Our current challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz is “Something beginning with the letter D”. I couldn’t figure out having any suitable decorations or stamps for Dogs, Dinosaurs… whatever… Just now, I realize I could’ve made a Christmas card with a Deer. Oh well. I went for Date as my D word.
Quite some time ago, I posted a few cards I made with the gorgeous Steampunk papers from Stamperia. Here are a few more from that cardmaking session:
I’ve been making a whole bunch of cards with papers from the most wonderful paperpack Steampunk by Stamperia, along with a few other papers in the same color scheme. As I said, a whole bunch, so I’ll divide them into a few blog posts. Here’s part 1.
I submit the first of these cards to the following challenges:
For this card, the only thing besides the papers, is a birthday stamp from Verses:
The Congratulations stamp on this card, is from Viva Las Vegastamps. The corners and border around the card is the paper print, but I completed the look with a corner stamp from Vilda Stamps just outside the Congratulations. I added some black rhinestones as decoration:
The sentiment on this card is from the stamp set “Stuff To Say” by Tim Holtz. The only thing I’ve added besides papers and stamped sentiment, are small black dots (with Sakura Glaze pen) along the border:
Today’s card is a Happy Birthday card in a vintage kind of style. I submit it to the following challenges:
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. 😉
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:
I’m squeezing in a Thank You card inbetween the Halloween cards. For this card I’ve used Graphic 45 papers and a butterfly stamp which I designed for Reprint Artstamps years ago. I’m not sure where the Thank You stamp is from, but it might be Verve Stamps.
I thought I’d make today a cardmaking day. We’ll see how far I get with that. I’ve at least made one card this far. I used Merry Monday’s challenge #217 – Retro/Vintage and Mojo Monday’s sketch #469 as inspiration.
Today’s card is made with inspiration from Catch The Bug’s Stella Says Sketch Challenge #415:
And the color challenge at Sunday Stamps #137, to use at least three of the colors in the picture. My card is closer to these colors, it looks more yellow in the photos.
The stamps I have used are from a clear stamp set from Slöjd-Detaljer (the sentiment that means “1 year older and wiser”), and from Inkadinkado’s clear stamp set “Steamp Punk”.
I also submit my card to the following challenges:
A birthday card in earth tones, with brand new (got it in the mail today) stamp from Verve Stamps. I’ve got the feeling this clear stamps set is gonna be a favorite of mine!
I submit the card to the following challenges:
It’s also my card for this week’s sketch at Kortskissen:
