Merry And Bright

tisdag 17 juli 2018

Hello there!
Popping in with a card created for Muse:ChristmasVisions, and I´m also playing along with a few more blog challenges. Kimberly is our Muse with this card...


...and here is my take on it.

I used Mimosa lights the way stamp from Bildmålarna, Copic pens and Diamond Stickles to the image, that I cut out by hand. For the card base I used We R Memory Keepers Gemstone Embossing Folder and sponged it with Distress inks. Next, I created the background using old patterned papers, Tim Holtz Alterations Snowman die set, border dies from Mama Elephant and some Star Dust Stickles. The sentiment is from MFT´s Merry Everything stamp det.  I decided to add some small wild animals which I cut from an Sizzix Forest Frame die cut.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi there crafting friends!
Today I´ve created a Birthday card for Addicted to Stamps and More, it´s their 6th Birthday and 300th challenge! In addition, birthday cards have the ability to disappear quite quickly here with me so it's time to stock up on those.
For my card I´ve used Stampendous Cling Balloon Bunny stamp that I colored up with my Copic pens, I also added Glossy Accents to the balloons for a shiny look. I cut the image out by hand and adhered it with foam tape to the background which was made with fireworks stamps from Marianne Design and some different embossing powders that I heated in. The Happy Birthday sentiment was cut out with Tim Holtz Celebrate die set. I stamped some dots with an old stamp and finished of by adding a few gold sequins.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi there!
Today I´m sharing a fun birthday card with summer theme.
For my card I used a digi image, I colored it up with my Copic pens and I also added some Glossy Accents. The Soft Caress die-cut to the left is from Penny Black and I sponged it with Distress inks. The blue stamped sentiment are from Rox Stamps. I finished of by adding the little butterfly that I found in my leftover stash box.
Wishing you a great sunny or rainy (what you want most) day!

Happy Friday Everyone!
 Finally I got some time in my craftrom, there is so much to get done this time of year it's hard to find enough time for everything. But here is a card that I made for Muse:ChristmasVisions and I´m also playing along with a few other challenges too.

I used an old Reprint tree stamp that I heat embossed in clear and white embossing pouder, then I created a blue watercolor background using Distress inks. I added some white splatters too. Next, I used border dies from Mama Elephant to create the snow in front, and for the the star I used a die set from Marianne Design. I also added some Star Dust Stickles and a bling stone for more sparkle, I love when it sparkles:) I tied a Tim Holtz metal quote around the panel and popped it with foam tape.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello there crafters!
Today I want to show a card that I made for Less is More, and their "Bits Box" Item challenge. I think it's one of the fastest cards I ever made because all the things were already there, just picking them up from my "left over/god to have" box and arranging them.
The bird is from Crafty Secrets Bird Notes stamp set.
Ok, I hope you like my project, and that you all have a great day!
Hugs, Birgit

Hi there!
Today I´m sharing a project with an Inkido swirl stamp (or what it may be called) that I have had forever but never used, now it should be used...and I did in a little different way, perhaps:)
After stamping the swirl I sponged the background with Distress inks and stamped some splatters with a small old stamp I have in my stash. Next, I made the lower edge using Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi´s Dots&Stripes Borders stencil and adhered a piece of black/white twine. For the sweet pig/butterfly I used Copic pens and My Favourite Things Sow Much Cuteness stamp set, I cut them out with the coordinating dies. The sentiment stamp is from Scrapfabriken and I created a border under it using Spellbinders Edgeabilities Classic Bracket dies. I finished my card with a few silvery star sequins.
Thanks for stopping by and have a crafty week everyone!
Hugs, Birgit

Happy Sunday!
Today I am popping in with a card to share that I created using a Lavinia stamp. I am playing along with some challenges.
 After stamping the image, I clear heat embossed it and added some colouring and shadows with my Copic pens. I stamped the Scrapfabriken sentiment to the left and cut the lower edge with a Die-namics Stitched Scallop Basic Edges die. Next, I sponged a piece of paper with Distress inks and then run it thru Mpress Retro Swirls embossing folder and sponged once more with Distress inks. Then, I die cut the panel using Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Scalloped Stackables die. I used some foam tape to pop the panel up to add dimension. I finished my card by adding some Diamond Stickles and a few gold sequins.
As always thanks so much for stopping by my blog!
Hugs, Birgit
