Sea You Soon

Ooh, I just realized I haven’t blogged my card for Through The Purple Haze challenge #132 – Marine/Sea theme. As I didn’t have any suitable stamp or image, I drew a seahorse on shimmery turquoise paper. The stripes of glitter washi symbolize the sea, and I thought it was a good play with words to write “Sea” instead of “See”. 🙂

Decos

A few months back, I started swapping decos* after a several years break from it. Here are the first ones I made.

*Deco; A small booklet, usually made on a certain theme, gets sent from person to person. Each person decorate a page on the given theme, and when all pages are filled, the deco is sent back to its owner.

Theme: Bright Colors

Theme: Mail

Theme: Music

Theme: Flowers

Theme: Things With Wings

Theme: Vintage

 

Not That Fancy…

Our current challenge #176 at Cardz 4 Guyz is Fancy Folds. Anyone familiar with my cards, knows that I don’t do folds. I always make the good ol’ double folded cards. So, this was quite a bit of a challenge for me. And the fold I came up with might not be that fancy really. But that’s as fancy as I get, LOL.

The stamp on the front of the card is from Verve Stamps, and the one inside the card is from Simon Says Stamp. Both are from sets where you can combine different words/parts with each other, which I love.

A Green Card

When I saw our sketch #433 at Kortskissen, I imagined a card with rays going out from the center. Luckily, I found one such paper in my stash. The paper is from K-Designs, and the Grattis (Swedish for “congrats”) is from a clear stamp set by Slöjd-Detaljer.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

A Vintage Card

Our theme for Through The Purple Haze challenge #131 is Vintage. I used my beloved papers from Stamperia on my card. One of the papers had a sentiment print, so no stamping needed. Decorations are lace and Prima Marketing bling swirls.

I also submit my card to Crafting By Designs August Anything Goes Challenge.

Thanks for Kortskissen

Today we have a new sketch for you at Kortskissen. There is no deadline, and we’d love to see your cards. No InLinkz, just leave a comment with a link to your card.

For my card, I used three doilies, which I outlined with black Posca pen. The flower is a peel off sticker, and the Tack (Swedish for Thanks) is a stamp from Slöjd-Detaljer.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Baby Boy

Welcome to our challenge #175 at Cardz 4 Guyz. The theme is “Tiny Fingers and Tiny Toes” – baby card for a boy. I chose to make a card without any sentiment. That way it can be used either as a birthday card for a small boy or as a welcome to the world card. I also made a similar card for a baby girl (see the bottom of this post). The teddy is a stamp I designed for Reprint more than ten years ago and hardly ever use. For some reason I don’t like to use my own stamp designs (unless it’s text/sentiment stamps).

Thinking of You

Here we go with the catching up with blog posts. This time it’s this week’s sketch #420 at Kortskissen. I wanted to do something special for the recepient of this card. ♥ On the front is an image of her (as well as my) fave band, and inside is a greeting to her from the band. (Thank you guys for taking the time to write, that really meant a lot.)

It’s The Little Things…

Another late blog post… At Through The Purple Haze, our challenge #130 is Anything Goes. So feel free to create whatever you wish. 😀 There is still four days until deadline, so you still have the chance to participate.

For my card, I used old papers from My Mind’s Eye, glittery washi tape and stamp from Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz collection “Good Thoughts”.
