A Big Congratulations

torsdag 21 december 2017

Hello there crafters!
The days fly away ... soon it's Christmas! I myself have created a gold glittering card for my son which has his birthday the day before Christmas Eve:)
 I hope he likes this very CAS card where I have used the Feathers stencil from Plony together with embossing paste and loose gold glitter. Two of them was cut out by hand and adhered with foam tape, as well as the stamped Kristinas Scrapbooking sentiment. I also added a Craft Emotions die cut bow, gold twine and a few gold enamel dots.
Thanks for stopping by this very busy time of year and have yourself a
Merry Christmas!
Hugs, Birgit

Wishing You A White And Beautiful Christmas Time

söndag 17 december 2017

Happy Sunday!
Have you already sent your Christmas card? For me this is my last Christmas card for this year, tomorrow they will be sent with a Christmas greeting to everyone.
I started with the Sizzix Forest Frame die and backed it up with a Dixi Craft paper from Christmas Patterns/Blue paper pad. I stamped the Svenska Textstämplar sentiment in the middle and heat embossed it in silver, then I adhered it with foam tape for some dimension. Next, I die cut the Rox Stamps "God Jul" out of both silver cardstock and black foam to create the sentiment. I chose not to add a lot more details, just a few extra hearts in silver.
That´s all for today! Have a fantastic week ahead!
Hugs, Birgit

Let It Snow

torsdag 14 december 2017

Hello crafters!
Sharing another Christmas/Winter card, this time a Joy Fold card and as you know, it is possible to fold out the top panel to open it.
I started with the Cute Christmas Character Die set to create the snowman and followed up with the Cottage die fromWild Rose Studio for the background. Then prepared a cardbase using DCWV papers The Winter Wonder Stack. By die cutting the Craft Emotions bow twice and glue them together, it became stiff enough to hold the top panel in place. I stamped the sentiment from Lawn Fawn Winter Big Scripty Words set and cut it out with the coordinated die, I also backed it up with white foam for more dimension. Finally I punched out a few snowflakes and added some Star Dust Stickles and white Nuvo Crystal Drops as a finish touch.
That´s all for today! As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello there!
I´m popping in this very busy time of year with a vintage Christmas card to share. I gathered some old things I found in my stash and put them together,
this is what came out.
 Do not just ask me where everything comes from because I will not be able to answer it. Leftover things, fabric and a sentiment stamp from K-designs. I splattered over some white paint for a snowy look. 
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

fredag 8 december 2017

Hello friends!
I have another Christmas card to share today, where I have used a wonderful little die with a reindeer from Roxstamps, just love it!
In the middle of the ball I first added Glossy Accents and then spread over loose glitter before it had dried. The star background was made by X-Cut Stars embossing folder and behind that a paper from Lemon Craft Christmas Carols paper stack. Next, I created the sentiment whith a stamp and die set from Marianne Designs, I also sponged it a little bit with Distress ink and adhered it with foam tape. Gold twine finishes it off!
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend!
Hugs, Birgit

A Christmas Hug For You!

onsdag 6 december 2017

Hello friends!
I´m sharing a red and green Christmas card today with a K-designs sentiment that says with an approximate translation..."Outside it´s cold, snow everywhere, with this I want to give warmth, open then you'll see."
I started by die cutting the oval for my sentiment out of a piece of cardstock and then run the panel thru the Mini Polka embossing folder from Papermania. I adhered it over the sentiment with foam tape for dimension. Next, I used the Winter Warmth stamp set from My Favourite Things together with Distress inks, I then cut them out with the coordinating dies and added them with foam tape. I finished of my card by adding some Glossy Accents and glitter.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Congratulations To The Baby

fredag 1 december 2017

Hi everyone!
Today I have no Christmas card to show, instead I have something completely different, a card to a couple of parents who just got a new little baby girl!
The image New Daddy is a digi from Sami Stamps and I colored it up with my Copics, it's such a beautiful image! Therefore, I wanted to give it a nice frame so I used an old Spellbinders Scalloped Edge Frame die and adhered it with foam tape for dimension. The sentiment is from Kristinas Scrapbooking. The balloon is a part of the Whipper Snapper Designs A Blessing From Heaven stamp that I cut out by hand and added a layer of Glossy Accents to. Finally, I added a charm and a little ribbon bow.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit
