A Bird and a Hippo

Hi Everyone, 

you probably are thinking now I that I am completely crazy, but don't worry, I'm not....
I made this card specifically for my blogging friend Carol from Just me: c, after she left me a real funny blog comment about the birds being larger than hippos in her part of the world...never mind that she lives in Canada and they ain't havin' hippos there, chuckle...


Used one of those crazy birds by Tim Holtz. The sentiments are by Stamplorations - Noteworthy and Hero Arts. Also used one of the Mixed Media Grunge stamps. The hippo is by Rubber soul.
The colors I got from Colour me....! - see below. Added splatters, of course.

Love the story about your card, Cornelia! That's the awesome thing about being a stamper, is the ability to custom create cards. Super cute and I'm sure your friend will just love it! Thanks for playing along with us this week at Colour Me!

Hahahaha...You are AWESOME and I LOVE, LOVE and LOVE your bird-bigger-than-the hippo card! I kid you not: the ravens here ARE as big as hippos and even worse, they have 'face recognition.' So, those people who try to shoo them away, guaranteed their cars will be, shall we say, "splattered". True story! Anyway, I adore this marvelous creation and I'm exponentially touched my comment sparked your inspiration! You're a gem, my friend! Hugs and love coming your way...

Da ist dir mal wieder eine "Kicherkarte" gelungen. Ich musste herzhaft kichern!!! diese beiden Tiere haben so (fast) gar nichts gemeinsam - und vertragen sich doch.
Schönen Sonntag, liebe Grüße,
Flo

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
