Kortskissen 428

At first, I found our sketch #428 at Kortskissen quite challenging. But when I found a piece of chevron patterned paper in my stash, I immediately knew the layout of my card. I also happened to find some old rhinestone frames from Prima Marketing that I had completely forgot about, and one of them was the perfect size for the paper doily. Stamps is from Verve Stamps.

D is for Date

Our current challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz is “Something beginning with the letter D”. I couldn’t figure out having any suitable decorations or stamps for Dogs, Dinosaurs… whatever… Just now, I realize I could’ve made a Christmas card with a Deer. Oh well. I went for Date as my D word.

Not That Fancy…

Our current challenge #176 at Cardz 4 Guyz is Fancy Folds. Anyone familiar with my cards, knows that I don’t do folds. I always make the good ol’ double folded cards. So, this was quite a bit of a challenge for me. And the fold I came up with might not be that fancy really. But that’s as fancy as I get, LOL.

The stamp on the front of the card is from Verve Stamps, and the one inside the card is from Simon Says Stamp. Both are from sets where you can combine different words/parts with each other, which I love.

A Green Card

When I saw our sketch #433 at Kortskissen, I imagined a card with rays going out from the center. Luckily, I found one such paper in my stash. The paper is from K-Designs, and the Grattis (Swedish for “congrats”) is from a clear stamp set by Slöjd-Detaljer.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

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:

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

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.
