Have A Wonderful Birthday

onsdag 28 mars 2018

Hi crafty friends!
Today I´m sharing a Birthday card using the Flying Boy image from Sami Stamps. I colored it up with my Copics and cut it out by hand. 
Next, I created the background using watercolor paper and blue Distress inks, I also splattered some water over and dried away. Then I used the Large Cross-Stitched Circle Stackables dies from Lawn Fawn to cut out the circle, and I also stamped the Gummiapan sentiment. I adhered the panel and the image with foam tape to give dimension. To finish the card, I added Glossy Accents to the propeller.
Wishing everyone a happy day!
Hugs, Birgit

Forest Scene

söndag 25 mars 2018

Hi friends!
Today I have tried me on the Muse:ChristmasVisions challenge where Chriss is our muse with an inspiration card, here is my take on it.
I chose to use the Forest Frame die from Sizzix and gold glitter paper. But first I created the background using some different Distress inks in red and pink colors, I also splattered over water and white ink. Now, I thought it was too much gold glitter so I die-cut all the animals and hearts again in white and added with foam tape to calm the scene and also to create some dimension. Next, I die cut the Mandys sentiment in gold cardstock as well as black foam and glued together. I finished my card by adding white Pearl Maker.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!

Easter Card

torsdag 22 mars 2018

Hello and Happy Thursday friends!
For today´s card I have used the sweet Bambino stamp from Whipper Snapper Designs. I paired it with two stencils from Studio 490 Wendy Wecchi "From The Garden" and Crafters Workshop "Mini Tile Texture".
The talk bubble was created with one Joy Crafts "Labels & Tags" die and for the sentiment I used a Rox Stamps die. I framed the image and adhered it to the background created with Reminisce "Spring Tulips"paper, the egg strip is from the same paper. The card was finished with a few light green pearls.
As always thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
Hugs, Birgit

Hey there!
I´ve created one more Easter card using an old Alota Rubber Stamp and colored it up with Copic pens, I also added Glossy Accents and Star Dust Stickles.
I stamped a Panduro sentiment over the image and below I attached paper ribbon and a bow made with one Craft Emotions die. And that´s about it, I think.

Hi everyone!
Today I´m sharing a card for Easter, that I created using a super cute digi image, I colored it up with my Copic pens and I also added Glossy Accents to the flower.
 The sentiment stamp is from Reprint and the grass was made with the Lawn Fawn Grass Border die. Then I amused myself by cutting out eggs and the butterfly out of a few different designer papers. As final details I added some small velor balls and a twine bow. That´s about it, I think...the front panel was raised with foam tape.
Okay, thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs, Birgit

Just a quick post, to pop in with a card to share. I´m playing along with the Muse:ChristmasVisions challenge, Crafty Creations - Anything Goes, Crafty Hazelnut´s Christmas - Anything Goes, Stamping Sensations - Forest Friends and Addicted to Stamps and More - Holiday.
I started with Crafter´s Companion´s Christmas Cheer stamp set and colored the image up with my Copic pens, I also added some glitter Stickles.
MFT´s Snowball stencil and Distress ink to create a soft background. I stamped the Lawn Fawn Winter Big Scripty Word in teal blue and die cut with the coordinated die, I backed it with black foam. For the bottom I used MFT´s On the Diagonal stencil together with Distress inks. I finished my card with 3D snow an a few clear sequins.

Hello there crafters!
I have a card to share today, where I have used an old stamp with wonderful tulips in a row from Pysselpassion.
I masked the stamp a few times to create dimension and then I colored the tulips up with my Copic pens. I added a sentiment from Altenew "Beautiful Day" stamp set and adhered the panel with foam tape to pop it up over the paper underneath. I finished with a few clear sequins and some natural twine.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!

Good Morning!
Today I´ve created a card in black, white, silver and metal. That is, the butterfly is of metal that I colored with different Inka Gold colors.
I started by stamping the La Blanche flower and clear heat embossed it. Then I added Glossy Accents on the petals for a beautiful glossy effect which unfortunately is not visible on the photo. I backed the image with silver cardstock.
Next, I used the We R Memory Keepers "Gemstone" embossing folder on a piece of paper that I first colored with Distress Stain "Brushed Pewter", love that. The congratulations word was cut with a Gummiapan die and the black/white background paper was found in my way to big stash.
Thanks for joining me today!

It's Your Day Today!

söndag 4 mars 2018

Hello there crafters!
Today I have a card that I started a while ago and finally finished. I wanted to use some old but fun material, including the bottle caps that were so popular a few years ago and the canvas resist, which I have sprayed colored here. A little vintage inspired yet with a simple touch.
The sentiment stamp, and the Congrats die is from Gummiapan. I also used some sort of craft resist paper that I first crumpled and then flattened it and used to the background. Lace, a heart brad and enamel dots finished of. 
Okay, that's all for today I think.
Thanks for looking!
Hugs, Birgit
