Birthday Fishes

I recently ordered some Paper Smooches stamps (because I don't yet have enough stamps, LOL).....they are just so damn cute - hard to resist.....



But anyhow this set came in handy for this weeks Paper Smooches challenge. The inspiration picture is below - subtle stripes in blue, yellow and soft pink. I used the fish from the set Birthday Buddies, stamped it in Versamark and heat embossed it in silver - those jars have a silver lid. I made a mask for the fishes and then used a Memory Box stencil to sponge the stripes waves. I colored the fish with Copics - stripes here as well. 


 You see the silver embossing better on the oblique image, straight on it looks like black ink.... 
Added the sentiment and bubbles (with glossy accents) and a jute bow. this is a one layer card, which qualifies it also for the A Blog named Hero challenge - which is collaborating with Paper Smooches right now

I will also link up with KIS - add a bow
Seize the Birthday - Twine or String on a birthday card
CASology - Pet - we had guppies for quite a few years

So much for now - thank you all for visiting and have a great weekend!

OOOhhh wie schön!!! Beim ersten Foto sieht man gar nicht, dass du Silberfische gestempelt hast. Beim Anblick der Karte wird einem gleich etwas kühl ums Herz - bei dieser augenblicklichen Hitze sehr erfrischend.
Schönen Sonntag, LG

Hallo Cornelia, ich freue mich, dich als neue Leserin begrüßen zu können,
herzlich Willkommen :-))
Deine Karte ist super süß mit den Fischen! :-)) diese Stencilschablone ist ein genialer Hintergrund dafür, habe die Schablone auch aber keine so süßen Fische. Die "I want" Liste wird immer länger... ;-)
LG Manuela

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
