Winter Striped Tree

 Hi Everyone,

I played with my iStencils - this beautiful tree stencil is one of my favorites

It's called Winter Striped Tree. So clean and modern, yet the swirls add a  lot of interest.

 For the white card I stenciled twice - once in lime green. Then I moved the stencil a smidgen and sponged again with a darker green. Then I splattered gold splatters with Fine Tec and let it dry. Die cut the sentiment from the card and with fun foam and put it all together. Added the little "wishes", Washi tape and enamel dots

The second card is essentially the same, except that I stenciled only once (I actally made that card first). Twice is better. Did not splatter (another mistake)

The die cuts I used are from Papertrey. this card got some little gems and of course Washi tape.

Happy Stenciling everyone!

Beide Karte sehen toll aus, wobei mir die türkis noch besser gefällt.
Warum - kann ich nicht sagen.
Liebe Grüße

As you know, there are no mistakes in crafting. Besides, both these cards are truly gorgeous. Can't figure out why you'd think there is an error. Love this stencil, too. And the double stenciling does give the first card more depth but I'm crazy about both of them.

Great contemporary stencil. Love the way you did the colours twice on the first card. Great splats too and real Wow cards...particular the first one x

That’s one amazing stencil and I love how you’ve made it have a shadow in a different green. The splatters add the required amount of bling for a Christmas card. Gorgeousness! Xx

Ahhhh, here it is, Cornelia ... and how stunning those trees are ... in both versions! The kraft one with the single stencilling is a rustic delight ... and I love how you took it up a notch on the white one with the double stencilling and gorgeous gold splatters ... elegant and beautiful! Thanks so much for the shout-out, my friend ... so delighted to have you playing along with us at Time Out! 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
