It's Party Time

onsdag 26 mars 2014

Hello, and welcome to my blog!
I have been on a course to learn to better coloring up with my Copic pens.  I dont know if it helped but I hope so, and from now on maybe you will get to see some more painted images here on the blog:)

I wanted to make a birthday card for a child, but I think these beautiful colors makes anyone happy and lucky.

I used the "Happy Birthday" paper from You Do and the "Amy" stamp from Whimsy Stamps.

The butterfly was cut out of wellum and white CS with a Sizzix die and then the white one was sponged a little with red Distress ink. Then they were placed one above the other.

Okay...I think that´s it for me this time. Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hugs, Birgit

Tag And Envelope

söndag 23 mars 2014

Happy Sunday, everyone!
Today I´m sharing a tag with related envelope. The beautiful images are from Nicecrane Designs that gave me old school books and posters inspiration.

I also used pattern papers from PION design - A Day in May.
The envelope was made by first run folded wax paper with a Sizzix embossing folder, and then I sew together it on the sewing machine.
Stamps from Rox Stamps.

Other supplies: Washi tape, Flowers, Lace, Natural Twine, colored in Seam Binding and torn Fabric.

Oh, I forgot the little bee stamp, it is from Stampers Anonymous - Tiny Things.
Have a beautiful day...the sun is shining here today...out and enjoy!
Hugs, Birgit

Youth Card

torsdag 20 mars 2014

 Hi everyone!
I popped in at Ett Trykk and saw the March challenge again. I saw it already for a couple of weeks ago but thought that this was not for me. Justin Bieber, youngsters and Canada's colors, red and white ....oh my.

But sometimes it can be difficult to resist a challenge, so I throw myself in it and made a card. I thought a card to a guy, simple, a bit tough ... red and white of course.

Now you've seen it. I hope my cards can join in the following challenges too.
The Paper Players - Clean and Simple
Craft Room - Transport (I think you can get from A to B with this)
That's all for today folks, wish you a great day!
Hugs, Birgit

fredag 14 mars 2014

Hello there!
I´d like to show you today a card that I made to the challenge over at CAS(E) this Sketch. I chose an image with three cute vintage girls from Nicecrane Designs that makes me remember childhood/friends, and aren´t they cute?
I used the Classic Words stencil from Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi together with Wendys embossing paste to create the sentiment. The background were made with Black Soot Distress ink and a Prima Marketing stencil. I found a piece of scrap paper from my stash with matching colors, and that´s about it I think.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hugs, Birgit

Hi there...
I´m dropping in to share a card I have created for The Shabby Tea Room and their "Spring is Near" challenge. I used some old papers from my stash and combined them with a couple of images from the Hello Friend paper from Graphic 45 that I cut out.

I made a little tag using stamps from Red Rubber Design and Stampers Anonymous "Tiny Things"(birds). The round stamp is from Rox stamps.

I have stitched the layers, added flowers and some other things from my stash.

Okay...I think that´s enough, now I'll go out in the sun...I hope you all have a happy and sunny day!
Hugs, Birgit
