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 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:

May the Valentine greetings begin!

My second card for the year, and the first Valentine’s card. I guess I’ll be making a few of them. For this card I’ve used a heart from a clear stamp set by Verve Stamps. Happy Valentine’s Day are two seperate stamps, from a clear stamp set by Simon Says Stamp.

As always, I participate with my card in several challenges. I love to make it extra challenging by combining various challenges in one card.
First, I used CAS(E) this Sketch #202:

 

And here we go with the rest:

Traditional Christmas

Second and last Christmas card for day is in traditional colors. When making a card for a vintage themed challenge, my first thought was brown and/or sepia. But thinking about it, red, gold and green works just as fine for a vintage look. So, here we go with this time’s challenges. Thank God it’s Christmas – I wouldn’t be able to combine this many challenges in one card if most blogs didn’t have Christmas challenges. 😉

Colours of autumn

My third and last card for today is made with various designer papers, a couple of pieces of washi tape and stamps from my fave clear stamps set from Verve Stamps.

I used the sketch from City Crafter challenge #334 as inspiration for my card. I was also inspired by the colors in the photo at Inspired by All the Little Things #39. I also submit this card to Stampin’ Royalty challenge #350 – Celebrations, The Crafty Addicts challenge #36 – Autumn Colours, and Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge #175 – Shades of Autumn.

Fall/Autumn Birthday

New week, new sketch at Kortskissen. Here’s my card for it. All those squares in the sketch were perfect for me, as I’m an “think inside the box” cardmaker.

I used four different designer papers, Happy Birthday stamp from K-Designs, and a feather stamp that I designed for Reprint Artstamps ages ago. Through the years, I have designed stamps for three different companies. And of those stamps I almost only use the text stamps. I don’t really know why, but I don’t like using images that I have drawn. Maybe I should challenge myself to start using them, as there are plenty of them.

This might be my personal record in how many challenges I participate with this card, LOL. But it’s the time of the year when several blogs have fall/autumn themed challenges.
