31. Happy New Year, and how dots make a difference

First off I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year! Go easy on the bubbles with the children around, and take a moment to remember all the good things that happened to you the past year before fretting over a new one. I hope the new year will bring you creative moments and great memories that last a lifetime!

Today I have a simple card I was challenged to do. Well, two, actually. It seems fitting to add today, the last day of the year. It is definitely the day to get the bling on! The challenge I was given, by a fellow Copic Marker Norge design team member, Kjersti B., was to make something metallic. I decided I should try colouring in metallic, and for some reason picked an image with loads of folds in the dress and funky hair. Why not doubling the challenge, right? Oh, and I asked if I should make it sparkle or not, so when she let me choose I decided to do both…

Anyway, here are the finished cards. I’ve used glittery paper around the image on the non-sparkly one, but kept it without embellishments etc. I think the colouring turned out alright as well. It wasn’t too difficult colouring up something metallic. I’ve used an image from Make it Crafty, called Girl with Glass Slipper.

So what about the glittery one? Well, I used the exact same colours for the dress, but I added a whole bunch of dots everywhere. It really sparkles, doesn’t it?! Throwing a lot of dots in the mix can really transform a dress!

Copics used: (silver) C1, C3, C5, C7, C9, (hair) E08, E18, E19, E49, E97, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, (purple on card 1) V12, V15, V17, 100, (red on card 2) R22, R59, R89, W9 + two different white pens.

29. The forest

I have an imageless card to show you today. It was made for someone who loves the outdoor and the forest, so I decided to go with a green and brown theme and use loads of cut out trees. The tree die is by Noor Design. I’ve used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts, as well as lace from LLC. The main paper here I believe is Pion.

And another funky angle photo!

28. Poinsettia, clean and simple

It is my turn for another inspirational post on Copic Marker Norge today and as we rarely have any projects with coloured flowers I decided it was time for just that. I made two projects using the same image. I will show off one of these on my blog today. The other one will appear in two days, on the 30th. If you’d like to sneak a look of the other project just pop over to CMN to see them both at once today.

I’ve used this super pretty poinsettia from Power Poppy. It was a lot of fun colouring it up. I’ve decided to keep the card super simple with just a couple of stripes of glitter to frame the Maja Design paper I printed Christmas on. The gorgeous chipboard is from Make it Crafty.

Let’s have the funky view as well, because it looks super cool with the chipboard! I coloured the chipboard with the same reds as on the poinsettia, apart from the lightest colour.

Copics used: (red) R22, R24, R27, R59, (green) YG61, YG63, YG67, YG99, (yellow) Y13, Y19, YR16, E08

26. Girl with big balloon

There’s been a lot of Christmas lately. Funny that, right? Well, today someone special has her birthday, so I feel I had to have a pink birthday card on my blog! It’s very plain, but still fun I thought. The stamp is by Mo’s Digital Pencil and I think it’s great! I love the huge balloon and the little girl! I jazzed up the card with some Bazzill card stock in three different colours, whereas the sentiment stamp as added to one of them. The sentiment is by Papirdesign.

Copics used: (pink) RV00, RV02, RV04, RV09, R89, (bear) E41, E43, E44, (hair) E21, E25, E29, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (grey) W2

25. Blue Christmas at last

The last couple of projects I made were in my usual Christmas favourite, blue. I even used the same stamp for them both, where I coloured the clothes in the same colours. She got a different hair colour though. The stamp is by C.C. Designs. I found these gorgeous Maja Design papers right before Christmas and they are the perfect colour for the blue I wanted for Christmas.

The usual twine and charm is accomponied by card candi and acrylic paint. I’ve added a lot of distress ink and frantage to the image itself.

Here both projects are side by side. If you’d like more details about the lollipop card you can view that post here as it went up a few days ago.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (hair) E41, E42, E43, E44, (brown) E71, E74, E77, E79, (blue) B91, B93, B95, B97, B99
