I’m late again, I should’ve blogged this already last week. Oh well… Our challenge #134 at Through The Purple Haze is “Romantic”. Which was quite a bit of a challenge for me, as my usual cardmaking style is about as far from romantic as it possibly can be. I’m quite pleased with the outcome of my romantic card though. I used papers from my fave brand Stamperia, and stamps from one of my fave clear stamps set from Verve Stamps.
We have a brand new sketch for you at Kortskissen. You are welcome to join us and show your take on the sketch. Here’s mine:
It’s quite some time since I made a card for other challenges than the ones I’m in the design team for. When I saw CAS-ual Fridays challenge #182, CASE a Girl Friday I felt I needed to participate though. The challenge is to CASE (Copy And Steal Everything) a card by one of their designer from any past challenge. I chose a Christmas card by Alanna.
I also submit my card to the following challenges:
Our current challenge #178 at Cardz 4 Guyz is the theme Nature. The tree and the leaves I’ve stamped on my card is from a clear stamp set I designed for Slöjd-Detaljer. (this set is no longer available, but we have several other sets).
For this week’s sketch at Kortskissen, I got inspired by the lined background and the arrows. The steampunkish corner stamp is from Inkadinkado, and the tiny Happy Birthday stamp is from Wish.
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.
Ooh, I just realized I haven’t blogged my card for Through The Purple Haze challenge #132 – Marine/Sea theme. As I didn’t have any suitable stamp or image, I drew a seahorse on shimmery turquoise paper. The stripes of glitter washi symbolize the sea, and I thought it was a good play with words to write “Sea” instead of “See”. 🙂
A few months back, I started swapping decos* after a several years break from it. Here are the first ones I made.
*Deco; A small booklet, usually made on a certain theme, gets sent from person to person. Each person decorate a page on the given theme, and when all pages are filled, the deco is sent back to its owner.
