A Heartful Valentine’s Card

I love this week’s sketch at Kortskissen, and made a clean and simple card. The only elements used is a wide heart patterned washi tape and some small stamped hearts that I added diamond glaze on.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Snowflakes

For sketch #439 at Kortskissen, I made a clean and simple card with silver snowflake stickers. The Merry Christmas stamp is from Slöjd-Detaljer.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Thinking of You

I can’t believe I’ve done it again! I’ve totally forgot to blog one of my cards. It’s for our challenge #181 at Cardz 4 Guyz – Remembrance/Sympathy/Thinking of You. I made a Thinking of You, card which would work fine as a Sympathy card as well.

Hi

We have a brand new sketch for you at Kortskissen. You are welcome to join us and show your take on the sketch. Here’s mine:

Sea You Soon

Ooh, I just realized I haven’t blogged my card for Through The Purple Haze challenge #132 – Marine/Sea theme. As I didn’t have any suitable stamp or image, I drew a seahorse on shimmery turquoise paper. The stripes of glitter washi symbolize the sea, and I thought it was a good play with words to write “Sea” instead of “See”. 🙂

Thanks for Kortskissen

Today we have a new sketch for you at Kortskissen. There is no deadline, and we’d love to see your cards. No InLinkz, just leave a comment with a link to your card.

For my card, I used three doilies, which I outlined with black Posca pen. The flower is a peel off sticker, and the Tack (Swedish for Thanks) is a stamp from Slöjd-Detaljer.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

One more mom?

LOL, no. I only have one mom (whom by the way is the world’s very best mom). I’ve made a few extra Mother’s Day cards though, in case someone else wants a card for their mom. 🙂 I kept this card very simple, as I think the colorful designer paper by K-Designs doesn’t ask for a lot of other details on the card. The sentiment stamp (Swedish for “The World’s Best Mom”) is from Inkido. As only embellishment I added three heart stickers, following the same color scheme as the paper.

This card is made for AAA Cards Game #89 – Bright and beatiful:

The layout of the card is inspired by Freshly Made Sketches sketch #287:

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:

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.
