True Love

fredag 30 januari 2015

Hi there!
It's Friday already and the whole of January has passed, almost! How did it happen, I wonder?:) I don´t think anyone have missed that it is Valentine's Day in February, the blogs are full of Valentine´s cards and even I have done a couple.

Here is one that I love myself...those eyes say it all!

I colored the image from Nicecrane Designs with Copics and cut it out. Then I adhered it over a heart made by coloring in one of the embossing folders from Sizzix Scallop Heart Doily Set with Distress ink and then run it through the machine. Thereafter it was cut out and laid over papers from Fabscraps. The Autumn Leaves sentiment was stamped and embossed on vellum.
Okay that´s all for me...have a great weekend!
Hugs, Birgit

Happy Thursday everyone!
My creation today is rather simple as I let the Memory Box Pixie Flower die do all the hard work for me. The background is a piece of floral vellum paper, and the Inkido sentiment is also stamped and gold embossed on vellum.

Ok, it's not much more to say about this card.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have wonderful rest of the week!
Hugs, Birgit

Welcome to a bit of romance!
I´ve used a little stamp from Prima Marketing and colored it up with my Copics. I then cut it out using  the "out of the box" technique.

I added some Glossy Accents on the hearts and stamped a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps Film Strip Sentiments collection.
Thanks so much for your visit here today!

söndag 25 januari 2015

Hi there!
I hope you are having a great weekend! I felt it was time to create a masculine, vintage inspired card. So I started with a Prima Paintables and went loose with embossing paste, stencils and various sprays.

The Paper Artsy Minis stamp was clear heat embossed, then cut out and adhered over some odd things and leftovers I found in my stash.

I used sentiment stamps from Heidi Swapp and some Tim Holtz ChitChat word stickers.

It all became some kind of masculine chabby chic/vintage card...I think;)
Thanks so much for stopping by!

tisdag 20 januari 2015

Hello and welcome to my blog today!
I decided it was time to make a youth card in a little tougher style (ok then, not so tough maybe) and I went on the friendship theme.

I started with a stamp from Norsk Stempelblad AS for the image and followed up with the Fluorishes sentiment stamp. I added some leftover paper pieces and a metal ornament. I think that was it:)
Thanks so much for your visit today, and I hope to see you soon again!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello there!
I´m back after a little mini vacation and a week's illness, the latter I have not quite been recovered from yet but I've still managed a short time at the craft table.

 One would think that I had done the last Christmas card for a while but I had not had time to clean up everything after December's cardmaking so this is what became of what was there.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hugs, Birgit

Someting New

onsdag 7 januari 2015

Hi there!
I´m so thrilled and honored to share that I have been invited to join along Inky Impressions as their guest for the first Something New challenge of 2015!!! Please be sure to visit the Inky Impressions challenge site to see all the inspiration that the talanted DT has to share! 

This challenge is absolutely perfect because I got grandparent for the first time to a little boy on New Year's Day:)) I colored up Lizzie´s Bundle Of Joy stamp with my Copics and combined it with pretty old patterned papers from ny stash.

The sentiment is from K-designs and says -  A child is a miracle well worth waiting for. The biggest and the best thing a mother and father can get. - but of course it rhymes in Swedish;)
 Many thanks for stopping by...I hope you have a great start of 2015!
Hugs, Birgit
