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. ūüôā 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:

Mom

I’m in the last minute. Always. So here’s my card for Freshly Made Sketches #286, just an hour before deadline. I’ve used the color scheme from CAS Colours & Sketches challenge #221. I kind of forgot to keep it clean, but since I haven’t used any decorations, I hope it’s CAS enough in spite of my mix of designer papers.

A Purple CAS Card

When I saw Freshly Made Sketches sketch #283, I knew I wanted to make a really clean & simple card. At the bottom of the card, I have adhered a piece of striped overlay (acetate), and then added a thin border sticker along the edge of the overlay. The sentiment, a clear stamp from Technique Tuesday, is embossed¬†with white embossing powder. I added a few pearls in the corner of the card. That’s it.

Happy Hoppy Easter

So. I was making a card for challenge #49 at Inspired By All The Little Things. Where the inspirational image is a picture of a bunny in grey and black, with an allover rustic look. And I end up making a bright glitter card, lol. Well, I decided to go for the bunny theme, and this paper was the only thing with bunnies that I had in my stash. And no, unfortunately I dont know what brand the paper is. Egg is hand cut from another paper in the same series.

I used Freshly Made Sketches sketch #281 for the layout of my card:

I found sketch #270 at Freshly Made Sketches very inspiring, and here’s my take on it:

Today’s first Christmas card

Today’s first (it’s already evening, but there will most likely be one more card tonight) Christmas card is clean and simple. The beautiful image is from my fave brand Stamperia, and the God Jul (Swedish for Merry Christmas) is from one of Sl√∂jd-Detaljer‘s great clear stamp sets. As always I’ve been inspired by a bunch of challenges:

Cute little birds

Here’s another Christmas card for today. Both the cute birds image and the sentiment stamp (which says “Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and New Year’s Holiday” in Swedish) are from Sl√∂jd-Detaljer.

Not your regular gingerbread men

This card did not turn out the way I wanted it to, but oh well. The circle with the gingerbread man, and the pieces of paper behind them, are from papers I purchased at Panduro one or two years ago. Stamp is from a clear stamp set from Kaisercraft. I embossed it, and the small black dots all around the sentiment shows how very seldom I emboss these days – I should’ve brushed them away before heating…

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:
