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.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (hair) E08, E18, E19, E97, (blues) B000, B91, B93, B95, B97, B99, (brown) E71, E74, E77, E79

Blue Santa-Wryn with reindeer

It’s the middle of the month so we are ready for a new challenge at Copic Marker Norge. This time it is one of my favourite themes: blue Christmas! You have until middle of January to enter.

I have made a plain card this time around. I like my Christmas cards to be reasonably plain this year as you might have figured out already! The image is by Tiddly Inks, and is one of my favourite images for Christmas cards. It is called Reindeer Games. I’ve coloured it in with copics, but not the usual combinations. Both the blues and the colours I used for the hair are new copics I hadn’t used before. I like them!

The background is made with a snowy background paper to which I added white embossed snowflakes. I added the same snowflakes around the card using blue glitter embossing which I also used on the text stamp, which, by the way, is by Norsk Stempelblad and means “Santa hug”.

And another photo, because why not!
