Some Cards before Mr. Linky expires.....


Hi Everyone,

I have been busy making all sorts of Christmas cards. After all I have to catch up from my month of inactivity. There is one advantage of being home .....although I would prefer to have my eyesight back and going to work. Sounds funny, but true.  At least card making saves me from falling into a depression.....



This card I made for Sparkle and Shine. The inspiration picture is below.  I also kind of fits the Cupcake Inspiration challenge. I smooshed and brushoed my background, adding some silver Inka gold to the mix. The stars a mix of Papertrey, Memory Box and Poppy dies. The sentiment is from Neat&Tangled.

 
I am also linking it up with:
 Inkspirational - Flake
CASual Fridays - Snowflakes


This card I made for Your Next Stamp, using their sketch. The cute stamp is from YNS, the Santa hat is Tim Holtz and the die cut sentiment is by Papertrey. I masked the background strip. I am also linking it up with Colour Q - see color inspiration below. 



The main reason I made this card is to send it to some little girl, who lost her family in a fire and got badly burned. Her wish is to get Christmas cards from all over the world. Click HERE, if you also want to send her one.

   

And my last card is for Merry Monday - the theme is Candy Cane. I am not so happy with this card - too red for my taste... All supplies for this card are by Simon Says. The candy canes are fuzzy cut and coated with glossy accents.

Liebe Cornelia,
deine Karten sind soooo lustig - weit entfernt von einer (hoffentlich nicht!!!) zu erwartenden Depression. Es ist wahr: das Nichtstun geht einem auf den Geist und macht nicht nur unzufrieden, sondern auch unleidlich. Ich kann dich sehr gut verstehen und auch, dass du dich ins Kartenbasteln stürzt, um nur irgendwas zu tun, selbst wenn es unnütz scheint. Allerdings sind Karten keineswegs unnütz, sie erfreuen den Macher, die Anschauer und letztlich den Empfänger. Und das ist gut so!!
Schöne, sehr schöne Werke zeigst du uns wieder.
Ganz liebe Grüße,
Flo

Wow, this is an amazing array of beauty. They're all so different, but awesome. Personally, I like your Candy Cane card...it's so festive and fun. And the cute little card for the little girl...hope this makes her Christmas a bit happier. Honestly, the snowflake card gobsmacked me right between the eyes. Such wonderful color and shimmer.

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
