Happy Easter

Our sketch:

I also submit my cards to the following challenges:

It’s Easter time!

With Easter coming up next month, I’d better get started with the Easter cards. Here’s the first one, which I submit to the following challenges:

A flower for you

My card for this week’s sketch at Kortskissen is a small CAS (clean & simple) card that’s perfect for enclosing when giving flowers to someone. The sentiment is Swedish for “A flower for you”. That stamp is from a clear stamp set I designed for Slöjd-Detaljer, unfortunately not available any more though. The flower stamp if from a Heidi Grace set I’ve had for years.

Besides Kortskissen, 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:

 

Butterfly congrats

Another quick card. I’ve only used two designer papers from DCWV’s Mariposa collection. The left part with the green shape, butterfly, flowers and the background is one single piece, then a thin line of gold glitter washi tape and another paper to the right. Grattis (Swedish for “congrats”) which is from a clear stamp set by Slöjd-Detaljer, is gold embossed.

I submit my card to the following challenges:

A Little Girl

I made this card for my boss, who just became a dad for the second time. The sentiment on the card says “A little girl”. This is my contribution for sketch #397 at Kortskissen. As always we’d love to see your take on our sketch. 🙂

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

A lilac Christmas

Two of the challenges I made this card for, have the themes Girly and Cute. Those who know me, know that I don’t do girly. Or cute. Ever. So yes, it was quite a challenge for me, and this is the girliest and cutest I managed to make. Both the girl image and the God Jul (Merry Christmas) stamp are from Slöjd-Detaljer.

I submit my card to the following challenges:

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:

And here’s my take:

I also sumbmit my card to the following challenges:

Together is a beautiful place to be

Weekend off work means cardmaking time! 😀 Here’s the first of two cards I made today The frame is an overlay I’ve had for years, that finally came to use. Sentiment is a non-brand clear stamp from Wish. I used Stella Says Sketch #501 for this card.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

A winter birthday

Snowflake paper and decorations don’t necessarily need to be used for Christmas cards or winter greetings. It’s a perfect theme for a card to someone who has his/her birthday during the winter months. I’ve mixed three different designer papers on this card, two of them with snowflake print. Happy Birthday is a clear stamp from Verve Stamps, and the snowflake is a Martha Stewart punch.

It’s my card for sketch #392 at Kortskissen:
