Last card before Christmas

My final post before Christmas. Now I won’t make any cards for some days. This time I’m posting three different cards, with the same layout. They are made for Kortskissen’s sketch #336, which I flipped. We’d love to see what you make from the sketch, so come join us! 😀

Trees it is

First Christmas card for today (I’m not sure yet if there will be more) is this card I made for three different challenges:

CASology week 176: Tree
CAS Colours & Sketches #154: Choose a past 2015 sketch and make it Christmassy (I chose sketch #113)
The Paper Players #275: A Color Challenge.

And yes, in Sweden we celebrate Christmas on the 24th.

Kortskissen #335

Okay. I started with the sketch. I intended to place the sentiment in the bottom left corner as in the sketch. I felt I needed something behind the text. Adding the flag, I felt the card got more balance if I moved the text a bit upwards. And I guess now you can’t even tell I actually got inspired by that sketch… However, we at Kortskisssen would like to see YOU make something from our sketch #335. You probably end up doing something much closer to it. 🙂

Rainbows

I’ll post a couple of cards later today. But until I’ve got started with the cardmaking, here are a few coloring pages. First picture is from Swedish book Kreativiet och mindfulness (the red one). The second one is a picture drawn by Kerry McQuaid, and the last one by Karla Dornacher. All colored with Faber-Castell PITT artist pen Brush.

My card for Freshly Made Sketches #215. It turned out quite boring but I guess I wasn’t really inspired to make a card even though I liked the sketch. The card is also for Shopping Our Stash #229: No stamping. I used Basic Grey alphabet stickers for the sentiment.

This week’s Kortskissen

I really like the sketch we have at Kortskissen this week. Not that I don’t use to like our sketches. But I find this very suitable for using paper scraps for those four boxes. I used Christmas papers that I’ve had for several years. It’s the first time I use this Christmas sentiment clear stamp, and I absolutely love it! You can purchase it at Slöjd-Detaljer (if you’re Swedish speaking that is, or I assume you don’t need a Swedish Christmas sentiment 😉 ).

It’s a bird!

Sometimes a card doesn’t need a stamped sentiment. When making this card for Merry Monday’s challenge #182 – Birds – I thought the paper itself did the talking. So I just added a flag in the upper right corner, and no sentiment.

Even more coloring

Yes, I have plenty of coloring pages to post. Here’s a few.

This first one is from the Swedish book “Kreativitet och mindulness” (the red one), colored with Faber-Castell PITT artist pen Brush:

Holiday leftovers

The current challenge at Jingle Belles has been to use leftovers on your card. I’ve had this piece with stamped Christmas greeting laying on my desk since forever. When looking through my Christmas paper stash, the piece of bird paper was the first I found, already in a perfect size. Then paired that with the red paper crap that I just needed to trim a little to make it fit.
