Take The Time To Do Nothing

Well hello there!
I hope you have a great weekend and that you can take it a bit easy, maybe not doing anything... more than crafting of course :) This is a card I made by inspiration from the sketch challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch.

I used a sentiment stamp from Rox stamps and a K-designs paper.
Okay, that´s all for me today!
Hugs, Birgit

Le Jardin

Hey there!
Today I have made a birthday card that I will give to a person that likes to cultivate in his garden so I wanted the card to have that theme. And I just love this color combination that I think is very beautiful.

The background I made myself by embossing paste that I first colored in with blue distress ink and a stencil which gave a nice texture. I also used a piece of white dry embossad paper left over from a previous project. The image was cut out from a Vintage Garden PION design paper. Over it I adhered the stamped heart with the Red Rubber Design sentiment that was cutout with a Spellbinders die. I finished my card with a pennant and a few things from my stash.
Wishing you all a happy day!
Hugs, Birgit

Happy Monday!
I have a new card to share with you today. I started by making the circle on the card with one of Nestabilities Majestic Elements dies. Then I placed a stamped image behind that was left over from making another card the other day.

Then, I stamped the Red Rubber Design bee, water colored it and cut it out. After adding some Star Dust Stickles I adhered it to my card together with thread, a feather and the sentiment.
That's it for today...thanks for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Rectangle Pull Card

Hello and welcome to my blog!
Today I have a new card to show where I have used my Karen Burniston Pop It Ups die. I have not yet really become friend with it, I must say, so I have to work a little extra to get it good.

I started by coloring the image on the front with my Copics, I used a stamp from Penny Black's Mimi's Love sets.

I also added a little Glossy Accents and Star Dust Stickles.

For the inside, I did something completely different. I took out my Distress Markers and colored in a stamp from Inkido, then I sprayed it with water and made a stamp press on watercolor paper.

I used one of the dies from Spellbinders Card Creator set to cut the image out. I attached some different butterflies in the middle that pops up when the card is opened.

I love the fluttering butterflies and mild colors on this card, It makes me long for spring...
That is it for today! I hope you all have a great weekend!
Hugs, Birgit

Transparent Window Card

Hello everyone!
Just a quick post today, I have a lot to catch up with! For over a week ago I saw a challenge over at Ett Trykk about using transparencies/acetate and now finally I have got my project done. 

So I have found a piece of an old acetate in my stash and made this window card, and it was a long time since I did this kind of window card I must say.
I used papers from PION design and a bithday sentiment stamp from Inkido.
As always, thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
Hugs, Birgit

A Flower For You

Hi everyone!
I hope you had a wonderful Valentin´s Day.  After all hearts and love, I wanted to do something completely different and this beautiful sunflower makes me think of summer and sunshine ... and I know it's coming sooner than you think.

I colored the image with my Copics and just added a little Diamond Stickles in the sunflower center.

So simple...and sweet:)
Thank you so much for visiting today!
Hugs, Birgit
