This Is...The Big Day

Hello there!
I have a little guy in my vicinity who are six years old in a couple of days and that is something he is really looking forward to:) So now I have made ​​a card for him which I hope he will like.

I colored up a digi image (it can be from"The Crafting Dragon" but I´m not sure) with my Copics and then I stamped the Heidi Swapp sentiments beside the dragon. Then I cut it out with Nestabilities Labels Eleven.

I layered the image over some old Shimmer Flocked Paper that I found in my stash and die cuts made with Spellbinders Card creator dies.

Some other small decorations were also used along with a congratulations stamp from You Do.
Thanks so much for stopping by today... I know everyone has so much else to do this time of year...
Hugs, Birgit

Imagination Is The Art Of Seeing What Is Not There

Hi everyone!
Today I have a card to show that I've done to my father in law for his birthday in a few days. It's always difficult with male cards, and this one I wanted to do a little more fun and not so gloomy...

I used papers from Prima "The Optimist" Collection and Marion Smith Designs Mad Tea Party "Cut & Create".

All stamps that I have used are heat embossed with white embossing pouder. The one on front is from Slöjd-Detaljer and the other on the inside is from Bildmålarna (Today you should be celebrated), Stämpelkällan (Congratulations on your day) and K-designs (Did anyone said Cake?).

I stitched down a pennant of vellum that I first stamped "hugs" on, and then I added some more fun things that I found in my stash.

That's it for today...thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
Hugs, Birgit

Entered Challenges:
As You Like It - Favourite Sentiment (Did anyone said Cake? I love that one...:))

Fingerprint Flower

Hi everyone!
I'm back after a short holiday week with plenty of sunshine... Once back home, I surfed around a bit among challenges and blogs, and then I got stuck on the challenge over at "Less is More" - Adapt a Fingerprint.
So here I have made ​​a mini card with the dimensions 11x7cm. I have used three different Distress ink colors along with the ring finger and the little finger to make the flower.

Next I colored green with a water brush, and then I used some of the mini stamps from Heidi Swapp for the flower center and the sentiment.
That´s it for today, have a great summerweek!
Hugs, Birgit

Wags´n Whiskers - Anything Goes

Summer Heat

Hello there!
It's a new challenge over at Frilly and Funkie where they want to see warm summer colors and even include a summer flower. Sunshine yellow is otherwise not a color I usually associate with the vintage style and I do not think I succeeded with that either. 

But it turned out quite nice though, and I associate the flower with those old shower sponges they used before, so I thought it fit so well here in my beach theme.

I colored my digi image with my Copics and cut it out with one Nestabilities Labels Ten die. The sand was made with Stampendous Shabby White embossing pouder and Fragments. A postage stamp (with the Swedish mountains, ha, ha ...) may symbolize that you usually send cards on your vacation to friends and family.

 For the frame I used one Spellbinders Card Creator die. Lovely "Hello Summer" papers from Echo Park was used for the background. Okay...that´s all for me...wishing you all a happy and enjoyable summer!
Hugs, Birgit

From Me to You

Hello there!
Yesterday I saw the new sketch over at CAS (E) this Sketch and immediately I got an idea with a butterfly, but I might have pushed a little too much on the sketch ....I don´t know?

To create the butterfly I used two dies from Memory Box "Cloe Butterfly" and "Tristan Butterly". And for the heart I used one of the embossingfolders from the Sizzix Scallop Heart Doily Set.

I stamped the K-design sentiment on vellum and cut it out with Tim Holtz Alterations Regal Crest die.
Hope you like it. Hava a great day!
Hugs, Birgit

Entered Challenges:
Deep Ocean - Add a Sentiment
Stampin Royalty - Keep It Simple
