Purple Christmas and teddy bears

Christmas is upon us, or well it’s Boxing Day already! I thought I would show you two more Christmas cards I’ve made this year. I’ve decided to add them both to the same post as they sort of match nicely as both are purple with James bear from Lili of the Valley and sentiments from Papirdesign

And here is the second one.

Copics used: (teddy) E41, E42, E43, E44, (purple) V12, V15, V17, (ground) W0, W1, W3, (grey) C1, C3, (green) YG01, YG13, YG63, YG67, (yellow) Y11, Y13, Y17, Y19

Happy Hedgehogs

Today there is a new challenge over at Copic Marker Norge and it is our challenge number 100! That is quite a milestone! As usual this year it is a moodboard challenge where autumn and orange are the main themes. For my card, I opted for the Happy Hedgehogs by MFT Stamps, and I absolutely love them! The background was done with distress inks in shades of yellow, orange and red.

And from the side as usual.

Copics used: E19, E41, E42, E43, E70, E71, E74, E77, E79, R20, R22, Y13, Y17, Y19, YR04, YR07, YR09, YG63, YG67

LLLC: Santa’s Helper Baby Luka

Blue is my favourite colour for Christmas, so of course one of the new release cards had to be blue! I used the cute Santa’s Helper Baby Luka with some Maja Design Paper, distress inks and Copics with a dash of white acrylic paint. La-La Land Crafts has some really super new Christmas products and you can see which ones I used at the bottom of the post.

LLLC – Just for You stamped dress

I’ve made a card where I tried something new. I decided to stamp the dress of the adorable little girl because the background stamp seemed so perfect for a dress! The stamp set I’ve used is Just for You from the new La-La Land Crafts release. I absolutely love this new background stamp!

To get this effect on the dress, I first stamped the background stamp in the colour I wanted the dress, and then I stamped the girl over the top of it. Then I fussy cut out the dress before I used my Copics to draw in some shadowed areas on the dress. Afterwards I glued it onto the girl stamp I’d started colouring up and voila!

The background stamp is stamped with a deep red Distress Ink, whereas the dress is stamped with a yellow shade of Distress Oxide Ink.

Stamps:
Just for You
Paperdoll Marci – Happy (also the sentiment)

Dies:
Happy Birthday
Two Butterflies
Pierced Scalloped Circles

Copics used: (skin) E13, E15, E27, (hair) BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, (dress and shoes) Y13, Y19.

LLLC – Just for You

La-La Land Crafts is out with a new release and it’s awesome! There are two new types of products! Both clear stamps AND background stamps! How cool is that?!

First off I will be showing you one of the background stamps with its coordinating stamps. It is called Just for You. The flowers, the pot and the sentiment all come with the new gingham background stamp! It’s such a great set and I really love it. I decided to make a clean and simple card where I embossed the sentiment in white.
