Challenge #80 at Cardz 4 Guyz is Halloween or Autumn Thank You. I went for Halloween with papers from Swedish company Pion Design, and chipboard ghosts and boo.
Hello, I’m back! 🙂 After a small trip, and my mom visiting me for a week. She left yesterday, so now it’s time for me to start catching up with blog post and other stuff.
Today’s first card is for Kortskissen sketch #430. As always we love to see your take on the sketch. Just leave a comment to the blog post at Kortskissen, with a link to your card.
Today’s new challenge at Through The Purple Haze is Anything Goes. I chose to make a Halloween card with quite a simple layout. I love this craft and black paper with ravens. I have a total spider phobia, but still managed to put a wooden spider on my card.
Oops, I did it again… Having a stressful week befor going away for four days, it completely slipped my mind to blog my card for Cardz 4 Guyz challenge #179. The theme this time is Architecture, and you still have five more days to make a card for the challenge.
I chose a picture from Stamperia’s collection Around The World, that features a… building… from somewhere. 😉 I found it suitable for a card for someone who’ll travel somewhere. The quote on top of the card is part of the print on the paper I used as background, and “Have a safe travel” is rubon letters.
At first, I found our sketch #428 at Kortskissen quite challenging. But when I found a piece of chevron patterned paper in my stash, I immediately knew the layout of my card. I also happened to find some old rhinestone frames from Prima Marketing that I had completely forgot about, and one of them was the perfect size for the paper doily. Stamps is from Verve Stamps.
I’m late again, I should’ve blogged this already last week. Oh well… Our challenge #134 at Through The Purple Haze is “Romantic”. Which was quite a bit of a challenge for me, as my usual cardmaking style is about as far from romantic as it possibly can be. I’m quite pleased with the outcome of my romantic card though. I used papers from my fave brand Stamperia, and stamps from one of my fave clear stamps set from Verve Stamps.
We have a brand new sketch for you at Kortskissen. You are welcome to join us and show your take on the sketch. Here’s mine:
It’s quite some time since I made a card for other challenges than the ones I’m in the design team for. When I saw CAS-ual Fridays challenge #182, CASE a Girl Friday I felt I needed to participate though. The challenge is to CASE (Copy And Steal Everything) a card by one of their designer from any past challenge. I chose a Christmas card by Alanna.
I also submit my card to the following challenges:
Our current challenge #178 at Cardz 4 Guyz is the theme Nature. The tree and the leaves I’ve stamped on my card is from a clear stamp set I designed for Slöjd-Detaljer. (this set is no longer available, but we have several other sets).
For this week’s sketch at Kortskissen, I got inspired by the lined background and the arrows. The steampunkish corner stamp is from Inkadinkado, and the tiny Happy Birthday stamp is from Wish.
