Merry Christmas everyone!

Today is the day we celebrate Christmas in Norway and I have the honour of showing off a project for the last day of the Christmas calendar over at Copic Marker Norge. I spent forever and a half to decide on what to colour and eventually decided to combine two images from Mo’s Digital Pencil (singing elf Brynn and singing elf Wynn) and colour it up with no-lines. It went great until the very end where a great red blob threatened to ruin the image. Thankfully my stubbornness came in handy and I managed to fix it up reasonably well, so I don’t think you can see it too well know without knowing it’s there.

I’ve used paper from Papirdesign, a sentiment from Kort og Godt and then twine and ribbon and lace and a charm as well from various places.

And with this card I’d like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

One more day to go here in Norway and it’ll be Christmas! Today I’m going to show you the card I made for my secret santa over at Copic Marker Norge. I coloured up a Magnolia stamp. I used some Papirdesign paper and painted the edges with white acrylic paint. The sentiment is from Huldra Designstudio.

Teddy bear Christmas tree

Another Christmas card from me today, and it is using another Lili of the Valley image. I think this bear is super cute and also fun! I’ve framed it with a red patterned paper from Papirdesign and a sentiment by Huldra Designstudio.

Here is another photo of the card with a close up of the colouring.

Christmas hedgehogs

I made this card for the December issue of a Norwegian card making and scrapbooking magazine called Ett Trykk. I used the super-cute hedgehogs from MFT Stamps along with some distress inks and Make it Crafty chipboard. It had to be blue, of course, as I love making blue winter/Christmas cards.

It’s been a lot of clean and simple Christmas cards this year, and by a lot I mean that most of them have been CAS! So, I decided it was time for something different and proper traditional colours. It is my turn to show off something in the Christmas Calendar over at Copic Marker Norge today, and this is what I decided to make. It is perfectly reasonable to decided to make something with loads of layers that takes longer than CAS does when you have hardly any time at all, right?

Anyway, I used this adorable stamp from Lili of the Valley. I have a feeling I’ll colour it up again before Christmas, if I can only decide on which colour to use for it! I combined it with lace I got from Live and Love Crafts, Papirdesign paper and sentiment. Then I used some acrylic paint around the edges of the layers and some twine along with a gingerbread charm. And it’s obviously coloured up with Copics as usual. You can find the colours listed at the bottom of this post.

Here is a photo from the side you can see how the card is stood on a surface.

And another photo of the card laying down.
