A Thank You

söndag 31 augusti 2014

Hi friends!
Now I'd better hurry ... this month's challenge over at En liten butik is running out. This time the challenge is about Distress squares and I´ve planned to make something in this fun technique, so...here is my contribution. 

The flower stamp is from La Blanche and after coloring it with some darker fall colors, I added Glossy Accents and Platina Stickles to give it a little more interest. The sentiment stamp is from Rox stamps.

Have a great Sunday!
Hugs, Birgit

I found some other challenges where I think my card can join in:
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes (Tastes of Autumn)

Hi everyone!
I´m back with a new card and it is my contribution to The Shabby Tea Room challenge that "Celebrate" this week. So... why don´t you join me for a Coffee? 

Oh, I love those shabby pink colors from the papers I used, and together with some collage technique it became something I really like.

 I used Papers from Maja Design "Coffee in the Arbour", PION design and Melissa Frances "Hooray For Cake". Die from Go Kreate "Large Frame Frilly#7". The sentiment is from Heidi Swapp.
I don´t think I need to tell you more about this card so...that´s it for today.
Thanks so much for dropping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Just Open It...

onsdag 27 augusti 2014

Hello friends!
I have a quick inspiration card to show today, I happened to catch sight of the slightly sad / suffering reindeer? stamp that was in a box ... almost forgotten, so I had to pick it up:)

It became a little different Christmas card, ehh...the right Christmas spirit has not appeared yet.
Thats all from me today. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Using Up My Stash

söndag 24 augusti 2014

Hi everyone!
When I saw the challenge "Use your Stash" at Try It On Tuesday for almost exactly a week ago I finally got the inspiration to do something with that strange thing that I've had lying in a box for so long and do something with it. And at the same time I have only used all the old lying leftover materials. 

It actually feels really good to finally put to use. But I must warn you...here comes a great number of pictures.

First I treated the chipboard with  brushed pewter Distress Stain and Graphit Inka Gold to get that silver gray color.

And then I went loose in my stash...

...yes, I know it´s a great mix of old stuff:)

But I must admit that it was a fun project!

If you have reached here, I can tell you that it´s not so much remaining now...

...and this is the end.

If you've come this far, thank you very much for your visit here today!
Have a great day!
Hugs, Birgit

I have found some other challenges where I think my project might fit:

Cleaning Whirlwind

fredag 22 augusti 2014

Hi friends!
I become just so happy to see her, the Housework Fairy from Stampingbella:) She's like the wind flying through the air, cleaning, and therefore I wanted to color her with water colors to get a transparent and not too sophisticated look.

I used Distress inks, and the only thing I added was a little Star Dust Stickles because surely it is a little magic in the air...

I hope you like this too... anyway thanks so much for stopping by today.
Hugs, Birgit

Hi there!
It's been a few days since the last post here on the blog but I've been busy with other things, I hope, however, to be back now that the schools starts again and I get a little more time for my crafting:) In addition, I bought a new computer and you all know that it of course brings a lot of problems.

For today I've been playing around a bit with my stamps, heat embossing, stencils and Distress inks to make a few simple tags. Ready for any occasion, I like to have that.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello there!
I´m sharing a CAS card today with a sentiment which I think can be used for any appropriate occasion.:)

I made the background by using a Prima Marketing stencil and a couple of Distress inks. The sentiment from Heidi Swapp is stamped with Stazon Cherry Pink, and the notes are made with Die-namics dies. The image was found in my stash.
Thanks for stopping by today...I hope your week continues with a smile!
Hugs, Birgit

Believe In The Magic Of Christmas

måndag 4 augusti 2014

Hi there!
I'm finally back with a new card, it's been crazy a lot to do in the heat here with me, I actually yearn for a bit of rain now ...

Since I have promised myself to start with the Christmas cards in good time this year, I have the first one here. I had intended to create and publish the card in July but it will be now instead:)

I just had to try this Bendi Frame Card tutorial that I found at Splitcoaststampers, so fun with that curved frame front. I hope you can see the depth of the card.

I have used stamps and dies from Tim Holtz Alterations "Holiday Joy" set, the "Pine Needle Border" and "Trditional Stars" dies from Memory Box and the "Small Blooming Poinsettia" die from Poppystamps.

The background was made with a Sizzix embossing folder and Distress Stain Brushed Pewter. I heated in some Stampendous Aged Silver embossing pouder on the Tim Holtz word band. I think you can see the most by yourself ...
Thanks for stopping by, wishing you a wonderful week ahead!
Hugs, Birgit
