I’ve finally done what I’ve thought about for a long time. This crafty blog has moved from the subdomain creamaria.com/madeby, to it’s very own domain. Please update your bookmarks to the new blog address www.madebycreamaria.com as there’s why all updates will be made from now on.
I just read a post in another blog, where the blogger listed her favorites of what she had created during the past year. So I thought I would do the same. However, I have created less things than usual this year, and several of the cards I’ve made are pieces I’m not satisfied with. I managed to pick 10 items though. First out the letterstand I made, the rest are cards.
At this challenge at Time Out Challenges, was a wonderful card to be inspired by. Instead of kind of copy the card, I went for something completely different. I chose to pick up the cloud with hearts beneath, and went from there. The result is a colorful clean and simple card.
The card to get inspired by:
And here’s my card:
Designer paper – Sassafras
Happy Birthday rubber stamp – K-Designs
Here are my third and last tealight card and matchbox for this Christmas.I made them rather wintery than Christmassy, so the receipient (it’s a Christmas gift for a friend, together with a candle holder) can have them on her table with the candle holder not only for Christmas but for entire winter
Here’s another tealight card and matchbox. I kept these very simple and let the paper do the talking, no decorations. As mentioned in my previous post, tealight card template is from StampARTic.
A couple of weeks ago, I made this tealight card, plus decorated a matching matchbox. I found the instructions for the tealight card at StampARTic, and modified it a little bit.
Red cardstock – Bazzill Basics Paper
Designer paper – Slöjd-Detaljer Julkänsla
Washi tape – Stamperia
Organza ribbon – Slöjd-Detaljer
Plastic “window” on tealights – a plastic folder I had. Any quite sturdy plastic works.
Here’s my final card for today, with a laughing Santa. I used sketch #282 from Kortskissen, but flipped the sketch. And by the way – the snowflake washi tape is green, not brown as it looks like in the photos. And the pearls in the upper right corner are white, just as the ones in the bottom corner.
Card base – Slöjd-Detaljer
Designer papers – Melissa Frances Deck the Halls
Laughing Santa – image printed from the internet
Washi tape – Slöjd-Detaljer
Paper lace – Creativ Company
Letter stickers – Basic Grey Micro Mono Alpha
Pearls – Kaisercraft
I just realized I haven’t posted two of the ATC‘s I made last month. They were made for a swap at the Swedish yahoogroup ATC Sverige. The theme was about the group being around for ten years – it should include the number 10, and some kind of celebrating. I made them quite simple, due to lack of time and inspiration…
Designer paper (including cut out cupcake) – Basic Grey RSVP
Numbers – Basic Grey (old collection)
Dags att fira (“Time to celebrate) clear stamp – Slöjd-Detaljer
Glittery effects – Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust Clear
