Ages ago I made a whole bunch of cards in brown and black, mainly using the gorgeous Steampunk paper pad from Italian brand Stamperia (my absolute fave brand of papers!). Anyway, I made two posts showing my cards. Here’s the third and final part.
Today’s card is for Kortskissen sketch #432. I used the sketch very vaguely, adding a square with an image instead of the heart that is on the sketch. Designer paper, image and the Christmas greeting are all from a Christmas paper pad by my fave brand Stamperia.
I also submit my card to Creates and Makes Challenge #15 – Anything Goes
Our current challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz is “Something beginning with the letter D”. I couldn’t figure out having any suitable decorations or stamps for Dogs, Dinosaurs… whatever… Just now, I realize I could’ve made a Christmas card with a Deer. Oh well. I went for Date as my D word.
Quite some time ago, I posted a few cards I made with the gorgeous Steampunk papers from Stamperia. Here are a few more from that cardmaking session:
I’ve been making a whole bunch of cards with papers from the most wonderful paperpack Steampunk by Stamperia, along with a few other papers in the same color scheme. As I said, a whole bunch, so I’ll divide them into a few blog posts. Here’s part 1.
I submit the first of these cards to the following challenges:
For this card, the only thing besides the papers, is a birthday stamp from Verses:
The Congratulations stamp on this card, is from Viva Las Vegastamps. The corners and border around the card is the paper print, but I completed the look with a corner stamp from Vilda Stamps just outside the Congratulations. I added some black rhinestones as decoration:
The sentiment on this card is from the stamp set “Stuff To Say” by Tim Holtz. The only thing I’ve added besides papers and stamped sentiment, are small black dots (with Sakura Glaze pen) along the border:
Today’s card is a Happy Birthday card in a vintage kind of style. I submit it to the following challenges:
Second and last Christmas card for day is in traditional colors. When making a card for a vintage themed challenge, my first thought was brown and/or sepia. But thinking about it, red, gold and green works just as fine for a vintage look. So, here we go with this time’s challenges. Thank God it’s Christmas – I wouldn’t be able to combine this many challenges in one card if most blogs didn’t have Christmas challenges. 😉
Another card where I’ve used paper and image from the wonderful Stamperia. God Jul stamp is from YouDo. I submit this card to the following challenges:
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 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.
