Huldra snowman

I got invited to a crafting retreat this autumn quite last minute and this is one of the cards I made there. One of the other ladies there inspired this card as she’d made a beautiful mosaic background with leftover green papers. I simply had to lift the idea and made a card of my own with the same technique. I really quite like it!

Helt i siste liten fikk jeg en invitasjon til Hønetreffet som arrangeres årlig på Hønefoss, og jeg takket selvfølgelig ja! En produktiv halvannen dag var resultatet, og der ble jeg også spesielt inspirert av et kort som en annen treffdeltager (arrangøren) lagde. Hennes var grønt, med restepapir, mens jeg gikk for mine vanlige vinterfarger.  Jeg hadde jo ikke brukt noe som helst papir så langt, så da var det å skjære av striper på nye ark, og jeg er kjempefornøyd med resultatet, så det kan fort komme flere kort med mosaikkbakgrunn fra meg!

The papers are by Maja Design and Papirdesign, and the stamps are both from Huldra Designstudio. I love the sentiment. It reads: A snowflake is the butterfly of winter.

Begge stemplene er fra Huldra Designstudio og jeg synes tekststempelet er veldig fint! The papers are from Maja Design og Papirdesign.

Copics used: B91, B93, B95, B97, C1, C3, C5, R00, R20, E71, E74, E77

25. Blue Christmas at last

The last couple of projects I made were in my usual Christmas favourite, blue. I even used the same stamp for them both, where I coloured the clothes in the same colours. She got a different hair colour though. The stamp is by C.C. Designs. I found these gorgeous Maja Design papers right before Christmas and they are the perfect colour for the blue I wanted for Christmas.

The usual twine and charm is accomponied by card candi and acrylic paint. I’ve added a lot of distress ink and frantage to the image itself.

Here both projects are side by side. If you’d like more details about the lollipop card you can view that post here as it went up a few days ago.

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.

Shaker card and winter wryn

It’s Friday and it’s fab! It’s Tiddly Inks time! Winter Wryn is in my spotlight today.

I’ve done it. I’ve started making Christmas cards. But instead of doing the ‘same old’, I decided to have a go at a shaker card for the first time. As usual I didn’t follow a tutorial, as I think it’s more fun to try stuff on my own. I do like to make things awkward for myself, right?

It is not perfect. I decided to double layer the foam tape and had to cut it by hand so the thickness isn’t the same on both layers. This means that the little stars I used got stuck around the side and it looks like I’d made a frame with them as well. It works. It looks great. But it wasn’t intentional, haha!

The ‘god jul’ die is from Kaboks, the flowers from The Hobby House and Wild Orchid Cards, Martha Stewart made the puncher, the white candy is from Craftwork Card (I coloured two of them with YG67), and the paper is by Maja Design. Oh and the stars in the shaker card? That is just some confetti I had laying about. In a bag that is, not all over! I will have to get something that looks like snow for the next one.

Here you can see the stars being all over:

A wee frosty snowman

It’s snowing today. That’s a pretty perfect backdrop for the current theme at Copic Marker Norge: Winter.

A couple of months ago I got a semi-challenge to colour up a Wee Stamps image. As it’s been a while since I’ve coloured one of hers, at least that have ended up here on the blog, I decided it was time. I chose this adorable snowman. I’ve used some Martha Stewart punchers, Noor Design and Maja Design papers, distress ink and Live and Love Crafts lace.

Here is another photo.
