Things With Wings

Our new challenge at Through The Purple Haze is “Things With Wings“. As I love using butterflies on my creations, that’s of course what I chose for this challenge.

I’ve made a one layer card. First I stamped the large butterfly. I also stamped it on a post-it note, cut it out and placed it on the butterfly I had stamped on the card. Then I stamped the butterfly panel three times as background. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this technique, it’s called masking.

I’ve colored the stamped images with three shades of yellow/orange, and then filled in all the black on the large butterfly with black Sakura Glaze gel roller pen to make it pop out a bit.

I used CAS(E) this Sketch #229 for the layout of my card:

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Butterflies for mom

Kortskissen sketch #408 is now online. As always, we’d love to see your take on it. Here’s mine. I’ve used a butterfly paper from DCWV Mariposa collection, and a stamp (which is Swedish for “The Worlds Best Mom” from Inkido. I started with nine squares, but wasn’t really happy with how it turned out. So I added gold glitter stripes (stickers from Panduro) inbetween the squares.

I also submit this card to the following challenges:

Another Easter card

One more Easter card for today. As always, I submit my card to a few challenges:

A shimmery Christmas

I’m supposed to be making Christmas cards all year round. Yeah, right. It’s about a month since the last one. But here’s one, finally. The entire image, with houses, Merry Christmas, and snowflakes on the left side, is from a designer paper. Unfortunately I don’t remember which brand.

I have matted the paper on brown cardstock, and then on glittery offwhite paper. I filled in Merry Christmas with Sakura Stardust gel pen. In the corners I’ve added snowflakes that I’ve punched out with Martha Stewart punches from offwhite and white glittery paper.

I submit this card to the following challenges:

 

Christmas Angel

Today’s card is a Christmas card, made for the following challenges:

Colours of autumn

My third and last card for today is made with various designer papers, a couple of pieces of washi tape and stamps from my fave clear stamps set from Verve Stamps.

I used the sketch from City Crafter challenge #334 as inspiration for my card. I was also inspired by the colors in the photo at Inspired by All the Little Things #39. I also submit this card to Stampin’ Royalty challenge #350 – Celebrations, The Crafty Addicts challenge #36 – Autumn Colours, and Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge #175 – Shades of Autumn.
