Another Baby Card

I liked my recent baby card so much - I had to make another one.....



I used the colors and sketch from the current CAS-Colours and Sketches challenge, see below. The baby elephant is more minty in real life - looks more blue in the picture.... I wanted to make a color neutral card, as the gender of the baby is not known yet.....


I again pulled out my Paper Smooches set Chubby Chums - its my go-to set when it comes to baby cards...... and stamped it on patterned paper. The cork is from Home Depot, I think its a shelf liner or something like that and has a sticky back - how convenient.... Stamped the sentiment - it's from the same set. The toe nails and tusk I accented with liquid enamel. 


I am also adding this card to the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge - Anything goes
and Less is More - use more than one stamp (I used 3)
And Dream Valley has Baby as a theme - I am on the DT - perhaps you wan to play as well!

Thanks for visiting my blog today :)

Liebe Cornelia, diese Babykarte ist allerliebst. Du machst wirklich wunderbare Karten und ich freue mich so sehr, dass mich deine Werke unversehrt erreicht haben. Vielen Dank, dass du uns bei unserer Kartenaktion unterstützt und ich bin noch immer sprachlos, dass uns wirklich Karten aus den USA geschickt wurden, für einen kleinen Verein im bayerischen Eichstätt. Wahnsinn! Du bist großartig! Vielen DANK und alles Liebe, Martina

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
