Faux paper cutting

Hi Everyone,

today I want to share a card with the faux paper cutting technique I learned on the CAS #4 class. The fabulous Debby Hughes showed us the how to....



I used all sorts of dies for this - mainly by Memory Box. The pink LOVE is by Papertrey - Wet Paint. Its a labor of love to make this, but the result is worth it, right? Looks so elegant!

And because I love it so much, you get another view of it:

You must have the patience of a saint Cornelia but it was well worth it. I have seen others try this but not using such fine die cuts. Well done. :)

Die ist aber echt schön geworden! Aber ich kann mir vorstellen, dass du sie nicht massenproduzieren willst... ;)

Way to go Cornelia! This is absolutely beautiful - so delicate and also very elegant. LOVE the pink, white and grey of course. I've checked that technique out just now - you must have the patience of a saint! But so worth it.

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
