Last Easter Card For This Year

Here’s my card for Kortskissen’s sketch #454, another Easter card. With Easter coming up this weekend, this is my last Easter card for this time. More to come next year. 🙂

Below the images are other challenges I pariticipate in with this card.

I submit my card to the following challenges:

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.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Where There Is Love

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:

Snowflakes

For sketch #439 at Kortskissen, I made a clean and simple card with silver snowflake stickers. The Merry Christmas stamp is from Slöjd-Detaljer.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Vintage Christmas

Today’s card is for Kortskissen sketch #432. I used the sketch very vaguely, adding a square with an image instead of the heart that is on the sketch. Designer paper, image and the Christmas greeting are all from a Christmas paper pad by my fave brand Stamperia.

I also submit my card to Creates and Makes Challenge #15 – Anything Goes

Purple Christmas

Our challenge #136 at Through The Purple Haze is untraditional Christmas colors. I went for purple, with a background paper from Paper Adventures from 2003 (!!!) and a vintage Christmas image from Slöjd-Detaljer. Also the God Jul stamp is from Slöjd-Detaljer.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Christmas Greetings

It’s quite some time since I made a card for other challenges than the ones I’m in the design team for. When I saw CAS-ual Fridays challenge #182, CASE a Girl Friday I felt I needed to participate though. The challenge is to CASE (Copy And Steal Everything) a card by one of their designer from any past challenge. I chose a Christmas card by Alanna.

My card:

Alanna‘s 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.
