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.

Kortskissen sketch 417

Getting home from my vacation trips, I’m now back to blogging again. First post for today, is my card for Kortskissen sketch #417. The sentiment I’ve used, is from a clear stamp set by Slöjd-Detaljer.

As always there’s no deadline on our sketches, so you have as much time as you want to make your take on the sketch.

I feel proud and honored to be a new design team member at the Cardz 4 Guyz challenge blog. My first card as a part of the team, is “Stars”, which is the challenge #172 theme. Come join us and show is your star cards! 😀

The background on my card is an old star background stamp from Slöjd-Detaljer. Guitar stamp is from Inkadinkado, and the larger stars is a stamp I don’t know the brand of. Everything stamped is embossed with black embossing powder. You Rock are various letter stickers.

You Rock!

My fourth and last blog post for today, with a card I made a couple of days ago. It’s a cool card that I’ll send to a special friend of mine. I have used papers from K-Designs, and various stickers (corners, borders, letters). It’s my card for this week’s Kortskissen, sketch #410. As always, we’d love to see your take on the sketch. I’m submitting this cards to a few other challenges as well, se links at the bottom of this post.

I submit my card to the following challenges:

It’s Christmas again!

As you might know, I had planned on making Christmas all year round so I don’t need to stress with them by the end of the year. I’m not doing too good with that – it’s already a couple of months since my last Christmas card.

Today’s card is navy and white, with a white silhouette tree, and a background of dotted cardstock. I’ve used Mojo Monday’s sketch #496 for the layout of the card.

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:

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Butterflies for mom

Kortskissen sketch #408 is now online. As always, we’d love to see your take on it. Here’s mine. I’ve used a butterfly paper from DCWV Mariposa collection, and a stamp (which is Swedish for “The Worlds Best Mom” from Inkido. I started with nine squares, but wasn’t really happy with how it turned out. So I added gold glitter stripes (stickers from Panduro) inbetween the squares.

I also submit this card to the following challenges:

Rainbow Colors

Challenge #171 at CAS-ual Fridays was the theme Rainbows. I might have gone slightly over the top with that on my card, LOL. Well, at least you can’t accuse me for using boring colors. 😉

I’ve used papers from K-Design, and a dotted washi tape. The flower is a black outline sticker, in which I drew inlines with a white Posca pen. Happy Mother’s Day is a stamp from Simon Say’s Stamp.

I used MFT sketch #328 for the layout of my card:
