Magnolia – Christmas gift

I think I might be crazy. For some reason I decided to take part in a mini challenge where I am to make two Christmas cards each month this year. When Christmas finally comes around I guess I’ll have a mini mountain of cards I can send out, though…

At the start of the year I bought a few Magnolia stamps. I have even coloured up a fair few of them already! I decided to use this on one of the cards for January. I kept is really quite simple, with a reasonably plain Noor Design background paper, a Make It Crafty chipboard and a few candi on the side.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, R20, (hair) E71, E74, E77, E79, (dress) B32, B34, B37, Y13, Y38, E97, W0, W3, W5, (gift) YG13, YG67

Wryn with dandelion

There is a big new Tiddly Inks release today! New clear stamps, new digital stamps, new awesomeness! There is no secret I love me a bit of Tiddly Inks and I think I might have a new favourite! I thought I would show a card with her today, because she is super cute! She is called Wryn Wishes.

I did, as I have done a lot lately, decide to make a clean and simple card. CAS card are quickly turning out to be my new favourite, and they take no time to make at all! This one I did with a printed sentiment, a border stamp from Neat and Tangled which I used blue memento ink on, and a background paper from Lili of the Valley. The image is coloured in with Copics as usual.

Copics used: (hair) E70, E71, E74, E77, E79, (skin) E00, E02, E04, E13, E15, (pinks) R20, R22, (green) YG01, YG13, YG63, YG67, G99, (sky) B32, C1, (yellow) Y13, Y38, E97

I will be back with a new card tomorrow!

Winter hugs

It is time for some mid-way inspiration at Copic Marker Norge and this is my contribution. We are trying something new for our challenges: playing with moodboards! Winter and chill and forest and snow is how I interpreted the moodboard.

I decided on a Ching-Chou Kuik image which I coloured in with Copics. The papers are Maja Design and I think they are my all time favourites. I love them!

Another photo from a different angle where it is easier to see the layers.

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.

21. Girl with tiny snowman on a lollipop card

So there has been one thing missing for the most of this month. Something that usually appears quite often on my blog during December. Blue Christmas cards! Let’s try to make up for that a little by having a blue lollipop card!

I had a lot of fun making the lollipop card I showed off earlier this month. So much that I’ve made some more to use as Christmas cards for some of my co-workers! For this one I used a totally adorable stamp from C.C. Designs and a whole bunch of Maja Design papers. I even used two of the sentiments that come on the bottom of these papers!

With a dash of acrylic paint, distress ink and frantage, with a snowflake die, cheese cloth and some card candi, it was all good to go!

Here is how the back of it looks. I made the Christmas greeting on the computer and cut it out after.
