Snowmen and snowwomen

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:

Odd colors for Christmas

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.

It’s almost Halloween

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:

Fall/Autumn Birthday

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.
