7 Days 7 Sketches Day 2 and 3

Hi Everyone,

playing with 7 Days 7 Sketches - onto day 2 and 3:

 First DAY 2, of course....I had a LOT of trouble with that sketch. My first try was so bad, it was unsalvageable - almost unheard for me. I threw it out. My second try is okay. I should have probably been not so focused on Father's Day, but whatever....

I think the sketch is easier for a layout than a card - but that is probably just a meager excuse.....

Materials: stamps: Hero Arts - Shoot for the Moon (Cl773), Papertrey - ancient Fathers Day set, Neat&Tangled - big splatter
Simon Says square stitched die
Dylusion ink spray splatters
doodled frame-not a supply, just hand drawn

Now DAY 3:

A much easier sketch for me :)))

Papertrey - ancient Fathers Day set - cut away that frame that you see in the above card, should have cut if off for that one, but still was to intimidated to touch the Holy Grail of my Papertrey stamps....
Hero Arts - Shoot for the Moon (Cl773)
 QuicKutz dies - made the star stencil with it and cut out a smaller one
MME patterned paper
silver beads and embroidery thread

Das lese ich mit sehr viel Beruhigung, das auch Du Dich mal mit einem Sketch schwer tust ..*grins*, da ich ja sonst immer staunend vor Deinem Blog sitze und mich frage, wo nimmt sie die Ideen her? Aber am Ende wieder eine Punktlandung, tolle Karten, tolle Umsetzungen ... perfekt!!

Hallo Cornelia,
du hast wenigstens auf der ersten Karte an die Spritzer gedacht!!!
Bei mir sind sie in Vergessenheit geraten :-(((
Die zweite Karte mit den verschiedenfarbigen Sternen gefällt mir seeeeehr gut.
Klasse Farbabstufungen hast du gestempelt.
Eigentlich ist alles toll, man kann nicht nur das eine oder andere rauspicken.
Genieß den Sonntag,

From where I'm sitting, a whole lot of 'amazing' is before me! Both are fabulous (somehow I can't picture you creating any 'duds'). Love the 'space' theme that runs through both. The stripe of triangle border...what impact it adds!

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
