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

During the past month I was so busy taking part in the 30 day colouring challenge on Instagram that I had no time left to make any cards really! Well, the challenge is over now and I have loads of ready-coloured images to make cards of. But before I get started on those, I’ve also gotten to play with the new stamps for the new release at Lili of the Valley which will be out this week. It’s all about Christmas and it’s a great way to get some Christmas cards ready already! Here is the first of the cards I’ve made for the release.

Copics used: N0, N1, N3, R22, R24, R27, R59, G21, G82, G94, G99, E71, E74, E77, YR21, YR23, E08, B000, BV20

Winter shaker as my final LLLC DT project

At the start of last year I made my very first La-La Land Crafts card. Now, 81 projects later, I’ve decided to step down off the design team as my time isn’t quite as predictable as before and it’s more difficult to commit to another half a year. It’s been fun to challenge myself with all the different themes and releases along the way. Thank you so much for having me as a part of your team!

For my final project, the theme is shaker card. I’ve decided to go with a clean and simple winter/Christmas card, if a shaker card can even be deemed as CAS… The white main background on the card is embossed using the snowflakes stencil to give it a bit of a texture.

Here is a photo of the card laying flat and the beads are all over the shaker area.

Winter Wonderland

Christmas hedgehogs

I made this card for the December issue of a Norwegian card making and scrapbooking magazine called Ett Trykk. I used the super-cute hedgehogs from MFT Stamps along with some distress inks and Make it Crafty chipboard. It had to be blue, of course, as I love making blue winter/Christmas cards.

Here is another view of the front of the card

And this little dude appears in the corner on the inside of the card.
