2 Cards- Love & Wintry

Cute Card Thursday- CAS

Happy Little Stampers: CAS- Love is in the Air 

This was for my hubby who is truly special. He was a real sweetheart buying me flowers and some chocolate. He does most of the cooking(during the week) since I am working(from home), takes care of the animals and tends to me when I am not well so this card is for him. I tried to make this as clean and simple(CAS) as I can even though it is layered. The pillow, for the Double D challenge, was my inspiration. I stamped the hearts in silver embossing ink and embossed the hearts in pink and red glitter powder. I did the same thing to the Sentiment stamp and added some heart crystals...Voila! Oh..he loved his sparkly card:)

Winter Wonderland-Anything Goes

I had a lot of fun creating this card especially since it is snowing here and we are to have a nice storm. I know, I am sick especially since I don't ski, skate or do any other winter sports. I would not mind to toboggan but I would be scared I could not get up again. Anyways, I have this aqua plastic card type which I put threw my cuddlebug to emboss the snowflake design. I took some fine grit sandpaper to rub off the colour so you see the white. I mounted blue cardstock and this other piece I created (inspired by this card I saw on Christmas Craft Creations  done by Shona) by placing silver embossing ink across the whole piece. I took 3 colours-darker blue, light blue and silver sparkle and sprinkled them down onto the silver ink. I dry-heated the paper to adhere the powder to the ink to get this background image. I stamped the poinsettia in silver and coloured it using my tombow markers and a silver pen for the berries. Finally, I took my new saying stamp, stamped and embossed that in silver too. I used some blue chalk to colour around the saying and the silver pen for the border. I mounted them on to the card with the flower on pop up dots for the 3D look. Hope you like them:)

Have a great day everyone and stay safe...not just for Covid but safe driving, shovelling and walking.

  9. Hi, Birgit!

    I admire your latest set of cards, dear friend, beginning with the first one that's ideal for giving on V-Day. I'm sure your hubby appreciated the "pucker up" card, and it was nice of him to bring you flowers and candy and routinely do the cooking whilst you work. With a good portion of the U.S. being ravaged by a fierce winter storm this week, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and you made a lovely card for the occasion. Let me be the first to wish you a merry Xmas 2021. Sorry I'm late with that annual greeting. I usually offer it on January 1.

    Yessum, the snow and ice are making driving and walking treacherous. Northerners proceed with caution. We had a ferocious storm here in the middle of the night and for the fourth day in a row received a heavy dose of rain. As a result we have large areas of standing water all over our property.

    Enjoy the rest of your week, dear friend BB!

  10. So great you have a creative outlet when the winter weather tends to keep you indoors! Beautiful take on the throwdown colors and I'm sure your hubby loved his card! Thanks for joining us at CTD!

  11. Very nice.
    I'm so glad you have a husband who's card (and other things) worthy.

  12. Hi Birgit, your Husband's Valentine's card is beautiful, it's a lovely design, and it sounds that he deserves it too. He sounds an absolutely wonderful Husband.
    Your Christmas cards are so beautiful, I love the blue and silver one especially, beautifully designed, Kate x

  13. As always, wondrous cards.
    Stay safe. Be well.

  14. Oh, goody. The spell caster person has been here twice. Yes, I'm being sarcastic.

  15. Lovely card, and sure to be loved!

  16. Thank you everyone! Merry Christmas Shady and glad you like the cards I created. I am so happy to be making cards again and I will do my best to answer each individually in the future...I hope.
