You Are My Sunshine

fredag 28 juni 2013

Hi everyone!
It's been a little quiet here on the blog since I've been on a little vacation trip a few days.
I have brought with me a little summer inspiration home and made this card in yellow, green and a little sky-blue hues. I hope you like it.

It is made lika a big tag, which I folded together and then used Tim Holtz Plaque& Postage die cut on the wright side.
Then I went loose with embossing powders, various sprays, stamps and distress inks.

I cut out some images from a couple of Pion design sheets.
The black notes were made with a Die - namics die, and the sentiments in the middle are from Red Rubber design.

The film strip sentiment on the left side are from Whimsy stamps, and also cut with their die.

On the back side,  I placed a tag to write on.

I finished of the front side with a bottle cap image in a flower,
colored in seam binding and a pin.
Thank´s so much for stopping by today!
Hugs, Birgit

You Are Worth Gold

lördag 22 juni 2013

Hello friends!
I´m back today with a quick post, where I show a card that I made with the sweet Flower Fairies from Whimsy Stamps.

I really enjoyed getting my Copics out for coloring this image.
I used papers from Bildmålarna, and some other stuff from my stash.

Thanks so much for visiting. I hope you are enjoying a nice midsummer weekend, with lots of good food along with family and friends!
Hugs, Birgit

Blue, Blue Winds And Water

tisdag 18 juni 2013

Hi, blog friends!
I got so inspired when I saw that En Liten Butik was looking for a guest inspirer and that one would associate freely about Blue Blue Winds and Water.
I just couldn´t resist dipping into my stock to play around.

I found this great sailing ship on The Graphics Fairy, and a great sketch over at Sketchy Colors to play with.

I cut the image out with one Nellie Snellen die, and the sentiment from Stamping Scrapping was cut with one Shapeabilities Fancy Tags die.
I used papers from Prima Marketing The Meadow Lark collection, and from Maja Design Vintage Summer Basics.
I made an anchor of chipboard, painted in rust red and then covered with a bit of Gesso.
Almost done, after adding flowers, but something was missing. It looked a bit empty on the sides so I die cuted out a couple Latchette Borders from Memory Box and finished of with.
Wishing you a great day with pleasant summer sunshine!
Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Color Combo/Card Lift

måndag 17 juni 2013

Hi there!
Here is a card that I have lifted from Anita´s blog,
for this mounths challenge over at Ett Trykk.
And in case you´re wondering about the unusual color combination...well,
I wanted to try this weeks Stampin Royalty color was hard, I can tell you.

I found and used up some old paper, then I added sweet lace and blue lace apliques roses.
I stamped the sentiment from K-designs and then clear heat embossed it.

Okay...that´s it for my pretty simple card today.
I also enter it into the Sister Act Card challenge - Anything Goes.
Have a fun and crafty week!
Hugs, Birgit

100 Followers Of My Blog!

lördag 15 juni 2013

Hi friends!
Today I am very happy because I now have 100 followers of my blog!
What makes me extra happy is that all 100 followers have been that without a single giveaway, candy or something like that.
I hope and believe that all of my followers have become one because they like what I do:)
In the comments to my post on June 11, there were requests for how to make such a wedding dress card.
So here comes a link to Ziros blog where you also find a template for the card.

For today, I have made a Birthday tag.
I started by coloring it with Dylusions sprays. Then I covered it with a stencil and smeared over with pearlescent Paper Pen. Sorry you can not see the shimmer on the photos. I also used a white pen.

I cut out a vintage image of a bird from a Prima Marketing paper - Divine Collection.
I placed it in a wreath/nest, made with a Tim Holtz Alterations Regal Crest die, in coordinations paper that I then sanded.
I used  a stamp, and a film strip die from Whimsy Stamps for the sentiment.
The clock face was made in antique gold wax from 7gypsies.
I used Distress inks to color the seam binding, and at the bottom I adhered a couple of ribbons/lace.
That´s about it for today. Have a great weekend!
Hugs, Birgit
