Christmas Is A Magical Time

Hello crafters!
I hope you´re having a wonderful weekend. Myself I wait for my children to come and celebrate me on Mother's Day, if they haven´t been forgotten about it. Anyway, I took the opportunity to celebrate my own mom yesterday.

I´m participating in Muse:ChristmasVisions this week too, with this card. I was looking for a reindeer that I have not used that much and found this from Sizzix embossing folders  Birds & Reindeer Set. After the dry embossing I first put on a layer of black embossing powder and then a layer of clear embossing powder for a realy raised look. Then I created the background with Distress inks in a similar way as Stephanie, and 3D snow. The Vilda Stamps sentiment is also heat embossed. I naturally want it to sparkle a bit on my card too, so the reindeer's back and horns got some Star Dust Stickles on...and a ren nose of course.
Thank you so much for stopping by today!
Hugs, Birgit

Its Your Day Today!

Hello there crafters!
It's Mother's Day on Sunday and I have made a card for her that also includes a big hug! I used Mama Elephant- Freestyle Florals stamps with coordinated dies and colored with Copics.

I used a "Hug" die, and a sentiment stamp from Gummiapan. Ok, I think that´s about it.
Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a great day!
Hugs, Birgit

For A Special Person On A Special Day

Hello crafters!
It really has quickly gone from spring to summer here with me, all of a sudden it is very hot for the season, and all the flowers are in bloom at once. It is difficult to find time to enjoy all the beauty of nature. But here I caught some peonies using Alternews "Beautiful Day" stamp sets.

I used Distress inks and some Copic pens for the shadings. The K-designs sentiment is stamped in black and then clear heat embossed. I used a ScrapBerrys stencil for the blue dots. and finally, I added a piece laser cut border and some bling stones.
Okay that´s all for me. Wishing you a all lovely day!
Hugs, Birgit

Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year

Hi everyone!
Today I share a card for Muse:ChristmasVisions, I have kept the card's design, the brown color and the dots which I thought was nice. However, I changed out the snowflake against a wreath...

... but to reconnect to the snowflake I let it sparkle with bling stones and glitter. I used some patterned paper from Basic Grey, the CR1327 die from Marianne Design to create the sentiment and a Panduro stamp for the wreath. 

Since I also want to link up with the Creative Knockouts Finish The Inside challenge, I show it.
I used the same colors to the K-designs sentiment as to the wreath and the same paper.
As always thanks for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello crafters!
Today I have another wedding card to show you, a true romantic one...aren´t they cute?

I decided to use the "Bird Swing" stamp from Whimsy Stamps and give it the focus of my card by placing it in a frame made with Die-namics Inside/Out Stitch Ovals dies. I colored the image with Copics and I also added Glossy Accents to the flowers. I used a linen cardstock that is a little creamy white, which I think is very beautiful. The sentiment stamp is from You Do. I also used the Penny Black "Soft Caress" die and the "Fresh Foliage" die from Memory Box.
Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a great day!
Hugs, Birgit

Winter Landscape

Hello there crafters!
I´m baaaaack! With a new card for Muse:ChristmasVisions, the original...

....and this is my card.

For my card, I wanted a little bit stronger and Christmassy colors, and for the same reason I wanted to keep the hare / rabbit, otherwise I think the card becomes uninteresting in any way. I used some different spruce stamps and heat embossed them with "Bridal" pouder for a glittery look. Next, I made the background with watercolors and cut out the sentiment with a Mandy´s die. Just as Chriss I backed it but not with foam but with several layers die cuts out of black cardstock. I made the hare from Marianne Design (CR1340) the same way. I finished my card with a few clear sequins.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Wedding Card

Hello crafting friends!
Today I have a wedding card to show, there are many who take the opportunity to marry in the spring and summer, and now I have got reason to make a couple of cards which is always great fun.

On the first, as I show here, it´s a bit difficult to see the amazing paper that shimmers beautifully in cream / gold (I saved it in my stash for years). It´s classic and elegant with hearts that I cut out with Spellbinders dies and where the upper heart is embossed with dots. I also cut out the leaves with the Memory Box "Fresh Foliage" die out of grey cardstock. I used K-design stamps for the sentiment and clear heat embossed it. I also added flowers and clear sequins to bling it up.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Hugs, Birgit
