Paper Pieced masculine card with Flames

Before I get to today's card I want to say HELLO and WELCOME to my two new members


Both have fantastic blogs that I have linked, feel free to check them out!

All my new members get a welcome picture - usually some piece of art I really like and hope you enjoy it, too. This picture I took in the NY City subway. The 14th Street/8th Ave station is full of delightful little sculptures by Tom Otterness. Here two workers are cleaning old subway tokens from the walkway. You really have to pay attention to see them - they are quite small.

I also want to thank everybody who continues to visit my little blog and leaves me comments. It is so uplifting to read them and they motivate me making cards. You make my day!


Yesterday it was gorgeous - sunny and pleasant. I had the day off work and took the change to go skiing - probably the last time this very short season. Today its dreadful outside - wet, cold, drizzling rain - in one word YUCK! What could be better than spending time in my craft room.....

At CASology this week's theme is "flames" and at Addicted to CAS the theme is masculine cards. I decided to combine those into one card. And since all good things are three as we say in Germany (Aller guten Dinge sind drei) I am playing in the KIS challenge as well - the theme is paper piecing. 

Just saw that the theme at Less is More is also paper piecing. I can't resist, I'll link this card up there as well.

Update: Obviously I can't read - as Chrissie pointed out its paper piercing, not paper piecing! That little R makes all the difference....Well, its too late, can't retract from the challenge, but they can throw it out!

The car stamp is amuse. I stamped it, clear embossed it and colored it with Copics. I fuzzy cut it and mounted it on foam cushion. The sentiment is Hero Arts - Four Bold Messages (Cl226), which I masked. the flames I sponged, using part of a TCW stencil.

Thanks so much

Oh man, this is a FANTASTIC take on the flame challenge ... and it looks so good!! The masking and sponging turned out so well. I misread the LIM challenge too, until I saw the sample cards and was trying to find the paper-pieced elements : )

Way to go, Cornelia!!!! Awesome Honorable Mention on CASology!

Ich kann mich Anni nur anschließen: der Feuerschweif ist grandios!
Und falls es dich tröstet: das kleine "r" habe ich auch erst übersehen. Ich habe es erst bemerkt, als ich einigen Beiträgen vergeblich das PaperPiecing gesucht habe ;o)
LG Anja

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
