James the bear is watching the snow fall

Here you can see the second Christmas card I made for March. This means I am still on track for two a month this year, phew! Barely made it with this one as well. I guess I will try to do better in April and start a bit earlier.  At least, I still had snow when I made this.. not sure I will manage to make anything once tempratures start realising summer is only a couple of months away! Oh well, I’ll try!

I went with a Lili of the Valley bear. This is possibly my very favourite bear and I love his different poses. His name is James, by the way, if you didn’t know. Lili of the Valley was one of the first stamp brands I started using, and even though they have stopped selling their rubber stamps, I still have mine from when I first got them in 2011! I’m glad they’re still doing digital stamps, as they’re great!

I’ve used Noor Design and Maja Design paper, a bit of acrylic paint and cheesecloth as well as Baker’s Twine, a Kort og Godt charm and some candi. Those are all high on my list of things I like to use to make Christmas cards.

Here is another photo where the card is laying down flat:

Purple Christmas Tilda

One of the two Christmas cards I made for March was a simple one and it features Magnolia’s Tilda. I’ve used a La-La Land Crafts christmas die and a border die by Pretty Pink Posh. I do like my cards clean and simple, and I never make enough purple Christmas cards!

Rainbow haired fairy

First Tuesday of the month again already! You know what that means, right? New Tiddly Inks challenge! I suppose my card looks like the theme is colour explosion or something, but it is in fact let’s go round! That means circular projects. They’re fun to make, right? At least I think so!

I decided to go with Fairy Tenderhearted (Tiddly Inks stamp, of course) for my card and I gave her a rainbow coloured hair and two-toned wings, with glitter! And so from there I apparently went completely crazy with the colours! I’m not sure I’ve ever used so many colours in so many places before. Fun, though, I admit!

The embossed sentiment is by My Favorite Things, the your chipboard by Make it Crafty and the birthday die by La-La Land Crafts.

Here is another photo from a different angle.

A bit of turquoise

We have a new challenge up at Copic Marker Norge and this is my inspirational card for it. On the moodboard for this month I was inspired by the colours: turquoise and white with a hint of yellow, as well the decorations and flowers. The image I chose for this is by Ching-Chou Kuik. I do love getting to make a card using my favourite colours!

I’ve used papers by Maja Design and Bazzill, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, a stamp from Noor Design to create the effect around the image which I used distress oxide ink on, a Happy Birthday stamp from My Favorite Things, and a border die from La-La Land Crafts.

Here you can see the card from a side on view. There are several elements put on foam pads to create a sense of dimension.

Here is a close-up of the flower arrangement

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (hair) E41, E42, E43, E44, (dress) BG49, BG53, BG78, G40, Y04, Y38, E97, (shadow) W0, W1, W3, W5, W7, (flowers) RV17

Birthday hippo and elephant

Happy Easter everybody. I decided to take some for myself today and make a card. The stamps I’ve used are by My Favorite Things. Aren’t they adorable? they are from the Happy Hippo og Adorable Elephants sets.

The paper I have used is by Papirdesign, the border die is by Pretty Pink Posh and the birthday die is by La-La Land Crafts.

I decided to go with another clean and simple layout. This is definitely a current favourite, as I’m sure you’ve all figured out by now. Other favourites are these darling stamps and the birthday die.

Here is another photo:
