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).

Adore

It’s time for a new challenge at Through The Purple Haze! 😀 Our challenge #128 is Spots and/or Stripes. I went for both on my yellow card, all made with various papers from an old My Mind’s Eye collection. Also the word “Adore” is from one of the papers. The only other decoration I’ve added is a rhinestone swirl from Prima Marketing.

Kortskissen #415

Summer vacation is here, and I’m busy with travelling here and there. Squeezing in a blog post inbetween. This week’s sketch at Kortskissen is online. As always, there is no time limit, you can participate whenever you want. Here’s my card:

New at Cardz 4 Guyz

I feel proud and honored to be a new design team member at the Cardz 4 Guyz challenge blog. My first card as a part of the team, is “Stars”, which is the challenge #172 theme. Come join us and show is your star cards! 😀

The background on my card is an old star background stamp from Slöjd-Detaljer. Guitar stamp is from Inkadinkado, and the larger stars is a stamp I don’t know the brand of. Everything stamped is embossed with black embossing powder. You Rock are various letter stickers.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Red Black and White

Monday means we have a new sketch at Kortskissen, and as always, we’d like to see your take on it. I went for a card in red, black and white, with a sentiment stamp from Slöjd-Detaljer.


I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Pink it is

Challenge #127 at Through The Purple Haze was supposed to be monochromatic. But since all of us happened to make pink cards, the color pink is the challenge instead. Come joing us – we’d love to see your pink creations!

I’ve used several stamps for this card. Sentiment is from VerveStamps, corner coggs from Inkadinkado, small butterfly from a non-brand set from Wish, and larger butterfly is my own design for Reprint.
