Valentine’s Day

Yes, it’s Valentine’s Day today. And here’s a Valentine’s Day (“Alla Hjärtans Dag” is Swedish for “Valentine’s Day”) card I made for Kortskissen sketch #448. List of other challenges I participate in with this card is below the images.

I submit my card to the following challenges:

More Love

Yes, it’s that time of the year. Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. Many of the card challenge blogs I follow, have love and/or Valentine as themes for their current challenges. At Cardz 4 Guyz challenge #188, our theme is “Something beginning with L”. I chose Love. So did some of the others in the design team, while other chose other L words. This is my last card for Cardz 4 Guyz. It’s been fun to be a part of their talented design team, but I want to free more time for other crafts so therefore leaving the team.

This card is an example that things aren’t always what they appear to be, lol. I wanted a black and white striped paper for background. I didn’t have any, so I added stripes of black washi to a white paper. The LOVE chipboard letters had other colors, so I colored them with black marker. The heart was gray chipboard, so colored it with golden marker. The I and U were green (the only letter stickers I had in the perfect size). I tried to color them with white marker, but unfortunately the green still shine through i tiny little bit. The heart inbetween I and U was red with white dots, I colored it with white marker.

As layout and inspiration for this card, I used MFT Sketch #371, and the photo at Time Out Challenge #102. List of other challenges I participate in are beneath the images.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Where There Is Love

Here’s my first card for Kortskissen sketch #448. I actually made two cards for this week’s sketch, I’ll post the other one in a couple of days. As so often, I also participate in several other challenges as well, list is below the images.

I submit my card to the following challenges:

Black and Brown part 3

Ages ago I made a whole bunch of cards in brown and black, mainly using the gorgeous Steampunk paper pad from Italian brand Stamperia (my absolute fave brand of papers!). Anyway, I made two posts showing my cards. Here’s the third and final part.

Love

February being the month of love (Valentine’s Day), we have sketches with hearts all month at Kortskissen. Here’s the first one, sketch #447, and my card for it.

It was a very quick and easy card to make. The only thing I added was washi tape – one wide with the LOVE and one narrow black. The rest is the print on the paper.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

You Rock My World

I’m slow, I really am. I should’ve made this blog post already last week, when our current challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz went online. Our theme for challenge #187 is Music. Being a love of rock music and having some such stamps and papers on that theme, my card is all about rock. 🙂

The guitar is a stamp from Inkadinkado, whick I have stamped and embossed with silver embossing powder. All papers are from an old collection by Die Cuts With A View. “You Rock My World” is part of the print on the purple paper, but I filled it in with black marker and outlined it with white marker to make it pop out a bit.
