Shaker card and winter wryn

It’s Friday and it’s fab! It’s Tiddly Inks time! Winter Wryn is in my spotlight today.

I’ve done it. I’ve started making Christmas cards. But instead of doing the ‘same old’, I decided to have a go at a shaker card for the first time. As usual I didn’t follow a tutorial, as I think it’s more fun to try stuff on my own. I do like to make things awkward for myself, right?

It is not perfect. I decided to double layer the foam tape and had to cut it by hand so the thickness isn’t the same on both layers. This means that the little stars I used got stuck around the side and it looks like I’d made a frame with them as well. It works. It looks great. But it wasn’t intentional, haha!

The ‘god jul’ die is from Kaboks, the flowers from The Hobby House and Wild Orchid Cards, Martha Stewart made the puncher, the white candy is from Craftwork Card (I coloured two of them with YG67), and the paper is by Maja Design. Oh and the stars in the shaker card? That is just some confetti I had laying about. In a bag that is, not all over! I will have to get something that looks like snow for the next one.

Here you can see the stars being all over:

Copics used: (red) R24, R27, R29, R89, (snowman) C1, C3, C5, (hat) C5, C7, C9, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (hair) E41, E42, E43, E44, E47

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

White winter Wryn

Another Tiddly Inks Christmas card from me today. I used Winter Wryn again, and I am sticking to the same kind of theme I did when I last shared a card using this image. (You can have a look here if you’d like.) I went for a red outfit this time and a whiter card. It seemed like the perfect card to share today as I got featured for my other card over at Copic in the Craft Room. What an honour! I am so chuffed!

The dies are from Noor Design and Tim Holtz and everything is, as always, coloured in with Copics.

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!
