5. CAS Winter Wryn

Day 5 holds my inspiration card for the newest Tiddly Inks challenge. It is called Be Merry. We would love to see loads of fabulous entries over the next few weeks!

I used the Winter Wryn image for this. The stamp also comes with a snowman, but I decided to keep it simple for this one. The paper is  from Papirdesign, the text stamp from Norsk Stempelblad, and I have used black embossing glitter and black glitter paper. I’ve also made embossed snowflakes on the white part of the card, but it was near impossible to get them to show in the photo!

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, (hair) E41, E42, E43, E44, (red) R22. R24, R27, R89, (grey) W0, W2

1. Winter Stella’s winter scene in traditional Christmas colours

Today is the first of December. I have decided I’m going to try to make one post here every day for the whole month! I certainly have enough to catch up on posting, so hopefully that will help me get caught up somewhat! It won’t be only Christmas and not only cards! Nor will they all have colouring.

Some of my projects will correspond with posts elsewhere, like this one. Copic Marker Norge is having an advent calendar and today is one of my days!

This card was made for a Secret Santa card swap in Make it Crafty.

The stamp is Winter Stella from Make it Crafty and is coloured in with copics. You can find the list of colours at the bottom. I have used various papers from Maja Design; the sentiment is from one of those papers, too. One of the dies is from Magnolia and the rest is from Noor Design. The glittery paper is from Søstrene Grene and I’ve used white acrylic paint on a lot of the elements. The flowers are by Papirdesign.

This is what it looks like with its matching tag

And here is a close-up of the colouring for a change.

Dandelion Dream – CCK guest designer

I was so very lucky and was chosen as the winner of the guest designer spot after the May challenge at Ching-Chou Kuik’s challenge blog! So here is my card for the July Challenge of Sparkles and Shine! I am not very good at using glitter and such, so it was quite the challenge! Thank you for having me!

Guest Designer

The image I chose is Dandelion Dream, by Ching-Chou Kuik, obviously. I absolutely love these images and it was hard to choose something that I thought might be good with the theme. Everything is coloured with copics. I’ve added lots of pink and yellow dots with liquid pearls for extra shine (which is hard to capture in a photo) and used silver rhinestones as the centre of the dandelions.

All the flowers are by Wild Orchid Craft, apart from the purple berry looking thing which is by Live and Love Crafts. I’ve used a ton of glitter glue and papers from First Edition Papers, Lili of the Valley and Papirdesign. The sentiment is by Pink Pettycoat and the butterflies from a Martha Stewart puncher. Lastly, the shiny pink circles are candi from Craftwork Cards.

I am terrible at trying to take photos of something shiny or sparkly, therefore I have taken quite a few, with different light sources, and instead of just picking one I’ve decided to share four of the photos. I think it’s a good example to show how different light sources can make the photo look different as well.

This first one shows the colours best, but a bit heavy in contrast. Daylight and flash.

The second photo shows the sparkles a bit better, but the colours are also duller. I used the camera on my phone for this.

This photo is truer to the colour of the card, but it doesn’t show the sparkles and shine as good as the other photos. Lightbulbs and flash.

And lastly, here is a darker photo to show off the sparkles even better! Daylight, no flash.

Copics used: (hair) E51, E53, E43, E44, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, (dress and wings) V99, RV00, RV02, RV04, Y04, Y08, YR02, (greens) YG03, YG97, G94.

Frozen inspired

I admit it: I have scheduled up a few posts. I thought I’d grab hold of that mojo for blogging and use it while it lasted as it’s tended to only last an hour every few weeks as of late, heh.

This is a card I made in late November for a young girl. It is frozen inspired, as the colours may suggest, and as she is a December baby it seemed like a good idea with a winter theme. I used a Saturated Canary image and coloured it in with copics. I added sparkles to the wings and used both frantage and glitter around the various parts of the card. The border die is Tim Holtz, and the punches are by Martha Stewart. All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Colourful party

Before I made this card I was told it should be colourful and give a party feeling. So I had to use this pre-coloured image by Lili of the Vally. I think it’s a fun one! I used a colourful background with shiny silver text as well as a lot of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts which I added glitter to. I also added glitter to the letters in the name and used lots of varied colours on rhinestones.
