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

söndag 12 november 2017

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

Happy Sunday!
Today I´m popping in with a sweet card to share. And I´m so glad you have stopped by my blog today to check it out.
For my card I used Kaiser Craft´s Tis The Season Postcard Book and colored the image up with Copic pens. The motive with the sweet birds destined for Christmas, but I intend to give it away before that so I gave them a more wintery look. I also added some Glossy Accents and Diamond Stickles. Then, I die-cut the Moa Pyssel sentiment out of black foam for dimension. There you have it.
Once again thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Bad Ideas Make The Best Memories

fredag 3 november 2017

Hi there!
I've become so in love with the stamps from Katzelkraft lately that I wanted to do another one using the cat stamp, this time it´s created for a man in mind.
First I colored the image up with my Copics, I also added some Glossy Accents and Gold Stickles to the eyes. Next, I used the Blueprint 23 die set from My Favourite Things together with old Glitz "Sunshine in my Soul" designer papers to create the card. I sponged the edges a bit with Hickory Smoke Distress ink. That´s it!
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a nice weekend everyone!
Hugs, Birgit

To Daddy On Your Day

söndag 29 oktober 2017

Hi there!
Today I´m sharing a project I created for my Dad using the sketch over at CAS Colours and Sketches. It is a couple of weeks left for Father's Day, I know, but it feels good to be ready for it.
I started with the background panel using a Provocraft embossing folder. Next, I die-cut the Joy Crafts balloons and colored them up with watercolors, then I added Glossy Accents for a really shiny look.The sentiment from K-designs was stamped, then white heat embossed and adhered with foam tape. I finished the card off with a Craft Emortions die-cut bow and a few pearls.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit
