A Greeting For Christmas

Hello happy Christmas crafters!
Or all of you crafters who are not doing Christmas cards this time of year, which might seem a little strange, I hope you are happy too. I have been inspired by Betty Wright's card for todays project, and I decided play around with the Pinecone Frame die from Memory Box.


I used it both as a stencil and the die cuts. But first I inked an embossed oval in red using the Snowfall stencil from Hot Off The Press. I cut out a couple of cones that I first dyed and then added a layer embossing paste, then I sprinkled over glitter and warmed up. I like the puffed effect it gets when embossing paste is heated.  I decided to add a K-design sentiment and heat emboss it too. The branche was made with
Tim´s Alterations Holiday Greens die.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!
Hugs, Birgit

Welcome Little Baby

Hello everyone!
Here comes the next baby's surfing into our lives, a wonderful little girl and my second grandchild. Here I have made a card for her and her parents.


I used an image from Nicecrane Designs that I colored with my Copics and then cut out with a Nestabilities Labels Four die. I used papers from Bildmålarna the Welcome - Baby Pink, they are so sweet. I then added the Memory Box Baby Script die cut and some other things from my stash.
Thanks for visiting!
I really hope you have a wonderful day!
Hugs, Bigrit

Enjoy Your Day

Hi everyone!
I hope you have a great weekend and that the sun is shining wherever you are! And now that spring and early summer is here one gets the urge to get out and start running in the beautiful nature right?


I started with a paper bag which I thought to be a good project, and an image. I colored up the image with my Copics and added it together with old papers from my stash.


I will give away a gift to a man in this bag so I tried to find the appropriate papers. Here is the backside...


Okay that´s all for me...thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Gift Box

Hi everyone!
For today I have created a sweet little gift box that I want to show you. It´s not big but it can hold a bar of chocolate, gift cards or anything else that is fairly flat.


I used papers from Maja Design the Coffee in the Arbor Paper Stack, I think they have such a lovely summer feeling. I thought that it´s possible to write a greeting on the back if you want, so I left it undecorated.


Then I cut out leaves with Memory Box Slender Leaves die and adhered them on the box along with some other stuff from my stash.



Okay that´s all for me...wishing you all a happy and creative day!
Hugs, Birgit

Merry Christmas This Year Again ...

Hello friends!
Today I have actually a Christmas cards to show you, a little early in the season maybe but I really wanted to be in the new Muse: Christmas Vision Challenge. Also, I have been struggling with the challenge, this is my second attempt with it, the first ended up in the trash.


I have used Distress inks, Tim Holtz Alterations Holiday Greens dies and a sentiment stamp from Inkido. Some gold glitter and bling finished of this card. Why is it so hard to get it right sometimes?

Whatever You Do...

Hi, and welcome to my blog!
I created this card by using a flower stamp from La Blanche that I stamped and colored twice with Copics, then I cut out the petals from the second and attached on the first image.


I used a sentiment stamp from Mama Elephant - Everyday Greetings set, and Spellbinders Garden Delight embossing folder to the background.


I finished of with a few sequins that seems to be popular right now, I've seen a lot of those now on different blogs:)
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
