On Christening Day

måndag 27 februari 2017

Hi everyone!
 Today there will be a super quick post here on my blog, I just want to show you a digi image that I colored with my Copics, together with a sentiment stamp from Gummiapan.
I masked the rabbit and sponged the background with Distress Inks. Then I just added some Glossy Accents, dry Glitter and a few sequins.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

You´re One In A Buzz-Illion

torsdag 23 februari 2017

Hello there!
The sun is shining outside my window right now and I have to admit that the sun gives me hope for the coming spring, the best of seasons, if you ask me:)
I have used the "Fly-By Friends" stamp set and the coordinating dies from My Favourite Things to create this spring inspired card.

I colored all the images and the background with Distress inks, added StarDust/Diamond Stickles and Glossy Accents to some parts and details. The grass was cut with a Lawn Fawn die, and all parts was adhered with foam tape for dimension.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hugs, Birgit

Hi there!
Just poppin´ in today with a card created with the "Beautiful Day" stamp set by Altenew.
 First I stamped all the flowers using masking technique with my MISTI and colored them with Copics in pink and soft puple colors.
I white heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock and popped it up with foam tape. I finished with a few sequins and rhinestones for some sparkle.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello there crafters!
I didn´t have time to show you this card on the blog here before Valentine's Day, therefore, I show it for you now instead.
For this card I used two embossing folders, to the background, one of the We R memory keepers "Gemstone" folders. I hope you see the texture on the lower photo. The heart is made with one of the folders from "Sizzix Scallop Heart Doily Set" that I first dyed in with Momento Love Letter ink before I run it thru my embossing machine. I then cut the heart out by hand and adhered it with foam tape. The Whimsy Stamps "Film Strip" sentiment was framed with a little doodling and added with heart brads. I finished of by tying a ribbon around the card.
That´s all for today. Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

No One Can Be Down With A Balloon

onsdag 15 februari 2017

Hello there friends!
I hope you all had a happy Valentine´s Day!
I´m back after a short break and I´ve created a birthday card to a man's 55 birthday.
I started by cutting the ballon out, that is not really a balloon but a Dixi Craft Christmas decoration die, out of a piece of white paper. Next, I used one old paper with hats from Fancypantsdesigns "Swagger" paper pad and cut the numbers out of it with Mama Elephants dies. I sponged the edges with Distress ink and  added a couple of cut out letters under the hats. I backed the balloon with black cardstock and adhered the balloon and the frame with foam tape for dimension. Then I stamped the Gummiapan sentiment in "Coffee" Archival ink and finished of by adding the black twine under the balloon.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

torsdag 9 februari 2017

Hello there crafters!
Valentine´s are abounding in card land and I have another one with a little different folding using old Graphic 45 papers.
Inside, there will be both words of love and a few winning tickets (at least I hope it will be so). The Whimsy Stamps Film Strip sentiment was cut with a Teramo Labels die from Memory Box.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

Sending You Love

tisdag 7 februari 2017

Hello there!
Today I want to share a very clean and simple card created for Less is More, which by the way are celebrating birthday number 6, with a color wheele challenge.
I used the colors purple, pink, and red from the wheel. The background is made with Spun Sugar Distress ink and the "On the Diagonal" stencil from My Favourite Things.
I cut out the hearts with Penny Black´s "Soft Caress" die, then added red inks and Glossy Accents. The small stamped sentiment in black is from the MFT "Fly-By Friends" stamp set, and the big one in purple and pink is from an old Autumn Leaves stamp set "Love With A Fluorish". I couldn´t resist adding some Glosy Accents there too.
Okay that´s all for me. Whishing all of you a wonderful day!
Hugs, Birgit

Love Those Berries...

måndag 6 februari 2017

Hello there crafters!
Just popping in to share a card I´ve created for Muse:Christmas Visions and I´m also linking up with some other challenges.
I used the Festive stencil from Tim Holtz and sponged it with Distress inks. I LOVE those berries, so to give them extra dimension and shine, I added Glossy Accents.
Since there was a lot of gold (looks like embossing) on Chriss card, I wanted to use that too and I think it became nice on the pine cones. For the sentiment I used a Rox Stamps die, and I finished of with a few gold sequins.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Birthday

fredag 3 februari 2017

Hello friends, and Happy Friday!
 I hope the weather is with you where you live, I can tell you, here with me it's gray skies and pretty depressing outside the windows.
Today I have a Birthday card to share. I don´t know how it´s with you, but I always need some prepared, suddenly, I need one or two. I started by stamping the "Fire Out Set" from Art Impressions and color it up with my Copics. Next I cut the lady out by hand and adhered her with foam tape on old designer papers from my stash. I used Tim Holtz "Celebrate" die set for the Birthday sentiment and finished of with a few enamel dots.
Okay, wishing you a wonderful weekend!
Hugs, Birgit
