Cure for the Monday Blues #19

After my win for the last Cure for the Monday Blues challenge (you can see the card HERE) I felt really motivated to play again - thanks Taheera! What really captured me in the inspiration photo was the globe - as soon as I saw it I knew exactly what to make - I just had to wait for my new order from My Favorite Things....and I got it in time! 

So without further ado - here is my card:


I also incorporated the wood ceiling and the banner on the wall. And all the other colors you can find them in the picture as well. 



I mounted the white card stock panel onto chipboard to give it more substance and dimension. The patterned wood paper is from Michaels. I made the little banners with Washi tape.

I leaned on the sketch from the STAMPlorations challenge - there is still time to play, but you have to hurry, time is running out!
I am also linking this card with the Simon Says Wednesday challenge - Anything goes

I really like your card! I don't own a globe stamp (yet!), so I was unable to go in this direction with my card. I think you captured the feel of the inspiration photo perfectly! (Congratulations on your win last week!)

Fun take on the photo inspiration Cornelia.
I'm just waiting for my glossy accents to dry on my MUSE card before I can take a photo.(I don't have any glossy black dots!) :)

Way to go with your previous Cure for the Monday Blues win, and I'm calling winner winner with this one as well! Brilliant take: your globe and sentiment are so eye-catching on their tilted 'ceiling inspired' paper! Fabulous!

Nice card, Cornelia. The woodgrain background is very effective.

Thanks for visiting and leaving such a nice comment. I am glad you like my pizza box! Unfortunately my health does sometimes prevent me from getting into my studio but I do what I can.

Hope you are having a good weekend.

Love how you were inspired by the photo! Aren't the Cure for the Monday Blues challenges addicting?

Perfect choice of stamp set for the globe from the inspiration!! I love how you added your panel at an angle to mimic the feel of the room, and love the addition of the woodgrain patterned paper too! Thanks so much for playing to find a Cure For The Monday Blues!

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
