Window Card

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog!
I have the chance to link up my card for The Paper Players before time runs out ... I think. I have struggled with it for a few days now, and I'm still not quite satisfied.

I´ve created a card using the Mama Elephant Three Amigos stamp set and coordinating dies by creating a window in a die cut panel. I have colored the image with my Copics. I attatched the heart on the plastic to give dimension.
Have a wonderful day!
Hugs, Birgit

The Big Day

Hello crafters!
Today the time has flown away with the wind speed, so I´m just dropping in real quick to show a card that I have made for Muse:CHristmasVisions.

I used two old stamps from Inkadinkado for the tree and packages, wich was colored with Copics, I also added a little Star Dust Stickles. Even the little fellow from Mama Elephant the Up and Away set was colored with Copics and then cut out with the coordinated die. The sentiment is a mini from Heidi Swapp which I made to a signboard.
Have a wonderful day!
Hugs, Birgit

Blue Flowers

Happy Saturday!
I´m back, and I can tell you that it rains and is cold here with me today, so it's not a good summer weather at all:(  But...I have a card to share, and it´s a birthday card in blue (speaking of water).

The beautiful flowers that I colorized in blue with watercolors are from Mama Elephant called Freestyle Florals. They were cut out with coordinating dies and adhered with foam tape. The Heidi Swapp sentiment were white heat embossed on black cardstock before I added it to my card together with a few enamel dots.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Some Coffee?

Hi everyone!
I am going shabby today for The Shabby Tea Room - could not resist their inspiration picture. Coffee in the arbor is summer for me...

The border were made with one Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Border die, and the papers are of course Maja Designs Coffee in the arbor. I just added a lace heart and  some other things from my stash, the papers are so beautiful in themselves. 
Okay that´s all for me, have a great Friday!
Hugs, Birgit

Beautiful Pink And Black

Well hello there everyone!
Today I´m dropping in to share a card I created for CAS on Sunday. It´s a birthday card, and I think it´s quite elegant.

I used a bit of Stampendous Aged Silver embossing pouder for the background, that particular is amazing. The framework was made with an old Spellbinders Scalloped Edge Frame die, the dots on it were filled in with a white ZIG chalk pen. The Inkido sentiment was cut out and then stitched to a Floral Doily Motifs die cut, also from Spellbinders. The lovely Freestyle Florals were stamped and cut with Mama Elephant products and then colored with Distress inks. I added extra leaves made with the Fresh Foliage die from Memory Box to fill in the arrangement.
Okay that´s all for me...wishing you all a happy day!
Hugs, Birgit

A Summer Flower

Happy Saturday everyone!
I really can not believe it´s already Saturday...again; It feels like I can not keep up with time this summer! Speaking of summer, I think that this card has a lovely summer feeling.

I used the CAS(E) this sketch as inspiration, and a gorgeous Wendy Vecchi stencil called From The Garden on this card. Some Distress inks was used to create the image. To cut out the sentiment I used a Congrats die from Rox Stamps. To finish of the card I added a golden sequin to the flower, and that´s it!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hugs, Birgit

From Me To You

Hi everyone!
I´m back with a card for The Paper Players - it´s a color challenge...but I don´t know if I have got the colors right. Sahara sand is quite yellow / brown for me (in my head), but it seems to be gray here, hmm..but the gray is already there in the Smoky Slate, hmm...

Ok, here you have my finished card anyway. And as you see, I have also been bitten by Tim's crazy birds,  like many others...just love them:) 
My little bird is painted with watercolors. I have also used my scoring board to create the background stripes. I die cut a border with Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Border die and a "hello" with a die from Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Celebrate set. The K-designs sentiment was first stamped and then cut out with a Shapeabilities Nested Lacey Pennants die. I added the sentiment with dimensional adhesive and a metal brad, and that´s about it I think.
As always thanks for stopping by!
