Paper Smooches - and more cards to showcase!

I have been so busy the last couple of days - no time to make a card.... This one I made a couple of days ago and did not find time to put this blog post together and time is running out on the Paper Smooches challenge - its anything goes.....

I used the Paper Smooches - Zoo Crew and Sentiment sampler for this card. The candle is from Michaels (I tilted the flame...) and the "make a wish" is by Avery Elle. I colored it with Copics and added  Paper Candy. 
I am also adding this card to the Snippets Playground

Oh, before I forget - the STAMPlorations May release blog hop is still going on - visit and leave a comment - there is lots of stamps to win


And now I wanted to share some more cards with you that I got from my blogging friends:

 This card is from Di from the Pixie's Snippets Playground - one of my favorite place to link up my card - if you are not familiar with it go and check it out - all you need to have is a snippet on your card - most of my cards have one on it, so I am there regularly. You can also win - I was the lucky winner of this fabulous heart die that you see on Di's card - thank you, Di!

This trendy watercolor card is form Susanne from Keep in touch! - I love the colors and the sparkly sequins. We are both German from the same area there and live in the US and are planning a get-together, but so far it has not worked out :( - our day will come!

This card is form Anita from My Papercraft World - you may have seen this beauty already on her blog - it is just gorgeous. there is this subtle sparkle and the stamping is impeccable - not to forget the beautiful colors! 

And lastly a card I just got today from my sister (no blog). She is very much in trend here with the watercolor background - so simple and yet so effective!

So thank you all - it is such joy to get a card in the mail - it is quite special to find a real letter buried among all the junk mail!
And thank you also for visiting - I am glad you took time to come by - thank you!

What a super cute card, Cornelia! Love the way the giraffe is blowing out the candle! What a great idea. Happy Mothers Day to you too! :-)
Bei den vielen Karten weiss ich ja gar nicht was ich zuerst schreiben soll, aber die Giraffenkarte ist super witzig,)
Einen schönen Mothersday und herzliche Grüße aus dem Rheinland Elisabeth

Die Giraffenkarte ist süüüüüüß!!! Am Besten finde ich (ich habe es erst beim zweiten Hinschauen entdeckt), dass die Giraffe die Kerze ausbläst!!! Genial!!! Liebe Grüße, schönen Muttertagssonntag.

Oh what a fun card Cornelia! I do love the giraffe blowing out the candle and how you've combined more than one stamp set so cleverly.

Glad you like your Playground prize :)

Hugs, Di xx

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
