A Simple Flower

Hi crafty friends!
I´m just popping in quick to share a little tag that I made to put into a bouquet of flowers with a congrats greeting. It's only 8x6 cm.

I really like how the chipboard flower turned out! First I colored it with my Copics and then I heat embossed it with clear ulta thick embossing pouder. I also used a stencil "Mini Tile Texture" from CraftersWorkshop for the background, and a part of a Svenskatextstämplar sentiment stamp.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
Hugs, Birgit

Let It Snow

Hello there crafters!
I´m popping in with a card to share for this week´s Muse:ChristmasVisions challenge!

I started with the background. I used some old Inkido snowflakes stamps that I first white heat embossed and then sponged over with a couple of blue Distress inks. Next I stamped my Reprint sentiment on vellum and heat embossed that too, then I cut it out and adhered it to the card. To hide the vellum edges I cut out a Frostyville Wreath from Memory Box. I finished of with some Stardust Stickles and blue Rhinestones to get some shimmer.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

From All Of Us

Hello there!
It's been a bit quiet from me because it has been Midsummer weekend here with me, and because it´s the biggest weekend after Christmas we celebrated the holiday and enjoyed the fantastic summer weather.

But now I´m back with a Birthday card that I made with my Copics and Stamping Bella´s Tiny Townie Birthday Party stamp. I also added some Glossy Accents to the balloons and Platinum Stickles to the hat´s balls.

I used a Gummiapan Congrats die, cut out the word several times and glued them together to create a raised look. I felt something was missing on my card...so I added stripes of dotted Washi tape to the edges and some clear sequins.
Okay that´s all for me. Wishing you all a happy day!
Hugs, Birgit

Merry Christmas

Hi there crafters!
It's Tuesday and today it´s the summer solstice, that is the day when the sun is up longest time of the year here with me, it's a wonderful time! But...here comes nevertheless a Christmas card so I´m well prepared when that time comes:)

And my muse is Cornelia Wenokor over at Muse:ChristmasVisions. For the background I used  one of the embossing folders from Sizzix Birds & Reindeer set and some Distress inks. I made the spruces using a stamp from an old reprint "Julpost" stamp set on a pair of green papers, and gold glittery cardstock. Then I cut out each green part and adhered them on the glittery with foam for some dimension. The little Copic colored Santa is from Vilda Stamps, sentiment stamp from Inkido and I used a Joy Craft speech bubble die to cut it out.
Thanks for visiting, and have a great day everyone!
Hugs, Birgit

Hi there crafters !
I´m so glad you are joining me today, as I have a birthday card to share with you which I originally planned as a shaker card, but where I regretted it and allowed it to remain open so the nice texture of the background is more visible.

I started by making the backgroumd with Distress inks, and then I made the texture with a Prima Marketing stencil and gold shimmering acrylic paint from Vivace. I then stamped the digi image, colored it up with my Copics and cut it out by hand. I also added glitter to the cake and Glossy Accents to some details.

I think you can see how the card is built up. The sentiment is stamped and white heat embossed, then cut out with a Joy Crafts speech bubble die.
Have a great day!
Hugs, Birgit

It´s A Good Day To Be Happy

Hi crafty friends!
Last school week has started before the summer holidays here, and it´s actually with mixed feelings that I look forward to the summer holidays;)

Today I have a card for Less is More and their "Splatters" challenge to share. I started off by doing some blue watercolor splatters, then I stamped the fish from Stämpelgården on my card, and also onto a separate piece of  paper. I colored the fish with my Copics, cut it out and addhered it with foam. I clear heat embossed the sentiment from Mama Elephant - Up And Away stamp set.
Okay, that´s all from me today. hope you have a lovely day whatever you´re up to!
Hugs, Birgit
