Tiny snowman for Christmas

Guess what!? I have finally updated the overview page for this with all cards I’ve added on the blog up until this one. Boy that took some time. I hadn’t realised I’d made quite that many! If you’d like to take a look, then you can view it here.

Time to show you one of the Christmas card I made at the end of August! I’m still on track for two a month, but I don’t think I will be too eager to make many in December. I feel a bit Christmassed out! Anyway. I decided on a grey, green and purple combination for this, and kept it simple like I have recently.

The stamp is by C.C. Designs and I love it! I’ve combined it with some glitter card stock, La-La Land Crafts Christmas and banner dies, Maja Design paper and some transparent Nuvo Drops.

Copics used: E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, E70, E71, E74, E77, E79, V09, V12, V15, V17, W1, W3, YG61, YG63, YG67

Konfirmasjonskort

I have made a confirmation card for a boy. I opted out of using a coloured image this time around and instead I went with one of the prints from Maja Design. All the background papers are also Maja Design. I used some blue and white twine, a guitar charm from Kort og Godt and some chipboard stars by Papirdesign that matched the colours rather well. The inside was decorated with a pocket for money or a gift certificate on one side and a space for writing on the other side.

29. The forest

I have an imageless card to show you today. It was made for someone who loves the outdoor and the forest, so I decided to go with a green and brown theme and use loads of cut out trees. The tree die is by Noor Design. I’ve used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts, as well as lace from LLC. The main paper here I believe is Pion.

And another funky angle photo!

19. Girl eating gingerbread

I have had fun trying out some new stamp brands this December, as well as revisiting some old ones I haven’t used in quite a while! On this post I’m showing off a card I made for a secret santa swap using something I’ve never tried before, a C. C. Designs stamp! This adorable little girl has just taken a bite out of her gingerbread! Love it!

It’s been coloured up with copics, but I bet you knew that already. I’ve used various papers from Bazzill, Papirdesign, Panduro, Maja Design and Søstrene Grene. There is a bit of cheese cloth, Craftwork Cards’ card candi, acrylic paint, twine and a Kort og Godt charm. The main shape of the card is made with a Go Kreate XXL die and the snowflakes are made with a Memory Box die. I kept the card reasonably simple without a lot of embellishments, just loads of papers! Oh and the sentiment is from a Norsk Stempelblad stamp.

And here is the usual funky angle photo!

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.
