Homework and Make it Monday

I managed to make one of my "homework cards" from the CAS class - I was intrigued by those cute tiles that Julie Ebersole tought us the how to on day 1!
Made it into a baby card:


Used an ancient Sizzix die and a cuttlebug embossing folder. Some tissue paper, silver string and sequins. Its easy but the effect is great! I love it!
I am also linking this card with the Snippets Playground - use a snippet (the tile paper)
and with Happy Little Stampers - Embossing ( the tile is clear embossed)

But I also love the effect you can achieve when layering cover plate die cuts, as Dawn McVey teaches us in this weeks Make it Monday.


Looks cool, don't you think? Both the cover plate and sentiment are Papertrey. Added enamel dots.

I am also playing with this card in:
IN{K}SPIRE_me, using different greens and grey. 
 Seize the Birthday - anything goes



I thought I share - finally we got some snow - this is a picture of my front yard!



Happy Stamping, or shall I say - Happy Shoveling!

Guten Morgen Cornelia,
Schnee ;((( gestern kamen die Schneeflocken mal für ein kurzes Gastspiel vorbei.
Deine Karten sind der Hammer, beide!! Die Babykarte ist ganz wundervoll, ich habe diese Technik auf meiner to-do Liste stehen und Karte Nr2 der Wahnsinn, diese Idee und diese Farben, die werde ich gnadenlos liften.
Vielen lieben Dank für deine nicht enden wollenden Inspirationen.
Eine gute Zeit Elisabeth

Love the baby card and the tile looks great.
All our snow has gone but I can see it on the nearby hills and some roads are still closed. Why do we grind to a halt with snow. After all it is winter and other places manage. x

Das Video habe ich mir gleich "reingezogen", eine tolle Idee. Die behalte ich im Hinterkopf, mal sehen, wann und wie ich sie umsetze.
Danke für den Hinweis.
Deine Karte ist mal wieder wunderbar!!!

I LOVE your little duck, and your stacked die cuts card in AMAZING!
Will have to sign up for the class at a later date. Have done that before and the only difference is the discounts/prizes/and live comments. You still get to learn from the awesome instructors. I have referred back to several of the older classes several times.

What a darling little duck on your gorgeous snippets card Cornelia! And I do love the layered technique you used on the other card - very effective!

Love the tile using Julie's technique. I took the On line classes too. I think this was my favorite technique.
Your MIM card is so pretty. Great cards.

Susanne Vargas said...

Wieder zwei fabelhafte Karten! Die Enten"fliese" ist ja zu goldig und der Embossing Folder perfekt dafür. Und die MIM Karte ist auch spitze!

Kara Lynne said...

Darling duck tile! Such a great technique. I love your MIM card, especially with the white layer on top.

What an adorable little duck tile, Cornelia ... so lovely against the thread and the wonderful curved embossing! Love the zesty green you've used to layer up your second card ... so striking! Anita :)

That sweet tile is adorable! And the cover plate is perfect in those limes. Wish we had some of white stuff in Central CA!

Kim Heggins said...

Sweet! Love the little duck tile, too darn cute and your layered cover plate card is fabulous in greens. I'm so ready for spring!

Kylie said...

I love your cards Cornelia, but WOW look at that snow! I don't see any snow here so that looks amazing to me. Thanks so much for playing along at Happy Little Stampers xx

Andrea und Annemarie said...

Das ist ja eine klasse Idee, die Cuts zu layern! Merk ich mir! Sieht wirklich toll aus. Danke fürs Mitspielen bei IN{K}SPIRE_me und lieber Gruss, Annemarie

JoAnn said...

Love both of your cards. I like how you layered the cover-up dies. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Seize the Birthday.

Loll Thompson said...

Hi Cornelia. That tile is so cool. What an amazing effect and looks brilliant with the tissue paper and dry embossed background --- sweet card. Another great idea to layer die-cuts slight off-set to achieve lots of depth and dimension with the different shades. Thanks so much for playing along at Happy Little Stampers. Loll xx
