Tulips once again

tisdag 22 februari 2011

Hi, this is going to be a quick post.
I am back with another try for Less is More,  and by that I mean a try of this "clean and simple" technique.
I used the sweet tulips once again because the theme is "Spring".
They look great on my card, and I coloured them with copics and a little Twinklings.
If you look properly, it may appear that the flowers have little clear embossingpowder on themselves.
I hope it can be seen in the pictures.
The card is suitable for someone's birthday this Spring time, and even for Timeless Tuesdays challenge "Birthday Card".
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Birthday Whishes

Hope you like it and thanks for looking!
Hugs, Birgit.

I realy liked it, and the sentiment is from Create whith TLC.
At Phindy´s Place the theme is "Spring is on the way", and I do agree. So I used the lovely colored papers from Pion Design - Sagan om våren" and Maja Design "Ska vi ta en fika".

onsdag 16 februari 2011

As I told you yesterday, I'll soon be back again.
Here I am with something totaly different. Over at The Shabby Tea Room they have a theme this week of "Keeping Warm". And what fits better this season when it´s cold and winter outside.
I have used my teddybears once again (you´ve seen them before).
Today, they have crawled into this pocket to keep warm and cosy.

And they can come up just when they want ...

Stamp: Suzys Zoo
Sentiment: Create with TLC
Papers: Cs, Prima Marketing - Pastiche Collection
Flowers and Bling: From my stash

I also want to participate in the challenge over at Tuesday Throwdown where
you have to incorporate a pocket into your artwork.

Simple Flower

tisdag 15 februari 2011

Welcome friends!
Happy to see you back.
It´s time to make a one layer card, with a theme of a Flower or a Tree,
 at Less Is More this week.
Unfortunately, I have no tree stamps, so it had to be one simple flower.

I could not resist this beautiful flowers to the inside.

It´s very simple this card i know, hope you like it anyhow.
This card is also for Saturday Challenge - A Stamped Flower.

I'll soon be back again with something else, until then...
Have a nice day.
Hugs, Birgit.
