Poinsettia and pomegranates

November. Wasn’t it just May? I really can’t keep up this year, but apparently it’s time release that Christmas is less than two months away. This month we’re having the theme Christmas for our Copic Marker Norge challenge. I’ve decided to colour up the Poinsettia and Pomegranates stamp from Power Poppy that I coloured up two years ago. I went with even richer and deeper reds this time and kept the card really quite simple.

Copics used: (red) R22, R24, R27, R89, E79, (green) YG13, YG17, G94, G99, (brown) E74, E79, (yellow) Y32, Y38, YR07

A couple of bookmarks

I have so many cards and projects to get done, so I escaped all of it by making myself a bookmark as I have no idea where the other ones are and this book I’m reading deserves a proper bookmark. I had quite a few stamps I coloured up while I had my demo at Hobbykunst, and they are perfect for bookmarks! I sent a quick text to closest family and then ended up making eleven bookmarks, so far… Here are the first two I made. The dies and stamps are all by MFT Stamps. The die set I used for the actual bookmarks is part of what I chose for my Superstar win and I absolutely love it!

This one is mine. I surprised myself by keeping the colours soft, and of course I had to have a hedgehog on it!

I so love this space stamp set. Isn’t it the cutest?!

Unfortunately I will not be listing the colours for these stamps, but to give you a general idea: the grey and black in the space one is all N markers and the brown and skin colour on the hedgehog are E70s and V90s.

LotV James bear and the blue cracker

Time for another card on my blog. I am so busy making cards and colouring at the moment that there is sometimes simply not enough time to blog as well! Yesterday, for example, I made three cards and eight bookmarks. I’ll calm down in the middle of November though, so I hope to post more regularly again then, and I do have a surprise at the start of November as well.

This card is made using my favourite bear, James. I figured it was time for a blue Christmas card, but kept it simple this time. I’ve combined it with one of the new sentiments also by Lili of the Vally.

Copics used: (blue) B32, B34, B37, B39, (bear) E41, E42, E43, E44, (grey) C0, C1, C3, (ground) N0, N1, N3, N5

Space fun

I spent the weekend at Hobbykunst Norge colouring up various My Favorite Things Stamps. I got to meet some great people interested in both the colouring and the stamps and I got a few stamps coloured up to add to my already rather large pile of coloured images! One of the stamp sets I coloured up was the astronaut and space themed set. And between my colouring sessions on Saturday and Sunday I managed to make it into a card, too. I decided to go with the MFT sketch of the week so I could enter it into their challenge.

The paper is by Studio Light and the rhinestone stars are by Rayher. You can obviously find all the products at Hobbykunst.

Here is a photo of the card laying down flat as well, and a little more close up.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E41, E42, E43, E44, (black) N3, N5, N7, N9, (blue) B01, B04, B06, (green star) G21, G40, G94, G99, (yellow) Y31, Y35, Y38, (green planet) YG93, YG97, YG99

This card has been entered into the following challenge:

MFT Stamps – Sketch Challenge #459

Nurse, another word for hero

A co-worker recently quit to start her life as a nurse in another part of the country. I simply had to have this stamp set from MFT Stamps for her good-bye card. Colouring white on white is always a challenge, and I wanted to do it in no-lines. I tried the fade-out ink from Inkon3 again, and it’s perfect.

Copics used: (face) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, R20, R22, (hair) E41, E42, E43, E44, (white) N0, N1, N3, (green) G21, G40, G94, (grey) N5, (ground) W0, W1, W3, W5
