Mmmm Strawberries!

Our theme this month, at Copic Marker Norge, is something edible. Initially I was going to use a stamp with donuts, but I got a Power Poppy gift certificate for my birthday a few days ago and I simply had to colour up this stamp! Don’t the strawberries look yummy?! I cannot wait for summer and being able to pick some in mum’s garden! Strawberries are delicious!

Copics used: R22, R24, R27, R59, R89, G21, G24, G40, N1, N3, Y11, Y13, Y38, YG01, YG17, YG23, YG97

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.

LotV Winter bunny with bird

Here is another Christmas card I’ve made to match the others I’ve done the past two months. I’ve used one of the recent Lili of the Valley stamps along with one of the new sentiments. The papers are all Maja Design and I’ve used my usual acrylic paint, favorite lace, some twine, a charm and the wonder shape die by GoKreate.

Copics used:(bunny) N0, N1, N3, R20 (red) R22, R24, R27, R59, (green) G21, G82, G94, G99, (brown) E71, E74, E77, (sky and bird) B000, B02, BV20

Picnic time

Bah, holiday over already. I had my flight home yesterday with my suitcase and hand luggage filled with so much crafting stuff I barely had room to bring other things I bought home, never mind the stuff I was supposed to take back, like the camera. Oh well, there is always next time haha. I’ve not even had time to unpack yet as I went straight to work from the airport and today is another long day where I won’t be home until late evening. Hopefully I can get started on some card making with my new stuff tomorrow!

Below is a card I’ve made with papers from various First Edition Paper pads. The circular die is made with spellbinders. I don’t remember what my reasonably new corner die is called so I will update the post with the name of it later. The corner dies are from Die-Namics of course, from My Favourite Things. The pre-coloured image is by Lili of the Valley and all the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. As usual the leaves are made with a Martha Stewart puncher. The ribbons were in my stash, I believe the transparent yellow one once came with a bunch of flowers, heh. The brad I used on the bow is one I’ve had in my stash for a while, but I reckon it is a Papermania one.
