Good Luck In Life

Hello and thanks for dropping by!
I´m just sharing one more card I have made for my grandson to his christening...he fills my heart with love.


I used papers from Authentique, the Renew Collection, which I think fits great for a little guy. The big heart was made with dies from Spellbinders, and for the white one under the sentiment I used the Soft Caress die from Penny Black.


I don´t think I need to say more about this card, I show the inside...
Hugs, Birgit

So Cute...

Hello everyone!
Today I want to share a card with a real sweetie who will be baptized this weekend. It is my grandson and you will see both him and more baby cards here in the coming days.


First I started by die cuting out paper strips with Mama Elephant edge dies, and then layering them to a card. Then I used the Memory Box Baby Script die for the sentiment.


One of the Three Amigos from Mama Elephant stamp set was cut out with the coordinating die and added to my card with 3D foam.


Okay, that´s all for me...I hope you have a lovely spring day!
Hugs, Birgit

It´s All Good

Hello friends!
There will be just a quick post here on the blog today to show my latest project, a card in the CAS style where I got the inspiration from a couple of challenges.


I have used Copics to color the flower that were stamped with Mama Elephant - Freestyle Florals stamps and then cut out with the matching die. I also used an Mama Elephant stamp for the sentiment- Everyday Greetings, the oval around the text were stamped with an old StampingScrapping Fancy Accent stamp. The background was made with Stampendous Old Silver embossing pouder and Gold flakes. I cut out some Poppy Stamps Berry Spig and Memory Box Slender Leaves and used some Distress ink on the leaf tops.
I wish you a nice weekend!
Hugs, Birgit

Welcome Baby

Hello there!
I have created a card for a newborn baby, it's always exciting to see a newbie for the first time. Who is she / he most like ... mom or dad? Well, of course, just himself! I chose to make my card in soft colors with flowers reminiscent of spring, the season in which the boy is born.


For my card I have used lovely old glittery (as usual, it appears badly on the photo) Best Creation papers. The bird with the boy was cut out from a PION design paper, and the rest was made with help from som dies: Memory Box -Baby, Spellbinders - Nestabilities Labels Four, Spellbinders - Shapeabilities Nested Lacey Pennants. Okay, that´s all for me today.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Wonderful In Every Way

Hello and welcome!
I´m so glad you have stopped by today to see my new sunny flower card. I think it's so much fun right now to use water colors, and to flowers they are extra fine for the possibility of obtain such fine natural shades with them.


The flowers were stamped with the Freestyle Florals stamp set and cut the matching dies from Mama Elephant, After using a text stamp from the Everyday Greetings stamp set I finished of with just adding some gold glitter and some brown "grass".
Once again, thank you for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

This Makes Me Smile

Hello friends!
I'm back again after a short Easter break where I have had much pleasure from loved ones, I hope you too have had a pleasant time off with friends and family.


For today's card, I have painted a Prima Everyday Vintage Paintables motif with watercolors. Then I sprinkled over thick clear UTEE embossing powder and heated in. After it had hardened I broke the image so it got cracks in it so it looks like cracked glass. Then I cut the image into nine pieces.


The background was made using old papers and different things from my stash. The border at the top of the green paper was made with Tim Holtz Alterations Plaque & Posters die. I think that was it.
Have a great week!
Hugs, Birgit

Egg-stra Easter Card

Hello there!
I hope you have a warm spring weather where you are....it's not here with me where I live, it is quite cold and it even snowed / rained a little today. This will be my last Easter card this year and I wanted to make it egg-shaped, so it is oval.


I used my Copics to color the image, then I cut it out and mounted it with 3 D foam.


I made a background using dotted washi tape and a die cut square frame made with a Spellbinder die. The sentiment on the little tag is from Panduro and I also added a few more Easter-inspired items from my stash. That´s it. Thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy Easter to you all!
Hugs, Birgit
