Back for my regular Sunday card!

Welcome back!
Hope you are having a lovely weekend and that you´ve managed to find time to be crafty!
Today I´m here to show a card I´ve made for the sketch at 365 Cards. I just love working with sketches. The outcome doesn´t always look like the original, but I think that´s the point with sketches. You are supposed to twist and turn it ...perhaps even change the elements or shapes a little. To take the sketch and turn it into yours. But I know not everyone agrees with me on this. Might be why I´m being called a rebel sometimes.... ; )

Purple and brown...a fab combination! The sentiment meens like "Coffee?" I´m gonna send this one to my mother when she gets back from her vacation. Think she´ll have plenty to tell about her trip to Thailand...and might have some pictures to show as well! Sure hope so! = )
Put my Martha Stewart border punch to use... ; )
Lovely papers, right?! It´s from a swedish manufacturer called Maja Design. Gorgeous patterns and quality!

As you can see, I flipped the sketch. But other then that, I think I stuck quite well to the original. Don´t you agree?!

Hope you come and play along today...Don´t forget to uplink your card when you´re done with it. Now run along to 365 Cards to check out some more awsome dt sample cards!

If you like, feel free to leave a litte note to let me know you were here and to let me come visit you back.

Friday challenge for a change!

Hi there!
I´m back with a card that I made for the Friday challenge at 365 Cards. Just filling in for Jennifer, while she´s still on vacation.
The challenge was a really fun one. It´s called "Boy meets girl" and you´re about to find out why.
"Use girly papers and make a card for a little boy, or take a paper suitable for a little boy and make a card for a girl. It´s that simple!"

And, as you can see, I decided to make a card for a girl. I searched thru my stash and found this doublesided paper that is really cool. I cut out some flames and attached them to the front before I put on some glitter glue on the edges. Added a few more flames, that I mounted on pop-dots.

The sassy girl is a stamp from a swedish designer namned Katja. Some attitude in that rocker girl don´t you think?!

Ok...hope you come play along on this fun challenge. And make sure to be back here tomorrow, as I then present my take on the Sunday super sketch! That´ll be fun! ; )

Kenny K challenge

Hi there!

I´m just gonna post this card quickly. I made it for challenge 57 over at Kenny K´s.
I simply just looove their stamps! Soo sassy and with plenty of attitude!

Well, anyway, the challenge is to use layers on the card. Not just one or two, but more than one usually does. I think I met the requirements with this card ; ) You be the judge to that.

I colored the image with my distress inkpads and waterbrush. Highlighted her eye and the guitar with glossy accent, but it was hard to capture with the camera.

Hope you´ve liked what you´ve seen. Please, feel free to leave a little note, so I can come visit you in return. ; )

Have a lovely weekend!

Off to do some cardmaking...

Hi there!
Sunday it is, and therefor I have a lovely card ready to show!
It´s a take on the Sunday Sketch at 365 Cards and I stuck by it quite well I think. No "rebel" here this week, haha.
I´ll leave you to see my pictures before I tell a bit about how I made it, ok?

For the border with flowers, I have cut a strip of CS and then punched out three "retro flowers" evenly in the middle. I used both the strip and the flowers.

First I attached my strip of CS to the card. Then I inked the petals a bit before folding them gently. Adding another punched out flower to the center of my first one and topping it off with a sweet pearl.

I wanted it to look like the flowers were still stuck to the strip, so I glued them back in place. I just made sure the petels rose from the background. Piece of cake!....and a lovely look, right?!

The sentiment, "grattis" meaning "congratulations", are covered with crackle accent to add interest and a more genuin look.

And here we have the sketch that I used....fab one isn´t it?

Hope you´ll play along with us on 365 Cards.

Ok...now I´ll have to go. I´m invited to a crop in Västerås to some people that I don´t know...yet! I´m soo looking forward to this and I hope to meet some new friends!

Hope you´ll have a wonderful week ahead of you!

Vintage week on 365 Cards

Hi there!
I´m here today with a card that I made for this Super Sketchy Sunday at 365 Cards.
Fab sketch...fab theme starting today....and best of all - a fab prize for one lucky winner!
It´s former 365´er, Gloria Stengel, that is sponsoring with a full load of Graphic 45 goodies! How about that?! All you need to do is to play along in at least one of the challenges this week...not very hard, right?

Well...I told you I had a card to show and here it is! = ) Enjoy!

And, of course, a little close-up on the lovely TH birdcage with it´s sweet contents of flowers.

I have wet embossed and distressed the birdcage to get a older look to it. Gorgeous don´t you think?!

And the sentiment "God Jul" means "Merry Christmas". A Christmas card in the middle of the summer...? Crazy! you might think...Well, I was inspired by the sketch to make a Christmas card and so I did! ; )

Now let´s see what you get inspired to create....here´s the sketch!

And when you´re done cardmaking, don´t forget to come back to 365 Cards to let us know!

Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday.

I will try to enjoy it as much as I can, since it´s the last one before school starts again on Wednesday! = )

But that will be great too! Getting back to routines and a more regular life!

Hope to see you back soon!

Late posting is better than none!

Hi there!
Summer, vacationtime, lazy days with the family....that leaves not much time to be crafty or taking care of the blogging part.
Today I wanted to share my card for 365 Cards for challenge day 146. I know...I´m a little behind on my posting...two weeks to be specific! But better late than never, right? Soo..I´d better stop rambling and show you my card instead. = )
Below you will find, not only my take on the sketch, but the sketch itself.

Thanks for stopping by!

Stay crafty...

Hugs and love!


Rebel take...or just a free interpretation..? ; )

Hi there!
Sunday it is and that calls for a card, right? ; )
You´re so right about that, and I´m not gonna disappoint you. This week, Pam gave us a new, lovely sketch and I instantly felt the urge to bring out my distressinks ands Heidi Swapp masks. It´s been a while since I played with the HS masks and it was so much fun!
Soo...without further delay...here´s my "rebel take" on the sketch...or, as one can call it, my free interpretation! = )

And I think you need to see the sketch as well...just to determine if it´s a free interpretation or worse - a rebel take...!?

Hope you feel inspired to take on the challenge yourself and have a go with the sketch. Don´t forget to come to 365 Cards and post a link to your blogpost. We would really love to see what you come up with...and you might even be the lucky one to win a prize...

Have a wonderful week and stay crafty!

Hugs and love!
