Warning! A Hug Can Jump Out When You Open ...

fredag 29 mars 2013

Hello friends!
With this card, I wish you all a Happy Easter!
I hope you all have a nice weekend with lots of good food with family and friends!

I started with the last papers I had left of Primas Almanac collection, I've enjoyed them very much.
But everything has an end, and new nice papers are published all the time.

The sentiment from K-Designs were stamped and clear heat embossed.
Then I cut it out and adhered the pieces to the card. 

The flower was made by metal tape and jute fabric. After cutting out with a x-cut die, I painted it with white Gesso and little Inka Gold.

Some old buttons, twine, pearls and other flowers finished of my card this time.

I´d like to enter this card into the following challenges.
C.R.A.F.T Challenge - Mothers Day/Female
Divas By Design - Use Metal (Metal Tape)
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Crafts and Me - Pretty in Pink

Thank you for taking the time to read this far.
Eat a lot of eggs and candy! (I'll do that.)
Hugs, Birgit

It's Spring In The Air

onsdag 13 mars 2013

Hello there friends!
Thanks for stopping by. Today I´m back with a spring post, even if it's snowing outside my window right now:) I thought for a while that the winter was over, but I had obviously totally wrong.
But today I have a card in a bit of a spring flair to show you.

I´ve taken a sweet Alota Rubber stamp and colored it up with Copics.
I used this weeks sketch over at Sketch N Stash, and some Spring Time papers from last years Inkido collection.

The image frame was made with one Nestabilities Romantic Rectangles die.
I do not remember from where the lower sentiment stamp comes from, but the one at the top is made with a Dear Lizzy roller stamp.

I decorated with flowers and some other stuff from my stash.
Here are a couple of other challenges for this card:
Anything Goes - Seeing Double
Bearly Mine - Easter
Celebrate The Occation - Spring is in the Air
Allsorts Challenge - Springtime
CMC Copic - Anything Goes + Bugs/Butterflies

Now I'll have a cup of coffee and look out through my window at all the white out there. I might post a photo of it later.
Hugs, Birgit

Do What You Love

måndag 11 mars 2013

Hello friends!
Today I will show you a card in the so-called clean and simple style. It was a very long time since I tried it at all.
But I thought the challenge at Less is More this week could be something to try, one layer with spots and stripes.
All right then, here it is....

I used horse stamps from Inkadinkado, they are fantastic.
I combined them with a stamp with spots from Norsk Stempelblad Art Journaling 5th.

For the sentiment, I simply took out my old typewriter. Yes, it is great fun!

Then I simply sponged the edges with a couple of Distress inks. And that´s it!

I think I try this card for some other challenges too:
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Stampin Royalty - Clean and Simple

Have a continued good week!
Hugs, Birgit

Happy Easter

tisdag 5 mars 2013

Hello, thank you for stopping by today!
This time I thought to hang on this month's  Easter challenge over at StampARTic.
Here is my take on it.

Things I used are old butterfly papers from Panduro, and a vintage image from Pion Design.
The tag is a freebe I found at Astrids Artistc Efforts.

The little yellow rose was mounted in 3D and placed in the left corner.
It became nicely, I think, the yellow color is so beautiful.

The bird was also cut out from a Crafty Individuals paper and adhered to my card.

The eggs were cut out from different left over pieces of paper with one oval Spellbinders die.

The sentiment are computer made, and then cut out with one Shapeabilities Nested Lacey Pennants.
Here you get a little peek on the inside too. I wanted to see some more of the lovely butterflies they give me springfeelings.

I´d like to enter this card in a few more challenges:
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Kreative Stempelfreunde - Springcolours
Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes

I hope you have a great day!
Hugs, Birgit

Two Creative Guys

söndag 3 mars 2013

Hi there!
I've had a couple of boys with me, who absolutely wanted to make some cards.
So we played together at the kitchen table for a while and the boys were sometimes deeply concentrated ...

And actually there was a card made ​​by me too, very easily done with the help of some stickers. The stickers were very popular by the guys too ...

I used the sketch from Stampin Royalty just because it was so simple that I remembered it in my head.
I´m also entering Cute Card Thursday - Something Old (wery old supplies:) and
Stampin with the Dragon - Anything Goes

And this is what the boys did ...OK, it was nice front and back sides as well, but most ended up in the middle:)

That's all from me today. Hope you have a nice day!
Hugs, Birgit
