I made my first card for the fabulous Norwegian challenge blog Sukkersött. Their design team is enormously talented and I’ve been inspired by them for a long time, but this is the first time I’m actually entering a card.

Here’s this Friday’s sketch:


I made a Welcome To The World card for a friend’s newborn baby girl.


I used a lot of Distress inks (Antique Linen, Tattered Rose, Scattered Straw) to create the background and then I sprayed a generous amount of Glimmer mist in copper on top of that.  The patterned papers from 7 Gypsies  are distressed and inked with Walnut Stain Distress ink. The corner stamp from Prima is stamped with Versacolor in Onyx Black. The sentiment is computer generated and the image is downloaded from the Internet.


The heart is cut out using a template and inked using distress inks in Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord.


I made the back side of the card very simple. The stamp around the text is Prima and the patterned paper is the same as on the cardfront, from 7 Gypsies.


papers: 7 gypsies, bazzill

stamps: Prima, unknown alphabet stamp set

inks: Distress inks, Versacolor

other: Mini Mister, nestabilities, cuttlebug, edge distresser, metal heart from Stamperia, lace from stash.

Thanks for looking!
