Baby boy

It has been a bit quiet on the blog front for me as of late. On the card front, too, actually, as my mojo is still off somewhere. I am however still able to make the odd card. This is a baby boy card I made using a super adorable Mo Manning image. Everything is coloured with Copics. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts.


Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, (hair, I think was..) E53, E55, E57, (outfit) C1, C3, C5, B0000, B000, B00, B91


CMN – Heart

I have some very exciting news.. I made it onto the Copic Marker Norway design team!! Can’t you believe it?! I primarily sent in the application for the DT call hoping that perhaps they would consider me next time around, and I actually made it onto the team! I am so chuffed! I am very much looking forward to working alongside such talented ladies and maybe inspiring people a little on my own along the way.

Today there is a new challenge at CMN – use dies. I went completely overboard on the dies using a ton from Noor Design and the card template die from GoKreate. The image I chose is by Ching-Chou Kuik, called Love, and (obviously) coloured with copics. For once I also cut the image out by hand! I decided to go with pinks for a change, because it was mother’s day here yesterday and it seemed to fit perfectly. The papers are Lili of the Valley and First Edition Paper. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts as is the dark ribbon.


Copics used: (hair) E31, E34, E37, (skin) E000, E00, E11, E04, R22, (dress) RV00, R81, R83, R85, R89, white pen (flowers and leaves) Y04, Y08, YR07, R89, G82, G99

This card has been entered into the following challenges:

Ching-Chou Kuik’s FB group – Romance

Oh my, what a wonderful surprise. My card was chosen for the Artist’s Choice Award at Ching-Chou Kuik’s blog! Thank you so much!



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.



Elephant magic

I made a Christmas card this morning and thought I’d, once again, get it added straight away. I have used a pre-coloured topper by Wild Rose Studio this time. I jazzed it up with putting glitter on top of the swirly magic, as well as adding some silver liquid pearls for an added snow effect. The flowers, purple ribbon and bows as well as the big purple pearls are all from Wild Orchid Crafts. The dark purple paper is from Kaboks, and the light purple paper used for the dies is by Lili of the Valley. The ribbon and pearly lace strip is from a local shop.  I have used various dies from Noor! design for the snowflake border and two stand alone snowflakes. They are such pretty dies!


I have decided to enter this is the design team call at Noor! design, so this bit here will be for that purpose. I am Liz and thirty-something living in Norway and I’ve been crafting since summer 2011, mostly making cards. When it comes to crafting, I mostly use my blog, but also I belong to various Facebook crafting groups and use instagram occasionally, though mostly for scenery photos I admit! Although I am on Twitter, I don’t use it very much. I have previous been on the DT team for a challenge blog, and for The Hobby House. Normally I don’t really try to apply for any design teams, but this one just felt right to apply for. One of the reasons is that I have been very pleased with swift and wonderful service provided by Noor! design, and the other is obviously that I love their designs. I mean, who wouldn’t?! I will be using these dies all the time and would love to show my work to fellow Noor! design fans. As I am not on any other DTs I would have the time required to dedicate to this one. I use both pre-coloured images and stamps I colour myself for my cards.

Here is a close up of the  Noor! design dies I used on this card:


I have used the following Noor! design products: Ice Crystal no.1, Ice Crystal no. 3 and Ice Crystal border.

This card has been entered into the following challenges:

Bunny Zoe Crafts – Snow
Creative Inspirations  – Anything Goes
Party Time Tuesdays – Anything Goes
Crafty Catz – Ribbon and/or lace
Card and scrap – Lag på lag
Crafty Ribbon – Christmas Creation with Ribbon

Thank you so much for the honour of chosing my card for top 3!




When I was making this card, I was just having fun with dies and punches really. I have used a Martha Stewart puncher to make the bottom purple flowery shape, a couple of QuicKutz dies and a doily from Papermania to layer it up. The other smaller dies are also by Martha Stewart. The friendship recipe stamp is from Lili of the Valley and the image is by Wee Stamps by Sylvia Zet which I have coloured in with copics. I purchased the pearls at a local shop and the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.


It has been ages since I entered anything in challenges, so it’s about time, I reckon! This card has been entered into the following challenge:
