It’s the crazy card week of the year, at least that’s what it looks like to me!
Anyhow, today’s card is for the CFC challenge #35 which is all about making a clean and simple card with scallops and here’s my somewhat clean(?) but very simple card!
It’s hard to get good pictures when the card is very red, especially bright red or I just need a new camera (which I’ve already stated and it’s coming this year!) but you get the idea, the green does look somewhat better in real, slightly less yellowish (and dusty, he he).
And by the way, the card says ”you’re so sweet” but it looks like I’ve spelled it sweat, I promise I didn’t! I’m just a bad and sloppy writer :P
Today I was inspired enough to make a card for the CASE Study Challenge #73 (CSC73). I started to think about the card yesterday, looking through paper and testing color combinations and today was all about putting it all together! I’m happy with the cards that doesn’t take me hours to finish, it was just about quick enough!
Here’s the card for the lovely challenge, I really liked the inspiration card and I hope I will use this technique many times (I just have to get me a few everywhere punches or similar).
I don’t know why but ”tack” looks so much harder than ”thanks” when written, it just never turns out good! Next time I’ll have a go with something in German for my granny. Now it’s time for some sleep, I have to get up early for work this week. Exhausting!
I read about a Gray, white and red card challenge at Going Buggy and thought it would be a nice challenge for making a somewhat more masculine card than I usually create. I also fell in love with the prices for the challenge, two super smart ProMarker wallets (one for each winner)! It’s exactly what I need to organize my pens! Super, super smart! If I don’t win I’ll add this to my wishlist for my birthday (but it’s over six months until then, who can wait?!).
Anyway, no chance to win without a card, right? So here’s what I came up with, found some inspiration online this time. I usually have a hard time figuring out what layout to use for the cards, that’s why I tend to enter layout challenges rather than themed ones, he he. Enough said.
I don’t know what’s going on but I’ve made four cards within the last week and I have a few more challenges I plan to participate in! I even craft when I get home from work which I normally don’t. I hope this is my inspiration coming back, otherwise I’m just terribly bored and rather craft than wash the dishes, he he, either way I’m happy with it!
Last minute crafting, here’s a card for the daring cardmakers challenge ”First Friday” Colour Combo1 and my cousin who will be 1 year next week, yay!
The card says ”Congratulations Lukas!” and I’m actually quite pleased with it, but now I have to go to bed. It’s friday tomorrow and that means I have to go to work a bit earlier. Hopefully my beginning cold will be better, but I doubt it to be honest..
Anyway, here’s another crappy picture of the card! I have to improve my photographic skills and buy a new camera. Luckily the lightning will be better later on, it’s so dark here in Sweden during the winter months.
The card is actually less yellow in real, but since I only have indoor lightning the pictures get a yellow tint and when I photoshopped it a bit the lightest paper became plain and white which it isn’t so.. oh well.. you get the idea and I get to sleep!
One of my friends from high school is graduating from medical school tomorrow and I decided to make her a card and combine it with the Less is more week 49 challenge which is ”Predominantly Purple”. I love purple, I really do! But I tend not to make my cards purple so it was a bit of a challenge, as it always is! I’m not too satisfied with the card but at least I took some time to craft which I’ve barely done the last few months.
The sentiment says ”The future belongs to those who believe in their dreams.” Classic I must say, it was this sentiment or the one I used the last time ”A walk of a thousand miles always starts with one step”. I asked my friend Simon for some help and he voted for the dream sentiment and I must admit it was the one I felt was most right too. I wish I had a more fitting stamp for a future doctor but I guess you’ll never have enough stamps?
Anyway, here’s the card!
Sorry for the crappy picture, my camera ran out of batteries.. again! The dark background is very dark violet and the card has a slightly more red tint than it looks on the picture.
