KIS #7 - Schneemaenner/Snowmen and Hello to a new member



I am very happy you joined my little blog. And as is customary on my blog I greet  my new members usually with a special picture of artwork that I have discovered on one of my museums trips. This time I choose glass artist Toots Zynsky. One of his pieces is in the Newark Art Museum. I found it stunning and very different from other glass artists. He fuses colored glass threads to create his pieces. Very unique. I hope you like it. I linked his name to his website, where you can see many more pieces better photographed than mine.....


Now here is a real challenge - to pull out those winter stamps when we almost have spring temperatures outside. I seriously thought about skipping this challenge, but then I got over it and made this card. And to keep in line with the KIS challenge - its snowing on my blog. 

I actually had so much fun, I made two cards. This is the first one. The second card, I showed yesterday. I stamped the snowman three times, first on the aqua cardstock and then on white paper and cut it out, mounted it on foam cushions and cut out the "carrot" nose.

Here is a close up:

Materials: stamps - Rubber soul, border punch Martha Stewart

Diese Version in Luftaufnahme ist auch sehr original! Tolle Idee!

Würdest du mir bitte den html code deiner Schneeflocken verraten? Ich finde sie so schön, weil sie so klein sind und so Federleicht runterschweben.

Cornelia, Cornelia...
Ich bin platt. Den Schneemann finde ich noch viel cooler als den ersten, so einen Schneemann hab ich überhaupt noch nie gesehen! Großartig!
Vielen Dank für's Mitmachen bei KEEP IT SIMPLE!,
viele Grüße, Mia

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

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
