CMN, Adventskalender, luke 12

I have a new card to show you today and I also have a little Copic trick for you :)
Today is my turn to inspire you over at Copic Marker Norge 
and you will find this post in Norvegian there.
I love to use Opaque White to create snow on my images and I will show you how I do it today.
You need:
A coloured image, Opaque white, and an old toothbrush.

I have used the wonderful Christmas Lantern Marci from La La Land Craft
and coloured her in these colours:
Skin: E21-51-50, E93 for cheeks
Hair: E33-55-53-51-50
Jacket and hat: E47-44-43-42
Ribbon, lantern and dress: W5-3-1-0
Light around lantern: YR23-21, Y17 and At You spica Gold

Dip your toothbrush in the Opaque white, be careful so it wont drip on your motiv.

With one finger on the brush, just go over your motiv and "splash" carefully until you are happy with the result.

Repeat until it is snowy enough :)
I always makes a few little bigger dots with a toothpick, it looks more natural that way.
My Marci is done and looks so cute standing there in the snowstorm with her lantern ;)
I am sorry the pictures aren't the best.. but I hope you get an idea!

I have used the tut I made earlier for CMN and covered my motiv with UTEE for a more Vintage look. You will find that tut here if you have missed it
This is how I have made my card today:
Image: Christmas Lantern Marci from LaLaLand bought at Kreativ Scrapping
Papers from Maja design
I have used my new Spellbinder frame (♥Christine♥) called Floral ovals and the fantastic Tree line from TH
You will find everything (and a lot more!) at Kreativ Scrapping
Have a lovely winterday everybody ♥
Lots of hugs

My Copic class card

Good evening my lovely friends and followers ♥
I have to show the card I made with the image we coloured on the Copic class I held in Bergen for Kreativ Scrapping in october.
I chose the wonderful LaLaLand image Sweetheart Marci for my class as I think these images are perfect to start with and probably most of you have understood by now that I really like my LLLC stamps! 
Here she is, my lovely little friend♥
Papers from Maja design...so BEAUTIFUL♥
The stamp is bought at Kreativ Scrapping and I have stamped her with Memento ink on Perfect Colouring Paper.

The Copic colours are:
Skin: E21-51-50 and E93 for cheeks
Hair: E55-53-51-50 and some strokes with 57 in the end
Dress: B97-93-91
Hearts and ground: W5-3-1-0 and blender 0
All these colours are put together in this set at Kreativ Scrapping

My inside with a lovely poem from NSS and a small digi Marci (yeah I know I always have to have both...)LOL but I love the effect with the little one too!

Cool paper! All edges are machinestiched,- takes forever, but looks great!

Love the little brad from Kort og Godt.
And one of my favorite On the edge die from TH, the new trees.
Star from Marianne design, swirl from Kort og Godt. Seambinding, cheesecloth and some silver metal that I just love to use.
I have made a matching red card with the same design, but I will show that some other day.
Have to go to work :)
Have a nice weekend.
Big hugs♥

Vintage Magnolia and UTEE...a tutorial

Good morning my lovely friends!
Today is my day to inspire you over at Copic Marker Norge and I have made a picture tutorial for you. Picture heavy, so I hope you survive...
My tutorial will be on the CMN blog in Norwegian.
A lot of you have seen this before, but I have just found it and I just love the effect it gives to my card!
This is what I am talking about...
Lovely Vintage feeling on the image made with UTEE and a freezer ;)
I have used a Magnolia stamp, "Tilda with little Rudolf"
and coloured her with Copic like usual.
I just couldn't resist this little lovely Magnolia when I visited Kreativ Scrapping in november..
Here is what you need:
A coloured image, heatgun, Versamark, Utee (Ultra thick Embossing Enamel)
Freezer (not taken picture of...)LOL and Distress ink of your choice
Cover the whole image with Versamark.
Pour over UTEE and shake it so only the whole image is covered with powder.
Use your heat gun and melt everything until it got a shiny glance.
After one time, a bit bumpy and uneven, but it will be better! :)

Repeat the process totally three times
Then this is the result, completly covered and shiny
Put it in the freezer for 10 minutes

Right when it is out from the cold freezer, bend / break the image until it cracks like you want.
If you wait to long, it wont crack and you have to put it in the freezer again.
If you aren't happy with the cracks, just heat it and freeze it again. 

When you are happy with your cracked image, go over it with Distress ink and blending tool. I have used "Frayed Burlap", my favorite DI. Wipe off the surface with a cloth.
Your image is ready to put on a card :)
Good luck with your Vintage project!
As a little secret gift for my lovely readers, the fantastic Kreativ Scrapping
gave me a box with UTEE to give away
I will draw a winner on either this post or the post at CMN tomorrow :)
The lucky winner get this lovely product:
Melt Art - UTEE - Clear (4 oz.)
Good luck to all of you!
And this is the card I made with my image:

Lovely Tilda ♥

I put a tag under the image to write a secret message on ;)
Papers from Maja design, I LOVE them!!
Flowers WOC
Swirl and pearlberries from Kort og Godt
Cheesecloth, bells and pearls from Kreativ Scrapping
The tag is a star from a Marianne design die set
I have also used the amazing snowflurries from TH behind everything
You will find everything at Kreativ Scrapping
Have a wonderful day!

A box for a change ;)

Good morning!
Today I have a box to show you. Sometimes I just want to make something else than a card.
So I have made a box for Christmas to fill with some nice choclate and a gift card.
And this was perfect for our challenge at Nordsalten Hobbyklubb, where the challenge is
Normally I make cards... sometimes I make a folding card, but it is still a card. This time I have challenged myself to make something else, so I made this box. When it was finished, maybe I think it was a bit too big, but to late to do something about that now, lol
When that is said, I just love this project and with the fantastic image from Saturated Canary I think it turned out pretty nice ♥
I think it looks kinda nice with all the brown earthtones agains the red in her dress.
Looks like Christmas to me :)

Sideview. Love the TH frame ♥

But I now love it, and the reson for that is the lovely LLLC image I have used for my GD card this week.

Can't believe I have made two red cards this week!
Lovely Pion papers
Beautiful poem from NSS, bought at Kreativ Scrapping of course
You will also find the wonderful LLLCstamp in the shop HERE

CMN goes Anything Goes today

Goood morning!
I had such a lovely crafty day yesterday and got a lot done :)
I just love when that happens! I even got some laundry and washing done too in between, so I am super happy with my monday. I am working all nights this week and I hate to wake up to a messy house, so now I can let my shoulders down a bit and maybe get some good sleep... (well a girl can dream! lol) I have had some serious trouble getting the sleep I need after my shifts the last months and I have to try to change that, can't let my family live with a tired mom all the time!
Oh well enought about my sleep! LOL
We are having a really easy one for you at Copic Marker Norge today...Anything Goes!

Side wiew showing the lovely red Christmas papers from Inkido.
And can you really believe I made a CAS card with NO flowers!!
But I wanted it to be a little more exiting, so I put Santa on a flap you can open and under there is a lovely english Christmas poem from North Star Stamp and a little laughting Santa ;) 
I have closed it with a magnet

I think it looks so cool with a small version on the inside :)
Love digi♥
