Oh Christmas Tree!

Hi Everyone,

I am back with another stenciled card. This time I used the same stencil twice, once with gold embossing paste and then with regular embossing paste.

I added white splatters and the gold thread. the sentiment is by STAMPlorations, mounted with foam tape.

Aaaah. You're really working hard on your Christmas cards. They're both gorgeous. Especially like the little beads you added to the cord on the 1st one...very pretty detail...and the second card, this is one of my favorite techniques with these fabulous embossing folders. Initially thought that it was 2 layers...which goes to prove, your masking is awesome.

Das Gold am Tannenbaum sieht aus wie Blattgold!!! gibt eine goldene Embossingpaste??? Davon habe ich noch nie gehört oder gesehen.. Da das Gold so ebenmäßig ist, sieht die Karte doppelt edel aus.
Auch die zweite Karte gefällt mir gut. Der Hintergrund macht was her!!!
Liebe Grüße,

Two beautiful cards Cornelia. Especially LOVE the gold embossed tree ... gorgeous. And looks amazing next to the white embossing paste tree. The splatters add so much interest.

And your faux metal card is beautiful. Love the shine and shimmer from the perfect pearls. Your turquoise background is such a gorgeous shade of blue. Thanks for playing along at Happy Little Stampers. xx

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
