Happy Birthday Maria!

Another Blog Land Birthday Celebration!!!!!

Happy 50 Birthday Maria!
(from rieslingmama)

You are amazingly creative, witty and fun! I'm glad I met you through blogging. You are always an inspiration to me!
I wish you fifty more, my friend!

This cake I found for you on Pinterest - I thought it best reflects your style - innovative, clean and a bit wonky ;)

And here is my birthday card for you - I actually send you one through snail mail - that was before I got wind of the linky party that Shirley clevery organized. The linky will be up for 2 weeks, so anybody can join into this celebration.

Enjoy you BIG BIRTHDAY Maria!

I used the Papertrey Rainbow Stripes die with the inlaid die cut technique. The balloons are Mama Elephant - Party Kit, the sentiment is Papertrey Think Big Favorites.

I am also linking this card with CASology - the cue word is BLUSH
and Seize the Birthday  - anything birthday with optional stitches
Snippets Playground - use a snippet (balloons)

Nicely done with the rainbow stripes....I don't have that die but you are making me want it!
maria f. said…
Oh Cornelia - I love it. The cake... looks like one I would make. You'll never see a perfectly frosted thing on my kitchen counter! And the dots banner - yep, so me. As for your description of my style... I wish I could go back and rewrite my Moxie Fab interview. I would LOVE to use "innovative, clean and wonky". As for those wonderfully shaded balloons sliding down the stripes, and all in shades of pink too... that is one fun birthday card! Thanks so much for this AND for the gorgeous embossed flower card which arrived just yesterday!

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
