Card inspired by Halloween and a sketch

I don't celebrate Halloween, but I love Halloween colors and stamps, there are so many cute and fun ones!

So I decided to make one, following the sketch over at Try Stampin' on Tuesday, For coloring I used my new Posca pencils for the first time. I see the ghodst could be a bit whiter, but I think it looks a lot whiter IRL. I used two stamp sets, one from Time for Tea and one from October Afternoon. The cobweb die used is from MFT.

This card is for:

Autumn colors and Retro Rubber sketch

I have had this Lawn Fawn set - love you a latte - for about 8 years, and it was only yesterday, as I watched a video about this set, that I realized the donut was not an odd looking saucer. Now that I know it's a donut I cannot understand why I didn't see that before! Suddenly I felt I had found a treasure in my stash, and I had fun decorating the donut with brown and red fine glitter, glitter glue and some tinsel looking glitter.
The background was made with a stencil from Altenew, and autumn colored  Distress Oxide inks ((yellow, red, green and brown) and a baby wipe. I added matching colored rhinstones for some extra sparkle.
The card layout was inspired by the Retro Rubber Challenges sketch.

INK #274 - Photo Challenge (lace and kraft)

For the next 2 weeks we have a photo challenge at Inkspirational. I was inspired by the lace, kraft and string to make my card.
I used Tim Holtz Numeric stamps, heat embossed with white EP. The die cut sentiment is in Norwegian. The lace and rose border and string are all from my stash.

Please head over to the challenge blog to see the my INK-teamies have made.

My favorite cards to make are masculine ones, and I love nautical themed cards. For this card I started off using several different colored inks to make the panel.
I didn't use any masking technique, I just stamped the images after inking and colored with Promarkers and a white gel pen on top.
I used 3 stamps from Heartfelt Creations, a postcard stamp I believe is from TPC and the border with different plants came free with a magazine ages ago.
The sentiment is a die cut one in Norwegian, I love the font and I think you'll see this on several cards in the future.

Motorcycle chick(en)

Spots and stripes is an old favorite combination of mine, and I think one can never have enough of these patterns in one's stash.
The same goes for glitter of any sorts for sparkle. Here I added strips of black glitter paper.

The chick was colored with Promarkers and a a white gel pen. The sentiment is a sticker from Art by Marlene.

The wreath is a stamp from an Altenew set, I stamped it three times and fussy cut. The flowers are Altenew and Prima, stamped on a book page and fussy cut. The striped DP is Maja Design and I chose a sentiment in Norwegian - today is your day.

August Card Chain Challenge Reveal

Here's my card for The Card Chain Challenge August reveal. Anyone can enter and if you'd like to be part of the September chain you can sign up here until til 6th. 
This is the card I sent to Hilary in the UK. I was inspired by the sketch and the theme of friendship. I used a stencil and a script stamp to make the background, and I used stamps from different sets to make the sentiment, and the flower die cuts are from Tim Holtz and the butterflies are from Poppy Stamps. I chose to keep it monochromatic, using one of my favorite colors, purple.


I recieved this pretty card from Greta in Oregon. I love how she chose the color scheme to make this sparkly rainbow, and I think she was treally clever to use oval dies to make rainbow - the thought has never occured to me, but I sure won't forget it:)
