Happy Bird-day

Popping in to post one more card to the Happy Little Stampers August Sketch Challenge.


I used the scalloped rectangle die cut from PTI's Nostalgic Notions to cut the pink panel and the stamped panel is cut using MFT's Stitched Rectangle Stax. The streamers are stamped using PTI's Birthday Style and the birds are from an old set that I don't remember the name or the company. (sorry) They are colored with copics and the party hats and sentiment were added using My Creative Time's Tweet Me set. Some candy dots from Queen & Co. finish this card off.

Warm & Cozy Fall Quilts

I've been inspired by some of the fall quilted cards I've been seeing lately on the internet and thought I'd make some cards using PTI's set called Quilted - Spring. Even though the name suggests spring, I thought they came out beautiful in these festive, fall colors.





And this is a bonus card I made using the extra pieces I had left over from the other cards.



The pumpkins are cut using old Quickutz dies and the sentiments are from WPlus9's Fresh Cut Flowers.

Ink Resist Fall Cards

Good morning~ Last week my crafty friend, Marcia, did an ink resist tutorial on her blog. I couldn't wait to try it so today I have two cards to share that I made using her fabulous instructions.

On this card I used the leaves from MFT and used Ranger Distress inks in the background using a flower center from PTI's Funky Florals.


This card uses MFT's Primitive Pumpkins.
I love watching the magic happen when rubbing the ink onto the stamped versamark image. So cool with beautiful results!

PTI August Blog Hop

Hello PTI friends~ I'm joining in on the fun for PTI's August Blog Hop using this fabulous photo for inspiration.


This was the first card I made using the colors from the photo
I used Brushed Blooms and the horizontal Sentiment Splits die to make this card.
My next card combines the Make-It Monday challenge with the inspiration colors from the blog hop

I used Watercolor Wonder and stamped it onto the Garden Gild cover plate like Betsy did. The sentiment is from Graceful Greetings. It's kind of hard to tell in the photo but I used red, orange and yellow blingy gems to coordinate with the colored stripes that they are adhered onto.

Thanks so much for looking! Have fun along the hop! Blessings~ Birgit

Brown Eyed Susans

Hello paper crafting friends~ Fall is just around the corner and I'm ready to start playing with some fall colors so I'm using the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch for my Brown Eyed Susan's card.



The daisy stamp is from My Creative Time called "Hey There Little Lady" but I've been wanting to color it to look like the Brown Eyed Susan's that are in full bloom in my yard.

Masking Sentiments with PTI

Hello friends~ It was Ashley's turn to host this week's Make-It Monday and she talked about masking sentiments. You can find all the details HERE.
Here's my card for this challenge

I used the sentiment from Ruby Rose and masked it off to stamp the flowers and leaves from Happiness In Bloom. I love how the images surround the sentiment. So simple and it makes for a nice flat card for mailing.
I'm also entering this card into the Word Art Wednesday Challenge. They're getting close to their 200th challenge and are trying to get that many entries, so be sure to pop over there and join in on the fun too, where anything always goes!

Thanks for stopping by! Blessings~ Birgit

ColourQ Thanks

Here's a card I made using the colors from ColourQ

Kind of springy colors but fun, nonetheless.

I used a grid stencil from MFT and inked on the background using Soft Stone ink. The flowers and leaves were die cut using PTI's Make It Market Garden Guild Kit and colored using my copics. The sentiment is from Heart 2 Heart #3. Some candy dots in the center of the flowers finish this card off.

I'm also adding this card to the Word Art Wednesday Challenge.
