Welcome to 3 New Members and a Card

I just can't believe it - 3 more members - who knows - perhaps I make it to 100 by my 1 year blog anniversary, which is coming up at the end of next month! I am planning a little celebration, but for now I am going to celebrate 3 NEW MEMBERS!!!


I welcome all of you to my little blog and hope you will continue to like what I make. Here is your welcome picture:




It it by Fritz Koenig - the artist who created the Sphere at the World Trade Center, which got so badly damaged on 9/11. He is German and actually lives near my hometown. This is one of his sculptures in front of his Sculpture Museum in Landshut (my home town), which is housed in the restored old City Wall.

Back to card making.....A while back I discovered Lavinia stamps - they are from the UK and you can't buy them here. The currency exchange for the British pound is not exactly favorable, but eventually I could not resist and ordered a whole bunch of their stamps. At least they have a decent shipping rate....



I sponged the background - all stamps are from Lavinia. I did some generational stamping to add some depth. No sentiment, as you are only allowed Lavinia stamps and nothing else.... I will add this card to their current challenge - add a flower.

I wish you all a great weekend and thanks for stepping by!

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
