So Suzy Christmas Baubles

Hi Everyone,

I am up on the So Suzy blog today with a card I made with those fabulous little baubles from the November release!

So, how did I make this card?

I spritzed some Dylusion inks onto a sheet of plastic and smooshed water color paper in it and let it dry.

I then took the baubles and inked them in a lighter color  and spritzed with water or just spritzed them with water to get kind of a ghosting technique. To be honest with you - I was not thrilled with what I got. I thought it was too much. So what to do - I hate throwing things out (I rarely ever do...) - so I cut the panel diagonally. Thinking half of too much could be good, right?

Fiddled around with it on black card stock and thought it need something else, so I smooshed a scrap piece of card stock in the same color and heat embossed some baubles in white. Fuzzy cut them. And played around placing them onto my card.  Settled on a triangle, mounted them with foam tape and heat embossed the sentiment.

Still not happy.  But you know what -  a little gold embroidery thread and sequins can work wonders!

In the end I really liked my card! Hope you like it as well!

Happy Stamping!

You did a great job with the ghosting technique, Cornelia and those beautifully vivid colours look lovely with the black.

The black really makes the ornaments pop.
It's a great contrast to the section
with the stamped ornaments in the
Great card.

Und ich mag Deine Karte auch, sehr sogar. Und ich habe mich gerade wieder entdeckt, denn mir geht es auch gelegentlich so, aber mit ein bisschen tüfteln und ausprobieren kommt man am Ende zu einem schönen Ergebnis!!

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

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.
