Happy New Year!

Happy New Year friends and followers!
I´m so glad you stopped by to share a bit of New Years cheer with me today! This year has been a little change for me when it comes to stamping. Somewhere a long the way, I decided to step away from a vintage romantic style card to a more clean an simple style. I think it's fun with a change but of course it will appear a few vintage cards here on the blog also in the future. This is my project for New Year...

I have used: Large Frames Plain Circles dies from Gokreate, Berry Spig die from Poppystamps, Sentiment stamp from Heidi Swapp. I think that's all that needs to be said about this card.
Blessings to you and yours for a wonderful 2015!
Hugs, Birgit

Winter Wonderland

tisdag 23 december 2014

Happy Tuesday, everyone!
Things are slowing down a bit here on the blog over Christmas, but have no worries...I'm back after the holidays.:)

For this card I used Spellbinders Impressabilities Diamons & Stars embossing folder as a stencil along with embossing paste. Glitter and Stampendous Aged Silver embossing powder was sprinkled over before it dried and then I warmed everything up with the heat gun.

Oh... I love all the glitter. The papers I used are from DCWV Winter Wonder Stack, and the reindeer got some 3D snow on his back for a really wintery look. As always, huge thanks for visiting!
I wish you a joyous and peaceful Christmas holiday!
Hugs, Birgit

Walking In The Winter Wonderland

fredag 19 december 2014

Hi everyone!
So glad you stopped by to see my card for today. It is a folded one with a stamped image from Bildmålarna that I have colored up with Copics.

For the background I used a Memory Box die with spruce trees that I added some snow on. The sentiment in the front was stamped with one of the Stampers Anonymous Mini Holidays 3 stamps and then gold heat embossed.

I also used another Memory Box Rounded Fence die to cut out the fence. The snowflakes were punched out and then adhered along with flowers, cheesecloth, pearls and Star Dust Stickles.

Back to the image, I masked it and stamped snowflakes around and at the bottom I warmed in Stampendous Shabby White embossing powder.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog today!
Hugs, Birgit

So This Is Christmas

onsdag 17 december 2014

Hi there friends!
I hope you are all doing great and enjoying the (pre) Christmas time. I have a new Christmas project to share, this time it has a wintery theme.

I started by stamping Stampendous skate stamp and color it up with my Copics. Then I cut it out and adhered it over a tag that I first had stamped and embossed with gold embossing pouder. I used a sentiment stamp from Stampers Anonymous Mini Holidays 3 set. The black and glittering beneath is actually a piece of fabric and all that is attached to vellum and silver colored cardstock.
That´s it for today. Thanks for stopping by this busy time of year!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello again!
I´m back for the second time today with one more Christmas card. Or actually this card is more wintery than Christmassy, or what do you think...

I made the base with some distress inks and spruce stamps from my stash. I used one of the minis from Stampers Anonymous Tiny Things stamp set and then crear heat embossed it. The Memory Box Pine Needle Border was stitched above and the sentiment is made with a die from Mandys.
Thank you for visiting. I wish you all a nice weekend!

Hello everyone!
This will be a quick post, I have a lot to catch up with today. Initially I actually had this card a little different in my mind but there was little adjustments in the meantime and the end result became totaly different.

I have used a stencil from Penny Black, the Frostyville Wreth die from memory Box, the Tattered Leaves die from Sissix Tim Holtz Alteration together with one embossing folder and the You Do sentiment was cut out with one of Tim Holtz Alterations Regal Crest dies.
I think that's the main thing with this card. Thanks so much for stopping by!

White Christmas

söndag 7 december 2014

Hi there!
I hope you are having a great weekend! Today I have a card in crispy white to share with you, while waiting for the snow;)

 I started with running a piece of paper through the Mpress Retro Swirls embossing folder and cut out the snowflake with a Memory Box die.

Then I stamped and heat embossed the Reprint sentiment and cut it out with one of Spellbinders Card Creator dies. The little Santa and the birds was cut out of some leftover paper scraps that I had. I completed the card with a glittering snowflake, a swirl and beautiful white satin ribbon.
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you enjoyed my card.
Hugs, Birgit

Christmas Carols

torsdag 4 december 2014

Well Hello there!
I hope you all enjoy this time until Christmas, at least I do, I love making my Christmas cards:) And for today's card, I have taken out my Copic pens and colored up this cute wintry image.

I tried to keep the decorations to a minimum so that the image would retain focus.

I used papers from last years Webster Pages A Christmas Story Collection, a sentiment from TLC and the notes were cut out with Die-namics dies. I also added Stampendous Shabby White embossing pouder and some Star Dust Stickles.
Okay that´s all for me...wishing you all a great day!
Hugs, Birgit
