Erica

Erica used the ultimate summer theme flower – the Sunflower – for this card. I love that she used the Colourful Triangle Vibe stamp, to create little green hils for the Sunflower.

Tina

That background! I mean, SWOON! Tina used the Awesome Triangle Wizard stamp as a template to create this amazing beach.

Rosali

You can almost sense how hot this dinosaur from For My Caveman is, walking in the desert. Love how Rosali used the Awesome Triangle Wizard stamp to create a scenic background too.

The Peacockness Peacock is PERFECT for summer cards. I really love the colours and hot background for this card, also using Awesome Triangle Wizard

Don’t you just feel the summer vibes now!? I hope you do 🙂

Confirmation Cards with Maria

Hello there!
In Denmark May is the big months for Confirmations. That means happy teens, garden parties, church and togetherness 🙂 (Is that a word?). It’s a big deal!

My own cousin had his Confirmation May 12 – I cannot believe he is already so big. He was my favourite little buddy when he was a kid. Of course I had to create some cards for him! Both from our family and his parents requested a card for him and his friend.

Let’s get to it 🙂

For my first card I went with a Galaxy/adventure theme. I have been on a big Galaxy spree since Rosali visited and we experimented with creating different Galaxy backgrounds with different mediums. SUPER fun!

I was inspired by a card I saw on Instagram by @Irishandcraft to combine the You Make Me Fly balloon with this cute little astronaut. And it was the perfect match for my Galaxy craze 🙂 For the text I heat embossed text from Favoritsæt (danish text stamp) in white.

This is the card I made for my cousin from his parents. It is a big card – European A5. I never make cards this big, but it was a super fun challenge and I love how it turned out.

I did the sunburst background in green Distress Inks inspired by Laura Bassen and Rosali. I used four different colours, and alternated so it fitted with the 12 rooms I randomly sketched with a ruler.

For the green “sun” I used one of my favourite and most used stamps – Colourful Triangle Vibe. The text is from Konfirmand, which is the Danish Confirmation stampset I created for this season. It is sold out for now though 🙂

My last card is a combination of the first two. The balloons from You Make Me Fly and Konfirmand stampsets are the main focal point. The church is included in stampset. This card is also a big one in European A5 size.

I love making those Distress Ink clouds, but it takes me a few tries every time. So I have some extras that need some cover-up action 🙂 I rarely throw things out, because I am a big believer in the power of recycling.

I hope you are enjoying your monday and May 🙂
I will be leaving for New York thursday morning and I am SO excited!

Tomorrow another fun Spotlight will go live ! This one is super fun and contains one of our most popular stampsets.

Hugs, Maria
