Santa's Reindeers?

måndag 31 oktober 2011

Hello everyone!
It's been a while since the last post, but now I'm back with a bunch of new cards that I will show to you the next days.
First comes this card with the beautiful reindeers, which I have printed on a piece of fabric.
The motif I found at The Graphics Fairy.

I'm sorry that the photo got a little dark, I blame the bad daylight, days are shorter now, right?
I show some details. If you have any questions please write them in the comments.
Here I have used Gold embossing pouder and Platinum Stickles.

I made a little package, and the numbers have gotten some Glossy Accents.

Isn´t it lovely my little pin?

Papers and Stamp: Reprint
Edge and Snowflake punch from Martha Stewart
The rest of the stuff I found somewhere in my stash.
Sorry this is quick, must go!

Entered Challenges:
ABC Christmas Challenge - V is for Vintage Christmas
Allsorts Challenge - A Christmas Easel Card

If You Dont Get Everything You Wished, Santa Comes Tomorrow

måndag 24 oktober 2011

Hi there... I just had to do a card for my son when I saw Crafty Creations challenge this week.
He's birthday the day before Christmas Eve, and this year he turns 25! Imagine how the years go by ....
I made it quite clean, black and snow white.

I have used the old labels that always came with the VHS movies that you could write on, if you remember them.
And for his name, I have used letters we found in a suitcase which we bought at one time.
A little Christmas spirit, I feel that the card should have, so I added some glitter.
I hope he understands that we love him very much.

This card is also for One Stop Craft Challenge - No Designer Paper, and Simon Say Stamp and Show - One Colour ( Maybe it does not qualify, but I show it just for fun anyway.)

As always thanks for your time, have a nice week!
Hugs, Birgit

Nice And Warm In Christmas Stocking

söndag 23 oktober 2011

Hello there! Hope you all have had a nice weekend.
It´s time for another christmas card.
I did this with the help of this week's sketch from Sketch Saturday.

To create this card, I used both Distress Inks and Metallic Twinklings to color the stamped image from Gillian Roberts. I also used some 3D snow effect, Glossy and Crackle accents.
It´s no good photo but maybe you can see it a little better here...

Spellbinders Floral Doily Motifs were used for cut out.
Papers from Webster´s Pages.

The chipboard snowflakes are covered with glitter and Gold embossing pouder.
I used a You Do stamp for the sentiment and embossed it black.
The edges were sponged with Forest Moss and Peeled Paint Distress Ink.
I finished with a green paper ribbon and white lace, a flower and gauze bandage that I colored in with Inks.

That´s it for today, have a good one!
Hugs Birgit

Hello, all my blog friends, I´m back!
I've had a breakdown on my computer! So I have to reinstall the entire Windows program, I almost had a breakdown myself. Phu! Now I hope that most things should work again.
In the meantime I have been waiting for all the updates were installed, I managed to do this Christmas card.

To start with, I used a paper from Inkido Forever Christmas.  And after I sewed down a lace and sewn around the edges, I painted with white acrylic paint, and added a little 3D Snow Effect and glitter.

Then I took one cut out from Melissa Frances Angel Collection and layerd over an Crafty Individuals Miniature image.
The chipboard snowflace was covered with white acrylic paint, Glossy accents and glitter.
Flower from Petaloo.

I used You Do stamps for the sentiment, and Star dust Stickles.
Here you will have a peek on the inside.

Hope you like it.
Have a wonderful week friends!
Hugs, Birgit
