Cornelia Prepares for New Years!


I had enough of Christmas cards and New Years is certainly a card worthy event, so why not prepare for it in time.....


I started with watercolor paper and heat embossed the sentiment on it:

Sprinkled blue and purple Brushos on it - you see you need very little, looks like little specks of pepper....

Mist it with water - the paper warps, so I weighed it down with acrylic blocks: 

Let it dry - of course I have no patience, so I used my heat gun to speed it up.
If you look closely you see little specks of dried paint on the embossed letters - I wiped them off with a damp cloth - see the picture on your right:

Heat embossed the Champagne glasses in silver on a piece of scrap paper:

I fussy cut them, colored them with Copics and mounted them with foam tape on the card:

I hope you enjoyed this post. If you don't have Brushos you can just use regular watercolors, that works quite as well! 
You can visit the STAMPlorations blog HERE and see what goodies are waiting there for you! Like the new stamp set Sugar Rush that is available now!

Happy Holidays to all of you!

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
