February being the month of love (Valentine’s Day), we have sketches with hearts all month at Kortskissen. Here’s the first one, sketch #447, and my card for it.

It was a very quick and easy card to make. The only thing I added was washi tape – one wide with the LOVE and one narrow black. The rest is the print on the paper.

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

It’s Easter time!

With Easter coming up next month, I’d better get started with the Easter cards. Here’s the first one, which I submit to the following challenges:

As square as it gets

I think it’s quite a while since I last participated in one of Inspired by All the Little Things’ challenges. I really liked the photo for their challenge #42, and got inspired by the black letters, red heart and wooden background.

I also submit my 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? 😉





Cute little birds

Here’s another Christmas card for today. Both the cute birds image and the sentiment stamp (which says “Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and New Year’s Holiday” in Swedish) are from Slöjd-Detaljer.

I’ve made the card for:




Let it snow

A Christmas card in red and gold. The lovely winter scenery is from a paper by Stamperia (I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I love their products!). I stamped a circle stamp with snowflakes, from Phil Martin Sentimentally Yours, on the round image, and embossed with gold embossing powder before I cut out the image. I punched snowflakes with two different Martha Stewart punches in golden paper. God Jul at the bottom of the card are peel-off stickers (outline stickers). I added Stickles Star Dust glitter glue along the snow on the image and in the middle of each snowflake.

I submit this card to The Paper Players challenge #319 – Tic Tac Toe (I chose red, glitter and snowflakes) and to A Gem of A Challenge #181 – Snowflakes.

It is also my card for this week’s Kortskissen, sketch #381.





You Make Me Happy

I made a happily yellow card today. 🙂 With the sentiment “You Make Me Happy” and a sun in the corner, it fits in on The Paper Players current challenge with the theme “You light up my life”. The stripes and dots also make it perfect for Allsorts challenge #375 – Spots and Stripes. Last but not least, it’s my contribution to Kortskissen’s sketch #369.





D is for Denim. And Dimension.

Guess what?! I’ve made a card! Yes, you read that right. Last card I posted here was almost a month ago. I had so much fun making this card, inspired by three different challenges:

Butterfly Challenge #58 – D is for Dimension and/or Denim. I found a cotton fabric with denim print in my stash, which was absolutely perfect for this challenge. Then a bit of dimension by using 3D dots under the Grattis stamp, and glueing just the body of the butterfly, lifting the wings up from the card (by the way, I almost always do that when using butterflies).

Shopping Our Stash challenge #262 is to use stitching. I don’t own a sewing machine, and was too lazy to stitch by hand, so I made faux stitches with Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze pen.

And then I used the sketch at The Paper Players challenge #305.





Trees it is

First Christmas card for today (I’m not sure yet if there will be more) is this card I made for three different challenges:

CASology week 176: Tree
CAS Colours & Sketches #154: Choose a past 2015 sketch and make it Christmassy (I chose sketch #113)
The Paper Players #275: A Color Challenge.

And yes, in Sweden we celebrate Christmas on the 24th.







You are so cool

A card for a cool teenager, maybe? Challenge #261 at The Paper Players was to make a note to stuck inte a child’s lunchbox. Or your honey’s lunchbox if you don’t have children. I have neither a honey nor children, but made what I think would suit a not so young kid. I used Sketch Saturday’s sketch #377 for the layout of my card. The cool graffiti paper is from K-Designs.
