Used materiel:
Sentiment stamp - Inkido, Tulips stamp - Pysselpassion, Grass stamp - Unknown, Butterfly stamp - Inkido, Rond stamp - Bildmålarna, Stripe Border stencil - Wendy Vecchi, Distress Markers and one black pearl.

Spring Butterflies Have Landed

Hi there!
 Think how much two tissue napkins can be used for. I've already made an Easter egg and a card (which I already showed here on the blog), and here comes a candle where I attached the napkins with light lacquer on the candle.

I attached some of the napkin on white cardstock, then I put metal tape on the back and then cut-out butterflies which I bent, and mount with needles on the candle.

At the bottom of the candle I decorated with flowers, natural twine, paper and lace.

That's all for today, hope you have a great week!
Hugs, Birgit

Carpe Diem

Hello there!
I am back again to show a card I actually got to work a little extra on. It may sound a bit strange when you see it, but sometimes it is so that the end result not at all becomes as planned from the beginning. This card I have had to leave and return to several times.

From the beginning, I tried to do a very simple card. But in the end, it has become a Spring inspired card where I have tried to create a scene with children sitting on the fence among trees and butterflies in the park / garden, looking in to the city.

I colored the stamped images from Bildmålarna with my Copics and cut them out. I used 3D foam to create dimension and placed them on the fence made with Tim Holtz Alterations die. I also used a Forest stencil from Clearscraps and the Classic Words stencil from Wendy Vecchi. Some stamps from Inkido(sentiment), Reprint(Eifel Tower), Stampers Anonymous(hot air balloon) was used together with butterflies from a paper napkin that I first glued onto a cardstock with decoupage coating and then cut out. Okay...I finished of my card with a beautiful old metal button in the bottom left corner.
Wishing you all a happy day!
Hugs, Birgit

You Are Somebody´s Reason To Smile

Hi, and welcome to my blog!
Today I have made a card inspired by the color theme challenge at StampARTic. And I have used the chalkboard technique together with one of the Smile sentiments from Kaisercraft, crown from Red Rubber Design and the swirl are from Vilda Stamps.

Once that was done, I adhered it over some fabulous papers from Authentique - Lovely collection. 

Flowers and other things was found in my nowadays quite large stash:)

For the inside, I made a matching chalkboard sentiment.

It was really fun to make a card without a image as the focus point, it feels like it was quite a while ago.
Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting today.
Have a great rest of the week everyone!
Hugs, Birgit
