Advent: day 2

Hi everyone!

Today it's day 2 of the advent, so here's my second card.
It's pretty simple, just like the previous one from yesterday and with the same papers.

The papers are all from BoBunny and I just added 3 sequins.

Hope to see you back tomorrow!

First day of advent!

Hi everyone!
I didn't realise before but it's the first day of the advent. Yes, only about 4 to Christmas.
So I decided it would be fun to post every day something.
Maybe not a whole project and not always Christmas themed, but something!
It should be fun!

Today I'm going to start with a Christmas card I made recently and didn't use for a DT thing or something else.

It's a very small card, it's only 8x8 cm, but I like it so much. I think it's adorable.
I made it with the gorgeous paperpad by BoBunny "Sleigh Ride" and the stamp is by Kaisercraft.

Hope I'll see you back tomorrow!

Hi everyone!

It's almost the end of November, are you already done with your Christmascards?
I'm not, but I'll keep working on them!
I really enjoy making Christmascards but I try to switch in different colours. Always the traditional colours are too boring for me.

So here's my bright card featuring the super cute doll Mrs Claus. She baked some chocolate cookies, mmm...
I used purple, turqoise and green as a non traditional colourcombo.

Of course I've coloured her with my Copic markers.
Here are the colours that I've used:
skin: e04, 11, 00, 000, R20
hair: E50, 59, 37, 35, 31
purple: N7, V09, 17, 15, 12
turqoise: N7, BG18, 13, 11, 10
white: C5, 3, 1, 0
red: R59, R35, R32
green: G28, YG17, 13, 11
milk: E43, 41, 50, W1
plate: C7, 5, 3, 1, 0
cookies: E37, 35, 33, 31, 59

Thanks for reading this blog!

Met Copic Markers kleuren op kraftpapier

Hallo allemaal,

Ik ben nog steeds bezig met mijn kerstkaarten te maken voor dit jaar, ben jij al klaar?
Volgens mij begint het toch wel aardig op te schieten, dat mag ook wel want ik heb slechts nog een maand de tijd om mijn kerstkaarten te bezorgen aan de mensen.

Kerstkaarten mogen absoluut ook heel eenvoudig zijn, zo kan je er ook meer maken.
Deze kaart heb ik heel eenvoudig gehouden. Ik hou ook wel van de clean en simple look, voor mij is dat meer dan voldoende.

Wist je bijvoorbeeld ook dat je naast op wit papier ook op kraftpapier kan kleuren met je Copic Markers?
Zo geef je een geheel andere look aan je kaart.
Dit was nu de eerste keer dat ik het geprobeerd heb en ik vond het super!
Ik heb gekleurd op "Neenah Desert Storm" en het smaakt naar meer!

Deze stempel (Ice, Ice, Baby van Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps) is gestempeld met Memento Rich Cocoa, die geeft een zachtere uitstraling. Het wit is aangebracht met een potlood. Verder is de techniek hetzelfde.

Dan volgen nu nog de Copic Marker kleuren die ik hiervoor gebruikt heb:
vacht: W7, W5, W3, W1
groen: G28,YG17, YG13, YG11
sjaal: R59, R46, R24
tong: R22

Zo heb je met een beperkt aantal kleuren en een eenvoudig design toch een leuke kaart.
Bedankt om even langs te komen, 

Tot de volgende,

Here's my card with it. I've stamped some of the kraftythings and coloured them in with Copic Markers and I've used a sentiment to complete it.

Tutorial Copic achtergrond kleuren met airbrush effect

Hallo allemaal!

We zijn reeds november en dat wil zeggen dat we de kerstperiode aan het naderen zijn.
Zijn jullie al begonnen aan de kerstkaarten?
Ik in ieder geval wel! Maar wees gerust je hebt nog tijd in overvloed! 

Deze keer heb ik voor jullie een tutorial gemaakt van hoe je een achtergrond kunt kleuren met airbrush effect.
Ik heb helemaal geen airbrush, misschien koop ik wel eentje in de toekomst, maar zo kan het dus ook.
Met enkele blauwe markers heb je genoeg.

Dit is de stempel die ik gekleurd heb "Snowball Fairy" by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps en de achtergrond.

Bekijk HIER mijn video op YouTube

Ik hoop dat jullie er iets aan gehad hebben!

Mijn kaart bestaat uit een eenvoudig design opgefleurd met wat pailletjes. De vleugels, het bustiertje, de sterretjes en haar oogschaduw zijn voorzien van wat glitter, dus de nodige dosis blingbling is er.

Hier zijn dan nog de Copic Marker kleurtjes die ik heb gebruikt:
huid: E04, 11, 21, 00, 000, R02
haar: E59, 55, 53, 50
rood: N7, R59, 46,24
turquoise: BG78, 75, 72, 70
sneeuwbalrok en kraag: C3, 1, 0
ogen: B37, 34, 32
sterretjes: E35, YR23, Y15
blauwe achtergrond: B02, 00, 000, 0000

Dit was het voor mij vandaag, bedankt om te komen kijken.
