Things With Wings

Our new challenge at Through The Purple Haze is “Things With Wings“. As I love using butterflies on my creations, that’s of course what I chose for this challenge.

I’ve made a one layer card. First I stamped the large butterfly. I also stamped it on a post-it note, cut it out and placed it on the butterfly I had stamped on the card. Then I stamped the butterfly panel three times as background. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this technique, it’s called masking.

I’ve colored the stamped images with three shades of yellow/orange, and then filled in all the black on the large butterfly with black Sakura Glaze gel roller pen to make it pop out a bit.

I used CAS(E) this Sketch #229 for the layout of my card:

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Adore

It’s time for a new challenge at Through The Purple Haze! 😀 Our challenge #128 is Spots and/or Stripes. I went for both on my yellow card, all made with various papers from an old My Mind’s Eye collection. Also the word “Adore” is from one of the papers. The only other decoration I’ve added is a rhinestone swirl from Prima Marketing.

Pink it is

Challenge #127 at Through The Purple Haze was supposed to be monochromatic. But since all of us happened to make pink cards, the color pink is the challenge instead. Come joing us – we’d love to see your pink creations!

I’ve used several stamps for this card. Sentiment is from VerveStamps, corner coggs from Inkadinkado, small butterfly from a non-brand set from Wish, and larger butterfly is my own design for Reprint.

Oh deer

I’m a bit late with this blog post, but here we go now. Our current theme at Through The Purple Haze is Animal. I finally dared put my scissors in this lovely paper with a cute litlle deer. All pieces on the card – deer, flowers, clouds, are cut out from the same paper. “Enjoy” is from a non-brand clear stamp set from Wish.

 

Butterfly tag

I’m awfully late with posting my creation for Through The Purple Haze challenge #125 – Anything goes. I’ve had my mom here visiting me for a week. During this week we were also away from home for a few days, visiting Malmö and Copenhagen. I didn’t want to spend much time by my computer while she was here, so all blogging and other online stuff or editing photos was put on hold.

Anyway, here I am now. My creation for the TTPH challenge is a tag. I joined a Facebook group for trading artist trading cards and tags. I have never really worked much with the tag format (#8, 3 1/8″ x6 1/4″  or European measure 8×16 cm). I liked it, and will make loads more tags for trading in that group and probably also to sell in my Etsy shop.

Black and copper

Our current challenge at Through The Purple Haze is “glitter”. I think my card became more shiny/blingy rather that glittery though. I’ve used two patterned papers I’ve had for years – one black with metallic copper flowers, and one monochromatic copper. I’ve matted the layers on metallic copper cardstock, and added stripes of bling above and below the patterned copper paper. The sentiment is from Verve Stamps. I’ve stamped it in black, and then filled in the text with Sakura Stardust gel pen for a glittery effect.

New design team member

I’m proud to announce that I’m a new design team member at Through The Purple Haze! 😀 Our challenge #123 has the theme Thank You / Gratitude. We’d love to see your cards, so come join us! Here’s mine:

Flowers and swirls

I found our sketch #403 at Kortskissen quite challenging, and ended up interpreting it quite freely. Letting the flowery S shape be swirls and flowers. The paper I’ve used is a ten years old (!!!) paper from Fancy Pants. Sentiment is Swedish for “Spring is in the air” and is a stamp by Carolina Emdin.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

 

Happy Hoppy Easter

So. I was making a card for challenge #49 at Inspired By All The Little Things. Where the inspirational image is a picture of a bunny in grey and black, with an allover rustic look. And I end up making a bright glitter card, lol. Well, I decided to go for the bunny theme, and this paper was the only thing with bunnies that I had in my stash. And no, unfortunately I dont know what brand the paper is. Egg is hand cut from another paper in the same series.

I used Freshly Made Sketches sketch #281 for the layout of my card:

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

One more card for Kortskissen

Our sketch at Kortskissen this week inspired me to make one more card. I’ve used ancient (well, almost) papers from DCWV, and stamps from my fave clear stamp set from Verve Stamps.
