It started with the crafting and when I started my blog in the last days of december 2010
a whole new world opened!

Thank you to each and every one of you for all your support, for all your wonderful comments and for your friendship...

In my candy I have some of the things I love most.
I have three Copic markers in one of my favorite colour.
 Two At you spica glitter pens that makes a fantastic shimmer on your coloured image
 One pack of Perfect colouring paper which I think is the best there is.
One Magnolia stamp...this one is used by me and is the first one I bought..
so this sweet little Tilda need a new home...
Pearlstrings from Kort og Godt in pale lilac and some matching flowers
White flowers from Storyteller and some gorgeous pink one from Kort og Godt

I hope you like it!!

My darling...

I have a new birthday card to show you today.
The current challenge at Teddy Bo is Black, white and one other colour and I think it is soooo difficult! But I have tried and hope I made it....
We haven't had that many perticipants yet this time, so come on and join us and give me some tips for a smashing combination with black and white!
Here is my take on it:
 I did chose brown as my third colour since I had these wonderful WOC flowers I just had to use!
Image is TEDDYBO_209 found here
Coloured with Copics
Papers from Teresa Collins and Maja design
Flowers from WOC and Ridderholm designs
Text from Create with TLC, but i cut off a part of it.
Key charm is a gift from a friend :)

 And this is the inside :)
Isn't this Teddy Bo cute!
You find it in the Teddy Bo shop and I just had to have him as I need it later for a card for another guy that I know, will show you that when it's ready!

Bad pictures... No light what so ever...
And here he is,- my hubby, my cakemonster ;)
Have a wonderful day my friends!
I am sorry for being such a bad blog friend lately, but I have been really busy. This week I am off work, so I will catch up with you all!!
I am entering my card here:
Ready-Teddy-Go - Anything goes
Scrapperiket - Glede (ingen gjør meg så glad som mannen min, stempler og Copics!!)

A new CMN challenge :)

Good morning blogland!
I am so happy to write this post to tell you that today we are now back with our "normal" challenges at Copic Marker Norge. We still have our summer challenge going, but this one is open for all of you Copic users around. We now ship our prizes to other countries than Norway, so come on and join the fun, you are all so very welcome :)
I love my Markers, no doubt about that, and recently I have been trying to push myself a bit outside my comfort sone by trying our other hair colours that my normal blonde/brown or red combination...
If I have succeeded is up to you to decide and I would love to hear your opinion!

For todays challege we are having a wonderful sketch made by Trine, to follow and you must use the colours Purple and Grey on it :)
I love challenges like this and hope you do too!
As usual we have a wonderful prize for the what are you waiting for!!

Here is my inspiration for you
I think Sweetheart Marcy from La La Land looks gorgeous with purple hair!

My inside and back

My wonderful papers are Maja design Vintage summer
and with all the beautful shades of grey they were just perfect.
My flowers are a mix from my stash and the fantastic button comes from Prima.
Ribbon and lace from Panduro and twine from WOC
TH frame, absoulutly stunning!

I printed this little cutie out a bit too big maybe, so I had to flip the sketch and move my frame to the other side, but other than that it is the same as Trine made :)

Marcy is coloured in these Copic colours
Skin: E21, E51-50 and E93
Hair: V17-15-12 and 01
Dress: W7-5-3-1-0 and white gel pen
T-shirt: E43-42-41

Hope you can find some time to join us at CMN this time and like usual I look forward to see what you create!

Until next time...
Take care and have fun

I have these wonderful papers from Edna and I wanted to use them as they are so lovely.

Here is my card
 At least it is pattern enough on the card...
Maybe I should have toned it a bit down, but in real life it looks beautiful :)

Good friends...

Happy birthday Øyvind and Vera!!

Yesterday we were at a party celebrating two of our friends getting 40 :)
The kids were at my mothers, so we could only have a good time without thinking of the clock...

Just want to show you the card I made for them!
Colouring these Kenny K images takes hours, but in the end I think they turned out pretty good!!

And here she is, my friend Vera...aka Devastatia..
calling for her hubby Øyvind...
-com'on baby light my fire-

And here is Øyvind, the olympic her service ;)

Made a space to write some nice things to them in the middle

I think it turned out so cool with him running towards her :)

Hot chick :)

I have used images from Kenny K and coloured them with Copics.
Papers from Teresa Collins, a gift from my friend Edna
Flowers from WOC and Ridderholms design

Hope you like my card today :)
BIG hugs

Tentcard with a tutorial

Good morning my lovely lovely friends :)
I have a tent card to show you today. I have used some of my lovely Magnolia images from an earlier collection as I don't have any from the latest. I don't use my Magnolias that often, but now I really enjoy doing it again and I hope you like it too.
At Copic Marker Norge we are sponsored by Magnolia and I was so inspired that I made a very Christmassy card :o)
And I think it turned out very nice with the traditional Christmas colours and the three images together.
I have used the sweet Santa Edwin and Tilda Santas little helper and the giftbasket and like always they are coloured with Copics.

They are so sweet!!

 I have made a tut on the tent card too if you want to learn how to do it
 (a lot of you you know it already, but maybe there is one or two out here in blogland that don't...)
so here it is :)
You will need 2 pieces of cardstock that measures 6x6" and 1 piece that is 4x6" and designpaper and matting if you like to layer it like me

Find all the things you would like to use on your card.
I have used three beautiful Magnolia images,- Santa Edwin, Tilda Santas little helper and the one with the giftbasket. They are all coloured with Copics.

Score the shortest piece of cardstock on every inch and fold it like valley-mountain-valley-mountain (lol, not always my english finds the right words...)
Attatch the matting and the designpaper and drive it through your cutting machine. Only the front should have a spellbinder hole ;) or it will be a very windy tent... :o)
Glue all your layers on the back of the card too.

