Wishing Everything Good!

Hello there crafters!
Then it was Monday again, the weekend just disappeared in some way.  Anyway, I have a card to share today playing along with a couple of blog challenges.
 I used a favourite from Katzelkraft "Les rats des villes" stamp set, colored the rat with my Copics and cut it out by hand. The Gummiapan sentiment was stamped on a tag created with Spellbinders Shapeabilities "Fancy Tags Three" die set, I both cut and embossed it, and then also sponged over it a bit with Distress ink. Next, I created a big tag as background made of different old patterned papers. I adhered the rat, the sentiment and the big tag with foam tape to create some dimension. Okay.
I think that´s all for today.
Have a great Monday everyone!
Hugs, Birgit

Hi Everyone!
Today I have another card to show where I have used the wonderful flower dies from Dee´s Distinctively. This time I tried to use watercolors.
I created the background with the mpress Swirls embossing folder and the Scrapfabriken sentiment stamp. I then cut out the bow using one Craft Emotions die, colored it up and added some Glossy Accents. And that´s about it, I think.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

It's Your Day Today!

Hello there crafters!
Today I´m sharing this card where I have used some new (for me) dies, it´s about
Dee´s Distinctively flower dies and Tonic Studio´s Budding Vine die.
The flowers are amazing, I cut them out of white cardstock and then I sponged them with some different Distress inks. I also added Glossy Accents on top of the flowers. The Gummiapan sentiment was stamped in black and then oval die-cut. Next I made two scores where I could thread the flower stems through. For the background I used the Tonic die and a piece of leftover paper from my stash.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Happy Saturday!
It has been a little quiet here on my blog the last weeks due to Christmas, New Year and a death of a close relative. But I just had to post a card today, a card that I have created for my grandchild´s three-years day.
For my card, I used an old Nellie Snellen "Biking" stamp that I colored up with my Copics and cut out by hand. I also added some glitter Stickles and Glossy Accents. I created a background using watercolors and cut out the sentiment using a Gummiapan die. I finished my card by tying a little twine bow around the balloon.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy New Year everyone!
The first day of 2018 and I have made a card where I only used stamping.
I used a pair of silhouette stamps from Lavinia stamps, stamped them in black, masked them and then I went loose with a bunch of different plant /grass stamps. I kept to neutral colors and just added some sparkle. The sentiment stamp is from Scrapfabriken.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello there crafters!
The days fly away ... soon it's Christmas! I myself have created a gold glittering card for my son which has his birthday the day before Christmas Eve:)
 I hope he likes this very CAS card where I have used the Feathers stencil from Plony together with embossing paste and loose gold glitter. Two of them was cut out by hand and adhered with foam tape, as well as the stamped Kristinas Scrapbooking sentiment. I also added a Craft Emotions die cut bow, gold twine and a few gold enamel dots.
Thanks for stopping by this very busy time of year and have yourself a
Merry Christmas!

Wishing You A White And Beautiful Christmas Time

Happy Sunday!
Have you already sent your Christmas card? For me this is my last Christmas card for this year, tomorrow they will be sent with a Christmas greeting to everyone.
I started with the Sizzix Forest Frame die and backed it up with a Dixi Craft paper from Christmas Patterns/Blue paper pad. I stamped the Svenska Textstämplar sentiment in the middle and heat embossed it in silver, then I adhered it with foam tape for some dimension. Next, I die cut the Rox Stamps "God Jul" out of both silver cardstock and black foam to create the sentiment. I chose not to add a lot more details, just a few extra hearts in silver.
That´s all for today! Have a fantastic week ahead!
Hugs, Birgit
