Little Tangles and Colour me....!

I am fairly busy getting a publication out there, but I took a break from the computer and made a card for Little Tangles - I just got some stamps I ordered recently and was hoping they would arrive in time for me to play with them in this challenge - and they did! I also really like this weeks Colour me...! colors - so naturally I combined the challenges.....

I used a TCW Stencil and sponged the feathers. The sentiment is Neat&Tangled - Everyday Circles and even the sequins are from them - I love them - so elegant, those flat, matte sequins. I added some gold thread with tiny gold pearls on the ends. Used some foam tape to pop up the card panel and sentiment circle.

Here is a slightly altered angle of the card- the light reflects differently off those sequins. 

So, off to do more work......Did I tell you recently that I LOVE your comments? They get me going! Thanks and keep them coming...... ;)

This is fantastic, Cornelia! Love the colours and that feather stencil is awesome! Your design reminds me of a dreamcatcher. Was that on purpose or just a great coincidence? :-). Hugs!

Oh, I love how the gold thread hangs from underneath the sentiment and the pearls give it some weight. Such an unusual idea – I might have to steal it :)

Thank you for playing along with us at Colour Me…! this week!

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

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it. And here is a close -up: Challenges: Dynamic Duos CAS Colours and Sketches Addicted to Stamps and More Amusing Challenges Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die. --X-- Card for Maddy: You may know already about  Maddy ,  who  was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie.  She now has a relapse and this car

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
