Hope Your Christmas Is Magical

Hello and welcome!
When I was on the go the other day with the glass technique, I also made this Ebony motive from The Emerald Fairie Garden.

 Yes I know it's not Christmas yet, and with a different text stamp it could just as well have been an autumn inspired card but I liked to give it a different angle. I added Glossy Accents on the mushroom hat which made the vellum dented, love that shiny hat!
Thanks for stopping by!

Open Your Heart

Hello friends!
I have tried a new technique for me that I think is called "stained glass". This is my first try, and you'll probably be seeing more here on the blog later on.

I started by stamping the Magenta heart on vellum with embossing ink and then white embossed it. Then I turned on the image and painted it with Copics on the back. I used one of the dies from Spellbinders Nestabilities Golden Squares One to make the frame. Then I stitched it on a piece of black CS before I added it to my card.
I think that´s it for today...have a great weekend!
Hugs, Birgit

Little Christmas Tag

Hello there!
I´m just dropping in to share a little Christmas tag I made yesterday. It has already started to itch in the fingers after Christmas crafts:)

It may look bigger than it is, the dimensions are just 10x7,5cm and it's made with Tim Holtz Alterations Mini Cabinet Card die.

All the stamps comes from Tim Holtz Alterations Holiday Joy stamp/die set and they were heat embossed with white and clear embossing pouder. "Merry Christmas" were cut out with a Mandys die from Engströms.
That´s about it from me today. Whishing you all a happy day!
Hugs, Birgit

Condolence Card

Hello everyone!
This month's challenge over at Ett Trykk is condolence card, and I have made one.
Now I have to confess, I really struggled with this theme, as really I have no suitable stamps or supplies. This is the first card I have done with this theme, which is perhaps the best.

I have used the Borderabilities Fleur De Lis Border die from Spellbinders and the sentiment stamp is from Bildmålarna.

I can´t say I am totally happy with the final result, but here it is.
Thank you for visiting and I hope you will have a great weekend!
Hugs, Birgit

I found some other challenges for my card too:

Best Place To Be

Hello friends!
Today I have a card to share that I made when I got a little autumn feelings, and I think it shows on the card.

Here are a few quick details on my card. I started by stamping the main image from Norsk Stempelblad and then heat embossed it. Then I colored it with Distress inks pretty sloppy, because I think it fits a youthful style.

I used a Inkido stamp and a couple of Heidi Swapps text stamps.  Then I heated in a little Stampendous Aged Silver embossing pouder at the bottom, I love that...!

The leaves is left since last fall when I made a small pile of them because they are so beautiful. So I just added a couple of them from my stash together with a paperclip and nature ribbon.

And that´s about it! I hope you like the style.
Hugs, Birgit
