Hi crafty friends!
Today I´m popping in with a cute card to share, maybe for a birthday. I started with a digi image that I colored up with my Copic pens and some Glossy Accents.
Then I cut the image out using one Lawn Fawn Large Cross-Stitched Cicle Stackables die and created a panel that I popped up with some foam tape.To the left I added a paper strip that was made using red and black Distress inks and Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi´s Dots & Stripes Borders stencil. For the Congrats I used a Gummiapan die and the K-designs sentiment was first stamped and then white heat embossed. I finished my card with a few clear sequins.
Wishing everyone a happy day, and thanks for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Enjoy The Little Things...Guest Designing

onsdag 16 maj 2018

Hello friends!
I´m so glad you stopped by! Today I have the honor of guest designing with the talanted design team at Crafting By Designs. This weeks challenge theme is Enjoy the little Things, I hope you´d like to join along. Here is the project I created...
I made a pretty simple card using a Eline´s Huis stamp set, along with Distress inks and a couple of dies, the Memory Box Fresh Foliage and Die-Namics Inside&Out Diagonal Stitched Square. I layered the panel with foam tape for dimension. On the tea / coffee cup I added gold embossing pouder that was heated in, by the way, it was cut out by hand. I created the sentiment myself using my computer and finished of by adding three small flowers.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Please be sure to visit the Crafting By Designs to see all the fantastic projects that the talanted DT has created!
Hugs, Birgit

Hi crafty friends!
Today I have a birthday card to share that I´ve created for one of my grandchildren who will be three years old, I send a lot of love with this card!
I used a digi image that I colored up with my Copic pens, added some Glossy Accents and then cut out by hand. I layered the image with foam tape over a die-cut panel, I used Tim Holtz Alterations Mini Cabinet Card die. For the background, I used an old Reprint stencil with circles and some Distress inks. The sentiment stamp is from Rox Stamps. To finish the card, I added two red fabric hearts.
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have a wonderful Sunday!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello there crafters, thanks so much for stopping by!
Today´s post is for Muse:ChristmasVisions, where Kimberly is our muse, and for some other challenges too. 
 The image is from an old Inkadinkadoo stamp set, which is stamped and then gold heat embossed. The K-designs sentiment has also been heat embossed, but in copper. I used some foam tape to pop up the image and the sentiment. Next, I needed a background and found papers from Panduro in my way to big paper stash, that I used. Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitshed Scalloped Rectangle Stackables and Die-Namics Stitched Scallop basic Edges has also been used. I finished of with some twine.
That´s about it, I think.
Hugs, Birgit

Hello and Happy Sunday!
I have a card to share for this weeks colour challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches.

I used the Monster Morning stamp from Whipper Snapper Designs, colored it up with my Copic pens and cut it out by hand. For the background panel, I used the Budding Vine die from Tonic Studios and I adhered all the layers with foam tape to get some dimension. The sentiment was stamped with a Scrapfabriken stamp. I finished my card with a few pearls over the cup.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello there and welcome!
Today I have a slightly different card to show, I was in the mood for some watercolors and created this card, in my own style.
I used Tom Holtz Idea-ology Tissue Wrap and glued it to the cardbase before I went loose with my water colors, black acrylic paint and a white gel pen. I adhered a strip of washi tape and die-cut Memory Box Fresh Foliage out of cardstock and sponged the edges with green Distress ink. For the sentiment, I stamped a Vilda Stamps sentiment from the Grattistexter set in Coffee Archival Ink, cut it out with one Spellbinders Large Labels die and sponged it with Vintage Photo Distress ink. I foam mounted it and added a few black enamel dots to finish of my card.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit
