Bad Ideas Make The Best Merories

onsdag 31 oktober 2018

Hello there friends!
Just dropping in to share a male inspired greeting card. I used a Katzelkraft stamp and used colors in brown, black and gold.
I colored up the image with my Copics, added some Diamond Stickles and Glossy Accents to the eyes and nose. I used the Plaid Layering Stencil from Tim Holtz and Distress Inks on watercolor paper to create the background. Next, to create some sort of frame I used parts of the MFT Die-namics Blueprint die set and sponged the edges with Distress ink. To finish of, I added a few gold sequins and a bit of twine.
Whishing everyone a happy day!
Hugs, Birgit

Hi there!
Today I´m sharing a project where I have used the awesome Peeker Snowmen die set from Cottage Cutz.
For the background I used the Sizzix Birds & Reindeer embossing folder set, the Tim Holtz Alterations Window & Window Box die and an old designer paper image that I attatched at the back of the window. I also used Tims Holiday Greens die set and one CraftEmotions die for the bow. All coloring was done with Distress inks that was sponged upon the die cuts, except for the Bildmålarna sentiment that was colored with Copic pens and I also added some Diamond Stickles.
Thanks so much for stopping by, have a great weekend!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello there crafters!
Today I´m here with another Christmas card, this time in a vintage style, that I love!
First I created the background using Distress inks and a couple of stencils, the Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi´s Dots & Stripes Borders and for the stars a CraftEmotions stencil. First I added embossing paste over the star stencil, then sprinkled over Stampendous Aged Gold embossing pouder and heated in. I cut out hearts in different sizes from both an old Crafty Individuals Angel paper and white CS that I then decorated with distress inks and Aged Gold embossing pouder. For the sentiment I used Tim Holtz Winter die set. I also adhered some of Tim´s Holiday Greens die cuts, white feathers, bling stones and a little paper bow.
This card was fun to make, I hope you like it too.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello there!
Today I have another Christmas card for Muse:ChristmasVisions, even if I first thought... oh no, not yet a Muse card with three trees in a row, only a few weeks ago there was such one. Made that, been there, and I thought to skip this challenge but then it became one anyway...don´t really know how it happened:)

For todays card, I have used the Frosted Christmas Trio die from Memory Box and heat embossed it with Stampendous Aged Silver embossing pouder, love that Fran-tage pouder! I backed it with black foam to give it dimension. The sentiment is created with Lawn Fawn Winter Big Scripty Words stamp set and cut with the coordinated die, and it´s also gold heat embossed. I thought the firs needed a background, so I took out a CraftEmotions stars stencil and sponged it with Iced Spruce Distress ink. I finished of by adding a few gold sequins.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello there!
I´m back today with a Birthday card perfect for the birthday period that will come about in November in our family. This image is a digi and I colored it up with my Copics, I also added some Star Dust Stickles and Glossy Accents, then I cut it out by hand.
I poped up the image with foam tape over the designer paper background. I stamped the Inkido sentiment in green and then clear heat embossed it, the small Rox Stamps sentiment was also stamped and heat embossed, but in black. I die cut the leaves using Memory Box Fresh Folige die and sponged them with Distress inks. I finished my card with a few small Copic colored hearts colvered with Glossy Accents...and a twine.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Happy Monday everyone!
Today´s card is for CAS(E) this Sketch and I´m also playing along with a few more Anything Goes challenges, A bit More Time To Craft, Penny´s Paper-Crafty, Through The Craft Room Door, and 613 Avenue Create.
For my card, I have mainly used two dies, Present from Simply Creative and the sentiment die from Gummiapan. I wanted to add that little extra by adding Glossy Accents to the balloon and the package ribbons to make them shine. I don´t think I need to say so much more about this project.
Wishing you all a great week.
Hugs, Birgit

Happy Friday!
I´m popping in with a quick post today to share a card created for CAS Colours & Sketches, and I´m also playing along with some other blog challenges.
For my card I have used Tim Holtz Alterations Tattered Leaves die and Poppy Stamps Forest Deer die. First I covered the leaf with Distress Stain Tarnished Brass, then I added Stampendous Aged Gold embossing pouder and heated in. I used a ribbon for the sentiment and popped it up with foam tape. I also used leftover designerpaper/things from my stash.

Have a great weekend!

Today I´m here with another card to share using Cornelia´s muse card as inspiration over at Muse:ChristmasVisionsI love their challenges!

I started with some watercolor paper. I sponged it with Distress inks and stamped the trees using Reprint and Panduro stamps. To create the snowfall, I used embossing paste and a MFT stencil. I had thought about sprinkling glitter over it but took the wrong jar and sprinkled over thick embossing enamel instead, so it was to heat it in instead. It became fat snowflakes. Next, I tore a piece of black cardstock to attach to the lower right corner and added 3D snow.
I die cut the star from white CS using Memory Box Traditional Stars and heat embossed it with Stampendous Frantage Aged Silver and I also sprinkled Silver mix into it. I hope you can see the reindeer in black that jumps in from the left, it's die cut with a Poppy Stamps Forest Deer die. The sentiment was created by myself on my computer.
That´s all from me today, as always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Hi everyone!
Today´s card is for CAS Colours & Sketches color challenge, and some other challenges too.
 I used a digi image this time, and all the coloring is made with my copic pens. The cat was cut out by hand and adhered with foam tape to make it pop. I also added Star Dust Stickles to the cat's teeth and it got pink cheeks too, even if that color was not included in the challenge, I felt it was necessary to add it. I hope it´s ok. The sentiment stamp is from  Svenska Textstämplar.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit
