Did you say midsummer?

This weekend we’re celebrating Midsummer in Sweden. I’m thinking Christmas today, though. I just discovered a Christmas card challenge blog I didn’t know of, Merry Monday Christmas. Trying to get back on track with my one Christmas card a week (which only lasted for the first few weeks of the year), I had a go with their challenge #163 which was to make a card in red and white. For the layout of the card, I used CAS(E) this Sketch #128.

Supplies:

Ink – VersaFine Black Onyx

Only two colors…

I can’t remember if I have ever created a card with just black and one other color. I’m quite satisfied with how it turned out so I’ll probably make more in the future, although other colors and other layout Or the same layout again, maybe. It’s from a sketch at clean&simple stamping, and I really liked creating from it. 😀

Have a nice summer

When I started making this card, I wasn’t sure of the purpose. But after picking out paper suitable for both the sketch and the color theme the card is made for, I realized that with clouds and a butterly, a summer greeting was perfect for the card. The sentiment means “Have a nice summer” in English. So, the challenges I made the card for, are CAS(E) This Sketch #127 and The Paper Players #249.

Hi!

Mother’s Day

Yeah, I know it’s been three weeks since Mother’s Day (in Sweden we celebrate it on the last Sunday of May). But there are still some past cards I haven’t posted yet. I made two different designs in two different colors. No, I don’t have two moms, LOL. I made a few extra to sell.

Have A Nice (Nautical) Summer

Yay, I’ve made a card! My second card this week, after not having crafted much at all for a while. This card is for two different challenges, Mojo Monday #401 and Colour Me…! #75. The color scheme made me think nautical, for which I found it suitable with a “Have a nice summer” greeting.
