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.

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:


February being the month of love (Valentine’s Day), we have sketches with hearts all month at Kortskissen. Here’s the first one, sketch #447, and my card for it.

It was a very quick and easy card to make. The only thing I added was washi tape – one wide with the LOVE and one narrow black. The rest is the print on the paper.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Kortskissen #446

I’m mainly focusing on Valentine cards right now, as it’s that time of the year. For this card, I digged out some ancient papers, and a stamp from Forma Hantverk.

It’s my card for Kortskissen’s sketch #446. We’d love to see what you can do with this sketch, so please make and share. 😀

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

A Heartful Valentine’s Card

I love this week’s sketch at Kortskissen, and made a clean and simple card. The only elements used is a wide heart patterned washi tape and some small stamped hearts that I added diamond glaze on.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

My Sweet

I don’t make romantic style cards very often, but here’s one. It’s my take on sketch #443 at Kortskissen.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:


One more delayed post, and now I’m all caught up. This is my card for Kortskissen sketch #412 that went online this past Monday. There is still plenty of time if you wanna play – none of our sketches have deadlines. I had an heart shaped cardbase which I thought would be good for this sketch. I covered it with an ancient paper from My Mind’s Eye. The LOVE letters are cut out from another ancient paper, I don’t remember which brand. Decorations are paper lace and an organza ribbon.

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:

With Love

I’m no big fan of soft pastel colors. Still I managed to make such a card. 🙂 I was inspired by Tuesday Throwdown’s challenge #329, Heart Strings (I used ribbon and wooden hearts), and The Card Concept #66, Love and Romance (clean and layered concept). And, Sketch Saturday’s sketch #450:
