Birthday Fishes

Hi Everyone,

I have not played in the YNS challenges in a while - always too many other challenges to participate and I kept missing the deadlines...NOT this time!!!

I don't do a lot of sketches, but I really liked that one. Ignored the color challenge - you don't have to combine the two. I first wanted to use a stencil for the water strip, but then I came upon this patterned paper, that has been in my stash now pretty much forever. Time to use it!!! It has a nice shimmer to it - does not really show in the picture.....

This is the sketch and the stamp set:

 YNS Sketch 18Snorkel Fun Fishy

I don't think that card requires a lot of explanation on how I did it. So I'll spare you that. Filled up the shaker with microbeads only to not distract from the cute fish.

Big wide smile on my face the minute I saw this terrific (& refreshing) card. Lovin' that fish, you were right not to use too much bling in the shaker. And that patterned paper is perfect.
Fabulous card Cornelia :) That paper is fab-I love it when ! "shop" my stash and find something I have had for a hundred years and find its perfect for a project!

Well you rocked this sketch. It works so well for the fish and I love that it looks like water in your shaker card. Super cute and fun! I am very happy that you had time to play along with our sketch challenge at Your Next Stamp.

The paper works beautifully with this cute fish looking out of the porthole. Love that you did this as a shaker card & the vellum was a nice touch to avoid covering up a single bit of that perfect dp. Cute design, beautifully colored, and a terrific bday card. TFS

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
