An apple a day…

Today I have another inspirational post up on Copic Marker Norge. This time I’ve used the super cute Apple from Mo’s Digital Pencil. It is a while since I coloured her up, so it was about time I turned it into a card. It took a while to pick out the papers to go with as I’d decided to not do a CAS card this time and I wanted it to have somewhat of a country feel to it. Grey-brown, purple and red are not really colours I would just pick to make a card of, but I gave it a go and I’m very pleased with how it turned out.

The papers are by Lemoncraft and Lili of the Valley, and the sentiment is by MFT Stamps.

Friendship card

Today I am showing you a card I’ve made for Copic Marker Norge as an inspirational post. I’ve used an image as well as chipboard from Make it Crafty along with a die from Pretty Pink Posh and a sentiment from Altenew.

Here is another photo of the card. This time it is laying down flat so you can see how I decorated the inside in a matching blue so that it is visible behind the border.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E11, E04, R20, (hair) E30, E34, E25, E27, (white) W0, W1, W2, W3, (blue) B000, B00, B02, B05, B28 (I think.. it was a while ago!), (flowers) RV52, RV55, YR23, YG67

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.

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.
