Season´s Greetings

Hello friends!
Here comes a vintage Christmas card with one of my oldest favorite Christmas stamps, it tends to be at least one Christmas card with this stamp every year.

The stamp is from Inkadinkado and I combined it with some old Webster Pages papers. I also used a piece of Black Magic Core´dinations cardstock that I first run through an embossing folder, then I tore and sanded it a bit.

The stamp was first heat embossed and then colored with some Distress inks. I painted the filigree metal with Gesso and then Inka Gold over the top. I used one of the Spellbinders Card Creator dies to cut the white frame out. The sentiment on top from k-designs is stamped on vellum and fasten with a rivet.
I hope you all have a nice and quiet autumn Sunday!
Hugs, Birgit

Gift Box

Welcome friends!
I have had an old box lying on the corner of my craft table for a while now where it has been waiting for its turn to be upcycled, now I finally felt ready to give it a boost...

...I found a piece of vintage paper that got me inspired. From there, it was easy to continue:)

I used some goodies from my stash to embellish the box, the sentiment stamp is from Vilda Stamps.

The heart was first cut out with  Tim Holtz Alterations Mini Heart Set in Grungepaper. Then I coated it with white Gesso and added a piece of tissuepaper before it had tryed. Then I sponged over it with Distress inks before I gave it a coat of Crackle Accents.

The box is easy to open by lifting up the front flap which is secured on the inside with a small Velcro holder. Hope you like my vintage inspired gift box. Thanks so much for dropping by today!
Hugs, Birgit

Autumn Colors

Hello everyone and welcome!
Here with me Autumn has truly arrived with fall colors and shorter days, meaning that the first rays of light comes later in the morning and the darkness comes earlier each evening.

But every season has its charm and even if the fall is not my favorite, I think the autumn colors is perfect for male cards. For this I have used a stamped image from Bildmålarna that I have colored with my Copics,

The papers are from Fabscraps and Landstoken, the round sentiment stamp from Rox Stamps and the one on the tag are from Whimsy Stamps Film Strip Sentiments Collection.

As always, many thanks for visiting my blog today, bye for now....
Hugs, Birgit

Thank You Card

Hello there!
I´m back with yet another glass technique card, and yes, I know this card has ended up in the completely wrong season:)

This time I layered the vellum over a patterned text paper, I think it turned out nicely. I tried to stick to a gentle sheer color scheme with papers from Pion Designs and stuff from my stash.

Not so much more to say about this card, I added a silver corner piece that I coated with Platina Inka Gold to make it softer.
Wishing you all a happy weekend....thanks for your visit here today!
Hugs, Birgit

Tuesday Throwdown - Butterflies and Bows

Hope Your Christmas Is Magical

Hello and welcome!
When I was on the go the other day with the glass technique, I also made this Ebony motive from The Emerald Fairie Garden.

 Yes I know it's not Christmas yet, and with a different text stamp it could just as well have been an autumn inspired card but I liked to give it a different angle. I added Glossy Accents on the mushroom hat which made the vellum dented, love that shiny hat!
Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit
