Snowdrops

Well, the past week flew by quickly! With everything happening at the moment I know quite a few have more time at home regardless of whether they like it or not. I am currently not amongst those, but who knows when that might change. Anyway, because of this I will try to make a couple of colouring videos over the next week to help the colourists out there make time pass a bit quicker and who knows, maybe there are others who might like to try colouring, too.

But for now I will settle with showing you my most recent card. I used a Stamping Bella stamp, and the numbers are made with a MFT Stamps die. The papers are primarily Reprint and Maja Design.

This card has multiple folds, and to see that it needs to be untied.

It has a few folds inside for various content. I’ve made a gift card pocket and written the text from a birthday song on two of the pages inside

And this is how it looks if you look down at it from above.

The blue copics are from the B20s series. The greens are also 20s and the greys are Ns.

Best friends

Yet another clean and simple card today. I’ve coloured up a lot of Stamping Bella lately because of the next two colouring classes I’m planning to have at Hobbykunst in Oslo in March, so I used an entirely different stamp for this card. It’s another one of the images I coloured up in the previous 30 day colouring challenge and my pile of coloured images is now ready for another 30-day refill! The fade-out ink from Inkon3 is great, by the way! Opted for softer colours on the dress.

I’ve used Maja Design paper, an MFT Stamps rectangle die, Make it Crafty chipboard and Altenew enamel dots.

23. CAS card with Magnolia

It has happened. Not only did I colour up a Magnolia image this month, but I did it twice! As some of you know, I haven’t exactly been eager to colour up any of these, but now that I have I realise it didn’t end up as the complete disaster I had imagined! That is good, right?!

I decided to keep this card very simple. I used some gorgeous Maja Design papers and some glitter paper from Søstrene Grene. Last week my order of chipboard from Make it Crafty finally arrived so I was able to put them on a card for this Christmas. I coloured the word christmas up with the same greens that I used on the girl’s jacket and I think the text looks fantastic! I’m so glad I bought some!

As usual the image was coloured up with Copics and you can find the list of colours below. I cut the image out by freehand and then I drew on the ground around her feet straight onto the card blank as I really quite like how that looks!

 

Here is a close-up of the girl.

Kort o Mania – Jul

Ellie Elf with her presents

It is the middle of October, and Copic Marker Norge is back with its regular monthly challenges! This time around we’re starting Christmas a little early.

I recently bought one of those stamping platforms. I love it! I am finally able to stamp properly, I’ve started embossing and I am once again using my stamps to colour up. For this reason I went with a rubber stamp for this card. One I once won. It is from Stamping Bella and I think it’s “totes adorbs”!

The card is being kept reasonably simple with a magnolia die cut border, some shiny purple card candy from Craftwork Cards and some paper scraps I had laying around. I believe the paper is by Creative Imagination, Lili of the Valley and Papirdesign. The sentiment is from Norsk Stempelblad, where I finally played with some embossing!

It was quite a fun image to colour up, actually, so I am sure there will be more of this kind before Christmas is upon us!
