Guest Designer For Inkspirational Challenges

lördag 25 mars 2017

Hi crafty friends!
I´m very happy to share that I´ve been invited as guest designer by Marina for Inkspirational Challenges to join the talanted design team, I´m truly honored to be invited! 
This time it´s Photo Inkspiration challenge...´s what I came up with
A card to which I found inspiration from both colors and motifs in that photo. First, I masked and sponged a panel with Distress ink, then I used the "Watches background" stamp from The Artistic Stamper and stamped with a part of it in the panel too. I added some tiny black splatters by using an old stamp after taking of the mask. The bunny it created by adding silver tape on cardstock and die-cut out with Tim Holtz Mini Bunny & Bow Set, then run through a texture fades embossing folder, then I added black acrylic paint and sanded a bit after drying. For the hearts I used the "soft caress" die from Penny Black who also got both color and stamping. The sentiment is a part of  the Penny Black "Magical Day"stamp set and was heat embossed in copper.
Okay, I think that's enough about this card.
The design team over at Inkspirational have a lot more projects where you can get even more inspiration, take a look HERE.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

For A Very Special Person

onsdag 22 mars 2017

Hello there!
I just got in my hand some for me, new products, and of course I want to try them immediately. For this card I used an embossing folder from the Docraft/Xcut  - "Dress" that both die-cut and emboss at the same time, so fun!
I Copic colored the butterflies and shaded the dress a little. I found a vintage image in my stash and used it together with the sentiment stamp from Svenskatextstämplar. I added the panel with foam adhesive and finished of with Star Dust Stickles and a few pearls.
That´s all for me...wishing all of you a happy day!
Hugs, Birgit

Hi there!
I´m back with a card that I´ve created for Less is More and their washi tape challenge.
I don´t use washi tape so very often and I don´t own so many either. However, I have still managed to do this with help of  washi tape and one of Tims "Bird Crazy" dies. I adhered the bird with foam tape over the background that I created using Distress inks and a stencil also from Tim Holtz. The sentiment stamp is from Gummiapan.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Happy Saturday!
Today I have a card created for CAS Colours&Sketches where Patricia has drawn up a sketch for us to follow.

That´s all for today. As always thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you all have a great weekend!

Special Friends Mean So Much

onsdag 15 mars 2017

Hello everyone and happy Wednesday!
I am so happy to have you here with me! This is my post for today where I have used Penny Black´s "Mimi´s Love" stamp set and some different dies.
She is colored with Copics and some parts is highlighted with Glossy Accents. Next, I started die-cutting the background with the MFT Blueprint 23 die set and sponged the pieces with Distress inks. Then I stamped around the edges with an old Pinkpaislee "Butterfly Garden" stamp. I created a frame with MFT "Inside/out Stitch Oval" dies and popped it, and Mimi with foam tape. I also adhered die-cutted Memory Box "Small Flock of Doves" and Penny Black "Soft Caress" hearts.
That´s all for today! As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Birthday Card

måndag 13 mars 2017

Hello everyone!
I´ve popped in for a super quick post just to share a card created for the color challenge, green and white over at The Paper Players. I´m also linking up with a few other challenges too.
I used a sentiment stamp from Svenskatextstämplar "Wishing you a day with nice gifts, beautiful flowers, sweet birthday cake and warm congratulations!" All the leaves are made with Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 "Lovely Leaves" stencil and a couple of Distress inks. The butterfly is from a napkin, adhered to cardstock and cut out by hand.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
Hugs, Birgit

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

onsdag 8 mars 2017

Hello everyone and happy Wednesday!
Today's card is for Muse: ChristmasVisions where Cornelia Wenokor is our muse, and I´m linking up with some other challenges too.
I decided to use this little Santa from Vildastamps which I think is so adorable. I did a simple Copic coloring and added Glossy Accents to the hood. Then I proceeded with the lover part where I used a Prima Marketing stencil and Distress inks to create the wall, at the top I added some snow glitter. I tied a Tim Holtz Metal Word Band with natural twine, where I first rubbed in black acrylic paint so the text shows a little better.
That´s all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit
