Happy Hoppy Easter

So. I was making a card for challenge #49 at Inspired By All The Little Things. Where the inspirational image is a picture of a bunny in grey and black, with an allover rustic look. And I end up making a bright glitter card, lol. Well, I decided to go for the bunny theme, and this paper was the only thing with bunnies that I had in my stash. And no, unfortunately I dont know what brand the paper is. Egg is hand cut from another paper in the same series.

I used Freshly Made Sketches sketch #281 for the layout of my card:

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Spring is in the Air

Let’s move on from Christmas to spring. The sentiment on this card is Swedish for “Spring is in the air”. I first thought I’d emboss it in gold, but decided that copper embossing powder would make it stand out a bit more. The entire front of the card is from a paper from DCWV’s old collection Mariposa. I adhered a couple of stripes of thin glitter washi, and mounted the paper on copper metallic paper, then on a green metallic cardbase. I find taking photos of shiny blingy things is so difficult, but I tried my best.

With it’s theme, this card is perfect for QKR Stampede Challenge #326 – Spring is in the Air. Also That’s Crafty – Bling It Up Challenge. For Just Us Girls Challenge #386, I had thought of going for both the butterfly and the lime green color, but I ended up using only the butterfly theme.

Happy Birthday Big Guy

A cool graphiti card for a cool guy. All designer paper used, including the star which is handcut, are from K-Design. The sentiment is a combination of two different stamps – “Happy Birthday” is from Verve Stamps’ Chevron Love set, and “Big Guy” is from Paper Smooches’ Daddy Yo set.

I submit my card to the following challenges:

Still Christmas

One more Christmas card while I still have those Stamperia papers on my desk. This time more clean and simple than yesterday’s card. Hopefully it’s CAS enough for CAS(E) This Sketch. I think so, as I’ve seen others using designer papers as background.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

From Easter to Christmas

Making a card for IN{K}SPIRE_me’s challenge #293 – mint, brown and white – I immediately knew I wanted to use papers from one of Stamperia’s Christmas paper sets. I know I’ve mentioned it before, but I have to say once again that Stamperia is one of my fave paper designers. The circle with snowflakes is a stamp from Creative Epressions, which I embossed with chocolate brown embossinpowder, and then cut out the image around the edges of the stamped circle.

I used the sketch from The Crafter’s Cafe challenge #169 for the layout of my card.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Chicken and eggs

I really liked the clean and simple look of the sketch at Fusion’s Paris Rain challenge, and I decided to go with the sketch only and not the image. I made an Easter card with an old paper (yes, I have lots of old supplies after working in a scrapbook store for five years, before my five years at a craft store…) from Forma Hantverk. Glad Påsk is Swedish for Happy Easter, and is from a clear stamps set by Slöjd-Detaljer (it’s retired, but there are plenty of other clear stamps sets available).

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Black, White and Red

Today’s therapy: Making a card. 🙂 The patterned background paper is an old paper called Paintables by Prima Marketing. Yes, old it is. Since way before coloring for adults became popular. It actually says 2007 on the paper! I’ve colored it with Staedtler Triplus pens. The sentiment is from one of my fave clear stamp sets, Wishing You by Verve Stamps. I love how you can mix and match the “Wishing you” with various texts.

I used MFT sketch #325 for the design:

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

You Rock

A card for someone who rocks. 🙂 I have used papers from K-Designs, steampunk stamp from Inkadinkado, letter stickers and border stickers from Tim Holtz Industrious stickers. I’ve had the guitar sticker since forever and have no clue where it’s from.

I submit my card to the following challenges:

One more card for Kortskissen

Our sketch at Kortskissen this week inspired me to make one more card. I’ve used ancient (well, almost) papers from DCWV, and stamps from my fave clear stamp set from Verve Stamps.

I also submit this card to:
