Chicken and eggs

I really liked the clean and simple look of the sketch at Fusion’s Paris Rain challenge, and I decided to go with the sketch only and not the image. I made an Easter card with an old paper (yes, I have lots of old supplies after working in a scrapbook store for five years, before my five years at a craft store…) from Forma Hantverk. Glad Påsk is Swedish for Happy Easter, and is from a clear stamps set by Slöjd-Detaljer (it’s retired, but there are plenty of other clear stamps sets available).

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

A flower for you

My card for this week’s sketch at Kortskissen is a small CAS (clean & simple) card that’s perfect for enclosing when giving flowers to someone. The sentiment is Swedish for “A flower for you”. That stamp is from a clear stamp set I designed for Slöjd-Detaljer, unfortunately not available any more though. The flower stamp if from a Heidi Grace set I’ve had for years.

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


Today’s second and last card is a clean and simple card inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #271:

I also submit this card to the following challenges:

Kortskissen #391

Sketch #391 at Kortskissen is up an running. Come join us in the fun and show us how you interpret the sketch. 😀 Here’s my take on it.

I also submit this card to:

Glittery snowflakes

I’m starting the day with some glitter. Pieces of white cardstock are mounted on red glitter paper. As decorations I’ve used bling swirls and glitter snowflake stickers. “God Jul” are Thickers that I’ve had for ages but never used (I learnt that old Thickers lose the adhesivity and need to be glued on).

Guess what? I’ve made this card for some challenges. Surprise, huh? 😉





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:





Pretty flowers

Here’s my card for CAS-ual Fridays #142, to use pretty patterns, and for Less is More #238’s sketch.




It’s Valentine’s Day very soon…

…and when being late with making Valentine’s cards, keep them clean and simple!

Here’s what I made tonight. As clean and simple as it possibly can be.


I absolutely LOVE that “Dig” stamp, which can be combined with other words! Dig is the Swedish word for You.

The first card I made was for CAS-ual Fridays‘ latest challenge, which is to make a card with an embellishment extending past the edge:


Chipboard heart – Reprint
Red acrylic paint (on heart) – Martha Stewart
Älskar Dig (Love You) clear stamps – Slöjd-Detaljer
Washi tape – Slöjd-Detaljer

Next card is inspired by CASE Study Challenge #177:


Bara till Dig (Just for You) clear stamps – Slöjd-Detaljer
Heart stickers – Slöjd-Detaljer

And finally, a small box:


Twine – We R Memory Keepers
Letter stickers – Basic Grey
Heart Sticker – Slöjd-Detaljer
Box – Slöjd-Detaljer

One tree two trees three trees

Another clean and simple Christmas card. Made for CAS-ual Fridays CFC122 where your project should feature a tree or trees. Mine features three Christmas trees.


Christmas tree rubber stamp – Slöjd-Detaljer (no longer available)
Golden pen for filling in the stars – Staedtler Triplus gel-liner

Create with 8

Latest challenge at CAS-ual Fridays was to create with 8. I.e. use 8 of something. I had quite some difficulties with that. I’ve learned that you should use things in odd numbers, like 3,5 or 7. Now I’ll use things in an even number?!? Oh my! 😉 Anyway, for my clean and simple card with 8, I ended up using 8 peel off snowflakes. Actually everything on the card – the snowflake, the line and the text, are peel off stickers. And that, my friends, is why the text isn’t completely straight. It wasn’t that easy at all getting those tiny word stickers in place…
