Festive Friday#17


So cute, this felt acorn from Festive Friday - it immediately appealed to me and I wanted to play....


But it wasn't as easy as I thought. I wanted to use felt, to get that cozy warm feeling from the inspiration picture, but I did not like any one of my two felt cards I made. So I went with what comes easier to me - stamping.....I like this card. 



The windows are cut with the Papertrey Take Tree die, the stamps are Hero Arts Four Framed Snowflakes, the sentiment is by Magenta. I also cut a thin strip of metal foil and added some Stickles.

--X--

I will show you my other attempts....maybe I shouldn't.....


The stamps and die cuts are Prickley Pear,the sentiment is Hero Arts - Decorate your Holidays. Somehow there is something missing on this card - any suggestions?



The second card looks better here than in real life. The stamps and die cut are from the Hero Arts/Sizzix Merry Christmas Tree set. For both cards I used the Papertrey woodgrain embossing plate as backgound.

I am also submitting those cards to the CNHC challenge - Anything Christmas

Deine Schneeflockenkarte ist wunderschön! Auch die anderen beiden sind doch ganz gut geworden! Bin froh, dass du sie gezeigt hast, weil ich neugierig geworden bin... Ich finde Filz auf Karten ganz toll (und es ist einfach zu verschicken). Schön ist auch, dass man ihn mit dies ausschneiden kann! Habe kleine Filzembellishments in Bayern gekauft, aber noch nix damit gemacht...

I like all your cards, and the felt tree one especially. The contrasts of the felt against the cardstock and the shiny charms on the felt provide a lot of interest. For the ornament card, I think a dark border around the edge to separate the two layers would add depth and contrast. (I guess I like contrast!) Thanks for visiting my blog!

I love that 1st stamped card, with the inchy squares, and great touch to add the silver trim strip. Really set off your squares. I liked your felt cards too. Not sure why you didn't, but perhaps if you add trim to the one ornament? Actually looked fine to me as is...but maybe you'd like it better with added bling? Your tree card looked pretty as well. TFS & don't be too hard on yourself!
I love them all, but definitely the first is my favourite, because I love snowflakes! Thank you so much for sharing all three with us at Festive Friday!

I love all three cards, Cornelia. Love the first one with trendy design and details. I think everything is just perfect for the second card, love those pretty ornaments and lovely design. And the third card is so elegant, just love each detail of it. :-)

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.

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
