Card sketch from Karlstad


Here is a card I made for one of the sketch challenges in Karlstad. I really really love how this one turned out mostly because of the amazing feathers punched out with a die from Simon Says Stamp that I borrowed from my friend Tesa. I GOT to have this die. I love it almost as much as I love coffey and candy. Not as much as I love my kids, husband and dogs but somewhere between that, coffey, candy and hot scones. I will not exchange my car for the dies but I could give up my last chocolate bar for it. I’ll even give up my favourite tea that my aunt buys for me in Falun since I can’t get it here. But um…. I think my mind slipped away for a while…


Back to the card. I colored the feathers with red ink from Hero Arts and then some golden mist on the tips. I also colored some Heidi Swapp Color Magic paper for the background, took an envelope and altered it a bit before stamping my favourite sentiment from one of my favourite Hero Art stamp sets. I actually bought the whole set just for this stamp but the others are great too. Anyways. I love this card, it’s very pretty and have I mentioned the feather die? It’s to die for ;) 

Thanks for stopping by. Tomorrow I will blog a LO also made in Karlstad. Lots of inspiration in that place!

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)

  1. Tack!!! Det är vit carstock som jag stansat ut ur, sen har jag färgat in topparna med en sån fingerdutt och stämpeldyna och sist målade jag topparna med lite guldmist så de skimrar lite :)
