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.

Cake? Did someone say cake?!

Maybe there’s been too many Christmas cards on my blog lately. I can assure you that there are plenty more to come at least. So why not break it up a little with a cake? A massively huge chocolate cake at that.

The image is by Mo’s Digital Pencil and to no one’s surprise it was coloured in with Copic markers. It ended up as yet another CAS card.

This is how the card looks when stood up, open.

Here it is laying down. I added the strip of paper with printed text just on the side inside the card so the inside part is slightly wider than the front is.

At a different angle as usual! And a little closer…

Christmas Fairy Holly

I got challenged. Big time. I am a sucker for challenges. Elin wanted me to colour up a specific Mo Manning image, in no-lines. Christmas Fairy Holly. Elin is on the Mo’s Digital Pencil design team and told me she’d never seen this particular image coloured with no lines. No pressure, then… right…

I had tried no-lines twice before. I stayed well clear of anything that resembled complicated, and only coloured images that I had coloured with lines previously. So this was quite the opposite as I had barely even seen the image before and it has some quite small details.

At 8% opacity I, for some unknown reason, decided that it would be a good idea to colour it in the evening. Yeah, don’t follow my lead there! There were times where I could barely see anything at all! A couple of times I got my phone out to use the flashlight to see what on earth I was supposed to colour, haha!

But it went ok, I think. I need a lot more practice with no-lines colouring, though.

I used paper from Maja Design and Lemon Craft as well as a sentiment from Norsk Stempelblad.

Look at that tiny, tiny, tiny snow globe! I have no idea how I managed to make its contents look half decent. I mean, the nip on the Copics aren’t exactly thin! In fact, I am really quite pleased how the snow globe turned out. Not sure I want to try that again, though!

Copics used: (face) E000, E00, E11, E21, E57, RV23, (hair) E41, E42, E43, (dress) R22, R24, R27, R59, YR15, Y11, Y13, Y19, (wings and shoes) YG61, YG63, YG67, G40, G82, (bells) C1, C3, C5, (snow globe) E55, E57, W3, YG61, YG67, G40 + white gel pen

A Tiddly wedding

Tiddly Inks is due with a new challenge! This time around we’d like to see projects with the theme of Friends and Family.

I decided to go with a wedding card. I mean… there is no secret that I love the Tiddly Inks wedding images! This one was out this summer and I think it might be my new favourite for wedding cards. Isn’t it lovely? It is called Garden Wedding. And as always, it’s been coloured in with copics. You can find the colours I used at the bottom of the post.

Along with Pion Design paper, I’ve used various bits from Wild Orchid Crafts (ribbon and flowers), Memory Box (hearts) and I think the butterflies might be Noor Design.

And another photo…

CAS Christmas card with Stella

So my thing this year for Christmas cards seems to be CAS and white. A lot of white and a bit of glitter. For this card I’ve used an adorable image, called Winter Stella, from Make it Crafty which my sister so kindly handcut for me. A small white border has been left around the image as I thought it looked nicer that way, apart from around her feet. That is because I wanted to draw the shadow on the card base itself and not have it as a part of the coloured image.

The sentiment means “Christmas greeting from us to you” and is by Norsk Stempelblad.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E21, E04, (hair) BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, (jacket and shoes) R22, R24, R27, R59, (dress and bottom of the hat) E41, E43, E44, E47, (hat and scarf) YG01, YG03, YG63, YG67, W0, W1, W2, (ground) W5, W3, W2, W1, W0 + white gel pen
