Uniko Challenge Reminder

 Hi Everyone,

I have the honor of making a reminder card for the Uniko challengeThe theme for the current challenge is Easter/Spring! 

Beverly was really generous and sent me a lot of digi stamps from Uniko to use for this card. Little did she know that I am a digidiot (digital idiot). So I putzed around basically forever and could not get the grouping I wanted with the outline flowers. Worked without problems with those black ones. So I finally gave up....



Printed the black flowers onto water color paper. Took watercolors and puddled around them - it has a kind of tropical spring feel. I hope you forgive me, but this is the best I could do....


.....fast forward a day. Did some thinking....
and here is card #2

I figured I can just print some of those pretty flowers, color them (used water colors) and cut them out! I popped them up with foam tape. The background I made with an iStencil. I also added tickle to the center of those flowers.
The inspiration for this card I got at the Time Out challenge, where Marjan made that fabulous card:



Time to invest into some real Uniko stamps!!!!!
I hope you play along - I certainly am - with card #2!

Zwei Karten, die unterschiedlicher nicht sein können!!!
Bei der oberen habe ich sofort die Assoziation eines Vulkanausbruchs, wenn ich den Hintergrund betrachte.
Ich liebe Vulkanausbrüche, aber nur aus der Ferne und am liebsten im Fernsehen. Da werden sie immer so spektakulär gezeigt und man ist auf der sicheren Seite.
Die zweite Karte scheint passend für eine ältere Dame - oder??? - farbmäßig meine ich - oder??? Aber trotzdem schön.
Liebe Grüße

even though you found the digi images a challenge you've managed to create 2 fab cards! Love the colours of the second and your striped background x Lindsey

Happy you did some rethinking. As much as I like the first card with the bold colours, I do think that your second card is so much more Spring-like. Love the soft colours against that fun stencilled background.

Two absolutely stunning cards! Great to have you as Uniko Guest Designer this month.
Alle blumig und trotzdem doch unterschiedlich. Eins haben sie aber gemeinsam, sie schauen alle toll aus!
Liebe Grüße und schöne Ostertage

Well, to me the other digidiot, these say your kind of a digigenius. Impressed with the way you made those black flowers really pop. The watercoloring is fabulous...and the second card made me swallow my gum...Wow! You really know how to use those flowers now.

Ich habe auch nicht keine Erfahrung mit digistamps (obwohl ich einige runtergeladen habe, aber ich vergesse sie immer), aber du hast eine gute Lösung gefunden! Gut sind sie geworden, deine Karten. Der Hintergrund der zweiten gefällt mir besonders gut!
Frohe Ostern,
Susanne

I love both these cards -- that first one reminds me of Hawaii -- a volcano going on in the bg - it turned out amazing! Leave it to you to make a 2nd fabulous inspired card -- totally awesome.

These are both just lovely, Cornelia ... the first is deliciously dramatic with those dark blooms against the tropical colours ... and the second is soft and delicate and dreamy ... the flowers are fab against that cool background! Delighted to have you playing along with us at Time Out! Hugs, Anita :)

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
