Winter feeling

Happy New Year everyone! Boy, 2019 went by quickly! But it’s been a very good year with loads of wonderful changes. Can’t wait to see what 2020 will bring. Hope you all have a great one!

First day of the year brings with it a new challenge over at Copic Marker Norge. The theme is winter and snow so I’ve had fun with my usual blue and browns. As this new challenge is so close to Christmas, I made it a couple of weeks ago and turned it into a Christmas card. But if I’d been a bit late making it, then I would have put on a Christmas sentiment anyway to get a head start on this year’s cards! The stamp is by Mo’s Digital Pencil.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (brown) E70, E71, E74, E77, E79, (blue) B91, B93, B95, B97, B99, (grey) N0, N1, N3, (tree) BG13, BG96, YR04, YR09, YR20

Little bunny

I’m back up on the Copic Marker Norge blog again today. As it’s been so many Christmas cards lately I thought I’d mix it up with a Christening card. I love using Lili of the Valley stamps for those types of cards, so that’s what I’ve done here, too!

As it was a December event, I’ve kept a winter theme in the papers I’ve used. It is mostly Maja Design papers, but it’s possible one of them is Papirdesign as well. I lost track a bit in the massive production of cards at the start of December, I admit. The cute little charm is a bit difficult to see in this photo, but it’s a little pram and it’s super adorable!

Oh, and a little tip. Lili of the Valley is having 60% off on their stamps until New Year. What a great deal, right?! I know I’m getting me some more stamps at least!

Copics used: N0, N1, N3, B9, B93, B95, B97, B99, E41, E42, E43, E44, W0, W1, W3

Merry Christmas to you all

Today, the 24th, is the day we celebrate Christmas here. It was my turn on the Copic Marker Norge calendar today, for the final day, and I felt it had to be something quite special. I’m really good at putting pressure on myself, haha. Soooo, I took 3 of Mo’s Digital Stamps images and merged them together for a really simple card. I coloured it all up in traditional colours and kept the card as simple as can be.

And with this card I’d like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. Santa’s even been by this morning, and I got my white Christmas after all. Yey!

A wee winter fairy for Christmas

Today is my second day on the Copic Marker Norge blog this month for our advent calendar. You don’t need the most typical Christmas stamps to make Christmas cards. This, for example, gets most of its Christmas feel through the colours I’ve used on the papers. The cute stamp is by Wee Stamps / Whimsy Stamps and I’ve used various papers from Maja Design. I’ve used a text stamp by Norsk Stempelblad and ribbon bought at Panduro. The card shame is made with dies from Go Kreate and I’ve edged the pieces with white acrylic paint.

Here is a close-up photo of the colouring. I wanted to show you how the wings, ear muffs and snow looks. To get that effect I simply played around with various light coloured markers, but with a bit extra focus on blue, until I got it how I wanted.

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
