Valentine Card

söndag 30 januari 2011

Here we have a wonderful winter weather today, and I'll go skiing later today.
I hope the sun shines on you too.
My card today is for Valentines.
Many photos, but I hope you want  to see them all.
And I've tried on a new tutorial (for me), which looks like this ....

I've used a paper from Pysselgumman - Från Mitt Hjärta,
and stamped the tree branch with a stamp from Bildmålarna.

I just love those wonderful pigeons that comes with love letters
to their friends up in the tree.
And the Tag....

I have used Copics and Distress Inks.
The heart has been given a treatment with Crackle accents.

Lovely flowers from different places,
but has ended up in my stash:)

There are several challenges now on the theme Valentine's/Love.
For example at Delightful Challenges - Have A Heart
Charisma Cardz - Valentines/Love
and last but not least Totally Gorjuss - As YOU Like It,
because i Love this birds, and the houses in the tree, and it´s vintage too.
Crazy 4 Challenges wants to see cards about the theme "Vintage or Shabby Chic". Perfect for me, and my card.

Hugs, Birgit

Hello everybody! How are you? Just good, I hope.
They have a great theme this week on Top Tip Thuesday - Fabulous Flowers.
And I knew that I wanted to do my own flower this time, so I did.

which I have stamped on with a text stamp.
Then I've put together the flower and added a little Stickles.
And over at Cupcake Craft Challenge this weeks Challenge is "Food for Thougts".
have placed my flower on a box that I've done,
and I shall I fill it with something good. Yummy....
They may lose weight at any other time.

The stamp is from Bildmålarna.
The papers are from Prima Marketing - "Pastiche Collection, Love letter"

I've also thought to participate in the Challenge over at Kreative Stempelfreunde,
their theme this week is "Shapes", (and i have used my spellbinder.)

because I love to do anything but just cards, (although it is fun too)

First, I must tell you, that to my great joy I have been choosen to No.1 at Kreative Stempelfreunde, in last week's challenge, "Winter". Tjohooo.....
It's so great to know that there are a few more out there who likes what I create.
And it fits just so good now that the snow lies deep and white, so here is a new card on the theme of "Winter Wonderland" that they want to see at The Shabby Tea Room this week.
 And to the Challenge at Fluorishes Timeless Tuesday they want you to ad some kind of hardware to your card/project.
I used a silver heart on my card.
I used the sketch at Card Patterns, but I turned it upside down. I hope thats OK.

Fairy Tales

måndag 24 januari 2011

Hello, and welcome back. I think it's time to show you a new creation of me.
Once again, I´ve used the nice papers from Maja Design "Ska vi ta en fika".
I found the great sketch over at the Challenge of The Sweet Stop Sketches, and at the Challenge of  the Wags´n Whiskers Stamps the theme is called "A Fairy Special Challenge".
The team of the Challenge from the Phindy´s Place would like to see creations with "Lace and Pearls".
And at Papertake Weekly they have a nice theme which is "Ribbons & Pearls".
So I chose the stamp with the fairy from The Greeting Farm, and colored her.

All the embellishments are from my stash.

Have a wonderful week and thanks for swinging by today.
Hugs, Birgit.

Something with wings

torsdag 20 januari 2011

Hi there, hope you are fine.
This is my latest card, which i actually made for Crafty Creations Challenge.
But I had probably not been looking properly, because the card should be green, ha ha....
But there are a number of other challenges,
and i have used the sketch at Mojo Monday for my card.

At Crafty Creations, they wanted to see birds.
But I could not find a single bird anywhere. So I looked in the computers clipart program and found this beautiful bird.

I made the card pretty simple. It feels like the sky, the sea and freedom.
I also wrote out the sentiment on the computer.

Papers - Maja Design "Sommartider"

I want to participate in the following challenges:
Stampin´ Royalty - Anything With Wings
Pear Tree Designs - Free For All
Top Tip Tuesday - All Sentimental
Wild Orchid Challenges - Lets Get Sentimental

Greetings from Birgit, Hugs.
