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:

Heart and Flowers

Today’s first card (I’m not sure if there will actually be any more today) has a cut out heart covered in stripes of washi tapes, and flowers cut out from a coloring paper (I didn’t have any suitable flower stamps). Grattis is a clear stamp from Slöjd-Detaljer.

I made this card for Time Out challenge #83 where we should CASE a card by Hannelie. I also participate in several other challenges with this card, see full list below the images.

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:

With Love

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:

Birthday Flowers

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:

A winter birthday

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:

Thank you in fall colors

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:

It’s almost Halloween

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:

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.
