So Suzy Snowflakes

Hi Everyone,

I am playing with the latest release stamps, creating a Christmas card. I have been making them all year long, but I still have the feeling I am behind. Time to increase the production, I guess...

My So Suzy Stamps:

Snowflakes Large, Medium and Small, Noel

I started out heat embossing those pretty snowflakes in white onto white card stock.

Used distress inks to sponge a blue ombre background.

Wiped off the excess ink from the snowflakes. I spritzed some water onto the card. Heat embossed NOEL onto vellum and added silver tape to my vellum strip.

Love how this turned out!

Wow, Cornelia, what a lovely card! The heat embossed snowflakes show up so beautifully against your ombre background. Love the way you've used those distress oxide inks. Spritzing the water on the finished background really adds a lot of additional interest. The silver tape and rhinestones are a perfect finish to your card. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

Now the song "Here comes Suzy Snowflake" is running through my head, Cornelia. I love the look of inking behind embossed snowflakes and yours embossed so well. I've had a few fails with this technique.

What a fun way to bring those snowflakes together in your design. Love the background blue because it's so vivid against the white of the snowflakes.Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful card on our Watercooler Wednesday challenge this week. Loved it!

Beautiful card and I love the delicate design of these snowflakes so I just had to go and order them cause of course I don't have enough stamps (ho hum). I love the blending and how you used the vellum and silver ribbon. So beautiful Cornelia.

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?
