Bringing gifts in the snow

As I mentioned earlier this month: I managed to complete my two Christmas cards this month. Here is the other one. This one was also completed on the 28th February. Got to love last-minute work, right? I decided to go with another winter themed card as they are my favourites for Christmas.

For this one I used a Magnolia stamp, various Maja Design paper, acrylic paint, candi, Memory Box and QuicKutz (Lifestyle Crafts) dies and cheese cloth.

And the side on view:

Happy birthday

Monday means it’s time for another LaLa Land Crafts inspirational project. This week our theme is birthday. I think this is my favourite LLLC stamp. Isn’t she adorable? She is called Darling Molli. Definitely one of my favourites. As usual you can find a link to all the LLLC products below the card photo.

This card is made with Maja Design papers which I’ve painted around the edges with white acrylic paint. I printed the word birthday and distressed it with the Tattered Rose colour, as that colour was a pretty good match for the card. The two butterfly dies (aren’t they pretty?!) got a body made out of pearls. The image, which is coloured in with Copic, was cut out by hand and added to the top with foam tape.

I coloured this image in during the 30 day colouring challenge on Instagram and the reason she ended up with bright pink hair is because that is what got the most suggestions when I asked. I love it. Thanks for the great suggestions!

Foxy Marci

It is Monday again and that means it is time for another inspirational post for LLLC. The theme this time around is nature.

The image is coloured in with Copics. I used my favourite red hair combination for the fox face and her coat. I think that worked out rather well. Maybe it’s time I do start using it on something other than hair, haha. I’ve used various Bazzill and Maja Design papers for the card, printed a sentiment to go with the die cut word and coloured up two candi in matching blues to the dress.

All details and links on the La-La Land products will be found at the bottom of the post, after the photos.

The butterfly stands out from the card beautifully and I’ve decorated it with a string of pearls for the body.

Here is a close-up of the colouring.

Molly with birthday cake

It is the first Tuesday of the month today. That means it’s Tiddly Tuesday and a new challenge. This time around we’d like to see you make projects using the lovely character Molly! I decided to use Molly Celebrates for this.

You know what’s funny? Because I use very little flowers on Christmas cards and have been so fond of making clean and simple cards of late, I was really stuck when I decided to add flowers. Slightly baffled by this I just sat down on the sofa to read for a while, and then when I got back and played with it, it seemed to go somewhat already. It felt rather weird just staring at the flowers and wondering what to do with them, though! haha.

The papers I’ve used on this card are all from Bazzill (plain) and Maja Design (patterned). I really do love this colour. I’ve, once again, painted the edges with white acrylic paint. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts (now closed), I coloured up some candi in matching purples and then used a sentiment by My Favourite Things (MFT Stamps) which I embossed with white.

Here is a close-up of the colouring. You can also see the die cut leaves, which are from a La-La Land Crafts die.

Copics used: (hair) E08, E18, E19, E49, E97, (skin) E00, E02, E04, E13, E15, (dress and shoes) BG70, BG72, BG75, BG78, C0, C3, C5 (cake) V12, V15, V17, Y19, E08, C0, C3 + white gel pen

Winter Molli

So, remember I said yes to making two Christmas cards for each month this year? I’m actually still on track. I finished this card in the evening on the 28th February, hahaha! I love adding a snowy effect to the winter themed cards using the acrylic paint. Previously I used to love tearing on the edges, but this is far less dusty!

The stamp is by La La Land Crafts and is called Winter Molli, and so is the tree die. Other products are papers from Maja Design, acrylic paint, Memory Box snowflakes, Baker’s Twine, Kort og Godt charm and cheese cloth.

And the side on view of the card.

Copics used: (green) YG61, YG63, YG67, G40, G99, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (hair) E41, E42, E43, E44, (brown) E71, E74, E77, (grey) C1, C3, C5
