Heart and Flowers

Today’s first card (I’m not sure if there will actually be any more today) has a cut out heart covered in stripes of washi tapes, and flowers cut out from a coloring paper (I didn’t have any suitable flower stamps). Grattis is a clear stamp from Slöjd-Detaljer.

I made this card for Time Out challenge #83 where we should CASE a card by Hannelie. I also participate in several other challenges with this card, see full list below the images.

Card with coloring page

As soon as I saw the card at the latest Muse challenge, I knew I wanted to use a mandala from one of my coloring books. The mandalas were too large though, so I ended up using another colored page for my card. I’ve outlined everything with white Posca pen to lighten up the image a bit. “Till Mamma”, Swedish for “For Mum” is a small “till” stamp from a set by Slöjd-Detaljer, and alphabet stickers (I don’t know which brand) for “Mamma”.

A Mother’s Day card

I’m sorry, I’m too tired tonight to write any details about this card, I’ll simply just show the pictures… I used Mojo Monday’s sketch #495:

Kortskissen 404

We have a new sketch at Kortskissen, and would love to see your take on it. For my card I used a few different papers from that “paper pad without name”, lol. The stamp is from VivaLasVegaStamps.

Peace Love Joy

I take a huge leap here, from the spring card earlier today, to a Christmas card. The lovely image with the cute birds is from Slöjd-Detaljer. Peace Love Joy is from a clear stamps set that I got with a magazine a few years ago. The background is a snowflake printed overlay from Making Memories that I’ve adhered to green cardstock. I used the shetch at MFT Sketch Challenge #327 for the layout of my card:

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Flowers and swirls

I found our sketch #403 at Kortskissen quite challenging, and ended up interpreting it quite freely. Letting the flowery S shape be swirls and flowers. The paper I’ve used is a ten years old (!!!) paper from Fancy Pants. Sentiment is Swedish for “Spring is in the air” and is a stamp by Carolina Emdin.

From Easter to Christmas

Making a card for IN{K}SPIRE_me’s challenge #293 – mint, brown and white – I immediately knew I wanted to use papers from one of Stamperia’s Christmas paper sets. I know I’ve mentioned it before, but I have to say once again that Stamperia is one of my fave paper designers. The circle with snowflakes is a stamp from Creative Epressions, which I embossed with chocolate brown embossinpowder, and then cut out the image around the edges of the stamped circle.

I used the sketch from The Crafter’s Cafe challenge #169 for the layout of my card.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Chicken and eggs

I really liked the clean and simple look of the sketch at Fusion’s Paris Rain challenge, and I decided to go with the sketch only and not the image. I made an Easter card with an old paper (yes, I have lots of old supplies after working in a scrapbook store for five years, before my five years at a craft store…) from Forma Hantverk. Glad Påsk is Swedish for Happy Easter, and is from a clear stamps set by Slöjd-Detaljer (it’s retired, but there are plenty of other clear stamps sets available).

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

You Rock

A card for someone who rocks. 🙂 I have used papers from K-Designs, steampunk stamp from Inkadinkado, letter stickers and border stickers from Tim Holtz Industrious stickers. I’ve had the guitar sticker since forever and have no clue where it’s from.

I submit my card to the following challenges:

A flower for you

My card for this week’s sketch at Kortskissen is a small CAS (clean & simple) card that’s perfect for enclosing when giving flowers to someone. The sentiment is Swedish for “A flower for you”. That stamp is from a clear stamp set I designed for Slöjd-Detaljer, unfortunately not available any more though. The flower stamp if from a Heidi Grace set I’ve had for years.

Besides Kortskissen, I also submit my card to the following challenges:
