To A Very Special Person

fredag 28 april 2017

Hi everyone!
I´m back today with a card for The Paper Players and their sketch challenge (before the time runs out) to share.
I used an old La Blanche stamp on watercolor paper and Distress inks to create the image. I added Glossy Accents and Diamond Stickles to give more texture. And talking about texture, there is more in the background. I used an old favorite technique, colored in (in this case green) embossing paste and a stencil with hearts from Nellie's Choice.
The sentiment from SvenskaTextstämplar was stamped on black CS and then white heat embossed.
Okay, that´s all for today. I wish you all a nice weekend!
Hugs, Birgit

Oh Happy Day

torsdag 27 april 2017

Hi friends!
I have made another card where I used the cute pigs from My Favorite Things "Sow Much Cutiness" stamp set, they are absolutely wonderful. And it´s a really spring inspired card.
 For the background, I used an old favorite technique, colored in (in this case green) embossing paste and a stencil with hearts from Nellie's Choice. I stamped the sentiment on black CS and white heat embossed it , then I cut it out with a Joy Crafts Labels&Tags die. Next I die-cut the grass from a left over piece of paper and the Lawn Fawn "Scripty For You" words out of green CS and black foam for dimension. I finished of by adding a few sequins and some Glossy Accents.
So that´s it. Thank you very much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Sorry I Was So Pig-Headed

måndag 24 april 2017

Hello everyone!
I'm waiting for spring to speed up, it's cold and windy here with me and has been so for a long time now. Instead of being outside, I have created a card for Less is More - Stripe challenge.
I used the Sow Much Cutiness stamp set from My Favourite Things and the Dots&Stripes Borders stencil from Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi. The clouds was also die-cut with MFT dies. For the background and stripes I used Distress inks and the pig is colored with Copic pens. I also added Glossy Accents to some details.
That´s it for me, thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello there crafters!
Today I have a card for Tuesday Throwdown and their Photo Inspiration challenge...and some other challenges too.
I raised my flower box and found so many beautiful blue flowers there, so I made a whole basket full of them. First I created the background using Memory Box "Texture Reindrops" stencil and some blue ink splatters. I used some dies, first the basket which is from Impression Obsession, the Slender Leaves die from Memory Box and Craft Emotions Bows Rope die. The sentiment is a part from Stamping Bella´s Tiny Townie Birthday Party stamp set.
That´s all for today! Hope you like my card.
Hugs, Birgit

Happy Easter Monday!
I hope you´re still enjoying a lovely Easter weekend with good food and good company along with loved ones! I myself have a Christmas card to show today, inspired by Natasha Kara over at Muse:ChristmasVisions. 
Inspired by her card I searched in my stash and found this "Milton With Sledge" stamp from Wild Rose Studio and the "Decorative Lamp" stamp from Kaiserkraft. I used watercolor paper and a combination of Copic pens and watercolors to color up the image. I added 3D snow, Glossy Accents and some gold/silver glitter. I finished the panel of with the sentiment from Svenska Textstämplar. I made a frame in which the image then were attached into.
That´s all for today! As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Welcome Baby

torsdag 13 april 2017

Hello there crafters!
I´ve popped in for a super quick post just to share a Welcome Baby card created with a digi image from Nicecrane Designs. I've just been waiting for an opportunity to use this wonderful image that I´ve had in my computer for a while:) I have been blessed with a new grandson!
 I added a Reprint stamp and a "Baby Script" die-cut from Memory Box. I also created a stamped inside using Tim Holtz "Baby" stamps colored with Copic pens.
 "A beloved little person came to Earth tonight
Gives life a new meaning and the world a new treasure"
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful Easter weekend!

Have A Magical Day

måndag 10 april 2017

Hi crafty friends!
Today I´m sharing a card that can be used for easter but which could also be used for a birthday, for example. It also has a slightly masculine style, I think.
The bunny is die-cut with Tim Holtz Mini Bunny & Bow Set out of black Coredinationspaper and then sanded. I used the "Watches background" stamp from The Artistic Stamper for the background and the sentiment is a part of  the Penny Black "Magical Day"stamp set and was heat embossed in copper. I die-cut the bow out of craft cardstock with CraftEmotions Bows Rope & Raffia die set.
Okay, I think that´s about all. Thanks for stopping by today!
Hugs, Birgit
