LOVE for several challenges and Welcome to 3 new Members

How exciting - I can welcome 3 new members to my blog! I am happy to see you here. Let me greet you properly

Mrs. Duck - otherwise known as Ang

 with a welcome picture:

It is a sculpture by Philip Haas - quite cool and recently exhibited in the Bronx Botanic Garden. This one is titeled "Winter" - I thought its appropriate for the season.... The artist basically turned an oil painting into a sculpture - I guess one can call it CASEing - below is the original painting by Arcimboldo

I hope you like your pictures and perhaps more important - you continue to enjoy what I do here ;) .....

Like this card I made for several challenges:

The tree die is by Memory Box - Twiggy Tree. I idi not die cut through the end of the stem and then made it longer with a craft knife. I sponged the tree. - Note that some af the branches go OVER THE EDGE.... The letters are by Papertrey - Block alphabet die. The little birds are from IO.

CASual Fridays - over the edge
Time Out challenge - Love and/or Friendship
Oozak - Anything goes white with one color
Bizzy Becs - "LOVE/FRIENDSHIP"....... 

Have a great evening and thank you all for visiting and your lovely comments - they warm my heart - especially nice, given how cold it is outside ;)

Übrigens habe ich die Karte auch nicht verstanden, bis ich verschiedene Links von Michaela erhalten habe, in denen per Bild ganz genau erklärt wird, wie man diese Karten macht. Soll ich sie dir schicken?
LG und schönes Wochenende - ich werde wie verrückt Olympia gucken.

Oh my...what a sculpture! I love it. And your card is your tree/L, so sweet.
Your card is gorgeous and very clever. The tree sculpture is really fascinating.
Hanna said…
Eine wundervolle Idee die Stanze als 'L' einzusetzen!!! Die Karte gefällt mir ausgesprochen gut!
Ich schicke Dir ganz liebe Grüße aus dem Westen Deutschlands, der diesen Winter bislang keine einzige Schneeflocke gesehen hat!
Susanne Vargas said…
Oh, look at that creative way you used that tree die! I am always looking for ways to stretch my dies and stamps but I would have never thought of that! Thanks so much! You are brilliant! Have a great and creative weekend!
Barbara said…
Very creative card - I love how the tree trunk continues into the letter and I'm always a sucker for the ombré look. Well done!

So very creative, Cornelia. Love how you die-cut the tree and made the sentiment. Love the inking too, crisp and clean my friend. :-)

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
