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.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

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 also submit my card to the following challenges:

Heart and Flowers

Today’s first card (I’m not sure if there will actually be any more today) has a cut out heart covered in stripes of washi tapes, and flowers cut out from a coloring paper (I didn’t have any suitable flower stamps). Grattis is a clear stamp from Slöjd-Detaljer.

I made this card for Time Out challenge #83 where we should CASE a card by Hannelie. I also participate in several other challenges with this card, see full list below the images.

I submit my card to the following challenges:

Flowers and a bird

It’s already a new week, and we have a new sketch at Kortskissen. As always, we’d like to see your take on the sketch.

I interpreted the sketch quite freely.The things in the corners became flower patterned paper, and the diagonal text is a tag on my card.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

This year’s first Mother’s Day card

I had such difficulties taking photos of this card. No matter how I tried to edit the images, you can’t really see the shimmer of the pale pink cardbase. Also the turquoise frames around the designer papers ar shiny and there are glitter elements on the flowers.

I used Catch The Bug Stella Says Sketch Challenge #507 for the layout of the card.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Enjoy the Little Things

I belive it’s quite a while since I made a card for Mojo Monday, but now I made one for their sketch #491.

Unfortunately I can’t tell much about the products I’ve used. Papers are from a “non brand” pad, and stamp is from a “non brand” clear stamps set I purchased on Wish.

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:

Kortskissen #391

Sketch #391 at Kortskissen is up an running. Come join us in the fun and show us how you interpret the sketch. 😀 Here’s my take on it.

I also submit this card to:

Traditional Christmas

Second and last Christmas card for day is in traditional colors. When making a card for a vintage themed challenge, my first thought was brown and/or sepia. But thinking about it, red, gold and green works just as fine for a vintage look. So, here we go with this time’s challenges. Thank God it’s Christmas – I wouldn’t be able to combine this many challenges in one card if most blogs didn’t have Christmas challenges. 😉
