Sparkling Christmas

torsdag 28 november 2013

Hi everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by today.
My, how time flies! It's already Thursday and the first Advent weekend coming.
I'm trying to work on with my Christmas cards and here comes yet another with much sparkle in a clean and simple style

First a cut the flap with Tim Holtz Alterations Plque&Postage die cut.
Then I used Studio 490 embossing paste over a Fluorishes stencil and sprinkled over Stampendous Frantage Silver Mix glitter. I really like how it turned out.

I had a metal star that I wanted to try som Stampendous Aged Silver embossing pouder on, and it went also good I think.
I stamped the You Do sentiment and gold embossed it. I finished the front with a couple of bells, pearl string and silver twine.

For the inside I used a K-designs stamp, some old silver glittery fabric and a piece of ribbon.
That´s it for today. Thanks again for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Christmas Birds

tisdag 26 november 2013

Hello friends!
For today I have colored up this incredibly cute bird stamp from Stampendous, my heart melts.
It´s a OLC. I just added Studio 490 embossing paste to create the snow, and then sprinkled glitter over when it was still wet. It gets such great snow.

I colored the image with my Copics and the blue sky was made by Distress inks.

I have used two more stamps, the sentiment fromVilda Stamps, and the branch stamp at the top from Stampers Anonymous Mini Holidays stamp set.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs, Birgit

Christmas Greeting

fredag 22 november 2013

Hi everyone!
I´m back today with a 3D Christmas card  that I have made of an old cut out paper I have had for ages.
I apologize for the slightly dark pictures, it was very little daylight when I took them even though it was midday.

It´s a long time since I did this kind of card and I understand why, you have to cut, and cut, and cut, and cut ...

As usual, it does not show how beautifull it sparkles and glistens.

Materials list:
Stamp: Reprint
Papers: Bildmålarna-Frosty Christmas, Landstoken-Vintage Christmas
Dies: Spellbinders Shapeabilities Fancy Tags
Other: Chipboard snowflakes, Glitter, Star Dust Stickles, silver Pipe cleaner, white Berries, red Brads.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and you're welcome back any time!
Now I'll go out in the gray November light.

Wonderful Moments

tisdag 19 november 2013

Hi there!
"I wish you many wonderful moments that gives you unforgettable memories"
That´s the sentiment on this OLC card, stamped with a Inkido stamp.

I used a couple of You Do stencils with ovals to make the hills, and the shadows in the water.
For that I used Distress inks, just like for the black stripes that frame the image.
The horse were made with a Inkadinkado stamp.
Simple right, and no embellishments at all.
So that´s it for today. Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Flowers For Christmas

lördag 9 november 2013

Hello and Happy Saturday!
I´m back today with a Christmas Center Step card which has been lying half-finished on my craft table for a little while, but now it's finally finished.

The sweet image is old. I bought some that came in a small box many years ago in a craft store.

The background paper is from Panduro Die-cut-Designpapers Christmas collection.
The tags was made with Magnolia Doohickeys dies, and I also used parts of Memory Box Frostyville Wreath cut outs.

For the bow I used some seam binding topped with a brad, a couple of star pins, and some flowers.
The sentiment on the inside comes from K-designs.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Hope you have a great weekend!
Hugs, Birgit

Merry Christmas

torsdag 7 november 2013

Hi everyone!
It´s lovely to see you here. Today I have another "simple" card to show with the text Merry Christmas. And it's actually the only Christmas like with this card (which my husband pointed out) except I used a glittery paper. But it amused me a bit to use that sentiment, maybe someone (a man?) can appreciate it anyway:)

I used the sketch over at CAS on Sunday, and I´m going to enter this into the following challenges too:
C.R.A.F.T Challenge - Christmas
Simon Wednesday - Ceep It Clean and Simple
Inky Impressions - Dies and/or Punches
Crafty Sentiments Designs - For all the Guys
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes (Christmas)
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes

Hope you enjoy the rest of your week. Take care of yourselves.
Hugs, Birgit

I've become a little "bitten" by CAS, it's really fun.

I hope you like it. Thanks so much for stopping by today1
