You are my Most Favorite

Hi Everyone,

Conil from Which Craft? inspired me to play along with the Ellen Hudson pin sights challenge. She made the most gorgeous card - you have to go over and see it! Initially I was not thrilled about the colors - a bit drab....but after seeing her card I gave it a try.

I made the background paper with water color. Added the sentiment (Neat&Tangled) and the die cuts (Ellen Hutson)

 As you can see, I also added some splatters, Washi tape and enamel dots. My husband thought its too busy. Perhaps he is right.

I think its okay - it does not always have to be CAS, right?

Happy stamping!

No really doesn't have to be CAS and I love it! Gorgeous how you've used the colours, the water coloured striped background and all the elements make one fabby card....Maybe we shouldn't always show our Husbands our finished card...That's caught me out before too. Had a little chuckle about that x

Hi Cornelia!

Anything you make is always great in my book. I suspect your beloved hubs is used to more CAS cards from you - this one is lovely with the little more detail for a change.

Ha! Now try vintage to send him running for the hills! :)

Schon witzig, dass wir gleich hintereinander gepostet haben! Deine Karte ist toll! Nicht CAS, das stimmt, aber du "darfst" ja auch mal was anderes probieren... ;) Ich mag die Streifen!

I think it was a matter of opinion, it doesn't look too busy to looks spectacular. Honestly gorgeous. Initially,wasn't sure about the colors myself, so kind of ignored them. But yous has incorporated them all and beautifully. Thanks so much for the shout out, it's much appreciated.

I think it's a great card from difficult colours - they wouldn't be what I chose off hand! I don't think it's too busy at all either. I love the streaks of blue on the background mixed with the gold down the side. xx

Just spotted your response to my comment - sniggering here! Why not link up into the Playground - now I BET that CAS die I have on offer as a prize would meet with the Bosses approval :)

Been to dentist today for a back tooth filling - why do I now feel my grin is as wide as a Muppet's? :(

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
