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!

My Favourite

söndag 15 april 2018

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!

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

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.

söndag 8 april 2018

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.

So Loved From The First Moment ...

torsdag 5 april 2018

Hello there crafters!
Today I have an easelcard to show you, it was a while since I did such a thing but I really like it. I used Whimsy Stamps "Love You Slow Much" stamp for the image and my Copics to color it up.
I also added some glitter and Glossy accents to the image. Then, I framed it using circle dies, old designer papers and black foam for dimension. I created the sentiments myself using my computer and adhered them together with some hearts that I die-cut out of corrugated cardboard and some leftover papers. I finished by adding a few bling stones.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!

On Baptism Day

måndag 2 april 2018

Hi crafty friends! 
I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend! I have no Easter card to show today, but something completely different, a little girl should be baptized and this card is for her.
I chose to color up a couple of the images from My Favorite Things "Beary Special Birthday" stamp set with my Copics, I also added Glossy Accents and white gel pen. For the background, I choose a light shimmering silver white cardstock, die-cut the heart and then run it thru the Gemstone embossing folder from We R Memory Keepers. I love how three-dimensional it becomes! Inside the heart, I placed a piece of beautiful glittering designer paper. The sentiment stamp is from Gummiapan. To finish of I added a few enamel dots, a ribbon and sequins.
Have a great day and thanks so much for visiting!

Have A Wonderful Birthday

onsdag 28 mars 2018

Hi crafty friends!
Today I´m sharing a Birthday card using the Flying Boy image from Sami Stamps. I colored it up with my Copics and cut it out by hand. 
Next, I created the background using watercolor paper and blue Distress inks, I also splattered some water over and dried away. Then I used the Large Cross-Stitched Circle Stackables dies from Lawn Fawn to cut out the circle, and I also stamped the Gummiapan sentiment. I adhered the panel and the image with foam tape to give dimension. To finish the card, I added Glossy Accents to the propeller.
Wishing everyone a happy day!

Forest Scene

söndag 25 mars 2018

Hi friends!
Today I have tried me on the Muse:ChristmasVisions challenge where Chriss is our muse with an inspiration card, here is my take on it.
I chose to use the Forest Frame die from Sizzix and gold glitter paper. But first I created the background using some different Distress inks in red and pink colors, I also splattered over water and white ink. Now, I thought it was too much gold glitter so I die-cut all the animals and hearts again in white and added with foam tape to calm the scene and also to create some dimension. Next, I die cut the Mandys sentiment in gold cardstock as well as black foam and glued together. I finished my card by adding white Pearl Maker.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!

Easter Card

torsdag 22 mars 2018

Hello and Happy Thursday friends!
For today´s card I have used the sweet Bambino stamp from Whipper Snapper Designs. I paired it with two stencils from Studio 490 Wendy Wecchi "From The Garden" and Crafters Workshop "Mini Tile Texture".
The talk bubble was created with one Joy Crafts "Labels & Tags" die and for the sentiment I used a Rox Stamps die. I framed the image and adhered it to the background created with Reminisce "Spring Tulips"paper, the egg strip is from the same paper. The card was finished with a few light green pearls.
As always thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!

Hey there!
I´ve created one more Easter card using an old Alota Rubber Stamp and colored it up with Copic pens, I also added Glossy Accents and Star Dust Stickles.
I stamped a Panduro sentiment over the image and below I attached paper ribbon and a bow made with one Craft Emotions die. And that´s about it, I think.

fredag 16 mars 2018

Hi everyone!
Today I´m sharing a card for Easter, that I created using a super cute digi image, I colored it up with my Copic pens and I also added Glossy Accents to the flower.
 The sentiment stamp is from Reprint and the grass was made with the Lawn Fawn Grass Border die. Then I amused myself by cutting out eggs and the butterfly out of a few different designer papers. As final details I added some small velor balls and a twine bow. That´s about it, I think...the front panel was raised with foam tape.
Okay, thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful weekend!

