New design team member

I’m proud to announce that I’m a new design team member at Through The Purple Haze! 😀 Our challenge #123 has the theme Thank You / Gratitude. We’d love to see your cards, so come join us! Here’s mine:

Rainbow Colors

Challenge #171 at CAS-ual Fridays was the theme Rainbows. I might have gone slightly over the top with that on my card, LOL. Well, at least you can’t accuse me for using boring colors. 😉

I’ve used papers from K-Design, and a dotted washi tape. The flower is a black outline sticker, in which I drew inlines with a white Posca pen. Happy Mother’s Day is a stamp from Simon Say’s Stamp.

I used MFT sketch #328 for the layout of my card:

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.

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.

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.

Brown And Black part 2

Quite some time ago, I posted a few cards I made with the gorgeous Steampunk papers from Stamperia. Here are a few more from that cardmaking session:

Count Your Blessings

The “Count Your Blessings” square is part of an (five years) old paper from BoBunny. I let its colors decide the colors for the entire card – yellow, light blue and brown. The layout of the card is inpsired by Mojo Monday sketch #492:

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.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

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:
