9. Reindeer games

I have made quite a few Christmas cards so far this year and I am actually nearly done with them all! This is one of the cards I made for my Christmas card swaps this year.

Isn’t the image cute? It is one of my favourites from Tiddly Inks. It is called Reindeer Games.

The big decoration is by Wild Orchid Crafts, the charms are from Kort og Godt and the sentiment is from Norsk Stempelblad. I’ve also used some twice, cheesecloth, acrylic paint and frantage. The shape of the card is made with Go Kreate dies.

Obviously the arrangement on the right side is a bit heavy, but charms are a great way to counterbalance the card, and the snowflake and tree fit very well.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, (hair) BV23, BV25, BV29, (reds) R22, R24, R27, R59, (brown) E41, E42, E43, E44, E47, (grey) W2, W5, (decorations) YG61, YG63, YG67, Y19, YR16) (ear) RV00, Rv23

3. James the bear Lollipop

Throughout the month there will be non-card projects, too. I’ve had fun experimenting and trying to make new things the past couple of months. One of the things I’ve tried to make is a so-called Lollipop card. I’ve seen a few of them around and decided to make one myself. As usual I didn’t look at any tutorials, but decided to just play around to see if I could make one. I think it turned out alright, too.

The image I coloured is one of my first stamps. It’s James the Bear from Lili of the Valley where he’s carrying presents. It’s fun to make at least one Christmas project with him every year.

I’ve used papers from Maja Design, dies from Noor Design, some frantage, distress inks and white acrylic paint.

This is a side on view and a photo of how the backside looks. The sentiment stamp is from Norsk Stempelblad.

Santa’s helpers are here

On Wednesday it was snowing.

And snowing.

And snowing.

On Thursday it was raining, raining and stupidly windy.

Talk about having the Christmas spirit been and gone in a day! Thankfully it has a month to return! Hopefully some of you will get a bit of Christmas spirit with the card I am sharing on this Tiddly Fab Friday.

I’ve used Santa’s Helpers by Tiddly Inks and coloured it in with Copics. The papers are primarily by Maja Design and the sentiment is from Norsk Stempelblad. I’ve also used some cheese cloth, white frantage, grey distress inks, white acrylic paint, embossing powder (Ranger).

We need another photo, right?

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (hair) BV29, W9, E74, E77, E79, (brown) E70, E71, E74, E77, E79, (penguins) W0, W1, W2, W7, W9, Y13, Y38, YR18, (reds) R22, R24, R27, R89, (grey) C1, C3 + white gel pen

Pressies for you

Here is a card I made at the start of the year. Yes… I am that far behind in posting cards up. However, I shall try to schedule up some posts this week to try to get up to date!

I have used frantage, copics and distress ink for the effects on the image and the rest of the card. The borders are made using a Noor Design die, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the stamp is Wild Rose Studio. I wanted mostly blue and browns for the card, but as the recipient is a woman, I couldn’t help by add a dash of pink!
