Happy Birthday

Hello everyone!
Can´t believe it, but another month has just flown by. The summer has really come here where I live now, we have been waiting a long time at the warmth this year. Today I´m back with new birthday card...

I have used some stamps and dies from Mama Elephant to create this card - Up And Away, Three Amigos with coordinating dies and also the Landscape Trio dies. I colored the images with Copics and I added Glossy Accents on the ballons for fullness and shine. I love these sweet little amigos:)
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hugs, Birgit

Birthday Card

Hi there!
Birthdays comes and goes all the time, and now it's time again to do some new cards because several people close to me are soon celebrating birthdays.

For this card I decided to try out my new Blooming Buds stamps from STAMPlorations, so I stamped the image and painted it with water colors. I also used one of sentiments that follows in the set and added a congrats die cut from Rox stamps.

I finished of with a few rhinestones for some sparkle and shine. Thanks so much for joining me, I hope you have a lovely day!
Hugs, Birgit

Christmas Star

Hi crafters!
Today I'll show you a card I did not think would be done at all. When I saw this week's inspirations card at Muse:ChristmasVisions I was almost irritated, thinking that now I skip this week. I think a Christmas card should at least be able to feel or see that it is a Christmas card, this card has summer colors and nothing more than the text that reminds of Christmas. But after a while I decided to make a card anyway but I decided to skip the colors and focus on the little that is actually Christmas (for me), the stars, the silver glitter and keep the stripes but in other colors. So this is what you get from me today ...

...hope you like it, and can get at least little Christmas feelings out of it.
Have a great day!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello crafters!
I hope you are all enjoying your week. I´m just popping in to share a card with a little fun summer theme.

It´s made with Distress inks and an image stamp from Stämpelgården. The sentiment is from Mama Elephant - up and away set. That´s it...I thought!
Okay, I forgot to mention that I painted a little silver twinklings to the fish so that it shines a little and I also added Glossy Accents to the eye.
Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Shining Stars

Hi everyone!
I finally had some time to get crafty...and I can not resist but participate in this weeks Muse:Christmas Visions challenge too:) Here is my card...

I started with the reindeer from Wild Rose Studio that I just stamped in Faded Jeans Distress ink and cut out. Next I added it with 3D foam to the background that also was made with Distress inks. I stitched around the edges with my sewing machine but without thread. Then I stamped the Inkido sentiment and white heat embossed it. I finished my card with a few bling stones.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

...I have already given this card to my dad who likes to go fishing. I used an unknown image stamp that I colored with Distress inks and a sentiment stamp from Mama Elephant - Everyday Greetings set. I finished of the card  with a little glitter Stickles.
That´s all for me today, thanks for visiting!

It´s All About The Attitude

Hello and welcome crafters!
To my card for the day I felt that I needed a sketch, and I found a good one over at Sketch Saturday which I used.

I started by coloring the image with Copic markers and then cut it down to a tag. The bottom edge was punched with a punch from Artemio. Old left over papers were used for the background and pennant.

I made the "bubbles"on the bottom right with a border die from Mama Elephant which was cut into smaller pieces.

The sentiment is actually taken from one of the stamps out of Whimsy Stamps Film Strip Sentiments set that I then trimmed a little. I also added a few bling stones.
Hope you like this card. Thanks for stopping by...have a wonderful day!
Hugs, Birgit
