Two Birthday Cards

Hi Everyone,

I made two cards today - both for kids I know. The first one is going to a little boy - I hope he likes chameleons! I for sure do!
I got those stamps on my recent trip to the Allentown stamp show and was itching to try them out . They are by Local King Rubber stamps. Aren't they amazing?



The sentiment is by Simon Says. The chameleon on the right comes with a matching die, the other one I fuzzy cut. I mounted both with foam tape. 


I am linking up this card with:
Sparkle and Shine - see inspiration photo below.


My second card I made with the Shopping our Stash challenge - You stamped with what? Such a fun theme - had to play!!!


Well  I think its pretty obvious with what I stamped - my fingers. And then added some doodles. The colors I got from the current Color Throwdown challenge - see picture below. And then I thought I might be able to get this into Less is More - the want to see 3 stamps, which I used - for the sentiment. Fingers aren't stamps really, or what do you think?


Lets see if I get disqualified from LIM.... keeping my fingers crossed.....

Here are the inspiration pictures:




Happy Stamping!

Die erste Karte ist ja DER Hingucker!!!
Die zweite Karte kannst du direkt bei der Polizei abgeben, dann habe die mal lustige Fingerabdrücke und nicht immer nur diese langweiligen.

Love the Birds! At first I wondered who made the stamps. Then, of course, I read your post. Genius! I will have to case that one of these days. Thanks for your inspiration. FYI, I went to Joy Clair and ordered stamps..I first saw the link on your blog. She has some great stamps!

Such fun cards Cornelia, the chameleons are amazing and the dark background makes them pop. Love the birds you created too, the sentiment grounds them perfectly.

Love and hugs

Wow what vibrant and fun colours on the chameleons card, even if he doesn't like them, he's going to love this card! The second card is fun and brought a smile to my face, so very cute and clever. I actually didn't 'see' the finger printing, thought it was a stamp so that's ok with LIM lol xx Creative and fun

Tenia Nelson said...

Good grief girl, you've been so busy. And just look at these darling cards you made. LOVE (all caps and bold type) those chameleons. The way you made them come alive is brilliant, googly eyes and all. They look as though there just morphing into the background color. Of course, fingers count as stamps. Those doodled birds still have me giggling. They're so cute. Wow! was this ever a fun post to read.

Wanda Cullen said...

How clever to create birds from finger prints! What a fun card and a unique way to feature the throwdown colors! So glad you joined us in the challenge this past week!

Sid said...

Brilliant idea and the card you have made is fabulous !

Chrissie said...

Those birds are the cutest!
The expressions on their faces is magic!
Fingers are decidedly not stamps!
Great card Cornelia!
Thanks so much
