Thank You

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 submit this card to Butterfly Challenge #64 – Checkered and/or Cyan (I went for checkered only), and MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #302.

One more!

Yup, I’m having a productive day, this is my third card for today. And it’s horrible! No, not the card itself. But the fact there are spiders on it! I can’t believe I did that. I HATE spiders!! Even these little handdrawn monsters are creepy to me…

The Halloween stamp is from Vilda Stamps, and the ghosts are a stamp I designed for Reprint Artstamps ages ago.

I submit this card to a whole lot of challenges:

Here’s the reason why I’ve used those creepy creatures on my card – I got insired by the bottom right picture in this collage from Stampin’ Royalty challenge #349:

And this sketch from CAS Colours & Sketches challenge #195 was perfect for my card:

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:

I was also inspired by this image from Tuesday Throwdown #315:

I also submit this card to the following challenges:

Flowery birthday wishes

This must be the quickest card I have made in a very long time. Usually I spend a lot o time thinking about how I should make the card, which supplies to use, etc. But as soon as I saw the images from Muse and The Card Concept, I knew what I wanted to do. The sentiment stamp I used is from a clear stamps set from Verve Stamps, and the flowers are from an old set from Making Memories.

Muse Challenge #187 is this card by Tracey McNeely:

And this is how I interpreted it:

From this ice cream at The Card Concept #59, I picked up the colors for my flowers, and I chose the concept Clean & Simple:

A pink Christmas

Yesterday’s second Christmas was made for sketch #379 at Kortskissen. It’s interesting to see how all of us in the design team have interpreted the sketch in different ways. 😀 We’d love to see YOUR take on the sketch, too!

Besides Kortskissen, I also submit this card to the following challenges:

Vintage Christmas

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.

Time flies…

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:

Shiny green Christmas baubles

First card this week is a Christmas card (chances I’ll make more Christmas cards during the week are big). The baubles (and the ‘God Jul’) are peel off stickers (or outline stickers as I think they are called in the US) that I adhered to a very shiny green paper. Middle bauble is mounted with 3D foam squares for a bit of depth, and for extra bling I have put golden rhinestones on the baubles.

I found it soooo difficult to take photos of this card because of the shinyness (that’s not a word, is it?). Anyway. The card is made for the following challenges:

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.
