Peace Love Joy

I take a huge leap here, from the spring card earlier today, to a Christmas card. The lovely image with the cute birds is from Slöjd-Detaljer. Peace Love Joy is from a clear stamps set that I got with a magazine a few years ago. The background is a snowflake printed overlay from Making Memories that I’ve adhered to green cardstock. I used the shetch at MFT Sketch Challenge #327 for the layout of my card:

I also submit my card to the following 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:

 

Reindeer card

Challenge #231 at Merry Monday, was to use a reindeer on your card. I found this reindeer image in a paper pad from one of my fave brands, Stamperia. I used Mojo Monday sketch #480 for the layout.

Christmas Angel

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

Blue Christmas

Yes, here I am with today’s second card. Making this card made me nostalgic. The tree paper and the stamp are both from Inkido, a company with loads of wonderful products, that no longer exists…

Again, I have made this card for several challenges. With several, I really mean a lot! 😉

Christmas bird

I plan for a total cardmaking weekend, and here’s the first card. A Christmas card with papers (bird and background papers) from Stamperia. It’s an Italian craft supplier, making THE most beasutiful papers, and other things as well. The God Jul stamp I used are from an old clear stamp set I designed for Skapa Hobby, no longer available.

As always, I’ve used a few challenges as inspiration:

Plaid it is

Well, both plaid, stripes and damask. The plaid and stripes papers are from a past collection from Maja Design. Snowmen image from Slöjd-Detaljer, and stamp from Kaisercraft.

I submit this card to the following challenges:

Vintage Christmas

I thought I’d make today a cardmaking day. We’ll see how far I get with that. I’ve at least made one card this far. I used Merry Monday’s challenge #217 – Retro/Vintage and Mojo Monday’s sketch #469 as inspiration.

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!

I’m participating in a total of five challenges with this card:
The current Simon Says Wednesday Challenge is an easy one – Anything goes!
At Jingle Belles, the challenge is to use music elements.
Merry Monday #212 challenge us to use black, white and gold only.
Challenge #39 at Christmas Card Challenges is to be inspired by music notes:

For the layout of my card, I used the sketch from Inkspire Me #265:

Winter is here

Now when snow and proper winter has finally come here in Sweden, what is more suitable than to make and send a card saying “White Winter Greetings”? I made it for three different challenges. And I hope it qualifies for the Christmas card challenges…

  • Merry Monday #186: White on White. We’re allowed to use neutrals so I added some silver.
  • Jingle Belles: Something Old and Something New. Brand new is the glittery paper. Old is the vellum with white flourishes (I’ve had it for years but never used it) and the snowflake outline stickers.
  • Sketch Saturday #394
