They challenged us to do a combined style and scraplift of their talented designteam.
First out , ( challenge #359 )was Gloria with a absolutely fabulous vintage card. I just love her style and how she has managed to arrange all the details on her card.
So, I thought it was a bit difficult to do her card justice... Well, here´s my card.
I scraplifted pretty much the whole concept.. the colours, the layout and choice of materials.
The sentiment on the ticket reads " Now and forever"
Thanks Gloria for excellent inspiration!
Next out was Audrey on challenge # 360. she has a very colourful and vibrant style. Very far from what I usually create. Don´t get me wrong... I love that style! I just find it difficult to create like that.
First of all, I´m not very good at colour my stamped images.... so, I don´t do that to often.... ; )
And second... I tend to choose softer colours ... and more embellishment = )
But this time I had great fun making a card in this style! I scraplifted the stripes, the stamped and cut-out image and the use of other stamps on the background.
By the way... I just love this cheeky girl! Isn´t she totally cool, or what?
Thank you Audrey, for giving me the courage to use this bold colours and to use my stamps!
Challenge #361 was Kristie´s. She has a classy and fresh style. She´ll never "over-do" her cards.
Once again, I had to struggle a little to take on that challenge.
But finally, it all came together...
Her card gave me the inspiration to make a more masculine card. I used bold blue combined with just white and a bit of yellow. This will be a card for a graduation.
So... what did I scraplift of Kristie then...?
Well... I lifted the framed sentiment, the scalloped border and her way of decorating her card with just one embellishment. I just changed her button for a bouquet of flowers = )
Thanks alot Kristie for great inspiration and the chance to go outside of my comfortzone.
Here comes my take on challenge #362. This time it was time for us to scraplift one of Amy´s playful cards! I have to say that I feel good inside when I see her cards. So joyful and outside the box!
Her style is to use strong colours, different patterns and embellishment that will put a smile on your face!
I felt that it was very much to live up to... but I gave it a try... See for yourself... Did I do ok?
I made my card in shape of an easteregg. I even included a feder for that extra touch, haha.
This card was so much fun to make and I´m sure that it won´t be the last time that I use this kind of colours and patterns... So, thank you Amy for pushing me to this!
For challenge #363, it was Sophie´s gorgeous card we had to lift.
Her style is clean and simple... quite the opposite from me...
I just had to have a go on this one...
I went for less-is-more and lifted the circle, the ribbon(...although I changed it for a piece of lace)
and the stamped sentiment.
I really like the way my card turned out. Clean and simple.... just like Sophie´s card.
So, thanks Sophie, for the chance to play around with this use of fewer embellishments. It was great fun!
Last, but not least, there was Vichy´s time to challenge us on day 364.
She loves the softer colours and flowers... Like I do... = )
So I thought this was going to be an easy challenge...HA! As if lifting her cute card could be easy... So much to live up to I think.
But it wouldn´t be me if I backed out on an challenge... So I dived right into the assignment.
I first thought of lifting the colours, but I soon changed my mind in favour of this pale beige paper with soft dots. It reminds me of summer and the soft sand on the beach = )
Instead, of lifting the colours, I lifted the use of ribbons, the stamped and coloured image on white, and of course...flowers ! I think my flowers are so cute!
Well Vicky... did I do ok on lifting your card? It sure was fun and I think I´ll have to start using up my ribbons now... Thanks for a great lift !
And today there was the final Super Sketchy Sunday #365. Today they reached day 365.... and tomorrow they will start a whole new year, full of fantastic challenges!
But I wanted to have a go on the last sketch... and here´s my take....
I put my punches to use. Both the retro-flowers and the threading water-punch. Lovely! I love my punches and just wish I had more to choose from... But I guess I have to settle with the ones I have....for now! = )
Well! It´s been quite a busy cardmaking weekend for me.... I made the last 3 cards today ... plus two more cards that are for a competition , so I can´t show them yet. Oh, I almost forgot...I also made 2 LO´s for the same competition.
The other cards, that I show here, were made last night... Like I said... quite a busy cardmaking weekend.
Thanks for stopping by.... I would really love it, if you left me a comment before you go....
Please come back tomorrow! I have some absolutely great news to share!
~~ LOVE! Sophia ~~
