Happy Little Stampers Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Not only is Little Stampers happy, but I am, too! I finally can make cards! It's still a little tricky, but I manage, yeahhh!
I used the HLS sketch for my inspiration (see below)

I used patterned paper for the background. The Christmas tree is a Papertrey Die. I cut it on card stock and fun foam. I stamped the Hero Arts Merry Christmas Tree onto my card stock tree - it fits well enough, I think. The other sentiment is by Winnie & Walter. Added those little Impression Obsession birds to brighten up my card.

Also added a tiny silver bell and silver embroidery thread.

I am linking up with:

Christmas Cards all year Round  - oh Christmas Tree

I also want ot share a card with you that my sister made. She does not have a blog, but it deserves to be shown!

She used PP as background. The die cuts are by Ellen Hudson. 

I will link up her card with:

Happy Stamping!

Liebe Cornelia
Ich habe die Steine/Felsen purzeln gehört!!!!! Klasse!!!
Das ist wirklich wunderbar, dass es nun stetig bergauf mit dir geht. Jetzt kann Weihnachten kommen, dein schönstes Geschenk hast du schon.
Ich sehe schon, du knüpfst direkt an deine genialen Gestaltungsideen und -verwirklichungen an.
Aber gib Acht: deine Schwester macht sich auch sehr gut.
Genießt den 1. Advent in vollen Zügen bei ….. einem Glas Saft??? Sekt??? Selters??? (allem mit "S")

Welcome back to the world of blogging! You certainly came back with a bang! This card is goargeous and I love the rustic feel of it! And your sister definitely needs to get her own blog if she's going to knock out amazing creations like that.

I'd say the Hero Arts sentiment fits nicely into that really makes an impact against the woodgrain paper...and, of course, I LOVE the cardinals and the way you brought their color down into the body of the card. Very festive and beautiful. And your sister's certainly does deserve to be published. All that coppery goodness is gorgeous with the blue and the rustic background. The added bling is perfectly placed. So does this mean your entire family are artistically inclined????

Ganz toll ist deine Weihnachtskarte! Aber ich habe auch Angst, dass du es übertreibst! Pass auf!
Die Karte von deiner Schwester gefällt mir auch total gut!

Good to know that you are better now, Cornelia. It looks like beautiful cardmaking runs in the family. Your sister has the same talent :).

You are certainly one Happy Little Stampe!! So good to see you back, Cornelia, although you would never have thought you haven't crafted for so long because you are as good as ever! xx

So pleased to see that you are able to craft again. Love your Christmas tree card. I absolutely love the Thanksgiving card your sister made- great texture, super colours and some bling too. Great work. Thanks so much for playing along with our Thanks challenge here at The Male Room!

Gorgeous cards...your first card with that tree is so amazing!
Anita in France said…
Delighted to be seeing you more often, Cornelia ... your Christmas tree is gorgeous! Love the monochrome with those tiny pops of cardinal red ... and that sweet little ornament! Your sister's card is fabulous ... such delicious texture and dimension! Hugs, Anita :)

Your Christmas card, rustic with charming pops of red, is lovely! And your sister's card: most definitely it warrants being shown and applauded. A duo of delight here...
Joyce said…
These cards are both fantastic. I really love how you used that Christmas greeting stamp on an actual tree die cut. That was a clever idea. I have that stamp myself, and want to try out your inspiring idea. Thanks so much for playing along at Happy Little Stamper December Sketch Challenge.

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!
