Butterflies for mom

Kortskissen sketch #408 is now online. As always, we’d love to see your take on it. Here’s mine. I’ve used a butterfly paper from DCWV Mariposa collection, and a stamp (which is Swedish for “The Worlds Best Mom” from Inkido. I started with nine squares, but wasn’t really happy with how it turned out. So I added gold glitter stripes (stickers from Panduro) inbetween the squares.

I also submit this card to the following challenges:

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:

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.

Another Easter card

One more Easter card for today. As always, I submit my card to a few 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:

A shimmery Christmas

I’m supposed to be making Christmas cards all year round. Yeah, right. It’s about a month since the last one. But here’s one, finally. The entire image, with houses, Merry Christmas, and snowflakes on the left side, is from a designer paper. Unfortunately I don’t remember which brand.

I have matted the paper on brown cardstock, and then on glittery offwhite paper. I filled in Merry Christmas with Sakura Stardust gel pen. In the corners I’ve added snowflakes that I’ve punched out with Martha Stewart punches from offwhite and white glittery paper.

I submit this card to the following challenges:

 

Snowflakes

It’s always time for Christmas cards, right? Here’s one in blue and white with snowflakes. The background is a vellum with glittery snowflakes print. In the corners I’ve added snowflake stickers from a monthly club kit I subscribed to years ago. God Jul, Swedish for Merry Christmas, is a clear stamp from Slöjd-Detaljer.

I’ve used sketch #395 from Kortskissen for the layout. We (design team members) would love to see how you interpret the sketch! 😀
