Winter Wonderland

tisdag 27 november 2018

Hi again friends!
For today I have created a winter/Christmas card in fresh wintery colors. There is something magical about that season, I think.
First I used a Dixi Craft die to cut the Christmas ornament. Nest, I created the background using Distress inks on watercolor paper, the tree stamp is a part of  Tim Holtz  Holiday Joy stamp set. I splattered some white ink over it too. Then I used the Memory Box Pine Needle Border die and  Poppy Stamps Forest Deer die, cut them out and sponged them with Distress inks.  The sentiment stamp is from Penny Black and I also stamped a few snow flakes. The finishing touch was added with a red jingle bell, gold ribbon and glitter Stickles.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello there and happy Saturday!
The weeks run away and Christmas is approaching very fast so I keep working on my Christmas cards. This card has a flap that can be lifted up and there under is a small Christmas greeting.
I started with some Bo Bunny Sleigh Ride pattern papers for the backgrond. Next, I stamped the Art Impressions Reindeer Mini Shaker stamp, colored him up with my Copics and then cut him out by hand. For the nose there is a special die and also a mini action wobble to make the nose pop up. I added a layer Glossy Accents to make it shine as much as possible. I used a Die-namics Stitched Scallop Basic Edges die to cut the edge of the flap. For the tag I used a Tim Holtz die. Ok, I think that´s about it.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello there!
I´m back again with a new Christmas card to share. For today´s card I used a digi image that I colored up with my Copic pens.
To make a living scene I stamped trees in the background using a Reprint stamp, I also added Star Dust Stickles and Glossy Accents. The white heat embossed sentiment is from MFT´s Santa´s Elves stamp set and the Merry Christmas is from Tim Holtz Mini Holidays 3 stamp set. A few clear bling stones finish of this project.

From All Of Us To All Of You - A Very Merry Christmas

fredag 9 november 2018

Hello there!
I hope you all have a great Friday with the weekend ahead. My card for today is created for Muse:ChristmasVisions where Becca is our Guest Muse, here is my take...
...on her card.

For the bird, I used one embossing folder from Sizzix Birds & Reindeer Set and cut the bird out by hand after embossing. Then I added Star Dust Stickles and a layer Glossy Accents to get the right shimmer. For the back of the bird I added a Die-namics Fancy Flourish swirl die-cut that I first sponged with blue Distress inks. The Rox Stamps sentiment was heat embossed in silver, I adhered glitter paper and a blingstone strip underneath...old patterned paper from my way to big stash for the background and...I think that´s about it.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi everyone!
Because Christmas is now well under way I thought I would make a Christmas card of my old designer papers from my stash...and I found this lovely PION design papers.
I have also used Memory Box Truly Gifted dies to create the bow, the Berry Sprig die from Poppy Stamps and a mistletoe die from Xcut. A couple of retired sentiment stamps was used as well as some Distress inks. To finish the card I added Star Dust Stickles around the image and Christmas Red to the mistletoe.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit
