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!

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.

LLLC: Gingerbreads

I’m finally back with another Team Friday make for the La-La Land Crafts blog. This time our theme is Candy Canes and Gingerbread. Decided to go with a bit darker colours than I have been lately and this Papirdesign paper seemed to fit perfectly.

LLLC: Fall leaves

Hello everyone. It is Friday again and time for another La-La Land Crafts project. Today I’ve opted for making a card where I’ve done loads of colouring. I’ve used the Happy Fall stamp as the Marci is a little smaller and then I’ve drawn in a tree with loads of autumn coloured leaves. I’ve made a little sentiment cluster with some of the leaf dies to go with. You find it all linked below.

Stamps:
Happy Fall
Happy Boo to You clear stamp (sentiment)

Elk stamp and sunsets

Today I’ve got three projects to share with you. All of them are featuring Distress Oxide Ink, text sentiments in Norwegian and the same elk/moose stamp from Huldra Designstudio. I asked for suggestions for the background colours and as I got four suggestions I thought I may as well try to use them all! All of the projects are made with everything on just one layer, except for the tag that has another tag in green on the other side.

I dag har jeg tre nye prosjekter å vise dere. Alle er laget med Distress Oxide, tekststempler og det samme elg-stempelet. Det er da selvfølgelig Huldra Designstudiostempler jeg har brukt her. Jeg ba om fargeforslag på Facebooksiden til Huldra og fikk inn 4 forslag. Siden det ikke var så mange så prøvde jeg å lage kort med alle. Det er stempelplata Jakt som har vært utgangspunktet for disse. Alle prosjektene er laget med kun ett lag, med unntak av pakkelappen som har enda en pakkelapp i grønn på baksiden.

The first card is made with the colours yellow-orange-red and a tree stamp by Nelli Snellen.

Det første kortet er laget med tre Distress Oxide farger. Gul – oransje – rød. Trestempelet er fra Nelli Snellen og tekststempelet er fra stempelplata til Huldras Rampestreker.

The second card is made with yellow-green-blue and a tree stamp from Altenew.

Dagens andre kort er laget med forslaget gul-grønn-blå og trestempel fra Altenew. Her er tekststemplene fra stempelplatene Jakt og Fleksitekst.

Here is the tag I made. The colour suggestions was yellow-pink-turquoise as well as yellow-orange-pink-blue(x2). The tag die is by La-La Land Crafts.

Pakkelappen jeg har laget er med fargeforslagene gul-rosa-blågrønn og gul-oransje-rosa-blå(x2). Teksten her er også fra Rampestreker. Taggen er fra La-La Land Crafts.
