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

Tiny Stamping Bella elf

I’ve made another Clean and Simple Christmas card. This time I’ve used a Stamping Bella stamp of the Tiny Towie elf. Green, blue and brown are the colours I opted for. As I’ve been making cards throughout the year, I’ve given myself an extra challenge of trying to alternate the colours and combinations a bit.

Let’s have another photo with a closeup of the colouring, because why not!

14. Elf and glitter

Another day, another Christmas card. I am quite pleased I have managed two weeks straight now with posting new things. It feels quite nice getting caught up with the posts at the end of the year now! Today I have another clean and simple Christmas card.

This one features an elf from Make it Crafty which I have coloured up with Copics. I’ve cut it all out by hand and then afterwards drawn on the ground under his feet straight onto the card base. I’ve cut out some triangles to use as trees on glitter paper from Sรธstrene Grene, and used a background paper from Studio Light. The sentiment stamp is from Panduro.

Aaaand another photo!

Copics used: (hat and jacket) W1, W3, R22, R27, R59, Y13, Y19, Y38, (shoes) E43, E44, E47, C7, 100, (jumper and trousers) YG01, YG03, YG63, YG67, (hair) E25, E31, E34, E44, (skin) E000, E00, E11

Tiddly elfy holidays

I made two cards for the Tiddly Inks release and this is the second of them. I used Elfy Holidays and coloured her in with copics. I drew in the sign post myself as I couldn’t think of how to colour up the background.

I used dies from both Tim Holtz (snowflakes) and Noor Design (reindeer and trees). The flowers are a mix of Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts. The charm is from Korthobby. I used acrylic paint around most of the elements to get more of a winter/snow feeling to the card. The sentiment stamp is by Staz which I bought at a scrapping fair I was on, but don’t remember which stall it was.. heh.
