Summer is best at the beach

1st July.

Goodness… how fast the year is flying by!

Anyway, it is time for some midway inspiration at Copic Marker Norge.  Once again it is a moodboard challenge and I’ve been inspired by the summer and beach feeling along with the colours. The stamp I chose is by Saturated Canary and Krista Smith. The paper is by Maja Design and the chipboard is, as usual, by Make it Crafty.

Here is another photo of the card.

Copics used: (hair) BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (swimsuit) BG15, BG49, BG57, BG78, (towel) V09, V12, V15, V17

Celebrate joyfully – flowers

Today is another break from Christmas cards with this whimsical one. I’ve used a Tiddly Inks stamp for it and coloured it in with Copics. In fact the stamp is an extra one you get if you purchase Celebrate Joyfully. The papers are various scraps I had laying about that I wanted to use up, and the sentiment is my own. I’ve used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts.

And just because I love taking photos at weird angles, you get another one!

Copics used: YG01, YG03, YG67, G99, C1, C3, Y04, Y08, Y19, R24, R27, R89

Fairy summer time

Allergy and sunburn season is up! Or as it is more commonly called: summer. Every summer Copic Marker Norge’s design team have one week each where they are to inspire copic users. This week is my week and here is my first card. I have gone through my stash to find something I’ve not coloured before and I found this. An adorable fairy by Saturated Canary.

I’ve coloured it all in with copics, as always. It would be a bit silly trying to inspire copic users with other tools, right? The various other stash are from Papermania, Wild Orchid Crafts, Martha Stewart and Live and Love Crafts. I’ve made the sentiment myself.

Here is a closer up view of the colouring. I think that is my least favourite part of this whole week… the close-ups.. hahaha.

I’ve semi hidden som flowers underneath one of the layers and here is a sneak peek of them:

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, R20, R22, (hair) RV02, RV04, RV09, R89, (wings and dress) RV02, RV00, Y04, Y38, YR16, (flowers) B00, B02, B05, YG03, G82, G94, (lips and eyes) B00, B02, B05, B99, R24, R89

Enjoy the summer

If you have noticed that I am late with this month’s card for the Copic Marker Norge challenge then you’re absolutely right! One of the super ladies on the team offered to swap teams with me this month when I was running short on time in the middle of June. Thanks!

I’ve used a Make it Crafty image for this enjoy the summer challenge theme we’re running. For a change I’ve not used the full image, but cropped it closer. Isn’t she adorable? It’s been coloured in with copics, of course, and you can see the list of colours below.

Other supplies used here are from Live and Love Crafts (now closed down), Wild Orchid Crafts, Martha Stewart punchers, some cheese cloth and pearls. The paper, if I remember correctly, is by First Edition Paper.

Copics used: (hair) E08, E18, E19, E49, E97, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (dress) YG03, G82, G94, G99, W1, W3, W5, (flowers) Y04, Y08, YR04, and a white gel pen

It’s summer and another progressive challenge

It’s that time again, the time for a new Mi Ran progressive challenge! They are so much fun! You purchase the image the first time you play along, when you participate by adding your creations, you will at the start of the next month receive that image for free. It is so much fun to see all the creations you get from the same image! Everybody is so talented and creative! So come play along with us! Visit the Mi Ran Facebook group for more information. After each month the image is available in Mi Ran’s Etsy store.

It is finally a nice warm summer here, which inspired my card. I coloured the image in with copics and went with much paler colours than I have done as of late. I decided on the violet and yellow combination and even coloured the sentiment in to match. The sentiment is by Lili of the Valley, as is the yellow background paper. The main background is by Maja Design and I very much regret only purchasing one sheet of it! All the flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts and the berry looking spray is by Live and Love Crafts. The leaves die is by Noor Design and the butterfly puncher is Martha Stewart.
