Travel card

My card for Kortskissen sketch #398 is a wish for a pleasant journey. I also submit it to My Time To Craft Challenge #340 – Travel and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge – Anything Goes.

Brown And Black part 1

I’ve been making a whole bunch of cards with papers from the most wonderful paperpack Steampunk by Stamperia, along with a few other papers in the same color scheme. As I said, a whole bunch, so I’ll divide them into a few blog posts. Here’s part 1.

I submit the first of these cards to the following challenges:

 

For this card, the only thing besides the papers, is a birthday stamp from Verses:

The Congratulations stamp on this card, is from Viva Las Vegastamps. The corners and border around the card is the paper print, but I completed the look with a corner stamp from Vilda Stamps just outside the Congratulations. I added some black rhinestones as decoration:

The sentiment on this card is from the stamp set “Stuff To Say” by Tim Holtz. The only thing I’ve added besides papers and stamped sentiment, are small black dots (with Sakura Glaze pen) along the border:

 

Butterfly congrats

Another quick card. I’ve only used two designer papers from DCWV’s Mariposa collection. The left part with the green shape, butterfly, flowers and the background is one single piece, then a thin line of gold glitter washi tape and another paper to the right. Grattis (Swedish for “congrats”) which is from a clear stamp set by Slöjd-Detaljer, is gold embossed.

I submit my card to the following challenges:

Happy Birthday

I decided to make some quick and simple cards, by using pieces of designer paper that hardly need any decorations at all. For this first one, I used two different papers from DCWV Mariposa collection, and mounted them on gold glitter paper before adhering to a dark brown cardbase. Happy Birthday is from a clear stamp set from Simon Says Stamp, and gold embossed.

I almost freaked out when I saw Country View’s February challenge – to make a card in 30 minutes or less. I use to spend hours on a card. This one was made in less than 30 minutes though.

I also submit my card to Simon Say’s Wednesday Challenge – Anything goes.

A Little Girl

I made this card for my boss, who just became a dad for the second time. The sentiment on the card says “A little girl”. This is my contribution for sketch #397 at Kortskissen. As always we’d love to see your take on our sketch. 🙂

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Hearts on Valentine’s Day

Even though it’s too late to send Valentine cards now, as it is Valentine’s Day today, I still made a card with hearts and a love greeting. I have used scraps of various designer papers, and a clear stamp from Paper Smooches.

I submit my card to the following bunch of challenges:

Blue hugs

“Hugs” (that’s what the Swedish “Kram” means) in navy and off white is my card for sketch #396 at Kortskissen. Come play with us, we’d love to see your take on the sketch! 😀

I also submit this card to the following challenges:

With Love

I’m no big fan of soft pastel colors. Still I managed to make such a card. 🙂 I was inspired by Tuesday Throwdown’s challenge #329, Heart Strings (I used ribbon and wooden hearts), and The Card Concept #66, Love and Romance (clean and layered concept). And, Sketch Saturday’s sketch #450:

As square as it gets

I think it’s quite a while since I last participated in one of Inspired by All the Little Things’ challenges. I really liked the photo for their challenge #42, and got inspired by the black letters, red heart and wooden background.

I also submit my card to:

A lilac Christmas

Two of the challenges I made this card for, have the themes Girly and Cute. Those who know me, know that I don’t do girly. Or cute. Ever. So yes, it was quite a challenge for me, and this is the girliest and cutest I managed to make. Both the girl image and the God Jul (Merry Christmas) stamp are from Slöjd-Detaljer.