Good Morning!
Today I´ve created a card in black, white, silver and metal. That is, the butterfly is of metal that I colored with different Inka Gold colors.
I started by stamping the La Blanche flower and clear heat embossed it. Then I added Glossy Accents on the petals for a beautiful glossy effect which unfortunately is not visible on the photo. I backed the image with silver cardstock.
Next, I used the We R Memory Keepers "Gemstone" embossing folder on a piece of paper that I first colored with Distress Stain "Brushed Pewter", love that. The congratulations word was cut with a Gummiapan die and the black/white background paper was found in my way to big stash.

It's Your Day Today!

söndag 4 mars 2018

Hello there crafters!
Today I have a card that I started a while ago and finally finished. I wanted to use some old but fun material, including the bottle caps that were so popular a few years ago and the canvas resist, which I have sprayed colored here. A little vintage inspired yet with a simple touch.
The sentiment stamp, and the Congrats die is from Gummiapan. I also used some sort of craft resist paper that I first crumpled and then flattened it and used to the background. Lace, a heart brad and enamel dots finished of. 
Okay, that's all for today I think.
Thanks for looking!

Hi there cardmaker friends!
Here with me, we have real winter right now, it is very cold, and it´s both blowing and snowing. Brrr... here´s a quite clean and simple card for Muse:Christmas Visions, I´ve just gone a little more bold in the background colors than Lindsey.

I die cut the Cottage from Wild Rose Studio and stamped the Kristinas Scrapbooking sentiment in black. Then I added stitches below using one Memory Box Straight Stitches die. For the background I used old Crafty Individuals paper. One single enamel dot and Platinum Stickles in the windows finished of my card.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!
Take care!

Card With A Flap To Open

onsdag 21 februari 2018

Hello friends!
Just a quick post today with a CAS card made using the fabulous "Diamond Plate & Revited Metal" embossing folders from Tim Holtz. I did it with a flap opening where a greeting can be written.
I sponged the lover embossed part with black distress ink. The door clapper from a Crafty Individuals stamp set were heat embossed in Stampendous Aged Silver mixed with some copper. I then cut it out by hand and adhered it as well as the sentiment with foam tape for dimension.

måndag 19 februari 2018

Hello friends and crafters!
I´m dropping in to share a card I created after getting inspired by Fairy Tale´s challenge - Use mini-stamps, and the sketch over at Sketch Saturday.
In my stash I have Tim Holtz "Tiny Things" stamp set but I never seem to find the right opportunity to use them, and I have a little bad conscience about it. Now I took hoold of it and here's my card now, I hope you like it. I also used the "Fly By Friends" stamp set from My Favourite Things for the sentiment and the little butterfly. A coat of Glassy Accents and Stickles are added for glitter and shine. Old papers from my stash was used and I finished of by adding a few pearls and sequins.
Wishing everyone a happy day! Thanks for looking!

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!

tisdag 13 februari 2018

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!

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.

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.

I started with the Flower Fairies stamp set from Whimsy Stamps and colored one of them up with my Copics. I also added some Glossy Accents and Star Dust Stickles. Then I cut it out with a Lawn Fawn Large Cross-Stitched Circle die. I choose the Tonic Studio Budding Vine die to create a background and I love how it turned out. Next, I cut the Gummiapan sentiment out of black foam to get dimension, I also added foam tape when I adhered the image for the same reason.

Hi everyone!

I used the Birthday Cake stamp from STAMPlorations and colored it up in black and gold, I also added white Nuvo Crystal Drops, Glossy Accents and Platinum Stickles before I cut it out by hand. For the background I used two stencils from Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi Dots&Stripes Border and Polka Dotty. Then I stamped the sentiment on vellum and gold heat embossed it, die-cut the Tim Holtz Celebrate word and adhered it together with a little twine bow.
