Christmas card for a man

Hi all! I hope you are all well in this stormy weather! At least that is how it is in Sweden today.

When I created this card, I was constantly thinking "for a man". I didn´t want it to sweet, but still a warm and cosy feeling. The image is from "the Stamping boutique".

And once again it became a easel card. :)

Stair step card! again! :)

Hi everyone!

It is fun! New foldings! So I had to do another stair step card (thank you for letting me know the english word!)

This time with a Kenny K digital freebie. This months freebie, I think.
The sentiment is written in Word and then I have cut it out with my die. :)

I have colored my image with promarkers, as usual.

One little flower is on my card, and that flower comes from WOC.

Here is my card:


And a close up on my colored image:


Cute little boy, isn´t he?!

My first "trappstegskort"

Hi all!

Over at Crafts and me Challenge they have this challenge called simples!

I don´t think it is easy to do a simple card!! In fact it is a real challenge!! :)

So I decided to take the step full out. I have no decoration at all! I just have design papers and digital stamps that I have colored and used only three die cuts totally. That isn´t much for being me!

The beautiful girl comes from Crafts and me.
My two sentiments comes from Marion82. Link in sidebar. Thank you!

So, when I had to keep it simple, I wanted to try a new fold. I have no idea what it is called in english, but in swedish we say "trappstegskort". A easy one of these, said the tutorial i read. It was fun to try a new folding!! I read about it here! Thank you!

Here is my steampunk "trappstegskort"   :)

Lizzie from Make it Crafty

Hi all!

Today I just wanted to share a colored digital stamp with you. I realize my choise of colors is quite often...not the normal colors. I think I am gonne try and be a bite more traditional, if I can. :) Because I love to create cards with other colors, but I don´t like to give them away, then I want more traditional cards.....

But this digital image is not colored in traditional colors again. Isn´t she sweet? She takes a long time to color, because of the many many places for shades, which makes her sooo fun to color!!


I am gonne make a card of her. I had a picture in my head, but I didn´t finish it last night, which means I have forgot how I was thinking. So now I will see if i can create something nice of her anyway. Will look for some inspiration in challenges and see if I can come up with something. :)

Have a nice sunday!

Card after a sketch

Hi all!

Today i have crafted a card after a sketch!
It was a fun and beautiful sketch!

I chose to do a christmas card. This is starting to feel good, all the cards I have already crafted!
I have a snowflake and vintage corner on this card. I don´t think they is easy to spot in the picture, looks more in RL...

This is one of my oldest stamps, was so fun to get it inked and colored again! And fun to see my coloring has improved since last time! :)

Santa Claus is coming to town!

Hi all!

Yes, Christmas is coming closer and closer! Don´t mean to scare you, but I think I will mostly focus on Christmas challenges for a while so i get some cards done in time! (well, I have to do other things too, otherwise it will be boring, right?)

And in my family Santa is a girl. Guess who dresses out to Santa? And my daughter told me the second she saw me - Mummy-Santa!!! She was only two years old, and I was vering a big mask. There is no way I could foul my daughter. :)

I think one could say I like easel cards! LOL!
I think they add something extra. :)

The beautiful big roses are from WOC. One red and one orange, love them!
I have colored with my promarkers, as usual. :)
And I have used a Magnolia stamp.

One thing I wanted to try out with this card was if there was possible to do a Christmas card in warm colors. Therefore i started out with orange as a base for my red. Normaly i start with pink.

Updated*
This is a photo i took today, outside, it is more true to the colors the card actually have! The photography of the card is very important!!




I have made this card for tree challenges:

Have a nice day!

Hugs Sandra
