Valentine’s Day

Yes, it’s Valentine’s Day today. And here’s a Valentine’s Day (“Alla Hjärtans Dag” is Swedish for “Valentine’s Day”) card I made for Kortskissen sketch #448. List of other challenges I participate in with this card is below the images.

I submit my card to the following challenges:

More Love

Yes, it’s that time of the year. Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. Many of the card challenge blogs I follow, have love and/or Valentine as themes for their current challenges. At Cardz 4 Guyz challenge #188, our theme is “Something beginning with L”. I chose Love. So did some of the others in the design team, while other chose other L words. This is my last card for Cardz 4 Guyz. It’s been fun to be a part of their talented design team, but I want to free more time for other crafts so therefore leaving the team.

This card is an example that things aren’t always what they appear to be, lol. I wanted a black and white striped paper for background. I didn’t have any, so I added stripes of black washi to a white paper. The LOVE chipboard letters had other colors, so I colored them with black marker. The heart was gray chipboard, so colored it with golden marker. The I and U were green (the only letter stickers I had in the perfect size). I tried to color them with white marker, but unfortunately the green still shine through i tiny little bit. The heart inbetween I and U was red with white dots, I colored it with white marker.

As layout and inspiration for this card, I used MFT Sketch #371, and the photo at Time Out Challenge #102. List of other challenges I participate in are beneath the images.

Here’s my first card for Kortskissen sketch #448. I actually made two cards for this week’s sketch, I’ll post the other one in a couple of days. As so often, I also participate in several other challenges as well, list is below the images.

I submit my card to the following challenges:

January Blues

January Blues, i.e. making blue cards, is the theme for Cardz 4 Guyz’ first challenge of the year, and here’s my card for it. “You are my” and the stars are stamped, while “Star” is Thickers.

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:

My Sweet

I don’t make romantic style cards very often, but here’s one. It’s my take on sketch #443 at Kortskissen.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

A Green Card

When I saw our sketch #433 at Kortskissen, I imagined a card with rays going out from the center. Luckily, I found one such paper in my stash. The paper is from K-Designs, and the Grattis (Swedish for “congrats”) is from a clear stamp set by Slöjd-Detaljer.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

A Vintage Card

Our theme for Through The Purple Haze challenge #131 is Vintage. I used my beloved papers from Stamperia on my card. One of the papers had a sentiment print, so no stamping needed. Decorations are lace and Prima Marketing bling swirls.

I also submit my card to Crafting By Designs August Anything Goes Challenge.

Christmas in July part 2

Our challenge #174 at Cardz 4 Guyz is Christmas in July. It’s never too early to get started with those Christmas cards! C’mon and show us your Christmas creations. 😀

All papers on my card are from a Christmas paper pad by Stamperia, and the sentiment is a stamp from Kortmakaren.

Christmas in July part 1

Another week when I’m late with my blog posts. I thought I’d manage to do everything in time now when being off work, but obviously not. Here’s my card for sketch #418 at Kortskissen. Remember we never have any deadlines, so you can let our sketches inspire you whenever you want and we’d love to see your cards.

The trees scene on my card is recycled from an old store bought Christmas card, and Happy Holidays is a peel off sticker.
