29. The forest

I have an imageless card to show you today. It was made for someone who loves the outdoor and the forest, so I decided to go with a green and brown theme and use loads of cut out trees. The tree die is by Noor Design. I’ve used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts, as well as lace from LLC. The main paper here I believe is Pion.

And another funky angle photo!

27. Gingerbread girl on a lollipop card

Time for another lollipop card. I decided to make this one in green with a bit of gold, white and brown. Maja Design and LemonCraft papers with a dash of acrylic paint, some Memory Box snowflakes, distress ink, frantage and card candi. The lovely little chipboard is by Make it Crafty which I coloured with the same YGs as the clothes on the little girl and the cute stamp is by C. C. Designs.

Copics used: (green) YG61, YG63, YG67, YG99, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (brown) E71, E74, E77, E79, (grey/white) C1, C3, (hair and gingerbreadman) E41, E42, E43, E44.

23. CAS card with Magnolia

It has happened. Not only did I colour up a Magnolia image this month, but I did it twice! As some of you know, I haven’t exactly been eager to colour up any of these, but now that I have I realise it didn’t end up as the complete disaster I had imagined! That is good, right?!

I decided to keep this card very simple. I used some gorgeous Maja Design papers and some glitter paper from Søstrene Grene. Last week my order of chipboard from Make it Crafty finally arrived so I was able to put them on a card for this Christmas. I coloured the word christmas up with the same greens that I used on the girl’s jacket and I think the text looks fantastic! I’m so glad I bought some!

As usual the image was coloured up with Copics and you can find the list of colours below. I cut the image out by freehand and then I drew on the ground around her feet straight onto the card blank as I really quite like how that looks!

 

Here is a close-up of the girl.

Copics used: E000, E00, E04, E21, R20, (hair) E25, E27, E29, E34, E41, (reds) R22, R24, R27, R59, (greens) YG61, YG63, YG67, G99, (grey) W1, W2, W3, (shoes) E71, E74, E77, E79, (ground effect) W0, W1, W2, W3, W5, W7

8. Friendship

Another colouringless card today for day eight. The main focal point of the card is a text stamp from Papirdesign that I was so lucky to win on Elin‘s blog. It is a lovely text about friendship.

I have used various papers, I think they may be Pion this time, to which I have added white acrylic paint. I really do love that effect. The lace I got at Live and Love Craft, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and The Hobby House and I have used dies from Memory Box and Precious Marieke.

Tall cake

I’ve been enjoying colouring up images by Mo’s Digital Pencil the past couple of weeks. This tall cake one I bought specifically to use for a couple of birthday cards I had coming up. Isn’t she the best?!

For the cake my sister insisted I needed to have some glitter. I used mostly transparent glitter, but with a bace layer of R00 and R12. As you can see from the colour list below, you don’t need to use a lot of Copics to colour up a pretty image and make it into a card. This time I stuck with just 2 colours for most of it, sometimes 3 if I was colouring up bigger areas. It was fun colouring up a lighter image again after the very bright contrast ones I’ve done in the past few blog posts!

I’ve used a fair few dies on this card: butterfly and leaf die by Precious Marieke, border die by La-La Land, alphabet die by Kaboks and gratulerer by Papirdesign. The flowers are as usual by Wild Orchid Crafts. And I used a bit of white acrylic paint around the edges of most elements.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (hair) E25, E29, E31, (clothes) W1, W3, YG01, YG03, YG67, (cake) E41, E43, R00, R12, Y13, YG16, (plate) C1, C3
