A wee frosty snowman

It’s snowing today. That’s a pretty perfect backdrop for the current theme at Copic Marker Norge: Winter.

A couple of months ago I got a semi-challenge to colour up a Wee Stamps image. As it’s been a while since I’ve coloured one of hers, at least that have ended up here on the blog, I decided it was time. I chose this adorable snowman. I’ve used some Martha Stewart punchers, Noor Design and Maja Design papers, distress ink and Live and Love Crafts lace.

Here is another photo.

Warm snowman hugs

Another inspirational card now that Christmas is drawing nearer. My first this year in the more traditional colours of red and white. I don’t normally keep my cards this white. It was a bit of a challenge to try to keep the white reasonably white for a change as I wanted to have just a small contrast in the shading of the white. In fact, I used far less copics than I usually do! The stamp is by Lili of the Valley and their stuff is now available as digital stamps so I have a feeling I’ll acquire more of theirs pretty soon! The dies are from Noor Design and the lace from Live and Love Crafts, it is definitely my favourite lace.. can you tell? Heh

Winter snowman

Christmas is coming up so fast! I haven’t done any Christmas cards today, but this is one I did yesterday! It is for the new Art by Mi Ran Facebook group challenge for December. Our theme is Winter. Yes, it was my idea. I love winter cards so much. Can you tell? Heh. Besides, it was snowing the other day, so I had to make another snowman card!

I used the super cute Hello Mr. Snowman, again. And yes, I did it in blue this time, too… I coloured it all in with copics. And then I went mad adding snow with a white pen. I made trees and the santa with reindeer using Noor Design dies. The paper is also from them. The lace I got at Live and Love Crafts, whereas the snowflake puncher is by Martha Stewart. The snowflakes are sparkling!

Winter Wryn

Tuesday is Tiddly Inks Challenge day! That means today we have a new challenge up! I absolutely love winter and Christmas cards, so obviously I am loving the new Holly Jolly theme! Ideally the colour scheme should be green and gold, but I am useless in adding gold to my cards so I chose my favourite: blue! I chose the awesome Winter Wryn for my project. There are lots of great winter and Christmas ones to choose from in the Tiddly Inks shop, so it was hard to pick! Good thing I need to make lots of Christmas cards, eh? heh.

Lots of dies are from Noor Design, including the reindeer and santa one that I recently won in a candy. Yes! I won! I didn’t believe it at all, heh. I love it though. It is perfect to make the card christmassy. The border snowflake die is from Tim Holtz, and as I said, the rest of them are Noor Design ones which I jazzed up either by layering them, using fancy papers, or adding snow and dots! The paper is Papirdesign and Pion.

Hello Mr. Snowman

My holiday is half way through! What would be more fitting than a card filled with snow, eh? I mean, it couldn’t be further away from the weather atm in Australia. It is time for a new Art by Mi Ran‘s Facebook group’s Anything Goes challenge, with bling as the optional theme. I was going to opt out of the bling part, but I changed my mind at the end. I used Mi Ran‘s gorgeous Hello, Mr. Snowman for this.

As usual I have coloured it in with copics. On the sky background I coloured it in with blue and painted over with white acrylic paint, just for fun! I used the paint around the edges on all of the backgrounds as well.

The dies are by Noor Design and Tim Holtz. I also used a Martha Stewart puncher. A few cones and 5 Wild Orchid Crafts roses with a bit of Live and Love Crafts lace made up most of the rest!
