A Mother’s Day card

I’m sorry, I’m too tired tonight to write any details about this card, I’ll simply just show the pictures… I used Mojo Monday’s sketch #495:

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

 

Kortskissen 404

We have a new sketch at Kortskissen, and would love to see your take on it. For my card I used a few different papers from that “paper pad without name”, lol. The stamp is from VivaLasVegaStamps.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

From Easter to Christmas

Making a card for IN{K}SPIRE_me’s challenge #293 – mint, brown and white – I immediately knew I wanted to use papers from one of Stamperia’s Christmas paper sets. I know I’ve mentioned it before, but I have to say once again that Stamperia is one of my fave paper designers. The circle with snowflakes is a stamp from Creative Epressions, which I embossed with chocolate brown embossinpowder, and then cut out the image around the edges of the stamped circle.

I used the sketch from The Crafter’s Cafe challenge #169 for the layout of my card.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

70

My cardmaking intention for today was to make Valentine cards. For some reason I ended up making a 70’s birthday card instead. The digits are Thickers I’ve had for ages. “Gratulerar” stamp if from Skapa hobby (no longer available), and the butterfly stamp is from Reprint. Both of them designed by me.

I’ve used sketch #314 at MFT Card Challenges for the layout:

I don’t participate in color challenges very often, but this time I did. IN{K}SPIRE_me Challenge #282:

I also submit the card to Butterfly Challenge #69 – Z is for Zero, and Everybody-Art-Challenge #394 – Anything goes.

Happy New Year!

I’m back! I didn’t have any time or energy to make cards during most of December. Handcrafted Christmas gifts I needed to finish, hysterically much to do at work. When I sat down today to make this card, I felt so happy! There are not words to explain how much I love cardmaking and how I had missed it.

So, the first card of the year is a Happy New Year card, in all white and silver. The text stamp is from a Christmas clear stamp set from YouDo. Stars are from a clear set I bought second hand via a Facebook group, and I have no clue what brand it is. I used silver embossing powder for text and stars, and adhered some of the stars with 3D mount to give some dimension.

The card is for this week’s sketch at Kortskissen, but I also submit it 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.

It’s Christmas time!

Every year I have the intention to make Christmas cards during the entire year, to have a stash large enough to both send and sell when it’s time for those cards. Yeah, right. This year I have obviously made ONE Christmas card, and that was during the first week in January. So, I’d better get started now.

On this card, I’ve used part of a sheet music background stamp from Artemio in the upper right corner, snowflake stamps from Kortmakaren, and the greeting stamp is from Hero Arts. All stamped images are embossed – the sheet music with black embossing powder and the rest with gold. The background is dotted cardstock. I have them in several colors but never use them. I need to change that!
