1. Winter Stella’s winter scene in traditional Christmas colours

Today is the first of December. I have decided I’m going to try to make one post here every day for the whole month! I certainly have enough to catch up on posting, so hopefully that will help me get caught up somewhat! It won’t be only Christmas and not only cards! Nor will they all have colouring.

Some of my projects will correspond with posts elsewhere, like this one. Copic Marker Norge is having an advent calendar and today is one of my days!

This card was made for a Secret Santa card swap in Make it Crafty.

The stamp is Winter Stella from Make it Crafty and is coloured in with copics. You can find the list of colours at the bottom. I have used various papers from Maja Design; the sentiment is from one of those papers, too. One of the dies is from Magnolia and the rest is from Noor Design. The glittery paper is from SΓΈstrene Grene and I’ve used white acrylic paint on a lot of the elements. The flowers are by Papirdesign.

This is what it looks like with its matching tag

And here is a close-up of the colouring for a change.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, (hair) BV21, BV25, BV29, (eyes) YG01, YG03, YG67, (clothes) R22, R24, R27, R59, W0, W2, E41, E42, E43, E44, E47

Christmas morning

I made this card to showcase one of Mi Ran‘s latest images. It is called Christmas Morning. As soon as I saw it I knew exactly how I wanted the card to look! It would fit perfect within a window-like card similar to what Tracy Payne of Noor Design UK did for her vintage card course in Norway earlier this month. So that is what I did!

For the card base I used Go Kreate dies, which I painted with acrylic paint around the edge. The papers are by Panduro and Pion. Everything is coloured in with Copic makers and I used glitter glue for the gold effect on the tree. All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the tree and reindeer dies are from Noor Design. The snowflake border is made with a Tim Holtz die and I used lace from KaBoks to make the curtains.

Winter walk with friends

Keeping with the Christmas card theme, to get them all posted up. I delayed posting them at the start of December, as I didn’t want to put them up before giving them away, and then Christmas came around and I wasn’t online much for two weeks. Oh well. Time to catch up!

This one is made with a Sylvia Zet digital image. She has unfortunately closed down her online shop and her images are now only available in pre-coloured versions or rubber stamps. I wish I had paid more attention and purchased some more before she took the shop down.. Oh well. I have coloured it in with copics. The flowers are all Wild Orchid crafts, and I have used Martha Stewart punchers, glitter glue, frantage and various bits from my stash.card306_1

Traditional Santa

One week to go and the days are getting busier by the minute. I’ve had more actual work this week as well, so the birthday cards I want to make before tidying all my crafting supplies away for the year are on hold for another couple of days. I hope I get them done in time! Let’s look at today’s card.
