A splash of blue

I wonder if I have set my own record now, on how many challenges one card can be for?! This card is for the following challenges:

Addicted to CAS #71 – Blue
CAS on Sunday #66 – Splash
Less is More #239 – Sprays/mists
Shopping Our Stash #216 – Splish Splash
CAS(E) this Sketch #138 – The below sketch

A small note in navy colors

Time Out’s challenge #38 is to be inspired by the photo below. I picked up the colors, and realizing that those navy colors are also air mail colors, I used papers from Pink Paislee’s Pen Pals collection and a type writer from Papermania that I got ages ago but have for some reason not used until now. The layout of the card is inspired by sketch #201 at Freshly Made Sketches.

Green and red Christmas

A Christmas card for Merry Monday #169 – green, dark green and red, and for the sketch at The Paper Players #259. I’m absolutely not pleased with it, but being busy I won’t have time to make new cards for these challenges.

Live in the sunshine

This card is made for two different challenges, and it was a real challenge to make it! I don’t use flowers on my cards – one of the challenges was to use roses. I preferable don’t do round shapes – the other challenge featured a circle on the sketch. Phew! But I made it! Although it’s not really a real circle. But I believe that the pattern on the paper counts as a round shape, don’t you think? 😀

Allsorts challenge #325 is to use roses, and Sketch Saturday #375 is the sketch I used.

Butterflies again

As I mentioned in a previous post, I love to use butterflies on my cards. Imagine my luck when I found a challenge blog that always use butterflies, in combination with something else, for their challenges! The blog is called Butterfly Challenge, and their latest (ending today) challenge was to use washi. I used two colors of glitter washi.

This card is also for sketch #129 at Cardabilities.

Using acetate

I haven’t figured out how and for what to use my acetate from We R Memory Keepers. When I was about to make my card for CAS(E) This Sketch #137 last night, I thought that the acetate would be perfect or that layout.

It can be difficult to adhere acetate without glue, tape etc showing through. A tip is that if your acetate is patterned, place the adhesive behind the patterns. Mine is striped, so I adhered it with strips of double-sided tape along the back of the stripes.

All products used can be purchased at Slöjd-Detaljer.

Butterflies and layers

I have this thing for butterflies. I don’t like using flowers on my cards. Butterflies alwys work though. 🙂 This card if for two challenges. First for Kortskissen’s sketch #319 (where there are butterflies on the sketch, you can of course use whatever you want, it doesn’t have to be butterlies!). The card is also for Shopping Our Stash #215, where the challenge is to use layers. This means I couldn’t make a clean & simple card this time. 😉

Fall greetings

A very quick last minute card I made for Freshly Made Sketches #200. Maybe it works with no elements/decorations, as the colors are so vivid.
