Pocket Tag

Hello everyone!
Today I have a fairly simple pocket tag to display. First I stamped some text as a background and covered it partially with white dots of embossing paste.

Then I painted a chipboard flower from Tando Creative with Distress inks and heated in some thick clear embossing powder so it looks like dew drops, love it:)

 I also added a little stamped Heidi Swapp sentiment and a few things/die cuts from my stash.

I used some different old stamps and inks for the tag and finished of with a couple of Tims Chitchat words.
Thanks so much for your visit here on my blog today!
Hugs, Birgit

Case A DT Card

Hey there everyone!
Today I´m sharing a very special card for's my first shaker cards ever:) The one who got me to try it out is DT Sarah over at Less is More, here is her lovely card...

...and here´s mine.

Besides that there is a shaker card, I have focused on the theme of love. I started with the dry embossing that was made with one of the folders from Sizzix Scallop Heart Doily Set. Next I punched out the hole and added distress ink to the flowers. The hearts inside the plastic was made with a homemade stencil. And finally, the sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps Film Srip set.
And that´s it, friends. Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hugs, Birgit

Happy Easter

Hi, and welcome back!
Today I have a clean and simple card to show you. I wanted to make an Easter card for the upcoming Easter holiday so I needed some inspiration and found it at this week's CAS (E) this Sketch Challenge.

First the shipboard bird got a layer with black embossing powder that was heated in, then it received another layer of thick clear embossing powder for a shiny look. I embossed the background paper with a Cuttelbug embossing folder and cut out the eggs with a standard oval die. Sentiment from Panduro.
That´s it I think...have a nice day!
Hugs, Birgit

A Small Gift Box

Hi there!
I hope you are having a great weekend! Today I have a new project to share where I have recycled a box.

I did a background of metal tape, black acrylic color and Tim Holtz Alterations Texture Fades embossing folders.

 It was a little tricky to make the frames but it went with the help of Tim Holtz Alterations Plaque & Postage die and another square die. I painted them with light green acrylic paint and black Distress Ink.

There is a lady cut out from a Reprint paper and some other old stuff and papers from my stash.

I attached a metal knob on each side of the box so it can be opened in both directions.

Okay, I hope you like my little project. Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hugs, Birgit

Spring Sunshine

Hello evereyone!
For today I have made a joyfold card and it is the first time for me with that folding technique...and it was fun:) I will do it again.

Right now I really like using watercolors so I started by making the image and to it I used the Wendy Vecchi From The Garden stencil and Distress inks.

Next I used beautiful yellow papers from the old Papermania Lemon Sorbet paper pack. Love the yellow shades!

I took out the Frensh Foliage die from Memory Box, cut and colored it with Distress ink. The little sentiment on the front was made with a Heidi Swapp mini stamp.

I also added ribbon and a Freckled Fawn paper clip. On the inside i adhered a quote that I wrote on my old fun.
And that´s it friends. Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hugs, Birgit

Dance, Sing and Smile

Hi friends!
I believe we all have a whole pile of papers lying that we think are so beautiful or have something special that we barely want to hide them behind a lot of decorations. Here is one of them,  when I saw the challenge over at Ett Trykk a week ago about rapid/simple cards I immediately thought of using one of these for a card.

Quickly done and it's ok for a man...I think. I used the K-designs Take my picture - Photo paper and the Smile stamp from Kaiserkraft. Around the edges I heated in Aged Silver embossing pouder from Stampendous. I used a bling stone just to add some nice extra element.
 That´s it...thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hugs, Birgit

Get Well

Hey there!
I´m back to share a card made with this weeks sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch. I have already seen a lot of amazing contributions on the challenge blog, but I will still add my project too.

I'm a little hooked on watercolors right now so it became an image made with watercolors, old Prima Marketing stamps and a K-designs sentiment stamp. I made a frame by simply cutting out a frame from the image and mount it with 3D foam.
Okay that´s all for me...
Hugs. Birgit
