Another Vintage ConfirmationCard


Happy Easter,
all crafters out there.
I’m using these days off to catch up on some confirmationcards, but I’m working sooo slow!
I’ve told you before, I’m one of those cardmakers that can sit for hours to decide where to put a flower, or which ribbons or laces to use…
But I’m having a really good time sitting with my stash ��

Here’s one of the confirmationcards I’ve made.
Vintage style with distressed papers from Pion, Kraft cardstock and laces. The flowers and the image have got a sprinkle with Stampendous Frantage Shabby White Embossing Enamel. I’ve also put on some pearlstrings and halfpearls.
The goldembossed greeting on front is made with a stamp from Kort & Godt.



The insidetext is a stamp from Papirdesign

Lemon and Lime


Hello Friends and Followers
I have made a card very inspired by the colourchallenge over at Sketchy Colors.
My immediate thought when I saw this weeks challengetheme was «this isn`t anything for me».
Yellow and Lime - No, that can’t be done!
As the days went I thought more and more of the colours, and how to make something with the colours lemon and lime.
-So I found one of my many beloved My Besties-images, DPs in the right colours and some long time forgotten ProMarkercolours, and started colouring.
Honestly; I have never used this colourcombination, so finding the ProMarkers for the image - and findig wich of them blended well together was a kind of adventure.
An adventure I think worked out rather well after som trying.  


One of the insidepanels aren’t attached yet. I always stamp the greeting onto the panel before attaching it. When I ‘m not quite sure wich greeting to use, I just leave it like this until I know which stamp to use…

The backside has also got a lime-ish coloured DP:

Vintage Confirmationcard


Good Morning To You All!
Fantastis Saturday, having the weekend off from work, 
I hope to spend many hours in my craftroom - love the thought of it; crafting - coffee, looking through your blogs, coffee, youtubevideos of cardmakingtips, more coffee, maybe a little blogging - just a couple of happydays ��

Today I want to show you another confirmationcard I’ve just made.
I’m gonna need lots of confirmationscards this year, and I still haven’t started on the boys cards yet! Feeling a little panic! 

On this card I used a digital image from a sheet I won from Scribble and Scrap a little while ago.
The papers are from Pion - love this purplepink shade!
To decorate it I’ve used a little lace, a perlstring, some flowers, leaves and halfpearls - and a couple of dies. The swirldie is from MarianneDesign, I don’t know where the one I used for the textpanel is from. The textstamp is from Kort & Godt.
On the inside I used a textstamp from Papirdesign and a swirlstamp from Inkadinkado.

Here’s the card, from different angles:



I’ll enter the card into these challenges:

Sister Act - Cards Only

Turquoise Confirmationcard


Hi Crafters

Today I have another confirmationcard to show you.
Again I’ve used DPs from Papirdesign.
I really like the turquoisecoloured papers of the year.
I have tried the CAS style again, but couldn’t resist putting a little lace on - it might be that I’m addicted to laces…
The image, one of Sherri Baldys My Besties, is coloured with Pro- and FlexMarkers.
You can find My Besties images at
Scrapbook Stamp Society
Sherri’s Etsy Store
My Besties Store
The textstamp used on the front is from Kort & Godt, the one on the inside I believe is from Papirdesign.

Even it’s CAS, all sides have to be decorated, don’t you agree… Here’s all sides of the card:



I’ll join these challenges:
