Merry Christmas

tisdag 24 april 2018

Hi everyone!
Today's card is mainly for Muse:ChristmasVisions but also for some other challenges. Lindsey's card is really a challenge for me and I have thought a lot before this was done.
 For my card I used Tim Holtz Alterations Holiday Joý stamp/die set. I wanted some glitter so after a little bit of trying I decided to use Shabby Blue embossing pouder from Stampendous and it turned out great, I think. For the sentiment I used a Mandys die, and for the backgraound I used some old Dixi Craft papers. For that little extra I added a little twine bow and red berries.
That was all for today, thanks for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Happy Sunday!
We have had a wonderful sunny weekend here with me, I love spring ... it's my best season! I´m popping in with a card to share, and I´m playing along with a few blog challenges.
I used Penny Black´s Mimi´s Love stamp set for my image and colored it up with Copic pens. The background was created with Distress inks and an old stripe stencil. I then die cut the sentiment from Gummiapan and added it together with a few clear sequins and Nuvo Crystal Drops.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!

To A Very Special Person

onsdag 18 april 2018

Hi there!
For today´s card I have pulled out some old PION design papers to create this vintage and spring inspired card.
I´m also using a couple of dies, the Memory Box "Fresh Foliage" and a bow from CraftEmotions. I´v added a frame that I created using the We R Memory Keepers "Gemstone" embossing folder and Vintage Photo Distress ink. The sentiment stamp is from Svenska Textstämplar. Nuvo  Crystal Drops adds nice accent to the card.
That´s about it, I think. Wishing you all a happy day!
Hugs, Birgit

My Favourite

Hello there!
Happy Sunday! I´m popping in to share a card created for this weeks Muse Card challenge...and some other challenges as well.
I chose the Freestyle Florals stamp set from Mama Elephant for my card. First, I stamped and heat embossed the parts in white and clear embossing pouder before I watercolored them up. Next, I cut them out with the coordinating dies and adhered some parts with foam tape for dimension. I used a You Do stamp for the sentiment, and I die cut the Hello from Mama Elephant using foam and cardstock. I also added some Nuvo Crystal Drops to finish with.
As alway thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

On Mothers Day!

fredag 13 april 2018

Hello Everyone!
Today I have a quite simple flower card for Mothers Day to share. I´m playing along with this week´s Pearls or Mother´s Day Theme challenge at Brown Sugar, Mothers Day at CAS on Friday and Make Your Mark at Addicted to Stamps and More.
I used Distress inks together with stamps from Docrafts "Trad Floral" set and Stamp "Timbres Clair" set. The K-designs sentiment was stamped in black and then clear heat embossed. I finished my card with a few light purple sequins.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Congratulations, Enjoy Your Day!

Hi there!
Today I have a card for the color challenge at The Paper Players .
For my card I cut out a girl from an old PION design paper by hand and adhered her with foam tape to a background created with stamps from Pinkpaislee´s Butterfly Garden set. I mixed a couple of blue and green Distress inks to get the right color. I chose to stamp the Panduro sentiment in the same color too. I finished my card with some clear sequins.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello there crafters!
Happy Sunday! It´s a new challenge and a new muse card created by Cornelia over at Muse:ChristmasVisions, and I have a card to share using a lot of green that I love.
For my card I started with two My favourite Things stamp set, Merry Everything and Santa´s Elves. I colored up with Copic pens and cut out with the coordinated dies. I stamped the sentiments on black CS and white heat embossed them, the one in the speech bubble is from Scrapfabriken. I added foam tape to add dimension and help the reindeers to pop. I finished my card with some bling stones.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
