Two Birthday Cards

Hi Everyone,

I am playing with my HLS stamps to take part in this month CAS challenge - CASE the designer.


This month  it is the Queen of Clean - Shona Chambers from Twine Around! Isn't her card fabulous! 

    

I generally like one layer cards very much, but not for this CASE. Thought I have to come up with something different.... My version is not as CAS as Shona's - that's why she is the Queen of Clean...
I used all HLS stamps and the butterfly die. The round circle is made with a SSS die and the little butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch. Added liquid enamel to the body of the butterfly and propped him up with foam tape.


TCP Tuesday - animals
Stamp, Ink, Paper - sketch, using a circle instead of a square

   SIP Sketch Challenge 35 800

  My next card I made for the Sparkle and Shine challenge  - they have an amazing inspiration photo this week - I could not resist!


Used that fab background stamp by Hero Arts, heat embossed it in silver, because I don't have any grey embossing powder and colored it with Copics. The pretty sentiment is by Happy Little Stampers.

NOW you've done it...accomplishing the feat of rendering me speechless (well, nearly speechless) with these two amazing cards. The butterfly: completely in love (I used the same butterfly recently...post coming tomorrow). A take on Shona's card that has me totally blown away! Your colourful triangles card...oh my oh my oh my...ingenious! In awe...You sure know how to make a Saturday even better!
Hugs~c

Me again: thank you for keeping an eye out for me with contests/challenges, but alas, I'm not the oh-so-lucky pcm. I'm not sure how my name appears; anything from cm, to ~c to ~carol to...who knows! Hope you're having a fabulous day, with plenty of crafting time!
Hugs~c

Queen of Clean.....I wish my house was as clean as my cards...LOL!!!! Thank you so much for CASEing my card, you brought your amazing style and totally pumped up my design. I so love it!!! And your rainbow, triangle number is stunning.....I so see 'Winner' written all over it!

Ruth said...

Wow!! Both of your cards are stunning - I love your CASE on Shona's card - the addition of pink to the design gives it that little bit extra. I adore your sparkly triangle background card. Just gorgeous with those extra colours. Crafting up a storm right now! Xx

Beide Karten sind wunderbar, ich könnte mich gar nicht entscheiden, welche mir besser gefällt.
Liebe Grüße

Gorgeous and vibrant first card. Love the colours you've used and the liquid enamel, fabulous take on Shona's card. Looks like you had fun on the second card colouring in that striking background stamp. The sentiment stands out really well against it... Thank you for the inspiration today x

Two gorgeous cards, Cornelia! The circle shapes background on the butterfly card is so cool, and I love the metallic embossing on the second. Thanks so much for joining us this week at Stamp Ink Paper!

Think you may have won both these challenges. Your butterfly card is lovely...the colors so vibrant & the layout is perfect as is tha background. Can we talk about the gorgeousness of your 2nd birthday card. Think silver is the perfect choice to highlight all those vibrant triangles. My mouth is watering over this card.
