A Christmas Greeting

Well hey there!
It is Friday already and I hope you look forward to the weekend, maybe is there little time for crafting:)

Today´s card uses a traditional Christmas color palette and the sweet Mimosa Flower Basket image from Bildmålarna.

I colored her with watercolors and then cut her out. I added some Stickles and Glossy Accents and placed her over a Nestabilities Beaded Ovals die cut.

The background designer papers was perfect for this card and is from Graphic 45. The flowers were made with the Small Blooming Poinsettia die from Memory Box.

I added a stamped Penny Black border round the sentiment from You Do before I cut it out. A resin swirl, a metal corner and some ribbons finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a fabulous weekend!
Hugs, Birgit

Christmas Gift Bag

Hello friends!
I´m back to share another CAS card today. I fell in love with this IO Stamps bag when I first saw it, now I have colored it with my Copics in neutral colors, gold and silver.

I added Glossy Accents and Gold Stickles to the leaves, I do not know if you can see it. I really like the simplicity of this card, which by the way is a tall and skinny one, 3,5 x 5,5".
Have a great week!
Hugs, Birgit

Star Miracle Card

Hi there!
So glad you could stop by today. I have a clean and simple card to share today that I made with the Memory Box Traditional Stars dies, metal tape and Stampendous Aged Silver embossing pouder.

That is what applies to the stars, of course. For the rest of the card I have used Mpress Retro Swirls embossingfolder together with Distress ink. The gold embossed sentiment is from You Do

And that's it for today. Have a great day!
Hugs to you all!

It Takes Two

Hey there!
It's raining outside my window and while I wait for it to end, I have made a little mini card. It is actually just part of a bigger stamp from Stampendous that I watercolor painted.

 I added a little 3D snow and glitter, I hope you see any of it.

Well... that was it! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs, Birgit

Super Hero

Hello friends!
I'm back, and today I have no Christmas card to show, instead I have done something a little different...a real superhero to give hope and rescue.

I started by coloring up the stamp from Sugar Pea with my Copics and cut him out. Then I made the heart by painting a piece of paper with Gold Acrylic Colour. Then I added a stripe of piano washi tape and cut the heart out with one die from the Tim Holtz Alterations Mini Hearts set. I also added some black acrylic paint to the edges.

I used papers from the Fancy Pants Swagger paper pad and added some yellow dots to it with a Wendy Vecchi Dots&Stripes stencil and Distress ink. "Always" is also made with another Wendy Vecchi stencil called Classic Words. 

Then I cut out some leaves and added a few things from my stash to finish of the card. And that´s it!
I hope you like my superhero, myself I had a great time making him:)
Hugs, Birgit

Today I show you my second attempt using the Memory Box pinecone die, and I like this better. 
This time, I used it as a stencil and the cones became great... at least I think so.

I hope you liked my card - even if Christmas is still a little afar...;)
Thank you so much for stopping by and reading my post!
Hugs, Birgit
