One Layer Christmas CASE

Hi Everyone,

I am combining two Christmas challenges here. One is CASEing Christmas, where my blogging friend Rosi made a beautiful card for us to CASE - you'll see it below. And the second challenge is Shery's One Layer Christmas card challenge. Here the optional twist is use an angel. 
Now it does not look good in the angel department in my stash, but I have one, never used until now....its from Inkadinkadoo.


I did a lot of masking and some sponging. Used a pearlescent embossing powder by Sparkles and Sprinkles.  The sentiment is from STAMPlorations.

Here is Rosi's gorgeous card. 




I guess I'll start now making Christmas cards - so I won't run into problems by the time Christmas rolls around, which I guess will be about ...tomorrow....

Happy Stamping!

Fantastic card, Cornelia! Love that embossing powder you used. Great colours and design. Funny that you used the same stamp I did on my card. :-). So happy to see you playing along with us at OLCCC! Hope you play again. :-)

Steht denn schon wieder Weihnachten vor der Tür??? Eigentlich möchte ich erst mal so richtig schön warm Sommer haben.
Aber es ist schon richtig: man kann gar nicht früh genug anfangen, vor allem, wenn man so schöne Karten macht wie du!!!
Liebe Grüße,
Flo

Stunning. That ne angel has served you well. She's gorgeous embossed but to layer with red (or is that pink) ink is brilliant.

What a beautiful card! It has become even more winter after adding blue. Great idea for this stamp. I have it too, but not yet used it. Thanks for the inspiration.

Cornelia, your card is STUNNING! You glowing angel, the red flourishes, the blue surroundings, the sentiment = perfection. Indeed, I think this could be your Christmas go-to card should you need to mass produce (although I suspect that you, as I am, aren't fond of making multiples of the same thing). Love 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
