Quick One Layer Christmas Card

Hi, Cornelia here today, playing with Joyful

I made this simple and quick one layer card, that would be easy to mass-produce, if you have a lot of Christmas cards to make. And you know, Christmas is not too far off.....

So, lets get started!

I stamped the wreath from the Joyful set and sponged it, deliberately going outside the stamp.

Added the sentiment and colored the berries with red marker.

I then masked the sides and sponged again with a slightly lighter green' I then decided that the berries were not red enough and added red and gold Stickles to them. 

A small bow to finish it off. Here is a straight on view, but you can't see the Stickles that well.

Happy Stamping!

Like that sponged banner and the Stickles are the perfect finishing touch!

Cool design. I love how your sponged and masked area fades away.

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?
