This year’s first Mother’s Day card

I had such difficulties taking photos of this card. No matter how I tried to edit the images, you can’t really see the shimmer of the pale pink cardbase. Also the turquoise frames around the designer papers ar shiny and there are glitter elements on the flowers.

I used Catch The Bug Stella Says Sketch Challenge #507 for the layout of the card.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Happy Easter

We’re celebrating at Kortskissen, it’s our sketch #400 this week. Come join us, you can win some lovely prizes! One of them is this samp set from Slöjd-Detaljer (okay, it’s in Swedish, so only for Swedish speaking participants then):

I also submit my cards to the following challenges:

Christmas Angel

Today’s card is a Christmas card, made for 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:

Shiny green Christmas baubles

First card this week is a Christmas card (chances I’ll make more Christmas cards during the week are big). The baubles (and the ‘God Jul’) are peel off stickers (or outline stickers as I think they are called in the US) that I adhered to a very shiny green paper. Middle bauble is mounted with 3D foam squares for a bit of depth, and for extra bling I have put golden rhinestones on the baubles.

I found it soooo difficult to take photos of this card because of the shinyness (that’s not a word, is it?). Anyway. The card is made for the following challenges:

Happy Birthday

A birthday card in earth tones, with brand new (got it in the mail today) stamp from Verve Stamps. I’ve got the feeling this clear stamps set is gonna be a favorite of mine!

I submit the card to the following challenges:

It’s also my card for this week’s sketch at Kortskissen:

Loads of challenges

Second card for today is made for five different challenges, four of them from blogs I discovered just today:

  1. Card Mania challenge #82 – Lace and/or Pearls. I squeezed in both. I have loads of lace that I hardly ever use, I guess I should try to use it more often in my projects.
  2. Cards und More challenge #163 – Embossing. Sentiment is embossed with black embossing powder. And embossing is something I should do more often as well. I’ve become “lazy” and always stamp without embossing.
  3. Tuesday Throwdown #304 – Happy Birthday.
  4. Simon Says – Anything Goes.
  5. Sketch Saturday’s sketch #422.
