Hi everyone!
It´s Monday and I have a card with a very cute and kind snake to share today. I´m playing along with a few blog challenges.
This sweet snake is a digi image that I colored up with my Copic pens, I also used a little Glossy Accents for the eyes. I stamped the Reprint sentiment, die cut out with a speech bubble die and popped up using foam tape. I added a leaf that I punched out of gold glitter paper together with some leftover leafs that I sponged with Distress inks. And that's all I think, a pretty simple card.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Hi everyone!
I´m here to share a Birthday card for a grandchild as well as for Cupcake Inspirations color theme challenge, pink, teal and cream, this is my take.
For my card I used a digi image that I colored up with my Copics, I also added some Glossy Accents. The rounded edge was made with a Die-namics die and for the teal stripes at the lover part, I used Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi´s Dots & Stripes Borders stencil together with Distress inks. Next, I stamped the Reprint sentiment and cut it out with a Joy Crafts Speech bubble die, I backed it up with black foam for dimension. I decided to add a butterfly from an old cut out paper, I adhered metal tape behind before I cut it out so I could bend it a bit.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello and happy weekend!
With a blink of an eye, it´s already time for school can this bee? The summer has gone so fast. Anyway, today I have a Center Step Card to share with you.

I have used Tim Holtz "Crazy Dogs" stamp set together with the coordinating dies, and the coloring is made with my Copics. I also added some glitter Stickles and Glossy Accents. The stamped sentiment is from Penny Black´s "mimi´s love" stamp set. There is not much more to say about this, old leftover paper, grass made with a die sponged with green distress ink and a pair of enamel dots to finish with.
Thanks for stopping by! Wishing you a great weekend!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello there!
Although it seems a long time yet until Christmas time, I have a another Christmas card to share today, as usual I have used the Muse:ChristmasVisions as inspiration.

Here is my take on it...
To start with, I have used a cardstock in black with a beautiful shimmer that unfortunately is not visible on the photo. I die cut the sentiment using Tim Holtz Holidays Words "Winter" set and adhered it with foam tape for dimension. Next, I die cut some branches with Tims "Holidays Greens" set and Memory Box "Berry Sprig" dies, I sponged on some Distress inks. 3D snow and white Nuvo Crystal Drops was also applied and I finished of by adding a few brown bling stones.
As always thank you so much for stopping by!

Hi everyone!
Today´s card is most about the background that I created using some Alcohol Inks, I dripped them on and blended them out with Blending Solution. I also rubbed on some gold foil in a few places.
I used the Tutti Designs Leafy Wreath die on booth gold glitter and white cardstock, then I layered them overlapping with foam tape to add dimension. Next, I added a Craft Emotions die cut bow where I also added Distress ink and Glossy Accents. The stamped Bildmålarna sentiment was cut out with a Spellbiders Card Creator die.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello there friends!
Popping in today with another card created for Muse:ChristmasVisions, Cornelia is our Muse with this card...

..and here is my take on it:
I stamped the reindeer and the sentiment from Scrapfabriken, and this time I reached for my watercolors. To the red pattern in the lower edge I used Tim Holtz Plaid stencil and to cut out the clouds I used Die-namics dies.
Wishing everyone a happy weekend!
Hugs, Birgit

Hi there!
Today, I have a card to show where I have used the Saturated Canary Multi-Tasking Mama stamp from Little Darlings Rubber Stamps. 
I colored her up with my Copics and added Stampendous Fran-tage Shabby White embossing pouder in the upper corners. The Smile was made using Shine On Rub-On Foil from Prima. I added a punched edge and tied a bit twine around.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
