Inspire and Explore with Birgit

January 4, 2019

Looking for sweet watercolor scenes featuring critters and Creative Dies? Look no further than our new collection Happy Heart Day.

The talented Brigit Edblom joins us today with card ideas we can’t help but L-O-V-E!

For her first card Birgit is stamping with our beary cute 3 x 4 inch transparent set, 30-534 All My Love.  When combined with a white on white border created with our die set, 51-484 Lovely Border, her card would be perfect for Valentine’s, anniversary, or just to say ‘I love you.’

Design details for card shown above: Stamp 30-534 All My Love onto Waterford High White watercolor paper with Jet Black Archival ink and paint with Daniel Smith watercolors.  Die cut 51-484 Lovely Border and from this panel die cut an inner rectangle with any basic frame die (Birgit used 51-440 Elegant Stitching.) Place the frame onto the card.

For her next card, Birgit has featured our 30-530 Fairy Love and 30-525 Words Sweet stamp sets.

The neutral grey background looks spectacular with the bright pops of red on this happy girl’s outfit.

Design details for card shown above: Stamp 30-530 Fairy Love onto Waterford High White watercolor paper with Jet Black Archival ink and paint with Pro Markers. Paint an oval with Daniel Smith watercolors. Stamp sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink.

To create a scene on her next card design, Birgit combined our stamp sets 30-450 Peaceful Winter and 30-535 Space Reserved.

Fussy cut the image and place on the background with 3D foam.

For her next cards, Birgit is showcasing two different variations using the bunny from our miniature 3 x 4 inch transparent set, 30-529 Lovable.

First, this sweet bunny is sitting on our Creative Die, 51-488 Big Love.

For more cardmaking fun, love is definitely in the air with our Creative Die, 51-492 Hearts Galore.

Using the die shown above as a background element, Birgit added the bear from our transparent set, 30-523 Key to My Heart, perched on her twine.  A sweet sentiment from the transparent set, 30-532 Love Sentiments, finishes off this card perfectly.
