One More Newsprint

Hi everyone!
Thanks for dropping in. I´m just sharing another card that I made with trees as the one on the card I showed the other day, I simply made a few more because I thought they were so nice.

I like how the newsprint shows through the glitter and paint. If you want a materials list you need to look at my last post.

Thank you for stopping by!
Have a great day!

Sparkling Christmas Tree

Hi there!
A new week and it's already Tuesday today. And what a Tuesday then, it is unseasonably warm out here with me, so here the last days of October it is usually not 15 ° C degrees and sunshine. It's amazing good!:)

And what will I show you then ... a Christmas card of course:) I was inspired to use a bit of newsprint to this card, it is also newsprint as the lowest layer of the Christmas tree.

The newsprint may not appear so good because I covered it with distress inks, glossy accents and a layer of glitter ... it's Christmas and then it should sparkle. Sorry, I see now that there is a glue thread left on the photo.
That was what I had to show today, thanks for visiting!
Hugs, Birgit

A Christmas Greeting

Well hey there!
It is Friday already and I hope you look forward to the weekend, maybe is there little time for crafting:)

Today´s card uses a traditional Christmas color palette and the sweet Mimosa Flower Basket image from Bildmålarna.

I colored her with watercolors and then cut her out. I added some Stickles and Glossy Accents and placed her over a Nestabilities Beaded Ovals die cut.

The background designer papers was perfect for this card and is from Graphic 45. The flowers were made with the Small Blooming Poinsettia die from Memory Box.

I added a stamped Penny Black border round the sentiment from You Do before I cut it out. A resin swirl, a metal corner and some ribbons finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a fabulous weekend!
Hugs, Birgit

Christmas Gift Bag

Hello friends!
I´m back to share another CAS card today. I fell in love with this IO Stamps bag when I first saw it, now I have colored it with my Copics in neutral colors, gold and silver.

I added Glossy Accents and Gold Stickles to the leaves, I do not know if you can see it. I really like the simplicity of this card, which by the way is a tall and skinny one, 3,5 x 5,5".
Have a great week!
Hugs, Birgit

Star Miracle Card

So glad you could stop by today. I have a clean and simple card to share today that I made with the Memory Box Traditional Stars dies, metal tape and Stampendous Aged Silver embossing pouder.

That is what applies to the stars, of course. For the rest of the card I have used Mpress Retro Swirls embossingfolder together with Distress ink. The gold embossed sentiment is from You Do

And that's it for today. Have a great day!
Hugs to you all!

It Takes Two

Hey there!
It's raining outside my window and while I wait for it to end, I have made a little mini card. It is actually just part of a bigger stamp from Stampendous that I watercolor painted.

 I added a little 3D snow and glitter, I hope you see any of it.

Well... that was it! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs, Birgit
