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

14. Elf and glitter

Another day, another Christmas card. I am quite pleased I have managed two weeks straight now with posting new things. It feels quite nice getting caught up with the posts at the end of the year now! Today I have another clean and simple Christmas card.

This one features an elf from Make it Crafty which I have coloured up with Copics. I’ve cut it all out by hand and then afterwards drawn on the ground under his feet straight onto the card base. I’ve cut out some triangles to use as trees on glitter paper from Søstrene Grene, and used a background paper from Studio Light. The sentiment stamp is from Panduro.

Aaaand another photo!

Copics used: (hat and jacket) W1, W3, R22, R27, R59, Y13, Y19, Y38, (shoes) E43, E44, E47, C7, 100, (jumper and trousers) YG01, YG03, YG63, YG67, (hair) E25, E31, E34, E44, (skin) E000, E00, E11

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

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.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, (hair) BV21, BV25, BV29, (eyes) YG01, YG03, YG67, (clothes) R22, R24, R27, R59, W0, W2, E41, E42, E43, E44, E47

Winter Stella with her snowman in a snowglobe

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas. It’s been a while since we had a proper white one, so perhaps we get lucky this year!

This card was made for a card swap and my partner was someone in Australia who had moved there from England. I figured snow was one of the main things she would no longer get around Christmas card, hence a cold, white, snowy card! Thankfully the card made it there just fine, so now I can post it up here, yey!

I’d only made one shaker card before I made this one, and this time around I decided to make the image sort of inside the card instead of adding the shaker part as the outmost part of the card. I think it looks pretty cool like this.

The stamp is Winter Stella with her little snowman. Isn’t it supercute? It’s from Make it Crafty. I’ve used Noor Design trees and the sentiment is cut out using blue foam with a die by KaBoks.

This is how it looks with the snow inside the shaker card all over the image.

Here is a close-up of the image.
