One more card for Kortskissen

Our sketch at Kortskissen this week inspired me to make one more card. I’ve used ancient (well, almost) papers from DCWV, and stamps from my fave clear stamp set from Verve Stamps.

I also submit this card to:

Brown And Black part 1

I’ve been making a whole bunch of cards with papers from the most wonderful paperpack Steampunk by Stamperia, along with a few other papers in the same color scheme. As I said, a whole bunch, so I’ll divide them into a few blog posts. Here’s part 1.

I submit the first of these cards to the following challenges:

 

For this card, the only thing besides the papers, is a birthday stamp from Verses:

The Congratulations stamp on this card, is from Viva Las Vegastamps. The corners and border around the card is the paper print, but I completed the look with a corner stamp from Vilda Stamps just outside the Congratulations. I added some black rhinestones as decoration:

The sentiment on this card is from the stamp set “Stuff To Say” by Tim Holtz. The only thing I’ve added besides papers and stamped sentiment, are small black dots (with Sakura Glaze pen) along the border:

 

Butterfly congrats

Another quick card. I’ve only used two designer papers from DCWV’s Mariposa collection. The left part with the green shape, butterfly, flowers and the background is one single piece, then a thin line of gold glitter washi tape and another paper to the right. Grattis (Swedish for “congrats”) which is from a clear stamp set by Slöjd-Detaljer, is gold embossed.

I submit my card to the following challenges:

Happy Birthday

I decided to make some quick and simple cards, by using pieces of designer paper that hardly need any decorations at all. For this first one, I used two different papers from DCWV Mariposa collection, and mounted them on gold glitter paper before adhering to a dark brown cardbase. Happy Birthday is from a clear stamp set from Simon Says Stamp, and gold embossed.

I almost freaked out when I saw Country View’s February challenge – to make a card in 30 minutes or less. I use to spend hours on a card. This one was made in less than 30 minutes though.

I also submit my card to Simon Say’s Wednesday Challenge – Anything goes.

Birthday Flowers

Yay, day off work means cardmaking day. 😀 Here’s the first card. The “Happy Birthday” stamp is from K-Designs, and the flowers are cut out from an old designer paper from Pink Paislee.

This is my first submission to Muse Challenge for quite some time. For their challenge #200, this was the card to get inspired by:

And here’s my take:

I also sumbmit my card to the following challenges:

A winter birthday

Snowflake paper and decorations don’t necessarily need to be used for Christmas cards or winter greetings. It’s a perfect theme for a card to someone who has his/her birthday during the winter months. I’ve mixed three different designer papers on this card, two of them with snowflake print. Happy Birthday is a clear stamp from Verve Stamps, and the snowflake is a Martha Stewart punch.

It’s my card for sketch #392 at Kortskissen:

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

70

My cardmaking intention for today was to make Valentine cards. For some reason I ended up making a 70’s birthday card instead. The digits are Thickers I’ve had for ages. “Gratulerar” stamp if from Skapa hobby (no longer available), and the butterfly stamp is from Reprint. Both of them designed by me.

I’ve used sketch #314 at MFT Card Challenges for the layout:

I don’t participate in color challenges very often, but this time I did. IN{K}SPIRE_me Challenge #282:

I also submit the card to Butterfly Challenge #69 – Z is for Zero, and Everybody-Art-Challenge #394 – Anything goes.

Kortskissen #391

Sketch #391 at Kortskissen is up an running. Come join us in the fun and show us how you interpret the sketch. 😀 Here’s my take on it.

I also submit this card to:

Vintage style birthday card

Today’s card is a Happy Birthday card in a vintage kind of style. I submit it to the following challenges:

Colours of autumn

My third and last card for today is made with various designer papers, a couple of pieces of washi tape and stamps from my fave clear stamps set from Verve Stamps.

I used the sketch from City Crafter challenge #334 as inspiration for my card. I was also inspired by the colors in the photo at Inspired by All the Little Things #39. I also submit this card to Stampin’ Royalty challenge #350 – Celebrations, The Crafty Addicts challenge #36 – Autumn Colours, and Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge #175 – Shades of Autumn.
