Spring and Winter

Hi Everyone,

I have a Twofer today, as Darnell would call it and two very different cards. The first one I made for the Ellen Hudson Pinsights challenge  - see the mood board below.

I used the Mondo Hydrangea - heat embossed it onto Bristol paper and colored it with a combination of oxide inks and water brush pens. The die cut thanks is by CUTplorations.


Lovely, that mood board, isn't it? I also added Wink of Stella to the hydrangea, but it dos not show well in my pictures.

My second card I made for Merry Mondays. Since Muse Christmas Visions is now monthly I need to play with the "competition" to get my Christmas cards done without too much stress in the end.

The theme is "Kraft". Heat embossed the Hero Arts wreath (CG485) and added tiny pearls and gems. Added the twine. Again the die cuts are from CUTplorations.

I especially LOVE your card made with kraft cardstock. The white wreath looks fantastic against your card base.

The Mondo Hydrangea is Mondo gorgeous. Amazing color scheme and love the loose leaf on the panel. Very artsy.
As far as the Christmas card, I never met a wreath I didn't love as evidenced by my HUGE stamp collection of them. This card is a winner, hands down. Crazy about those touches of red.

Dynamic duo of cards for 'opposite' seasons! The hydrangea is gorgeous; the white/kraft classy! Once again, marveling at your diversity...

Loving both of the 'Twofers'. Fabulous take on the moodboard with your first amazing card. Beautifully coloured, love the pop of vibrant lime and the dimension of the sentiment...perfect x Such a classy second card. Again the dimension of the sentiment die cut sits so perfectly against the kraft, white and red. You are on a roll, so creative and stunning! x

Your painting on the hydrangea is gorgeous, Cornelia. I love how you added the ribbon and bottom border to your wreath card.

The crisp snowy white wreath against the kraft is fabulous, Cornelia, so pretty with the gems and pearls ... and how gorgeous is that softly coloured hydrangea ... simply lovely! Hugs, Anita :)

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
