Joy Clair - Spring Flowers

Hi Everyone,

did you see this gorgeous April Flower set at the Joy Clair stamp release blog hop? I made two cards with it:

I really like the way this card came out! Did some masking and fuzzy cutting (the umbrella and the boots). I added glossy accents to the boots. The sentiment is heat embossed and I grounded everything with that enamel dot. The background rain stamp is by IO. 

Here you can see the glossy accents better.
My second card:

For this card I did a lot of masking and colored everything with Copics

Hope you liked this!
Go and visit the Joy Clair blog to see the inspiration cards from our talented DT! And don't forget to play with us in the Joy Clair March challenge - the theme is Spring and we have a beautiful inspiration picture to give you some colors to play with!

Die erste Karte kann ich hier leider nicht sehen, aber bei Joy Clair habe ich sie mir angeschaut.
Da regnet es aber sehr heftig!!! Na ja, die Gummistiefel stehen sogar schon in einer Pfütze!!!
Hast du für die Regen"striche" einen Stempel oder sind die etwa alle per Hand gezogen???
Zutrauen würde ich es dir auf alle Fälle!!!
Die zweite Karte ist toll. Einen Schirm habe ich noch nie als Pflanzgefäß benutzt. Ob der das Wasser hält??? Oder stehen die armen Blumen immer im Trocknen??? *lachkaputt*
Liebe Grüße

What brilliant use of that background stamp, Cornelia ... love how the vibrant red brolly and shiny boots are the bright spots amid the rain! Your umbrella full of blooms is just delightful ... such fab masking and colouring! Hugs, Anita :)

Oh, I absolutely adore your umbrella cards! The red/black/white of the first is so striking; the flower-filled brolly of the second, day brightening! I need a pair of shiny red boots today...snowing and raining here...

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
