Hope Your Christmas Will Be Magical

tisdag 18 juli 2017

Hello there!
I hope you all have a lovely summer! I have and that's why there's a bit longer between my posts here on the blog right now. This card is for Muse:ChristmasVisions challenge and I have had it ready for some days now, but I have not found the time to publish it until now.
I love Jessica Frost-Ballas card so I just tried to create something similar with what I have. So I used a Christmas Layered Stamps set from Studio Light to create this one together with Distress inks. The sentiment stamp is from Reprint and the die from Rox Stanps. To get a little more dimension I added Glossy Accents to some parts of the flower and the die cut.
And that´s about it, I think. Happy summer everyone!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello there!
Today I have a card for Cupcake Inspirations challenge, it has a fairly simple design.
I used a digi image from Sami Stamps that I colored up with my Copics. I painted one flower petal twice, cut out and adhered it with foam tape for dimension. I also added Glossy Accents, glitter and some rhinestones. The sentiment die is from Gummiapan.
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments!
Hugs, Birgit

A simple Card

Hello there crafting friends!
I hope you have a great summer, I have! I'm trying to squeeze in small moments of crafting now and then. Since I got some leftover material after my last project I wanted to use it too and here is what came out.

First I layered the "Flower" using foam tape for dimension, created with Docrafts X-Cut dies and some blue Distress inks. The sentiment was white heat embossed and then placed in the middle. Next I added Stampendous "Aged Silver" embossing pouder and heated in, love that stuff. For the background I used We R Memory Keepers "Gemstone" embossing folder.
Okay, I think that´s about it. Have a great day!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello Summer

fredag 7 juli 2017

Hi there crafters!
I am popping in to share a summer card, where I've also dusted off my seldom-used sewing machine.
I used old papers from Echo Park and some dies. I sewed the paper strips together and stitched it to the flower panel cut with one Docrafts die. I added leaves which was cut with two dies from Memory Box "Slender Leaves" and Fresh Foliage. In the middle I adhered a mini flower I made of vellum, small dies and a brad. For the sentiment I used a Rox Stamps die which I adhered to black foam for dimension. I finished my card with a few enamel dots.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

You Are Amazing

Hello there crafters!
I´m back to share a card for the current sketch challenge over at The Paper Players. I started with one stamp from an old Exchangeable Clear Stamper set. I stamped it twice, one with different Distress Markers, the other was first white heat embossed and then watercolored. Next I cut the embossed flowers out by hand and adhered them over the first one with foam tape, which then also was cut out. 
I then continued on and created the background using Distress inks and the "3Flourishes" stencil from Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi. For the left edge I used a Artemio border punch. Finally, I stamped and heat embossed the You Do sentiment on Vellum and added a few pearls.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello and welcome!
Today I´m sharing a card where I have used a digi image, which I colored up with my Copics and also some Distress inks for the background. I love this image, it shouts vacation and adventure. I cut it out by hand.
The sentiment stamp is from Gummiapan and I have used some dies, the "Small Flock of Doves" from Memory Box, "Stitched Scallop Basic Edges" and "Clouds" from My Favourite Things. I added some glitter Stickles and Glossy Accents as a finishing touch.
That´s all for today. As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Training Log

onsdag 21 juni 2017

Hello there crafters!
Then it was time to fix a new training diary again. Even though I nowadays log all my workouts on an online diary, I think it is still easy to use a regular paper book as a complement. And I want to fix it up a bit of course. I hope I'll be a little more sweaty than the girl on this bike though.
There must not be too many things that stand out and get in the way, because it should be grabbed many times before it is fully written. That's why it's pretty flat and simple. I used old patterned papers and a digi image that I colored up with my Copics, I also added some Glossy Accents and Stickles even if it´s not visible on the photo.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit
