Rubber Dance Fish Birthday

Hi Everyone,

I am again playing with that funny fish from Rubber Dance.



My Stamp supplies:
 Such great sets, love them both!

And that's how I made this card:


I stamped the fish and heat embossed him with clear embossing powder.


Colored him with a combination of Kaleidocolor inks and Stabilo markers.


It's just easier to color, when you heat embossed it - less coloring outside the lines ;)

I added the sentiment and some Washi tape. Trimmed the card and added a piece of glitzi paper on the side.



Don't forget about our challenge, which goes until the end of the month. Play along, if you find time!
You'll find it in the Facebook Rubber Dance Stamping Lounge and its  those three colors you see below or anything goes with Rubber Dance stamps.



Happy Rubber Dancing!

The Back Stories With Darnell and Cornelia - #4 Pierce

PIERCE
In a stroke of genius, Frank had chosen Pierce to be the new police mascot
in order to make the public less afraid of the police. They were used to
seeing big German Shepherds as dogs used in police work, but never a dog
like Pierce.


What was so genius is that no one suspected Pierce was actually a formidable secret asset to the department. For instance:
  • There were the ears permanently cocked and ready to eavesdrop on criminal conversations.
  • There were the wide-set bulging eyes that never missed a movement and could look left and right at the same time.
  • There were the protruding bottom teeth, excellent for picking locks.
  • There was the stubble on the chin, the roly-poly neck, and the pork-pie hat. Actually, they had no special qualities other than to disarm the public.
  • But the flat feet were an absolute necessity for any good detective and that curly-q tail of Pierce’s could snake through even the smallest hole with a remote camera.


Yes, indeed, genius!

Katzelkraft - Meerkats stand out

Hi Everyone,

it's Katzelkraft Wednesday!

Hope you liked this - I'll be back next Wednesday with more Katzelkraft inspiration!

STAMPlorations Inspiration # 216 - Typografia

Hi Everyone,
its inspiration time at STAMPlorations!

For this week our theme is Typografia stamps.

Here is my contribution:


My STAMPlorations supplies:


I spritzed Kraft paper with Mr. Huey spray after I had put the reindeer mask down. It needs to dry a really looooong time. Trust me. I then stamped the sentiment with Kaleidocolor inks and heat embossed it. You need to first use Versamark for those type of inks. Added two small enamel dots. 


You see that is so easy. You can really mass produce those cards in no time at all. 

From May 14 to May 31, products in the Typografia section of the store will be 15% off instantly + with my DT code STAMPGIRLCORNELIA, customers can get up to 35% off. 

Additionally,
all throughout May, products in the Things with Wings section of the store will be 15% off instantly + with my DT code STAMPGIRLCORNELIA, customers can get up to 35% off. 

All our  Inspiration Project posts have a monthly random drawing - 1 commenter wins a $10 gift certificate. So look at all those fabulous cards the Inspiration Girls made and leave them some love! It may pay off :)

Happy Stamping!

Crackerbox & So Suzy Stamps - Thanks a Minion Dad

Hi Everybody,

the sale category for Crackerbox & So Suzy Stamps is fathers day and sports, so I figured I make a card for this occasion:


And what is better than the minions? I colored Phil, the minion with Inktense and added the sentiment. The DAD I die cut and added it to my card, as well as some Washi tape.

Stamp Connection #49

Hi Everyone,

Connected through our love for card making, blogging and being from Germany we (Tanja from Little Art Cottage and I) decided to create a monthly project within predefined requirements. We are going to show you the result every 2rd Sunday of the month and this is our ninth transatlantic get-together!

This time it was my turn to pick the requirements:
no card, no tag



Now you can admire it from all directions ;)


I took one of those little framed canvasses and stamped the adorable kittie on it. The other stamps are from Basik&Co - ancient stamps.But the kittie needed some friends.....



You see that the bird and the mouse are hiding on the sidelines - they don't want to end up like those fish, LOL


For coloring I used anything I had on hand - mixed media, if you will. I sprayed it with varnish - hopefully the colors won't come off.









Lets check out  Tanja's artwork!

Happy Stamping!

Guest Designing for the Twofer Challenge

Hi Everyone,

 I have the great honor to guest design for my all time favorite challenge - the Twofer challenge from my blogging friend Darnell from djcardkreations.


The theme is wheels. 
Hmmmm, I thought, what to do with that????
Not exactly an easy theme. 


I dug around in my craft supplies and found this bicycle die cut - no idea what company makes it. It had to do. I first made the card with the Cats on Appletrees animal stamps. I dotted the frame and added two heart shaped enamel dots, as it clearly needed more color. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches.


For my second card, I die cut the bike wheel with fun foam and used it as a stamp. Stamped it with Versamark onto water color paper and heat embossed it. Then I sprinkled Brushos and spritzed with water. The sentiment is by Honey Bee Stamps, including the die cut.


So, two different occasions. One card and encouragement card and the other is what I like to call an "any occasion card", if you are just thinking about someone and want to send them a card for no specific reason.

So much fun. I just love it that this challenge really gets me thinking into stretching the possibles my stamps and dies allow me to do.



Happy Twofing everyone! 
I hope you find time to play along!
