Together is a beautiful place to be

Weekend off work means cardmaking time! 😀 Here’s the first of two cards I made today The frame is an overlay I’ve had for years, that finally came to use. Sentiment is a non-brand clear stamp from Wish. I used Stella Says Sketch #501 for this card.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Kortskissen #391

Sketch #391 at Kortskissen is up an running. Come join us in the fun and show us how you interpret the sketch. 😀 Here’s my take on it.

I also submit this card to:

May your dreams come true…

Today’s card is made for two challenges – Veckans Skiss #67 and Color Throwdown #346. As almost always, clean and simple, since that’s the style I’m mostly drawn to.

60

My mom asked me to make a card she could give to her cousin on her 60th birthday. This is what I came up with, inspired by a sketch at Sketch Saturday and the current challenge at Color Throwdown.

From three to four

I quite enjoyed the extra challenge of making one card suitable for several challenges. So today I move up from yesterday’s three challenges to four challenges! The challenges are as follow:

A sketch (click on image to visit the challenge blog post):

Colors (click on image to visit the challenge blog post):

A code word (click on image to visit the challenge blog post) – texture:

ATCAS - code word texture

 

And a cue card (click on image to visit the challenge blog post) – shine:

Week 98 - Shine

And, here we go, the card! 😀 I guess the use of sketch and colors is quite obvious. The corrugated cardboard as well as the texture of the glitter cardstock, are for Texture. The pieces of glittery cardstock are for Shine. Shine as in being sprakly glittery, as well as having the shape of rays shining down.

Three challenges – one card

For the first time ever, I participate in several card challenges with the same card. Usually I make one card for each challenge. So it was kind of an extra challenge to make a card suitable for three challenges.

First challenge is Color Throwdown #294:

Challenge cards

Yesterday I made cards for several blog challenges. Unfortunately I forgot to post the ones for the challenges that had deadline yesterday, so I’m a bit late with those. Oh well, here we go with all of them:

The Play Date Cafe challenge

The Play Date Cafe challenge

My take on the challenge. The colors look a bit odd in the photo. What looks yellow IS more apricot, and the dark color IS steel blue, not dark grey or something.

Color Throwdown #187

After hardly making any cards at all for a few months, I suddenly felt the urge to participate in a card challenge. The ongoing challenge at The Color Throwdown has its deadline today, so here’s my last minute cards. Not only one, but actually two. For borth cards I used various paper scraps, rub-on sentiments, ribbon and pearls/rhinestones.

The colors

Du är en pärla (You are a pearl)

Life is about creating yourself.
