Merry Christmas

onsdag 27 februari 2019

Hello there!
I have a Christmas card to share today using Tim Holtz wonderful Wise Men die, just love that scene with the three wise men!
First, I cut out of white CS and then I cut one more time out of black foam and adhered it to the back. Next, I sponged some parts with black Distress ink, then added Black Diamond and Platinum Stickles to make it glitter. Gold paper was used for the star. For the background, I sponged Distress inks over the whole panel, then splattered some water over and wiped away. I used a Mandys die for the sentiment.
Ok, that´s it, I think. Thanks for stopping by today!
Hugs, Birgit

My Imaginary Friend Says I Miss Imagination

Hi everyone!
Today I want to show a gift box that I decided to reuse by fixing it up a bit and give away to a man.
It already had a nice marbled surface so I concentrated on the image which is stamped with an old stamp, never used from my stash. From PaperArtsy Winter Wonderland 5 stamp set, I heat embossed in silver and sponged around with blue Distress inks. The sentiment is from InkyWings Snorkligt#2 stamp set. I used a piece of designer paper to create a background, added a Tim Holtz chitchat word and a couple of buttons. Finally I tied blue twine around the box.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello out there!
My card today is created with the Magnolias For Her stamp set from Altenew. Just like so many others, I have fallen in love with their wonderful flower stamps.
I colored mine in green, don´t know if there are green magnolias at all but because I like green it got to be so. First I stamped and heat embossed the flowers with gold embossing pouder before I colored up with Distress inks. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. I added a few pearls and clear sequins for a finishing touch. A really simple card which may even be suitable for a man?
Thanks for joining me today!

A Merry Christmas!

fredag 15 februari 2019

Hello there friends!
My project for today is a Christmas card, I feel it´s important to keep going all year round...and this is a sweet thing. I´m playing along with a few blog challenges.
I stamped the Magnolia stamp and colored with my Copics, then I added Diamond Stickles and Glossy Accents to the bow, then I cut it out by hand. I used Evergreen Bough Distress ink for the background, I sponged over the paper and then heated in Stampendous Shabby White embossing pouder. The sentiment from Tim Holtz Christmastime stamp set was cut out and adhered with foam tape to the background for dimension. I created a frame using Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Scalloped Rectangle dies. I finished my card with a few clear sequins.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello friends!
I hope you´ve had a good week so far. Today I have a Birthday card to share with you created using the gorgeous Dee´s Distinctively Secret Garden dies. All coloring are made with Distress ink watercolors.
For the background I stamped some old Viva Decor flowers and clear heat embossed them, then I colored with blue watercolor. I cut out the Mama Elephant numbers, sponged them with Distress inks and added a layer Glossy Accents to them as well as the flowers. The butterfly was cut with one CraftEmotions die and after coloring I added Star Dust Stickles. I also used the Fresh Foliage die from Memory Box and the sentiment die from Gummiapan. To finish of, I added a few blue pearls.
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments!
Hugs, Birgit

It Is Not Always I Am Right, But I've Never Wrong

Happy Sunday!
I am popping in with a slightly different but fun Valentine's Day card, once again I have used Katzelcraft´s Les Rats des villes stamp set. I think I'll give it to my husband, ha, ha :)
I colored the little rat just slightly with my Copic pens and then die-cut using Die-namics Inside/Out Stitch Oval. I created the lover part of the card using an old Reprint text stamp, a part of a stencil with a heart that was sponged in red/pink Distress inks. I cut out some hearts from red glitter paper and arranged them over the rat. And that´s about it, I think.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!

I colored the rat up with my Copics and cut out by hand. Next, I used a couple of stenciles together with Distress Inks for the backgrounds, My Favourite Things - On the Diagonal and Dylusions - Dotted Flowers. I also added Diamond Stickles for a bit of sparkle and some clear bling stones.
