More Christmas at CMN

Good morning friends and welcome to my blog today!
We are starting a new chellenge at Copic Marker Norge today and we are having another fantastic theme...
Make a blue Christmas card
I love blue Christmas cards and when Kreativ Scrapping sent me theese wonderful papers from Kort og Godt and a lovely Marianne Design stamp, I was sold!
Here is my card
I have to admit first time I looked at this stamp I wasn't totally over the moon... But now!
I love it :)
And those papers are just fantastic. Designed by the fantastic Gro Tjeltveit :)
Well done sweetie!
Wonderful swirls and berries from Kort og Godt and some flowers from Papirdesign and Storyteller
The back of my card showing a wonderful new Marianne design die called Eline's iskrystall, some cheesecloth and my personal stamp.
Unders the sweet image I have used cheesecloth and some fantastic metalic stuff from Kreativ Scrapping. It makes a great effekt in real life and it can be found in both silver and gold.
I have used the gold version together with some lovely new brown papers on a decorated matchbox. I love it! Think I have to buy a ton of the stuff! lol Will show it to you some other day ♥
My Copic colours:
Skin: E21-51-50
Blue: B97-95-93, BG 01
Grey: W5-3-1-0
Yellow shine: YR14-24, Y17-13-11
Shadow: W5-3-1-0
I have sprayed the image with Opaque white to make it snow
We are sponsored this time by

Hope you can find the time to join us at Copic Marker Norge. The Christmas is getting closer and I guess you have some cards to make :) So that makes a perfect excuse to join our challenge

Finally...she's here :)

I have been drowling over this wonderful stamp from Saturated Canary called Candy Cane for a while now and now I finally got her!
She is only made in rubber, so no digi image this time, and I just had to have her as I just love all the images from Saturated Canary.
At Kreativ Scrapping they are now taking up preorders for all the SC rubber stamps and I am so happy about this!
I think I can see myself using this beauty on a lot of my Christmas cards this year...
On to my card, I hope you love it as much as me ♥
Amazing image!
Hurry and grab her in the shop before she is gone :)
 I have used my Copics as usual to colour my image

I have used alot of my favorite stuff on my card today...
First of all, the wonderful Pion Christmas Papers called Silent night
I have some rolled flowers from Kort og Godt, the pearlberries and swirl is also new in the shop and looks really amazing and I just want to use all of them all the time :)
My blue flowers are really old, but from Kort og Godt and the white ones are from Storyteller.

I have used a lovely Cheery Lynn die on the back together with my personal stamp and the beautiful transparent Christmas stickers comes from Joy! Craft.

Simple inside with my favorite stamp from NSS and the CL swirl cut in two.

On top of the card I have put the lovely TH snow flurries, on the edge die cut out in a paper I can't remember what is called in english...lol
On the front I have used some old stamps from NSS, also my favorite..
So this card I am super happy with. I loved making it and I love the end result. I have used all my favorite things at the moment and you will find it all at Kreativ Scrapping.
I have put in the links, so you can easy find the stuff in the shop :)
I am off for a meeting with my friends at Copic Marker Norge today and a late glass of wine with my hubby in Oslo after that, so lucky to have my mother here, looking after the kids ♥
