I’m no big fan of soft pastel colors. Still I managed to make such a card. 🙂 I was inspired by Tuesday Throwdown’s challenge #329, Heart Strings (I used ribbon and wooden hearts), and The Card Concept #66, Love and Romance (clean and layered concept). And, Sketch Saturday’s sketch #450:
Yay, day off work means cardmaking day. 😀 Here’s the first card. The “Happy Birthday” stamp is from K-Designs, and the flowers are cut out from an old designer paper from Pink Paislee.
This is my first submission to Muse Challenge for quite some time. For their challenge #200, this was the card to get inspired by:
And here’s my take:
I also sumbmit my card to the following challenges:
Snowflake paper and decorations don’t necessarily need to be used for Christmas cards or winter greetings. It’s a perfect theme for a card to someone who has his/her birthday during the winter months. I’ve mixed three different designer papers on this card, two of them with snowflake print. Happy Birthday is a clear stamp from Verve Stamps, and the snowflake is a Martha Stewart punch.
It’s my card for sketch #392 at Kortskissen:
I also submit my card to the following challenges:
My card for sketch #383 at Kortskissen is a Thank you (“Tack” is Swedish for “Thanks”) card in fall colors. I’ve used designer papers from Panduro, Tack stamp that is my design for Skapa Hobby (no longer avaiable) and various bling.
Besides the sketch, I submit my card to the following challenges:
Another card where I’ve used paper and image from the wonderful Stamperia. God Jul stamp is from YouDo. I submit this card to the following challenges:
With only a couple of weeks until Halloween, and several card challenge blogs having Halloween related challenges, there is plenty of inspiration for making Halloween cards.
This card, with a vintage Halloween image from Slöjd-Detaljer, is my interpretion of Freshly Made Sketches sketch #258:
I was also inspired by this image from Tuesday Throwdown #315:
I also submit this card to the following challenges:
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.
The current challenge at Simon Says, is to focus on the border. I decided to dig out my paper lace which has mainly just been gathering dust for a few years now… I managed to squeeze in three different laces and one washi tape border. The result is a card that is so NOT my usual style!
The sentiment is a clear stamp from Slöjd-Detaljer (did I mention that I love our stamps? 😀 ), and says “If there’s anything you dream of, may everything be granted, because you deserve everything”.
Second card for today is made for five different challenges, four of them from blogs I discovered just today:
