Black, white and more cake

It is time for a new challenge over at Copic Marker Norge. As usual, our theme of the month is Anything Goes, and the DT have been challenged to make their projects on a certain topic. This time it is black and white, or sepia. I’ve opted for a clean and simple black and white card. I’ve used a stamp from Mo’s Digital Pencil, text stamps from Neat and Tangled and MFT Stamps and a die cut from La-La Land Crafts. I’ve drawn in the borders to have an extra design element on my card, which I decided to make as a bit of a wider rectangular than I usually do.

Copics used: N0, N1, N3, N5, N7, N9

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.

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!

Colouring video: Got the Wreath

December is here and that means that Copic Marker Norge is starting off the annual Christmas Calendar event. The first one out this year is… me! I’ve made a colouring tutorial for the first day. In the video below you can see how I’ve coloured up the Got the Wreath stamp by Mo’s Digital Pencil. Right now (through 12th December 2018) Mo’s having a discount as well. Read more about that here.

So, here’s the video. The audio for this one is in English.

Here is the card I made with the finished colouring. The patterned paper and the sentiment are both from Papirdesign.

Dwarf with empty beer

I am terrible at making cards for men, to say the least…  but I kind of like this one with its bright blue and purple to match the image I’d coloured up.

I have used a Mo’s Digital Pencil stamp which I’ve coloured in with Copics, some Snip Art chipboard dies and a sentiment by Huldra Designstudio. The lighter coloured purple banned held the name of the card recipient.
