Things With Wings

Our new challenge at Through The Purple Haze is “Things With Wings“. As I love using butterflies on my creations, that’s of course what I chose for this challenge.

I’ve made a one layer card. First I stamped the large butterfly. I also stamped it on a post-it note, cut it out and placed it on the butterfly I had stamped on the card. Then I stamped the butterfly panel three times as background. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this technique, it’s called masking.

I’ve colored the stamped images with three shades of yellow/orange, and then filled in all the black on the large butterfly with black Sakura Glaze gel roller pen to make it pop out a bit.

I used CAS(E) this Sketch #229 for the layout of my card:

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Flowers and a bird

It’s already a new week, and we have a new sketch at Kortskissen. As always, we’d like to see your take on the sketch.

I interpreted the sketch quite freely.The things in the corners became flower patterned paper, and the diagonal text is a tag on my card.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Brown And Black part 1

I’ve been making a whole bunch of cards with papers from the most wonderful paperpack Steampunk by Stamperia, along with a few other papers in the same color scheme. As I said, a whole bunch, so I’ll divide them into a few blog posts. Here’s part 1.

I submit the first of these cards to the following challenges:

 

For this card, the only thing besides the papers, is a birthday stamp from Verses:

The Congratulations stamp on this card, is from Viva Las Vegastamps. The corners and border around the card is the paper print, but I completed the look with a corner stamp from Vilda Stamps just outside the Congratulations. I added some black rhinestones as decoration:

The sentiment on this card is from the stamp set “Stuff To Say” by Tim Holtz. The only thing I’ve added besides papers and stamped sentiment, are small black dots (with Sakura Glaze pen) along the border:

 

Butterfly congrats

Another quick card. I’ve only used two designer papers from DCWV’s Mariposa collection. The left part with the green shape, butterfly, flowers and the background is one single piece, then a thin line of gold glitter washi tape and another paper to the right. Grattis (Swedish for “congrats”) which is from a clear stamp set by Slöjd-Detaljer, is gold embossed.

I submit my card to the following challenges:

May the Valentine greetings begin!

My second card for the year, and the first Valentine’s card. I guess I’ll be making a few of them. For this card I’ve used a heart from a clear stamp set by Verve Stamps. Happy Valentine’s Day are two seperate stamps, from a clear stamp set by Simon Says Stamp.

As always, I participate with my card in several challenges. I love to make it extra challenging by combining various challenges in one card.
First, I used CAS(E) this Sketch #202:

 

And here we go with the rest:

Traditional Christmas

Second and last Christmas card for day is in traditional colors. When making a card for a vintage themed challenge, my first thought was brown and/or sepia. But thinking about it, red, gold and green works just as fine for a vintage look. So, here we go with this time’s challenges. Thank God it’s Christmas – I wouldn’t be able to combine this many challenges in one card if most blogs didn’t have Christmas challenges. 😉

Kortskissen #380

My card for this week’s Kortskissen is a dark grungy Halloween card. Maybe I should stop making Halloween cards soon, as I don’t send any. My stash is getting pretty big.

I have used designer papers from K-Designs (I love their papers!). The owl image if from a sheet of vintage Halloween images from Slöjd-Detaljer, and the Happy Halloween stamp is from Deep Red.
