STAMPlorations Inspiration #136

Hi Everyone,
its inspiration time at STAMPlorations!
This time I played with Shirley Bampton's stamp line The Bees Knees.

My stamp supplies:


When you see this card you might be reminded about Ardyth from MASKerade and you are right - I CASEd one of her cards for her birthday celebration over at the Muse.
This is the card I choose to basically blatantly CASE copy:

You can see I made only very minor changes - colored in some of the leaves to get more of a rainbow color scheme (Ardyth likes to do that) and added glitter to my glossy accents centers. Spared myself the black frame, but used the stitched die  instead.

to get 20% off on all stamps, stencils, and dies on all regular- and sale-priced items in the store.

All our  Inspiration Project posts have a monthly random drawing - 1 commenter wins a $10 gift certificate. So look at all those fabulous cards the Inspiration Girls made and leave them some love! It may pay off :)

Linking up with:
Muse Challenge  - CASE Ardyth

Happy Stamping!

Blatant or not, it's a terrific CASE and I love the rainbow effect and those shimmery flower centers. Adore clean and simple...wish I did as well as you do with it.
So schön liebe Cornelia!

Love the cards - clean and simple.
If we didn't get ideas from others,
it would be hard to continually
produce new designs.
thanks for sharing.

Wonderful card Cornelia, love the flowers you used. Its funny when I see a card I like sometimes I cant see past the stamps that a being used and its as if it won't look as good unless its exactly the same. Then you show me its quite simple to look at what you have and go with the flow.

Love your interpretation of Ardyth's card; I especially love the slight adjustments you make to make the card your own. Great job!

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
