Black/White + Splash of Color

Ahhh, the guys in my house left me for the weekend (they are having some serious FUN together), my daughter will be with her boyfriend and I will have almost an entire weekend for myself. Guess what I will do???

But before I want to say "Hello and Welcome" to my latest members on my blog 

Susan and Joy

Rosi (Daen'Ys) did that when I joined her blog and I found that just so very nice. I get so excited when somebody new joins my blog, so I wanted to say thank you for making my day brighter. I hope you visit often and like what you see. See Rosi, I am an old copy cat, but that was such a nice thing you did!

So this card is for all of you (including my slightly "older" members):

Of course I also will link it to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Black/White + Splash of Color. I had so much fun for and more ideas for essentially the same challenge by Less is More last week, so using the same theme is just up my alley!


I ran the black paper with a Sizzix embossing folder through my Big Shot, directly applied white ink onto the embossed areas and glued the paper onto white card stock. The punches are from Fiskars (heart) and Paper Shapers. I used paint chips from Home Depot for the punched shapes and them I applied a thick coat of Glossy Accents  onto the hearts. That shows better on the detail picture. The sentiment is Paper Smooches (Christmas sampler), which I heat embossed.

Hi Conni,

freut mich dass dir die Art wie ich meine neuen Verfolger begrüße gefällt und ...
...."copy cat" gefällt mir *lol*

Sehr schön und edel ist eine Begrüßungskarte. Die zwei Herzerln sind wunderschön und das embosste hast du toll gemacht.
Ich hab so was noch nie probiert, die Farbe direkt auf die Prägeschablone aufzutragen... der Effekt ist super, da muß ich doch mal ein bisschen rumexperimentieren!
Gut auch das ich bei dir vorbeischau, die Challenge bei der du da mitmachst interessiert mich auch. Ich hab da nämlich eine Karte die super gut zu Less is More gepasst hätte aber die Idee dazu kam mir erst heute als ich eine Karte zu meinem Sketch bei der Bastel-Elfe gemacht habe.
Kennst du dieses Forum auch?
Hier gibt es zwar nichts zu gewinnen, aber der Spaß bei der Sache ist immer da und wir tun einfach so als ob. *gg*

Ach...Cognac pur ist mir zu stark, ich mag ihn ganz gerne mit Schweppes verdünnt...

Wie ich lese hast du dein ganzes Wochenende zum Kartenbasteln! Schön... dann gibt es bestimmt viel neues bei dir zu sehen!
Ich muß noch ein paar Tage warten, dann habe ich ab Dienstag die ganze Woche für mich allein *Augenroll*
...mein Mann fährt mit zwei ehemaligen Schulkameraden in den Süden Frankreichs, um die Rally von Monte Carlo zu verfolgen. Er war in seinen jungen Jahren selber Rallyfahrer aber auf kleinem Niveau.
Jetzt spielen wir beide Tennis, das ist nicht so gefährlich... ;-)

Uiuiui, schon wieder so ein Roman den ich dir schreibe....

Hab ein schönes und kreatives Wochenende

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it. And here is a close -up: Challenges: Dynamic Duos CAS Colours and Sketches Addicted to Stamps and More Amusing Challenges Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die. --X-- Card for Maddy: You may know already about  Maddy ,  who  was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie.  She now has a relapse and this car

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
