Guest Designing at Craft Stamper

Hi Everyone,

I am so delighted to be Guest Designer for the July TIMI challenge over at Craft Stamper for week two of the month long challenge.
The theme is easy - take a stamp! But is has to be the real thing, not a digi.

Took me a while to figure out what to do.....

I finally settled on that fun hippo from Katzelkraft. I thought it pairs up perfectly with the sentiment from Rubber Necker. The background I did with an ARTplorations stencil (STAMPlorations) and the wonky stitched border is the brand new Cutplorations die also from STAMPlorations.

Just imagine what else you could do with that fun stamp!

Happy Stamping and don't forget to link up at the TIMI challenge!

Mac Mable said…
This made me smile...Yes the stamp and sentiment work great together. I shall now look at my cloud stencil in a different to try those fabulous clouds you've done. Thank you for the inspiration x

Beautiful the cloud background too much..

Funny card and congrats on your DP !

Talk about an encouragement card...this is it. Flying hippos conjure up all kinds of scenarios in my brain. It's just so very clever that your sentiment really says it all. And pink for the hippo is just plain perfect. That background really shows off your amazing stencilling skills, as well.

Imagination can do anything, knows no limitations. Exactly as you did with the stamp. Super fun. I love your cloud - they are clear and beautifully tangled. Congratulations the guest design. Craft Stamper has gained a lot :-)

ACK! I love this! A hippo with wings (definitely a cousin to the hippo-sized ravens in our town!) and he's PINK! That face....toooo cute! You've created a wonderful cloudy sky for him to fly through and the sentiment is marvelously inspiring! Imagination in plentitude here, my friend!
What an absolutely inspiring card! I love the sentiment and the scene you created could not be more perfect! Your coloring and shading is exquisite and that sky is so life-like! I like the stitching detail around the edges, too. This came together beautifully and I thought it was a unique and welcome interpretation of our red, white and blue theme. Thank you so much for sharing your skills with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

Oh my, this is brilliant, Cornelia ... gorgeous cloudy sky and a fun, fun, fun pink hippo ... such a cute way to represent that fabulous sentiment! I'm smiling! Hugs, Anita :)

This made me chuckle, Corneila. A flying hippo in a fabulously inked sky and a great sentiment that ties it all together.

There is a saying ..."when pigs fly" ...but never a hippo fly! This is so cute. Thanks for joining us at Simply Create Too. Janelle (DT) :)

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
