Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #104

Hi , 

its challenge time at Addicted to Stamps and More!

We have an easy one for you for this week - its CAS! Don't we all just love this! Although they are not always that simple to make....

I choose to do a one layer card and in celebration of Germany's world cup victory I decided to go with a soccer theme here..... Since I am German I naturally rooted for the German team - although I did not watch the game.... had better more important things to do ;)

The colors of the German flag are black, red and yellow - those ovals are actually my fingerprints - I did some generational stamping here. The sentiment is by STAMPlorations - Celebrate Artsy. The soccer ball - no idea....

We have a generous sponsor this week - its:

The winner will receive 3 free digis of her choice!

So come on over to the ATSM challenge blog  and get some inspiration from our wonderfully creative DT and we hope you find time to join in the fun!

I am also playing in some challenges with this card:

One-Layer Simplicity Challenge - Wave the Flag - I am waving the German flag here
Less is More - One layer card - Adapt A Fingerprint

Haha Cornelia, as soon as I saw this card, it reminded me of the world cup finals match. You had used the flag colors in a great way.

I knew as soon as I saw this that it was about the final. Stayed up to watch extra time, Germany's goalie is fantastic. Great idea, just about to post my LIM creation. :)

Hallo Cornelia, tolle Karte und super Idee mit dem Fingerprint!
Das Spiel war spannend bis zum Schluss, ich glaub ich hatte während des Spies Bluthochdruck
Love the fingerprints!!! What a great idea! This is such a fun masculine card.
Kathyk said…
Love the card and the fact you "stamped off" your fingers to give the illusion of movement too

Di said…
Great card Cornelia! I've been waiting for you to get those fingers inky ever since Saturday when the LIM challenge went up :)

We were also supporting Germany from the beginning here - great result. Although, like you, we didn't really see much of the football.

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

Crackerbox Stamps - Sniff You First

   Hi Everybody,  Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. Affiliate links may be used in the links provided below. I made this card with some of the older stamps from  Crackerbox Stamps . It is a very simple card. I stamped the  Emu Adele  and colored it with Copics. Stamped the  sentiment  onto black card stock and heat embossed it in white. I wrapped some string around the card. Mounted the sentiment with foam tape. Lastly I added some splatters. The stamps I used: Emu Adele Sniff you first sentiment   I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting! Happy Stamping! Linking up with: Sisterhood of  Snarky Stampers  - s=snarky
