13. Christmas tags

Have you ever tried to make your own Christmas tags? These are the first I’ve tried making. Siv kindly made me some tag blanks that I could decorate and I’ve had fun doing it. It is a great way to use left over scrapping papers, that’s for sure.

 

The dies here are by Noor Design and the text on the red is from Maja Design paper and on the blue is a Norsk Stempelblad stamp. The red flowers are by Papirdesign.

 

The text die here is by Kaboks.

Here is another photo of all three together

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.

6. A winter card, and a sticky marker cover up

The first week of December has almost passed already. That went fast, didn’t it?! Today I have a cold, blue winter card to show you. It holds my very first no-lines colouring of a full image! (The few strands on hair I did previously hardly counts!) The lovely image is by Tiddly Inks and is called Key to my Heart. Not really a Christmas image, I know, but the dress is so pretty I wanted to make it work!

Unfortunately it nearly went very wrong! My B95 was misbehaving as I hadn’t realised it was nearly empty and when most of the image is done you don’t want to start over. So to avoid disappointment and possibly not doing another no-lines image for a while, I decided to try to save it.

And so I did. With dots. A lot of dots!

You can’t even see the sticky patch anymore!

The papers are from various places. If I recall correctly it is primarily Papirdesign, LemonCraft and Studio Light. The gorgeous snowflakes are made with a Memory Box die that appeared in my mail a couple of weeks ago from my lovely Secret Santa Sue of Tanglemouse Cards. Lucky me! It’s perfect!

I’ve also used some distress ink, frantage, twine, cheesecloth and a Panduro text stamp. The main shape of the card is made with GoKreate dies.

Do you want to see what it looked like before I decided to try to save it? Of course you do, so here it is! Very shiny and horrible right? I think it turned out pretty good in the end, though, and all I did was add loads of little dots with the various colours I had used on the dress, as well a white pen! Try it! It is far better than having to bin your colouring!

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E11, E21, (hair) E41, E42, E43, (dress) B91, B93, B95, B97, B99, (belt) C5, C7, C9, (key) Y13, Y17, YR15

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

2. Fly away

Day two of the daily posts through December is here. This time it is a birthday card. A clean and simple one at that.

I’ve used a Mo’s Digital Pencil image and Copic Markers. The three dies are from papirdesign (gratulerer), Kaboks (the 1 is a cut off M ;)) and Linda Design (border) I got at Papirgleder. I drew in some grass at the bottom to make it look like he was indeed flying away.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E21, E04 (purple) V09, V12, V15, V17, (bear) E42, E44, (grey) C1, C3, C5, (grass) YG01, YG03, YG13, YG67, G99
