Hi everyone!
How are you today? I myself had very hard to sleep tonight because we have the Norwalk virus in this house and I imagined myself constantly that I probably was going to get sick myself, but so far it have passed me. Ok, enough of that. Here I show a card for Valentine's day with almost no heart at all.

The flowers are a digi stamp (unknown designer) that I have colored up with copics, added some Gold Stickles and then cut out by hand. I used the chalkboard technique to the sentiment from Autumn Leaves "Love With A Fluorish" stamp set. Behind it, I placed a piece of embossed leftover paper from another project. I also used one of Spellbinders Shapeabilities Floral Fluorishes dies and finished of with a few heart-shaped bling stones.
Thanks so much for visiting today!
Hugs, Birgit

Who Wants To Move In?

Hello crafters!
Today I have something different to show you, because I have been looking around in my stash and found materials to a birdhouse.

First, I painted all the parts to the house with "lemongrass" acrylic paint, then I stamped a pattern on them with a darker green color. For the roof, I used Stampendous Fran-tage embossing pouder Shabby Blue and flakes, then all the parts were glued together.

A butterfly in canvas were sprayed with some different sprays and adhered on the roof waiting for the birds to move in:) It´s fun to do something other than cards sometimes.
Thanks for visiting today!
Hugs, Birgit

Down Under

Hello there crafters!
I have a super quiet morning here at my house, the children have gone to school so it's just me and the dog, quite nice actually. I have a new card to share where I have used one of the "Silly Monsters" from Your Next Stamp.

My little monster were colored with Copics and some Glossy Accents. Dies from Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Seven was used for the book and for the sentiments I used a Mama Elephant die.
Okay that´s all for me. Wishing you all a happy day!
Hugs, Birgit

Get Well Soon !

Hi everyone!
Just a quick post from me today with a card for Stampin Royaltys Picture Inspiration challenge.

I was inspired especially by the colors but also of the stripes on the cake, although mine is not at all straight. I have used the San Marzano Border die from the Memory Box and a sentiment stamp from K-designs. The red border is made of red metal paper.
As always, thank you for visiting!
Hugs, Birgit

Welcome Baby

Hi everyone!
Today's card is as you can understand made to the little Cornelia:) 

It was love at once when I found this adorable stamp from Whipper Snapper Designs - A Blessing From Heaven, absolutely delightful and I have used my Copics to color it up...and a little Glossy Accents as usual.

A circle of vellum was die cut and attached behind the image. Next I white heat embossed her name on black cardstock and fastened it with brads.
Okay that's all from me today, thank you for the visit!
Hugs, Birgit

Hi crafty friends!
I have been invited to join the talanted designers at the Crafting By Designs weekly challenge. If you haven´t been there already make sure to visit right away - lots of amazing and inspiring projects! This week the challenge is to "Add a Flower".

For this card I used a flower stamp from STAMPlorations "Blooming Buds" set together with Mama Elephants "Up And Away" stamp set to create the scene, the sentiment are also found there.
