Bike card

One of my colleagues, who's also a spinning instructor on one of our teams, has unfortunately decided to quit, since she got a new job. The people from her Tuesday class (me among others) decided to get her a farewell basket with some goodies, and I made a card for her as well. This is probably the closest I get to make CAS cards, since I usually decorate them more. Here is the card:
I have used grey, pink and white cardstock plus paper from Lemoncrafts "Daydream" collection. I think the picture is from Google, the squares are cut with Matting basics 6x6 from Spellbinders, the frame is a die from China, and the bike is from DixiCraft. The card is decorated with grey and pink halfpearls.

Golden anniversary card

A colleague of mine asked me if I could make a card for his parents who had been married for 50 years, here that is called gold wedding anniversary. Only request was that there was a prison theme, since the present was a stay in a former prison, which has been turned into a hotel.
I used papers from Maja Designs "Vintage Romance" collection, white and gold cardstock. The image I found on Google. I used the following dies: Sue Wilson - frame from "Happily ever after", Nellie Snellen "Guldbryllup" and Joy Crafts 6002/0252.

Silver anniversary card

My colleague Allan and his wife just celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary (aka silver anniversary) last week. Of course they were getting a present from us, his colleagues, and I made this card for them:
I used paper from "Crelando" (found it at a Lidl grocery store), white and silver cardstock. The dies are from Joy Crafts (6002/0252), Sue Wilson (frame from Happily Ever After) and an alphabet and number die from a Die Cutting Essentials magazine.
The picture is from Pion Design and flowers are from WOC.

Family layout

Recently I made a layout with a picture of my husband together with his siblings and his mom. It was taken on my husband and his twin sister's birthday several years ago. Here is the layout:
I really had fun making this layout and I am very happy with how it turned out. I used papers from Maja Design ("Worn Indigo" from the Denim & Friends collection and "Stark och Fri" from the Crea Diem collection + a piece from the 6x6 Denim & Friends paper pad). The paper was first covered with clear gesso and when that dried I added some white gesso all around the edge of the papers. I used a stencil from TCW called "Mini sketch grid" and added some modelling paste. The ornaments chipboard pieces are from Scrapek and covered with white gesso and a Lindys Stamp Gang spray - Flat Fabio Kissin Kenickie Coral. The chipboard letters are from Craft Emotion and covered with My Mojito green from Lindys Stamp Gang. Flowers are from WOC and China. Buttons, butterflies, jewellery pieces and art stones are from my stash. Here are some close-ups:

Card for Sofie

My colleague Sofie finished her education as a media graphics last week, so I was asked to make her a card to go with the present. I choose to make a very feminine card since that is what I love. I used pink paper and paper from Maja Designs "Crea Diem" collection. I have used dies from Spellbinders - Matting basics 6x6, Card Making Magic - banner, China die - leafs on branch and the square in the middle. Chipboard is "Wild flowers #3" from Dusty Attic and they are painted with white gesso and decorated with Liquid Pearls - Ballerina. Flowers are homemade foamiran and flowers from WOC. Other decorations are halfpearls, buttons and ribbon. The text is printed on white cardstock. Here is the card:
For the foamiran flowers I used dies from Nellie Snellen. I used white foamiran and colored them with some old Pergamano pastels in 2 different blue shades. With this card I participate in Scrap and Crafts June challenge - DIY flowers.

Birthday card for my Godmother

Well, it's hot in Denmark and has been for over a month now, which is very unusual, but I am loving it. Only problem is that I don't feel like being inside and scrapping, so it's a good thing that I have a lot of cards which I haven't blogged about yet.

This card I made for my Godmother and it is a very summer like card in my opinion, which I knew she would like. Here's the card:
Papers are from Maja Designs "Summertime" collection and red cardstock. I used dies from Spellbinders "Matting basics 6x6", Dixicraft  (letters and numbers) and a die from China. The tags are fussy cut from the same Maja Design collection. All the flowers are from WOC, halfpearls and ribbon are from my stash.
