I wonder if I have set my own record now, on how many challenges one card can be for?! This card is for the following challenges:
I haven’t figured out how and for what to use my acetate from We R Memory Keepers. When I was about to make my card for CAS(E) This Sketch #137 last night, I thought that the acetate would be perfect or that layout.
It can be difficult to adhere acetate without glue, tape etc showing through. A tip is that if your acetate is patterned, place the adhesive behind the patterns. Mine is striped, so I adhered it with strips of double-sided tape along the back of the stripes.
All products used can be purchased at Slöjd-Detaljer.
A clean and simple get well card, based on sketch #136 at CAS(E) this Sketch. A strip of patterned paper, a stamp and a heart sticker is all that’s needed. 🙂
“Warning! A hug may jump out when you open…” That’s what the sentiment on this card means in English. When I saw this sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch, I immediately thought of splashes of Dylusions Ink Spray. I haven’t used mine in ages, and as far as I can remember I’ve never used them on a card, only for art journaling.
When I started making this card, I wasn’t sure of the purpose. But after picking out paper suitable for both the sketch and the color theme the card is made for, I realized that with clouds and a butterly, a summer greeting was perfect for the card. The sentiment means “Have a nice summer” in English. So, the challenges I made the card for, are CAS(E) This Sketch #127 and The Paper Players #249.
Card base – Docrafts Anita’s
Dotted paper – Inkido

I quite enjoyed the extra challenge of making one card suitable for several challenges. So today I move up from yesterday’s three challenges to four challenges! The challenges are as follow:
A sketch (click on image to visit the challenge blog post):
Colors (click on image to visit the challenge blog post):
A code word (click on image to visit the challenge blog post) – texture:
And a cue card (click on image to visit the challenge blog post) – shine:
And, here we go, the card! 😀 I guess the use of sketch and colors is quite obvious. The corrugated cardboard as well as the texture of the glitter cardstock, are for Texture. The pieces of glittery cardstock are for Shine. Shine as in being sprakly glittery, as well as having the shape of rays shining down.
Card base – Papermania
Corrugated cardboard – Papercraft Scandinavia
Glitter cardstock – three different brands, but unfortunately I don’t remember which
Rub-on sentiment – KaiserCraft (product no longer available)
Bling stars – Papermania
Long time no see! I think life just got in the way, and I haven’t been crafting much at all. Anyway, I’m back now. 🙂
Here’s my card for CAS(E) This Sketch #176. I’m not fully satisfied with the result, but I’m excused because I haven’t made any cards for ages, right?
Card base – Slöjd-Detaljer
Designer paper – Vintage Spring Basics collection by Maja Design
Lily of the Valley stamp and sentiment stamp – Slöjd-Detaljer (designed by me 🙂 )
Buttons – Stamperia
For CAS(E) this Sketch‘s latest challenge, I made a Valentine’s card. I think this is the last Valetine’s card for this year though.
Here’s my take on the sketch. The designer paper I used as background is actually from a Christmas collection. But I thought it matched perfectly with the colors of the vintage image! “Du & jag” means “You & me” in English.
The CAS(E) This Sketch #56 inspired me to make a faux envelope. It’s not an envelope at all, just the front of the card decorated to look like an envelope. And yes, I flipped the sketch.
Designer paper – no idea, it’s old scraps
God Jul clear stamp – my own design for Skapa Hobby, no longer available
