Letters to the North Pole

Two months until Christmas. Today. We celebrate on the 24th in Norway. I bet that will go just as fast as the rest of the year has and it will be Christmas in no time at all. Thankfully I’ve already started making Christmas cards this year!

On this card I am showcasing a Hochanda exclusive stamp with sentiment by Paper Nests Dolls, called Letters to the North Pole. The program will be on the 27th this month. My card is going to be on TV, woo! I’ve made two cards using this cute stamp and I will add the other card here on the blog on the 27th. They have been made to match each other.

I’ve used papers from Noor Design, Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and ribbon. I’ve painted the edges with acrylic paint to give the card an even colder feeling, and distressed the edges on the white paper first so the paint would be more visible.

Here you can see the layers better:

It is the middle of October, and Copic Marker Norge is back with its regular monthly challenges! This time around we’re starting Christmas a little early.

I recently bought one of those stamping platforms. I love it! I am finally able to stamp properly, I’ve started embossing and I am once again using my stamps to colour up. For this reason I went with a rubber stamp for this card. One I once won. It is from Stamping Bella and I think it’s “totes adorbs”!

The card is being kept reasonably simple with a magnolia die cut border, some shiny purple card candy from Craftwork Cards and some paper scraps I had laying around. I believe the paper is by Creative Imagination, Lili of the Valley and Papirdesign. The sentiment is from Norsk Stempelblad, where I finally played with some embossing!

It was quite a fun image to colour up, actually, so I am sure there will be more of this kind before Christmas is upon us!

More snowmen

This year is definitely the year for snowmen christmas cards. This is my most recent make using one of Art by Mi Ran‘s adorable images. It’s been a while since I coloured any of these now, so it was definitely about time! I am sticking with the theme of reasonably simple cards for the holidays and merely used a bit of acrylic paint and frantage embossing powder to give it a more wintery feel.

We are having an advent calendar over at Copic Marker Norge and this is my inspirational card for December 10th.

White winter Wryn

Another Tiddly Inks Christmas card from me today. I used Winter Wryn again, and I am sticking to the same kind of theme I did when I last shared a card using this image. (You can have a look here if you’d like.) I went for a red outfit this time and a whiter card. It seemed like the perfect card to share today as I got featured for my other card over at Copic in the Craft Room. What an honour! I am so chuffed!

The dies are from Noor Design and Tim Holtz and everything is, as always, coloured in with Copics.

Ricky Winter Light Wishes

Another Winter themed Christmas card using a Tiddly Inks image, it is called Ricky Winter Light Wishes. I had a lot of fun colouring it in as I very rarely try to colour animals. I coloured it all in with Copics, and I used a bit of dark blue distress ink for the sky along with a white pen to make the stars.

The dies I’ve used are all Noor Design. Sadly one of the trees ended up a bit wonky for the photo… doh!
