Find Beauty In Every Day

After hardly creating anything for an entire week, I’m now on a cardmaking spree. Here’s card #2 for today, in pastel colors with a background created with the new Distress Ink Oxide pads. I like them, but need to get some in bolder colors. I’m usually not the pastel kind of person. The flowers is a clear stamp from an old set by Heidi Swapp (or was it Heidi Grace?), and the sentiment is from a clear stamp set by Technique Tuesday.

It’s the first time I participate in a Paper Craft Crew Challenge – challenge #244 being a sketch. I also submit my card to Fab ‘n’ Funky challenge #351 – Backgrounds, and Penny’s Paper-Crafty challenge #329 – Anything goes.

Flowers and a bird

It’s already a new week, and we have a new sketch at Kortskissen. As always, we’d like to see your take on the sketch.

I interpreted the sketch quite freely.The things in the corners became flower patterned paper, and the diagonal text is a tag on my card.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

It’s Christmas again!

As you might know, I had planned on making Christmas all year round so I don’t need to stress with them by the end of the year. I’m not doing too good with that – it’s already a couple of months since my last Christmas card.

Today’s card is navy and white, with a white silhouette tree, and a background of dotted cardstock. I’ve used Mojo Monday’s sketch #496 for the layout of the card.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

One more mom?

LOL, no. I only have one mom (whom by the way is the world’s very best mom). I’ve made a few extra Mother’s Day cards though, in case someone else wants a card for their mom. 🙂 I kept this card very simple, as I think the colorful designer paper by K-Designs doesn’t ask for a lot of other details on the card. The sentiment stamp (Swedish for “The World’s Best Mom”) is from Inkido. As only embellishment I added three heart stickers, following the same color scheme as the paper.

This card is made for AAA Cards Game #89 – Bright and beatiful:

The layout of the card is inspired by Freshly Made Sketches sketch #287:

Butterflies for mom

Kortskissen sketch #408 is now online. As always, we’d love to see your take on it. Here’s mine. I’ve used a butterfly paper from DCWV Mariposa collection, and a stamp (which is Swedish for “The Worlds Best Mom” from Inkido. I started with nine squares, but wasn’t really happy with how it turned out. So I added gold glitter stripes (stickers from Panduro) inbetween the squares.

Mom

I’m in the last minute. Always. So here’s my card for Freshly Made Sketches #286, just an hour before deadline. I’ve used the color scheme from CAS Colours & Sketches challenge #221. I kind of forgot to keep it clean, but since I haven’t used any decorations, I hope it’s CAS enough in spite of my mix of designer papers.

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.

This year’s first Mother’s Day card

I had such difficulties taking photos of this card. No matter how I tried to edit the images, you can’t really see the shimmer of the pale pink cardbase. Also the turquoise frames around the designer papers ar shiny and there are glitter elements on the flowers.

I used Catch The Bug Stella Says Sketch Challenge #507 for the layout of the card.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Count Your Blessings

The “Count Your Blessings” square is part of an (five years) old paper from BoBunny. I let its colors decide the colors for the entire card – yellow, light blue and brown. The layout of the card is inpsired by Mojo Monday sketch #492:
