Take Flight

tisdag 19 september 2017

Hello friends!
I'm back and today I have a birthday card to share with you. It's quite simple, it's the background that plays the lead role so to speak. And in front of it there is an airplane that I cut out with a die from Amy Designs.
The sky was created with stamps from Marianne Design (TC0845), Distress inks and some different embossing pouders. For the sentiment I used a couple of small stamps from the Mama Elephant "Three Amigos" stamp set.
And that´s about it, I think. As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Fake It Till You Make It

söndag 17 september 2017

Hello friends!
I am sharing a card created for Inkspirational and their photo inkspiration challenge. I used one old stamp from Norsk Stempelblad "Art Journaling 5" stamp set and stamped directly on an Authentique "Irresistible" patterned paper.

I mounted the stamped panel to piece of left over paper. Then I die-cut the Moa Pyssel sentiment and added Glossy Accents for highlighting, it was also done on the stars of the dress even if it´s not visible on the photo. I finished the card by adding some silvery star sequins.
Okay, that´s all for today. Hope you have a great weekend!
Hugs, Birgit

Hi there!
Today I´m sharing a Christmas card inspired by Kimberly´s card over at Muse:ChristmasVisions. Here is a lot of gold, glitter and many layers.
I used an old Inkadinkadoo stamp that I first gold embossed, then cut out by hand. Next, I added a layer Glossy Accents and round the edges Platinum Stickles. I stamped and gold embossed the Lawn Fawn "Winter Big Scripty Words" sentiment and cut it out with the coordinated die. I die-cut the Holly edge using Tim Holtz Alterations "Boughs of Holly" out of gold card stock as well as the Craft Emotions bow. Then it was time to put this together and in the background I chose to use a piece of vellum with gold swirls, then I assembled all parts with foam tape for dimension. I also threaded a ribbon through the ornament's bracket and finished of with a gold bling stone on the bow.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs, Birgit

It's Your Day Today!

Hi there!
Today I´m joining along with the Cupcake Inspirations challenge. Here´s my sample for the challenge.
First I used Distress inks and stamped the flowers from Docraft "Trad Floral" stamp set, heat embossed them and then applied more watercolor. Next, I used a "Mini Tile Texture" stencil from Crafters Workshop to create the background. I stamped the Gummiapan sentiment in black and clear heat embossed it too. I made a frame using a couple of dies and adhered it with foam tape. To finish, I added a few enamel dots and pearls.
Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you have a great day!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello there crafters!
Here's another quick post ... this time with an OLC card for Less is more - Colouring In challenge, where I used one of the lovely stamps from Katzelkraft's "Les Jungles" stamp set and my Copic pens. I also used the sketch over at Sketch Saturday as inspiration.
I used a sentiment stamp from the MFT "Sow Much Cutiness" set.
Okay, that´s all for me. Wishing everyone a happy day!
Hugs, Birgit

You Light Up My Life

Hi everyone!
Just a quick post - I got my hands on an embossing rose from Avec Cards Unlimited and wanted to try it immediately, this is what came out.
 After embossing, I sponged the rose with Distress inks, then I adhered lace to the edges. The sentiment from Scrapfabriken was stamped and heat embossed in Victorian Velvet ink, then adhered with foam tape. I finished of with a gray pearl.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
Hugs, Birgit

For You

tisdag 5 september 2017

Hello there crafters!
I have created yet another vintage style card, it's best to catch the inspiration when it comes. I really like the colors here, the brown is doing so well with the green color shades and I love it!
 I used some old papers including from Pinkpaislee "Hope Chest" paper pack and a vintage image with unknown designer. I die cut a frame using Spellbinders Nestabilities Lacy Squares and Die-namics Inside & Out Diagonal Stitched Square dies. I've had that sweet lace heart in my stash for ages, at last it came to use:) I decided to color up the Lawn Fawn "Scripty For You"die-cut sentiment with a bit of rusty red hues, using Distress inks to break of. I finished of with a few bling stones.
I hope you like it. Thanks again for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello and Happy Saturday!
We are now in September and the summer may be officially over...it feels a little bit sad in fact. I'm trying to enjoy the nice days that still remain. I feel a bit nostalgic and have made a couple of vintage inspired cards, this is the first.
I have used some old papers and images from my way too big stash. The angel was cut out by hand and then I stitched it together with some cheesecloth to the card. The sentiment is from Rox Stamps, I made a frame to it using Spellbinders Nestabilities Large Labels dies. I tried not to overwork this time without holding back the embellishments a bit. Okay. I don´t think I need to say so much more about this.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great weekend!
Hugs, Birgit
