Two Birthday Cards

Hi Everyone,
I bet once you see the inspiration picture from Stampin' Royalty you want to play along too!




I heat embossed with WOW gold embossing powder on rainbow paper, using my old wood Hero Arts Starburst Lace stamp. Added some gold Washi tape on the side and the sentiment. 
Here is that fantastic picture - I really liked the cake:


Another view of my card:



For my second card I got enticed by Inkspirational to play along in their current challenge - they have a fun inspiration picture - very appealing to me. I also knew right away what I would use to make my card and here it is:


I envisioned it differently and I am not really happy with the outcome. It actually was more work than I thought and I don't like the look of it. I think it's mainly that I did not really have the correct matching paper. Oh well. It is what it is. Somebody will get this card, that's for sure. Maybe one of my son's friends....


My supplies - Papertrey and Lil' Inkers (smile die)

Die erste Karte ist sehr elegant. Der goldene Stempel macht ordentlich was her.
Bei der zweiten Karte hast du einen Stempel oder Stencil benutzt??? Ich finde den nämlich großartig. Die gesamte Karte ist sehr schön, sie gefällt mir sehr gut.
Genieß den Sonntag, liebe Grüße

Hello Cornelia,
I love your first card. It looks like a million dollars :-) Very elegant, great inspiration! Of course, I do not have such a beautiful stamp, but I have idea of using other products :-) The second card is a wonderfully colorful and creates a great perspective effect. Thank you, I wish you a nice Sunday.
hugs,
Bozen

Stunning 1st card Cornelia, so sumptuous.
The 2nd is equally great, a great take on the photo inspiration. :)

Vicki Dutcher said...

2 fabulous inspired cards! That gold one is amazing - so much warmth coming from it!

C-A-N-N-O-T S-P-E-A-K! That's because both of these took my breath away. It was like going to a gallery and seeing one spectacular painting after another. That first card is something I could just dive into...unmatched color blending and that golden glimmer (*heavy sigh*). Then you top it off with the splendor of all that colorful shimmer on the second card...my eyes may never be the same. I truly do not understand why you're not pleased with it.

Susanne Vargas said...

Tolle Farben und Umsetzung der ersten Karte. Und ich weiss nicht, was du hast mit der zweiten... Die passt doch super für das Challengefoto. Allerdings weiss ich natürlich nicht, wie du sie dir vorgestellt hast...

SonjaK said...

Wow, mir ist regelrecht der Mund offenstehen geblieben, als ich deine erste Karte gesehen habe. Was für eine wunderbare Farbkombination! Und dieses herrliche embosste Mandala darauf - ich komme aus dem Schwärmen gar nicht mehr heraus. Das ist definitiv eine meiner Lieblingskarten von dir.

Anita in France said...

Those funky stripes are really cool, Cornelia ... especially set in the subtly shimmery background! Oh my, that gold medallion ... it's incredible ... rich, opulent, spectacular! Hugs, Anita :)

Kathy S said...

Die erste mit dem goldembossten Spitzendeckchen finde ich sehr edel und elegant, echt schön!
Die kalten Farben auf dem schimmernden Hintergrund der zweiten und die dicke schwarze Smile Stanze dazu sehen super cool aus!
