Happy Easter

fredag 16 mars 2018

Hi everyone!
Today I´m sharing a card for Easter, that I created using a super cute digi image, I colored it up with my Copic pens and I also added Glossy Accents to the flower.
 The sentiment stamp is from Reprint and the grass was made with the Lawn Fawn Grass Border die. Then I amused myself by cutting out eggs and the butterfly out of a few different designer papers. As final details I added some small velor balls and a twine bow. That´s about it, I think...the front panel was raised with foam tape.
Okay, thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs, Birgit

You Light Up My Christmas

onsdag 14 mars 2018

Hello there!
Just a quick post, to pop in with a card to share. I´m playing along with the Muse:ChristmasVisions challenge, Crafty Creations - Anything Goes, Crafty Hazelnut´s Christmas - Anything Goes, Stamping Sensations - Forest Friends and Addicted to Stamps and More - Holiday.
I started with Crafter´s Companion´s Christmas Cheer stamp set and colored the image up with my Copic pens, I also added some glitter Stickles.
MFT´s Snowball stencil and Distress ink to create a soft background. I stamped the Lawn Fawn Winter Big Scripty Word in teal blue and die cut with the coordinated die, I backed it with black foam. For the bottom I used MFT´s On the Diagonal stencil together with Distress inks. I finished my card with 3D snow an a few clear sequins.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Wish You The Most Beautiful Day

Hello there crafters!
I have a card to share today, where I have used an old stamp with wonderful tulips in a row from Pysselpassion.
I masked the stamp a few times to create dimension and then I colored the tulips up with my Copic pens. I added a sentiment from Altenew "Beautiful Day" stamp set and adhered the panel with foam tape to pop it up over the paper underneath. I finished with a few clear sequins and some natural twine.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Good Morning!
Today I´ve created a card in black, white, silver and metal. That is, the butterfly is of metal that I colored with different Inka Gold colors.
I started by stamping the La Blanche flower and clear heat embossed it. Then I added Glossy Accents on the petals for a beautiful glossy effect which unfortunately is not visible on the photo. I backed the image with silver cardstock.
Next, I used the We R Memory Keepers "Gemstone" embossing folder on a piece of paper that I first colored with Distress Stain "Brushed Pewter", love that. The congratulations word was cut with a Gummiapan die and the black/white background paper was found in my way to big stash.
Thanks for joining me today!
Hugs, Birgit

It's Your Day Today!

söndag 4 mars 2018

Hello there crafters!
Today I have a card that I started a while ago and finally finished. I wanted to use some old but fun material, including the bottle caps that were so popular a few years ago and the canvas resist, which I have sprayed colored here. A little vintage inspired yet with a simple touch.
The sentiment stamp, and the Congrats die is from Gummiapan. I also used some sort of craft resist paper that I first crumpled and then flattened it and used to the background. Lace, a heart brad and enamel dots finished of. 
Okay, that's all for today I think.
Thanks for looking!
Hugs, Birgit

Hi there cardmaker friends!
Here with me, we have real winter right now, it is very cold, and it´s both blowing and snowing. Brrr... here´s a quite clean and simple card for Muse:Christmas Visions, I´ve just gone a little more bold in the background colors than Lindsey.

I die cut the Cottage from Wild Rose Studio and stamped the Kristinas Scrapbooking sentiment in black. Then I added stitches below using one Memory Box Straight Stitches die. For the background I used old Crafty Individuals paper. One single enamel dot and Platinum Stickles in the windows finished of my card.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!
Take care!

Happy Sunday Everyone!
For today´s card I have picked up my Copic pens and colored up this adorable image from House-Mouse Designs stamps, a set called "Friends Like You".
After coloring, I added grass using the "Grassy Border" die from Lawn Fawn and sponged it with green Distress inks. And in addition, I painted small dots like flowers with gel pens. The leaves at the sides were made with the Memory Box "Fresh Foliage" die. I finished of by adding a few small flowers.
That´s it for me, have a wonderful rest of the day!
Hugs, Birgit
