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.

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.

30. Pionsettia lollipop card

Two days ago I had an inspirational post up at Copic Marker Norge where I was showing off two cards made with the same image. The first one appeared here on the 28th and the second is due today. This one is a lollipop card. If you click on the image to the right you can view the post where I added the first of these, which was a clean and simple card. Using one image on two completely different cards is quite fun to do actually!

The image for these two cards was the pretty pionsettia by Power Poppy. I’ve used various paper from Papirdesign, Lemoncraft and Maja Design for this one. Some memory box showflakes in red glitter, cheese cloth and white acrylic paint help make up the card.

Copics used: (red) R22, R24, R27, R59, R89, (green) YG00, YG03, YG63, YG67, (yellow) Y13, YR16, E08, (background) E43

 

Here is a photo of the two next to each other. As you can see, I have also angled the flower a bit different on the two projects.

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.

27. Gingerbread girl on a lollipop card

Time for another lollipop card. I decided to make this one in green with a bit of gold, white and brown. Maja Design and LemonCraft papers with a dash of acrylic paint, some Memory Box snowflakes, distress ink, frantage and card candi. The lovely little chipboard is by Make it Crafty which I coloured with the same YGs as the clothes on the little girl and the cute stamp is by C. C. Designs.

Copics used: (green) YG61, YG63, YG67, YG99, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (brown) E71, E74, E77, E79, (grey/white) C1, C3, (hair and gingerbreadman) E41, E42, E43, E44.
