Just a few Cards....

I won't do much writing because I have a few cards to show. The 2 Autumn cards were inspired by the Battle of the Bands(BOTB) hosted by Stephen T. McCarthy.  I couldn't get my computer working because...you know...Windows 10 (insert expletives here). If you visit Pat Hatt's blog you know how I ended up dead because of it:) OK so on with the show.


Fairytale Stampers- Photo Inspiration
Simon Says- Colour Inspiration

This was inspired by Vivaldi over at BOTB. I am sorry that I don't recall who picked Vivaldi. I had it marked down but my hubby cleaned my area and now I can't find my scribble notes. If any of you remember, please remind me:) I loved making this card with a funky background, paste that I mixed with purple, coloured the the grape image and leaves and cut out the leaves.


Crafty Creations- Don't be Blue

This is the 2nd BOTB inspiration from Curious As A Cathy-he song choice-"Autumn Leaves. I just thought of leaves falling and then went from there. I used my alcohol inks, my favourite leaf stamp and the cuddlebug


Whimsy Card Challenge-Anything Goes or Halloween
Craft Your Passion-Always Anything Goes

This was from a color challenge a few weeks ago but I still put it up and can be for any occasion. I had fun with this card and it's suitable for a hint of Halloween but can be a birthday even for the winter months


CCAYL- No Stamping
CHNC-Vintage/Shabby Chic
Winter Wonderland-Christmas Flowers

The next 3 are Christmas cards and this was from another Color Throwdown I just missed. Oh well. I really like the colours and, Unsure if this goes with Shabby Chic but ...that's because I really just don't know what that means. I'm still going for that look.


CCAYL- No Stamping
ABC Christmas Challenge-Non-Traditional Christmas Colours
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long- Favourite Christmas Colours and/or lots of layers
52 Christmas Card Challenge-  Blue or Purple plus 1 metallic

This involves my favourite colours:) So, of course 52 Cards stated Purple or Blue  and I made a card showing both colours. I hope it is still accepted. These are my favourite colours plus add in the glitter and it makes it just right:)


CHNC2-Always Anything Goes
Happy Little Stampers, Christmas-Poinsettias

The picture doesn't do it justice but here is the 3rd one. I was in a hurry and no matter what I did, I either had a glare from the metallic papers or it looked dull. I decided to go traditional with the red and green on this one.

  1. All of these 3-D cards are gorgeous, dear Birgit! I especially like the colorful autumn leaves in the first two, the pink and blue color combo in the third and the festive red and green of the Christmas - Poinsettias card. Lovely work, dear BB!

  2. AWESOME cards, Birgit! I was missing your crafty projects. The autumn cards are my favourite - you've captured the colours and textures of the season. But they are all ... awesome.

  10. Oh, Birgit, the trees with the pink and blue background! I have a watercolor--one of my favorite works of art--very much like it. Mine hangs above the arched doorway that leads to my dining room from the living room. I adore your cards. I remember the Vivaldi, but don't remember who used it. The answer is in your comments, I hope, but I don't have time to read them all.

    Love,
    Janie

  25. Gorgeous set of beautiful cards to enjoy this morning. Each one is designed so uniquely, and yet each is lovely. Especially enjoyed the wonderful golden leaves and of course, each of the poinsettia cards. Love the dual leaf colors on the 1st poinsettia card, with the elegant scroll work frame. The 2nd poinsettia card is so very dramatic with the delicate gold scrolls on that black frame, and love the texture of the center red, that shows off the lovely poinsettia. Thanks for joining us at HLS October Christmas challenge, and I just became your newest follower. Have a great week. (and I reverted back to win7 from win10 because I had so much difficulty with getting _anything_ to work properly).

  28. Birgit, what beautiful autumn cards! I used Vivaldi's Four Season on September 15th BoTB. :) It makes me giddy to think I had a hand for a change to inspire someone. It's usually the other way around, someone inspires me. Your handiwork is fabulous. You're so talented. Thanks for visiting. ;)
