Amanda has made a great sketch this week over on JCBC. Here is my christmascard.

This post is made before I left on holidays. I'm still on vacation and will not post any new cards the next three weeks. Sorry for that, but I will not have the posibility to use internet.

Summery birthdaycard

This is a birthdaycard for a special brother-in-law. His birthday is coming up soon. The sailboat image is a stamp I borrowed from a friend. I have coloured it using colour pencils. Corners are a stamp from Lissie Design. Lace, ribbon and dew drops from stash.
Insides with spellbinders' scalloped circles. I've put a drop of glitterglue in between the bows. Text stamp from Kort i hodet "Have a nice day!"

Personal stamp from Scrapmagasinet.

Today I have to pack up all my things before I leave on holidays. We are travelling by car with both the dogs and the guinnea pig. We have planned to go to Norway's highest mountain, Galdhøpiggen (2469 meters), and I cross my fingers that we'll have nice weather this day. Apart from that we have decided to visit both my parents-in-law and my mother.

Have a great summer everyone. If I get the chance to be on the internet I'll post something, but if not I won't be back until the end of this month.

Hugs, Kristin :)

Wedding card

A wedding card for a customer. I really had a hard time making this card. The customer wanted the special shape on her card (I had made one for her before so she knew what I was capable of making :)) She wanted something summery and romantic since the wedding will be later this month.

I've used a stamp from Kort & Godt Hobby (image) and then embossed it in black. The text (from KH Design) is also embossed. The names and the date are made by using a QuicKutz alphabet. The flowers are stamps from Magnolia which I have coloured with Twinkling H20 and cut out. Some of them are put on 3D-foam pads to stand out a little.
This is how the card looks like from the side when it's folded.

And this is the card folded out.
The upper left panel has a lace with hearts. I've put some pearl flowers on it and a ribbon with a golden charm.

The upper right panels are covered with a text saying "When to hearts meet a star is lit which shows the way to happiness". The hearts are put on 3D pads and covered with diamond glaze. The rings and the text "Happiness" is embossed both in gold and black. More cut-out flowers.

Lower left panels are decorated with a frame (stamp from Papirdesign) with QuicKutz letters in gold and green. The tickets are a stamp from KH Design and says "Real love lasts forever".

On the last panel I've put a white paper for my customer to write something herself. The corner swirls are a stamp from KH Design. I've coloured in using a gold gel pen.

The back is covered with lace which I have sprayed with pink Glimmer Mist.

I just saw that Sukkersøtt has a perfect challenge for me to participate in with this card, Wedding projects, challenge #46.

I hope you alle will have a great day. I am really hot here I'm sitting. I'm sure it's as hot inside my office as outdoors, which meens it's about 30 degrees. Sweat is running down my back (and some other places too :) ).

Bye for now!
Hugs, Kristin :)

Christmascard - JCBC #38

Finally, my christmascard using this week's sketch on Just Christmascard and Birthdaycard. I love this cute angel, I think it's from Anita's. I've coloured it with Twinkling H20. The ticket (text) is from KH Design, I have sprayed it with some glimmer mist. Papers from DCWV. Insides with text from Stempelglede.
The paper on the back was so nice with the candy cane so I had to place my personal stamp a bit on the side.

It was fun to make some round cards. Thanks for the sketch, Janina!

We are melting over here today. It's around 30 degrees and for me that is way to hot!! I could need an airconditioner now.
Don't forget my blogoversary candy. Tomorrow I'll announce the winner but if you haven't join you still have some time to do so!
Hugs, Kristin :)
