Pocket card in blue and white

Hi crafty friends,
Today I want to show you a card I made using two things I haven't used in a long time. Distress inks and a Magnolia image. I do love my little Maggies (and I have soooo many of them), but I have been neglecting them for a while lol. 

I made a pocket with cardstock and a tag to go inside. Papers are Vibeke Spigseth/Poppy design, I used a Martha Stewart punch, Spellbinders oval and scalloped oval and circle and scalloped circle, flowers by WOC and Panduro, charms from ebay, branch dies by Marianne design. Ribbon from stash and sentiments by Norsk Stempleblad AS. 

 I colored this cute Tilda with snow heart with distress inks. Skin is tattered rose and vintage photo, clothes are stormy sky and pumice stone. Shadows are made using black sooth. I used Frantage chunky white around the image to make the snow.

I made a simple tag using another Martha Stewart punch on one of the edges. Big sentiment is also by Norsk Stempleblad AS. 

This card was published in the Christmas edition of Ett Trykk "Julehilsen"
Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Have a great day!

Hope you are doing well! I'm busy getting all my christmas cards done... and having lots of fun doing it! This is a card I made for the Christmas Edition of Ett Trykk Magazine. 
I've been having a thing for paperbag cards lately, easy to make and very decorative.

Here's the front. I used Maja Design papers, a Martha Stewart Snowflake edge punch, and I used the snowflakes from the corner punch to decorate the card. The trees are made from the Magnolia Spruce die, and sentiments are by Norsk Stempelblad as. The cute Trumpet punch is from the Live & Love craft store. 

The image is the Christmas Carolling couple by the Paper Nest Dolls. I colored it with copic markers.

DT Copic Marker Europe: Creating a scene with copics

Hi crafty friends,
I want to show you my DT post for Copic Marker Europe this month. It's an album I altered to create a special Christmas gift for my sister to give to her hubby. They are going to celebrate their baby's first christmas and she wanted to give him a special album. She chose this lovely Mo Manning image (and the pink, and I had lots of fun creating a whole scene using my Copic Markers. I wanted to make them walk the journey of life together. I put a poem about that inside the cover. 

Here's my album. I printed the image in a bigger size to cover the front page. I used just a few dies to decorate so the image could be in focus. The sentiment says: To the best daddy in the world! 

The image is "Father and daughter" by Mo's digital pencil. 
I googled the words "man walking on road" on google images, and I found a picture to use for inspiration (not copy, just for inspiration to help me with the lines in the image). I draw a few lines using a pencil to create the road and the scenery, very lightly not to ruin my tips. 
Picture borrowed from

I used different shades of green to create depth in the picture. And I used my W's to make mountains in the background. To create the grass and ground i used the dotting technique in many shades of green on the grass and E 30-35 to create a sense of movement and depth.  

Copics used:
Skin: E13-11-21-000
Hair, shoes, belt, road: E37-35-33-31-30
Dress, flowers: E889-85-83-81
T-shirt: W7-3-1-00
Pants: B99-97-95-93-91
Grass: G99-94-82-46-43-40-21, YG67-03
Mountains: W7-5-3-1-00
Sky: B60, C1, W00

I had lots of fun creating this scene, I have never done this before, but I think it turned out okay. So my advice is: Don't be afraid to try!

Hope you got inspired to play with your markers!
