Baby girl in buggy

I seem to very rarely get to make baby cards for baby girl; it’s always boys, boys and more boys. Then suddenly I got asked to do two almost at the same time. As with the other card I’ve chosen to hide the name of the baby.

The image I’ve used on this is by Wee Stamps. Isn’t it cute? I’m quite happy with the shading on it and tried to keep it soft and simple. I made a border around the image using flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, some cheese close and punched out some leaves and butterflies with Martha Stewart punchers.

Here is another photo of the card laying down

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (hair) E53, E55, E57, E59, (buggy) RV00, R81, R83, R85, R89, W0, W1, W3, W5, W7, 100, (bird) B000, B81, Y00, Y04, Y17

Baby girl

I was asked to make a card for a christening. I’d previously made one for this lady so wanted to make this one similar. To the right here you can see the boy card I made previous that this one is made to match.

The image I’ve chosen is by Mo’s Digital Pencil and is coloured in with copics. Flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts, and the lace is from LLC as well. I am pleased with how the cards are reasonably similar, but yet a little bit different. I’ve deliberately hidden the name as I don’t like names of people showing on my cards in case they don’t want it displayed.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, R20, (hair) E51, E53, E55, E57, (dress) C1, C3, C5, RV00, R81, R83

Owl you

Guess what I did at the weekend! I finally took the first two out of the series to become a copic colouring master. The course was held at Bikuben with Elizabeth as our fantastic instructor. It was fun to get some new tips and see some of her colouring in person. She’s great, really! Cannot wait for the next two courses in May where there more advanced techniques that I know little to nothing about.

Today we have a new challenge over at the Copic Marker Norge blog. This time we’re playing bingo! If you count the flowers and feathers on the image itself then I’ve covered all the squares of the bingo card giving me a full house. Yey!

The papers I’ve used are Pion, the sentiment Lili of the Valley, the image (which is obviously coloured with copics) is by Ching-Chou Kuik. I am so happy with how that turned out. One of my favourites, actually, I think. Not often I am this happy with an image the first time I colour it! Oh, the cute little butterflies are from Noor Design.

Copics used are: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, R20, R22, (hair) E53, E555, E57, (flowers) R81, R85, RV17, R89, G82, G99, YG03, (owl) W2, W3, W5, E55, E57, (background) B0000, B000, B00, B02

Lucy Loo

Apparently it is already mid-October! That went fast, didn’t it? I really need to get cracking on my Christmas cards methinks.

Copic Marker Norge is hosting a new challenge, rough and tough. Not my cup of tea, to be honest, but when you’re on the design team it’s a bit hard to get out of it hahaha. So, I went out of my comfort zone and coloured up a cool girl in a larger format than usual and made a CAS card out of it. Predominately it was the size of the image and the close up that is a new adventure. I haven’t coloured so much hair on one image before, at least not of this size. It was fun though, you should try also if you haven’t!

I played around more with my copics for the background and made some pink splashes using a lot of the colourless blender. And the image? That’s Lucy Loo from The East Wind.

Rosa sløyfe hos CMN

Copic Marker Norge has made an annual event of contributing to the breast cancer awareness month of October. The DT have all made cards to sell for this event, and this post is for my contribution. The rest of the text on the page will be in Norwegian, but if you are interested in purchasing the card by contributing to this great cause, contact me and I shall provide the required information in English for you.

Da er det atter oktober og Rosa Sløyfe aksjon til inntekt for brystkreftforskning. Hos CMN ønsker vi også i år å markere dette ved å selge kortene våre til 100kr – og oppfordre alle til å gjøre det samme. Pengene kan settes inn på CMN Designteam sin innsamlingsside. Her finner du også informasjonen om hvordan du går frem for å kjøpe et eller flere av kortene vi har for salg.

Vi tar selvfølgelig også imot donasjoner fra de som ønsker å delta uten å lage/kjøpe kort.

I 2015 var det Nina som sto for innsamlingen hos oss, og hun fikk inn 1500kr! Denne gangen er det Kjersti som ordner i stand. Det er mange kort og vi håper dere har lyst til å være med også i 2016!

Kortet jeg selger som er et nytt prosjekt til akkurat denne begivenheten:
