Happy Christmas

onsdag 22 november 2017

Hello there!
I am back with another Christmas card - again, I am so in Christmas mode now. Green is my favourite color for Christmas and this combo with a little blue and red is just perfect, I think.
My starting point was the lovely Reindeer With Birdie stamp from Stampingbella, I just had to use this adorable stanp. I colored it up with my Copics and added some glitter Stickles. At the bottom I added 3D snow and sprinkled over loose glitter before it had dried. Then I created a frame and a background using a couple of square dies and paper from Lemon Craft - Christmas Carols 6x6 stack. I created a little tag using a sentiment stamp from the Woodware Large Snowman Bauble set and tied it with twine and red berries.
Thanks for joining me today!

Christmas Tag

tisdag 21 november 2017

Hi there!
I'm back with another Christmas tag, this time in my favorite color green and combined it with gold. It looks a little big on the photo maybe but is in fact about: 9-10 cm.
First I used two circle dies in different sizes to make a round frame base. To cut the wreath out I used the Memory Box Frostyville Wreath die and for the heart Tim Holtz Alterations Mini Hearts set. I stamped the text from Gummiapan, added a bit gold twine and tied a simple ribbon bow. That´s about it I think.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

My First Christmas

lördag 18 november 2017

Hello there crafters!
It is time for a new challenge over at Muse:ChristmasVisions for The 25 Days of Christmas Tags, this time you have to create a Christmas or Winter-themed tag using snow in some way, here is mine.
I have used a stamp set from Joy Crafts where this cutie can be found, I colored it up with my copic pens and used a Snowfall stencil from Hot Of The Press together with Iced Spruce Distress ink. I also added some Glossy Accents and Star Dust Stickles.
At the bottom I added 3D snow and sprinkled over loose Glitter before it had dried. To finish my tag I added a piece of ribbon and a few sequins.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!

December 24th - With The Wish Of A Merry Christmas

onsdag 15 november 2017

Hello there crafters!
I am popping in with a card to share. I am playing along with The Paper Players - White on White, Craftyhazelnut´s Christmas - Anything Goes/Reindeer, Addicted to CAS - Bows and Simply Create Too - Clean and Simple.
I decided to take advantage of the fact that white paper doesn´t always have the same whiteness, although it´s always called white when I buy it. I have used several dies, Tim Holtz Alterations "Prancing Deer", Memory Box "Evergreen Landscape", "Frosted Christmas Trio", "Truly Gifted" and Mama Elephant Edge die. The Scrapfabriken sentiment was heat embossed in silver. I layered the die-cuts to add some dimension and for the bow I used glitter white cardstock. To finish my card I added a few white enamel dots from my stash.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Hello everyone!
I'm working on with my Christmas cards and here's another one for Muse:ChristmasVisions and I've tried to get all Cornelia's elements on my card too as you can see.

I have used two stamp set from My Favourite Things together with coordinating Die-namic dies to create this, Merry Everything and Santa´s Elves. I had a fun time to color them up with my Copic pens and where I also added some glitter Stickles and Nuevo Crystal Drops. I do like when it sparkles a bit about the Christmas cards. For the sentiment I used a Mandy´s die.
Thank you to everyone who has dropped by to visit!
Hugs, Birgit

Hi everyone!
Here I have created a card for this weeks challenge Holiday Pines over at The Paper Players. I have used the die Pinecone Frame from Memory Box and backed it with brown leftover papers.
I then cut out some branches using Tim Holtz Alterations Holiday Greens dies and sponged them with green Distress inks. The sentiment from Svenska Textstämplar was first stamped and then gold heat embossed. I finished of  by adding a few gold sequins and a little Star Dust Stickles glitter on the branch.
Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a great day!

Coffee The Most Important Meal Of The Day.

tisdag 7 november 2017

Hello there crafters!
For today, I have a card with a different folding to show. Sometimes it's fun to try something new and when I saw this Panel Pull-Out card at Splicoaststampers I wanted to try it out immediately.
It was a bit difficult to take photos so the folding can be seen well, please follow the link above for more details if you want to try it out too. I´ve used old Authentique papers from the Remembrance Collection and the Coffee on the Go die from Memory Box. The Kristinas Scrapbooking sentiment was stamped in Coffee Archival Ink from Ranger. For the beans I used a part of an old stamp which I unfortunately do not know where it comes from anymore. Okay, that´s it I think.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Hugs, Birgit
