Winter hugs

It is time for some mid-way inspiration at Copic Marker Norge and this is my contribution. We are trying something new for our challenges: playing with moodboards! Winter and chill and forest and snow is how I interpreted the moodboard.

I decided on a Ching-Chou Kuik image which I coloured in with Copics. The papers are Maja Design and I think they are my all time favourites. I love them!

Another photo from a different angle where it is easier to see the layers.

1. Winter Stella’s winter scene in traditional Christmas colours

Today is the first of December. I have decided I’m going to try to make one post here every day for the whole month! I certainly have enough to catch up on posting, so hopefully that will help me get caught up somewhat! It won’t be only Christmas and not only cards! Nor will they all have colouring.

Some of my projects will correspond with posts elsewhere, like this one. Copic Marker Norge is having an advent calendar and today is one of my days!

This card was made for a Secret Santa card swap in Make it Crafty.

The stamp is Winter Stella from Make it Crafty and is coloured in with copics. You can find the list of colours at the bottom. I have used various papers from Maja Design; the sentiment is from one of those papers, too. One of the dies is from Magnolia and the rest is from Noor Design. The glittery paper is from Søstrene Grene and I’ve used white acrylic paint on a lot of the elements. The flowers are by Papirdesign.

This is what it looks like with its matching tag

And here is a close-up of the colouring for a change.

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.

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

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
