Stay Cool

Hello there crafters!
Today I´m sharing a card created with the Eraser Technique which is the challenge over at Christmas Card Throwdown, since I never heard of it or tried it, I wanted to give it a try.
 I tore a few strips of paper and sponged them with graphite to create the snow, it has a little poor visibility on the photo but I hope you see it, I also used the "Snowball" stencil from My Favourite Things. I fixed with hair spray. But after I stamped and blurred the snowman from MFT´s "Frosty Friends" stamp set, I felt that I wanted to give it a little more body so I filled it with both Glossy Accents and sprinkled over loose glitter. All other coloring is made with my Copic pens. I created a frame using Lawn Fawn "Outside In Stitched Scalloped Rectangle" dies, I added snowflakes to it using the Hot Of The Press "Snowfall" stencil and heated in white embossing pouder. I have also used Lawn Fawn "Winter Big Scripty Words" stamp set together with the coordinated die and one Rox Stamps die.
Ok, that´s all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

A Big Hug On Your Birthday

onsdag 15 maj 2019

Hello and welcome!
 I have a Birthday card to share today where I have used one of the wonderful stamps from Tim Holtz "Bird Crazy" stamp set.
But first I started with the background, that was spread with embossing paste over the "Polka Dotty" stencil from Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi. I then sprinkled over Stampendous "Shabby White" embossing pouder and heated in to get the puffy those pouders! Next, I colored the bird with my Copic pens and stamped the Rox Stamps sentiment. I used foam tape to give dimension and finished of by adding a flower and a golden ribbon.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Hugs On Birthday

torsdag 9 maj 2019

Hello there!
I hope you are having a great week. Personally, I think they go way too fast. For today´s card, I have used a super cute stamp and die set from Nellie´s Choice, DADA Die with clear stamp "Hugs".
I stared by cutting the frame and the leafs using Tonic Studios Budding Vine die and a couple of Lawn Fawn dies. I adhered the frame with foam tape to give dimension over a piece of leftover green paper from my way too big stash;) All coloring is made with my Copic pens. The word Hug was cut with a Gummiapan die and the K-designs sentiment was white heat embossed. I finished of by adding a few purple beads.
Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Have A Holly-Jolly Christmas

måndag 6 maj 2019

Hello friends!
I have a new Christmas card to share today. I used the Holly Jolly Critters stamp from Penny Black and colored it up with watercolors.
 For the stamped background, I first masked the critters and then used an old Reprint tree stamp together with Distress inks. I splattered over some white ink and added Diamond Stickles to the lantern and the star. I also added 3D snow, small red beads and white Nuvo Crystal drops.
I hope you like todays card, thank you for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Have A Wonderful Day

fredag 3 maj 2019

Happy Friday everyone!
 For today's card I have used Docraft's Xcut cut and emboss folder, and some coloring with Copic pens and stamp pads.
I softly blended the contours and dress with Copic pens and added Star Dust Stickles to the butterflies. I sponged the card edges under the panel with cherry pink ink and stamped the Bildmålarna sentiment in black. I couldn't help but add a small ribbon bow at the dress although it may ruin the simple card design.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a great weekend!
Hugs, Birgit
