Yes, it’s that time of the year. Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. Many of the card challenge blogs I follow, have love and/or Valentine as themes for their current challenges. At Cardz 4 Guyz challenge #188, our theme is “Something beginning with L”. I chose Love. So did some of the others in the design team, while other chose other L words. This is my last card for Cardz 4 Guyz. It’s been fun to be a part of their talented design team, but I want to free more time for other crafts so therefore leaving the team.
This card is an example that things aren’t always what they appear to be, lol. I wanted a black and white striped paper for background. I didn’t have any, so I added stripes of black washi to a white paper. The LOVE chipboard letters had other colors, so I colored them with black marker. The heart was gray chipboard, so colored it with golden marker. The I and U were green (the only letter stickers I had in the perfect size). I tried to color them with white marker, but unfortunately the green still shine through i tiny little bit. The heart inbetween I and U was red with white dots, I colored it with white marker.
I also submit my card to the following challenges:
Today’s first card (I’m not sure if there will actually be any more today) has a cut out heart covered in stripes of washi tapes, and flowers cut out from a coloring paper (I didn’t have any suitable flower stamps). Grattis is a clear stamp from Slöjd-Detaljer.
I submit my card to the following challenges:
It was really fun to make this card, with its totally untraditional Christmas colors. I actually made it for a person whose favorite colors are purple, lime green, blue and turquoise. As always, I’m participating in a few challenges. Well, this time more than just a few.
It’s almost mid September, and I assume that means fall is here now. So what suits better than making a “autumn greetings” card. I’ve used various designer papers, matting each piece on dark brown cardstock. The leaf corners is a clear stamp I designed for Slöjd-Detaljer. That stamp set is retired now, but we have plenty of other stamps! 😀 “Hösthälsningar” (“autumn greetings”) is a stamp by Carolina Emdin.
As always, my card is made for a few blog challenges:
Time Out’s challenge #38 is to be inspired by the photo below. I picked up the colors, and realizing that those navy colors are also air mail colors, I used papers from Pink Paislee’s Pen Pals collection and a type writer from Papermania that I got ages ago but have for some reason not used until now. The layout of the card is inspired by sketch #201 at Freshly Made Sketches.
That’s the theme of Time Out Challenge #37 – Friendship is golden. To use friendship and/or golden on your card. I chose both. As always, a clean and simple card, with gold glittery paper, gold glittery washi tape and a friend rubon from KaiserCraft.
What? Was I supposed to use my old huge stash of colored cardbases? I have of idea what you’re talking about. 😉 Back to the kraft again. 😀 This week’s challenge at Time Out, was to CASE (“copy and steal everything”) a card by Alice.
Here’s the card we were CASEing:
And here’s my take on it:
At this challenge at Time Out Challenges, was a wonderful card to be inspired by. Instead of kind of copy the card, I went for something completely different. I chose to pick up the cloud with hearts beneath, and went from there. The result is a colorful clean and simple card.
The card to get inspired by:
And here’s my card:
Designer paper – Sassafras
Happy Birthday rubber stamp – K-Designs
Today’s first Christmas card is finished. I made it for two different challenges. TIME OUT challenge #18, where the challenge was to get inspired by a photo. I picked up the colors, and used them for the kraft cardbase and corrugated board and the fabric tape. And I used the sketch from CAS Colours and Sketches.
