LLLC: Deck the Halls

Ok, so I am a little bit late to the party this time. Life took a rather unexpected turn a couple of weeks ago leaving me in a bit of a daze and all projects were put on hold until I felt like doing anything with it. All my card making things were as they were on the table and the floor and although I had completed a few cards for the new release, I never got a chance to blog about them. Until now.

La-La Land Crafts had the most adorable Christmas release out this month. I love the hippos so much. Who doesn’t need Christmas hippos, right?! They have some cute other stamps, too, and I’ll show some of those in posts the coming days along with some really cool dies. Besides, we all know by now that I love Christmas, right?

Tiddly Inks donut

Time to show off another Tiddly Inks card! Isn’t Molly the sweetest? Love her donut and her hair!

I’ve used paper by Lawn Fawn, dies from La-La Land Crafts and text stamps by Huldra Stempler.

Here is a photo from the side.

And here it is down flat.

Party girls

Someone special had her birthday recently and this seemed to be the perfect image for her birthday card. I used one of my favourite stamps by Stamping Bella and coloured it in with copic as usual. If you’d like to get a similar glittery effect as I have on the dresses, then the technique is the same as I’ve got in the sparkly dress tutorial (which you can find a link to in the tutorial section).

I’ve used a die from Papirdesign, and text stamp by Huldra Stamps. The card is kept mostly clean and simple, just the way I like it.

Here is card laid down flat.

Copics used: (girl on the left) E41, E42, E43, E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, B0, R22, R24, R27, R29, R59, (girl on the right) E08, E18, E19, E49, E97, E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, RV52, RV55, RV66, B0

Summer is best at the beach

1st July.

Goodness… how fast the year is flying by!

Anyway, it is time for some midway inspiration at Copic Marker Norge.  Once again it is a moodboard challenge and I’ve been inspired by the summer and beach feeling along with the colours. The stamp I chose is by Saturated Canary and Krista Smith. The paper is by Maja Design and the chipboard is, as usual, by Make it Crafty.

Here is another photo of the card.

Copics used: (hair) BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (swimsuit) BG15, BG49, BG57, BG78, (towel) V09, V12, V15, V17

Christmas is less than half a year away

So apparently June is nearly over. I’ve just finished my two Christmas cards for the month, phew, and the hot temperatures are back. A slightly awkward mix, I know! I can’t believe how fast this month has passed, but oh well. Let’s have a look at that card. It is very plain and I’ve used a Mo’s Digital Pencil image together with a sentiment stamp from Norsk Stempelblad.

A side on view as usual.

Aaaaand a close-up of the colouring!

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) BV23, BV25, BV29, (brown) E70, E71, E74, E77, E79, (green) YG61, YG63, YG67, (blue) B32, B34, B37, (ground) W1, W3, (background) BV000, B60
