Valentine’s Day

Yes, it’s Valentine’s Day today. And here’s a Valentine’s Day (“Alla Hjärtans Dag” is Swedish for “Valentine’s Day”) card I made for Kortskissen sketch #448. List of other challenges I participate in with this card is below the images.

I submit my card to the following challenges:

More Love

Yes, it’s that time of the year. Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. Many of the card challenge blogs I follow, have love and/or Valentine as themes for their current challenges. At Cardz 4 Guyz challenge #188, our theme is “Something beginning with L”. I chose Love. So did some of the others in the design team, while other chose other L words. This is my last card for Cardz 4 Guyz. It’s been fun to be a part of their talented design team, but I want to free more time for other crafts so therefore leaving the team.

This card is an example that things aren’t always what they appear to be, lol. I wanted a black and white striped paper for background. I didn’t have any, so I added stripes of black washi to a white paper. The LOVE chipboard letters had other colors, so I colored them with black marker. The heart was gray chipboard, so colored it with golden marker. The I and U were green (the only letter stickers I had in the perfect size). I tried to color them with white marker, but unfortunately the green still shine through i tiny little bit. The heart inbetween I and U was red with white dots, I colored it with white marker.

As layout and inspiration for this card, I used MFT Sketch #371, and the photo at Time Out Challenge #102. List of other challenges I participate in are beneath the images.

Where There Is Love

Here’s my first card for Kortskissen sketch #448. I actually made two cards for this week’s sketch, I’ll post the other one in a couple of days. As so often, I also participate in several other challenges as well, list is below the images.

I submit my card to the following challenges:

Reindeers

Challenge #183 at Cardz 4 Guyz is Reindeer. I used an image from a paper I’ve had for ages, don’t know the brand, and a Merry Christmas stamp from Vilda Stamps.

For the layout of the card, I have used MFT Sketch #359.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

A little birdie told me…

New week means new sketch at Kortskissen. Bird image, poinsettias and background paper are from Stamperia, and the Merry Christmas stamp is from Vilda Stamps.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Christmas Greeting

Our current challenge #138 at Through The Purple Haze is Lace/Ribbon. I used both on my card. We’d love to see how you use lace and/or ribbons on your creations. 😀

For the layout of the card, I have used a sketch from Paper Craft Crew:

A Purple CAS Card

When I saw Freshly Made Sketches sketch #283, I knew I wanted to make a really clean & simple card. At the bottom of the card, I have adhered a piece of striped overlay (acetate), and then added a thin border sticker along the edge of the overlay. The sentiment, a clear stamp from Technique Tuesday, is embossed with white embossing powder. I added a few pearls in the corner of the card. That’s it.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

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.

Easter tag

For this tag, I used an old chicken and egg paper from Forma Hantverk. Both the Glad Påsk (Swedish for Happy Easter) sentiment and the chickens are clear stamps from Slöjd-Detaljer. Unfortunately these stamps are no longer available, but we have several other clear stamp sets. The chickens are designed by the extremely talented Johanna – it doesn’t matter what kind of craft she tries, everything she makes turn out great. 😀

I submit my tag to the following challenges:

Chicken and eggs

I really liked the clean and simple look of the sketch at Fusion’s Paris Rain challenge, and I decided to go with the sketch only and not the image. I made an Easter card with an old paper (yes, I have lots of old supplies after working in a scrapbook store for five years, before my five years at a craft store…) from Forma Hantverk. Glad Påsk is Swedish for Happy Easter, and is from a clear stamps set by Slöjd-Detaljer (it’s retired, but there are plenty of other clear stamps sets available).
