This card is sligthly different from most cards I make. It’s got a bit more romantic style – pastel colors, doily border punched paper… It’s my card for sketch #405 at Kortskissen. As always, you are welcome to join us and show how you interpret our sketch.
My card for this week’s Kortskissen is a dark grungy Halloween card. Maybe I should stop making Halloween cards soon, as I don’t send any. My stash is getting pretty big.
I have used designer papers from K-Designs (I love their papers!). The owl image if from a sheet of vintage Halloween images from Slöjd-Detaljer, and the Happy Halloween stamp is from Deep Red.
I also submit this card to the following challenges:
Guess what?! I’ve made a card! Yes, you read that right. Last card I posted here was almost a month ago. I had so much fun making this card, inspired by three different challenges:
Butterfly Challenge #58 – D is for Dimension and/or Denim. I found a cotton fabric with denim print in my stash, which was absolutely perfect for this challenge. Then a bit of dimension by using 3D dots under the Grattis stamp, and glueing just the body of the butterfly, lifting the wings up from the card (by the way, I almost always do that when using butterflies).
Shopping Our Stash challenge #262 is to use stitching. I don’t own a sewing machine, and was too lazy to stitch by hand, so I made faux stitches with Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze pen.
And then I used the sketch at The Paper Players challenge #305.
I’m a bit late with my card for this week’s Kortskissen, as we published the sketch yesterday. But better late than never. 🙂 The card is also for AAA Cards #55: Glitter. I went a bit over the top here, because pretty much everything except the card base is glittery, lol. And last but not least, it’s my card for Shopping Our Stash #234: Something New. The Valentine stamp from Gummiapan is brand new, as well as the glittery washi tapes too.
My card for Freshly Made Sketches #215. It turned out quite boring but I guess I wasn’t really inspired to make a card even though I liked the sketch. The card is also for Shopping Our Stash #229: No stamping. I used Basic Grey alphabet stickers for the sentiment.
A smiley card for three challenges. At CASology week 165, the theme is circles. My tiny circles are happy! 😀 At Shopping our Stash #220, the challenge is to “show our smile”. Last but not least, I used CAS(E) this Sketch #142.
The smilies is a small rubber stamp from Pysseldags, which I colored with yellow pen.
A couple of posts ago, I wrote that it’s still summer. Well, now it isn’t. Some days into September and the rain pouring down all day, it’s for sure autumn/fall now. Which means it’s a good idea to send an autumn greeting to brighten up someones day. I made this card from Mojo Monday’s sketch #413. It’s also for Shopping Our Stash #217 – Put a bird on it (my birds might not be in the focal part of the card, but they are there! 😀 ), and Allsorts challenge #327 – Lots of layers.
I wonder if I have set my own record now, on how many challenges one card can be for?! This card is for the following challenges:
I have this thing for butterflies. I don’t like using flowers on my cards. Butterflies alwys work though. 🙂 This card if for two challenges. First for Kortskissen’s sketch #319 (where there are butterflies on the sketch, you can of course use whatever you want, it doesn’t have to be butterlies!). The card is also for Shopping Our Stash #215, where the challenge is to use layers. This means I couldn’t make a clean & simple card this time. 😉
I found another cardmaking challenge blog I didn’t know of, Shopping Our Stash. Their latest challenge is to use eye wear on your card. I went through my stash, and I seriously have no paper, stamp or decoration with spectacles. Wrong. I did find ONE paper with tiny spectacles, among lots of other tiny things. So that will have to do. The paper was kind of difficult to find a suitable sentiment for, but the “go” and “in the direction” on this stamp kind of goes with the travel themed stuff on the paper. Paper from Seven Paper, stamp from Verve Stamps.
