I’ve decided that today will be dedicated to cardmaking. Christmas cardmaking that is. Here’s the first one. The snowmen family is a stamp I designed for Skapa Hobby (no longer available) years ago. Somehow I don’t like to use stamp images I have made but this it pretty okay. I love smiley faces. 😀
I made the card for a bunch of challenges:
It was really fun to make this card, with its totally untraditional Christmas colors. I actually made it for a person whose favorite colors are purple, lime green, blue and turquoise. As always, I’m participating in a few challenges. Well, this time more than just a few.
With only a couple of weeks until Halloween, and several card challenge blogs having Halloween related challenges, there is plenty of inspiration for making Halloween cards.
This card, with a vintage Halloween image from Slöjd-Detaljer, is my interpretion of Freshly Made Sketches sketch #258:
I was also inspired by this image from Tuesday Throwdown #315:
I also submit this card to the following challenges:
New week, new sketch at Kortskissen. Here’s my card for it. All those squares in the sketch were perfect for me, as I’m an “think inside the box” cardmaker.
I used four different designer papers, Happy Birthday stamp from K-Designs, and a feather stamp that I designed for Reprint Artstamps ages ago. Through the years, I have designed stamps for three different companies. And of those stamps I almost only use the text stamps. I don’t really know why, but I don’t like using images that I have drawn. Maybe I should challenge myself to start using them, as there are plenty of them.
This might be my personal record in how many challenges I participate with this card, LOL. But it’s the time of the year when several blogs have fall/autumn themed challenges.
