Christmas in July

It seems like Christmas in July is a thing. So I’d better post this year’s only Christmas card this far, before July is over. I made it a few months back though.

I actually used the front of a 6″x6″ paper pad for the card, only added some washi stripes and a couple of snowflakes.

Steampunk

Once again I’ll try to blog “old” cards. As you have noticed, I don’t blog regularly at all nowadays.

Here’s my card for Kortskissen’s sketch #561. In the photos, the square frame looks orange. It is more copper IRL though.

A Delayed Easter Card

The updates of my blog aren’t very frequently, but I’ll try to change that. I will work more on making cards and photos and written information for them, to add to my Etsy shop.

However, here’s a card that didn’t make it to the shop. It’s basically the one and only Easter card I made this year! I realized I still had a few left from last year, to get sent out to family.

I used sketch 560 at Kortskissen for the layout. We get rather few responses to our sketches, so please, we’d LOVE to see what you can do with them. Rembember, there are never any deadlines! 😀

My Card:

Now on to you, show us your cards! 😀 Of cours it mustn’t be Easter themed as Easter is now over. Only your imagination sets the limits. 🙂

Oh and by the way, that cute Easter basket is on sale at Slöjd-Detaljer right now! 😀 50% off! Not sure about shipping costs overseas, but I can always help if needed.

Good Luck

Here’s a card I made for a colleague at our head quarters, who will leave after many years, to spread her wings and start a new job. We will miss her so much!

The card was easy made, with designer paper in the background, paper doily, and a flower imgage. Still turned out pretty stunning (am I allowed to say so myself?)

Kortskissen sketch #525

I thought the romantic style wasn’t my style, but I guess this card has quite a romantic style. Made with papers from 13arts Blue Magnolia. Grattis is from an old clear stamp set I designed for Skapa Hobby, no longer available.

As always, we’d love to see your take on the sketch. 🙂

It’s All About Circles

I had just the right paper for making my card for Kortskissen’s sketch #519. With all those circles in the background I decided to not add any decorations, to keep it from being too cluttered.

Another Past Flower Card

Here’s my card for Kortskissen’s flower themed sketch #521. Papers from LemonCraft’s Fresh Summer, and stamp from Slöjd-Detaljer.

Blue Flower Wheel

Here’s my card for last week’s sketch at Kortskissen. Which you can still make a card for, we don’t have any deadlines. 🙂

I’ve used papers from Stamperia’s Blue Land, and a stamp from a clear stamps set from Slöjd-Detaljer.

Kortskissen Sketch 524

Long time no see AGAIN. I’ll do my best to get back into updating the blog more often. I have a couple of weeks vacation right now, so that’ll give me some time to spend on my blog (and cardmaking and other crafty things).

We have a new sketch at Kortskissen, the last sketch with flower theme (which we’ve had for all sketches during July). I made a bright yellow card. Flowers are cut out from a designer paper I’ve had for many years and outlined with black Posca pen. Stamp is from a clear stamp set from Slöjd-Detaljer (and designed by yours truly 😉 ).

Mass Producing

I’ve joined a Swedish Facebook group which is about sending cards to other group members. Most members send postcards, but as I’m an avid cardmaker I want to send my own cards. Keeping up with the cardmaking for it, I made a bunch of similar cards using various paper scraps I had. Sentiment is from a clear stamps set I designed for Slöjd-Detaljer, and says something like “Pull yourself together and do something unnecessary”.
