Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge 173

I’m slightly late with this blog post. Being busy before going away on vacation, I forgot to make a scheduled post. But, here it is now, my card for the latest challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz. Our theme this time is Beside The Sea.

Background is an old paper (you should see my huge stash of papers I’ve collected through the years), I think it’s from Maja Design. The lighthouse is a stamp I designed for Reprint Hobby many years ago, and the “Trevlig Sommar” (Swedish for “Have a nice simmer”) is from a summer set I designed for Skapa Hobby (no longer available).

Have a nice summer

When I started making this card, I wasn’t sure of the purpose. But after picking out paper suitable for both the sketch and the color theme the card is made for, I realized that with clouds and a butterly, a summer greeting was perfect for the card. The sentiment means “Have a nice summer” in English. So, the challenges I made the card for, are CAS(E) This Sketch #127 and The Paper Players #249.

Have A Nice (Nautical) Summer

Yay, I’ve made a card! My second card this week, after not having crafted much at all for a while. This card is for two different challenges, Mojo Monday #401 and Colour Me…! #75. The color scheme made me think nautical, for which I found it suitable with a “Have a nice summer” greeting.

Less is More – Feeling Fruity

My first participation in any of Less is More‘s challenges, and the theme of the week is to make a card with fruits or in fruity colors. I realized I don’t have ANY fruit stamps or embellishments. I did remember I saw a strawberry postcard the other day when I organized some of my crafting space. So, I used a piece of that postcard for my card. 😀

The rubber stamp is from Skapa Hobby (designed by me), and in English it means “Have a nice summer”. I know the summer is almost over, but I thought it suited the strawberries… I added small rhinestones to the little flower on the stamp image.

Guest designer for Inkido

During spring 2009, I was lucky to be one of the guest designers for my fave papercrafting brand (rubberstamps, papers and more) Inkido. I was in heaven no. 7 being allowed to create for them and their inspirational blog. 😀 Here is what I made:
