Addicted to Stamps and More #134 and Spotlight Sneak Peek

Hi Everyone,

Its challenge time at ATSM! For the next two week its going to be CAS - just my thing! And hopefully yours, too!


I made a birthday card, because for some reason I always need more and never seem to have enough.... I was inspired by this weeks Make it Monday, where the talented Ashley Newell shows us a video about  stamps and doodling. Since I  mainly own die cuts from Papertrey and not so many stamps that would fit this theme I made my own out of fun foam, using my latest Papertrey dies (just got the order a few days ago) and cut those in fun foam - it works so well - voila - you have our own stamps, spending only a fraction of the money! I doodled around the stamps as you can see. Gives you kind of a cool effect....a little more tremor and one would think I drank too much ;)
Added tiny enamel dots - do you know about this month House of Cards challenge - its enamel dots - thought I'll let you know.....


Our wonderful sponsor this time is:

 the winner will receive a $20 GIFT VOUCHER

Your card was so striking, I had to come and have a closer look. What a talented crafter you are to make your own stamps and no wonder your card is so eye catching. SUPERB!!!
Pam said…
Love this! Brilliant and beautiful.
Julie B said…
Wow Cornelia this is such a clever use of your dies. I've made simple shapes with funky foam before but never thought to use the more delicate ones. Great idea! :)
inkyfingy said…
I enjoyed exploring your blog...I must find out more about making fun foam stamps, sounds like...well, fun. Your doodling is great and I just love the recycled butterfly! Congratulations on being in the spotlight. Di

ich finde die Anordnung vom Sentiment total gelungen und die Highlights an Flasche und Glas geben dem Ganzen Tiefe und Dimension

Such a fresh, festive card, Cornelia! And clever you for converting dies into stamps. I'm having 'fun foam frustration' because the only stuff I can find comes in multi-colour packs and non-adhesive. Maybe that's what it is, though. Apparently, I'm clueless, so if you have a chance, do you have a photo/link to what you're using. I want fun foam! Again, awesome card!

Fabulous doodling, Cornelia ... and I love that gorgeous green against the crisp white! How cool that you made your own stamps! How about linking up with SSS Monday ... it's a 'green' week?! Anita :)
Susanne Vargas said…
Muss mal wieder deine Kreativität bewundern: Wenn man keine passenden Stempel hat, macht man sich einfach welche! Sieht echt gut aus!
Hi Cornelia!
Love the card and what a great idea to use fun foam to make your own stamps and add to it by doodling! You are so creative!

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...

The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey.

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
