Flowers and a bird

It’s already a new week, and we have a new sketch at Kortskissen. As always, we’d like to see your take on the sketch.

I interpreted the sketch quite freely.The things in the corners became flower patterned paper, and the diagonal text is a tag on my card.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Happy Birthday Big Guy

A cool graphiti card for a cool guy. All designer paper used, including the star which is handcut, are from K-Design. The sentiment is a combination of two different stamps – “Happy Birthday” is from Verve Stamps’ Chevron Love set, and “Big Guy” is from Paper Smooches’ Daddy Yo set.

I submit my card to the following challenges:

It’s Christmas time

Christmas might have been just a couple of weeks ago, but I’ll prepare for next Christmas season by making Christmas cards all year. For this card, I’ve used a snowman image from Slöjd-Detaljer, and a “Merry Christmas & Happy New Year” (in Swedish) clear stamp from a set I designed for Skapa Hobby (no longer available).

I submit my card to the following challenges:

Snowmen and snowwomen

I’ve decided that today will be dedicated to cardmaking. Christmas cardmaking that is. Here’s the first one. The snowmen family is a stamp I designed for Skapa Hobby (no longer available) years ago. Somehow I don’t like to use stamp images I have made but this it pretty okay. I love smiley faces. 😀

I made the card for a bunch of challenges:

Let it snow

A Christmas card in red and gold. The lovely winter scenery is from a paper by Stamperia (I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I love their products!). I stamped a circle stamp with snowflakes, from Phil Martin Sentimentally Yours, on the round image, and embossed with gold embossing powder before I cut out the image. I punched snowflakes with two different Martha Stewart punches in golden paper. God Jul at the bottom of the card are peel-off stickers (outline stickers). I added Stickles Star Dust glitter glue along the snow on the image and in the middle of each snowflake.

I submit this card to The Paper Players challenge #319 – Tic Tac Toe (I chose red, glitter and snowflakes) and to A Gem of A Challenge #181 – Snowflakes.

It is also my card for this week’s Kortskissen, sketch #381.

A pink Christmas

Yesterday’s second Christmas was made for sketch #379 at Kortskissen. It’s interesting to see how all of us in the design team have interpreted the sketch in different ways. 😀 We’d love to see YOUR take on the sketch, too!
