Have a FIN-tastic Day!

Hi Everyone,

I am taking a break from showing you Christmas cards I made - although I still have a whole bunch of them, that did not yet make it onto the blog...perhaps I'll just leave them in my folder and pull them out in case I have another health crisis, which hopefully will not ever happen again...

Your Next Stamp has the cutest stamps and I love playing in their challenges. This time I am only going with the sketch, but I made it a bit asymmetric. 

The stamps are YNS, of course. I colored the fish with Copics and drew in a few more air bubbles. The background is a stencil by Memory Box and I die cut the squares with a Simon Says die.

And just for fun I added glossy accents to the  mask and the bubbles.

This is the YNS sketch:

Happy Stamping!

Dass Fische jetzt eine Taucherbrille brauchen ist der Verschmutzung der Weltmeere zu verdanken!!!*grins gaaaaanz breit*
Dein Fisch scheint aber gut damit zurecht zu kommen. Er sieht fröhlich aus.
Alles Gute für dich,

Cornelia *waving wildly* A zillion apologies for falling behind in commenting; hopefully, the 'telepathic' admiration came your way! No more health crises allowed, by the way! We missed you way toooo much! Anyway, I'm going to treat myself to a 'fin-tastic' time, catching up on your gallery! Your goggle-sporting fish, in his wavy, bubbly water, makes me smile...super sweet!

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

Crackerbox Stamps - Sniff You First

   Hi Everybody,  Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. Affiliate links may be used in the links provided below. I made this card with some of the older stamps from  Crackerbox Stamps . It is a very simple card. I stamped the  Emu Adele  and colored it with Copics. Stamped the  sentiment  onto black card stock and heat embossed it in white. I wrapped some string around the card. Mounted the sentiment with foam tape. Lastly I added some splatters. The stamps I used: Emu Adele Sniff you first sentiment   I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting! Happy Stamping! Linking up with: Sisterhood of  Snarky Stampers  - s=snarky
