Sweet Baby Boy

måndag 31 juli 2017

Hello there crafters!
I´m back again with one more baby card which I want to show. I love Tim Holtz Baby stamps so I started my project by stamping and coloring up one of them with my Copics.
Then I cut it out using Die-namics Inside & Out Diagonal Stitched Square die and distressed the edges with Tumbled Glass ink. I used background papers from Fleur Design the "Our Baby Boy" Collection. I die-cut the heart using Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic and Classic Scalloped Hearts dies, I distressed the edges with Vintage Photo ink. Next the Memory Box "Baby Script" and the name was cut out, using Craft Emotions dies. I found some pink hearts on a leftover piece of paper which I cut out by hand, added a layer Glossy Accents and adhered, as well as the image, with foam tape for dimension. I drew the ballon strings with a pen and finished of with a small bow.
Okay, I think that´s about it. Thank you for stopping by today!
Hugs, Birgit

My Unicorn Believes In Me

torsdag 27 juli 2017

Hi there!
I needed a welcome card to a baby, I found this unicorn in my stash and asked another child what color it would have and got the answer pink, and pink it is;)
I stamped the sentiment and colored up the unicorn from Scrapfabriken with my Copics and cut the image out by hand. I used Fleur Design "Our Baby Boy" paper and some Die-namics dies, Stitched Scallop Basic Edges and Inside/Out Stitch Oval. I also added some gold glitter on its horn, pink lace and a few clear sequins that finished of this project.
Have a great week and thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit
Ps: I just want to show you the sweet elephant that I placed on the envelope with the card.

When I Think Of You, I'm Like ... Happy

Hello there!
I had a thought about joining Inkspirational and their sketch challenge, but I don´t know what I was thinking about when I stamped up this card ... cherries always hang down, right?! So crazy it can get, so I thought for a while not to post it at all, but then I thought it's pretty nice anyway so here it is. 
I used a Waltzing Mouse Big Berries - Cherry stamp set and a sentiment stamp from Svenska Textstämplar. Distress inks, Glossy Accents and a few gold sequins was also used.
Not much more to say about this, as always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Hope Your Christmas Will Be Magical

Hello there!
I hope you all have a lovely summer! I have and that's why there's a bit longer between my posts here on the blog right now. This card is for Muse:ChristmasVisions challenge and I have had it ready for some days now, but I have not found the time to publish it until now.
I love Jessica Frost-Ballas card so I just tried to create something similar with what I have. So I used a Christmas Layered Stamps set from Studio Light to create this one together with Distress inks. The sentiment stamp is from Reprint and the die from Rox Stanps. To get a little more dimension I added Glossy Accents to some parts of the flower and the die cut.
And that´s about it, I think. Happy summer everyone!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello there!
Today I have a card for Cupcake Inspirations challenge, it has a fairly simple design.
I used a digi image from Sami Stamps that I colored up with my Copics. I painted one flower petal twice, cut out and adhered it with foam tape for dimension. I also added Glossy Accents, glitter and some rhinestones. The sentiment die is from Gummiapan.
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello there crafting friends!
I hope you have a great summer, I have! I'm trying to squeeze in small moments of crafting now and then. Since I got some leftover material after my last project I wanted to use it too and here is what came out.

First I layered the "Flower" using foam tape for dimension, created with Docrafts X-Cut dies and some blue Distress inks. The sentiment was white heat embossed and then placed in the middle. Next I added Stampendous "Aged Silver" embossing pouder and heated in, love that stuff. For the background I used We R Memory Keepers "Gemstone" embossing folder.
Okay, I think that´s about it. Have a great day!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello Summer

fredag 7 juli 2017

Hi there crafters!
I am popping in to share a summer card, where I've also dusted off my seldom-used sewing machine.
I used old papers from Echo Park and some dies. I sewed the paper strips together and stitched it to the flower panel cut with one Docrafts die. I added leaves which was cut with two dies from Memory Box "Slender Leaves" and Fresh Foliage. In the middle I adhered a mini flower I made of vellum, small dies and a brad. For the sentiment I used a Rox Stamps die which I adhered to black foam for dimension. I finished my card with a few enamel dots.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit
