Ever had one of those moments when you want to make a card, but your brain doesn’t function? This card is the result of such a moment. I just couldn’t figure out what more to add, so a couple of designer papers and a stamp will have to do.
When I saw the Jingle Belles challenge to have at least one building on the card, I immediately knew I should use this house paper from Webster’s Pages. The stamp is from a Hero Arts set. Unfortunately I don’t remember where the background paper comes from.
I also submit this card to That’s Crafty’s Christmas in September challenge.
If you follow my blog, you probably know that I like to make clean & simple cards. With this card, I might have taken simple a little too far though. 😉 The stamps I used, the greeting and the snowflake, are both from KaiserCraft.
I submit the card to the following challenges:
Blue Christm… No, wait. My card says “Warm Winter Greetings”, not Christmas. Oh well, it’s blue anyway. A soft light blue, made for CAS on Sundays challenge #91 – pastel. And for Sketch Saturday’s sketch #429.
The snowflake paper is from Creative Club, years back, and the stamp is my design for Skapa Hobby.
Did you know it’s Christmas soon? Well, kind of soon. I really need to get my Christmas card making going. Here’s a card for Christmas Cards Challenge #40 – Christmas Lights. And for sketch #465 at Mojo Monday.
The only Christmas lights I could find in my stash, was in Panduro’s Deadly Sweet Christmas paper collection. The red and white striped paper with skulls you can see a glimpse of, is from the same collection.
It’s almost mid September, and I assume that means fall is here now. So what suits better than making a “autumn greetings” card. I’ve used various designer papers, matting each piece on dark brown cardstock. The leaf corners is a clear stamp I designed for Slöjd-Detaljer. That stamp set is retired now, but we have plenty of other stamps! 😀 “Hösthälsningar” (“autumn greetings”) is a stamp by Carolina Emdin.
As always, my card is made for a few blog challenges:
Yesterday’s card was made for three challenges:
It’s my very first time participing in a challenge for Just Us Girls and Fuzzy and Fancy, but surely not the last time. 🙂
The text is Swedish for “Have a safe trip” or “Have a nice travel”.
Every year I have the intention to make Christmas cards during the entire year, to have a stash large enough to both send and sell when it’s time for those cards. Yeah, right. This year I have obviously made ONE Christmas card, and that was during the first week in January. So, I’d better get started now.
On this card, I’ve used part of a sheet music background stamp from Artemio in the upper right corner, snowflake stamps from Kortmakaren, and the greeting stamp is from Hero Arts. All stamped images are embossed – the sheet music with black embossing powder and the rest with gold. The background is dotted cardstock. I have them in several colors but never use them. I need to change that!
I’m participating in a total of five challenges with this card:
The current Simon Says Wednesday Challenge is an easy one – Anything goes!
At Jingle Belles, the challenge is to use music elements.
Merry Monday #212 challenge us to use black, white and gold only.
Challenge #39 at Christmas Card Challenges is to be inspired by music notes:
For the layout of my card, I used the sketch from Inkspire Me #265:
Already Monday again!? Last week I only managed to make one card. I wish there was enough time to make cards every day. 🙂
This is my very fist entry to a Muse challenge. You’ll find their card to be inspired by at the bottom of this post. I loved everything about the card, and made a pretty similar one. The background, which is in the same color scheme as the Muse card, is an old scrapbooking paper I’ve had since forever. Grattis stamp and flower stamp are both from Slöjd-Detaljer (the flowers is a discontinued stamp though). It’s hard to get it to show in photos, but I outlined the text and the flowers with Sakura Gelly Roll stardust pen to make it pop out a bit.
A also submit this card to Simon Says Wednesday Challenge “It’s hip to be square” and to Addicted to CAS challenge #95 “Silhouette”.
The Muse card:
The current challenge at Simon Says, is to focus on the border. I decided to dig out my paper lace which has mainly just been gathering dust for a few years now… I managed to squeeze in three different laces and one washi tape border. The result is a card that is so NOT my usual style!
The sentiment is a clear stamp from Slöjd-Detaljer (did I mention that I love our stamps? 😀 ), and says “If there’s anything you dream of, may everything be granted, because you deserve everything”.
