One more card for Kortskissen

Our sketch at Kortskissen this week inspired me to make one more card. I’ve used ancient (well, almost) papers from DCWV, and stamps from my fave clear stamp set from Verve Stamps.

I also submit this card to:

Happy Easter

We’re celebrating at Kortskissen, it’s our sketch #400 this week. Come join us, you can win some lovely prizes! One of them is this samp set from Slöjd-Detaljer (okay, it’s in Swedish, so only for Swedish speaking participants then):

Our sketch:

I also submit my cards 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 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:

 

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:

A Little Girl

I made this card for my boss, who just became a dad for the second time. The sentiment on the card says “A little girl”. This is my contribution for sketch #397 at Kortskissen. As always we’d love to see your take on our sketch. 🙂

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Hearts on Valentine’s Day

Even though it’s too late to send Valentine cards now, as it is Valentine’s Day today, I still made a card with hearts and a love greeting. I have used scraps of various designer papers, and a clear stamp from Paper Smooches.

I submit my card to the following bunch of 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! 😀

I also submit this card to:

Hello!

Today’s second and last card is a clean and simple card inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #271:

I also submit this 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:
