time! Copic Marker Norge is celebrating its sixth birthday this month and we’re having a blog hop to celebrate. Each DT blog will have a small prize that can be shipped world-wide, but the main prize on the CMN will only be shipped domestically. Still very much worth while for everybody to comment on the DT blogs! The prize on my blog will be a small goodie-bag of my favourite “stash” that I have yet to put together, hence no photo of it! For information on how to win the main prize, please see the CMN blog.

I went with a Tiddly Inks image for my card. This time I actually made the background first, with two different copic refills, and then coloured the image to match. It wasn’t easy getting the right shade of red for it though, but I got there in the end with many layers of colour. I decided to go with a dark hair colour to really set the contrast with the background. The image is cut out by hand and layered over a white strip with the sentiment I made to match.

Siv is the next in line! Be sure to pop by her and leave her a comment.

Shy violet and frustration-inked background

Have you ever been so stuck on a card that you have fuzzy cut it twice? Once with a border and once without? And then been so frustrated on what to do with the actual that you’re almost just throwing away the image? Well this happened to me, on this card. It’s possible because it is yellow. I am not very good with yellow. So how did it end up as a card?

Well… I got out one of my copic refill ink bottles and just tossed some ink down on the blank card, then I got a cotton pad which I poured more ink on and just rubbed it on the white background. And there we go. It wasn’t supposed to be pretty, or planned, or anything. In fact I liked how it just showed my frustration somewhat, hahaha. I made a sentiment text and printed it out and layered it between the inked background and the coloured image.

A perfectly reasonable way to react when you cannot think of what to do, right? haha. I really quite like it, though, and I will definitely do more cards like it. Although… it will be more intentional next time! Maybe I should do a tutorial on it then…

And the image? That is Shy Violet by Tiddly Inks. The card is for the new Tiddly Inks anything goes challenge. Come join in, will you?
