A Deer Surprise

tisdag 25 oktober 2016

Hi everyone!
I´m back again to share a new card for Muse:ChristmasVisions challenge.
This time, I only have used one stamp and that is for the sentiment. Except that I have only been using dies as - Tims Alterations Prancing Deer, Memory Box Frosted Christmas Trio and Roxstamps God Jul die. I also created a shaded background with the Polka Dotty stencil from Studio 490, and some Distress inks of course.
Thanks for the visit and have a great day!
Hugs, Birgit

Hi everyone!
It continues to rain and be grayed outside, so I take the chance to create some more Christmas cards. Unfortunately, it´s also yet another card with lower picture quality because, it´s difficult to see the details in the white die cut cardstock.
To begin, I first used a Dixi Crafts paper from last years collection as a cardbase. Then I cut out the Cottage with a Wild Rose Studio die. In the left lover corner I cut the sentiment out with a Mandys die so that the background shows through. I adhered it with foam for added dimension. Next, I colored up the reindeer from My Favourite Things "Merry Everything" stamp set with my Copics and die cut with the companion die. I also added Glossy Accents to the scarf and some glitter to the ornaments. The sentiment to the right is from the same stamp set. Okay, that´s all for today.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
Hugs, Birgit

It´s Bean A While

torsdag 20 oktober 2016

 Hello there crafters!
Halloween is the theme that applies at almost all challenge blogs right now, therefore it felt so good when I found the Coffee challenge over at Addicted to CAS, I got inspired to create this project. I apologize for the poor light when shooting, it's so gray outside so the photos are not so good as I would like.
I started by cuting out the Memory Box "Coffee on the Go" die out of  a piece of old K-designs paper and adhered it with foam to create dimension.
Next I stamped the frame from the StampingScrappings "Fancy Accents" set in black and then clear heat embossed it. In the middle I stamped the sentiment with "Coffee" Archival Ink and heat embossed that too. I finished of by tying a piece of natural twine around.
I´m so glad you could stop by today and I hope you enjoyed today´s project!
Hugs, Birgit

Merry Christmas, This Year Again...

tisdag 18 oktober 2016

Hello everyone!
I hope you are well. Here with me, it has now become autumn, outside my window it´s gray, misty and it's even raining a little bit. So I'm working on with my Christmas cards ... soon it's Christmas;)
This one is for Muse:ChristmasVisions where Chriss Blagrave is our Muse this week. I´ve watercolored a cute mouse from a Panduro stamp set combined with a Inkido sentiment. This is a truly OLC card, but I admit that I´ve added a little Glossy Accents to the heart and gold glitter Stickles to the star.
Okay, that's all for today. 
Hugs, Birgit

Cupcake Inspirations Surprise Sweetie

söndag 16 oktober 2016

Hi everyone!
I am so super excited because I´m a Surprise Sweetie for Cupcake Inspirations today. I´ve had a wonderful time playing with this weeks color challenge.
This weeks sponsor is:  Waffle Flower
For my first card I just cut out an oval from the front panel with one of MFT´s "Inside/Out Oval" dies and backed the panel with another piece of paper, which I made with Dylusions "Leaves" stencil and some red and pink Distress inks. I then colored up my little monster with Copics and cut out, as well as the sentiments from the Your Next Stamp "Silly Monsters" set.
For my second card I started stamping with the Altenew "Beautiful Day" set on watercolor paper and then spritzed it with water so that the colors blend. I also sprinkled over some paint with a brush. Then I stamped the Gummiapan sentiment in black and cut out the "hello" twice using a Mama Elephant die and layered them a little overlapped. I finished of by adding some Glossy Accents and a few ruby red enamel dots.
Stop by the Cupcake Inspirations for the challenge details and to play along!
As always thanks for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit
