Happy New Year!!!

If you have not yet seen the inspiration picture at Inkspirational - go and have a look (its below, too) - just amazing. I knew I had to play.....And this is perfect for a New Years card, since I am a little tired of making Christmas cards.....

I basically recreated this beautiful picture finally putting my Memory Box City Scape dies to good use... I have used them before, but forgot to take a picture of the card, before I sent it out....
I off set the die cuts just a tad. The black paper is glitter paper -looks really fabulous in real life. For teh firework I played around a little bit, since I don't have a die for it. I wanted to use the Memory Box Chloe Stem die 
and turn it upside down, but I did not like the look of it - too bulky. So I cut it apart, as you can see:

I thought that looks better....The sentiment is by STAMPlorations Sentiment Builders: Christmas & New Year and Bloom Sketches. Added some Wink of Stella to the NEW  YEAR, but you can't see that...
I am also linking this card with the Snippets Playground - use a snippet (white strip at the bottom and "firework")
Inkspire - Happy New Year
and with Simon Says - Anything Goes


Happy New Year to all of you - my followers and visitors. May you stay happy and healthy and get even more crafting time than the prior year!
Keep stamping!

Love this Cornelia! Way to use your die cut in a totally different way! That's thinking outside the box! Happy to see you over at Ink too. :-). Happy New Year!

Love your glittery card! I always admire your ability to think outside the box (here: die) and use them creatively! And when it looked too bulky you didn't throw it out but cut it apart! Brilliant! Happy New Year!

Very inventive Cornelia. I just wanted to get my pastels out until I realised they were still on the shelf at my Son's!
Wishing you health and happiness in 2015. :)

Hi Cornelia!

Wow, this is just fabulous! Who's a clever little sausage thinking to use the Chloe Stem that way then? And I do so love the Cityscape dies - in fact I'm waiting for mine to arrive any day now - can see lots of great uses for them!

Happy New Year!

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
