Christmas in July part 2

Our challenge #174 at Cardz 4 Guyz is Christmas in July. It’s never too early to get started with those Christmas cards! C’mon and show us your Christmas creations. 😀

All papers on my card are from a Christmas paper pad by Stamperia, and the sentiment is a stamp from Kortmakaren.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Christmas in July part 1

Another week when I’m late with my blog posts. I thought I’d manage to do everything in time now when being off work, but obviously not. Here’s my card for sketch #418 at Kortskissen. Remember we never have any deadlines, so you can let our sketches inspire you whenever you want and we’d love to see your cards.

The trees scene on my card is recycled from an old store bought Christmas card, and Happy Holidays is a peel off sticker.

Things With Wings

Our new challenge at Through The Purple Haze is “Things With Wings“. As I love using butterflies on my creations, that’s of course what I chose for this challenge.

I’ve made a one layer card. First I stamped the large butterfly. I also stamped it on a post-it note, cut it out and placed it on the butterfly I had stamped on the card. Then I stamped the butterfly panel three times as background. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this technique, it’s called masking.

I’ve colored the stamped images with three shades of yellow/orange, and then filled in all the black on the large butterfly with black Sakura Glaze gel roller pen to make it pop out a bit.

I used CAS(E) this Sketch #229 for the layout of my card:

Kortskissen sketch 417

Getting home from my vacation trips, I’m now back to blogging again. First post for today, is my card for Kortskissen sketch #417. The sentiment I’ve used, is from a clear stamp set by Slöjd-Detaljer.

As always there’s no deadline on our sketches, so you have as much time as you want to make your take on the sketch.

Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge 173

I’m slightly late with this blog post. Being busy before going away on vacation, I forgot to make a scheduled post. But, here it is now, my card for the latest challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz. Our theme this time is Beside The Sea.

Background is an old paper (you should see my huge stash of papers I’ve collected through the years), I think it’s from Maja Design. The lighthouse is a stamp I designed for Reprint Hobby many years ago, and the “Trevlig Sommar” (Swedish for “Have a nice simmer”) is from a summer set I designed for Skapa Hobby (no longer available).