Glue all the three pieces together
Decorate your card inside before you close it. I have used my cropodile to make holes on top and used some beautiful ribbons to hold it together, but you can also use brads or just glue it together if you prefere that instead.
I have used design paper inside my tent and stamped on a beautiful Christmas text from North Star Stamps in the middle og the circle and put the giftbasket on 3d dots beside.
Here you see my card ready to give away :)

My Copics:
Skin: E21, E50, E51 og E93
Hair: E44-43-42-41
Edwins pants: W5-3-1-0
Red details: T5, E19, E07

I really hope you liked my card today
Thanks for visiting me :)

Lots of hugs

Fairytale friday

Good morning
Today's card wasn't that easy to do...
I finished the card and took pictures of it and Noooooo, it just wasn't right...
So I took everything apart and started over again..
Much more happy this time, but I realized it's the colours on the image that is difficult for me to work with, but I got it in the end.
Enough waffling...
Here is my card, my sweet darlings birthday card

And I guess you all recognize me there in the frame...and for those of you that knows my hubby you probably recognize him too...LOL

The back with the wonderful TH rosette die that I use way to little...

Fantastic images!
TEDDYBO_208 and the little TEBBYBEA_213 in the frame found here
Coloured with Copic
All papers are scraps from my stash
Magnolia swirl and TH die for the cogweels
The amazing tickets that he gets with the card is made by Colette
and gives him everything from hugs, to evenings or breakfast in bed...
Think my darling will LOVE this!

Head over to the challenge blog and check out my teamies creations and read about what we have been up to lately in the Teddy Bo Tower...

Have you entered my candy????

Hugs, jill

Good morning friends :)
This card was really finished in a rush last night before I went to work, so I am sorry that the photos ain't the best... But I just wanted to show the card I made for the reminder at D'Arcy's Diaries as I think it turned out quite cute :)
This fortnight at D'Arcy's we are having our Anything Goes challenge and I really hope you will join us :)

The Oval Anja die can be found here and the tree you can find here
I made an easelcard this time and I think it looks ok even without any designpaper on the front as both the dies are just so beautiful!
The only decoration is some flowers from stash and a few pearls.

from the shop here
Coloured with Copics
Pearls from Storyteller, found here

Hope you like my card today

Anything Goes at D'Arcy's Diaries

Good morning blogland :)
I have a new card to share with you today and I don't think I have made a blue card like this in ages, and I really like it :)

I have a lot of beautiful blue flowers from WOC and I just had to use them :)
The papers from Maja design fits almost everything and I just loooove them too!

We have a Anything Goes starting today at D'Arcy's Diaries and my card is made with one of the first D'Arcy's Diaries images and also one of my favorites.
This image is the one I coloured for the header of the blog in striking red, so this time I made her in blue and I like them both :)
 FAIRYD_TB_GIRL_02 found here
Coloured with Copics, added a TON of glitter...
Papers from maja design and some leftovers
Flowers WOC
Magnolia swirl
A fantastic pin made of a fantastic crafter and friend Susan
-You can buy your own in her Etsy shop here-
Lace and ribbon from Panduro
Wonderful sentiment strip and matching die from them!

I think this image is gorgeous!
And while I was cleaning up my scraps in the evening I found this lovely bookmark I got in the mail by my sweet friend Tammy Louise and I thought I would make a bookmark to with the card. A perfect gift together with a book to a friend who has a hard time..

 This is my set :o)
The bookmark is one you can put a picture on the top if you like, but I'm not sure if my friend want a picture of me there so I just stamped the text on the dp and put under :)
But she can always change it with a picture of me or a hunky man,- her choice :o)

The wonderful text inside the bookmark says:
-Be strong when everything seem to be going wrong-
Also from MFT

I printed out a tiny D'Arcy on the dp on the front to match the card even better and added some Prima bling,- my favorites and a charm from Hjerteboden.

I would love to enter my card and bookmark here:

Marci in a knitted outfit ;)

Good morning my lovely friends!
Today I would love to share a tutorial I made for Copic Marker Norge.

It is how to make structure in clothes by using colorless blender.
I have used one of my new, lovely La La Land images, that I bought last week and I think she was just perfect for the job :)
I have used Winter Marci and gave her a wool hat and coat today as the summer soon is over and autumn on it's way!

On my first picture, I have started with the hat and made that ready.
 Colour the coat in the colour you choose.
It is important that you do this first or if you colour the whole image you will have structure everywhere and we don't want woolstructure in the face, will we?? LOL

You must let the colouring dry before you use the blender, or it will bleed outside the lines. If you are impatient like me, you can use a heatgun...

This is what you need:
An image coloured ready to work with
Copic Colourless blender
Old cloth with a knitted structure

Drip some drops of blender at the cloth and pat over the image
Don't rub!

And here you can see my image coloured
My Copics:
Skin: E21, E51-50, E93
Hair: E53-51-50 og some 55
Hat and coat: E44-43-42-41 and blender
Red details: T5, E19, E07

This is my card:
A gate fold card again, I really like them :)
Wonderful papers from Glitz and a sweet digi sentiment from Create with TLC
Cheesecloth and flowers from stash
The swirl is the Holly Flourish from Cheery Lynn and it is so lovely

The front and back

And do you see the little cutie inside...she is also new!
But don't tell

You should check out  the La La Land blog for some fantastic inspiration as they have a amazing talented designteam with a lot of inspiration. You find it here:
Have a nice day my friends and thanks for visiting me :)
Always a pleasure to know you have been here
