Card with coloring page

As soon as I saw the card at the latest Muse challenge, I knew I wanted to use a mandala from one of my coloring books. The mandalas were too large though, so I ended up using another colored page for my card. I’ve outlined everything with white Posca pen to lighten up the image a bit. “Till Mamma”, Swedish for “For Mum” is a small “till” stamp from a set by Slöjd-Detaljer, and alphabet stickers (I don’t know which brand) for “Mamma”.

Neon Flowers

For today’s card, I stamped flowers on neon colored cardstock, cut them out and adhered to the cardbase. Both flower stamps are ancient and for sure not available anywhere anymore. 😉 Happy Birthday is though, it’s part of my fave stamp set by Simon Says Stamp. I’ve added Glossy Accents in the middle of the large flowers, and sequins in the middle of the small flowers.

I made this card for Muse Challenge #211. I interpreted the colorful circles in the card, as flowers on my card. And kept the sentiment in the bottom right corner.

Birthday Flowers

Yay, day off work means cardmaking day. 😀 Here’s the first card. The “Happy Birthday” stamp is from K-Designs, and the flowers are cut out from an old designer paper from Pink Paislee.

This is my first submission to Muse Challenge for quite some time. For their challenge #200, this was the card to get inspired by:

Have A Wonderful Christmas

On a dark fall day like this, being too tired to do any chores, I have decided today will be a cardmaking day. Yes, all day long! 😀

Here’s the first card of the day. I’ve used white vellum with glittery wintery swirly print, banners cut out from Maja Design papers, a white glittery snowflake made with a Martha Stewart punch, and a “Have A Wonderful Christmas” sentiment stamp that is my design for Skapa Hobby. It’s always tricky to adhere vellum without the glue or tape shining through. I rather use a thin tape all along the edges, to make it looking a bit like a border, than to add small dots of glue/tape.

I’m very thankful for Less is More’s challenge #299, to use vellum, as I hardly ever do that. I was also inspired by Jenni Murray‘s card at Muse challenge #188. I wanted to make mine in the same colors as hers, but I didn’t find any suitable turquoise or light blue papers.

Flowery birthday wishes

This must be the quickest card I have made in a very long time. Usually I spend a lot o time thinking about how I should make the card, which supplies to use, etc. But as soon as I saw the images from Muse and The Card Concept, I knew what I wanted to do. The sentiment stamp I used is from a clear stamps set from Verve Stamps, and the flowers are from an old set from Making Memories.

Muse Challenge #187 is this card by Tracey McNeely:

And this is how I interpreted it:

From this ice cream at The Card Concept #59, I picked up the colors for my flowers, and I chose the concept Clean & Simple:

Already Monday again!? Last week I only managed to make one card. I wish there was enough time to make cards every day. 🙂

This is my very fist entry to a Muse challenge. You’ll find their card to be inspired by at the bottom of this post. I loved everything about the card, and made a pretty similar one. The background, which is in the same color scheme as the Muse card, is an old scrapbooking paper I’ve had since forever. Grattis stamp and flower stamp are both from Slöjd-Detaljer (the flowers is a discontinued stamp though). It’s hard to get it to show in photos, but I outlined the text and the flowers with Sakura Gelly Roll stardust pen to make it pop out a bit.

A also submit this card to Simon Says Wednesday Challenge “It’s hip to be square” and to Addicted to CAS challenge #95 “Silhouette”.
