Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies July Challenge

Hi Everyone,

I am back with a card for the Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies challenge!

I die cut the New York Skyline with watercolor paper and kept both pieces together. I then splattered water color onto the skyline and moved the color around a bit until I liked what I saw. Separated the pieces and  mounted it onto a dark blue card stock with tiny silver speckles. Added the heat embossed sentiment (STAMPlorations - Born to Roam)

 As the challenge says - ANYTHING is possible, just use your dies! 

So come on and play along - that's what you can win:

Love this card, it's given me an idea. I saw a painting ages ago and this reminded me of it. Might have kindled something in the little grey cells! :)

Such an artsy and colourful card. Great to combine the sentiment stamp with this die cut, works so well. Spooky but I am 'playing' with this die cut as we speak xx I shall have to think again after seeing this fabulous inspiration. Love how you've used the die twice and the glorious colours x

I love the way you make that watercoloring look like paint dripping - I mean, I have seen this scene with watercolors, but this is unique even among them - I would have loved yo see you make it - I guess its something I would love to try myself! Love your card Cornelia!

Just look at that remarkable, vibrant color. Amazing over that skyline die. Just absolutely gorgeous dripping down the diecut. Extraordinarily beautiful and the sentiment is spot on.

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
