Christmas in July part 1

Another week when I’m late with my blog posts. I thought I’d manage to do everything in time now when being off work, but obviously not. Here’s my card for sketch #418 at Kortskissen. Remember we never have any deadlines, so you can let our sketches inspire you whenever you want and we’d love to see your cards.

The trees scene on my card is recycled from an old store bought Christmas card, and Happy Holidays is a peel off sticker.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

And to CAS-ual Fridays challenge #178:

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. ūüėČ

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:

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.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

 

Happy Hoppy Easter

So. I was making a card for challenge #49 at Inspired By All The Little Things. Where the inspirational image is a picture of a bunny in grey and black, with an allover rustic look. And I end up making a bright glitter card, lol. Well, I decided to go for the bunny theme, and this paper was the only thing with bunnies that I had in my stash. And no, unfortunately I dont know what brand the paper is. Egg is hand cut from another paper in the same series.

I used Freshly Made Sketches sketch #281 for the layout of my card:

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

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:

Still Christmas

One more Christmas card while I still have those Stamperia papers on my desk. This time¬†more clean and simple than yesterday’s card. Hopefully it’s CAS enough for CAS(E) This Sketch. I think so, as I’ve seen others using designer papers as background.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

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 P√•sk is Swedish for Happy Easter, and is from a clear stamps set by Sl√∂jd-Detaljer (it’s retired, but there are plenty of other clear stamps sets available).

I also 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 Sl√∂jd-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:

Hello!
