Cards I have Made

Dream Valley- Add Embellishments 

Happy Little Stampers: Christmas- Glitter

Addicted To Stamps- Christmas 

I made this card a couple of weeks back but just have not been able to get this on my blog due to work and  pet deaths( I’ll talk about this later). I love blue, purple and green together but blue dominates here:). I created the background using my colour bursts which you just tap a bit of the dust onto the white card. After, you spritz the card with water and watch it react and explode. You can pick the card up and let it drain into the other colours, add more water; let it dry and then add more colour burst with water. It’s fun, inky and messy...what I love. I had a large snowflake sticky that I attached to the card and then I added glitter in various blues using my glue pen. I took my snowflake diecut and cut it out from a silver paper using my sizzex machine, glued them in place for the border, added crystal embellishments in blues to finish my card. Voila!

Happy Little Stampers- Anything Goes With Dies

I love this home stamp and wanted to created a mannish card. Again I created this card a while back. I stamped this card on white cardstock  and started colouring this card using Tim Holtz dye ink pads with my sponges. I used some robin blue and various browns to create the rustic colour. After, I stamped the home and just coloured the leaves and berries with tombow markers. I ripped the paper around the image and took a sharpie, in Copper, to colour the edges. I adhered it to 2 different cardstocks...another one  Done.

Stamping Sensations- I Love

We Love Stamping- Favourite Stamps

I have these flower stamps for each month and they remind me of my mom who made many egg creations using quail eggs ( plus all other eggs) cut out and having the flower and stone of the month inside. She would make the tiniest flowers to place inside these small eggs. I'm not that creative as she was a true artist but I can make these nice cards. I stamped the daffodils and coloured them in I forgot...oh yes, my gelatos. No not the ice cream but these colours that look like a see through lip balm holder. They have a creamy texture that I rubbed on a surface and  using my water brush, coloured the flowers. Next, I took other coloured cardstock and used my sizzex machine to do the die cuts. To get the embossed edges I kept the cut paper in the diecut and used my cuddlebug to wring it through. I glued it all in place,  added the Crystals and another card done.

Hope you sll had a nice Easter.


  1. Hi, Birgit!

    Those are glorious shades of blue on the first card, the "Christmas Snowflake!" I can feel the icy air just by gazing at it. The "Anything Goes" care is indeed masculine and I love the muted tones. It looks like it was produced in the 1800s. "Daffodil April" is sensational, dear friend. I love the carrot color and the shade of green used to border the flower arrangement. That card would delight someone with an April birthday. My big brother turned 83 this week.

    Birgit, I noticed yesterday in a comment you left at CAAC that you were very worried about your Lucy being gravely ill. May I assume that Lucy is your cat? Your comment made me sad and I've been thinking about you and Lucy ever since. If she has passed away as you were predicting, then please know how terribly sorry I am. Gosh, you recently lost Wallace, and it grieves me to think of you suffering the loss of yet another beloved pet. I offer prayers, dear friend BB.

  2. All of them beautiful. The postcard one is cool.

  3. These are all fabulous. I think the last one may be my favorite because of the die cuts you used. However, they are all wonderful in their own right.

  4. I like the blue one best. Sorry to hear you have lost another pet.

  5. How many lovely cards! The one you made for We Love Stamping looks so beautiful with those framed flowers, your colouring with gelatos is very effective. Thanks for joining us at We Love Stamping!

  6. You are a true artist, too. Your medium is cards. Don't discount what beauty you create.
