Big gift

Another layered card in red using Maja Design papers. I’ve really used a lot of this time around. The reason for that, I suppose, is that I have been making several cards at once so it’s handy to just use up all the paper, instead of saving half or 3/4 of something. This time I’ve used some cheese cloth and a Magnolia stamp with it, as well as a Papirdesign sentiment.

I should be back to adding the Copic numbers from tomorrow’s post onwards. If you are curious about any here, just pop a comment to this post.

Penguin and polar bear Christmas

I’ve been looking at the adorable penguin stamps by Crissy Armstrong at Whimsy Stamps for a while and this month I finally got around to purchasing a few of them. Two of them have made their way onto cards so far and today I will show you the first one of them.

The card is made using various Maja Design paper and my favourite Go Kreate dies. The text stamp is by Norsk Stempelblad and apart from painting the edges white and using a bit of twine and lace, I’ve kept the card free of embellishments.

Once again time prevents me from adding the colours, but I’ve mostly used Ns, low Ws and R20s.

Make It Crafty elf

Once again Copic Marker Norge is having an advent calendar and today is my day to show a card. I decided to take the opportunity to thank Zoe of Make It Crafty for her wonderful contribution to the crafting community. Her fab colouring, great shop with fab stamps and of course my favourite chipboard is worth mentioning now that she has decided to close the shop down at the end of this week. I will make sure I get some shopping done at the weekend, for sure, while I still can! Thank you, Zoe, for all the inspiration!

I’ve used this Make It Crafty stamp and chipboard together with some Maja Design paper, some new lace I found on Ebay a couple of months ago and finally got around to using, and ribbon from… I think it’s from the Hobby House, actually, and that I’ve had it forever.

Here is a close-up of the colouring

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (brown) E70, E71, E74, E77, E79, (blue) B91, B93, B95, B97, B99, (green) BG90, BG93, BG96, BG99, (white) N0, N1, N3, (ground) W0, W1, W3, W5

LotV Tomte outside

A very clean and simple blue Christms card using one of the Tomte at Lili of the Valley. I decided to do this one in no-lines.

And the Copics? Well, I don’t remember. I coloured it while I was away and in a hurry, but at a guess it was the B90s, E70s, E40s and Ns primarily.

YNS Bunny with gingerbread cookie

For my final project for the new Your Next Stamp release I’ve used this adorable little bunny and made a layered card in traditional Christmas colours. The sentiment is from the same stamp set, Christmas Cookie, which you can find here.
