Blue Santa-Wryn with reindeer

It’s the middle of the month so we are ready for a new challenge at Copic Marker Norge. This time it is one of my favourite themes: blue Christmas! You have until middle of January to enter.

I have made a plain card this time around. I like my Christmas cards to be reasonably plain this year as you might have figured out already! The image is by Tiddly Inks, and is one of my favourite images for Christmas cards. It is called Reindeer Games. I’ve coloured it in with copics, but not the usual combinations. Both the blues and the colours I used for the hair are new copics I hadn’t used before. I like them!

The background is made with a snowy background paper to which I added white embossed snowflakes. I added the same snowflakes around the card using blue glitter embossing which I also used on the text stamp, which, by the way, is by Norsk Stempelblad and means “Santa hug”.

And another photo, because why not!

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (hair) E71, E74, E77, (reindeer) E41, E43, E44, E47, C3, C5, (outfit) B32, B34, B37, B99, C3, C5, (bells) Y19, YR18, (ground) C3, C5 + white pen

Santa’s Helpers

The latest Tiddly Inks challenge is also a Christmas one, with the theme Merry Berry. Reds being the keyword. So I finally caved in and did a red instead of a blue Christmas card!

I used Pion papers, Live and Love Crafts lace, Wild Orchid Crafts Flowers and coloured Santa’s Helpers in with Copics.

Hope you’re all having a wonderful Christmas time.

Santa Wreaths

Good evening! Time for another Christmas card. Only two weeks to go, can you imagine? I guess this means that I will be doing my Christmas shopping the last minute this year as well. Oh well, there is always next year to improve in, right? heh

The card today is made with an image from one of Lily of the Valley pre-coloured pads. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the punched border and branches are made with Martha Stewart puncher! As usual I never remember where the paper is from… Sorry!

Spring Christmas

Let’s face it. Spring is on hiatus, so a Christmas card feels just as appropriate as a spring card and we’re nearly in April already! I am loving my stay in London. We spent last night at the Savoy Theatre for the ‘Let It Be’ musical and it was very good indeed! Although I admit I loved my little shopping spree in the M&Ms world afterwards as well, heh.

Anyway, card! This one is made with blank white card, purple card and pion papers. The image is from Inkido and the ribbon is from a local shop, as are the purple pearls I believe. As always, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the branches are made with a Martha Stewart puncher. I cannot recall where the snow crystal is from unfortunately.
