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 #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:

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.

Birthday hug

I’ve been a bad girl this week. Or at least a bad blogger. I haven’t blogged my cards for this week’s new challenges. So sorry about that. Here’s the first one, my card for Kortskissen sketch #413. As always, there are no time limits for our sketches, you can take part any time you want and leave us a comment.

I’ve used designer papers from the amazing Stamperia, and a sentiment from a clear stamp set by Slöjd-Detaljer.

Dog Lover Birthday

I’ve had this dog paper (I have a cat one as well) for years without using it. As there are a couple of blog challenges with the theme animals right now (see links at the bottom of this post), it’s perfect to use for a dog lover birthday greeting.

I have used MFT Sketch #333 for the layout of my card, and Paper Play Sketches color challenge for the colors:

A Purple CAS Card

When I saw Freshly Made Sketches sketch #283, I knew I wanted to make a really clean & simple card. At the bottom of the card, I have adhered a piece of striped overlay (acetate), and then added a thin border sticker along the edge of the overlay. The sentiment, a clear stamp from Technique Tuesday, is embossed with white embossing powder. I added a few pearls in the corner of the card. That’s it.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Slightly romantic…

This card is sligthly different from most cards I make. It’s got a bit more romantic style – pastel colors, doily border punched paper… It’s my card for sketch #405 at Kortskissen. As always, you are welcome to join us and show how you interpret our sketch.

I also submit this card to Shopping Our Stash Challenge #298 – Using punches and/or dies (I used a border punch) and to The Card Concept Challenge #71 (clean and layered style):

Neon Flowers

For today’s card, I stamped flowers on neon colored cardstock, cut them out and adhered to the cardbase. Both flower stamps are ancient and for sure not available anywhere anymore. 😉 Happy Birthday is though, it’s part of my fave stamp set by Simon Says Stamp. I’ve added Glossy Accents in the middle of the large flowers, and sequins in the middle of the small flowers.

I made this card for Muse Challenge #211. I interpreted the colorful circles in the card, as flowers on my card. And kept the sentiment in the bottom right corner.

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:

Black, White and Red

Today’s therapy: Making a card. 🙂 The patterned background paper is an old paper called Paintables by Prima Marketing. Yes, old it is. Since way before coloring for adults became popular. It actually says 2007 on the paper! I’ve colored it with Staedtler Triplus pens. The sentiment is from one of my fave clear stamp sets, Wishing You by Verve Stamps. I love how you can mix and match the “Wishing you” with various texts.

I used MFT sketch #325 for the design:
