Heartfelt Congratulations To The New Home

Hello there crafters!
It's not every day I make cards to persons who are moving to a new home, because people have a tendency not to move so often:) But for that very reason it was particularly pleasing to make this card.

I started by die cut the house out of a piece of paper and then use it as a stencil to make the two houses in the background. Then I used the same Memory Box Manor House die to cut the front house out of a piece of patterned paper.

I cut out a heart with Sizzix Basic Shapes die and bruched over it with red colors, I lightly shaded the edges with black and went over it with Glossy Accents for a glossy finish. The K-designs sentiment was heat embossed in copper and adhered with 3D foam and pearls.
That´s it for today! Hope you have a great weekend!
Hugs, Birgit

Baby Shaker Card

Hello crafters!
This is a new baby card for a new little girl, a granddaughter who is very dear to me:) I tried to make a rattle using Spellbinders Nestabilities Heart Circles and attaching a baby image from a Inkido cut out sheet in the background.

I filled the shaker with a few gold sequins. Then I designed the handle by free hand, cut it out and glued the pieces together. I die cut the oval behind using the Spellbinders Nestabilities Floral Ovals die, and used a bunch of pattern paper scraps from Pion Design and Inkido. On this card, I also wanted some flowers, ribbons and some bling, I want it to be sweet and cute:)
That´s it from me today, thanks for visiting my blog!
Hugs, Birgit

Christmas Greetings

Hello everyone!
Oops, Friday again ... where did the week go? Well, I don´t know but anyway, I want to share a Christmas card with you today.

I have used the Birds&Reindeer embossing folder set from Sizzix to create the background (great texture) and the reindeer.The image comes from an old cut-out sheet of paper and the sentiment was made with a Vilda Stamps stamp. I choose to cut out some white branches with Tims Holiday Greens die and added them together with flowers and berries topped with embossing paste. And then...glitter, it´s Christmas:)
Okay that´s all from me. Have a great weekend!
Hugs, Birgit

Christmas Wreath

Hello crafters!
Today I have a new card for Muse:ChristmasVisions to show you, I love Betty Wrights card so I tried to make a similar.

First I stamped a background wreath using Distress Markers and a Reprint stamp from the Julflicka set. Then I let my die cut machine work and used the Memory Box Frostyville Wreath die, Tim Holtz Alterations Holiday Greens dies, Poppy Stamps Small Blooming Poinsettia die and Mandys sentiment die. I mounted them all as shown. To finish of, I added a few pearls and a little gold glitter for sparkle.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Autumn Leaves

Hello again!
It's time for Autumn here with me, whatever one thinks about it, it´s nothing to do about. Anyway, I love those leaves...topped with Glossy Accents they get so amazing rain-drenched colors.

I used Tim Holtz Alterations Tattered Leaves die and some Distress inks to create the leaves. After they were cut out, I crumpled them together before I added the Glossy Accents. The same inks were used for the background. The sentiment is from K-designs and was white heat embossed. To finish of the card, I added a few golden sequins.
Thanks so much for your visit here on the blog today!
Hugs, Birgit

I Wish You Flowers

Hi there!
I´m just quickly stopping by to share a card I made for the latest Less is More challenge which is about One Layer cards and also have a Wishing theme. I had intended to use that particular word, but then it turned out that it didn´t fit in my tiny square. So I had to find another stamp which was better suited (Congrats), I hope it goes anyway.

I used the Blooming Buds stamp set from STAMPlorations and my Copic pens to colour up the image. Then I made a embossed frame around it using one of the Spellbinders Nestabilities Gold Squares One dies.

I think you can see the little sparkle that I added to the flowers.
Okay...that´s all from me today.
Hugs, Birgit
