Colours of autumn

My third and last card for today is made with various designer papers, a couple of pieces of washi tape and stamps from my fave clear stamps set from Verve Stamps.

I used the sketch from City Crafter challenge #334 as inspiration for my card. I was also inspired by the colors in the photo at Inspired by All the Little Things #39. I also submit this card to Stampin’ Royalty challenge #350 – Celebrations, The Crafty Addicts challenge #36 – Autumn Colours, and Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge #175 – Shades of Autumn.

Kortskissen #380

My card for this week’s Kortskissen is a dark grungy Halloween card. Maybe I should stop making Halloween cards soon, as I don’t send any. My stash is getting pretty big.

I have used designer papers from K-Designs (I love their papers!). The owl image if from a sheet of vintage Halloween images from Slöjd-Detaljer, and the Happy Halloween stamp is from Deep Red.

Have A Wonderful Christmas

On a dark fall day like this, being too tired to do any chores, I have decided today will be a cardmaking day. Yes, all day long! 😀

Here’s the first card of the day. I’ve used white vellum with glittery wintery swirly print, banners cut out from Maja Design papers, a white glittery snowflake made with a Martha Stewart punch, and a “Have A Wonderful Christmas” sentiment stamp that is my design for Skapa Hobby. It’s always tricky to adhere vellum without the glue or tape shining through. I rather use a thin tape all along the edges, to make it looking a bit like a border, than to add small dots of glue/tape.

I’m very thankful for Less is More’s challenge #299, to use vellum, as I hardly ever do that. I was also inspired by Jenni Murray‘s card at Muse challenge #188. I wanted to make mine in the same colors as hers, but I didn’t find any suitable turquoise or light blue papers.

Not your regular gingerbread men

This card did not turn out the way I wanted it to, but oh well. The circle with the gingerbread man, and the pieces of paper behind them, are from papers I purchased at Panduro one or two years ago. Stamp is from a clear stamp set from Kaisercraft. I embossed it, and the small black dots all around the sentiment shows how very seldom I emboss these days – I should’ve brushed them away before heating…

Thank You

I’m squeezing in a Thank You card inbetween the Halloween cards. For this card I’ve used Graphic 45 papers and a butterfly stamp which I designed for Reprint Artstamps years ago. I’m not sure where the Thank You stamp is from, but it might be Verve Stamps.

I submit this card to Butterfly Challenge #64 – Checkered and/or Cyan (I went for checkered only), and MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #302.

One more!

Yup, I’m having a productive day, this is my third card for today. And it’s horrible! No, not the card itself. But the fact there are spiders on it! I can’t believe I did that. I HATE spiders!! Even these little handdrawn monsters are creepy to me…

The Halloween stamp is from Vilda Stamps, and the ghosts are a stamp I designed for Reprint Artstamps ages ago.

I submit this card to a whole lot of challenges:

Here’s the reason why I’ve used those creepy creatures on my card – I got insired by the bottom right picture in this collage from Stampin’ Royalty challenge #349:


And this sketch from CAS Colours & Sketches challenge #195 was perfect for my card:

It’s almost Halloween

With only a couple of weeks until Halloween, and several card challenge blogs having Halloween related challenges, there is plenty of inspiration for making Halloween cards.

This card, with a vintage Halloween image from Slöjd-Detaljer, is my interpretion of Freshly Made Sketches sketch #258:



I was also inspired by this image from Tuesday Throwdown #315:

Flowery birthday wishes

This must be the quickest card I have made in a very long time. Usually I spend a lot o time thinking about how I should make the card, which supplies to use, etc. But as soon as I saw the images from Muse and The Card Concept, I knew what I wanted to do. The sentiment stamp I used is from a clear stamps set from Verve Stamps, and the flowers are from an old set from Making Memories.

Muse Challenge #187 is this card by Tracey McNeely:


And this is how I interpreted it:


From this ice cream at The Card Concept #59, I picked up the colors for my flowers, and I chose the concept Clean & Simple:

A pink Christmas

Yesterday’s second Christmas was made for sketch #379 at Kortskissen. It’s interesting to see how all of us in the design team have interpreted the sketch in different ways. 😀 We’d love to see YOUR take on the sketch, too!
