12. Hanging around

I have another clean and simple card for you today. In March I made a card with a Some Odd Girl stamp. It was a card for a family where four of them have their birthdays close together. So I made one for them all. So when the youngest had his birthday I figured I should make a similar style card and this is what I came up with.

It features a Some Odd Girl stamp, as well and it is coloured in with Copics. The sentiment is in Swedish, and contains a play on words. I am always happy when I can make a fun sentiment like that!

It was quite fun to colour it up.

Colours used: (monky) E51, E53, E55, E57, E59, (branch) E41, E43, E44, E47, E49, (leaves and eyes) YG63, YG67, G99

11. Triangular Christmas box

Another new thing I have attempted this year is to make a triangular box. A co-worker of mine, who had bought one at a fair a while back, showed it to me and asked if I could make something similar that she could have to put a gift card in. I played around and think it turned out pretty well!

I have added a template at the bottom if you’d like to attempt to make one yourself. I’ve also added some Norwegian instructions at the bottom of the page. (For norsk tekst ang. eske-malen, se nederst i innlegget.)

First photo is a view of it from the front. I have used a lot of Maja Design paper, which I’ve painted white edges on. The sentiment is also from their papers. The glitter paper is from Søstrene Grene. I’ve also coloured and fussy cut two gingerbread from Power Poppy, and added a small Kort og Godt charm to the twine. The tree die is by Noor Design.

Here is a closer look at the colouring. You can find the list of colours I used at the bottom of the post.

With the box rotated slightly you can see that the sides have been decorated with paper on the sides also, and there is twine that ties the box together.

This photo, giving a side view, shows that I’ve also used some cheese cloth, Craftwork cards candi as well as a different Maja Design text.

The box is tired together with twine. It is easy to open and easy to tie back together.

(Informasjon på norsk lenger ned.) Here is the template. You cut at the black solid lines and score the paper on the dashed lines and then fold it all together. I have decorated it with paper slightly smaller than the measurements on the template to get a red edge around it.

The green circles are suggestions for where you add the holes. You can have them either higher up or lower down, but it is easier to have them in the middle as there is less measuring to do. As you can see from the photo above, the edge of the box isn’t straight, so then the holes would have to be in different positions on the base and on the lid.

(If you prefer inches, then you can use 12 inches (30cm), 6 inches (15cm) and 3 inches (7,5cm). Although the numbers don’t equal exactly, the numbers are similar enough to make a same size box.

I have not taken any photos of inside the box, but you can obviously decorate that also, and add a sentiment or two.

Copics used: (gingerbread) E42, E43, E44, E47, (yellow) Y13, Y19, (green) YG01, YG63, YG67, (red) R22, R24, R59, (grey) C1, C3, C9 +  a white pen

Informasjon om malen, på Norsk:

Jeg har også laget en mal. Den sorte, hele linja er hvor man kutter basen, mens den røde stiplete linja er hvor man perger. Begge sidene er like store. De grønne sirklene er hvor man kan lage hull. Du velger selv hvor du vil ha hullene, bare husk på at hvis de er mot bretten på lokket så må de være mot kanten på bunnen, og mye lenger inn (hvis du ser bildet over så skal ikke enden på den siden av boksen være rett), og motsatt.

Dekorasjonen velger man selv, men det er ikke så vanskelig å skjære ut litt mindre trekanter for å pynte med papir. Man kan også pynte inni med både papir og tekst, og det er god plass til for eksempel et gavekort.

10. Baby playing with the Christmas tree

Two weeks until Christmas and I have a very clean and simple Christmas card for you today. It features a totally adorable image I got at Make it Crafty and a text stamp from Panduro. To make the coloured layer stand out a bit more I’ve used foam tape. I think this was the best way to make the colouring stand out as the primary part of the card.

Copics used: (tree) YG03, YG67, G99, E43, E47, (decorations and pot) Y13, Y19, Y38, YR18, R22, R27, R59, E18, (boy) E000, E00, E11, W1, W3, W5, B32, B34, B37

7. Fly away – a bookmark

A week into my month of posts, so let’s have something else. What about a bookmark?

It is a very simple bookmark. The stamp is from Mo’s Digital Pencil and coloured in with Copic Markers. I like having very plain, flat bookmarks and this image is perfect as it’s so easy to have your dreams float away as you sit there reading. At least I think so. I love reading and managed to reach my moderate goal of 18 books for 2017 in November, so I guess I will up it to 20 next year.

I think I forgot to write down the colours I used for this (or I’ve just lost the paper..), but I’ll give it a good guess: (skin) E000, E11, E21, (hair) E08, E18, E19, E97, (greens) YG01, YG03, YG63, YG67, (bear) E42, E44, E47, (violets) V04, V06, V09

6. A winter card, and a sticky marker cover up

The first week of December has almost passed already. That went fast, didn’t it?! Today I have a cold, blue winter card to show you. It holds my very first no-lines colouring of a full image! (The few strands on hair I did previously hardly counts!) The lovely image is by Tiddly Inks and is called Key to my Heart. Not really a Christmas image, I know, but the dress is so pretty I wanted to make it work!

Unfortunately it nearly went very wrong! My B95 was misbehaving as I hadn’t realised it was nearly empty and when most of the image is done you don’t want to start over. So to avoid disappointment and possibly not doing another no-lines image for a while, I decided to try to save it.

And so I did. With dots. A lot of dots!

You can’t even see the sticky patch anymore!

The papers are from various places. If I recall correctly it is primarily Papirdesign, LemonCraft and Studio Light. The gorgeous snowflakes are made with a Memory Box die that appeared in my mail a couple of weeks ago from my lovely Secret Santa Sue of Tanglemouse Cards. Lucky me! It’s perfect!

I’ve also used some distress ink, frantage, twine, cheesecloth and a Panduro text stamp. The main shape of the card is made with GoKreate dies.

Do you want to see what it looked like before I decided to try to save it? Of course you do, so here it is! Very shiny and horrible right? I think it turned out pretty good in the end, though, and all I did was add loads of little dots with the various colours I had used on the dress, as well a white pen! Try it! It is far better than having to bin your colouring!

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E11, E21, (hair) E41, E42, E43, (dress) B91, B93, B95, B97, B99, (belt) C5, C7, C9, (key) Y13, Y17, YR15
