16. Blue triangle box with snowman

After my co-worker challenged me to make the triangular shaped boxes, I’ve made a few more. This is the very first one of them that I made. She likes blue very much, so that was the obvious colour for the box. I’ve decorated it with various Noor Design dies, a Panduro snowman sticker, Norsk Stempelblad stamp, some twine and Craftwork Cards candi.

This is where you can open the box. You simply untie the string and open it up.

Here is a photo from the front of the box.

13. Christmas tags

Have you ever tried to make your own Christmas tags? These are the first I’ve tried making. Siv kindly made me some tag blanks that I could decorate and I’ve had fun doing it. It is a great way to use left over scrapping papers, that’s for sure.

 

The dies here are by Noor Design and the text on the red is from Maja Design paper and on the blue is a Norsk Stempelblad stamp. The red flowers are by Papirdesign.

 

The text die here is by Kaboks.

Here is another photo of all three together

3. James the bear Lollipop

Throughout the month there will be non-card projects, too. I’ve had fun experimenting and trying to make new things the past couple of months. One of the things I’ve tried to make is a so-called Lollipop card. I’ve seen a few of them around and decided to make one myself. As usual I didn’t look at any tutorials, but decided to just play around to see if I could make one. I think it turned out alright, too.

The image I coloured is one of my first stamps. It’s James the Bear from Lili of the Valley where he’s carrying presents. It’s fun to make at least one Christmas project with him every year.

I’ve used papers from Maja Design, dies from Noor Design, some frantage, distress inks and white acrylic paint.

This is a side on view and a photo of how the backside looks. The sentiment stamp is from Norsk Stempelblad.

  

Copics used: (bear) E41, E42, E43, E44, E47, (red) R22, R24, R27, R59, (green) YG61, YG63, YG67, (grey) W1, W2, W5

1. Winter Stella’s winter scene in traditional Christmas colours

Today is the first of December. I have decided I’m going to try to make one post here every day for the whole month! I certainly have enough to catch up on posting, so hopefully that will help me get caught up somewhat! It won’t be only Christmas and not only cards! Nor will they all have colouring.

Some of my projects will correspond with posts elsewhere, like this one. Copic Marker Norge is having an advent calendar and today is one of my days!

This card was made for a Secret Santa card swap in Make it Crafty.

The stamp is Winter Stella from Make it Crafty and is coloured in with copics. You can find the list of colours at the bottom. I have used various papers from Maja Design; the sentiment is from one of those papers, too. One of the dies is from Magnolia and the rest is from Noor Design. The glittery paper is from Søstrene Grene and I’ve used white acrylic paint on a lot of the elements. The flowers are by Papirdesign.

This is what it looks like with its matching tag

And here is a close-up of the colouring for a change.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, (hair) BV21, BV25, BV29, (eyes) YG01, YG03, YG67, (clothes) R22, R24, R27, R59, W0, W2, E41, E42, E43, E44, E47

Winter Stella with her snowman in a snowglobe

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas. It’s been a while since we had a proper white one, so perhaps we get lucky this year!

This card was made for a card swap and my partner was someone in Australia who had moved there from England. I figured snow was one of the main things she would no longer get around Christmas card, hence a cold, white, snowy card! Thankfully the card made it there just fine, so now I can post it up here, yey!

I’d only made one shaker card before I made this one, and this time around I decided to make the image sort of inside the card instead of adding the shaker part as the outmost part of the card. I think it looks pretty cool like this.

The stamp is Winter Stella with her little snowman. Isn’t it supercute? It’s from Make it Crafty. I’ve used Noor Design trees and the sentiment is cut out using blue foam with a die by KaBoks.

This is how it looks with the snow inside the shaker card all over the image.

Here is a close-up of the image.
