Hello crafters!
I´m back and sharing a card for Less is More where "Thread" is the item to use in this weeks recipe challenge.
I have used one of the dies from My Favourite Things "Stitched Scallop Basic Edges" set, and then stitched by hand through the holes. Next I die cut the "congrats" sentiment with a Moa Pyssel die and adhered it with foam tape for dimension, I backed it with old Inkido newspaper print paper. The spool with thread is from an old Marianne Design Eline´s Winter Huis stamp set, I colored it with  Copics and finished the card by adding some Glossy Accents to the spool.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
Hugs, Birgit

Hi friends!
Today I have a card in shabby chic/flower power style to share, where I have used a piece of fabric instead of designer paper. I must say it's been a while since I made a card with flowers and other embellishments.
I used Memory Box "Straight Stitches" dies to create the background to...the car which is made with the Lawn Fawn "Home for the Holidays" stamps set. I colored up with my Copics and some Glossy Accents. The sentiment is stamped with a Panduro stamp. Okay that´s all for me, I think you can see how the card is built up.
Thanks for your visit here today!
Hugs, Birgit

Hello there crafters!
It's always fun to create cards for Muse:ChristmasVisions, you never know what´s coming up and this week it´s a wonderful and fun card by Cornelia Wenokor:)
My card is almost a copy of her card except that I have replaced the penguin against this cute digi dog image. I used the same trees from Tim Holtz as she, except that I used the stamp instead of the embossing folder. After stamping I clear heat embossed them and created the shadows by adding some gray watercolor. The dog is colored with Copics, Glossy Accents and Diamond Stickles. I also added a little 3D snow and finished of with some rhinestones.
I hope you will have a nice weekend and as always, thanks for visiting my blog today!
Hugs, Birgit

Fairy Wishes

onsdag 21 september 2016

Hello there!
 Thank you so much for dropping by my blog. I am very happy to share today´s card created with a beautiful Lavinia Stamp I just got in my hand.
First I stamped and heat embossed the fairy on watercolor paper, then I painted the background with mostly blue and purple watercolors. I thought that there must be some glitter, so I gave the wings and flowers a bit of  Star Dust Stickles. Next I tore off a piece of white cardstock, sponged the edge with black Distress ink and placed it under her. At the top I stamped and white heat embossed the sentiment on a piece of leftover paper. I added some clear sequins to finish of the project.
I hope you have a lovely day!
Hugs, Birgit!

Hi everyone!
When I saw the Diamonds theme for this week´s Less is More challenge, I was a little hesitant to give it a try. And I don´t know if the result is a little too finished for that challenge, even if I tried to ceep it simple.
Anyway, I hope you like this. I have used Studio 490 Wendy Vecchis Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend stencil and white Embossing Paste to the panel. Once dry, I added Distress inks in some brown colors with my blending tool. The Rox Stamps sentiment is white heat embossed on black cardstock. I added die cuts made with Memory Box dies, Fresh Foliage and Prim Poppy. I finished of with a few pearls to add the bling factor.
That´s it from me, have a great day!
Hugs, Birgit

Hi there crafters!
Today I have a new card for Muse:ChristmasVisions and this week's challenge by Chriss Blagrave, where she has been using yarn for her card.
I got an idea that I could use one of Spellbinders Shapeabilities Nested Lacey Pennants dies to create something with holes, where I could thread something thru. Ok done, now the question was what I should thread through the holes and I found some old paper twine in different colors that I think got perfect. It appears not so good on the photo, but I have used a Rox Stamps die on white glitter paper for the sentiment and the star so it shimmers beautifully.
Okay that´s all for me today. Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit

Merry Christmas In Castle And Cottage

tisdag 13 september 2016

Hello and welcome back!
Ok, today I have two cards to show, both inspired by Kimberly Wiener's Muse:ChristmasVisions card. First, I felt that I was a bit tired of wreaths so I tried to find something else that could be used instead, and the choice fell on the snowman globe from Woodware.'s supposed to be a wreath, so after a while I decided to make a new card...
...and this time I used the Tim Holtz Alterations Regal Crest die to create this one...
...and which is best do you think? I link up both:)
Have a wonderful day!
Hugs, Birgit
