My Last Project For Inkido

lördag 29 december 2012

Hi friends!
With this little card I want to thank you all for this Inkido year!
Thank you for your support and kindness you have shown me by visiting the Inkido blog and leaving comments!

This card folding are called "Magic Window".
All the stuff are available from PaperCraftScandinavia, as usual:)
When you open the card to see if it's something nice on the inside, occurs something in a little magical window inside the card itself. Two pennants are pulled aside so the motif of the circle appears.
I ´d like to enter this for Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be cretive:)
Hugs, Birgit

More Christmas...

torsdag 27 december 2012

Hi there!
As promised I'm back with a new project...and this one is another Christmas card I did not manage to post on the blog before Christmas:)
For this one I picked up my Tim Holtz Distress Markers, which I do not usually use so often in fact. So it was really fun to do it now. I used one Alotha stamp, and papers from Authentique Wonder Collection.
I think the colors became great and I cut it out, the bow got a layer Glossy Accents for more highlight.
For the sentiment I used one Merry Christmas You Do stamp, as well as the round one in the upper left corner.
Im entering the following challenges:
Charisma Cardz - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Little Miss Muffet - Anything Goes
Party Time Tuesdays - Anything Goes
Lady Anne´s - Anything Goes
Thank you so much for taking the time to stopping by my blog!  
I'll be back soon....
Hugs, Birgit

Christmas Greetings

lördag 15 december 2012

Hello, the time gets closer to Christmas, I like to show you my latest project.
I needed something to put a gift in so I took a pretty ugly bag and fixed it with paper and stuff from PaperCraft Scandinavia.
I apologize for the slightly dark pictures, it's so bad daylight right now.
First I covered it with a layer Gesso and adhered the papers. Then I went loose with the glue gun and lots of flowers:)
It is a pity that the red glitter is not so visible in the pictures, the red roses glistening just wonderful!

  I think that´s all for today from me.
I´d like to enter this Christmas gift bag in the following challenges:
Crafts And Me - No Blues Allowed
Kreative Stempelfreunde - Christmas Packages
Dream Valley - Christmas
Challenges4Everybody - Anything Goes
Wags´n Whiskers - Anything Goes
Well I hope you take some time for yourself too these busy days, stay crafty and bee happy!

Hello all, and happy Thursday!
Today I like to show you an altered matchbox I made with a Inkadinkado stamp.

I sponged the image with red and green Distress Inks, then stitched it on to a doly and pieces of left over Christmas papers.
3D snow was adhered on the side edges. I added lace and rhinestones at the top and the bottom.

Snowflaces was punched out and layered with Star Dust Stickles. I colored in Seam Binding with inks and tied it to a bow, then decorated with a button and twine.
The sentiment was made with a Inkido stamp and cut into two pieces.
