Time for Less is More

onsdag 30 mars 2011

This time I knew exactly how my card would look like when I started.
And for once, I think my Less is More cards are really good. I'm not so good at this technique as you know. What do you think?

I have used:
Sentiment : Create with TLC
Embossing pouder: Clear
Stickles: Star Dust
 Spellbinders Nestabilities: Classic Hearts/ Classic Scalloped Hearts
Ribbon and Pearlstring: Purchased for Christmas in my local grocery store.

Hope you have a great Wednesday!
Hugs, Birgit.

Hello! It is a lovely weather here today, the sun is shining and it´s beautiful outside,
 even if it´s not so warm yet.

Spring is Sprung

söndag 27 mars 2011

Hi everyone!
For todays card the theme is about Spring.

And I have used the sketch over at Sketch Saturday for my sweet Tilda stamp.

She is colored with Copics and then the dress got some twinklings "Heavenly White" over it, for a shiny look. Then I added a little bit Stickles Platinum and Diamond. 
I dyed my seam binding whith Peeled Paint reinker. Then I made a Pin with some beads on it.

The lovely papers I have used is from PION design - sagan om våren and INKIDO - beige butterfly.
The sentiment is from StampingScrapping and the little tag was cut with a spellbinders tag die. For the leaves I have used my Punch, and the  flowers are from Wild Orchid, and the butterfly from Panduro.
A little bit of lace, twine and a handmade photo corner finished off my sweet spring card.

I enter this card into the following Challenges:
Totally Gorjuss - Spring is Sprung
Just Magnolia - Bingo ( Gems, Distressed Edges, Pin)
Scrappy Frogs Challenge - Flowers and Lace
The Shabby Tea Room - Bingo (Punch/Die, Embossed Edges, Ribbons,Flowers,Gems,Glitter, Lace)

Hope to see you back soon, and thanks so much for stopping by today.
Hugs, Birgit.

A Fun Masculine Card

fredag 25 mars 2011

Hi there!
Finally Friday, can´t belive how fast time flies!
This is the last day of the challenge over at Less is More, so here are finally my contribution this week.
And today I´ve done a funny card for a man with a little bit of humor.
It says: "First you forget names, then you forget faces. The next step is that you forget to pull up his fly and finally you forget to pull it down." (I hope it was translated correctly)

Crackle Accent....

Whishing you all a lovely Friday!
Hugs, Birgit.

Lenas Bicycle

måndag 21 mars 2011

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a lovely weekend.
Here in the family we have right now winter vomiting disease. It is not so funny, I say!
I'll still try to show you my last card, that was inspired by Lena's nice bike picture.

I wanted to keep the "flower power" feel of the colors and the theme - the bike.

I used the sketch over at Sketch Saturday, and I have written the sentiment on my computer.
It says "There is so much fun to live, because then you can see how it goes".

Do you like my bicycle? Is it not cool?

Papers are from Laura Ashley, and other products used includes buttons, flowers, ribbons, pearls, butterflies etc. comes from my stash.

And the inside....

This was so fun to do. I usually do not use these bright colors for my cards. (I was only missing the "psychedelic mushrooms" från the 1960 - century. ha, ha ...)

I enter this card into the following challenges:
Stamp with Fun - Spring (It is the time you take out your bicycle for the season, and the colors.)
Kreativen Stempelfreunde - Spring (see above)
Totally Gorjuss - Button it
Wags´n Whiskers - Spring (see above)
Phindys Place - Hot Stuff, Warm Colors, Sunshine
StampARTic - Spring and Easter

Thanks so much for stopping by today, hope I will be recovered for another day.
Hugs, Birgit.

Vintage Round Card

torsdag 17 mars 2011

Happy to see you here again!
I found myself in the mood for one more round card.
And I found a round sketch over at Waltzing Mouse to use,
and then I "borrowed" the colors from Sketchy Colors challenge - Grey, White and Puple.

I have used papers from Maja Design - Ska vi ta en fika.
The flower I made by a thicker band / string with a metal wire inside, so that I could bend it.
Then I put a brad in the middle.

For the rest I have used:
Spellbinders,Stickles, Sewing machine, (my sewing machine is very old and it is not so good anymore,but we struggle on together.) Lace, Seam binding, Pearls, Metall (star and wings), Stamp from StampngScrapping and certainly some more that I forgot to mention.

Maybe my card suits to Totally Gorjuss challenge also - Pearls and Lace
And Tuesday Throwdown - Lace. I think i´ll try with that.
Sist men inte minst Lenas bloggsida - färg utmaning, jättekul!

Thanks for looking!
Hugs, Birgit.
