I meant stamp set. I have most of the others in this artsy collection. Thanks for clarifying.

What a lovely time I've spent catching up with all your creativity over the last few weeks or so, Cornelia ... such a fabulous array of inspiration! Sorry it's not possible for me to comment on each one (you'd be waiting forever!)... I did love the big splats for your daughter's card (congratulations to her getting to grad school in Munich) ... that kaleidoscope of butterflies was stunning ... and this beauty is just so bold and dramatic ... gorgeous! Hoping (!) to stay up to date now!! Hugs, Anita :)

My dear Cornelia! I have NOT been ignoring your gallery; indeed, I have left comments on pretty much all your amazing cards, but a stroll back shows they haven't been sticking! Between blogger's shenanigans and our internet malfunctions, I'm about ready to pull out my hair! The plus side of checking on my comment status is seeing your fabulous creativity for a second go-round! So much inspiration and ingenuity that you've wiped away my weather-induced feeling of gloom (yet again a thunderstorm warning day!) and replaced it with mega-watt smiling. Your interpretation of Shalu's card: striking and gorgeous! I have that rose and still, it awaits a play date. You've given me incentive to bring it out...
Hugs~c (hopefully this internet/blogger fiasco will right itself soon!)

An unusual card! I love these very beautiful roses - you had it painted. I love your belt, it's a very creative treatment card inspiration. Another great card and great inspiration for us.

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

Crackerbox Stamps - Sniff You First

   Hi Everybody,  Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. Affiliate links may be used in the links provided below. I made this card with some of the older stamps from  Crackerbox Stamps . It is a very simple card. I stamped the  Emu Adele  and colored it with Copics. Stamped the  sentiment  onto black card stock and heat embossed it in white. I wrapped some string around the card. Mounted the sentiment with foam tape. Lastly I added some splatters. The stamps I used: Emu Adele Sniff you first sentiment   I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting! Happy Stamping! Linking up with: Sisterhood of  Snarky Stampers  - s=snarky
