Inspired by a photo

Today starts a new challenge over at Catch the Bug and this week we have a photo for you to pick inspiration from.

I was inspired by the the cottage and used wooden texture as well as green and yellow colors.
The wooden paper was sent to me by Monika. The image is Sunflower Vase from the Bugaboo store, colored with Promarkers, and I added die cut leaves, lace and string. The birthday greeting was heat embossed in gold onto vellum.

Girl with kitty

Tuesday is new release day over at  Bugaboo and this is one of Jodie's latest images.
The colors aren't as pale in real life as the appear here, but this time of year I struggle getting good photos unless it's a beautiful and sunny autumn day. I could probably do with a new camera too.
Back to my card - I went for a layered design with ripped corrugated card board, a leftover piece of patterned paper and two different ribbons. I added birthday sentiments on the banners.

Catch the Bug - Sketch #517

Today we have a new sketch challenge over at Catch the Bug and I have used one of the Chef Pierre images, colored with Promarkers, to make a masculine card.

I just recently found m clock die from Marianne, it's been missing for a year or so, so I wanted to use it again. And I used two strips of washi tape and a fun birthday greeting in Norwegian.

Catch the Bug Bingo challenge

Today starts a new challenge over at Catch the Bug and this week it's time for playing BINGO.
I used the vertical row on the right. The die cut is the clock and I attached a gem at its centre. The goofy ghost got decorated with ribbon. I added two foam ghosts from my stash and birthday greeting.

CAS One Layer Card

Mojo has been lacking since refrbishment and holiday, so today I decided to clean up my craft room to see if that wold help. It actually didd, I was able to make a couple of cards.
This is a clean and simple one layer card made with stamps from 3 different sets. I felt it was a bit dark with the black and kraft paper only, but it helped with a few touches with my white gel pen. And for once I made a one layer card which didn't require several attempts - yay!

This card is for:
Inkspirational - One Layer Card

If the broom fits

I meant to put this up on my blog for Thursday at the same time as it went live on Catch the Bug, but time just flew by so quickly this week, and suddenly Saturday is here.
Better late than never I suppose, so here's my card with a fun Stella image and a DP with bats, which I rememberd being in my stash seeing the DD mood board.

A really simple card, I just colored the image, cut it out and mounted it on foam.  I gave her a red cape, but I actually now believe it's her broom. Oh, well.
Have a great weekend!

    Birthday balloons

    Hi! Not too many posts from me lately, since my break it feels like a card takes ages to make.
    Today we have a new sketch challenge over at Catch the Bug and as soon as I saw it I was thinking of balloons, so on they went along with an image colored ages ago, called Cat Rat Birthday.
    I don't typically use much green on my non-Christmas cards, but here there's a lot.

    I've made a birthday card using Halloween inspired colors (see photo) and merging two images from the Bugaboo store:  Magical Tidbits Bookshelf and Wizardry Wizard 06.

    I made the backgrond keeping the paper in the die while sponging. When that was done I used a stencil anda brush to add some more color to allow the pattern so be subtle and still visible.
    I added a birthday greeting and sequin stars.
