Congratulations Card

lördag 17 februari 2018

Hello and welcome!
Today I have a card for CAS Colours&Sketches where I have used their sketch.

For my card, I used the "Free Style Florals" stamp set from Mama Elephant together with the coordinating dies and Distress inks. But first I started with the cardbase where I used My Favourite Things "On the Diagonal" stencil and sponged on blue Distress inks. The Rox Stamps sentiment was die cut out of black foam for dimension and I finished of by adding a few pearls/sequins.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
Hugs, Birgit

To A Special Person On A Special Day

torsdag 15 februari 2018

Hi there!
Today's card is quite simple, I want the beautiful Whimsy Stamps image and its colors to be in focus. The stamp is called "Well Rounded Elephant" and I used my Copic pens and some glitter Stickles to coloring.
I created a frame and stamped the sentiment from Svenska Textstämplar on it. I die cut the flower and the bow using Memory Box "Prim Poppy" and Craft Emotions dies, I colored them gently in pastel colors and finished of by adding a few pearls.
Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a great day!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello there crafters!
I've spent some time in my craft room today creating a card for Muse:ChristmasVisions. I had a picture in my head how my card would look like but that´s not what came out in the end, I stuck to the layout and the trees anyway.

I started with some watercolor paper. I created a background using Distress inks and cut out all the other elements using some stamps and dies: Tim Holtz "Holiday Joy" set and "Snowman Scene", Poppy Stamps "Forest Hills Landscape" and "Forest Deer", Memory Box "Evergreen Landscape". I colored and shaded them with watercolor and splattered over white ink. After assembling all the pieces with foam tape for dimension I added some 3D snow, twine and a metal word band fastened with brads.
That´s about it, I think. As always thanks so much for stopping by!

For You, My Heart

torsdag 8 februari 2018

Hi everyone!
Today´s card is round and I can hardly remember when I did such one. I got my inspiration from Make My Monday, they have a challenge called "Going Around In Circles" so I thought it was fun trying to stick to it.
 In addition, I picked up an old Magnolia stamp which have not been used for a long time and colored it up with my Copics. I cut the image out by hand and created a background using a Nellie Snellen "Hearts" stencil, Distress inks and Spellbinders Nestabilities "Heart Circles" die set. I also die-cut the bow using a Craft Emotions die, and for the sentiment a Lawn Fawn "Scripty For You" die. Old Prima Meadow Lark papers was used. Assembling the card I popped the image and the heart circle with foam tape for a bit of dimension. I added a small silver bird charm, a red heart, lace and finally finished of with some glitter Stickles and Glossy Accents.
That´s all for today! As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Happy Monday!
Popping in with a card to share. I thought playing along with the Resist It challenge over at Simon Monday and now I see that time is running out so I have to hurry up.
For the resist, I thought clear heat embossing. In order to accomplish that, I grabbed the first embossing folder I got in my hand among my embossing folders, and that was Crafters Companion´s Basket Weave. I don´t understand why I bought it because it's so hard to use I think. Anyway, after clear heat embossing the pattern I colored the rest up with brown ink and used it as a background on my card. I have also used Katzelkraft "Les rats des villes" stamp set, I colored the rat with my Copics, Memory Box "Fresh Foliage" die and Lawn Fawn "Grassy Border" die together with Distress inks. I adhered an old Graphic 45 paper piece with brads and added...flowers, when did I use that last? I finished my card with some of Tim Holtz chitchat words.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello there crafters!
Today I have a card for Muse:ChristmasVisions where Chriss Blagrave is our Muse with this card:
I have tried to stick to the layout and used the material I had in my stash. This is how it turned out:
I started by stamping the Vilda Stamps sentiment in black and then clear heat embossed it. Next, I stamped the Wreath using Le Crea´Combi Stamps with Distress inks. I stamped the bows on another paper, colored them up, cut out and then added Glossy Accents. Then I stamped the bird from Crafty Secrets "Bird Notes" set and here I used my Copic pens instead to color with. After I cut the bird out too, I adhered the Bows and the bird with foam tape to create dimenson. For a finishing touch, I added pearls and a few sequins.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

For A Beary Special Friend

måndag 29 januari 2018

Hi there!
Another weekend has flown by and...It´s Monday again. Anyway, I have a card for CAS(E) this Sketch to share with you today, that sketch really inspired me. I have also seen inspiring challenges using buttons, so I took out my buttonbox and grabbed one big beautiful to have on my card.

I used My Favourite Things "Beary Special Birthday" stamp set and my Copics to color the image. I cut it out by hand and I also added some Star Dust glitter Stickles. Next, I die-cut some tags and sponged them using Distress inks together with Tim Holtz "Plaid" stencil. A background was created by using Sizzix "China" embossing folder. I then layered everything up and glued/taped it into place, I finished by adding two clear sequins.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Hugs, Birgit
