Make It Monday #148 and Stamplorations


When I saw this weeks Make It Monday I first thought there is something wrong with my eyes....sorry, Dawn, but it just looked blurry to me...But then I gave it a try at home and I was thrilled to see the result! The topic is Generation Stamping with Line Images & Multiple Colors - and Dawn McVey is doing a great video about this over at Make It Monday with all the explanation you need!



I did not have any Papertrey stamps that I could use with this technique, so I took the diamond from the Hero Arts set So Kind for the generational stamping. I filled them with the little diamonds from the Happy Harlequin stamp set byPapertrey. The sentiment is Papertrey -  Cutting Garden.


I really love the result of it. It looks so much better in real life than on the picture. It has real dimension!

And then it inspired me to make a second card:


I used my brand new Stamplorations stamp sets - the generational stamping I did with the square from Patchwork Frenzy. The feather are from Trendy Feathers, as is the sentiment. 


The little squiggle I added from the Papertrey set Happy Trails. And of course - sequins..... I am just wondering what I did before sequins......


Do you see that there is text on the feather? That should qualify for the Keep it Simple challenge this month


The theme is TEXT!

And of course this card will participate in this month Stamplorations challenge - Stamps and feathers
One Layer Simplicity challenge - Restock your Shelves - can never have too many thinking of you cards - especially with Valentine's day around the corner
Simon Says Monday challenge - Anything goes
and lastly CAS(E) this Sketch - I just turned the sketch around

This technique looks fun and what a great look it gives, both cards are stunning x

Great mixing of PTI and non-PTI stamps, Cornelia! If one didn't read your post, you'd think it was all one set on your first card. And I do like this stamping technique with a more linear image like your diamond. Gives it a more "artsy" and less "blurry" look I think. Well done!

Just beautiful stamping. Enjoyed your reaction to the process. I, too, had trouble 'focussing' !

Daen'Ys said...

Oh, zwei ganz tolle Karten!! Vor allem die erste, die gefällt mir besonders gut. Den verwischten Effekt finde ich super!

Pia S said...

Two great CAS cards!
I love the pattern you created for your first card, it's equally perfect for a card for a woman as for a man.
And those feather stamps on your second card and color blocks - WOW! I love feathers, and it's a beautiful CAS design!

Rema said...

Awesome job, love how those diamonds pop out...

Sensational works of art, Cornelia! You've intrigued me with that MIM now; I thought it just looked blurry, too, but now I'll go check it out if I have time.

Thank you for the head's up about the "Stamps and Feathers" challenge at Stamplorations for my Tweet Birthday card!! Hugs, Darnell

Cornelia, thanks for even more gorgeousness entered in the One-Layer Simplicity Challenge! I adore all these cards and love how you took the technique and ran with it. The two sequins on the feather card are particularly brilliant!

Kim Heggins said...

Girl...you totally rocked this challenge. What a fabulous card!

Andrea Ockey Parr said...

This cards are absolutely stunning! I am NOT good at keeping things simple and my cards are usually too fat to even fit in an envelope, so I truly admire people who can make such beautiful cards with just a couple of amazing techniques and a color or two. The energy of these cards was so inspiring and I wanted to try out these techniques for myself. You really have a great artistic eye and it was a pleasure to see your work! Thank you so much for sharing these beauties with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!
