Super Day

Hi Everyone,
I have two cards for you today.
I have not played with Paper Smooches in a while - too busy with other schtuff, but it is time again!

I really liked the inspiration picture and tried to match it in my card. I used the set SUPER and heat embossed the cityscape in white. Sponged around it. Did the same with the sentiment. The car is also heat embossed and fuzzy cut. Die cut the panel with a Simon Says nesting die. Added some Bakers twine and used some colored paper as a frame. 
What do you think - did I capture it?

Here is a side view and you see the shininess of the embossed skyscrapers:

I am also linking this card with 
Make My Monday - embossing


And now for my second card: 
Made that for the Little Tangles challenge.

I finally managed to buy that cute stamp set - for once it was not sold out......

I made the pink strip with water color. Colored the cats with Copics and fuzzy cut them and the ball. Added Bakers Twine. the cats are mounted with foam tape.
That is the sketch;

I am also linking up this card with:
Snippets Playground - use a snippet

Happy Meow Day to all of you!

I think I would have missed the yellow in the original photo but it looks fabulous splashed against blue and white on your card. The embossing really makes a difference. Thank you for joining us at Make My Monday. Marina DT

Das Puppenhaus so zu interpretieren - darauf muss man erst einmal kommen!!
Aber es gefällt mir sehr gut.
Die Katzenkarte ist super. Ich habe ein dickes Grinsen im Gesicht, denn so sind diese Pelztiere!!!
Liebe Grüße,

Dumb-struck, that's all, just dumb-struck. You nailed the inspiration piece in the first card and the second card is simply brilliant and completely charming. You're truly amazing.

Two delights, Cornelia! Your PS card is a charming translation of the inspiration photo - and a reminder that my PS products haven't been receiving much attention of late, either! Your kittens...just a ball of fun, those two! Super sweet; super creative, both!

Die Katzen, die mit dem Wollknäul spielen, sind ja sowas von süß. Super gelungene Umsetzung des Sketch. Ich freue mich, dass du bei Little Tangles mitgespielt hast und hoffe wir sehen dich wieder :-). LG

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

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it. And here is a close -up: Challenges: Dynamic Duos CAS Colours and Sketches Addicted to Stamps and More Amusing Challenges Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die. --X-- Card for Maddy: You may know already about  Maddy ,  who  was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie.  She now has a relapse and this car

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
