A Thousand Thanks

torsdag 31 oktober 2013

Hi there!
I had so much fun making those leaves that I showed on the card in my last post, that I made a couple that were a little bigger at the same time. I used Tattered Leaves from Tim Holtz Alterations to cut them out.

These I have now placed here together with some twine and tissue paper.

The sentiment was made with a stamp from Inkido in Fired Brick Distress Ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hello, and welcome back!
Here is a card with autumn theme, I'm a bit late I know. Here where I live, all the leaves has come down now, and the trees are bare.

The leaves are made with a Nellie Snellen punch, which actually consists of two parts. One that punches out the leaf and one pressing it, so it gets its form. But first I sponged a piece of CS with some different Distress inks and then sprayed it with some water. 

After punching them out, I gave them three layers with clear Utee.
I think they became very nice and shiny, I hope you like them too.

For the sentiment I used a stamp from Rox Stamps, and the dots was made with a Red Rubber Design stamp.

That´s it for today. Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

The Snow Is Falling Down

tisdag 22 oktober 2013

Hello, and welcome to my blog!
I have a Christmas card to share today. I wanted to try the Studio 490 embossing paste for the snow and the snowflakes on this card with Tilda.

This stamp is a few years old, but I thought it could be a good one for my project. First I colored her up with my Copics, then I added the paste and sprinkled over glitter while it was still wet.
The black/grey snowflaces was made with a stencil from You Do, Distress ink and Stickles.

The goldy sentiment was also made with a You Do stencil and the paste. This time I sprinkled over gold embossing pouder and heated in. What a great texture it became!

The big white snowflakes behind the image was made with a stencil, paste and glitter too. The sentiment on the little tag are also from You Do. I finished of with the red Berry Cluster from Petaloo that I really like, some seam binding and pearls.
That´s it for the details on this one. I hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Simply...Merry Christmas

fredag 18 oktober 2013

Hi everyone!
Today I have a very simple card to show, sometimes it's fun to change style totally.

I used  a Nellie Snellen die to punch out the Christmas tree. Then I placed a piece of paper behind it with 3 D foam, to achieve a 3D effect.
It shows unfortunately not so good in the picture, but I also rounded the top left corner to get something "happen" there.

I stamped the sentiment with a stamp fromVilda Stamps. I finished of the card with a star at the top of the tree.
Yes, that's it ... Now I wish you all a lovely autumn weekend!
Hugs, Birgit

Candy Box

tisdag 15 oktober 2013

Hi, and welcome back to my blog!
Today I have a candy box to show. I made it by following the tutorial that was shown in the Ett Trykk magazine.

I thought it was a good time to use up a little of all waste pieces that are left over after other projects.
Of course, still some new things found its way here as well, such as the feather, and the leaves that I made myself.

To them, I used a leaf punch from Nellie Snellen, some Distress inks and three layers of UTEE.
The stamped sentiment on the front side are from Whimsy Stamps.

The one on the back are from red Rubber Design.
That´s all from me today. As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Christmas Reindeer

tisdag 8 oktober 2013

Hi everyone!
Thanks so much for visiting me today! First, I made a card that I was not at all happy with. I thought it was too much dots, and too little border around the card. Also, I had stamped a few snowflakes that felt all wrong. So I simply made a new one, and here you see the result.

The problem was to remove the reindeer from the first card, the glue stuck very well, I must admit. Finally it loosened but unfortunately also a piece of the leg on the reindeer came off, and part of the reindeer antlers.
So here is the poor mistreated reindeer, luckily you can´t see it so good if you don´t look closely.

I embossed him with three layer silver embossing pouder and then stamped into it while the third coat was still soft with a text stamp. I placed him so that it looks like he is heading out of the "picture".
Have a great day everyone!
Hugs, Birgit
